we have to face it, the microphone feature is not working on XP. i've tried to install it a millionth times, no go. it's working very well on vista. if you want, you can just try to do dual boot. both XP and Vista in one system. just a suggestion though...

Hope this helps!

go to your device manager and try reinstalling the driver for it---also check your audio drivers, I've had situations where I had an optical mouse that was also a skype phone, it also had a mic and speaker in it, so when I was using that mouse, my internal speakers wouldn't work because ,y computer confused my mouse phone with speakers. What I mean is there may be another device interfering with your mic.

Press Fn + Num Lock/Lk
If the above doesn't, it means your keyboard is defective and needs to be replaced. To confirm this, connect an external usb keyboard to your computer and if it works, then of a truth, your keyboard needs to be replace.

Good luck.

well looks like its a no video issue
connect a external monitor to it and toggle the video over to see if you get an image to show on the external monitor.To Toggle video FN and the F4 key together to send the image to the external. if it works then you have a bad LCD screen or lcd cable. If it doesn't then it could be something else

There are different types of electronics recycling companies, and some electronics that won't be accepted. If you could list the devices you have for recycling, I could give you a list of recyclers and the devices that won't be accepted. Keep in mind that some of these recyclers require you to get the devices to them, so it will be out of your pocket, but some have you send it COD, so it's out of theirs.

Win XP and Vista and Win 7 will have the proper drivers for an external projector. Just plug in the projector BEFORE you start the laptop and the drivers should get installed automatically and video should go to the projector (but not the laptop). You may need to adjust the resolution for best image. Once it's running, you can "toggle" from external to internal screen using one of your function keys. It usually has symbols like small TVs on it.
