Third function keyboard


The purpose of a laptop's function key is to activate the secondary function of any dual-purpose key.

The function key can accidentally be locked into place if you hit the wrong combination of keys so that all of the keys only perform their secondary function.

The exact process for unlocking the function key will vary depending on the make and model of your laptop and whether you have recently used an external keyboard.

1
Check the manual that came with your laptop and locate the section on the function of each keyboard key.

Open a Web browser and navigate to the support section of the laptop manufacturer's website if you do not have the manual that originally came with your laptop.

Use the drop-down menus on the support page to choose the specific product line and then model of your laptop.
2

Click on the "Product Support" link and then navigate to the "Manuals" section of the page. Click on the link to open a PDF version of the manual for your laptop.

Browse down to the section about the functions of the keyboard keys.
3

Find the sequence of keys you need to press to unlock the function key on your laptop.
Press and hold the function key on the keyboard and then press the other keys required to unlock it.
4

Try using the most standard keyboard combinations if you don't have the manual or it does not give any information about the function key.

Press the function key and then the shift key and see if it successfully unlocks the function key. Attempt using the other standard keys in conjunction with the function key, such as the "F11," "F12" and "Ctrl" keys.
5

Plug a USB keyboard into the USB port on your laptop if you have recently used an external keyboard with the laptop.

Check the light above the "Numlock" key on the external keyboard and see if it is turned on. Press the key and make sure the light is turned off and then remove the keyboard to unlock the function key.

Screen broken


Yes you can.
Connecting an External Monitor or Data Projector
You can switch to an external monitor or data projector by two methods. 1. Connect the external monitor to the laptop's video port, power up the external monitor first and the laptop. The video information will automatically switch to the external monitor. 2. If you power up the laptop first then you can switch the video output to the external monitor by pressing the Fn key and one of the Function keys, depending upon your make and model laptop. You can also toggle between the external monitor or both LCD screen plus the external monitor or back to LCD screen only by pressing the Fn key plus one of the function key a few times. Here is a list of key combinations for some of the laptops :- IBM ThinkPad = Fn + F7 HP and Compaq = Fn + F4 Toshiba = Fn + F5 Dell = Fn + F8

Black screen


1) Which software did you remove?
2) Is the machine running, but you just cannot see anything, or is it totally dead? Any sounds, humming, drives turning, lights flashing?

If it is not dead, try plugging in an external screen. To get the screen to work, you may have to press Fn5 I think (has a picture of two screens on the key). If the signal goes to the external screen, try pressing a couple of times more and see if it cycles back to the laptop's own screen. If the screen does not wake up, but the external one works, your screen needs looking at. If under warranty, take it back, otherwise it will be up to you to decide whether to spend on fixing it or splurging on a new one. You could of course just turn the laptop into a deskbound machine using the external screen, and spend the money on something else.

Laptop comes on but screen is black/blank


If you don't see anything at all and it has not been dropped or banged it maybe something as simple as the Video out selection. Look at the keyboard and locate the [FN] and the [F4](Actually look for the key with a small video screen on it which is usually the F4 on HP machines). After turning the computer on press and hold the [FN] key then press the [F4] Key. There are 3 modes programmed into the video selection. Computer monitor, Computer monitor and External Display and External Display only. What happens a lot of the time is someone may have accidentally pressed this combination of keys and the video is actually redirected to the external monitor only option. If this does not help and you can connect the computer to an external monitor and use that key combination to get the output to that screen then the problem is most likely the Back light for the monitor of the screen itself. Both can be replaced. HP can provide the back light part at a reasonable price. For the screen itself I recommend you go to someplace like E-Bay and purchase the replacement. Make sure you look at the sellers past record so you don't get taken. I DO NOT recommend using Craig's List for anything.

When i turn the notebook on i can see nothing blank black screen


Sounds like one of two issues,

1. You have the internal display turned off. When you turn the laptop on you should hear a single beep. Do you see the Sony Logo during bootup? Have you tried to turn the display back on? Try pressing the Fn+F7, or Fn+F8, key combination. There are only three modes and these key combinations allow you to cycle through these modes. Either the Primary Screen is on, or the External Screen is on, or both are on.

2. You may have a bad video card or the screen is dead. When you power up the laptop, can you see a glow, but the screen is black? Can you see the Bootup Screen with the Sony Logo, but barely? Have you tried to connect an external monitor to the laptop to see if the video card is working? If you get video to the external monitor, the video card is working. If you don't, then the video card may be bad. If you are getting video on the external monitor, try using the key combinations listed above and try to cycle through your Internal/External display modes.If nothing shows up on the laptop display then the LCD screen may be bad. It could be the back light. Those are internal to the LCD. That means you will have to replace the entire LCD display on the laptop.

Hope that helps.

Watch out that you haven't switched off the screen by accident. One of the function key combinations toggles between the built-in screen and the VGA socket on the back or side panels to allow the use of either an external monitor or video projector. The key combination toggles three ways: 1) internal screen, 2) external VGA, or 3) both. On my Acer Travelmate 2200, the key combination is <Fn> + <F5>. Please try this first.
