There is likely no problem with the Javascript. Right click the image (when viewing the page) and choose the option (like 'properties') that will show you the path to the image. Copy that path (like http://example.com/path/image.jpg) and then go to that URL in your browser.
Now see if that loads. If it does, there is something wrong with the javascript or the format of the HTML page (in a 'big' way, such as not being understood in the right format by the browser), or something else very strange is going on.

Most likely you will find that this image file does not exist. There are several ways to fix this:
1. Confirm that the image files were uploaded to your server. Maybe you forgot or your FTP program for some reason didn't finish uploading the files.
2. Confirm that the paths match in the image on the page and where the file actually exists on the server. When you get an 'X' it's almost always because you're looking for the image in the wrong location.
This means then that "all" you need to do is fix the path. There are two ways to do this:
a) easily, just move the images to the location where the script is looking for them (the current URL you just found).
b) maybe better if you like where you put the images, fix the path to the images in the script. For this read the section "Global menu settings" on the script's documentation page. That explains what to do. You don't need to modify the actual code, just the path to the images.

If you need more help, realize that we can't do anything specific without seeing your page. Link to the page on your site so we can help you find the problem. If you can't do this, there's nothing we can do.
