This is my first strange problem I encountered since signing up on this board. I will post screencaps tomorrow. I have been told to look to underneath my battery's compartment to find the COA. Nothing else unusual, except that I was prompted to hit F1 and also my clock reset itself in Windows. What I see here now in the notifications area in the taskbar, is a blank space which appears to be an invisible icon to the left of the date/time. I can tell because the area is able to be highlighted as if it were a normal, visible notification icon, but the notification icon itself is invisible. Also, when I click the "show hidden icons" arrow, there appears to be big white space full of invisible icons too. As I mouse over them, the 'icons' seem to disappear and the area of icons become normal again.
