I can not change secondary keyboard functions back.


Try the following tips;
1. Press Fn key once, release it and type on a notepad or etc....
2. Press Fn + Numlock (press simultaneous as you press ctrl+c to copy) once and test the type again.
This key combination is to activate and deactivate function key (Fn).

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

How to turn off blue keys for an Compaq mini cq10??


Hi,

if you are refering to the blue letters or alphabets which are present on the keyboard. HP designs keyboard with a billingual layout in some Notebook models.

The HP "Blue" keys are indeed the "French" input keys or other language keys.

How to use the Blue Symbols or keys on a HP Notebook:

We can activate them by pressing Ctrl+fn+right Shift.To deactivate, press Ctrl+fn+right Shift twice, i.e. Ctrl+fn+right Shift then let go off Shift while still holding Ctrl and fn, then press Shift again.

When you press Ctrl+Fn+Right Shift it will switch to the the billigual layout. That means the blue characters become prioritie.

For example, if you are in the billingual layout, when you press shift+6 you will get a '?' but not the '^' sign.

Laptop is on but Monitor is off...was working fine earlier today. Opened back to change memory card. Turned laptop back on and the monitor did not light up. Tried checking cables, turned laptop off and...


connect external Display and check if working.
Circle through main display > Main dsply + extnl Dsply > external Dsply using the appropriate Fn key combination (Fn+F4 on my HP).
If only external dsply is working check every connection you possibly affected or bring to a repair shop.
