Question about Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Notebook

1 Answer

I lost the floating onscreen function bar

I used to use it to use mouse to make brightness up or down.
I don't know where it went. It was autohide and when I went to top of screen it appeared (sometimes a nuisance).
My F7 when manually pushed gives some message about a carat or something, cannot change brightness easily.

    The solution was to go to Toshiba site and download software, but I have no idea what software to look for. I have not had the time to search the site to try and determine, but I will. thanks.

GO to toshiba and reinstall the software. My guess is it was disabled in msconfig or somehow the software went bad. Reinstalling it should work.

My volume control kept going to the bottom and muting and scrolling pages was impossible. Kept running to the bottom as well so I read and read and tried and tried.

Play with your mouse or replace it.

Page up button not working


Unfortunately it sounds like you're keyboard is malfunctioning and the only permanent fix is to replace the keyboard. In the mean time, since you are unable to do so, I would suggest using the touch pad to manipulate the scroll bar for the faster scrolling. For more control you could use a USB mouse with the laptop which would give you a scroll wheel. (I personally use a Wireless Mouse with my laptop because I find touch pads don't react they way I would like my mouse to use)

Hii, my L6 KM555R lost its Short cut bar at the bottom on the main menu, anyone know how to help, please and Thankss :)


Most times, it's just hidden! :) Move your mouse to the bottom center of the screen- (or to the right center, or left center) and see if it pops up... if it does, control click on the separator bar thing near the trash can, and click "turn autohide off." That should fix it!

How to use the space bar when typing on screen keyboard?


If you are typing with the mouse, just click the space once to give one space after a word or after a letter. There's no other method or no other way to give space without using the space bar of the onscreen keyboard.

From here choose to move your taskbar location to the side of the screen and click apply. it should return, then just tell it to go back to the bottom.

My laptop is Fujitsu Siemens AMILO Pro Celeron. somehow the sound is not coming... i dont know why??? i tried my best to get to know the problem... but nothing seems to be helpful


Hello,

There are four ways to turn sound down or mute it on a laptop.

In the Windows Desktop there is normally an icon of a speaker near the digital clock on the bottom far right. You can rest or click your mouse over this icon and a volume slider pops up onscreen. In this pop up the slider can be turned down or the mute box checked.

A laoptop also has special function keys activated by the Fn key near the left side of the spacebar. This Fn key has letter colors that are different than the rest of the keys. Pressing and holding this Fn key and also using another key activates the Special Functions. Usually pressing Fn +PgUp or PgDn and or End will raise lower or mute the sound in that order. the Pg Up keys, etc. have other lettering on them to indicate the special function. Often this is just and icon.

With these hints you may be able to get your sound back on. If not, tell me how and under what circumstance you lost the sound. It could be a deeper setting in your laptop.

Regards,
Worldvet
