I have a lap top with windows me, while restarting the power cable was disconnected. When I restarted the computer a small gray screen appeared, where normally my regular desktop would be, with about half of my icons. My mouse also would not work. It looked very similar to safe mode except only half my icons were present and it didn't say safe mode on the screen.
I went to system restore and tried multiple dates and this did not solve the problem. I tried this both in this new strange mode and in safe mode.
In safe mode I ran msconfig and selected only the imparitive programs. This again did not solve the problem.
I am at a complete lose as to what to do next. Please help.
