Go to Power Options and select 'Choose what the buttons do'. You might have changed the option for 'When I press the Sleep button'. Revert it back to sleep.

Where is the scroll lock key on my keyboard


Hi Mark,

for scroll Lock on your laptop try the key combination hold the Fn key and press the F12 to activate scroll lock, the same can be used to undo the Scroll Lock too.

as you will see that you can also activate most other functions with the Fn Key combination when used with the keys which have the functions printed on them in the same color as the Fn Key
for example Fn+F3 keys will toggle WiFi on or off, Fn+F4 will put the computer to Sleep, Fn+Up Arrow to increase Volume and Fn+Down Arrow to Decrease Volume etc.

hope this helps
warm regard

Function keys not working on hp probook 4440


Identifying the hot keys
A hot key is a combination of the fn key and either the esc key or one of the function keys.
To use a hot key:
Briefly press the fn key, and then briefly press the second key of the hot key combination.
Hot key combination Description
fn+esc Displays information about system hardware components and the system BIOS version number.
fn+f1 Initiates Sleep, which saves your information in system memory. The display and other system
components turn off and power is conserved.
To exit Sleep, briefly press the power button.
CAUTION: To reduce the risk of information loss, save your work before initiating Sleep.
fn+f2 Decreases the screen brightness level.
fn+f3 Increases the screen brightness level.
fn+f4 Switches the screen image among display devices connected to the system. For example, if a
monitor is connected to the computer, fn+f4 alternates the screen image from computer display to
monitor display to simultaneous display on both the computer and the monitor.
Most external monitors receive video information from the computer using the external VGA video
standard. The fn+f4 hot key can also alternate images among other devices that are receiving video
information from the computer.
fn+f5 Initiates the QuickLock security feature. QuickLock protects your information by displaying the
operating system Log On window. While the Log On window is displayed, the computer cannot be
accessed until a Windows user password or a Windows administrator password is entered.
NOTE: Before you can use QuickLock, you must set a Windows user password or a Windows
administrator password. For instructions, see Help and Support. To access Help and support, from
the Start screen, type help, and then select Help and Support.
fn+f6 Displays charge information for all installed batteries. The display indicates which batteries are
charging and reports the amount of charge remaining in each battery.
fn+f7 Mutes or restores speaker sound.
fn+f8 Decreases speaker volume.
fn+f9 Increases speaker volume.
fn+f10 Plays the previous track of an audio CD or the previous section of a DVD or a BD.
32 Chapter 4 Pointing devices and keyboardHot key combination Description
fn+f11 Plays, pauses, or resumes an audio CD, a DVD, or a BD.
fn+f12 Plays the next track of an audio CD or the next section of a DVD or a BD.

I can't get my IBM ThinkPd out of sleep mode. (I'm using another computer right now.) I tried taking the battery out and unplugging it for 20 minutes, pressing power button, holding power button down,...


It sounds like a failed motherboard, If it was stuck in sleep mode the computer would still turn on.

try leaving the battery removed plug in the laptop and see if it turns on, if not it sounds like a bad component on the motherboard.

Which function key allows to switch to tv


Hi there,
You need to press hold the FN key and press the F4 function key once which toggles the display to the External Display source like the television connected along with the LCD of the Notebook.
If the FN and F4 key combination is pressed again, the display will dissappear from the LCD of the Notebook and remain only on the external source.
If the FN and F4 key combination is pressed third time, the display will be back on the LCD of the Notebook and will not remain on the External display source.
Here are these details in other way :
First time pressing FN + F4    ---> Display on LCD and External display
Second time pressing FN + F4 ---> Display not on LCD but on the External Display
Third time pressing FN + F4 ---> Display back on the LCD and not available on External Display (Normal position).
Below are the details of what the Function keys in your DV1000 Notebook work :
fn + f1 Opens Help and Support Center fn + f2 Opens print options window fn + f3 Opens default Internet browser fn + f4 Switches the image among displays fn + f5 Initiates Standby fn + f6 Initiates QuickLock fn + f7 Decreases screen brightness fn + f8 Increases screen brightness fn + f9 Plays, pauses, or resumes an audio CD or DVD fn + f10 Stops an audio CD or DVD fn + f11 Plays the previous track or chapter on an audio CD or DVD fn + f12 Plays the next track or chapter on an audio CD or DVD fn + esc Displays system information.* (*To clear the system information display, press esc.)
Hope this helps...
