Display Settings - Single Monitor Option Has Disappeared

I have my mum's computer here - a Toshiba Satellite laptop. Her start menu/taskbar has disappeared and reappeared as a split screen. It seems to be a separate screen or window and can only be manipulated horizontally. I have checked display settings and there is no choice available but multiple monitors. I have no idea what happened and nothing I have tried has worked. Help ... please! Thank you. Nancy

Volume Icon has disappeared.


First, right click on the taskbar and select Properties from the right click menu.

Alternatively, you can go to the Control Panel and type the word 'taskbar' in the search box from the upper-right side. Once the search results are loaded, click on the link that says 'Customize icons on the taskbar'.

The Taskbar and Start Menu Properties window will show up on your screen. Here, go to the tab called Notification Area. In the System icons section check the Volume box and click on OK.

The Volume Mixer icon will now show up in the notification area of your taskbar

I hope that this information was helpful and thank you for contacting the experts.

Could not get the display on projector with toshiba laptop A70


There should be a display settings section on the graphics settings for the card in the laptop. Sometinmes these are from Intel, Nvidia, ATI, etc.. In this section you should see display1, display 2. Right click on the one opposite your LCD display and you should get an 'activate' option or use this monitor. If you are not getting these options please post your Video Adapter information.

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.

My screen is bigger than the monitor for my toshiba satellite laptop.


Hi.
What is happening is the settings that you have set on your laptop are too high for the monitor to recognize.
You will need to reduce the resolution settings in you display properties which can be found by going to start-settings-control panel- display- and in the display area choose settings.
Some video cards will let you adjust each item. Some you have to use the same resolution on both screens.
Shout if you need furthur input !
