    Hi Folks,

    All of a sudden my Network Icon is missing from my taskbar. I have tried using the fn/f3 keys as the little blue light is also not showing.
    I also have a problem with my Date & Time changing every time I reboot. Yesterday I purchased and installed a new CMOS
    battery and changed my BIOS to the correct Time & Date. I still have had no luck.

    TYIA for any help.

    Click on the "Show hidden icons" up arrow in the Notification Area - Customize... . Is "Network" there? If so, if it is already set to "Show icon and notifications" set it to something else and then change it back.
