Again, you are not supplying enough info for anyone to be able to help you. Firstly what brand is your laptop? What operating system is it running, i.e. Windows 7, XP Linux, etc. Also what exactly is your problem, you mentioned not being able to find a shortcut, is the laptop booting up and your trying to find a shortcut that used to be on the desktop, but is not there now?
If this is the case, there several possible solutions. If you are using Windows, try clicking the right mouse button on your mouse, or trackball (which ever your using) while the pointer is on your desktop, select arrange icons by, ensure auto-arrange is checked and align to grid is checked, your icon should reappear. if this doesn't send me a message and we'll investigate further.

Can't find my Google icon


Fix All My Computer Shortcut Links
Computers often use shortcut links to make it easier for users to locate and open files.
These links are commonly placed in a folder easily accessible to users, such as a desktop folder.
When a shortcut is created, it is given directory information and an icon.
If the file associated with a shortcut is later moved, the shortcut may fail to locate the file.
When this problem occurs, you need to update the shortcut's directory information.
This process is often automated by operating systems, but in a some instances, you need to repair shortcuts manually

Right-click on a broken shortcut link's icon.
Select the "Properties" option. Locate the "Target" box and copy its information into your clipboard using the Ctrl and C keys.
Open the "My Computer" folder on your computer and paste the target information into the folder's address bar using the Ctrl and V keys.
If the address bar is not viewable, you may need to enable it in the folder's settings.
Find address bar options in the "View" menu under "Toolbars."
The file's target path folder will open.
Locate the file in the target path folder.
If the file is not present, the target path is inaccurate and likely the cause of the shortcut link error.
Locate the file in its correct folder.
Browse folders or search for the file by typing the file name into the "Start" menu.
After finding the file, open the properties of the shortcut link icon again.
Copy the file's correct path, from the containing folder's address bar, and paste it in to the "Target" box, replacing the incorrect link.
Another way to find a file's target path is by right clicking on the file and selecting Properties.
You can find accurate target information in the "Target" box, provided the icon is the original file icon and not a shortcut.

You didn't actually transfer the pix, you created shortcuts to them. You'll have to have the camera attached to the Mac to delete the shortcuts. Then, move the files from the camera to the computer. That will clear the card, and insure you've actually got the files on the computer, not just shortcuts.

I disabled the wireless (wi-fi) using the shortcut key.now i want to access wi-fi but unable to start using the shortcut key..wht exactly happened? did the driver had been uninstalled or wht? plz tell wht...


It should toggle. I don't think the driver would get uninstalled. Usually it's a switch (on Acer) or a Fn (Wifi icon Button) that turns Wifi on or off.

You may have to search for networks by clicking on the signal bars on the bottom right part of your screen, in order to connect to the Wifi network that is at your location.

Also create a shortcut on your desktop to locate it easier next time.
