    A few days ago, the left half of my notification bar became blocked. Or something. Battery Monitor and Calendar in Notification Bar disappeared. All that was left was arrow with a minus in the middle (it looks like the backspace key on the keyboard, except that it contains a minus instead of an x). I've uninstalled and reinstalled both apps, but the reinstalled icons don't show either.

    I've now spent several hours trying to figure this out. Nada. Please, someone, help me figure this out.

    Thanks,
    Sandra

    No no... there's nothing "wrong" you just turned off notifications... lol

    Goto the pull down menu and scroll left/right thru the icons at the top of that scroll down menu and you will see a toggle for notifications. You must of hit it by accident.

    Sorry I didn't know that! I don't think the US version has this. I tried and I didn't find it. I know he has the international version. Sorry for my misinformation!

    Crester: Thank you! It took me a few minutes to understand your instructions--and then I realized that you meant that scrolling toolbar thing along the top of the pull-down screen. A second later, success! Thank you again.

    As for pulling the battery and then resetting, that's a draconion reaction to a minor glitch. That kind of solution reminds me of the early days of Windows, when the first level tech support would make two simple, futile suggestions (make sure your computer is plugged in and turns on, e.g.) and then told you to reinstall Windows--a week of work.

    And no comments from you Mac fans. That's not the point here.

    Thanks yet again.
