Lost start button, task bar and icons
I just reinstalled Win 7 Family Premium 64-bit on my computer after running into some problems. Everything seemed to load OK, but after I woke it from hibernation, all I had was the wallpaper. The start button, task bar and icons were gone and when I gave it the three-finger salute, all I got was the black screen. It disappeared after I hit the esc key.
When I right-click the mouse, I get the dialogue box. I can get to the desktop gadgets, but not screen resolution or personalize.
If I recall correctly, I had the same problem the first time I loaded Windows 7 and it turned out the computer had set my only monitor as the second monitor and everything was on the monitor I didn't have. Problem is, I forgot what I was told as to how to fix this.
Does anyone out there have any idea how to get to the screen resolution box to change this?
