How do I troubleshoot a problem with my computer?

I keep losing my taskbar at the bottom of Windows XP.

Well the first thing to do is check it's properties. It sounds like you have it set to auto hide. Right click on it and go to properties make sure auto hide is not selected.

Your task bar is probably set to auto hide. Move your mouse to the bottom of the screen and right click with your mouse. Select always on top.

Right click on the task bar. You will look for properties. In here there will be some check boxes, uncheck auto hide task bar.

Is the task bar really lost, or is "auto-hide the task bar" enabled? Another thing to check would be to check the resolution of the screen.
