It sounds like explorer.exe is not running. When you start up the laptop, do you see the Windows XP splash screen, where the bar goes across, and then it just goes to your desktop, but you don't see icons or the taskbar? If so, then that is the issue. Why that's happening, I'm not sure. How you can start explorer.exe is to ctrl-alt-del to get to the task manager, then go to File>New Task (Run...), then click Browse..., then browse to C:\WINDOWS\ and select explorer.exe and click Open. Then click OK, and explorer.exe (this is called the shell) will start. If this helps you and everything is back to normal, great, but if not, please add more information!

sounds as if your BIOS and/or Motherboard' shot. . . .
Try formatting your drive first. . .Do you have a pc or laptop? CD not working? use an external zip drive . . . Good Luck
