Pls right click on the Taskbar and select Show the Desktop. If this cannot solve the problem, maybe your windows is corrupted. Need to reinstall the windows.

No icon to control my touchpad on dell n5010


Hi,
It could be under 'SHOW HIDDEN ICONS' on bottom right corner of the screen.
It might have been disabled/unchecked from MSCONFIG.
You can try re-installing Touchpad Drivers from :

Let me know if you need any further help on this.
Thanks

My dell dimension c521 will boot but nothing shows on screen. I have tried another monitor and cable.


try to see if the harddisk is blinking as well, if all the lightning are no movement(blinking-loading status), then it's your board faulty, try call the warranty if your laptop still under it. otherwise, you need to send to shop for the hardware repair

My Alienware M11X R2's screen broke completely off. I thought I could just hook up an HDMI cable and use the base with a monitor but it keeps beeping... and the video wont show up on the monitor.


Do you mean that the hinges broke and the screen is no longer attached to the laptop. I googled ' Alienware M11X R2 screen' and one of the first results is a story from PC World which contains:


"Dell will repair broken hinges on any Alienware M11x system for any R1 or R2 customer worldwide regardless of warranty status," wrote Dell's John Blain, in a blog entry on the company's website.

Desktop screen


try booting in safe mode and see if the screen displays properly.

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal.



Try connecting another monitor to the computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor shows the 1 inch black space then your video card might be going bad or you might have a virus infection. If the Borrowed monitor displays ok then your original monitor is bad.

How do i turn on the bluetooth on my latitude E6400 Where do i find the webcam


Open Control Panel, switch to Classic View, and lok for the Bluetooth icon. You can double-click this and it will show you all the settings for your Bluetooth.
The camera is right atop your monitor screen-- it's very small.

My screen is white an cant find icons help


Can you access the monitors in built menu? If so adjust the brightness control to see if that helps. If not try another monitor, as I suspect that the monitor is at fault.

Are Dell monitors not compatible with older HP Pavilion Computer? I tried to connect my HP CPU to a Dell monitor and it will not recognize it at all.


It shouldn't make any difference which monitor you are connecting to any computer. In fact, I am running a 19" HP Flat Panel on my Dell Dimension 2400 right now. It is NOT a wide screen monitor as the Dell built in graphics card will not support the RESOLUTION RATIO required for the wide screen. Check what setting is "native resolution" for your monitor and see if your graphics card will support it. If not, using your old monitor, try different resolution settings. Right click on your desk top, click on properties and that should bring up the display properties box. Try a lower setting as larger settings are the ones that will give you a black screen. It will probably give you a smaller picture on your old monitor, or perhaps smaller or larger icons on the desk top. Accept the new settings, turn off your computer and switch monitors, and turn your computer back on. If you get a picture, but it does not fill the whole screen or the icons seem too large or small, then go back into properties from the desktop and try a different resolution ratio until the picture seems correct.

VGA monitor won't work on Dell XPS210


Is the connection different. If so you need a VGA to DVI converter. You can get this at Best Buy or Fry's or any computer store.

The memory issue should not be related. Go to control panel and then to the system icon and click system is should show the memory. You can also go in to the system bios to see actually how much you have. When the system boots. It should give you an option to go to the setup screen. The screen goes by quick so you may need to reboot a couple of times.

Please rate my response.

Dell desktop


i hav worked for dell for 2 years as tech support executive..helping ppl at 1800 tolfree number.
According t me is:-
1) use last known good configration.
(while the computer is starting u would see BIG blue DELL logo , at that time keep taping F8 till u get a black screen with options . one of the options in the middle would say "Last known goog configration that worked" ).
kindly do this step with no usb devices attached to computer.
kindly have a just a monitor cpu and keyborad and mouse.
2)if this doesnt work get to the same process above and try "safe mode " rather than "last known good configration"
-when u see the destop screen right click on it.click on arrange icons then click on show desktop icon.
