Windows 7: Taskbar only partially visible

2 ways to get Device Manager up. Click Start, right click computer, select properties and the screen that comes up on the top left will say Device Manager. Or, click Start, type Device Manager into Search Programs and Files and it will be right on top of the search. I'm afraid I can't quite follow your original problem. I hope this isn't considered highjacking but Lisa did ask. Good Luck

Or just do what whs above says.

Thank you..if I click in the middle of the resolution bar it defaults to either the high end or the low end.

Just got back from B&N, bought 6 diff manuals, hope I can find something in one of them. Thanks all whom tried to help me. Really appreciated.

I think that this is an issue for your TV/Monitor. Many flat screen TVs have a number of picture zoom modes, including 16:9, 4:3, and others. One of the modes is typically Zoom, whereby the central portion of the image is enlarged to fit the whole screen. I don't know whether or not this setting applies to the PC input though. What is the make and full model number of the monitor, and I'll have a look to see if I can find anything?

My computer doesn't have VGA port, I use HDM1 to connect flat panel tv to HP Pavillion Elite computer.

I did use my remote to go through settings which were normal, cinerama and zoom and the icons on taskbar are still not completely visible in all but the normal setting which simulated a square ugly screen, lol

What is your GFX card?

When you download drivers from a manufacturer website, it install it's own GX control panel which can allow you to set zoom functions etc.

Shrinking icons

If I use the recommended setting of 1920 x 1080, the taskbar icsons shrink so that I can only see the tip of them.

I unchecked lock task bar and moved it up, now I can see all the icons except for the start orb which is partially hidden to the left of the screen.

The taskbar is now about 1.5" high which isn't what I would like but at least I can now see the icons and notifications.

Thank you to everyone for your time and kind attention to my problem.

You may also have to switch from 4:3 aspect ratio (square ugly screen) to a 16:9 aspect ratio (rectangular screen) then retry the normal, cinerama and zoom.

I have found it useful when getting a new TV or other electronic item to read the whole manual and familiarize yourself with all of it's settings, sometimes there is a hidden sub menu that provides a solution found only by reading the manual thoroughly.
