My fn key wont work on toshiba sattelite pro


FN (Function Key) that is usually located near the bottom left on the keyboard is not a key that you press by itself to do anything. The FN key works in combination with the (F1 thru F12) and any other key that has the same symbol or color as the FN Key. You have to Press and HOLD the FN key while pressing another key.

If the FN key is Blue and for example your F8 key has a (white F8 on it and a Blue battery icon on it) then to see your battery metor (how much charge it has left) you would Press the FN and hold it then press the F8 key. The F8 that is white does not require you to press the Blue FN.

Sometimes the FN key might have a white square on it, then the keys that work with the FN key will also have a symbol with a white square around it.

XPS M1210 Laptop turn on but no display


Mke sure your displ;ay is selected, hold down the Fn key and press the F8 key.
Connect a know working monitor to the laptop, again hold down the Fn key while pressing the F8.
If the external monitor works then your display is defective, if not then the onboard video is defective and you will need to replace the mother board.
I hope thisd helps.
Good luck and have a pleasent day.

How do i dim the screen on my hp laptop the fn key does nothing with f7 or f8


well if u press fn key + (f7 or f8). it is suppose to reduce brightness or increase.
But if its not working then check it with service centre.
In between you can try an alternate option, if u r using win7 or vista then, look for battery sign near timer. click for more power options. in there u will see adjust brightness!

I'm having an IBM notebook in the house, when u turn on power nothing comes on the screen...? what should i do


Does your sound work? If so there is a button on your keypad that allows you to toggle your screen source back and fourth between Projector/monitor and laptop. The icon looks like a monitor and usually you will have to hit your "FN" (Function) key along with pressing the monitor key. On most laptops it is F8 - so you will need to press and hold the FN key and press the F8 (or key with the picture of the monitor) and toggle through until you get your screen back.

Good Luck and feel free to rate me..

Happy Holidays..

My laptop model is Aspire Acer 4720z. It doesn't have a sound unless you attach headphones or an external speaker


If you press the FN key + F8 key they are the ones that toggles the speakers on and off. There is nothing wrong with your speakers.

I can turn my laptop on but the screen is black


Hi,


Do you hear a beeping sound when turning it on? Try connecting an external monitor (Desktop monitor) then press FN+F8 (Dell laptop only) and FN+F4 (HP laptop only). If it works on an external monitor, you may need to contact your computer manufacturer. check the warranty and request for an LCD monitor replacement.

If you hear a beeping sound when turning on your laptop or no power (no light). you may need to reseat the memory (RAM) or check the AC adapter (power adapter).

Let me also know the system model and computer manufacturer.

Keep me posted.

Thanks.
