Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

The screen seems to be too wide, the task bar is off the screen and so are all the icons. I think I did something when I was messing with the resolution and I cannot get it back to normal. All of the windows open up but are off to the right where I cannot see them.

Yes you did something - you set the resolution so low that everything is too large to fit on the screen. If you are unable to bring up and view the setting to change it back the simplest thing may be to boot into safe mode. Although changing the settings is not an option you can uninstall the Display Drivers from Device Manager and reboot. This should set the resolution back automatically to a usable value.

Why do my icons don't appear in the lower right, I would like to reinstall day date calander and time


It is not very obvious. The bar at the bottom of screen is your 'Task Bar'
1. Find an empty part of your Task Bar and Right Click on it
2. Select Properties
3. Near the bottom of the menu in 'Notification Area' tick Box 'Show clock'
While you are there, it shows all icons that are on your Task Bar. If empty find the 'Hide Tasks' box and untick
4. Tick Apply and OK

I HAVE A WINDOW XP HOME EDITION AND WHEN I START MY COMPUTER THE ONLY THING THAT COMES UP IS THE BACKGROUND. THERE ARE NO ICONS OR A BAR AT BOTTOM OF SCREEN.


the icons and the bar(task bar) at the bottom of the screen are enabled by the explorer.exe file

it starts automatically but in your case it is not starting

to start it when your computer starts and comes at the desktop, press alt+ctrl+delete button at the same time to bring up the task manager

when you do this a task manager shows up in a window

in task manager window click on file, it will be located on the top left portion on task manager

now click on "new task(run)"

this opens another window, in that window type
"explorer"
without the quotes "" and press enter
this will bring you icons and task bar at the bottom of the screen

Icons and start upmenu bar absent


explorer.exe is what displays the icons and the startup bar on the screen so try opening explorer.exe from the task manager. Or if it is already running close it and then reopen it.

Task-bar & start-menu disappeared


Sounds as if the video card is going down. This is a common problem on these laptops. Have you checked Device Manager to see if the drivers are installed. Hit Win key and pause then select hardware and Device Manager. If nothing seems out of place there then I would most certainly suspect the video card. This is part of the motherboard and not replaceable.

As another check try connecting the laptop to an external monitor via the VGA connector at the back. The resolution problem should be resolved then.

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.
