Black screen after start up

every thing is as per normal untill after i type in my password and it finish loading. After it loads , it does'nt show me any application or my background. It only shows me a black screen and my mouse arrow. I can still see my mouse arrow moving and go to task manager . When i press and hold my power button and restart my laptop, the same thing happens. I can only use safe modes. Can someone help me? By the way im not a computer pro so simpler answers will help Smiley Very Happy

Try boot in Safe Mode, and run System Restore
to roll back to an earlier date.
Click Start Orb, start typing Restore, and watch for
System Restore to show at the top.
Click on it, and restore to a earlier date.

 

Post back if it works or not.

Re: Black screen after start up

I've just got my lappy recovered, So want to share as I was surfing the solution few minues back...

 

I've taken the battery out of it and again plugged in. And it is now back into form...

 

Best wishes to all who will knock again this page after facing such problem.
