you probably moved it by accident
try moving your mouse cursor near the bottom or sides of the screen, when the cursor almost dissapears, it should change from a single white arrow to a double (up/down) arrow.
click left and drag up, normally you bar should reappear.
Lol. This happened to me about 6 months ago, Toshiba has a program called 'TouchPad' Utillity. Which basically enables you to turn ON/OFF the mouse pad, It's shipped with the operating system, Unfortunately if you do turn it off, The mouse pad won't respond and there is no way you can turn it back on, It took my 12 hours to figure this out,It was frustrating, You will need a mouse, Preferably a USB one, plug this in and go to your icon bar in the bottom right hand corner of your desktop screen and there should be an icon saying 'TOUCHPAD', Right click it, Go up and turn it back on, Then you will be back in business:)
Check to see if AUTO HIDE is not enabled in taskbar settings, move your mouse cursor to the bottom of the screen if enabled the Startmenu and taskbar will re-appear, if not then it was possibly resized accidently, move your cursor to the bottom again if it turns into two arrows pointing up and down then click and hold and drag up and it should be revealed again.
You said "I have a dell computer and when I turn it on to the desktop the arrow wont move to go any further its a desktop with a IBM keyboard"
Make sure that the mouse is plugged into the the correct port. If the mouse you are using is a USBmouse then try other USB ports. If it is another type of mouse that uses a different plug, then try all the ports on your computer that it fits into until it works. It sounds unprofessional but it should work.
If none of this works then put in the CD that should of come with you mouse and install the drivers for your mouse. If you cant find the disc for your mouse then go online to the manufacturers website and you should be able to download the drivers there.
If i was helpful please rate me positively
I used to get this problem. It is VERY annoying as you must know. try pushing the windows icon button in the top right corner of your keyboard(thats where it is on my keyboard)then use your arrow keys to scroll up to control panel, select mouse by using arrow keys and then use the tab and arrow keys to open the mouse keypad pagetab and push enable and enter key to turn it on.
IF WHEN YOU DO THAT AND your in the touchpad properties but there is no 'enable' and it says no hardware detected, then go into the same mouse window from the control panel and go to the hardware tab and either try to update driver or use the trouble shoot button.
