Laptop startup and shut down problem

My acer laptop has suddenly developed the following problem.
On startup the icons on the right of the task bar are different and the mouse is frozen. however on plugging in an external mouse i can get things to work but when i click on start to go to shutdown the laptop freezes and the only way to get it to go again is to let the battery run down. It then starts up again correctly. Have tried system restore but exactly the same happens. please help

How do i get a question mark on my keys instead of an e with a mark over it


Hi there, Your keyboard has been changed from English to French Canadian by the sounds of it! Go down to your task bar and on the right side look for the keyboard icon or two letters. Click on that icon, and select US instead of what is selected right now. You're looking for something like this if you're on XP - http://www.mirecki.us/computing/language/LangBar1.jpg It will be on the right side, to the left of the icons and the arrow to "show more". If you don't see the keyboard icon, right click on the task bar, go to Toolbars, and select "language bar". You should then see the keyboard or letters.
If you're still having troubles, comment back and I'll be sure to help! Cheers, Alex

How to put program type on tool bar


  1. Adding Icons to the Task Bar

    1. Click on the Start Menu to open it
    2. Click on "Programs" and find the program for which you want to create an icon
    3. Move your mouse pointer to the program you want to use
    4. Depress and hold down the right mouse button while you drag the icon to the Quick Launch toolbar section of the Task Bar
    5. When you release the right mouse button, a short menu will appear
    6. Choose "Create Shortcut(s) Here." An icon will be created in the Quick Launch toolbar on the Taskbar

  2. Deleting Icons from the Task Bar

    1. Move the mouse pointer to the icon you want to delete
    2. Right-click on the icon
    3. Choose "Delete" from the short menu that appears. The icon has been deleted, but the program is still available to you on your hard disk

    NOTE: If you have carefully followed the steps above to add the icon to your Quick Launch toolbar, deleting it will NOT delete the program from your computer, it will simply remove the icon from your toolbar. The program will still be available to you.

Also you can "Drag" the program, to the bar, and "Drop" it on it. Check out a freeware application called StartupCPL at http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml. This places a Startup icon in your Control Panel which, when opened, lists all applications on your PC with a check box for each one. Simply put a check mark in each application you want to open minimized on startup. By the way, it states it is for Windows ME and 2000, but I have had it on XP for quite a while and it works fine.

No icons or tool bar on desktop at startup


In your desktop, Right click your mouse and properties will show and look for show desktop option. And then move your mouse to the bottom of your computer screen, if toolbar will show, then your toolbar is set to automatic hide. Change the settings in your Taskbar and Start Menu Properties and change there the settings, uncheck the auto hide task bar.

After your system boots, try right-clicking on the task bar and select "Properties" in the dialog box that appears. Click the tab that says "Notification Area" and see if the box "Hide Inactive Icons" is checked. If so, remove the checkmark. You can also leave the check there and select the "Customize" button to mark the ones you want to Hide/Show all the time.

Icons and start upmenu bar absent


explorer.exe is what displays the icons and the startup bar on the screen so try opening explorer.exe from the task manager. Or if it is already running close it and then reopen it.

The wireless icon has vanished on my acer aspire one netbook and i cant get online


Go to Start/Settings/Network Connections. When the window opens right click on the Wireless Network Icon and select Properties. In XP there should be a check box to allow display of notification when connected. If some other OS, hold the right button down on the Icon and drag it to the task bar. It should drop an icon for showing the status.
Before doing all of this, is there an arrow to the left of the icons? If so, click on it see if the Icon is simply hidden.

My taskbar does not appear when I am viewing web pages


It sounds like you have your task bar set to auto hide. I'm not too familiar with this brand of laptop but if you are using windows you should be able to follow these instructions to fix this. If you know how to get to the control panel (start menu) and click on appearance and themes there should be a task bar and start menu icon there. Click on that icon and select how you want your task bar to be displayed.

Laptop sound


It sounds as if you have got your inbuilt microphone active and it is amplifying the sound coming from your speakers, try muting the microphone off through your sound or speaker icon normally on your task bar on right hand side, this happened to me when i first installed a web cam and set up the microphone volume. Hope this helps, other than re installing sound card drivers.
