This happens because you have set your Taskbar to Autohide mode.

Do the following steps:

  1. Move the mouse to the bottom of screen and let the task bar come up
  2. Right click on task bar
  3. Click on properties
  4. On the Task bar Tab Unchek Auto-hide the task bar

Thats it

New dell omniflex 780 wont load windows xp


Must be old if it is running Win XP! No support any longer including antivirus and malware

Try tapping F8 as soon as you power it on. See if you can boot to Safe Mode. If not, Put the original installation disc in and get into the BIOS, normally by clicking Delete or Esc., Boot to the Disc and reinstall over the top of itself.

Invest in a new shiny faster one with Windows 10.

Reinstalled Windows XP on an old computer (DELL Dimension 2400) and the monitor won't display above basic resolution. Downloaded and reinstalled the monitor driver and still no good. Opened up START


According to the Dell Support web site the Dell Dimension 2400 has a built in Intel 3D extreme graphics adapter, assuming you are using this and not a PCI graphics card.

Go to the Intel Download Centre and run their Intel Driver Update Utility which will automatically scan your system for updated drivers for any installed or integrated Intel devices.

If the Intel Utility identifies an updated driver for your graphics adapter then download and install that which should enable you to configure a higher resolution for your display.

I have a desktop PC with HP v72 monitor and a GeForce FX 5200 video card installed. I uninstalled Windows XP and installed Ubuntu Server 11.04. The problem is that after the initial boot screen my monitor...


why run server, , sure you actually want a server.. sure.
Linux, run the newest Ubuntu on new pc
or older on older pc, ive no idea at all what PC you have.
v72 old CRT , glass tube monitor a RELIC in today world.
why post OS questions lacking what HP computer you have of 1000s.
XP gone great idea, for sure....
OK F8 is Microsoft , for get them it not MS now, not at ALL.
in the Linux world its failing to find the correct minimum or
best resolution to match your old monitor
the monitor is year 2000.
the best resolution is 1024 x 768

you are using new linux, and it does not use that old old CRT
weak as a cat resolution,
you can use and older linux, or newer monitor
or change the resolution
using
if seen and done this 100s of time, endless,
btw your OLD CRT monitor does not use proper PnP plug and play
data comms.. its too old, why mess with CRTs in 2017?
walmart sells a $45 LCD , use that? and avoid darkages resolutions.


the way to do this is to run in command line mode
and change the config file, called, xorg.conf

https://techblissonline.com/ubuntu-804-set-default-resolution-1024-768-virtual-pc-2007/


there are other ways,
recompile the kernal to default to this reso? relic
or there is hot key at boot, read the manual on ubuntu
and change to lowest poor resolution
then run setups with a working desktop.

ask on a Ubuntu forum, it can vary by year, OS made and version
and what what desktop running of the many.

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config/Resolution#Resetting_an_out-of-range_resolution



keep in mind
your CRT is not supported now.
you must force it.

one more for V12, dropped the startup manager, wow....
best is to ask only for your version and choices at install time.
grub , KDE? what?

I am trying to re install windows xp on an old PC so i can securely wipe it clean and give it to the local junior school, unfortunately i have got to the screen requiring the product key number and I cant...


If the computer originally came with Windows XP pre-installed, there should be a decal on the side-panel of the tower, or maybe the back-panel, stating the 25-character product-key. Is there?

Sometimes, the manufacturer customized the Windows XP product, so that their version could be installed _without_ asking for a product-key -- the modified software will _only_ install on hardware made by the manufacturer. Contact the manufacturer, and order a set of "System Restore" CDs; probably about $20, plus $20 for overnight-courier.

Before (unfortunately!) you started the re-install process, you could have extracted the product-key from the installed copy of Windows, using the free 'PRODUKEY' software.

Microsoft has a program whereby they will give a license to install Windows to any computer donated to a school. Contact Microsoft, or search their web-site for details.
