Hi,

You can press and hold CTRL and ALT while pressing the down arrow key to rotate the display, if that doesn't work right click on an empty space on the Desktop and select Screen Resolution from there change the Orientation from Landscape (flipped) to Landscape.

SOURCE: RE:Dell inspiron 6400 problem in switching on

in that case, Try boting in safe mode by tapping F8 key as soon as u see Dell and it will give u advance boot option, when u get that , select Safe mode, and if you are able to boot to desktop , Go to device manager by Start>right click on MY COMPUTER>manage > on right Device manager.
Check under Display Adapter and uninstall whatever is under it, by making a right click on it and uninstall , 
But in case you are not able to see Desktop in safe mode aswell,  Only option is to do OSRI.
As your screen is fine as you can see Dell.
Hope this will work
Cheers!!!!

Key disabled message


The Down Arrow and the View buttons are disabled on the T6050 as default because reverse paper feeding is not recommended on the T6050 printer because they only have one pair of tractors which are mounted above the platen. If the printer tries to reverse feed paper, it could cause a paper jam unless the platen gap is open sufficiently to allow the paper to feed down through the gap unhindered.
You can enable reverse paper feeding if you are sure that a paper jam will not occur. This is done as follows. Set the printer to Offline. Press the Mode key: display will show Offline Normal. Press any Arrow key until display shows Offline Oper. Press the Forms/1 key. Press any Arrow key until display shows Oper Forms. Press the CPI/2 key. Press any Arrow key until display shows Forms RevPap. Press the LPI/3 key. Press any Arrow key until display shows RevPap Enabled. Press the Enter key and reverse feeding will be set. Set the printer to Online. Once the reverse paper function has been enabled this option will need to be saved to prevent the setting being lost when the printer is powered off. To save the Menu Configuration; Put the printer OFFLINE Press the MODE button, then press the DOWN ARROW until CONFIG is displayed Press FORMS/1, then press the DOWN ARROW until PRINTER is displayed Press CPI/2, then press the DOWN ARROW until SAVE is displayed Press LPI/3, and with POWERUP shown in the display, press ENTER.

I dialed ##8378<SEND>, then clicked


Typing ##8378 Send brings up the phone test screen. When you select #2 (Field Test) and then select OEM monitor and select "enable" the phone resets and enters test mode.
In test mode you can press the volume up button to bring up the test menu. You can navigate this menu using the 1 and 3 keys on the number pad.
The most notable screen in test mode is found by pressing 3 until you reach SHDR protocol monitor will bring up the screen that displays real time reception and transmission information.
Other screens display other system information, but I caution against "playing around" with these menus too much.
To temporarily hide the test mode screen you can press the volume keys again. To take the phone out of test mode completely follow these steps:
1. dial ##test or ##8378 and press send 2. select 2 (field test) 3. scroll down to and select 10 (OEM monitor) 4. scroll down and select Monitor DISABLE 5. the phone will reset and return to normal mode.

I need an explanation as to the secondary function of the keys on my NB305. Mainly the top row of 'F' keys, but the remainder of the keyboard as well. What do all these little symbols on the keys mean?


F1 through F12 are called function keys because they execute programmed functions when pressed. Used in combination with the Fn key, keys marked with icons execute specific functions on the computer. The function executed by individual keys depends on the software you are using.





1. Sound Mute: Pressing Fn + ESC in a windows environment turns sound on or off. Press Fn + Enter to simulate Enter or the enhanced keyboard's numeric keypad. 2. Instant security: Press Fn + F1 to blank the screen to prevent others from accessing your data. To restore the screen and original setting, press any key or press the Touch Pad. 3. Power save mode: Pressing Fn + F2 changes the power save mode. 4. Standby: When you press Fn + F3, the computer enters Standby. 5. Hibernation: When you press Fn + F4, the computer enters Hibernation. 6. Display selection: Press Fn + F5 to change the active display device. Hold down Fn and press F5 again to change the device. 7. Internal LCD screen Brightness: Pressing Fn + F6 decreases the display brightness in decrements. 8. Internal LCD screen Brightness: Pressing Fn + F7 increases the display brightness in increments. 9. Wireless setting: If your computer has both Bluetooth and Wireless LAN functions, you can press Fn + F8 to select which type of wireless communication you want to use. 10. Touch Pad: Pressing Fn + F9 in a windows environment enables or disables the Touch Pad function. 11. Press Fn + F10 or Fn + F11 to access the integrated keypad. When activated, the keys with gray markings on the bottom edge become numeric keypad keys (Fn + F11) or cursor control keys (Fn + F10). The power on default for both settings is off. Press Fn + F12 (ScrLock) to lock the cursor on a specific line. The power on default is off. 12. TOSHIBA Zooming Utility (reduce): To reduce the icon size on the desktop or the application window, press the 1 key while holding down the Fn key. (13. TOSHIBA Zooming Utility (enlarge): To enlarge the icon size on the desktop or the application window, press the 2 key while holding down the Fn key.
