I turned my lap top on yesterday morning and I left my ipad and ipod plugged into it without realizing it and it screwed up my start up. This has happened many times before so I restarted my lap top. When I came back and signed in it went to a black screen and would not load up the desktop. I ctrl-alt-del and got the task manager up and only about 5 processes had started. I went into safe mode and the desktop came up fine. I am running a system restore while I am at work, but are there any other ideas as to what I can do if that doesn't work?

It runs vista windows home basic.

Get a working OS, either XP or 7, that's a first step.

It shouldn't fuck up your startup having any Apple crap connected (mine doesn't care), so you might have a messed up install, or possibly a flakey HD MBR.

If you know how to run CHKDSK, it'd probably be a good idea to see what, if anything, that comes up with.

Short term, that restore should get you going again for now, but I'd wanna run diagnostics on that HD.

Had that problem with my XP machine but it never did anything permanent once I unplugged the devices and restarted.

You could try CC Cleaner, although that only gets rid of extraneous registry entries.

There's not a heckuva lot you can do to repair a registry.

Ya, I read up on it today, still at work, and I saw people had similar situations to what I had. They had links to some fixes so I'm gonna try those.

Ok, so when I have the black screen I can do ctrl-alt-del and get to the task manager. I realized that explorer.exe wasn't running. A lot of other processes that usually run aren't either. Any idea why not?

O ya, if I got into the task manager and then go to applications, new tasks and type in explorer.exe it brings up my background. WTF?

the best you can do is a reinstall of windows
