Okay, last night me and my hubby decided to rearrange the room and I just now hooked up the PC and the monitor light stays orange for about 5 minutes and then my desktop background will show up with 3 icons. There's no task bar and the icons that show up I never had installed before. I have no idea why its doing this when it was working perfectly fine yesterday before we moved the room. I don't know if its the plugs (we've had power outages all day because this is a really old apartment and we don't know what we can have on all together and what we can't) or not. So can anyone help me with this? EDIT: Well I got the mouse to work so I right clicked and went to properties and nothing loaded. I also tried putting in the XP disc and nothing loaded. I created a new folder and went to "open with..." and clicked on the XP disc but still got nothing. I saw all of my files when I went to open with so I know they're all still there. Also, when I turn on the monitor I don't see the XP logo and can't access safety mode or anything, the light just stays orange and then turns green and loads my desktop background along with three icons. EDIT 2: Well its not the monitor, I switched monitors and it still won't work so it must be the hard drive. Anyone have any suggestions on what it could be? The graphics card looked fine to me when I looked at it so I have no idea what it is.
