Hello experts, I have a computer that I am repairing. The initial issue was there was no desktop, task bar or system tray.
I could not start explorer but could get to command prompt via ctrl-alt-del, task manager.
I have booted from the OEM CD and repaired windows install. When it finishes it gets stuck on the Windows Startup screen at
I have hard started, installed IE8 and I am still at the same place.
I have done this multiple times and ran chkdsk, also found that the system had a fixed IP address. I had to put a router in from of it and now it can get to the internet.
Not having any luck and I don't want to wipe the system. any recommendations?
Oh, when I try to run explorer.exe it never comes up..
