Windows 7: Grey screen on start up

13 Oct 2010   #1

Windows Home Premium 32bit I think
Grey screen on start up


When I start my windows 7 computor it goes perfect until I've logged in.
When I'm supposed to see the desktop I can only see my mouse-pointer on a grey background..... Not even CTRL+ALT+DEL works......

Any suggestions?

The windows came with the computor so it should work.... and have worked.

It is a windows 7 home premium 32bit.
