Recover desktop items on HP computer

I turned off my HP laptop last night and turned it back on this morning. When I did this I got an error box saying there was a security/privacy issue and it only shows a default desktop. I can't find any of our old icons and information. The user account has our name but none of our files. Any help would be appreciated.

Eep!

Firstly, check C:\documents and settings\
All your user accounts should be there. Back those files up somewhere before you lose them for good.

After that, if you're on XP... go start, run, type "cmd" and enter.
In the DOS box, type "gpupdate /force".

That last command will forcibly update the local group policies... which should restore everything to normal.

If that doesn't work, right-click my computer, properties, advanced, user profiles, settings. There might be some unknown account types there. Try copying them to a new profile.

Lastly... if all else fails, you may have a corrupt registry. Go start-programs-accessories-system tools-system restore.
Launch that, and pick a date before the issue began, and let it roll back to that time.

In any case, your documents and shortcuts can't be wiped from a registry problem or group policy corruption. =-]

I turned off my computer last night and now it won't turn on.


try taking the battery out and turn it on, if it comes on you have a bad battery, If this does not result, take the battery out and un-plug the power supply from the laptop and from the wall. wait 30 seconds and plug the power suppy back in and give it a try.

System crash--won't boot up


The intermittent beeping is the error code. It is important that you notice how many beeps your computer makes.
Then, you can go to the following link (from HP) http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bph07107&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=71010&lang=en
and check what is wrong with your computer.

Anyway, you can always recover the information on your computer, but will have to take the hard disk out of the computer and plug it onto another as a secondary hard disk.

ERROR MESSAGE READS...


Try starting it in safe mode. (Hold F8 after power on). If you get your icon screen go to start, run and type in msconfig. Click startup and disable all the items. Hit OK and try a normal restart. This error can be caused by a bad program starting up.
