Battery Life and Internet Connection not on Taskbar

Hello,

My taskbar used to show the icon for my batter life and my internet connection... I turned on my laptop today and those icons have disappeared? I can I get them back to show on the taskbar?

  1. Right click on the Start button, click "Properties". Where it says
    "Notification icon", click that tab. On the right click "customize"
    and there should be a list of icons with a button at the bottom that
    says "restore defaults". Click that that and save the changes. Now
    the power checkbox should work!

    Ok, I did everything up until the point of "restore defaults". When I click on "customize", I'm shown a list of icons and the behavior... I clicked on "default settings" (there is not an option for "restore defaults" so I'm assuming this is what you meant) and nothing changed. It's funny though, under the "notification area" tab, there is a header that says "system icons" and you can choose which system icons to always show and the only one checked off is "clock". It also has volume, network and power - the options I want. BUT, it is shaded in gray so I can't even click on it!

    What's going on.... waaah.
  3. To find the check box for this icon right click the taskbar, chose
    Properties, Notification Area tab. Under System Icons select Power.
  4. I don't have the option to select it. It is in the shad of gray where I can't "check" it.
  5. That guide from area51reopened should have worked.

    Are u the administrator? Maybe u are not allowed to do the changes : )

    Can u try the system restore?
