Having problems with your Acer Aspire One PC Notebook ?

Linux Desktop blank

\015 I have an Acer Aspire One with Linpus Linux Lite OS.On startup my desktop goes completely blank except for the toolbar at the bottom (the 'Search' bar will sometimes come up but generally doesn't). alt+f2 doesn't work and ctrl+alt+del doesn't work either. I tried to load in safe mode using f5 at the startup which I either didn't do right or doesn't work. I can't think of any reason why this has happened. I was using it fine, turned it off and back on an hr or two later and it was faulty. any help would be amazing.thank you.\015
