Most Compaqs have the following to the left of the space bar:

Ctrl - Fn - Win Symbol - Alt

However some have this layout:

Ctrl - Win Symbol - Alt - Fn

If you post the model # we could say for sure.

Thanks for using Fixya.

The far right and left ends of the spacebar do not work. In order to use the spacebar function, the direct middle of the button has to be pushed down.

You need to reposition (clip) the torssion bar under the spacebar key (a steel wire formed in a wide U shape), it is unhooked, call for a professionnal if you'r not sure how to do this as you may brake the plastic hinge if you don't know what you'r dooing...

Cursor stuck

If the mouse cursor is stuck, try looking for the mousepad toggle. Most models of notbooks have one or two ways to toggle the mousepad off. They are generally either a button right above the mousepad or a function key.

Look for a button that has two icons that appear to be mousepads, one with a line through it. If you press it (You might have to hold the Fn key located in the lower left corner if it is a function key), it should toggle the mouse back on if it was disabled in this manner.

If this doesn't fix the issue, try pressing the windows key to see if it pulls up the start menu. If so, try navigating to restart to see if that fixes the problem.

Lastly you can also try navigating to the device manager to see if the mouse drivers are missing etc. To do that press the windows key, navigate over to computer and press the alternate menu (directly left of the right Ctrl key) and choose properties. Use the tab key to navigate to the hardware / device manager tab. Once there look for the mouse driver.

If that doesn't help please post your laptop model, version of windows and any other relevant information you can think of.

Please leave feedback if this was helpful. Thanks.

I want to change the number of rings, from three to four or five.

Pick up the handset.Without turning on the handset,press the function button near the bottom numbers.After you press it,you can cycle through the options with either the directional pad or hitting the function button again.Different makes have different methods.Once you get to ringset,I think the directional pad will change it.Right for more,left for less.Ithink once you select a number and move on it sets for that number.It will tell you what to press to set it if that is not correct.Hit the function button until you exit the system.Good luck!

How do you clear a tab someone preset. when I get to the far right of page and hit return it will on return to a tab. How do I clear all the preset margins or tabs.?? thanks

To clear margins, you have to hit the return button to find the left margin, then hit margin release and back space to move the margin left or spacebar to move to the right, then hit left margin button to set the new position. Right margin now. Hold spacebar down and find right margin position, hit margin rease and either spacebar to the right or backspace to the left to the new margin position then hit right margin button to set the new position. Tabs now. hit the tab key, when it goes to the first set tab, hit the tab clear key, then hit the tab key again, then tab clear again etc.

How do i reset my timex ironman

There are only 4 buttons. One of them will put you into "reset" mode, but which one? Before you guess, here is the trick: you have to hold it for a couple of seconds (you don't want it resetting accidently, right?) Ok, so start with your 1st guess (ok, pick top left) did the display give you any clue that was the lucky button? (ok, the display --the seconds, will not increment, but instead will just flash the same number) You are over the hurdle...if not try another one of those 4 buttons. Once you get the seconds to flash, you now have to somehoe reset whatevaitwas you needed to reset. Which means you need to pick another button...such fun! Pick the bottom right one and look for the hour display to flash (if the light comes on, this is the wrong know that) and once it does you have found the "mode" for resetting the hour. So only a couple of buttons left: pick one to see if it increments the flashing hour hand (if the light comes know what to do) and push it till you like the hour number. Then push the first button that started you on resetting this thingie to let the watch know you are done messin with it.
Now you are set to fix your daughter's watch...or your grand-daughter's watch...You B so smart can fix anything!

Projector operating

Hi there

If the signal is not picking up do the following:

Right click on your desktop and go to Properties - then click on settings and check if your resolution is set right i.e. - a XGA (1024 x768 ) Resolution on PC and Laptop.Or SVGA ( 800x600)

Then click on the advanced settings tab and check if your secondary screen/monitor is attached - needs to be attached.

If this still doesn't work then hold in the Fn ( function ) button - situated on left side of your spacebar and press the button in your F-row of buttons with the 2 screens on it.

This should do the trick

Hi there

Check the following on your laptop.

Right click on your desktop , go to properties and settings - check if your resolution of the PC is the same as that of your Projector. i.e. 800x600 or 1024x768

Also check that your secondary monitor is attached / activated.

If the signal stil won't pick up - hold down the Fn ( function button) left of your spacebar and press in your F-row of buttons the one with 2 screens on it. ( differs from brand and model )

Hope this helps you and good luck with your class tomorrow !

Hi there

If you are using a desktop PC you should check if your secondary screen/monitor is activated by right clicking on your desktop and going to properties - then go to settings and advanced settings.

You'll see a block with two screens in it A & B . Attach the secondary screen.

If you are using a Notebook - do the same as above.

If it doesn't pick up the signal on it's own , hold down the Fn ( function ) button - situated left of your spacebar and in you F-row buttons press the one with the 2 Monitors/Screens on it.

Fn must be held in when pressing the F button - Very Important !

Hope this helps !
