Try going to control panel-install/remove hardware. Find your keyboard in the list, right click, go to properties, click on driver, then update driver. If that does not work, please inquire back for more assistance.

My laptop screen cracked and I can only see the left side. I hooked up a desktop monitor. It comes on but goes into sleep mode. How can I make this work without getting my laptop screen fixed. Thanks.


easiest is to boot (turn off and then on)the laptop with the monitor attached. It should then find it and stay on. there is also a function key combination (usually F5) hold down the function key and press F5 and you should get the signal on the new screen

I have a Toshiba Satellite T1300, the computers starts fine but the video screen is black.


Try to hook it up to an external monitor, if this works,your video card is working, Next Step.. then look on the laptop keyboard for a functiion key with a little picture of a screen on it, usually u have to hold down the fn key and hit F4, or F5 or F6 etc, look at the F keys at the top of the keyboard, and hold down function key at the bottom left of the keyboard, usually near the alt and ctrl keys, if you dont have a fn key (function key then hit ctr key, and at the same time hit the F key with screen pic on it, it might say lcd on key or be a box inside a box on the key. If this doesnt work try rebooting the laptop in safe mode by hitting F8 key before windows starts and go into safe mode. It is possible that a recent program or windows update that was installed is causing the blank screen. If the black screen happened after a new software install, delete that software while in safe mode. And reboot, Good Luck :)

How to make the screen darker if fn keys don't work?


Hai,

1. Attach the connector lead of the monitor to your laptop
2. So you don't see the display? :D
3. The laptop has an Function key (Fn key next to the windows start key) on the keyboard. Press and hold the key, and hit the F5 or F8 key or that F key which has the monitor icon on it (it is F5 on toshiba and F8 on dell).
4. This should fix it.
5. Sometimes a high resolution to an extended screen can also be a cause of non-display. Just reduce the resolution of your new (additional) monitor to 800X600 and that must fix it.
6. If these two still don't fix, then your next bet is re-installing your display device drivers.

Hope this Helped!
Good luck!!

Need to see display on both laptop and projector


On most laptops pressing the Fn key plus the F5 key (in your model laptop) several times will cause the video to switch to different options
In the various laptops I've used with data projectors it is the same.
If you plug in the data projector and power it up then the laptop then the Windows image will be on the data projector (provided the laptop's screen resolution matches the data projector).
To toggle between the data projector only, the LCD screen, then LCD screen plus data projector, and or back through this sequence, just press the Fn key and the F5 key to get the displays you want .

Blank screen on my acer aspire 3680 laptop


Sounds like you have gotten stuck in presentation mode. Hold down the function Key (Fn) its blue, and then hit the (F5) key once. If the screen doesn't come back, press both again.

Toshiba TE2100 blank laptop screen


Try holding the Fn key down and then press the F5 key a few times, waiting a few seconds each time to give it a time to switch between display modes.

Screen goes blank(not Black, but dark) after windows boots


Perhaps it is trying to power an external monitor. Try this: Once your computer boots up, hold down the "fn" key (usually bottom row of keyboard) and then hit the key that shows what looks to be a monitor on it. Usually on the Toshibas, its the F5 key. This key will always be in the F key row. Let me know if this helps.

IPC laptop has blank screen


All your doing in the bios is changing the boot up sequence to the drives?. If it was FN key and F5 similtaneously then Im baffled. In my machine its the FN and F4 together or at the same time and the screen goes back and forwards or both stay on.
