If you've broken a key off the keyboard, you normally replace the keyboard

Gateway laptop computer screen is upside down and can not use mouse


Shortcut Key To Flip The Screen In the Windows TO 180 Degree..
The shortcut is (or should be, read below**)
for normal windows : Ctrl + Alt + <Up arrow> (or shift+alt+<up arrow>)
and for 180 deg it is : Ctrl + Alt + <Down arrow> (or shift+alt+<down arrow>)
However, you should know that these are default shortcuts for
Intel Extreme Graphics Controller, and you can change them. To
check / change or disable these keys go to control panel->Intel Extreme Graphics->Hot Keys.
**sometimes the shortcuts do not work. This happens when you have not enabled rotation
feature in Display Settings under Intel Graphics Media Accelerator media. You need to
enable rotation in order to be able to Rotate / Flip your windows screen upside down / 90 / 180 / 270 degrees.

Mouse: with mouse, do you mean a usb mouse or the mousepad? if the mousepad isnt working, check ur "F" keys for an icon that looks like a mousepad icon. Then press the "Fn" key + the corresponding mousepad icon key and see if it works.

I ve just clicked a button and the screen turned upside down!! what should i do to get it back to normal view??


This actually happen alot, and its very tricky but simple to fix.
Here is a full list of keys that someone on another website sent me for
screen orientation problems, in case it's ever useful.

"Ctrl-Alt-Up - right side up

Ctrl-Alt-Right - 90 degrees

Ctrl-Alt-Down - 180 degrees

Ctrl-Alt-Left - 270 degrees

If these don't work you'll have to do it manually,
There is an icon at the bottom of the screen (now maybe the top) for your graphics properties. Right Click it

Select--->Graphics Options--->Rotation---> and make sure "normal" is checked
It will be weird with the screen inverted but give it a go.

Hope this helps

I want to flip my toshiba laptop upside down and nothing works


You question does not make sense.
If you mean you want to change the display image then -

An upside down image - this is caused by unintentionalpressing Ctrl-Alt plus the down arrow key. Restore by pressing Ctrl-Alt plus the up arrow key. ALSO To change the display from portrait to landscape Press Ctrl-Alt plus a left or right arrow key.

My sound is not working. When i check it shows that "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)". I tried by re-installing Real-tec...


Hi,

You can reinstall the sound drivers from the Acer recovery management, to do so:

Start Menu> All Programs> Acer erecovery management> Restore> Restore Application
& Drivers> Contents> Select Realtek and install it

OR

Got to http://gd.panam.acer.com/home/

Select the computer model
Select Operating System installed on your computer
Click Drivers
Select Audio (Realtek) and download it.
Once downloaded, install it on your computer.

And if the issue persists,
then it appears that some of the the Windows files are corrupted on your computer, you can restore the computer back to factory default,to do so, follow the below steps: Turn OFF the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key & keep on tapping "F10" key, i.e Alt+f10, it will open the recovery console, select full factory restore and follow onscreen instruction.

NOTE: This will erase all the data on the computer.


Thanks and regards,
Jitha

Hi The ''N'' key has flipped dout of my keyboard and I cannot get it back ,,,I fear the key attachemt is broken. Is there anyway of fixing or finding a replacent key?


A fiddly job to do but is possible. The key that has come off will have a clip attachment underneath, you need to remove it and fit it to the clips on the keyboard first. It will be in an X configuration so you need 2 very small screwdrivers (jewellers ones work well) to lift the "X" once connected to the keyboard and connect to one side of the key button.Once done on one side remove the screwdrivers and press down on the key button to click the other side in place.

I can't think of a better way to describe it. One of those " easy if you know how" things.

NTLDR is missing


It means the the NT loader file is missing or corrupted. You need to repair/reinstall your OS.

Pity you didn't state the OS used.

Cant get the at button to work even by pressing shift or not,every other key function works.


You may have a bad key, or a key with something under it.
Try this:

Turn the netbook upside down so that the keysj face the floor.
Bang on the back side that way you would to burp a baby.
Then, take a vacuum cleaner and **** out the spaces between the keys.
If this doesn't work, you may have to make an @ symbol manually by using the ALT key. (ALT plus 64). This should work in most Word Processing programs.
  1. Make certain that the Num Lock key has been pressed to activate the numeric key section of the keyboard.
  2. Depress the Alt key.
  3. While the Alt key is depressed, type the proper sequence of numbers (on the numeric keypad) of the ALT code from the table above.
  4. Release the Alt key, and the character will appear.
  5. On a laptop computer, there usually is no numeric keypad. So, instead, depress the Fn (function) key, then the Alt key, then the numerical code sequence. The numbers are on the fronts of certain keyboard keys: M=0, J=1, K=2, L=3, U=4, I=5, O=6, 7=7, 8=8, and 9=9.
