Hello, everyone! This is my first post. It appears that my issue was posted before, but nothing suggested has worked. PLEASE Help!!! My other computer is a Dell Lattitude laptop with 1.0 GHz running XP, and it will not properly boot. All it will do after POST and the "Starting Windows" spash screen is to load the cursor onto a blank screen. There is no taskbar, icons, or anything. I can move the cursor, but nothing happens. The menu does not appear when I right-click, and I can not drag to form the outline of a square.
Toggling between video output did not work. I also plugged in a monitor, but I got the same thing when broadcasting to that screen.
This started after I attempted to update my Nvida drivers. I can't even load Safe Mode, and the CD does not loaad, because I can't see the screen. Is there anything I can do to access my laptop? Please help! This stumped the DELL Support peole.

That's not a good sign - that can be indicative of a number of different problems which may make this more difficult to …
