canstone is on a distinguished road

I just bought my first Mac a year ago, to use for music recording. Lately, if I need to restart it, it will make the utopian "hello" sound, then just stay on black screen (fan comes on for a second, then goes off). I have used the force start and it usually works. Or if I leave it alone for a while, it will start up OK.
Yesterday, I upgraded to 10.4.11 and also upgraded iTunes and Quicktime. When I went to restart, it wouldn't, so I force started a few times... no luck. I left it overnight, and it DID start in the morning, first try... BUT my desktop is blank (no icons) and it's back to the default wallpaper. My applications are still in the finder, but the docs I saved to the desktop are all gone.

What to do, friendly Mac friends? Please help!
