SOURCE: cannot display image on a proector using Lenovo laptop

Sounds like an extended desktop. have you tried dragging an open window (ie. internet explorer webpage) to the top, right, bottom, AND left? When you get to one of the edges, move it like you are moving it off and it should move to the other screen. You can change your setting to 'duplicate' your desktop in your video settings.

SOURCE: Need Laptop with Trackpoint directional tool similar to Lenovo Thinkpad

Looks like Lenovo is the only one that makes them anymore. My Toshiba notebook has one but it's an older model. I don't think the ones they make carry it.

SOURCE: Keyboard Keys Mismatch error

this could be caused by a couple of different issues:
1st Depending on the operating system you have loaded, it could have the wrong keyboard type or emulation selected.
2nd The keyboard or its cable could be bad, it will not necessarily quit until it goes completely out.

SOURCE: forget BIOS Password (Laptop - IBM Thinkpad Lenovo R60)

For that you need to reset factory defaults settings for bios.
For reset bios u have to open back side of your laptop then u find motherbord circuit there.
pull cmos cell on motherbord for 15 minute then it reset to defaults.
Also u can reset with jumper settigns read carefully on mother bord there is 1 jumper near cmos cell u read there " bios reset or clear"
It is on 1-2 position right now set it in 2-3 position then power up then all bios settings are reset.
then again set it in 1-2 its original position.

When pressing number on laptop its showing characters


From your description I must assume that if all other keyboard functions and keys work properly then the keyboard is faulty. For the number keys to print the upper case characters shown on those keys requires a shift key to be depressed or stuck. If all other keys work properly, replace the keyboard. Otherwise look for a stuck shift key. I have found keyboards for sale on Ebay.

Key board problem


Press FN (next to CTRL) and NmLk (probably above F11) simultaneously. This should return your keyboard to normal.
If that doesn't work, try SHIFT+NmLk and that may work as well.
