Here's one possible solution.

To determine whether the auto-hide option is not enabled for Taskbar and Start Menu Properties, follow these steps:

  1. Press CRTL+ESC.
  2. If the Start menu appears, right-click the Start menu, and then click Properties.
  3. Click the Taskbar tab, clear the Auto-hide the taskbar check box, and then click OK.

Hi richgato,

when you said that the desktop is not being displayed, does this mean all of the actual desktop screen? or just the background or when you minimize all the windows you see nothing?

fo us to help you further, we may need these information from you or a description of how your screen looks like.

looking forward to your reply.

regards,

voodoo

Gateway pentium 3 boots to where it displays cdrom drive infromation then it pops up a blue window asking for a pass code. What is the code it requests or cause of problem?


Sounds like a bios password thats only thing it can be pre-boot screen. If its a desktop you can dislodge the bios battery for about 3 minutes if its a laptop your kinda screwed. If you can prove ownership of the laptop then maybe Gateway has a master password work around.

Gateway laptop wont display my desktop -screen is black


Does backlight stay on, or does it look like the screen is turned off? If it looks like it is turned off, can you look extremely closely and see your desktop if held in good light?
