Using Windows 7.(Lost Desktop Icon).


Click the mouse "down" onto the "nearby" icon, and then "drag" that icon to move it somewhere a few inches away. The "missing" icon may now become visible.

Or, if you have used "auto-arrange desktop icons", look everywhere on your desktop for the "new" location of the icon.

Open the side of your computer. The card that your monitor plugs into may have come loose. Carefully pull it from the slot (you may need to unscrew it first or remove a bracket that keeps it stable; plus there may be a lever at the back of the card you may need to pull on) and then plug it back in again. It is not uncommon for this card (called the video or graphics card) to come loose when being moved around.

I have an acer aspire laptop, when i start it up its says configuring updates stage 3 of 3 0% complete then it will shut down come back on say the same again and shut down again. it will keep on doing this


Maybe you could try the last known good configuration. When the laptop is starting up, wait until the acer screen disappears and then tap F8 on the keyboard before the windows screen comes up. You should get a black screen with some options that say safe mode. The fourth or so option on the list will be "Last Known Good Configuration". The computer should try and load windows. Hopefully that will restore the machine before the update. 

If it works it would be a good idea to go to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/ and fully update your laptop. This will download the update manually instead of doing it with automatic updates.

Internet continually dropping out


There are many things that can be causing this. Like; wired/wireless, if wireless how far away from your access point or router is your pc or you may need another access point for a stronger signal. Also try moving your pc when you loose your signal. Just a little repositioning might grab a stronger signal. Your modem: Try unplugging it when this happens wait for about 1 min then plug back in. You may be in an area that's causes "bottle necking" a term used for clogged internet signals. This usually happens during weekends and peak internet usage hours. This would be a job for your internet provider. There is also a reset on your modem. If unplugging doesn't do it after all the lights have come back on and the internet light stops blinking, look for a very small hole somewhere on your modem (not router). Get an object small enough to fit into it and strong enough to add pressure. Tooth picks won't work! Now push it in (while turned on) and hold it until all the lights go off. It may seem like it takes forever, just be patient. Once all the lights go out let go of the reset; wait again for all the lights to come back on & internet light to stop blinking.
If still same problem could possibly be your ethernet/wireless card going bad but they just kind of either work or they don't.
Start keeping tract of the times/days this happens and how long your internet is down. I'd do this for 1-2 days then call your internet provider. Theres one catch with them tho, they can't see your problem or diagnose it on their end unless your down at the time you call them. You may just need another modem. But keep on them if you come to this step. They like to say "ok your good now - bye" and then you'll have the same problem again. If this happens demand a new modem. It's free...

I have a HP pavilion mx70 monitor which is about 7 years old. Suddenly when I switch it on the screen keeps turning a 'rose' color. It occassionally goes back to normal but will constantly turn pink again....


Its the monitor. first I highly suggest upgradeing your computer. But the problem is that over time the connection port in the monitor that hooks the wire up to the computer gets worn down and the solder begins to weaken. And eventully a connection becomes loose or breaks and when the cable is at a certain angle or is moved around the screen can change colors. So if you have this problem jiggle the cable a bit or try to find a position you can put the cable in so that it doesent move around too mutch.

Ok got a laptop problem, for my acer aspire 3000, im sure its the lcd, i turn it on, sometimes it works fine, other times it doesnt,...


Unfortunately, you will probably have to open up the laptop, and check the seating of the cables inside both the base and the LCD. It sounds like a loose connection, or a broken wire. I had similar issues with a Dell laptop, and it turned out to be a wire going to the ccfl tube (The backlight) that was shorting out against the case of the laptop when moved. Also, just try to re-seat the connections, it sounds like you have already had it apart. The cables should come off easily, and go back on with ease too, but do not attempt if you are not experienced, or at least comfortable with this type of thing.
