Press the FN +F5 or FN+F6 combinations a couple of times each. A laptop has three types of displays and they are controlled with the FN key.

Clutch is stillon shaft .how do i remove the clutch from the shaft? by pulley or douse it unscrew?

Hi Please dont be offended but have you removed the Clutch Cover usually held on by 8 / 10 bolts, if you have the Clutch Friction Plate should just Slide off the Splined Shaft, Depending on the model The Shaft is sometimes Removed before the Clutch, ie depending if the Engine is inline or Transverse.

Good Luck
