Please can any of you good lads and lassies tell me in not too techie words why when I hover the pointer over the clock it no longer tells me the date Etc and when I hover over the two tv`s it no longer tells me my connection speed, this has only just happened in the last few days, I haven`t put anything on my comp. I`m on win98,P3 450Mhz I don`t know if you need anything else. Many thanks for any replies I may receive. Brian.
I saw your post last night, but did not reply simply because I'm not sure of the answer. I had a search round the forum and the Microsoft knowledge base but still couldn't find any relevant information.
This is only a guess, but will do no harm if you try and meanwhile someone may have the correct answer. If you are using a CRT type monitor, right click on the desktop and choose properties, then the settings tab. Move the slider to the right one stage to increase your resolution, click on apply and OK. Then do the same again but take your resolution back to it's original setting.
Your display will now be back to the way you normally have it set. The brief change of resolution may just activate your Icons ability to display the information again. Regards. j.
