Lenovo b640 model the tool bar is showing on the top but as is drag it on the bottom it is hide or not showing but it is showing on the right and left of the windows 7

Try right clicking on a part of the task bar and checking that the "Lock Task Bar" is not ticked in the menu that appears, untick it if it is. It shouldn't be as you can drag it to the left or right of the screen. Then click "Properties" and check that the "auto-hide task bar" is not ticked. Again it shouldn't be but untick if it is.
In these circumstances you should be able to drag the task bar to all four sides of the screen and it should remain visible at all times. If it is still not showing at the bottom of your screen, I would suspect that your graphics card is setup to show a larger screen than the actual screen can display, and you need to right click somewhere on the desk top and look at "Screen Resolution" (win7) to see what the settings are and what you can change them to to try and bring the task bar back into view when it is on the bottom.
Do any of your programmes lose their lower parts when viewed full screen?
On today's wide screen profile machines, I often find it better to have the task bar on the side. It takes a little getting used to at first, but after a while I found it more natural than at the bottom.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya

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.

Do you me the task bar at the bottom of your screen? Did you try bringing the mouse pointer to all the edges or sides of the screen it may have gotten moved or hidden. If it shows up right click on it and check "lock the task bar" this will keep it from being moved and or right click on it and select properties and un-check "auto hide the task bar" Let me know if this helped, Thanks for using FixYa
