Blank screen. Everytime I turn on my Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop, the display Icons and bottom toolbar would disappear leaving me a blank desktop. I used the window task manager to open my programs. Can you please advice what to do to get my icons and bottom toolbar back on the desktop. Thank you.

    Everytime i turn on my Dell inspiron 6000 laptop, my Taskbar, where start is supposed to be at the bottom has disappeared. I thought at first that i had pulled it down under the screen, but then that didnt work when i tryed to move it back up. My laptop is fairly new though, so i would of thought that this wouldnt occur.

TweakUI won't fix it. The "bottom toolbar" (it's called the taskbar) and your desktop icons are all run by a program in windows called Explorer. Explorer has likely failed to start up correctly, and this is usually because of spyware. You'll want to try rebooting the system into safe mode (press f8 during system startup, right before the windows logo screen), and select "Safe Mode with Networking" so we can get online, hopefully. Now download a tool like Spybot Search and Destroy if you don't have it. It's anti-spyware, and usually fixes most of these types of problems. Make sure to update it, and then do a scan.

The other way to solving this problem is going into safe mode, then hit the cltr+Alt+del, then the task manger opens, the type the mscnfig, then the dailogue box opens, then you click on the tab were it says system restoration. click there and then take it to previous date. after the system restarts, please run the anti-virus on the system.

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.

What solution because dell notebook blank display after reboot

If the Dell logo comes up on the screen and goes to blank display, the problem is in the hard drive or windows files have been corrupted, remove the hardware and reseat it back in place, sometimes this will restart it, if no change! reload your operational system with the disc if available to factory setting. If none of these work the hard drive needs to be assessed for replacement.

My Inspiron 6000 screen is blank. I can get an image on a monitor through the serial port, but when on its own, the notebook screen is black. I have noticed that there is a brief flash when booting up, but...

Hi ,

1. You can check the display on external monitor>If the display is blank on external monitor also, its pretty clear that there is an issue with system board

2. If the Exernal monitor comes up fine, it will be an issue with the display of the laptop, you can cross check the issue by booting the computer to BIOS, IF you get same response on BIOS as well. Its an issue with the Display itself you can replace the display panel.

Hopefully, its covered under warranty ;)

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.
