Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
My toggle button no longer shows three icons-it only shows the computer icon. It previously showed a computer icon, a TV icon, and a combined TV/computer icon. I cannot select to send visual to the TV. Where did the other two icons go? Did I erase these somehow?

Tips for a great answer:
Enable the wireless network card on the laptop.
Some laptops use a physical switch on the front or side of the computer to enable and disable the wireless card.
Most newer laptops use a software switch that can be toggled with a couple of keys on the keyboard.
The most common software switch toggle is by pressing the "Fn" key and "F2" at the same times.
Click the wireless icon by the clock in the lower-right corner.
Click on an available wireless hotspot.
Stronger signals are represented with more and longer bars.
Click the "Connect" button.
Enter a password, if required.
Click on Home, Work or Public when the dialog box appears.
Each of these three options represents different security levels.
When connecting to a public Wi-Fi hotspot, always select "Public."
Hope this helps.

Maybe you don't have your wireless turned on. Look on
both sides and in front for the Wireless Switch and turn it on.
Also once the wireless switch is turned on there are keystrokes that can toggle the wireless on or off. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN function key located at the lower left of the keyboard, then hit the correct F1 thru F12 key that toggles the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit will have the wireless signal icon )))) on it. Or it might have the icon of a tower with the wireless signal icon )))). Normally the screen will display Wireless On or Wireless Off when you toggle the wireless.
On some laptops there might be a button that you press above the keyboard or on the sides that turn the wireless on or off.
