If you still have the tab that activates the switch they can sometimes be glued back on. The keyboard cover includes the power button. You can find them on ebay for 1/3 of what the are from a parts depot.

Testimonial: "Thank you very much. I'm not sure the part which broke off(very, very small) can be located inside the laptop. But if not, your suggestion on a replacement part on e-bay was very helpful and effective. Thanks again"

Mercedes benz G class transmission not engaging into gear


Check that the shifter cable is fully connected and plugged in. If everything is fine, you may want to check if the Transmission Control Solenoid is working.
If it's your actual shifter handle, the safety linkage attached the brake pedal might have broke or came off... to bypass that there is a small button you have to press that will manually disengage it, usually it's hidden under a small tab that lifts up revealing the button underneath. You might have to use a stick to reach it.

I have a Gateway laptop whose screen just broken and is cracked. However, I also do have an external Gateway monitor, model NO: FPD1730. I hooked up the external monitor to the laptop and it only works in...


Excuse me if I'm talking below you level of expertise...

With an external monitor on a laptop you usually have to activate the plug where you've connected the external monitor cable . This requires pressing 2 keys in combination, usually a FUNCTION button + a specific function key. Yeah, they're named almost the same thing, but I'll try to keep it straight.

On your keyboard's function keys (above the numeric keys typically) should be small pictures besides the standard F1, F2, etc. which are usually in white. You're looking for the picture that resembles a monitor. On my Thinkpad the small pictures are colored blue, and the monitor is on the F7 key. It so happens that my FUNCTION button (different than the function keys we were just talking about) which is located in the lower left of my keyboard is also blue. Yours might be in a different position, but I'm giving you an idea when to look.

When you find the Function Button, press and hold this key and the correct Function key (F1, F2, whatever). You might need to press this 1 or 2 times to get the correct monitor setting. I'm not exactly sure of the order but you'll activate the external monitor, then another combination press will activate both displays, then a 3rd will do another setting, then back to the beginning. If you miss it the first time just slowly press the combination until you get what you're looking for. Be patient, and press once every 5 seconds or so, giving the computer enough time to change its settings.

Hope this helps!

I need help to reset the car alarm. There is no keyless remote. It's a clifford alrm. It started fine then when i turn the car off the alarm light was blinking and now i can't start the car


Look under the dash for a little button that youll push to bypass the alarm. If not one you will need to disconnect the alarm sysem and remove it. It is useless to you anyway without the key pad

Multimedia system error


You can perform full reset after backup your data. Full reset or Hard reset can be done by holding reset and power button together and releasing it after 10 seconds. It will come up with confirmation to erase all data to set it to factory default. Once you choose "Yes" it will be out of box state. It might fix the issue. For Memory card data loss you can use your PC to retrieve back by using application such as Active Undelete which can be found at www.active-undelete.com

880 universal remote volume button broke. little rubber botton on inside that pushes the volume button on inside broken.face plate cracked and arrow button on left right underneath face broken and missing...


My volume button also broke (actually, the VOLUME UP function stopped working). Rather than trying to get the remote fixed, I found a different solution...
I reprogrammed the + key (bottom left of the remote) to be my new Volume UP function. You can do this by going to any of the activities you've already defined, and adding a custom button to the activity.
Choose the + button (it will probably not have an existing function), and tell it to use the Volume Up function of the component you normally use for volume. In my case, it was the Home Theater Receiver.
I hope that helps.

MARGINS: Left margin space or tab to where you want margin set and depress the mar L key. Sometimes the key has to be depressed as you hit the code key. If you want to move carrige to the left, go to margin hit margin release and bk space to where you want. Same with the right margin only use th R margin key. Code key usually keys have second message are in green, yellow or red. Use code key with the small print on the key to activate that function.... Good luck
