I'll give you a little back story before outlining the problem.
I've always had issues with this laptop. Mainly just annoyances but minor issues. For example, if I ever but the machine to sleep, the wireless would not wake up by itself. I had to run the vista nettwork troubleshoot and manually have to turn it on . So the wireless thing happened to me today and I asked myself if a patch would fix it. So i went to update the unit and it said there were 13 updates... so I figured why not? right?
Anyway after those patches were installed, Vista boots, but when I log in, all i'm presented with is a black screen and a pointer. No start menu, no background, nothing other than those two things. Now i can still run applications using the ctrl+shift+esc keyboard shortcut key to bring up the task manager and start a new task from there but I don't get any wireless now or bluetooth
Does anyone have any ideas? I'd rather not re-image the thing if possible.

Heh. Some of us X200T folks are having the same problem.
Are you using Vista 64 like us?
It didn't occur to me to launch apps through the task manager although I guess that's not exactly a great way to go through life.
