There could be many reasons possibly, I) your hard drive must have gone bad 2) Operating system is corrupt. 3) If you don't have any personal data on the comptuer, perform a windows reinstallation.

How to use the function (Fn) keys on the keyboard - ThinkPad T40, T40p, T41, T41p, T42, T42p, T43, T43p


Switching the display output location.
Switch between the computer display and an external monitor. If an external monitor is attached, the computer output is displayed in the following three patterns by turns:
  • External monitor (CRT display)
  • Computer display and external monitor (LCD + CRT display)
  • Computer display (LCD)
Notes:
  • For any operating system other than Windows 2000 or Windows XP, no additional procedure is needed. Just press Fn+F7.
  • This function is not supported if different desktop images are displayed on the computer display and the external monitor (the Extend desktop function).
  • This function does not work while a DVD movie or a video clip is playing.
To enable this function in Windows 2000 and Windows XP, the following procedure is needed:
  1. When you log on to Windows 2000 and Windows XP for the first time, press Fn + F7 and select a display-switching function in the Initial setup window. Since in Windows 2000 and Windows XP multiple users can log on to a single operating system by using different user IDs, each user needs to select the function in the initial setup window when logging on for the first time.
  2. If the Fn + F7 key combination have been assigned to a presentation scheme function, start Presentation Director, and change the settings.

There is no bios setting comes and also no operating system found message come and also format not star


Every computer needs a BIOS and an Operating System. The key combination to get to the BIOS is displayed on the screen for a couple of seconds at system startup. If you fail to press those keys the computer will try to start any existing OS. If no OS is found then you MUST install one to use your computer.

Hi received today a refurbished compaq 5000 nx laptop when first switched on i entered my wireless code and could access the internet, then computer said critical microsoft updates needed to download, when...


The black screen means that the Operating System is obsolete. The blue screen of ***** means that the Operating System is corrupted or you have a virus. My suggestion is to buy Windows 8.1 or 10, and do a clean install. This will wipe all the corrupt files and viruses off of the computer. After you install the new Operating System let Microsoft do all the updates. And make sure automatic updates is turned on. Hope this helps

your operating system wasn't found because kill disk wipes your hard drive clean.
You have to re-install your operating system, all the drivers, and any programs that you might want in your computer.
Boot into the BIOS (tapping the delete key during initial boot-up should get you there, or follow any instructions on the bottom of your POST screen to get into "set-up") and make sure your DVD/CD drive is the first boot option, then put your operating system disc in the drive, and re-boot...the drive should read your CD, and boot from there.
