Nothing appears on the desktop

I have a huge problem!
When I first opened my laptop, the desktop completely disappeared. There was nothing on it, no icons no startup menu .. nothing! I even tried to get it on Safe Mode but it still didn't work. The only thing that does work is when I press on CTRL+ALT+DEL. Other than that, I don’t know what else to do. I don’t want to reinstall the whole system because I have some documents that I want to get back.
So I really need help from whoever is willing .. Thanks!

After opening window normally nothing appear in the screen

Ok at boot up press F8, when the Menu comes up, choose Safe Mode, but this time instead of going to the desktop, choose System Restore, follow instructions, and when the Calender type window comes up, simply choose a time BEFORE, the time it went faulty. This should completely restore you to working again. As long as there are NO other problems. -
