Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A105-S2051 Notebook ?

When I turn on my PC, all that appears is the ''Satellite'' logo and my mouse arrow. I brought up the task bar by pressing cntl-alt-delete and found only one task that would open....''Pinball''. All others couldn't be found. I've tried ctrl-Esc but it wouldn't work either.


Answers :

If you can bring up the task manager , go under the processes tab and see if Explorer is running.
If it isnt go to File > New task and type in explorer and hit ok.
