Question about Dell Studio 17 Laptop

1 Answer

I just figured out how to set the top row to Fn keys instead of multimedia keys on the Dell Studio 17. Hit the light-up ''gears'' button in the center of the top part of the keyboard (to the left of the sound and rewind, pause, play, fast forward touch keys. At the bottom of the screen that comes up, you can select to have the top row work as Fn keys instead of multimedia keys.

Hi, I have a Dell Latitude D830. The display was off. I can connect extrenal monitor for current work. Please advise if I need replace display or motherboard ? Thanks Alex


Before replacing anything verify that your laptops display type didn't get changed to VGA out only.
look at your function keys (usually top one or two rows ) and look for the key that has a pc/monitor icon. with the machine powered up and connected to the external monitor press the function (FN button lower left of keyboard) and the video/monitor button at the same time. most laptops have 3 settings:
laptop display only, external display only and laptop and external display. Press the FN/Display button at lease 3 times waiting 3-5 seconds between keystrokes. I have seen this many times where the FN/display button keys are hit inadvertently.
Typically if the motherboard or video card fail the external monitor would not work either.

A few days ago when I was on the the laptop anytime I pressed the letters mjkluio , numbers would appear instead. I tried to press the num lock button and it made no difference. Nothing would fix it so I...


The Function keys up top will not do anything when not in a program that has them set.

The num lock key on most laptops does not itself work: it must be pressed in conjunction with another key. This is normally the "FN" key at the lower left.

Please try pressing the "FN" key while you press the "num lock" key and see if this now works.

A button was pushed on my Dell studio laptop and the screen is reversed. How do I switch back?


You should hold down the Fn or Function button while pushing the top row of F1, F2, F3 etc buttons until you find the one you probably hit accidentally.

How do I eject the CD from the Dell studio laptop?


Eject button should be on the drive on the side. You can also go into my computer and right click the drive and select eject. If neither works the drive must be broken but you can use a paperclip. There will be a tiny hole to insert the paperclip (after you straighten it out). Push the paperclip in and it should open the drive. Good Luck.

How do i access the function keys on the studio 17


I do not use studio but I do use Dell Inspiron.

In order to access the function keys look for a unique button on your keyboard. In my laptop its "Fn" its colored blue and the function buttons are also colored blue(they are underneath some other buttons), so if I want to access the functions button I have to hold the FN button and then press the switch that also has the function button.

For example:
1. the button "Q" has "F1" under it
2. So I have to hold FN and then press Q to access F1

This should be similar to your laptop

How do I turn on my backlit keyboard on my dell with windows vista?


Hi,

Sorry for the last answer. The expert probably didn't understand your question.

If you have purchased the optional backlit keyboard, the right-arrow key will have the backlit keyboard icon on it. The backlit keyboard provides visibility in dark environments by illuminating all symbols on the keys. The settings for this keyboard can be personalized by using
Dell QuickSet.

Backlit Keyboard Brightness Settings – Press <Fn> + right-arrow key to toggle between the three lighting states (in the given order).
The three lighting states are:
a. full keyboard/touch pad brightness
b. half keyboard/touch pad brightness
c. no lighting

Hope this helps. If you need the manual for this computer, it is located here:

Thanks for using FixYa.

My acer lap top will not recanize the projector when i press the fn plus thef8 keys


Hi, Try lowering your laptop's resolution (Display Properties) to 1024x768 (or even lower like 800x600), before fn + F8. You can also try lowering the Monitor's screen refresh rate (60Hx). Another setting you can check is Advanced Settings tab or button and check settings for projector (instead of TV). If it works in the lower settings, you can try moving the settings higher until it quits again. If the above does not fix your problem, you may need to re-install your graphics/video driver. Hope this gives you an idea. Post back should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.
