Hello Sam, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if doing a System Restore using a restore point dated before you had this problem may be able to fix it for you.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Disconnect your other monitor connection. Windows thinks you've got two and it's showing the desktop on the other one. Or, right click the desktop and select Screen Resolution. It might not show up on the right screen either so hold the Windows key and press the right arrow key a few times. If that doesn't work try it with left, up and down. Once you see the window you can select which monitor is primary with the checkbox underneath the Orientation drop-down list.

If that doesn't work, make sure explorer.exe is running in your tasks. If not, then File > Run... and put in explorer.exe

If for any reason your icons don't show up (happens to me 24/7), then right click on the desktop and go to Arrange > Show desktop icons

How's he gonna get to all that without a desktop?

Seriously though, you could ctrl+alt+del and see if you get a screen. If so you could start task manager from there and do what *kenny is saying. Me, I think you've got Explorer running. On the other screen...

I have the same behaviour on W7 RC X64. I found out, that this happens only if i add a custom buttonbar (if you rightclick the taskbar and there the uppermost entry( Symbolleiste in german)). I added a new buttonbar as an replacement to the missing launchbar in vista. But this always led to a hanging desktop after reboot/login. If i remove this buttonbar, the problem goes away. This can be reproduced on my system with a Test-Account. TalkingHead
