Question about Computers & Internet

Locked computer Hello. I believe I have accidentally locked my Toshiba Satellite. I've read the owner's manual, pressing Fn +F1, backspace, or moving the mouse do not work. Nothing works. I've even taken the battery out and put back in. I must have accidentally pressed the keys today when I was moving it out of the way to clean off a table. When I moved it back, it was blank, but the power is on. We do not use a password.

If you did the steps according the manual and the computer remain unlocked seem to be a malfunction. Usually the screen blank is caused by the video card, memory or inverter malfunction.

Lost my wi-fi on my toshiba l455


It's common that the switch that enables/disables wifi gets hit accidentally. I believe, on your model, that pressing the Function Key (Fn) and the F8 key simultaneously is the way to turn wifi on and off.

Press f1 f2 continue


For what purpose are you pressing the F1 key. The function keys may have different uses depending on the computer. When combined with the Fn key of a laptop they may also do certain actions. You should read the manual of your laptop to find out about the function keys.

My function keys doesn't work in my laptop toshiba satellite c660-a047


The function key, labeled "Fn" and located in the lower-left corner of your keyboard, is a useful feature. By pressing "Fn" along with one of the numbered function keys at the top of the keyboard (F1 through F12), you can adjust your screen brightness, enable and disable your touchpad or wireless modem, lock your computer and complete a variety of other tasks. These keys will not work if the "Fn" key is not pressed along with them. While the "Fn" key itself does not turn on and off, there are settings that can make it behave differently, or seem to be disabled.

Click "Start," then "All programs" or "Programs," then "Toshiba." Select "Utilities," then "Accessibility." Place a checkmark in the box to make sure the "Fn" key will work whether you press it simultaneously with the F1 through F12 keys or immediately before pressing those keys. Customize the other options on the screen, then click "OK." Test your "Fn" key. One of the easiest ways to do this is by pressing "Fn" and "Esc" at the same time. This toggles the sound on your computer on and off, and will show a speaker icon on your screen if it works. Press "Fn" and "Num lock" at the same time if the "Fn" key still does not work. Use the "F11" key if your laptop has no "Num Lock" key. Test the "Fn" key again, using the same method as in Step 4. Locate a licensed repair technician if the key still is not working. A hardware issue may be at fault. Hope this helps.

I need to know what the keys f1-f12 keys usage.


The uses for the function (f1-f12) keys varies based on which program you have open at the time. Different programs use them for different things.

However, your computer also has some default uses for these keys when combined with pressing the fn (function) key.

fn + f1 locks computer

fn + f2 changes our power use profile

fn + f3 puts the computer to sleep

fn + f4 puts the computer into hibernation mode

fn + f5 changes the display/output mode

fn + f6 decreases the screen brightness

fn + f7 increases the screen brightness

fn + f8 enables/disables wireless connections

fn + f9 enables/disables the touch pad

fn + f10 turns the cursor overlay on/off

fn + f11 turns the numeric overlay on/off

fn + f12 turns scroll lock on/off
