Question about Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook

1 Answer

Blank screen Everytime I turn on my laptop, my icons and the bottom toolbar would disappear after a few seconds. That leaves me a blank screen on my laptop. I could still use my laptop by opening programs thru the window task manager. Can anyone please advice what is happening on my laptop. Thank you.

How did I accidentally remove the e for enternet symbol on the bottom of the screen and how do I get it back?

Put a shortcut for Internet Explorer on the desktop and then drag it down to the toolbar at the bottom. It will then restore it. If you have put too many icons on the toolbar it may disappear as it cannot be displayed. You then need to unlock the toolbar to see all the icons.

Blank screen upon startup

Try taking out the hard disk, plug in power and see if you have a display on your screen or external monitor. if same thing happen, try taking out the memory card. If you hear a beep sound it's a faulty mem. card, if no beep sound appears I suspected it's a motherboard faulty.

Taskbar and start menu disappear

Move the mouse to the bottom of the screen to make the taskbar reappear. If you want this to display at all times, right-click on any blank area of the taskbar and select Properties. Clear the checkbox next to Auto-hide the taskbar.

The toolbar has disappeared

Ok, on windows desktop screen right click your mouse, select personalize, click on TASK BAR AND START MENU, pop up will show select TOOLBARs, then check Quicklaunch.

If icon is missing just create short cut to your desktop, then click and drag, then delete shortcut in desktop screen.

This is for vista.

As for XP it should be properties for personalize, then search for the link.
