  • The battery icon on the toolbar disappeared on Satellite L

    The battery icon on my laptop disappeared! which is annoying because I do not know how much battery is left.

    Particularly instructions on how I can choose what he re - appear.
    I tried right clicking on the toolbar but can't find it!

    Thank you very much


    You don t the right something on your operating system, but I assume you are using Win 7
    Windows 7 hides most of the default status bar icons.
    You need to fix to 'Show' If you want to show it again.
    But even when hidden, you can display all the icons in the status bar by clicking the small arrow just to the left of the status bar.

    You can do this:
    Right click on the taskbar-> properties-> in the 'Notification area' click on 'Customize' and then (the battery icon) 'display the icon and notifications '.

  • Battery Notification icon disappeared and Im unable to put in operation (option is greyed out)

    Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64 (Compaq Presario Notebook)

    The battery in my menu task notification icon disappeared about 2 weeks ago... I tried to turn on the hidden, icon but it is grayed out and could not click on that I am the full administrator and not on a network of group work or school. I use the laptop for very simple tasks, so I should not have group policy. I went to Device Manager and battery information says that I have a Composite of Microsoft AC adapter battery, a battery of method control compatible ACPI Microsoft, Microsoft... I did not perform any task in there because it seemed a little daunting and Im unfamiliar with this area of the computer as my knowledge is limited.  I have also noticed recently that I have installed Windows Mobility Center that has the power option. May - so that it affects the missing icon? I feel a bit silly to post this question but I've searched the forum and was unable to find the right answer to my problem... Can someone give me some other advice I could try... Thank you!!

  • Start icon disappears from the taskbar. Command prompt concludes that he cannot fix corrupted files.

    My power icon disappeared from my taskbar after a reboot. Following the advice of the Forum I turned on command prompt and asked the sfc/scannow.

    After a long search, I received notification that there were a few corrupted files and not all could be fixed. This had occurred previously in 2012.

    After a security alert, security, I downloaded the program named Emet. After reading more below in the Microsoft forum, I found the comments which Emet

    may damage files. I decided to uninstall Emet. When I finished that I discovered that the Emet icon has disappeared from the taskbar along

    with the battery icons and a few other icons. I took my Asus laptop at Best Buy and the tech there called a Microsoft service don't. and

    has got instructions to restore the missing icons using the appropriate record. It was in summer 2012. When I stopped my laptop Sunday, December 21, 13

    and then reopened Tuesday, December 23, 13 I found that, once more, my power icon had disappeared from the notification area. The correspondent

    subprogrammes in the control panel for the management of the icons in the notification area were inoperative for the icon of power and a few others. This

    was the exact situation I had in 2012, about 16 months ago.

    After failing to solve the problem with the command prompt, I thought I would ask for help. For the moment, I managed without going through the power icon

    presented at the center of mobility in the office and after having pinned the control panel to the taskbar on the right.

    Hi Ronald,.

    When you first start a new computer, the operating system typically runs Startup service initializations that can take anywhere from one to six hours to finish, depending on which applications are preloaded on the computer. Make sure that you give the operating system sufficient time to finish these Startup service initializations until you stop or restart the computer. This problem generally not happen once the operating system has completed initialization of all before background services is restarted.

    I suggest you refer to the following article which has a few registry tweaks to solve the problem. Please follow the steps and check out them.

    System icons do not appear in the notification area in Windows Vista or Windows 7, you must restart the computer

    Note: this section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems can occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you proceed with caution. For added protection, back up the registry before you edit it. Then you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.

  • BlackBerry Curve 8330 of Smartphones icons disappear!

    My icons disappeared a few weeks there, on a trip... removed battery and everything was ok... this weekend it happened again... the battery did nothing, but now I get an error 523, verizon said they have never heard of... didn't call technical support no help yet once... online and updated the software was better for 24 hours and it happened again... Verizon just sent me a new phone... and I replaced my info using the bb desktop manager backup and support... GUESS WHAT - it happened again.   I have a large black circle and four small gray flat circles on my screen.   I can switch to a program by using the alt/back buttons then switching applications to join only my bb Messenger, messages, browser or telephone.  I don't have a home screen.    I've updated the software for this phone too and nothing... I also scanned the two phones for virus and came up with nothing... Please help me I have now two phones useless!

    WHOOOO HOOOOOO what I did!  Thanks for all your support... used the original bb did all updates etc out of the web... sync was using ASCII - rasthaus the new phone and one a path of folder to design and voila it worked!

  • BlackBerry Smartphones icons disappeared and the menu won't pull up.

    OK, so I have a 8310.  I left my phone in the car for a few days (maybe something could have been by pressing one of the buttons while he sat there?) and when I picked it up, all my icons had been activated around and nothing was located where it was when I used the latter.  Everything worked fine, just all of the application and the homescreen icons were all scrambled to the top.

    This is the case, a * beep *, I decided to try to move the icons and put them back where they belonged.  I was able to highlite an icon and move it, but when I tried to finish the move sit icon where I wanted, the icon would be to just move with the trackball and has refused to sit in one place and stay there.

    Then I get a call on my phone and everthing is now the country of Wonderland with Alice and the White Rabbit!  All my icons have left the home screen, and I can't pull up the menu screen.  The trackball seems to work very well.  The blackberry icon button (between the button ' to call ' green and the trackball) seems to work (when the screen is black, you can push it and the screen lights up) but when you press it, the menu won't pull up.

    I thought that maybe I hid all the icons somehow?  I'm just confused on this one.  All the information at the top of the screen is still there.  Time, date, signal strength, network and all my message alert icons are visible.  I use the image as background is under the eyes, just all the icons disappeared and I can still shoot to the top of the menu to fix.

    1. press the Menu key and click SHOW EVERYTHING, as well as show that everything is checked.

    Now look around and see if you the icons. If this menu button still does not work...

    2 perform a reboot of the device: with the BlackBerry device powered on, remove the battery a few seconds and then reinsert the battery to restart.

    A little luck?

    3. If still nothing, try to go to the Options icon if you can find and choose themes and change the themes... now all the icons?

    If you can't find the Options icon, press the green line to enter the call log.

    Press the Menu key > Options > General and make Options scroll down with a line to the home screen and the value to no.

    Now, go back to the home screen of the BlackBerry and press O (oh), alpha to zero. Who will pull up in your Options menu now

  • Missing battery icon. Quite simply, it isn't here.

    I have a HP Compaq Presario F765EA under Vista Home Premium laptop. I used this laptop very happy for 10 months, but recently, the battery in the notification area icon disappeared. I put my computer in hibernation, started rising again and when I looked, it wasn't there. Naturally, I click on it, click on properties then the Notification area tab, but when I looked at the power box was the one who was gray. the problem occurred shortly before, but a few quick reboots sorted. But I rebooted about three times since then, nothing helps. I recently connected to 2 different networks, not at the same time, but soon enough. Also, but it's probably not related, I alo connected to 2 different secondary screens in quick succession too.

    If anyone else is having this problem, he has had in the past or had an experience that allows them to know the cause and the solution of the problem, simply reply with this knowledge.

    Thank you
