Having problems with your Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook ?

I don't see icons on the desk top and the task bar at the bottom does not show up

\015 I am trying to fix my freinds computer Acer 3000. The computer turns on and makes it to the wall paper and that is it. I don't see icons on the desk top and the task bar at the bottom does not show up. Funny thing is the screen saver does work. Also it's showing that the user is already logged on when I press the windows and L keys which are the only thing I can do to shutdown. None of the other keys work. Please help.\015\012Star\015
