    tried this?

    Have you tried holding your pointer against the bottm of the screen? If the task bar appears while doing this, right-click an empty spot, click properties, and check-mark the "taskbar always on top" function. If this does not show the bar, than I don't know. Also, what keyboard are you using? You might try to uninstall/reinstall the keyboard drivers. Maybe someone else can jump in and help? :monkey:

    9250 and the task bar

    I am here because I was searching for an answer to the same problem.
    After installing the 9250 into a PC, the task bar is not there. Cntrl Esc does not make it visible. If I connect the video cable to the on-board video, I can see the task bar but nothing else, not even the mouse.
    It is like as if the task bar information is being sent to the on board video, and the rest of the information is being sent to the ATI video card.

    I could go through the whole uninstall and re-install process, but would like to avoid that if there is an answer.
