This may be too late for you, but I had the same problem with my old toshiba laptop. The support person I talked to had me take out the battery, leave the computer plugged in and push and hold the on button for 10 - or 15 seconds. She said it discharges something or other and to periodically run the computer without the battery. Sometimes my screen just goes blank on my new computer and this always fixes the problem.

Good luck.

Can you get to the control panel? If not, can you boot up in safe mode and get to the control panel? From the control panel, the event viewer in Administrative Tools will tell you some of the errors, though it sounds like you don't know a lot about computers, maybe find a friend who can help you find the problem.

My icon for the battery power monitor has dissapeared from my taskbar can you help me get it back please

Do you have Windows 7? If so, you can right-click on the bottom right corner of your desktop (try right-clicking the time/date), where the icons for volume control, wireless, battery, etc... should be and select Properties. You should then see a screen where you can turn on/off the icons/notifications for battery power (sometimes my volume control disappears and i have to do this.
Otherwise you can go here, Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Notification Area Icons and you should find the same thing. Then just turn on your battery power icon/notifications.
Hope this helps.

I dont have the software that shows on screen when starting the WiFI or blutooth or lowdspeeker etc.


to activate the wifi switch it is i believe it is down of the left front of the laptop actually on the front of the laptop itself and normally a slide switch which needs to be pushed over to the right before it will activate

loud speaker icon depending on which operating system your running

if you are on windows 7 look over to the bottom right handof your screen if you cant see the audio
icon that looks like a loud speaker

can you see a upward facing arror

if so click on that arrow then click customize then go find the volume icon and click show icon
and notification

if on xp try this
settings/control panel
somewhere in there you should be able to tell it to show in taskbar

good luck

Hey Snazz,

Take a look for a bluetooth icon in the system tray (by the clock). you may have to click the arrow (if present) by the clock to show all the icons in the system tray. If you can find a bluetooth icon, click on it, or right click on it to show connection options. Please let me know if this sorts it out for you. If not, I may be able to help more.

I'm trying to get the volume icon back on the taskbar and the box that says Volume under where it says which icons will always show won't let me check it

Which window are you using currently, should mention first. I will give you common suggestion for xp. Go to control panel > click on Sound and there is the option to choose show/hide the icon on taskbar. if the box is already check for showing the sound icon on taskbar, just uncheck the box and click Apply, again click "check"box and click OK ..Hope it will show now.

Further please let us know. For more help please stay connected with Fixya.

Thanks for joining us.

Have a nice day.

Dell Inspiron 6000 won't connet wireless network after reinstall

check DEVICE MANAGER if the wireless card have the right driver installed. if you found that the wireless card have yellow exclamation point on the right it means, you installed a wrong driver.

check also in BIOS if the wireless card is enable and the switch is turn on.

press Fn+F2 to enable wireless radio/anthena (funtion key with wireless icon in blue color)

some dell laptop have hard switch located right side check this and turn the switch on.

if you want to see the icon n task bar, go to control connection...right click on wireless properties...check Show on taskbar
