SOURCE: there is a delay when pressing the keys on my thinkpad T42

you haven't mentioned how other programs behave. i would suggest it is spyware slowing your computer down or one program that is using up to my cpu usage. hitting control-alt-delete will bring up your task manager... at the bottom it shows cpu and memory usage as a percent.... what are the amounts ?

It was stuck on android loading....?how do i fix it?


Use below method : but it will cos you data which is attached to you tablet internal memory

1. When the phone is powered off, press and hold the Volume Up and the Volume Down keys both at the same time, then press and hold the Power key until a test screen that shows some available options appears, usually takes about 15-20 seconds. When that screen pops up you can let go of the keys.
Press the Volume Down key to navigate down through the options until it highlights FACTORY RESET then press the Power key to select it.
2. Power the phone off all the way, press and hold the Volume Down key and press than release the Power key, still holding the volume down key for about 10-15 seconds. When you see some additional options pop up on the screen you can let go of the keys.
Press the Volume Down key to navigate down through the options until it highlights the reset option; it usually says FACTORY RESET, then press the Power key to make the selection.

How do I screen shot from my hp elitebook if I am running windows vista?


You need to press PrtScr or Print Screen button to capture the screen to the clip board. I believe on your laptop you need to hold the fn key down to select it. On the bottom left of the keyboard is a key that has fn on it. Any key on your keyboard that has a second function will need the fn key to access this second key function. PrtScr button should be on the top row right hand side of the keyboard.

Hold down the fn key and press the PrtScr key and then you can paste it into a document or paint or whatever. The PrintScreen function works in versions of windows I have ever used, from Windows 3.11 for workgroups to Windows 8.

How does one make the screen brighter on a laptop computer


Normally there should be two keys to turn up and turn down the bightness on the top of the keyboard partnered with the F keysLook for a lightbulb symbol, one showing it getting brighter and one dimmer. First press the key a few times and if the screen gets dimmer or brighter you are good to go, but sometimes it might be the second function key, so you will have to look for the key on your keyboard to activate the second function, and normally that key is called the FUNC or FN key, and should have the same color and the second function options. So hit that key, by either pressing it once, or holding it in.

Hello, how can I adjust my screen brightness????


Most laptops have several buttons on the keyboard that can adjust the screen brightness.
1. Find the "Function" key on your keyboard and hold it down. 2. Find the brightness up and down buttons on your keyboard. In this picture, they are on the F7 and F8 key. 3. While holding down the function button, press the key that has the "brightness up" picture on it, similar to the icon on the F8 key in the picture. . bradisright.jpg

My Dell laptop keyboard settings have apparently been changed-I have to hold down the Fn key to get the letters on the keyboard instead of the Fn items indicated on the keyboard. How do I fix it?


Maybe this is the result of inadvertently turning on "Sticky keys" (see the Accessibility Control Panel Help file). Try holding the Fn key down for several seconds with no other key pressed to see if that turns off the Fn lock-on. After that you can disable the Sticky Keys function in Accessibility.

When i connect projector to computer it just says searching and my presentation wont show up on screen


Hello.

Look at your computer's function (F) keys. See which one has either a screen symbol or the words "CRT/LCD". Typically, it's the F4 or F8 key.

Hold down the Fn key and press that F key and after the first, second or third try, the presentation on the computer should display on your projector's screen.

Hope this helps.
