So my computer isn't the nicest piece of equipment so I've expected some problems. Of which I've gotten plenty. But this one is BY FAR the most frustrating and not to mention confusing.

My computer's charger plug in the back is broken so it's been rigged together with tape. Sadly, unless my computer is plugged into the wall, it will NOT hold a charge. I've come to live with this and it's fine. When the charger rig in the back is bumped, it also turns off, which is frustrating.. But okay. Well today it was bumped and turned off. I went to turn it back on and it took FOREVER to reboot. But now when the comuter FINALLY turns on, IT'S NOT MY REGULAR COMPUTER! All my icons of my stuff is missing and it's a completely different background and the "Start" bar is blue along with all the windows' bars.

PLEASE HELP! I have no idea what's going on and I sincerely hope everything (my files, music, games, settings) aren't completely gone for good.

So if someone could please help me and tell me what's going on and what I need to do to fix it, it would be SO GREATLY APPRECIATED.

Thank you so much.
