Hi Joan
Depending on the type of computer you have and the operating system you are running will depend on what icons are displayed. If you have a windows pc running XP or Vista then the icons can look different at first.

The pc should also come with a getting started tutorial which would help you get started right away
The best idea would be to Click on START then All Programms then Accessories then TOUR WINDOWS XP

Work you way through this tutorial and if you are still finding you need more help then look around and find a company or individual who can give you some computer lessons. This way you will save money in the long run as there is so much to learn when you are not familiar with pc's.

Of course for all your quick solutions using FixYa is a great way to get answers quickly...

I hope this has helped

Warmest Regards
John
This will give you some basics about how Windows XP works

Have you tried to go to the manufacturer's website to download the manuals?
right click your mouse over the icon and see what the program is.
or you can go to start settings control panel add/remove programs and see the list of installed software. (most installed programs have icons, others, such as java, won't).
double click any icon and the particular program will start. click on the red X in the upper right corner to close any program.

Need to know how to get icons from top to bot


You just move the icons where you want them. Maybe you are saying your can't see all your icons. if that is so, go into the display under the control panel and change your screen resolution. The higher the resolution, the smaller the icons and more will appear on the display.

My computer desktop icons and task manager cannot be seen. i dont know how to fix this. can you hel me please? thanks.


If you switch to a different monitor, can you now see what you expected to see?
If not, then it's probably the video-adapter inside your computer that has stopped working.

Or, did you set the colour of your "wallpaper" to match the colour of the icons?

Vertical Vs Horizontial display, no VGA rotate icon to change it


On some systems I have seen "Ctrl, Alt + arrow" change the orientation. That works on the XP's at work, but not here at home. But it's worth a try.

My packard bell s4 laptop computer screen has turned 270 degrees clockwise and i don't know how to turn it back. help please! :)


I have seen this before with some ATI graphics card. In the tray beside the clock should be an icon for the graphics card utilities. If you right click on there you should find an option to change it back.

Though, I remember navigating with a twisted screen was hard. Good luck.

Musicmatch


All your data/music are store on your Hard Drive (HD). If you got your old hard drive back, you should able to see all your files. Changing your mainboard doesn't effect what you saved on your HD (pictures, music.....) .

As for the icon for your music, you can dowload and reinstall muscimatch, then all your icon will reappear as you saw them before. With any windows system, certain file are assosciated with certain file. ie word document will have a ".doc" file extentsion. Wonce you reinstall Musicmatch, musicmatch will be your deault player thus having your old icons back.

I just want to reset everything


if you mean you want to reset everything then i'm going to assume that you want to reformate your pc. And as far as your icons go i'm going to assume that your talking about your My Computer and My Documents icons and if you want thouse on your desk top do the following:

Right click the taskbar and go to properties
Next click the start menu tab
Choose classic start menu and your icons should appear on the desktop

But this is only my assumtion as to what you mean, as Fusiondc said please elaborate a little more so i can help you out with this ;)
