For some reason IntelliSense has stopped appearing in Visual Studio 2005 (C# development), how can I get it back?

The following is the options for IntelliSense that are checked options:
Show Completion list after a character is typed
(disabled but checked)
      Place keywords in completion lists
      Place code snippets in completion lists

Selection In Completion List
Committed by typed the following characters:
{}[]().,:;+-*/%&|^!~=<>?@#'"\
Committed by pressing the space bar
IntelliSense pre-selects most recently used members

Can you check the following

from your Visual studio IDE click on tools->option menu
in options dialog, Select Text Editor->All Languages->General.
on the right side you will get options in statement completion,
check all the options and do the same in Basic->General options too. click ok now you should get the statement completion options

I have had a look at that as per your post, the only options not ticked there are:
Enable virtual space
Word wrap
Line numbers

Do they need to be ticked?  As I still can't get anything to come up when I press . or other keys

I've had this happen. I shut down Visual studio, reboot, restart Visual studio and intellisense comes back.

I have went into Options -> Text Editor -> C# and selected the Auto list members option.  That seems to have sorted my problem for myself.
