I was trying to setup a laptop to HDTV through mini hdmi/hdmi cable, i was having problems setting the screen up on the HDTV, in several occasion my computer would freeze (no mouse pointer), so i restarted a couple times, now, everytime i restart my computer, i get stuck with a screen that only contains my desktop background. (no mouse pointer, no task bar, no files/programs that are supposed to be on the desktop) I am having a presentation tomorrow, please please please help me out to save me!!

btw, i tried to start in safe mode, everything seems fine, but when i start it normally, the problem occurs again :( .

Thanks for helping again!!

Hi :) 

Start it...then press F8 and choose VGA mode....then change your graphics settings back to normal...

All the best Brett :)
