Key combinations to rotate screen


Deirdre,

The key combination to rotate the screen back to normal is: Ctrl+Alt+Up Arrow

If you use Ctrl+Alt+Arrow keys - whichever arrow key you press is the direction that the screen should rotate.

Hope that helps!

My compaq notebook presario cq50 210us is frozen on a black screen


Try the laptop on an external monitor, if it works ok on that, the fault lies with the laptop screen
If it does not work on that, the fault is with the graphics chip on the laptop

If it was working ok then suddenly died, check to see if you can boot to safe mode (F8)

repost the results

Compaq Presario laptop C300 - issues (orange light)


Sometimes when a PC gets stuck in hibernation mode, the only way to reset it is to remove the CMOS battery for 10 minutes and replacing it. It resembles a large watch battery and is usually located near the center of the motherboard.

Where is the reset button located on the compaq presario 750us?


There is normally a combination of buttons, not a 'magic button', what if someone pressed it in error?

On a Toshiba, you press F2 and Delete when you power on after first removing and reinstalling the battery. With such a complicated procedure, it can't be done by accident.

Read the manual.

Compaq Presario R3000 dim screen but not dark


Sounds like the auto-dim in the BIOS is set too low. Fortunately the Compaq R3000 allows you to adjust the brightness right from the keyboard. Hold down the [FN] function key while tapping the [F8] key will brighten the screen, while [FN]-[F7] will dim it. The settings are different for running on AC power and battery, so you must do each individually.

Mouse locking/turning off laptop


On your laptops power management settings, you will probably find an advanced tab. In there you should be able to assign the power button to 'Shutdown', as it is probably 'Hibernate' enabled. The mouse problem is probably your laptops touch pad driver, update drivers from Hewlett Packard site if there are any.
