I still can work on my laptop (Toshiba Satellite) because I had a window open, but the background screen is black. There is no 'Start' button, no desktop and the 'right click' does nothing. Totally emptiness, but I still see the pointer on the black screen.

If this open window is closed, I won't be able to open anything or work on the computer.

Anyone there with a solution?

Sounds like Explorer crashed. To restart it, press CTRL-SHIFT-ESC to bring up the Task Manager then

File -> New Task (Run...)

Enter Explorer for the task name and click OK. It should restart your desktop.

Maybe there is something wrong with your display or LCD inverter? Maybe you need a replacement? Can you take a pic so I can see what your screen looks like?
