I connected RGB from toshiba m45-s169 to tv. Had a signal but now cant get it back. Tried updating video driver. Help?


You can switch to an external monitor, TV or data projector by two methods. 1. Connect the external monitor to the laptop's video port, power up the external monitor first and the laptop. The video information will automatically switch to the external monitor. 2. If you power up the laptop first then you can switch the video output to the external monitor by pressing the Fn key and one of the Function keys, depending upon your make and model laptop. You can also toggle between the external monitor or both LCD screen plus the external monitor or back to LCD screen only by pressing the Fn key plus one of the function key a few times. Here is a list of key combinations for some of the laptops :- IBM ThinkPad = Fn + F7 HP and Compaq = Fn + F4 Toshiba = Fn + F5 Dell = Fn + F8

How do I turn off wireless radio?


There are a couple of ways to turn off the wireless. 1) Look for a wireless switch on either side of your laptop or at the front of your laptop. 2) Normally the FN (Function Key) + (F1 thru F8) will toggle the wireless between on and off. To find the correct F1 thru F8 key to hit look for the )))) symbol which denotes wireless. Press and hold the FN key then hit the Function key that corresponds to wireless. Watch your desktop screen because most will display Wireless On or Wireless Off as you hit the keys. If not one sure way to know it is off is look at the computer at the bottom right of the screen near the time, it should go from being a solid green to a computer with a red X on it.

When you say oyu cant turn on the wireless switch does that mean after flicking the switch usually located on the front or side of the laptop it sitll doesnt work. or have you tried holding the function key (fn) and hit the wireless symbol key on your keyboard it looks like the letter i with circles around itusually on the f8 key. by holding fn then f8 key it should turn it back on

Acer 4720,when switched on wifi button,the light for wifi is flash and the funcion is worked.But switched off wifi button,the light is still on.How can i switch off the light?


For Windows Based Computers

If the drivers for the wireless adapter contain a setting to toggle wireless radio, it can be located using the

following path: Start > Settings > Control Panel > Right click Wireless Network Connection Icon > Properties >

Configure > Advanced tab

Here you will find a textbox with a list of selectable properties that are populated by the device driver. Once you

select a property there will be a value field with a dropdown box containing configuration options that apply to that

specific property. The name of the wireless radio property may vary because the listed properties are dependent on

each specific device driver. It should be fairly intuitive to determine the correct property if you simply have the user

read all the listed properties to you.

Many laptop manufacturers will place a physical switch on the outside casing of the laptop, so that the user can

easily toggle wireless radio. Sometimes these switches get accidentally turned off, or intentionally turned off and the

end user forgets to switch it back. The best practice in these situations is to ask the user to look for a physical switch

on the case of the laptop, possibly with a symbol of a radio tower next to it. After turning the wireless switch on, the

user will probably need to refresh their network list.

Laptops built by certain manufacturers may have a specific keystroke set up to toggle wireless radio.

Below are some examples of wireless radio software and hardware toggles that we have been able to

document:

Acer (General) - FN,F5

ASUS (General) -The F5R has a toggle switch to turn on and off the WIFI; it is located on the left side of the

notebook

Dell (General) - FN,F2 or FN,F8 or FN,F12
Dell d630 (D6xx?) latitude: toggle switch on the left side towards the front by the PCMCIA slots and headphone

jack

E-machine (General) - FN,F2

Fujitsu (General) - FN,F10

HP/Compaq (General Older models) - Button on upper left on keyboard deck
HP/Compaq (General Newer models) - Button on lower left below keyboard

IBM thinkpad (General) - Most have software switch or button on left hand side.
IBM thinkpad (model not further identified) with wireless switch on front edge of case.

Sony Vaio (General) - switch on front left

Toshiba (General) - FN,F5 or FN,F8 or switch
Toshiba Satelite has a physycal switch on front of case. FN+F8 shows wether wireless communications is

enabled or disabled.

My wireless system on my laptop is off how can I turn it on? No wireless found in range! Make sure your wireless switch is on how can I put the switch on?


Some laptops have a switch in front next to the wireless light or on the side.

Some laptops use an F key (my toshiba is F8) so to turn on the wireless I would have to turn the switch on in front and then "toggle" the Wireless on by pressing the FN and the F8 keys.
