Why doesn't my print screen button work?


Hi

The PrtSc (Print Screen) key when pressed will seem to do nothing but it does when you hit the key it puts a copy of your current screen to the clipboard.

To prove this do as below

1 press the Prtsc button on your desktop
2 Load paint and choose new
3 go to the paste option or press CTRL+V and you should get a copy of your desktop in paint.

Reset asus eee top to factory setting


Open the display on your Asus and click the "Shut down" tab in the lower-right corner of the desktop.
Click "Yes" when prompted, to confirm.

Power on your laptop, and press the "F9" key when you see the logo screen.
A menu will pop up with a list of three options.
Select the "Restore Factory Settings" option (which is the last one in the menu).

Select "Yes" when prompted, then hit the "Enter" key to confirm the reboot.

Wait about 30 seconds for the system to restart, then agree to the licensing agreement when prompted.

Confirm your name, password and time and date when prompted.
Then wait as your computer configures.

hope this helps

What do you do when your lap top screen goes black? How do I fix it? I turn it on and it just has a black screen.


Hi Plug an external screen into the latop. You usually have to press and hold the Fn key ( bottom left keyboard ) and then one of the Function keys, F7 or F8, look at the symbols, to give the external screen a signal. If this works then your laptop screen itself is faulty. Most makes can be replaced for £120-00, contact me if you want this done regards Bruce

When I boot up with windows recovery cd in drive and press F12, press any key instructions come up. boot does not respond to any key I press. If I let it continue to sign in screen, register windows...


your keyboard is not connected properly, because boot should response when you press any key, check the connections of keyboard or replace with correct one.
as far the massage concern, it shows the windows gone corrupt re-installation is recommended.

My mouse pad on my lap top has stopped working and i cant figure out why. any ideas or suggestions to try?


You may have turned off the touchpad by mistake. look at your F keys for a sign that looks like a finger on a square. Often F7.

e.g. on an Acer Travelmate you would hold the Fn. key and tap the F7 key to turn on and off the Touchpad.

My hard drive got damged and has bean replaced with a new one, I cant get operating system to work more than 30 days. I have installed vista using a reboot disk that came with lap top. The lap top worked...


I AM CURENTLY AWITING ANOTHER REBOOT DISK AS THE MANUFACTUERS OF THE LAP TOP SAID IT MIGHT NEAD THE FULL INSTAL OF VISTA HOME BASIC AND NOT JUST THE REBBOT PROGRAM VERSION I GOT WITH THE PC. AS THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE THE START UP SETINGS THAT CONFIGS THE BIOS TO USE VISTA. ( I DIDNT UNDERSTAND THIS TILL I ACTURLY GOT INTO THE BIOS) THE NEW DISK WILL ASLO INCLUDE A NEW PRODUCT KEY THAT DOES NOT NEAD TO BE CONFIRMD VIA INTERNET TO USE AS IT IS JUST THE BASIC VISTA PROGRAM THAT SHOLD ALOW ME TO INSTAL MY UTILITIS AND DRIVERS TO INSTAL THE MODEMS AND OTHER SYSTEM FILES. WHEN I ORIGANLY GOT THE LAP TOP IN 2007 THE REBOOT &RECOVERY DISKS ONLY HAD THE SET UP PROGRAMS THIS ALOWS YOU TO INSTAL VISTA OPERATING SYSTEM BUT NOT ALL THE PROGRAMS WILL WORK AS YOU NEAD TO DOWNLOAD THE FULL SYSTEM SETINGS. SO JUST TO LET OTHERS KNOW IF YOU GOT A LAP TOP OR PC THAT ONLY HAD A REBOOT DISK TO CHEK THAT IT IS THE FULL VERSION ( NEW VISTA RECOVERY 2008 ) AND NOT THE 2007 ONE

I WIL LET YOU KNOW HOW I DID IT IF THIS WORKS

THANKS FOR THE OFFER

Need to get into cmos setup on a compaq contura 2860b lap top


When you turn your laptop on, watch the messages that flash at the top and bottom of the screen. There should be a message that says 'press F# (where # is a number between 1 and 12) to enter setup'. You only have a couple seconds to press this F key in order to enter setup, so do it quickly.

Good Luck!
