start menu not always visible RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,


    I've just recently got a new Dell Latitude E6500 running Vista Business SP1.  The problem is when I've got a few programs running, e.g. VS2008, Word, Outlook etc, and click on the start menu I only get the square image that is located on the top right of the menu.  If I minmise all of the windows and then open the start menu - everything is fine.  If I use Start and D to get to the desktop I still have the same problem.


    Has anyone else come across this problem before?  Is there a solution?

    I haven't seen anything similar to this?


    It may be associated with the Graphics driver.


    If this happened right out of the box, I would check with Dell for any known issues with this behavior.


    Hope this helps.
