I've got the strangest problem, it's probably something simple: The system boots, shows the apple and volume, brightness controls and mouse pointer, but nothing else. Not a menu, no finder, nada, Reboots bring me back to the same point, can't bring up a repair console, I inserted an OSX DVD, which I can hear running but it still doesn't show anything on the screen. It's not dark, it just looks like the desktop has been wiped clean. I can move the mouse and get sounds from it (using the vol button) but I get nowhere. Any ideas?

If you would provide the readers of your post with specs about your computer, they may be able to assist you better. Year, model Mac, version of OS X, memory, etc.
