The keyboard has a feature (and associated button) called F-Lock. By
default, when the computer boots, F-Lock is turned on. In the F-Lock
mode, rather than sending the standard key commands for the function
keys, the keyboard sends special alternate commands (like print for F7 and save
for F8) that are configured in the iTouch program. In order to force
the keyboard to send the standard function key commands, you must TURN
OFF F-Lock by pressing the F-Lock button! Oh, and by the way, there are
no indicator lights on the keyboard, and the F-Lock button is an always
up momentary button - just like the keys on the keyboard, so there is
no way to tell what state it is in, other than by pressing it and then
pressing an F key to see what happens!
This should solve your problem. Just turn off the F-Lock Mode. Hope this helps if it does please leave a comment or a vote. Thanks JHH

This sounds like the monitor is not reading a signal from the computer. I had the same problem when I installed a DIV cable from my old VGA cable. The video card was still sending the signal via VGA port instead of the DVI port of my video card. You should cheack the cable to you're computer and what port is being used. If everything is hooked up correctly then there might be a problem with the cable. Other then that it could be you're video card. If the hard drive is running and everything is running fine then what I said should be whats wrong. If nothing works go back to the shope and tell them the new problem you have.
