Cursor disappeared


Here are two things I would try, not knowing your version of Windows:

1. Open Device Manager, double-click each "USB Root Hub, and under the "Power Management" tab, deselect "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power".
2. In Control Panel, (depending on your version of Windows) either:
A. Open Display Properties, Settings tab, Settings button, Troubleshoot, lower the mouse acceleration to see if that prevents the pointer from disappearing. This is from memory.. I don't have an XP machine running right now.
B. Open the Mouse applet, under "Pointer Options", select "Show the location of the pointer when I press the CTRL key". If there's a way to lower graphics hardware acceleration in Window 7, I can't find it.

Move task bar to bottom of page


The desktop screenshot might need reducing

Click start "Control Panel."


Click "Display" and then select the Settings tab in the Display Properties window.


Use the slider bar under in the screen resolution section of the applet to change the resolution and click "Apply."

The screen repaints at the new resolution.


Click "Yes" to keep the resolution, or answer "No" at the prompt to revert to the original settings.



The taskbar is a central user interface component within the Microsoft Windows 2000 operating system.


Located along the bottom of the screen by default, it includes the "Start" button, provides one-click access to all open programs and contains a collection of utility icons and the system clock in a section called the Notification Area.


Windows 2000 gives you the ability to adjust the behavior of the taskbar in several ways.


After you know where to find the proper menu item, performing this task takes only a few clicks.


Right-click on an empty area of the taskbar and select "Properties."


Click the "General" tab located along the top of the resulting dialog box.

Check the Always on Top box if you want the taskbar to appear above all other items on your screen.


Check the Auto Hide box if you want the taskbar to disappear into the bottom of the screen when you move the cursor away from the taskbar.


Check the Show Small Icons in Start Menu box if you want to enable this behavior.


Check the Show Clock box to show the system clock within the Notification Area at the right edge of the taskbar.


Check the Personalized Menus box if you want the "Start" menu to show the items you use regularly and hide the items you don't.


Click "OK" to confirm your changes.

They take effect immediately.


Hope this helps

I don't see my folders on my external hard disk. When I scan the disk for viruses I can see my folders while they are scanned. When I add new folders to it they don't disappear.


Hi,
It is due to virus activity. Some virus make the contents of the drive hidden, that is why user can't see the files. This can be fixed and data would be available to you. However, there are number of steps involved.
It is suggested that go to FOLDER OPTIONS - and select 'SHOW HIDDEN FILES & FOLDERS' and uncheck/ Deselect 'HIDE PROTECTED SYSTEM FILES'.

It would show the hidden files/ folders, if the system not infected Otherwise, from the clean/ virus free system you can see your data and copy all the required files/data. Select the required files and right-click and change the properties of the file by un-checking the hidden attribute. Please note that you can not change the properties (hidden attribute of the files) if the files are marked as system files. To change the attribute of such folders you can download and use iReset.
Dolwnload iReset and drag and drop the files/ folders on to its window to fix.

Also, make sure that you have a good antivirus installed and its updated. Scan your system and clean it. As long the the virus is there on you PC, you cannot get it fixed. However, if new folders don't disappear, it is likely that you would be able to fix the issue.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

Hi, My monitor has dull display. After starting my computer, I could see the desktop but after few seconds it disappears. I am sure whats happening. Please suggest me what to do.


My answer will help Windows XP and Windows 7 users.
When the computer starts, start pressing F8 button. After several seconds you will see the following menu.
Safe Mode Safe Mode with Networking Safe Mode with Command Prompt ---------------------------- ---------------------------- ----------------------------

If you have Win XP, there will be a menu item as 'Enable VGA Mode'. In Win 7 you will see 'Enable low-resolution video (640 x 480)'
Select this option and press enter. (XP users will have to enter again).
After the computer is ready, goto display properties and save the resolution.


- In XP right-click on desktop, select 'Properties', Click the 'Settings' tab (last tab on top), and click 'OK' button.

- In Win 7, Right-click on screen and select 'Screen Resolution'. Click 'OK' button.


(Ignore any warnings)



Restart the computer.



Set the screen resolution again to a reasonable setting.

- Be careful! If you set it too high (if the monitor does not support the resolution you select), again the screen might disappear! (Sometimes this happen automatically after installing a game)
