I suspect this is a message you're seeing on a notebook, computer or other device that has a keyboard. The "Fn" key is the "Function" key. When the "Fn" key pressed at the same time another key is pressed - in this case the F4 key, a different result will occur when compared to pressing the F4 alone. This works the same way as when you use the SHIFT key and a letter key - instead of a lower case letter, you get an upper case letter.

Typically, the keys on the keyboard are labeled in a light color. Keys that have a second purpose or function, will have a second label printed in a different color / slight smaller text or both. This label may be text or an icon or graphic. In order to invoke the second function of the F4 key, you will need to inspect the keyboard for the key that has is labeled with "Fn" text on it. Here's what a typical "Fn" key looks like:

The Fn key is in the lower left corner of this keyboard.

I hope this answered your quiestion and good luck!

SOURCE: my acer lap top will not recanize the projector when i press the fn plus thef8 keys

Hi, Try lowering your laptop's resolution (Display Properties) to 1024x768 (or even lower like 800x600), before fn + F8. You can also try lowering the Monitor's screen refresh rate (60Hx). Another setting you can check is Advanced Settings tab or button and check settings for projector (instead of TV). If it works in the lower settings, you can try moving the settings higher until it quits again. If the above does not fix your problem, you may need to re-install your graphics/video driver. Hope this gives you an idea. Post back should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

Which function key allows to switch to tv


Hi there,
You need to press hold the FN key and press the F4 function key once which toggles the display to the External Display source like the television connected along with the LCD of the Notebook.
If the FN and F4 key combination is pressed again, the display will dissappear from the LCD of the Notebook and remain only on the external source.
If the FN and F4 key combination is pressed third time, the display will be back on the LCD of the Notebook and will not remain on the External display source.
Here are these details in other way :
First time pressing FN + F4    ---> Display on LCD and External display
Second time pressing FN + F4 ---> Display not on LCD but on the External Display
Third time pressing FN + F4 ---> Display back on the LCD and not available on External Display (Normal position).
Below are the details of what the Function keys in your DV1000 Notebook work :
fn + f1 Opens Help and Support Center fn + f2 Opens print options window fn + f3 Opens default Internet browser fn + f4 Switches the image among displays fn + f5 Initiates Standby fn + f6 Initiates QuickLock fn + f7 Decreases screen brightness fn + f8 Increases screen brightness fn + f9 Plays, pauses, or resumes an audio CD or DVD fn + f10 Stops an audio CD or DVD fn + f11 Plays the previous track or chapter on an audio CD or DVD fn + f12 Plays the next track or chapter on an audio CD or DVD fn + esc Displays system information.* (*To clear the system information display, press esc.)
Hope this helps...
