Fn key

You could map that FN key to another unused key in Windows such as use the "[" or "]" key mapped as FN. Requires DOTNET Framework 2.0 to operate.

if no joy try it in safe mode

restart you computer tap the f8 key repeatedly to enter safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you an attempt to repair your computer

If done properly the user should get to a screen similar to the below screen.

Select the option for Safe mode command prompt only

Windows Advanced Options Menu
Please select an option:

Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt

Enable Boot Logging
Enable VGA mode
Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows domain controllers only)
Debugging Mode

Start Windows Normally
Return to OS Choices Menu

Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice.
select safe mode
restart your computer press and hold the delete or f2 key to enter BIOS using the arrow keys load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

When I start my Lenovo T 60 it show check date and time after that it show Key picture,thank

You get this message if your Laptop (CMOS/configuration) Date is really outdated and wrong: check and change your Laptop Configuration setting for Date and Time. Also check your Windows Date/Time.
If the date/time you enter is not maintained properly, especially after you switch off the laptop, then you have a bad backup CMOS battery that needs to be replaced.

Hope it helps.

My computer is having start up issues. When I turn it on it'll act like it's loading normally and then it'll beep twice. It'll go to a screen that will have several ERRORs on it and ask me to press either...


It may happen when CMOS Checksom error i.e error may happen due to keyboard failure. Please follow the steps to short the BIOS

> Open the Laptop back panel. Locate the CMOS battery, remove it & then with the
help of a screw driver keep on pressing the terminal inside it and turn ON the computer for 10 secs and Turn Off (make sure you keep on pressing the terminal with a
screwdriver while turning ON). It will short the BIOS setting. Now, fix the CMOS battrey & restart the computer. This will take care of the issue.

Now, restart the computer in normal mode. If still facing issues then I would suggest a full system recovery.

You can restore the computer back to factory default,to do so, follow the below steps: Turn OFF the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key & keep on tapping "F10" key, i.e Alt+f10, it will open the recovery console, select full factory restore and follow onscreen instruction. NOTE: This will erase all the datas on the computer.

Thanks and regards,

I cannot get to Windows XP even tried F8 function and F2 as well as F12. All it does is load Dell and then the screen goes blank

Hello sewelika, hi, your laptop has main board problems, this are the things that should be checked, sorry there are no quick fix on this.
  • check battery/CMOS battery as well, this may cause the laptop have wrong idea of what hardware are connected.
  • check for memory which causes your laptop not to boot.
  • check for Hard drive this causes window not to load, and
  • Mainboard this causes all the above not to work properly.

Once windows loads, the display stops working

There are many problems that could affect displays. Once could be as simple as pressing your Fn key and the Up arrow to increase the brightness. Try Fn Key and F4 key after it boots to see if it is onl the proper display.

If either of these tricks work then it could be a power inverter or backlight bulb.

Your best bet is to take it to a computer repair shop.

Please rate 4 stars.

My hp laptop 22mths old wont keep time. very time i switch it off it wakes with time it was switched off at? is it the cmos battery? no warranty.


Thank you for your query

From your description, indeed it does sound like the CMOS battery, however the vest way to check is next time you start the Laptop do the following

1)When loading the laptop there will be a message that says hit F12 or hit the del key etc etc to get into bios, press the appropriate key, if there is no such messgae try the keys F12, del or esc

once in Bios check the time if it is incorrect then it is the CMOS battery, if it isnt then it is windows related

However from what you are describing it does seem to be the CMOS battery

If this has been useful please leave positive feedback/vote/testimonial as this will help me greatly - Thank You again

How to reset power-on password.

The only way is to clear the cmos settings. However, there is a special way to do it. First you have to take out the battery and the power adaptor from the laptop. Then you need to open the laptop and look on the main board for the cmos battery. Take it out for a few minutes, maybe 5 - 10 minutes. Then plug in the power adaptor without the cmos battery nor the laptop battery and boot the computer. It will ask you to hit F1 to either load default values or to save settings. Do that. Then shut down the computer. Make sure settings is saved though. Put in back the cmos battery and the laptop battery. When you reboot, it should boot up with no password.
