Question about HP Compaq Evo Notebook N600c

Evo N600C screen smaller than whole monitor screen

When typing I accidently hit something and my screen is now small and centered in the middle of the monitor. I've tried all the Fn keys to see if that is what I did and that has not worked, I have also checked the resolution. Is there a combination of keys to hit to resolve this or something?

This is not a resolution problem.

Instead press Fn - T at the same time. This toggles between the normal mode and the 'minimized' mode. I am not sure why you ever want this smaller mode though. My wife accidently did the same thing you did. It took a little while to figure it out since it also affected the screen size even before Windows 'kicked in'.

I hit something on the keyboard that made my monitor go blank


The specially colored "Fn" key is intended to work for extra functionality. Try combining the Fn + Function keys where key symbols vary from system manufacturer so I can't tell how which key will work to re-enable your screen back (try Fn + F7).

How do I turn down brightness on my hp Windows 7 computer?


Hi,

Below are instructions to adjust brightness on HP laptop

    • Press the "Fn" key with the computer turned on and hold the key.

    • Press the "F7" or "F8" key on some HP laptops, which are printed with a small sun icon on the key. The sun icon is filled on the function key for dimming the laptop. The other key is printed with a hollow sun icon for brightening the screen.

    • Press the "Fn" and left arrow keys together on some HP laptops to turn down the brightness. The "Fn" and right arrow key will increase brightness. Press and release the right arrow key repeatedly, while holding down "Fn," to decrease the screen brightness slowly, or hold the keys to darken the screen as low as the setting will go.

  1. For HP Monitors

    • Press and hold the down arrow key on the front panel of the monitor below the screen to turn down the brightness on the external monitor to the lowest setting.


    • Repeatedly press the down arrow button to dim the monitor gradually.


    • Press the up arrow key on the monitor to increase brightness.

Rahul

Laptop broken screen... plugged in Dell monitor,still doesnt work


You can switch to an external monitor 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. 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

Have a Gateway Notebook KAV-60 with a broken screen. Trying to connect to an external monitor without any prompts or commands, as I can't see the screen. With an Acer Netbook I just plugged in the


Make sure the vga cable is in tight on the kav-60 and the external monitor.

Try the keystrokes to toggle the display. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN function key located at the lower left on the keyboard then hit the key F1 thru F12 that toggles the display. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit will have LCD/CRT on it or it will have the icon of a display. The display toggles in three stages ( laptop only, external only or both laptop and external).

Typing becomes difficult as the screen flashes


Sounds like your screen might be going bad. I could be that your lcd cables on the back of the screen might be loose or need to be reseated. You'll have to take the screen apart to get to it.

Try attaching an external monitor to the laptop to see if it really is the lcd screen or the video card inside the computer. Plug in an external monitor and see if thedisplay shows up on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crtmonitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vgaport. If so that proves your video card is ok. The video will showon most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systemswill require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold downthe FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thruF12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will havethe icon of a display.

On laptops both the laptop LCD screen and the external video port can be toggled to show laptop LCD, external vodeo and bothe laptop LCD and external video.
You need to press and hold down the Fn key and one of the function keys that has the monitor symbol, repeated pressing this function key will toggle the video outputs.
I cannot advise you which function key works with your laptop as they vary between different laptop manufacturers.

My screen on my laptop is broken. Can i plug a monitor into my laptop?


1) connect your external monitor to the laptop and then switch the monitor on
2) boot up the laptop
3) after it has successfully booted, you need to identify which function key toggles the external monitor on/off
4) you should be able to do this by holding down the Fn key and trying each of the F keys in turn, waiting a few seconds after pressing each one
5) begin by holding down "Fn" + "F3", "Fn" + "F4", "Fn" + "F5" etc.

If this doesn't work, it may be worth examining all the keys and look for a small monitor symbol on one of the keys. If you find this symbol, hold down the Fn key and then hit the corresponding key with the monitor symbol.

Ibm thinkpad T-40 screen blackout intermittant


There is a toggle key that switches your monitor from on to projecter to dual monitors. If this key gets pressed accidently then the screen will to black. Try hitting the FN +F5 or FN+F6 keys at the same time. Push the keys down three of four times each. The sleep mode would change back to active mode if you re-booted your system.

Black screen


If it's a lap yes you do have a back light but that isn't necessarily the problem. Laps have fn (function) keys that you may have hit accidentally. Look at your keyboard for any keys that may look like they have something to do with the brightness which you would hit the fn key first then the brightness key. You could also try to boot to the bios screen and "set defaults". It's also possible you've turned on the fn key to use an alternate monitor. You may be able to boot into safe mode and bypass any changed settings should this be the situation.
If nothing helps shine a light on your monitor if its an lcd and it it's the backlight you will still be able to see a screen just not lite up.
