Question about HP Pavilion ze2000 Notebook

Start, Desktop, Task Manager wont work

I posted on the problem you answered some time ago. I have Windows 2000 server Professional at work, and I have no desktop, start menu and if I try to use the Task manager nothing happens. I can't try most of the solutions I have found because they all require use of the desktop and/or the task manager. Also, I tried starting in safe-mode with Command prompt and nothing came up on the screen such as the command prompt. Help Please?

    Is there any way to restore Windows 2000 to date in the past without the use of the desktop or task manager, such as before the boot sequence during start up? Or is it possible to get into the computers files and remove the latest updates without having a desktop? Would this require the recovery disk.

Cannot access the start menu ,computer can only be used by task manager


In your task manager go to new task button in the applications tab. When you press new task button it will give you a run dialog in their type explorer. This should reopen your task bar and enable you to use the start button again. If this does not work it is time to backup and reinstall windows.

An disk error occurred ctl alt & del to restart


You should be more specific as to when the problem occured as the solution for each instance would be different. However since there is no other information, please proceed with the following generic solution.
if there is a disk error you should either press ESC (to remove the alert window on the screen) or hit CTRL + ALT +DEL.
within windows you will get the option to start Task Manager. Choose Task Manager. Locate Windows Explorer in the list of processes, select it and press End Process.
All your windows along with desktop and system tray will disappear.
Then within task manager Goto File > New Task.
A Run command window will open. type in explorer.exe and press enter. Your windows along with desktop apps will restart and this time there wont be an i/o error.
