In the line
<script type='text/javascript' src='awjsmenugold10trial.js'></script>

Is the src attribute pointing the the right place?

You should have another js file.

According to that line of code, the file named 'awjsmenugold10trial.js' should exist in the same directory that this file exists in.

It is impossible to tell what it contains, but it most likely contains the classes and functions associated with your menu bar.

If you'd like to start a-new (since you don't have the file), the drop-down menu I use is at  I do not have any affiliation with the site, I just liked the ease of setup.

Hope this helps.
