As you may see I am connected to the internet but I cannot see the signal bars on the taskbar.
my laptop information:
Toshiba Satelite M645 S4070
Windows 7 Home Premium. 64-bit

I also cannot do a system restore of the check disk error i am seeing.
below is an image of the results:


C:\windows\system32>chkdsk

Hello and welcome to the forum.
Although nothing looks too scary at this point, I would still advise taking steps to make sure I had backups of all of my critical data.
Then I would go ahead and run the native Check Disk Utility.
Launch an elevated command prompt (StartOrb->All Programs->Accessories->Command Prompt, right click it and choose Run As Administrator) and type
chkdsk C: /R
hit enter and answer Yes “Y” when prompted and reboot.
Let it run all five stages. When complete check the log file in Event Viewer for results (Click the StartOrb and type event viewer and hit enter, expand Windows Logs and highlight / select Application, click Action on the menu bar and select Find and type chkdsk and hit enter.
As far as the taskbar wireless indicator in the system tray (notification) area.
You could try running the native System File Checker from an elevated command prompt type
sfc /scannow
And see what that produces.
Additionally if your wireless connection is being managed by some third party software you may want to consider either removing it and letting the windows WLAN AutoConfig service manage it..... or upgrading, updating, repairing or reinstalling the related software.

Hi

Click on the little up arrow on the right end of the task-bar (Show hidden icons) and click Customize and see it it's set to show.
