SOURCE: Screen cracked and cannot taggle to seperate screen

Carefully examine the keyboard. These do vary from model to model but one key will have a screen symbol in another colour[blue perhaps] this will mean pressing another key to get the blue function The key to press may also have a blue element. Also get onto the Sony Technical Support team

Right click on the desktop and you should get a drop down box that includes Graphics Options. In there you can change the Rotation for your display.

SOURCE: letter keys are stuck on numbers don't know how to change them bo

Hold the "Fn" key down while pressing "F9" key, subtitled "Padlock" (!!) - is equivalent to NUM LOCK nomenclature used on most computers. Note - Repeating above resets number pad to ON.

If that doesn't work for you something is malfunctioning as far as I know.

SOURCE: cat sat on laptop changed screen

There is a master function key that you hold down while tapping another function located on the keyboard. This all depends on the model of laptop. Next time try to giva a little more info like make and model, which is located on the bottom. The function key or Fn key is usually located on the keyboard near the Alt and Control key lower left. while holding this key down, you tap the corresponding brightness key on the number of the keyboard, some times the brightness is on the 4 arrows on the right side of the keyboard...sometimes they are the numbers 6 or 7 look for what appears to be a symbol that looks like the sun or a light. Hold down Fn and tap the key that brightens the display.

My screen keeps flashing" diagnosing your PC" why


There is a problem with your windows 8 PC's installation, which has stopped it from booting correctly; hence why it starts in 'startup repair', and tries to diagnose your PC. Hold the F8 key while booting your computer to go into the startup menu for Windows; click Advanced startup options; and select Restore my PC; which will reinstall windows.
This may or may not work for your machine, you may have to hold F2, F10, or the Escape key to go into the UEFI setup and go into startup options from there.

My cat stepped on the keyboard and the screen went black, I don ot know what keys she pressed


try rebooting the computer and as soon as it begins to start up (before the windows screen shows) tap repeatedly on the "F8" key on the top of your keyboard. when a boot menu appears choose "safe mode" when the computer loads you will have the window default settings and you should see your screen. If this works simply reboot the computer and it will load to normal mode. If this does not work let me know and I will attempt to help you further

Gateway MT6707 Laptop...Will not boot. I get an error at start up to "fix problems or Start Windows Normally........I have tried both. Just gets to the screen That shows Gateway and Please...


You need to launch the Last know good configuration to get this fixed.

Follow the steps below,

Step 1: Shut down your PC completely.
Step 2: Turn on the Power button.
Step 3: As soon as you turn it on start hitting the F8 key on your keyboard until you get to a black screen called "Windows Advanced option". (If you don't get to that that screen but you end up reaching the blue screen than that means you have delayed in hitting the F8 key. start again from step 1.)
Step 4: As soon as you reach "Windows Advanced option" use your down arrow keys to choose an option called "Last know good configuration".
Step 5: Select that and HIT ENTER.
Step 6: your PC will boot to the windows.

Black Gateway screen Help


I had a problem starting up from the black screen. I went the route of restoring the laptop not know of a possible "common" problem. The following is what I used for my system restore to get my laptop running, perhaps by following the steps to change the bios it might also fix your problem. If anything it doesn't hurt to try at this point.

URL: http://forums.techguy.org/hardware/582490-freezing-during-full-system-restore.html

do these steps to disable SpeedStep in the BIOS Setup Utility and then run System Restore again on your computer.
1. Turn on the computer and begin pressing the F2 key in one-second intervals. If you perform this step correctly, you see the BIOS Setup Utility menu. If Windows loads normally, repeat this step.

2. In the BIOS Setup Utility, press the RIGHT ARROW key to select the Advanced menu.

3. On the Advanced menu, change the Intel SpeedStep setting from Enabled to Disabled.

4. Press the RIGHT ARROW key to select the Exit menu.

5. On the Exit menu, select Save Changes and Exit

6. Restart the computer and run System Restore.

7. After completing the restore, download and install the Critical Update for Windows XP (KB885626) package from the Microsoft Web site.

8. Once the KB885626 package is installed, re-enable Intel SpeedStep in the BIOS Setup Utility.

My cat sat on the keyboard of my HP Pavillion DV6 notebook and now the keys must be held in until the letter or symbol comes up on the screen which takes a few seconds per key i touch. I need help...


This might sound radical but I had this problem only it involved a dog playing kick the laptop and then sitting on the keyboard. I simply went to the control panel > device manager > scroll down to the keyboard and right click and choose unistall. Make sure that when you reboot, you have internet access so that if the laptop needs it can search windows update if it needs to install a new driver. The computer will read the new hardware and install a driver for it, this essentially resets all the default settings. The only other place I know of that has keyboard settings besides the Fn + key combos is the Language and Regional settings in the control Panel. I believe if you uninstall the keyboard and then reboot, all the settings should fall back to the default settings for a newly installed piece of hardware.
