When I turn on my laptop it goes all the way to my desktop but then nothing happens. I have to go to task manager to turn it off because I can't get to start to log off or shut down. I need to do school work but can't get my computer to work. i figured I could go to task manager and do something but that didn't work and it's not the battery otherwise it wouldn't come on.

This maybe due to the "explorer.exe" process not running.
Try pressing ctrl-alt-del, to start the task manager then select the "processes" tab and click on "file".
In the "create new task" window type "explorer.exe" (without quotes) & click OK.
Your desktop icons should magically appear!

Hi, try to use Ctrl Alt and delete keys at the same time . If you get the task manager simply go to new task and type explorer.exe and hit enter. that will restore your desktop. go here http://www.pcworld.com/article/183440/windows_black_screen_death.html or http://pcsupport.about.com/od/fixtheproblem/f/start-windows-last-known-good-configuration.htm
The laptop seems to have a problem with explorer not loading properly (this is the program which loads up the taskbar, icons etc)
Hold down Ctrl, Alt and press the delete key. Dependent on the operating system it will either go to list or load up Task Manager, ether way you need Task Manager.
When Task Manager loads up in the top left corner of the window you will see File, click on that and select New Task (run), click on that and in the box type explorer and click OK, The desktop should now load up.
After that make sure you perform a system restore by clicking on the start menu, accessories, system tools, system restore and take the laptop back to a time before this happened.
Press and holt Control+Alt keys and then press Del key one... Then you need to select the option task manager.. In task manager select file at the top... Under file select new task and type explore.exe in lower case and push enter.. You must be able to see the start menu and the desktop icon... If you still dont find the desktop icon - right on desktop and select show all desktop icons... The problem should be fixed...
There may be nothing running in task manager that you can see but there is still something running,My advice is to take it to your local Geek Squad or preferred computer tech you most likely have a virus that is slowing down your computer process.
first make sure your blurtooth is on. then go to all programs if the desktop shortcut dosnt work. if still nothing is happeneing open up teh task manager. (ctrl, alt, delete) then open up the task manager. see if theres anything in the porcess tab that says blutooth abreviated. or the name of the program that your are using blutooth for. end the process and try to run it again.
Press the [F5] key to "refresh" the desktop.
Your user profile may have changed. Are you using the same user name as before?
1. In the Task Manager, find "explorer.exe" in the [Processes] tab.
2. [End Process]
3. Yes, [End process]
4. Now, select [New] [New Task (Run)]
5 Type: explorer.exe
6. Your familiar desktop Icons will appear
7. You may not have to do this again, but remember the steps.
By going into the Task manager, type windows explorer in the new tab. That should bring up your desktop icons, The reason for this could be that you have a lot of applications trying to load all at once and it can cause some lock up in the system.
A full system repair should be your last choice.
