They may also be hidden, go to ANY folder (start>documents) for example, then Organize> Folder Options> View (tab)>Show Hidden Files, Fol.... etc
That should show them! But if you didn't do this it's either a prank from a buddy or a virus.

The appearance of my icons changed, they now have a small blue square with two right arrow symbyls in the square.

Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Windows XP
    Change Default Icons in Windows XP
  1. Step 1 Start Windows in your normal fashion.
  2. Step 2 Click the Start menu and select the "My Computer" option. Alternately, you can double-click the "My Computer" desktop icon if you've enabled it to appear on the desktop.
  3. Step 3 Double-click on your hard drive to open the directory.
  4. Step 4 Find the program for which you wish to change the associated icon. You'll need to know its location on the hard drive. If you don't know where it is, you can use the Start menu "Search" feature to locate it.
  5. Step 5 Right-click on the file, and click the "Properties" menu option. This will open the Properties menu for the file.
  6. Step 6 Click the "Change Icon" button. If there is no "Change Icon" button, you will need to create a desktop icon instead. To do so, cancel out of the Properties menu and right-click the file again. This time, select "Send to -> Desktop (create shortcut)."
  7. Step 7 Click on one of the icons that appears in the list. If the icon you want isn't on the list, click the "Browse" button to search for more icons.
  8. Step 8 Click "OK" once you've chosen the icon you'd like to use.
  9. Step 9 Click "Apply" to confirm your changes, and then click "OK" to close the window.
  10. Step 10 Wait a moment to see the icon change. There are times, like when a lot of system resources are in use, when icon changes can take a moment to appear.

Cd drive has stopped working

Will need some more information. It could be anything from a loose connection on the inside of the computer to a failed drive. When you open the My Computer icon, is the icon for the drive displayed? If not, does the CD drive appear in the device manager? (Right click on the My Computer icon and choose Manage on the menu to pops up, select Device Manager and look for CD/DVD drives). If the drive does not appear in these areas, then I'd start by checking all of the connections to the drive (power cable and ribbon cable) and motherboard. If that does not fix it, check the BIOS to be sure that the on board IDE is enabled. After doing all of that, if you still get no response from the drive, then it is probably time to replace the drive itself.

MacBook connected Hitachi CP x301 Icons do not appear

Ok what's happening is that you have it set up as an extension of your desktop, you need to mirror the displays. when your projector is plugged in and it is showing only the desktop background, open "System Preferences," click "Displays," click "Positioning" and check the box that says "Mirror Displays." This should do the trick.
