Volume controls problem

One day i left my macbook charging overnight like any other day but it wasn't shut down but i've done it before. I woke up and opened the screen and clicked the volume controls. But increasing the volume would bring up my dashboard, lowering the volume hides all windows and muting displays all the windows i have open. Also the brightning buttons dot do anything at all. I check system preferences, keyboard settings and restored default even though ive never changed anything. Nothing changes. Ive restarted my macbook but still the same problem. I have to manually adjust the volume now and have no idea how to adjust the brightness.

There are options in System Preferences :: Sound for a volume slider in the menu bar and in Displays for the brightness slider. This can get you by but your keys seem to be remapped--check Keyboard & Mouse that your shortcuts are not changed and you are not using them for F1.... (Restore should have fixed that.) -Ken

Why wont my computer turn on macbook air. what do you think?


could be a number of things including the power block faulty, a break in the power lead, the power regulator in the macbook or even it's just plain old dead. if the macbook lights come on when it's plugged in and nothing else happens when you press the power button, odds on it's just dead.

I left my 6month old pb laptop on. Barge overnight a d when I woke up the next morning there was,what currys said,was an internal crack on my screen,could this happen due to overheating,my pc is only...


Wow, what a bummer. I've never heard of a laptop cracking the screen just because it was left on overnight. Did you leave it on with the Lid closed? Even if you did I would think at some point the laptop would go into sleep or hibernation mode to turn itself down to minimal power usage. Can you see where the crack is? I mean can you open your internet browser and where the crack is things are not visible? If so you surely have a crack, but i still can't believe leaving it on caused it. Anyway since curry won't help you get a quote from your local computer shops, or ask curry for a repair quote, then try the guys at http://www.generalsystemsconsulting.com They will repair it and ship it back Fedex or UPS and their price will probably beat any quote including the shipping charge.

I have Xperia X 10 mini from Sony Ericsson. I left it charging overnight as I do every night since I've got it. And today when I woke up, I took the phone and instead of it being fully charged and


Chances are your phone got too hot during the night and overcharged the Lithium Ion battery. If those batteries are exposed to too much heat then they won't have the battery life they used to have. You need to purchase a replacement battery or contact your wireless carrier to see about getting another one.

Will not load up or take charge


Try removing the AC power, removing the battery and then holding down the power button for five seconds. On the MacBook Air, press (left) Shift-Control-Option along with the power button once. Note: You must use the keys on the left side of the MacBook Air keyboard.
If that doesnt work try this:
  1. Shut down the computer.
  2. Locate the following keys on the keyboard: Command, Option, P, and R. You will need to hold these keys down simultaneously in step 4.
  3. Turn on the computer.
  4. Press and hold the Command-Option-P-R keys. You must press this key combination before the gray screen appears.
  5. Hold the keys down until the computer restarts and you hear the startup sound for the second time.
  6. Release the keys.

I have a new Apple Mac Air 13 inch with 128GB memory. Suddenly, the laptop won't turn on at all. It is dead. We charged it overnight to make sure.


I would Preform a SMC reset:

Shut down the computer.

Plug in the MagSafe power adapter to a power source, connecting it to the Mac if its not already connected.

On the built-in keyboard, press the (left side) Shift + Control + Option keys and the power button at the same time.

Release all the keys and the power button at the same time.

Press the power button to turn on the computer.

Your best bet is to reset the System Management Controller;

  2. Plug in the MagSafe power adapter to a power source, connecting it to the Mac if its not already connected.
  3. On the built-in keyboard, press the (left side) Shift-Control-Option keys and the power button at the same time.

My Aiptek keeps coming on then shutting off! It's brand new, I've tried taking the battery out but it still does the same thing


Mine does this if the battery is not charged. Make sure the battery is installed with the contacts lined up (my daughter is a pro at putting the battery in upside down, and it doesn't connect to anything that way!) and charge it up overnight.

If it's still giving you trouble the next day, post back and we'll try something else.

Remove the battery and try the cord again. Complete with the moving it around. It sounds like you have already diagnosed the loose DC plug adaptor, but the battery could have gone terminal.
