Shortcut Key To Flip The Screen In the Windows TO 180 Degree.. The shortcut is (or should be, read below**) for normal windows : Ctrl + Alt + <Up arrow> (or shift+alt+<up arrow>) and for 180 deg it is : Ctrl + Alt + <Down arrow> (or shift+alt+<down arrow>) However, you should know that these are default shortcuts for Intel Extreme Graphics Controller, and you can change them. To check / change or disable these keys go to control panel->Intel Extreme Graphics->Hot Keys. **sometimes the shortcuts do not work. This happens when you have not enabled rotation feature in Display Settings under Intel Graphics Media Accelerator media. You need to enable rotation in order to be able to Rotate / Flip your windows screen upside down / 90 / 180 / 270 degrees.
Mouse: with mouse, do you mean a usb mouse or the mousepad? if the mousepad isnt working, check ur "F" keys for an icon that looks like a mousepad icon. Then press the "Fn" key + the corresponding mousepad icon key and see if it works.
Make sure your mouse and keyboard are close to the receiver (the thing you plug into a usb port). Also make sure you plug the receiver into another usb port because maybe some of those ports are incompatible with the receiver or some ports may be failing. Last, make sure you install the driver (program that came on the cd for your equipment) on the computer.
Its unlikely to be a driver problem but you can check it by plugging in a usb mouse. Not knowing what operating system you are using makes it difficult to fix. You should find the driver in the hardware settings in system. delete them and reboot without the usb mouse plugged in. If it is the driver then the mousepad will be redetected and the driver reloaded. If it works, great, if it does not then a new mousepad will be required.
THe same thing happend to me just now grrr......
I'm really not a technology expert or anything but, when I looked inside of the the "button" I saw a small scratch on the green and gold plate. Did you perhaps notice anything like this? I'll probably have to replace it or something........
But seriously, I hope this problem is solved soon.......
1.) Try reloading the touch pad drivers, should be on the CD that came with it or check the Asus website for new ones.
2.) Have you accidently disabled it? There is a Fn key combination to do this. Try Fn+F9. Also, there is an option to automatically disable the mouse pad when a USB mouse is plugged in. And of course, you can disable it from the Device Manager.
3.) Try going into :: Control Panel, find "Mouse", select the "Device Settings" tab, select the touchpad and click the "Settings" button). Check the settings in the "Tapping" section.
if you take a hard look at your laptop you'll probably find a key that to disable keyboard that with fn will do it
what type of laptop and model
also check in control panel mouse then device settings see if you disabled in there
