Question about Sony VAIO Computers & Internet

How do I remove the yellow ! from my Vaio laptop icon in devices and printers

There is a yellow triangle with ! in it on both the Vaio laptop and Lexmark X3550 printer icons in Devices and Printers. System is Windows 7 home premium. Have installed and uninstalled the printer driver from both disc and online to no avail. Neither Sony online help nor Lexmark online help have been any use. Thanks Catsmith

Have you tried connecting to a different computer? The problem may be a mechanical breakdown of the printer itself.

SOURCE: remove the drop down icon bar on sony vaio

Usually, with a dropdown toolbar, you can put the cursor all the way to the top of the screen and with the toolbar visible, right click on it to activate a control menu from which you can stop it from dropping down, unlock it and move it to either sidr, or even turn it off altogether.

If this doesn't work, try entering yout laptop model name in Google search followed by "disable dropdown toolbar" for blogs and forums for your laptop model that may have a specific command or trick for your machine.

Good Luck

Yellow triangle is showing a hardware fault. Reboot and if that doesn't work, you need to check that the devices are enabled, working and that the drivers are all in place.

My msi laptop(cr420),have a webcam but it doesn't work and my wifi are not working too.

In Windows, click the Windows Icon (start), then click Control Panel.
Change "View By" to small icons, then choose device manager.
If you see yellow triangles with "!" in them next to items, then you are most likely missing device drivers for them.
You can visit MSIs support center to download the correct drivers for the cam and wireless adapter.

Open your "Device Manager" (right click my computer - find the device manager) - find the device with the yellow triangle - click properties. It will tell you the problem which you can then repair.
