Off hand I would say that it is a Scroll Lock icon. Look for the Scroll Lock key and press it. I am guessing you also have a Caps Lock icon (a lock with an "A") and a Number Lock icon (a lock with a "1").

WHAT IS THE SYMBOL LIGHT OF A MOTOR WITH AN ARROW POINTING DOWNWARD? WHAT DOES IT MEAN? ALSO WHAT IS THE CAR SYMBOL WITH A LOCK SYMBOL ON IT AS WELL? AND ALSO WHAT DOES THAT REPRESENT?


if your car has a standard transmission then the icon of the engine that has arrow pointing down might be an indicator that you need to down shift , as

the other symbol ive seen only once before it was on a Bmw and was a symbol for the valet mode , it down tunes the engine and inhibits all the luxury features (like radio) for just the valet to park your car , its possible these two icons are related

How can i turn on the keypad light on my gateway laptop


On the lower right of the taskbar, you'll see an icon that looks like the touchpad. If it is not visible on the taskbar, click the "show hidden icons" arrow. Right click the touchpad icon and check "Touch Pad Lighting" to turn them on.

If this icon is not available then you may have uninstalled or disabled the app from running.

3414 gateway laptop backlight goes out


First look at the buttons on your keyboard. Look for keys that have a sun or light figure on them. It will not be the traditional white color, probably blue, or red, some off color. A particular laptop is a Dell Inspiron, and it has the symbols on the Up and Down arrows. It looks like a sun symbol. The symbols are blue in color, which means there has to be another key on the laptop that is also blue, that you will have to press in conjunction with these keys to perform the function. This is similar to a function key on a calculator. The default setting on your laptop is going to be power conserving. Meaning that when you unplug your laptop, the screen will dim to save power. You can change this by increasing the brightness. So in conclusion, in order to keep your laptop screen bright, you need to turn up the brightness when the laptop is unplugged. Make note that when you do this, the power consumption will increase.

Have dell inspirion1525. Screen is black. By holding down fn key and start key i get flashing lock with 9 and blue lock wih an A and blue lock with a down arrow. What do these mean?


Well the Flashing "lock with 9" is Num Lock, the "blue lock with an A" is Caps Lock, and the "blue lock with a down arrow" is Scroll Lock. Hope that answers that question.

Now for the screen being blank usually means there is an issue with either your LCD display or an issue with the laptops video card. Plug in an external monitor and boot up the laptop if you still get a blank screen then there is an issue with the laptop's video card. If you can see your screen on the external monitor then there is an issue with the connection of the LCD displayon your laptop. You can try ifxing it your sleve by opening up the laptop and making sure the connection is firm or you can take it somewhere to get it fixed.

I have this apple mac notebook and i completely forgot the pass word i cant even get to the start up menu


I assume you have the original Apple installation DVD that came with the Macbook.
Insert the DVD as the mac starts up and immediately hold down the alt key. After a moment or two you will get a blue screen with three icons and a rotating pizza. Wait until the pizza stops spinning and you should get a fourth icon for the DVD. If it didn't work, press the circular arrow - it means restart - and hold down the alt key again. Don't let go until the blue screen appears.
Once the DVD icon appears, click on it so that it turns black then press the arrow that points to the right. The computer will now start up from the DVD.
It is now going to start up as if there is no operating system on the computer and it assumes you are going to install a new system from the DVD. You obviously don't want to do that so what you must next do is look at the menus that have appeared at the top of the screen.
One of them is 'reset Password" or something similar.
Follow it through AND WRITE IT DOWN SOMEWHERE, don't rely on memory.
Then quit the installer and let the computer restart normally.
That should be it.

Blue led power light blinks even after shutdown


What operating system are you using? When the power led continues to slowly blink, that means that the laptop is in standby mode and not fully shut down. In Vista, if you hit the power button on the laptop or the power button under the start button, it is configured to go to standby and not shut down. Make sure to hit the arrow all the way to the right and select shutdown from the list of dropdown options.

The Moon key is for putting your computer to sleep, the keypad light is probably the NUM LOCK LIGHT.

After shutdown of gateway laptop blue power button stays lit.....


Hi this sounds like your computer is in hibernation mode as opposed to shut down mode. Could you check and see as if running Vista many people assume that clicking on the brown power type selection under start that they are shutting down where as this actually only hibernation mode and clicking on the little arrow to the right of this and selecting shutdown is the way to go.
I hope this helps

Blue Rectangular box


I looked around and could not find any explanation either....strange.

I downloaded the software and installed it and even though I don't have your hardware it worked. Here's what I know:

The blue box on my desktop had 5 icons, the number 1, the letter A, a down pointing arrow, a keyboard, and a mouse.

The 1 lights up when you have the Num Lock set on your keyboard.

The A lights up when you have Caps Lock set on your keyboard.

The downward arrow lights up when you have Scroll Lock set on your keyboard.

I do not know when the the keyboard and mouse lights will illiuminated. I am guessing that perhaps they'll turn red when your batteries are low, but that's just a guess.

Lastly, I don't get paid for this, I just like helping to solve problems. For whatever reason half the people who use this site don't rate the solutions. If you found this information helpful I hope you take a moment and vote.

I'll keep looking to see if I can find an actual manual that fully describes this software.
