Unable to load programs

My Acer Aspire laptop refuses to load any programs after logging on. A diagnostics test shows the message 'media cable disabled'. A startup test has not found any faults. Can anybody help before I pay out for a costly repair?

after you log in does it go to your desktop?

Yes, but nothing loads after this.

Could be a number of things apparently. Lots of reasons and solutions in the link.
