The taskbar is upside down and at the top of the screen


On Windows computers, you should have what is known as the taskbar. This is the gray strip that runs across the bottom of your computer and which displays icons for quickly accessing programs you frequently use. The taskbar also shows the "Start" menu, clock and icons for your Internet connections. Sometimes icons do not appear properly in the taskbar. This usually is because the computer is new and hasn't had icons placed in the taskbar manually, or because a default setting is off in the OS properties. Both are simple fixes.

1.Right-click the "Start" icon and select "Properties."

2.Select the "Taskbar" tab in the "Taskbar and Start Menu Properties" dialogue box.

3.Uncheck "Lock the taskbar" and "Auto-hide the taskbar." Check "Show Quick Launch." Since the Quick Launch box isn't available in some systems, you may need to right-click on the taskbar area, choose "Toolbars" and then select "Quick Launch."

4.Navigate to the programs you want to show on the taskbar through the "Start" menu or on your desktop. Right-click the program and drag it to the taskbar. Choose "Create shortcuts here" from the menu that appears. The icon for the program should appear in the taskbar.

Hello,
Please try one of the following option:
Browse to http://dsldevice.lan or to the IP address of your Thomson Gateway (by default: 192.168.1.254).
If your computer runs Windows Vista or Windows XP, you can also access the Thomson Gateway Web Interface using the Internet Gateway Device icon.

If you computer runs Windows Vista:
1 On the Windows Start menu, click Network.
2 The Network window appears:
3 Right-click your Thomson Gateway (displayed as THOMSON TGXXX) and click View device web page.
4 The Thomson Gateway Web Interface appears.

If you computer runs Windows XP:
1 Go to My Network Places.
2 The My Network Places window appears:
3 Double-click your Thomson Gateway (displayed as THOMSON TGXXX).
4 The Thomson Gateway Web Interface appears.

Be sure you don't have any popup blocker or firewall interfering.

For more reference here below the manual (Version 7 that is basically the same of V8)

This is either an operating system failure or hard drive failure. Start by reloading a fresh operating system (Vista) with your recovery or operating system disc. If you have any problems during or after the install, then it's the hard drive and will need to be replaced.

The first thing to check is the preferences for display. It sounds from what you say like it is there that the problem lies.

Right click anywhere on the desktop EXCEPT on an icon, and choose the bottom option "Personalize" from the menu that appears. On the left is an option called "Adjust font size (DPI)" start by checking that this is set to 96 and not the larger 120dpi.

You might also like to change the Theme back to Windows Vista and see if that fixes it. These options should change your screen back to the way it was.
