Icons and desktop not displaying

My IBM ThinkPad T22 will not display the desktop. Its stuck on a wallpaper that was installed. The taskbar pops up for about 1 second then goes away. We have to use the Task Manager to get into programs, internet, etc. Any ideas? Oh.. Windows 2000

This is most likely a system glitch. Try a system restore first, then a system repair with your operating system disc if the restore doesn't do the trick. You should be able to get into the system tools from the task manager to do the restore.

No icons, start menu, taskbar, explorer not working

backup your data and do a repair install - might take a while longer but at least you know it will clear any issues.

there are a number of things you can do to fix it but will most likely take a lot longer

ThinkPad T60 Desktop Not Restored After Hibernation/Standby

there is something that runs most of the interface between the user and the computer it is called explorer.exe to get the task manager open, you can try pressing CTRL+Shift+Delete another alternative is to do an OS reinstallation.

To get explorer.exe

1) press Ctrl+Alt+Delete; in unsuccessful try Ctrl+****+Delete
2) if task manager opens click on 'New Task..." (if task manager does not open, consider reinstalling your OS or simply don't go into standby/hibernate)
3) Once you get the New Task dialog box, type explorer.exe or C:/Windows/explorer.exe

My IBM T23 Laptop screen keeps going off (hibernating or sleeping?)

What operating system you running? I assume XP. If you go to start > settings > control panel > Power options (I think). You can change the options on how long before the screen turns off and stuff in there. For the other problem just right click on your desktop, and click "Properties". Adjust the screen resolution there.
