Hi

The utilities need to be installed on the laptop, if they are not installed the special features may not function.

Send me the brand and model of the laptop and I'll see if I can find you the programs needed.

    Thanks,



    From the fujitsu downloads - http://support.fujitsupc.com/CS/Portal/s...



    You need to install the following and it should work after doing so (restart may be required when they are all installed)



    Button driver
    Button utility
    button utilities update
    Hotkey



    I can't give you a direct link to just download them so you have to do the search page and select your model yourself from the list and then install the listed above. Install in the order posted.

The FN key stopped working from nothing, pressing FN + F3 or f4 or f5 or f6 or f7 nothing happens


Its probably just a broken key on the keyboard. If you know someone with a usb keyboard then plug it in and see if the FN key on that responds. if it does then it is the keyboard at fault.I would buy a new keyboard.

Fn F6 and F7 stopped working. Can't dim/brighten screen


First, try to test the functionality of the Fn key by using it to alter another setting on your laptop. If it doesn't, you'll need to go to BIOS and enable the Keyboard Function option (or alike, depending on your BIOS version).
If the Fn key does work, then try to see if F6 and F7 function at all. For example, if you're using Firefox, the F6 key should highlight the entire URL of the website you're visiting. F7 brings up a "Caret Browsing"dialog box. If both keys function well, then you may want to reinstall the drivers of your graphics card. If nothing happens after the update, and if you use Vista, then go to Start, and right-click on the Computer label. From the popup menu select Manage, and in the new window go to the last listing, where you'll find a sub-entry labeled Services. Click on it, and from the list on the right, look for a service that's called Keyboard shortcuts or alike (sorry I don't remember exactly how it's labeled as I dont use Vista). Double-click this Keyboard service, and from the new windows see if it's started, and if it's set to Automatic run each time Windows loads. Then restart Windows and hopefully your LCD will dimm/brighten.

My Fujitsu touchpad is crossed showing it to be locked. How to unlock?


hi,
you can unlock or lock the keypad of your notepad by pressing the "fn" key and F7 key simultaneously. In some versions this feature is changed to "fn + F6" keys. please check the symbol on the keys from (F4-F7), where you can find the symbol of "hand on pad". press fn and that particular key simultaneously to unlock your touchpad! i have shown the picture of another laptop. please observe the F7 key in that picture given below. you can see the symbol i specified. hope this is helpful. Please rate my solution as helpful.ecafc84.jpg

How can I adjust the contrast on my laptop, I can't see very well


Hold the Fn key down, then press the Right Side Arrow key to increase brightness. (Bottom of keyboard, 5th key from the right)

Granted, that doesn't increase the contrast, it increases the Brightness.
Should the brightness not increase to a level that you feel is comfortable, then I suggest you have a Backlight, or Inverter going bad.

It's hard to find a Compaq manual their site, but they indicate you'll find this in the help files on your computer.
This is usually done with a combination of keys-look for the Fn key and a key that looks like a sun symbol. It may have an arrow pointing up or down. Use these keys together to change the brightness.
