Hello peoples, I have a slight problem. I was building for another machine and when it told me to remove the USB memory stick, I did that as I've done countless times before.

HOWEVER.. The screen went blank and I couldn't get any video, so I stopped the machine and let it reboot. When it came up I have a screen with only a couple of icons, but when I move the cursor up to the upper left to get my programs, nothing happens.

Does anyone know what happened or better how to fix it? I drug myself through a number of directories until I found iceweasel, so I could ask for help. I have never used the restore in the GRUB program and I"m hoping some one will know what happened to my machine.

Please help asap as I'm kind of hosed at this point.

I'm up on Debian 7.0.0

Thanks, I'll be waiting!
