The issue you are experiencing may happen if the Display Drivers of the Notebook are corrupted.
I recommend you to try downloading the latest Display Drivers for your Notebook installed with AMD Processor which are available through the link bbelow :
NVidia VGA Drivers for Windows Vista :
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp35501-36000/sp35686.exe


NVidia VGA Drivers for Windows XP :

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp33501-34000/sp33537.exe


Best way is to copy the entire link and paste it in the address bar of a new Internet Explorer window and press Enter to start download.
A window will appear with options like Save, Run and Cancel.
Click on Save and select a common location like the Desktop or My Documents.
Now, once the file is saved, double click on the file to start the installation of the drivers.
This should solve the issue.

Two things - Does the normal screen look O.K. ? is your screen set for 1024 x 600 (right click desktop, Properties - Settings, (normally this sets itself correctly) drag the slider till it is 1024 x 600)
If the above is set correctly - when on the internet Press Ctrl AND - (minus) to shrink the screen if still too big, repeat. Note the text also gets smaller!

Hello.

You should be able to toggle through 3 modes (laptop only, screen only, and both laptop and screen) by selecting the Fn key plus F8 or Fn key plus F4, depending on your system (Look on your keyboard to see which key has CRT/LCD or icon).

Hope this helps.

This is for Windows XP

Change the DPI setting to Normal size (96 DPI). If you have the value set on anything else, text on the HUD-1 will look jumbled on the screen.
Click OK and your computer will ask you to reboot your computer. Click Yes.

My taskbar does not appear when I am viewing web pages


It sounds like you have your task bar set to auto hide. I'm not too familiar with this brand of laptop but if you are using windows you should be able to follow these instructions to fix this. If you know how to get to the control panel (start menu) and click on appearance and themes there should be a task bar and start menu icon there. Click on that icon and select how you want your task bar to be displayed.
