SOURCE: task-bar & start-menu disappeared

Just do as I say - it will be ok and sort itself out - the screen will not go blank and the drivers are still installed in Windows and will just be reinstalled, thus associating themselves with the card again. No internet connection is needed and the drivers will be reinstalled automatically without the need for user input.

To gain access to that which is 'off screen' push the mouse against the edge of the screen and it should move the display into view

Once I turn the computer on it only shows a blank screen. I am able to see the mouse arrow move but I am unable to get to my desktop or anything else. What do I do?

If you can see the mouse arrow, the display adapter is working. Try right clicking on the desktop. If you get a popup display, select the VIEW option, and another popup should appear next to it. Look at the bottom of the list and ensure that the "show desktop icons" selection is checked. If not, click on it and see if the icons return.

When I turn on my computer the icons and start programs row at the bottom of my computer do not come up. Just a few icons at the top of the screen. How do I get the start programs and lower icons back on...

Move your pointer to the bottom of the screen until it turns into an arrow. Click and hold left button and drag up. If you want, after the task bar is back up, you can right click on it and select LOCK THE TASKBAR. That way you can't accidentally move it down again.

How do you eject after downloading music. I can't find the underlined up arrow.

On the lower right hand corner of your desktop, you may see a downward pointing green arrow (this is the "Safely Remove Hardware" option). If you do not see it, click on the little blue circle with a left-pointing arrow to uncover any hidden icons - you will probably find it there.
