Have you tried shutting it off and restarting it again. Try removing the battery and all power and then turning it back on. Let me know if the desktop still fails to load

Start by doing a system restore, then, if that doesn't work, run a repair with your recovery or operating system disc.

    If the restore and repair don't work, then try reformatting the hard drive and installing a new operating system. If it has any issues during or after the format or install, then the hard drive has failed and will need replaced.

My laptop's (Toshiba Satellite A105-S361)desktop doesn't bring the desktop icons and the task bar after I loaded AVG 9 antivirus software. Why is that? Would you mind give me a solution, pls?


The desktop icons and the task bar would generally dissappear if you have a virus on the PC. However, sometimes improper software installations may cause undesired results like we have right now. Instead of trying uninstalling anything, try restoring the system to a previous point using system restore.

Sounds like your hard drive is failing.
Try booting while holding down the shift key that will put you into safe mode and run some diagnostics at the same time.
If you have the discs that came with the laptop try booting from them while holding down the D key. That will bring up AHT a built in test for your mac. You can use it to test and repair some of the disc problems you are describing.

Issues loading software on powerbook G4


Try using the finder to locate your software packages and simply relocate their icons to the applications folder by opening several new finder windows and dragging and dropping them there.

If you, in fact, went through each application's setup, then the icons were created somewhere on the disk, perhaps on the desktop or even above the desktop, external to the particular user.

Try locating each package back to the applications folder.

There are a couple of different ways you may have lost your icons. They could have disappeared when you installed a certain program or even when you upgraded to a new operating system. Either way, you need them, so let's find them again! To enable those icons and more, right click on your desktop and choose Properties. Click on the Desktop tab and hit the Customize Desktop button. Next, under the General tab, check off any of the icons you want to appear on your desktop.

The most likely cause is a bad hard drive or a corrupted file. Start up the computer in safe mode. (Hold down the shift key while starting) that will force the macbook to run extended tests on the startup drive. If it finds any errors it may be able to correct them. If that fails use the startup disk that came with your laptop and start from it (hold down the C key during start up) that will allow you to use disc utility to try repairing your hard drive.
If the macbook fails to boot to the DVD or into safe mode. Try reseating the RAM chips. Hope some of that helps.

No icons..nothing!?!


Try resetting the desktop. Right click on the desktop, click properties, then open the desktop tab. Change the desktop picture and see if that works. If it doesn't try a system restore. You will be able to access the start menu by pressing the windows key. If these don't work you'll need to run a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc.

Desktop problem


Sounds like there is a program trying to run that is locking up your computer. what was the last program you installed?

If you know, when booting up, press F8 and go into safe mode. Uninstall that program. then reboot normally.

If this does not work, you may have a virus.

Lets start with this first though.

Software loading, running and not found


What kind of software is it? If you go to the Task Manager (Control + ALT + DEL) you should see the process running there. End task and then try to run it again.
