You disable shadow and caching in bios at boot ...
at startup you need to hit f10 (modeels may vary)to enter setup(bios)
in bios make required changes save and exit.

Some laptops/computers allow you to revert back to the previous BIOS frimware version (ie undo).
Don't know if this is supported on your laptop.

Mousepad on chromebook wont work

Hello Allen Turney,

If this is a NEW Laptop/notebook immediately take it back.
(trade it for a working one! very EASY especially w/AMAZON).

I wish I knew more about "Chromebook" but there are only two reasons a device on any such laptop/notebook won't work...

- The unit's "driver" (software, device & test... Reload)
- the unit is DEFECTIVE (replace hardware)

unless "DRIVER" does it for you... my attempt to further research "Chromebook" has reveal "CHROMEBOOK" as more of a notion than an actual device...
To go any further you will need to re-post with the "MANUFACTURER" I've already found 5 without trying.


PLEASE repost with full detail (Hardware & Software)
and you will draw out some of our profoundly good volunteers.

Hope this helps.

Cell Phone Keeps Shutting Off
Vibrations on dirty battery contacts could be the cause of this problem. Remove the battery and clean the battery contacts with methylated spirits and the battery contacts in the cell phone.

Our fan keeps turning off in the middle of the night and then immediately back on. This process will repeat all night until you turn it off.

The fan might be set to something called "night mode" (which I have no idea why it's called that because it just keeps me awake). Try changing the mode that the fan is set to. Or, refer to the owners manual.

I switched on my actifry and there was a bang and a smell of burning. I tried again but two more bangs. It was working fine the night before. Where would I be able to get it sorted, please.

For an applicance like this, it's most likely going to need to be returned to the manufacturer or one of their service centres. I can obtain the relevant contact details, but I need to know your location first. There's not much point me giving you the USA number if you're in Australia!

Please post your location and I will to assist further.

I need to convert a four prong into a three prong cord, I have the three prong cord allready, but it's not color coerdinated (sp) what do I do?

Hi, The 3 prong cord should be set up with the ground wire in the middle and the lead wires on the outside. It will hook up that way.
Just make sure you put the middle ground wire on the middle post of the block and the outside wires go on the putside post. It doesn't matter witch side.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Monitor fails to adjust-narrow in the middle

You have to use the OSD (onscreen display) to adjust the vertical height or the horizontal width.
If you have an auto button, try letting it readjust your monitor to the default setting. If this doesn't work, find the geometry setting and adjust the hoizontal or vertical manually to correct the "narrowness".
If this doesn't help, please reply with your monitor make and model number and we'll see if we can sort it out...

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Check the brushes in the motor. They've probably worn down and need replacing.
