If it shows in Taskbar that it found new hardware then it does detect the PC board of the hard drive but the drive's head mechanics or the actual disk inside have been damaged by the fall and therefore it cannot read off the drive which means your drive has now permanent damage.
Therefore it cannot be detected at bootup...
You may try a DATA RETRIEVAL company to see if they can get your information off the fallen drive.

Show task bar on computer

What is the operating system? For Windows 7 and older, move the mouse down to the edge of the screen and see if the task bar slides up. If it does, right-click on it and from the scroll down list, select properties. From the pop up settings box, remove the check mark on the Auto-hide the task bar box.
Now the task bar should be ever present at the bottom of the screen.

My Computer not showing my toshiba canvio hard drive

Have you tried shutting down the computer ... unplugging the hard drive ... re-starting the computer .... and plugging in the hard drive (after the system is all ready for use) ?
It's likely the hard drive was "ejected" ... (after defrag ? or when the system went into standby/hibernation) .... and hence you see the icon in the task bar ... indicating that you can safely unplug the hard drive from the computer.

I forgot how to use this. Once you plug in, what do yo do to save files on computer?

If your computer sees the drive > yes, you can drag and drop etc. to the drive.
Be sure to remove the drive from the computer by safely removing it in Windows using the "Safely Remove Hard ware and Eject Media" in the Windows Task bar.
You could damaged the hard drive if not done this way.

I am trying to download MP3 files from my computer to my new Sony Ericsson W100i Spiro phone, using a USB cable. The instructions (in French) say that I should select 'Stockage de masse' on the phone to...

I don't think "mass storage" is the right option... Best way to transfer mp3s from your pc to a sony ericsson phone is to install their pc suite. Go to their website section where you can chose the correct phone model and then download free the relevant software (pc suite).

My start menu button and task bar is missing what shall i do :(

Don't worry you can solve it very easily.
Please just follow the below steps and you will fix it.

1 . If you are moving your mouse cursor all the way down (or wherever you have placed your task bar by default), but it won't show up, try pressing the Window key, typically found between the CTRL and the Alt keys. You can also press CTRL+Esc and achieve the same result. If your Start menu pops up after performing either action, this is your chance to manually re size your Windows task bar, as you had probably minimized it by accident.

2 . In case the above step does not fix the issue, try launching the Task Manager by pressing CTRL+Alt+DEL. In the window that pops up, go to the File menu, click on New Task, and type "Explorer" or "Explorer.exe", without the quotes. This action will basically restart the main shell that allows you to see your desktop icons, launch the task bar and initiate most of the visualizations you see on your Operating System. If this does not do the job, let's move onto step three.

3 . Try simply restarting the computer, as this may be as well caused by an old, sluggish system begging to be restarted for various reasons.

4 . Now, if none of the above have worked, you may be forced to run an anti virus and spy ware application. It is recommended that you launch these programs from Safe Mode by simply pressing the F8 key while your computer is booting up (right before the Windows logo shows up on the screen). Some viruses and spyware are known to alter your system in strange ways, so cleaning it may be an appropriate solution, as you have nothing to lose by trying.

5 . If all else fails, you may have to resort to repairing Windows through your Windows disc. During this repair, all of your data/documents will be left intact, while Windows attempts to fix any system error or damage found.

Thanks .
