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.

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?

SD MEMORY CARD!!!!


Hi Sandra,

If you are attempting to transfer photos off an SD card in your camera and you are connecting your camera directly to your PC then you may want to get an external SD card reader as this is a fairly common problem and an external reader should solve it.

If you are already using a card reader I would think that the cables connecting the reader to your computer are defective. To test this try connecting your card reader to a different USB port, if it functions fine then you know the problem is with the previous port you were connecting too.

ALSO, check in "my computer" and see if it registers as a removable drive there. If not, then check in the device manager while the card is inserted and look for any yellow icons. There is a chance that the card reader need a driver installed or updated.

Hope this helps and please take a second to rate!

Do you have the taskbar going along the bottom of the screen?
If so, do you see the word desktop. close near where the time is?
If so, click on the word desktop. it should open up and show you all your desktop icons.

If not let me know and we will try something else.

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.

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 ;)
