are you using KDE? i used to use Mandrake and i think that's the default.
if so there should be a menu configuration program somewhere in the start menu.
sorry, i am in fluxbox right now and can't verify.
If not I have had this problem a number of times and have always found the (simple) solution on this site or google, can´t remember it off the top of my head as it hasn´t happened since I ditched the laptop.
Thats the right way to resolve the problem. This is a well known bug in some of the Mandrake 9.x releases. If you upgrade your system using urpmi, you should get updates that resolve the problem permanently.
