How to rotate screen in windows XP


Instructions
    • 1

      Press "Ctrl-Alt" and an arrow key (left, right, up or down) to rotate the screen.

    • 2

      Continue pressing the hotkeys and arrow keys until you reach the desired rotation. This works with most video drivers on Windows XP. If it doesn't, proceed to Step 3.

      Click "Start," then "Control Panel," then "Display," then the "Settings" tab. Click the "Advanced" button. Check for an "Orientation" option. Select your desired orientation.

My toshiba satellite just stopped working after installing kaspersky internet security. what should I do?


If it still boots, try hitting F8 during startup and see if you can boot safe mode (I'm assuming you're using Windows) and if so, use add-remove programs to uninstall the software.

If it doesn't boot at all then you might have a different problem altogether.

The m and caps lock keys on my Toshiba satellite


Bad keyboard. This series have a higher frequency of keyboard problems because ... well .. the keyboard cable got folded by design. Just replace it. The A40's uses the same keyboard as a A10, A15, A55, A60, A64, 1400, 1405, 1410, 1415, 2400, 2405, 2410, 2415 ... and many others. A new replacement keyboard should run about $20 on eBay.

Replacing the KB is easy: lift up the power button board above the keyboard, remove the three screws holding the keyboard down, then remove the keyboard connector cover panel, and you'll be able to disconnect the keyboard.

Keyboard beep


Isolate the issue first. If your using an external keyboard, remove it and test if you still experience it. If not, then there could be a stuck key on your external keyboard.
If yes, then there could be a stuck key on the laptops keyboard.

If there is a stuck key, try to check the buttons on the KB then contact Toshiba to avail of your warranty for the repair.

Hope this helps.
