It is possible that the task bar is in 'auto hide' First thing you should do is rest your cursor on all four sides of your desktop for a few seconds and see if it appears. If it doesn't than move your cursor to the bottom of the screen and right click and choose 'properties' and uncheck the 'auto ide box'. I am not positive that this well solve your problem, but its the best I can do at the moment. I well research it and find more info, than I well post it for you.

    I found the answer I think....


    Go 'My computer' on the desktop.
    'Go' - 'Applications' from the menubar and the menu is displayed.
    'Pesonal settings' re-allows the configuration of the taskbar, than click 'apply' and it well return.




    Let me know how you made out, and please rate my answer.


    Good luck.

My icon for the battery power monitor has dissapeared from my taskbar can you help me get it back please


Do you have Windows 7? If so, you can right-click on the bottom right corner of your desktop (try right-clicking the time/date), where the icons for volume control, wireless, battery, etc... should be and select Properties. You should then see a screen where you can turn on/off the icons/notifications for battery power (sometimes my volume control disappears and i have to do this.
Otherwise you can go here, Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Notification Area Icons and you should find the same thing. Then just turn on your battery power icon/notifications.
Hope this helps.

My HP ZD7260US 17" laptop has three problems.


It sounds like the volume button on the keyboard may be stuck in the volume down position. Your "c" key may have similar issues. You may want to have a tech check the keyboard connections for those buttons and clean beneath them...
