THERE IS A LITTLE KNOB ON THE KEYBOARD TO THE RIGHT OF THE LOCK AND UNLOCK ICON ON THE MONITOR. The monitor keeps going off and pressing this knob brings it on however it is not working properly. The monitor stays on for a fraction of a second and goes off. If I keep pressing the button it eventually stays on for a short time. I had this trouble when I first got the machine and then it settled down and I had no more problems so I didnt report it but now it is doing it all the time. I can sometimes see the monitor for a few minutes like now and other times it goes dark although you can still type and see what you have typed when it lights up again. You can just about make out whats on the monitor in the dark so the actual computer is still on. What should I do. Can I stop this knob from going off?
Same as all else. I have a Dell 17" that keeps going off when first initiated. After about 12 to 18 times, turning off then on again, it seems to stay on but it takes longer and longer. Is this a problem with the monitor? or is it something with the computer? It has been suggested that it could be the back light....but I don't know how that works on an LCD flatscreen

Re: MONITOR KEEPS GOING OFF.
Try your monitor with another computer. If it's still a problem.
This is the way how to examine what's wrong with your LCD
monitors. Power on both CPU and monitor. After the monitor goes off, you
check that you can see the image on the screen by shining a flashlight into the
screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very
closely. If you can see the icons or any image, there will be a minor problem.
Like me, I can see window image using flashlight and check lamps inside. Some
of them were broken and it is easily replaced. If you cannot see anything on
the screen, there'll be some problems with inverter board. If you have
soldering tool and want to fix it by yourself, check the caps first. It may
cause this problem. Some caps might show leaking or burn spot on the board
because of too high temp. If you don't have soldering tool, you better go get a
technician to do so.

There's a little led that lights up on the keyboard to show that Num lock is on. Why do you want to see it on the monitor? Are you using some kind of keyboard software on your monitor? What is your operating system? What is the name of the keyboard software you are using? Could really use a little more information. Maybe your particular keyboard software doesn't have a num lock feature because the numbers are always locked any way. Need more details.
you should have a button on the monitor to pop up a menu which will let u adjust the volume, also in the lower right hand corner of your computer screen look for an icon that looks like a speaker, right click this and you can adjust volume here or unmute, it maybe hidden and you may need to click the little arrow to reveal the speaker icon. Failing this go to Start Menu, Control Panel, Audio/Sound and find it here.
This is assuming you are using Windows 7. (Since you didn't specify. -_-)
Software lock at same time = No.
Hardware lock at same time = Yes.
When you have the keyboard connect and the laptop plugged into the monitor, go to your Windows Mobility Center. Go to "Power Options. Look for "What to do when you close the lid." and tell it to do "Nothing".
Then close your laptop and lock it.
well you can do this by using the filter keys ..follow the steps below to get your job done:
To lock keyboard with filterkeys
->activate sticky keys by pressing the shift key 5 times.
-> Go to settings and click the radio button 'use filter keys' this locks the keyboard and gives nifty little sounds all except the taskbar button if keyboard has one
->. easily unlock by double clicking little clock emblem in the bottom right hand corner of screen and deselecting use filter keys. Make sure you hit 'apply'

Uncle Buck: On the bottom of the keyboard and to the left you will see a blue "FN" . Now locate the "Pad Lock or Key with a Paddle-lock Icon" across the top and to the right of the function keys. Hold down the "FN" key, press the "pad Lock" key, release both keys. You should be good to go...
The icon should mean the NUM LOCK is on. All that does is activate the numberpad on the right side of the keyboard. Chances are the monitor's backlight is bad. Try another monitor. You can also get a flashlight, turn it on and hold it very close to the face of the screen. Look closely at the screen, can you see your desktop or login screen? If so the backlight is not working with in the monitor.
