Mine brings up my scanner for some reason.
The printer does have different options shown.

You might give Option One a try here: Icon Cache - Rebuild
I'll give that a try, thanks

I ran the batch file in option one and rebooted, didn't change the icon or anything. It's still got the generic laptop icon with TOSHIBA listed as the model number, and 'Danube' when I right click and look at the computer model in the properties? :/

More or less, it didn't work

Give this a try if you haven't, then run Updates again.
Make Windows download latest Drivers & Icons for Devices automatically

It was already set to automatically get the icons, but no new updates were found

That's OK I might just have to deal with it until I get a new computer :/

I think you answered yourself in post #1 as I am using two Toshiba laptops and three self built desktops and the laptops are using different hard drives to what the come with and have OEM's on them I think you might find it comes with the Toshiba bloatware that is now gone. Using the retail would give the same effect I reckon.

In my pic of my Ivy Bridge you will see a yellow triangle which when I click on to "fix" just tells me to download the machines drivers. So therefore I think that is what is happening the bloat held your previous pic of the machine, and as I said the fact that you have reloaded with a new drive and Windows it isn't being recognised as a machine with a fancy name. .

But I stand to be corrected of course.

Just because you are missing an icon is no reason for a new PC. does it have other problems? If so you can post a new thread about it.

My PC shows the same icon as ICit2lol's, which is a server but the machines both work fine.
