No Icons on Desktop !! HELP !
Posted: 01-22-2009, 02:19 PM
My sister's computer has a very weird problem.

The PC boots up okay, until it displays the wallpaper, and then it
stops.

No icon, no taskbar, no nothing.

I can move the mouse pointer, but clicking on the mouth, whether it be
the right button or left button, nothing.

Hitting the "ctrl-alt-del" keys also nothing. No task manager,
nothing.

The PC just stuck on the wallpaper. NOTHING.

So I reboot the PC, and go into the safe mode.

It boots until the agp400.sys (or something about AGP) and then it
stops.

Nothing, absolutely NOTHING.

I don't know what is wrong.

Is it the HD? Or is it the software?

Is there a possibility that a virus or malware cause this problem??

Please help.

The PC specs as follow:

P4 machine. 2.6GHz. 2GB of RAM and 160 GB of HD.

Thanks advance for your help !!

Your posting techniques are going to get the only responses.

Clean you video connections or buy a new vid card.

Instead of Safe Mode try the Last Known Good Configuration (on the same menu).

Did your sister just installed a new graphic card/video card? I suggest you
to unplug it and use the integrated one and try to boot your machine or try
the last known good configuration or even perform a system restore. You can
check with the OEM of your devices to see whether everything should be
working together and whether all the drivers are right.
