    when you turn on your computer do get to see anything on the screen before it goes blank? do you get to see any light on the power button or led on your machine that will indicate that it is turned on? do you feel if the fan at the back of the computer is working? do you get to hear a beep sound? do you get to see the keyboard led lights flash for a few seconds when you turn on the computer?

Press the 'Fn' and 'F5' simultaneously again to return the display priority to its previous setting. You may have to do this twice.

Worst case:
If the display still does not work you may like to try connected an external computer screen to the latop - this will tell you if the laptop is actually working just a broken display.

No video signal vga laptop to tv


Make sure you have the TV's input set to PC or Computer to receive the signal from the VGA.

Make sure the connections are snug on the computer and on the tv.

Reboot the computer and see if it automatically starts the display on the tv. If not, there are a sequence of keys that you can press to toggle the display between the tv and the computer.

Normally to toggle the display you will have to Press and Hold the FN function key located at the bottom left portion of your keyboard and then hit the corresponding key (F1 thru F12) that toggles the display. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit will have the CRT/LCD on it or it might have the icon of a display.

How do i turn my screen back the right way


How to Rotate a Computer Screen 90 Degrees

Perhaps you built your own monitor, and the screen is displaying at the wrong angle now that it's all set up. Maybe you installed a new graphics card or driver, and it appears something has gone horribly wrong. It's possible you're just being creative, and think it would be cool to lay your monitor on its side and still be able to use the computer. Or, most likely, your cat or kids pressed some mysterious key combination which rotated your screen for you, and you can't get it back. Don't worry; getting your screen to rotate 90 degrees is easier than you think.



1 Identify in which direction your screen needs to be rotated. There are four shortcut key combinations, and each will rotate your screen so that the top of the screen is at the top, bottom, left or right side of your monitor; you need to know which combination to choose. Say you are you trying to correct a mistake, and put the top of your screen back where it belongs--at the top of the monitor. Or you are trying to rotate your screen because you are using your monitor differently than most people do, and want the top of the screen to be at the left or right side of the monitor, or even upside-down.


2 Hold down "Ctrl + Alt" and the "up" arrow key if you want to return the top of your screen to the top of the monitor. "Ctrl + Alt + Left Arrow" will rotate your screen so that the top of the display is on the left side of your monitor, and using the Right Arrow will put it at the right side. The Down Arrow will turn your screen upside down if your monitor is right side up. Make sure you hold all three keys down long enough; the screen may go back for a moment as the screen is rotated.


3 Open your "Control Panel" if nothing is happening, and see if there is an option to "Enable Screen Rotation" under your Display options. If not, you may not be able to rotate your screen. This is especially common with older computers, as they have older graphics cards or integrated video If you have a newer computer, you may need to have the graphics drivers updated in order for the shortcut to work.


Tips & Warnings

If pets or children accidentally rotated your screen, consider finding a way to better protect your keyboard not just from accidental keystrokes, but from pet hair and kids' spills. A keyboard cover might be in order.

How do I turn on my MSI laptop, model #MS-16GN? It's my 13 year old daughter's and I need to monitor.


If you mean set up parental controls, you need to have an account on the laptop under your name with your own password (the next bit s taken directly from Microsoft)

Open Parental Controls by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, clicking Control Panel, and then, under User Accounts, clicking Set up Parental Controls.? 18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b.png If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

Click the standard user account for which you want to set Parental Controls. (this will be your daughters account)

Under Parental Controls, click On.

Once you've turned on Parental Controls for your child's standard user account, you can adjust the individual settings that you want to control. You can control the following areas:
  1. Web restrictions. You can restrict the websites that children can visit, make sure children only visit age-appropriate websites, indicate whether you want to allow file downloads, and set up which content you want the content filters to block and allow. You can also block or allow specific websites. For more information, see Limit the content that children can view on the web.

    Time limits. You can set time limits to control when children are allowed to log on to the computer. Time limits prevent children from logging on during the specified hours and, if they are already logged on, they will be automatically logged off. You can set different logon hours for every day of the week. For more information, see Control when children can use the computer.


  2. Games. You can control access to games, choose an age rating level, choose the types of content you want to block, and decide whether you want to allow or block unrated or specific games. For more information, see Specify which games children can play.


  3. Allow or block specific programs. You can prevent children from running programs that you don't want them to run. For more information, see Prevent children from using specific programs.

With XP, all you can do is set up content adviser, which is a bit limited
To do this: Control panel / Internet options / Content / Content Advisor / Then in the box that appears, set the level of safety

Hi my laptop turns on and goes to the windows


Hi,

If it starts to load the operating system and then the display goes black then chances are that the dispay/video drivers are corrupt.

Boot the machine into safe mode by restarting the computer and repeatedly press the F8 key as it starts. This should bring up a sub menu with safe mode at the top. Use the cursor keys to highlight safe mode and press enter.
You will see white boot information scroll up the screen, be patient and wait for it to load up.
Click on your account and you will see a message about system restore. You don't want to use system restore so click on yes to work in safe mode.

Right click on My Computer/Computer and click on manage from the list. Then select Device Manager.

Look in the list for display adapters and click on the + or > next to to expand the list. Right click on the display adapter and select uninstall.

Restart the computer and it should load up the operating system and reinstall the drivers for the display.

Regards.

Toshiba A105 dispay


This is usually a sign that the LCD is going to die and needs replaced but it could just be loose.

If you are comfortable with computers and have some knowledge you could try taking the face plate off of the monitor and making sure the connection plugged into the back of the LCD is securely fastened.

The laptop could also be overheating. Try setting it on a table and using it with nothing covering up the vent holes. see if that helps.
