Question about Lenovo Computers & Internet

Open Question

I have a ThinkCentre Lenovo EDGE 71. To use the f1-f12 functions require me to first hit the FN button. How do I reverse this so that i can use f1-f12 by hitting them directly and have the current commands require me to hit FN first.

SOURCE: boot up and time/date/year issues

You are correct. There is a 3 volt battery on the motherboard. It may have come loos. This little battery holds all bios setting including the date & time. With the power cord unpluged from the Pc. Remove the side panel exposing the motherboard. Use your manual to help locate the battery. With the help of a flat tip screw driver remove the battery if not already removed & check it's voltage with a volt meter. Replace the battery, it snapes in.
With the side case off double check all power cables & data cables are connected tightly. Restart the Pc & enter the bios. Reset the time & date. As for the power strip & Pc starting. Try this. As soon as you turn on the power strip, switch the power supply's toggle switch to off. Loacated on the back of the power supply. Leave the power strip on. Give the Pc a minute. Now flip the toggle switch on the power supply to on. If the Pc begains to turn on press & hold the Pc's start button till the Pc shuts off.
Now turn off the power strip. Turn it back on. Pc should still be off. This is a reset for the PSU. Post back if you have more questions.

SOURCE: How do I find the functions for F1 -F12 buttons

Those functions are not set by the operating system or the keyboard, they are set by individual software programs and could have a different function for each program. Typically F1 is help and F5 is refresh.

Your problem is hardware-related. Either memory or power supply.

Remove the memory and add back one at-a-time and boot to see which one (if any / either) is bad.

If not, the second culprit is the power supply, which would need to be replaced.

Hope this helps.

C772tu s-video tv out no output


I assume you are going from the laptop to the TV using a s-video connection. Take the tv remote and click Select Input. Change the input source to S-Video. Reboot the laptop.

Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

(Fn) key function


Hi,

Fn or Function key is used for your F1 up to F12 keys. Ex. Fn+F5 is to turn on the wireless capability. Fn key is like a shortcut for the functionality of the machine. You can also adjust brightness by pressing Fn+Up or Down arrow and for the Volume Fn+Left and Right arrow.

I have a dell inspiron 1564. To use the f1-f12 functions require me to first hit the FN button. How do I reverse this so that i can use f1-f12 by hitting them directly and have the current commands...


You can change it so you don't have to use the FN key by going into the settings while you computer is booting.

Reboot your computer
Keep hitting F2 until a greay and blue settings screen comes up
Choose the Advanced menu
Use your arrow keys to go down and select 'Function Key Behavior'
Hit enter
Select 'Function Key First'
Hit enter
Choose to Save and Exit (usually F10)

Should fix it up.
