My dell inspiron m5030 laptop goes to my background screen with nothing to choose.wat happened?

They are hiding behind background screen and discussing between services in background for conspiracy against you. Not really as it was, windows is processing a start up item, if it really doesn't load anything perhaps your explorer is stop working or taking a longer time to load, try pressing Ctrl+alt+del, open task manager, click on "Processes" tab and try look for "explorer.exe", if it doesn't show there you go to "File" menu and click "new task (run)" and type explorer, if you can find explorer.exe in task manager, right click to it and select "end task" then after it gone repeat step before.

What is debugging?

First I will suggest you to update your display drivers to avoid black screen
Just go the site of your Laptop manufacture. Once there enter the model number or service tag no of the laptop then request driver (usually found in the web site's "Support Section"). There you should be able to find all the drivers for your model laptop
After that Open task manager and close any unnecessary processes running in background
Click start>Run.. Type msconfig>enter>Start Up. Uncheck the boxes for the programs that you think you may not use often
Uninstall unnecessary programs (Games, crapware, toolbars, etc.)
Let me know if it helps you.
Use system utility tool like RegInOut to and fix registry and windows errors which causing these issues

I have somehow messup my Dell XPS M140. It starts normally, goes to the desktop, everything but the background disappears and it just stays that way. Anyone have any suggestions? I am just starting out...

Windows explorer is the process that runs the start menu, desktop icons, and many other things. It is likely that this process is being ended for some reason, possibly due to a virus. To restart this process, press ctrl+alt+delete on the keyboard, go into task manager, click new task, type explorer.exe, and click ok. I would recommend doing a full system virus scan after this to eliminate the problem in the future. Good luck!

Goto windows update, and make sure you have the latest version of Microsoft .net framework.. (also any other service packs for ie7 that you don't have, along with security updates)

Most of those sites use the .net platform, and that may cause issues if it is not up to date.

Other then that, you might try to re-install IE7, or, revert back to Ie6
