I turn on my computer and i don't see anything

Guess what? I don't see it either.

Oh,....that's because you're there, and I'm here, and.............never mind.

(OH, I'm jus jokin'!)

Would be helpful to know the laptop manufacturer name, and model number, though. The name you know, the model number is on the bottom of the laptop.

Diagnose to see what the problem is;

A) Graphics chipset,
B) Video Cable,
C) In the Display Assembly

1) Suggest start with attaching a VGA monitor to the laptop.

Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, attach the VGA cable of a VGA monitor, to the VGA connector on the laptop.

Example of a VGA Cable, and VGA connector,

You can use a CRT type of monitor, (Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen monitor if it has a VGA cable.

2) Turn the monitor on. If a CRT type allow it to warm up.
Turn the laptop on. By factory default the display should show on the external VGA monitor.

IF not;
There are at least 3 display options available,

A) Internal monitor of laptop ONLY
B) Internal monitor of laptop AND external VGA monitor
C) External VGA monitor ONLY

Hold the Fn key down, and tap once on the Display Toggle-Over key.
Which key is the Display Toggle-Over key?
Don't know. You didn't state the laptop manufacturer name, and model number.

It is one of the F keys at the top. F1 through F12.
Usually has a monitor symbol on it, and a side arrow.
(Most of the time the F4, F5, F7, or F8 key)

No display on the external VGA monitor?
Hold the Fn key down again, and tap once more on the Display Toggle-Over key.

Still no? Bad graphics chipset.

Display shows on external VGA monitor? Problem is the Video Cable, or in the Display Assembly.
Post back in a Comment after you have performed this procedure, and also post the manufacturer name, and model number.

If the graphics chipset is good, we'll go on with the diagnoses if you wish.

How do i reset the password to my 2wire router an connect a wireless laptop

Is your 2Wire Router by AT&T, if so the password is on the side or bottom of the router. Look for Network Key or Network Password on the router.

Once you have that, you simply go to your laptop, and try connecting to your wireless router. It will be the one with the strongest signal if you don't know your SSID. Once you click connect, it will ask you for the password/passphrase or key, type in what you found on the router.

There is really no need to reset the password unless you have some other reason. But there are 2 ways to reset the router's password, you will need to have a computer that is connected to the router with a network cable (most times this is a desktop already connected). Then you will need to know the router's IP Address to type into a internet browser. It will be a set of numbers such as that you would type into the address bar where you normally type www to get to a web page. Once you have the right ip address you will need the router's login id and password. Most times this is set to the default unless whoever set it up changed it. Once you are in the router then you go to the wireless and wireless security area to change the password. If you don't know the ip address or the userid and password for the router, then you can google it on the internet.

If your internet provider is AT&T you might be better off calling them to reset your router's password. They can walk you through it.

I spilled coffee in my compaq laptop./ The computer works and will turn on however the keys are sticking. so I cant type a sentence. Is there a qucik fix for this>

take your laptop to the expert who can deal with laptop well.don't try to clean the keyboard yourself because it is easy to remove the keys from the keyboard but then you won't be able to fix them on the keyboard properly. If you still try to remove the keys you can damage the keyboard's key sensors.

What do I do if my Asus 1005 will type like im pressing the fn key but im not. Im trying to type but the numbers would show up instead of the letters like if im pressing the fn key. I don't know what...

Well this seems to be obviously a keyboard problem, that sort of things happens when the keyboard is extremely dirty or water or other liquids get to the keyboard circuits, there's no practical way to make it work as good as new since it's a laptop keyboard and it's all sealed, there are two options get the laptop to technical service or buy a compatible keyboard and follow this tutorial or this one.
If you have any other problem don't hesitate to ask.

Blue characters on the keyboard when I type

It is a combination of key known as "Function" (Fn, for short). You have to press it and hold while pressing other keys showing the blue letters on it. The most common use is to make a virtual Numerical Keypad on laptops, so you can perform calculations. To be back to normal mode, you need to press FN+F8 (or the key with the Calculator icon).

You know how every button has a second funtion...well, i canèt figure out how to get the first function back (question mark..ect..) it keeps typing És...itès happens often,...

If this is a laptop keyboard, there is usually a "function lock" key or a numlock key. Press the "Fn" key and look for one that says "Num Lock" or an icon on one of the keys that looks like the number keypad from a full size keyboard. Or find a key that says "Fn Lock" or something of the sorts.

Hope this helps!

what is your router? do you know the gateway of your router?

1. Know what is your gateway by using a pc that is online hardwire to your router
> On that pc- check your gateway by doing ipconfig- your DG is your gateway
2. Then access the configuration page of your router- ex.
> Use your browser and type your gateway there.
> It will ask for username and password. You should know that.
3. When your inside your router's configuration page-look for wireless tab, then look for wireless security- you should be able to see there your wep key.
4. Finally type in that wep key on your toshiba laptop. It might ask you to confirm, so type it twice. =)
