Task bar on bottom of screen and ribbon on top of screen disappear -- can no longer access them

Help -- at work I have an old dell monitor.   I have an old dell laptop attached to a dock and the old monitor.   the task bar and the upper tool bar (or whatever depending on what program I'm in) disappear.  It's like they're too low on the bottom to access or too high on the top to access.  
what's wrong?
thanks, barbara

Unfortunate.

I purchased a Dell ST2320L monitor. When I am in Windows, there are black bars on the top and bottom, as well as the sides. When I am gaming, however it is full screen. How do I adjust the monitor in...


thats really odd that windows 7 doesnt give you full screen but the game does? change your resolution settings around to see if that helps altho i doubt it. check menu settings on your monitor and see if you can change its aspect ratio

Need to get screen size to show all . cant see


Things to check: Are your display settings set to "native resolution" of your screen. The native resolution is the actual dimensions (in pixels) of your flat-panel screen.
Looks like the Dell E153FP 15" has a native resolution of 1024x768. In windows, go to your control panel, in display settings, and ensure the resolution is set to 1024x768.
If that does not work, you can try the "auto adjust" feature on the monitor. On many Dell monitors, you can get this by pressing and holding the + button (on the monitor). You'll see the words "auto-adjust" appear on the screen if this works. If that doesn't work, you may be able to find auto adjust by navigating the menues in your monitor's menu, which you can get to by pressing the "menu" button on your monitor (sometimes this looks like a little rectangle icon). If it's an alignment problem, this should fix it right away.
If neither of the above work, it's probably your video card. Make sure your video card drivers are the correct ones for your card and OS, and up to date. You can also mess with display options under Control Panel > Display, under the "settings" tab, and at the bottom click the "Advanced" button, and it will bring up the advanced settings for your videocard.
Good luck!

Windows XP taskbar sink


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
  5. Click Apply
  6. Press OK
Thats it

How to disassemble monitor Dell 1800fp ?


Remove the base by the button release or 4 screws on the back. On the bottom of the monitor near the corners you will find two thin slots where you can insert a thin wide blade screwdriver or pry tool. Very gently pry the back from the bezel toward the center from both of these slots until the bottom is seperated, then contilue from the slots around the corners and up the sides until you have seperated the entire back from the bezel. Lay the monitor on the bezel and remove the back ( do not try to remove the bezel, at least not yet). Lift the tape that secures the ribbon cable from the bezel buttons to the logic board. Unplug the ribbon cable from the logic board by pulling on the connector (not the cable). Remove the cable covers from the back of the case (one has a screw, the other has a lift tab) and disconnect the lamp connectors and ribbon cable connectors (do not pull on the wires). remove four screws and lift the metal back from the screen.

The task bar along the bottom of the screen, I can't see it


Adjust controls on the monitor. There a double box that lays on top of the other. Adjust that option... You may also want to adjust the setting that shows a box with arrows pointing up and down. adjust it as well.. Experiment on the settings. You'll get it right.

Dell Monitor E773C


on dell monitors they have buttons on the front (at least the old ones do).   If you can't see things on your screen like task bar on the bottom, or anything on the top and sides --- try adjusting this buttons.  They control vertical size, horizontal size, etc. -- also position on the screeen    If you accidently hit them (I did) it throws everything off.
good luck

Stuck screen resolution on monitor


it could have something to do witht he power setting's , go to properties / then screensaver , then click power options , u can turn sleep mode off there, and also change a few other things that may be causing this, your laptop may also have its own power setting , which is normaly in the task bar near the clock , high proformance , office, games, e.c.t , i assume when u plug the lcd in you have the power cord in the laptop connected, so i would just suggest my first option , and change the settings there , hope this helps
