Please help! I do experience problem with a laptop: can't switch it on.The icon on the front panel shows me that i am connected to the plug and also battery is fully charged.My laptop is toshiba satellite 1905-s301.
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.

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.
Open the TASK MANAGER, open the PROCESSES tab, highlight "explorer.exe", click on "end process", Open "file", "New Task", Type "explorer" without quotation marks. OR Control Panel, Sound, depending on your OS, You will find a box to show tray icon. If it is checked, uncheck, apply, then check, apply. The Task Manager will remove stored icons that fill the program, and restart the icons.
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.
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

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.
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.
