SOURCE: Desktop problem

It is possible that the task bar is in 'auto hide' First thing you should do is rest your cursor on all four sides of your desktop for a few seconds and see if it appears. If it doesn't than move your cursor to the bottom of the screen and right click and choose 'properties' and uncheck the 'auto ide box'. I am not positive that this well solve your problem, but its the best I can do at the moment. I well research it and find more info, than I well post it for you.

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.

Has anyone had any luck with getting on internet mine say can not associate


This worked for me:


Click on the little TV, the RT28701 box will appear. Select the "Wireless Information" tab and highlight your network connection, then click the "Advanced" tab. Check "Use Windows to configure my wireless settings" and the "Automatically connect to non-preferred networks" boxes. "Networks to Access" should read All Available.


Next, double click your highlighted network connection. The "Wireless Networks Properties" box will appear. Make sure the Network Name (SSID) is your network connection.


Under "Wireless Network Key (WEP)" box the information should read:


"Encryption: WEP"; "Authentication: Open"; "Network Key: (the number on your modem)"; "Key index: 1"


All the little boxes should not have checkmarks in them.


Click OK which will return you to the RT28701 box. Click OK again to return to the desktop. Click "Start" tab to shut down netbook and then restart. Turn Wifi on by holding down F9 function key for about 5-10 seconds, or double click Wifi icon and then click the Power On box, which will turn it on. Wait for little tv to show up on bottom taskbar and the red x to disappear from it. Then, click Internet Explorer and it should connect.

I have a Toshiba Satellite A215-S7444. Recurring problem with wireless connection. Will be online when pop-up box titled "connect broadband connection" displays. Still connected though. Can hit cancel most...


The little icon on the task bar is not always an accurate and reliable indicator of the status of your connection. If you are having occasional dropouts of signal, try repositioning your laptop either closer to the wireless transmitter or in a more direct, line-of-sight position. Sometimes it becomes necessary to install a wireless "extender" which boosts the signal to enable you to stay connected, especially if there are several other wireless networks within range of your machine.

Eeepc has no icons, just blue screen, can't access anything! Linux


When I was using Linux, there were 4 screens. On the bottom an icon showed which screen I was on. If you have that Icon, click the main screen (upper left) and you should be OK. Let me know if this works.

Wireless switch


Although the wireless switch on your Acer does turn on/off your wireless card, you will also need to make sure that your operating system (Windows) has the wireless card enabled.

Do the following:
  1. Go to Control Panel (Start -> Control Panel)
  2. Double-click Network Connections
  3. Right-click on Wireless Network Connection / WLAN (you can tell it is disabled if the icon is greyed)
    3dce7ab.jpg
  4. Click on "Enable" (if you see Disable, your network is already enabled)
You should check the bottom-right-hand area of your screen (in the menu bar) for your wireless icon. If this is not appearing, you'll have to go into Network Connections again and do the following:
  1. Right-click on Wireless Network Connection (your wireless network adapter)
  2. Select Properties
  3. Click the checkbox that says "Show icon in notification area when connected"
    685e49b.jpg
  4. Now click on the Wireless Networks tab (at the top of this dialogue box)
  5. Scan for a network and connect to it.
