When I start up my computer, I goes to the "choose your account", login screen, like normal. But when I login, all I get is a desktop with the background pic on it, but no icons, and just a little blank window in the top-left corner that says "personalized settings". That is all that shows up. I still can use my mouse, but I cannot click on the "start" button, or even bring it up using the windows key (but I am not even sure it is there, because I have the dock on auto-hide). also, the hard drive light doesn't flash at all, so the hard drive isn't running.
What do I do?
I have the Alienware re-boot disk that returns it to as it was fresh out of the box. Could I use this, or is my computer fried?
