Hi. The colour on my HP/Compaq 6820s laptop is a bit dull in comparison to my second extended Samsung monitor. I want to adjust the colour settings on the laptop, but all I can find on the keyboard is...

If you right hand mouse click on your desktop picture, a menu will become available. Click on Screen resolution and then Advanced settings. There will be options inside that window to allow you adjustment of the display.
Hope that helps.

My Hp Compaq 6820s don't start when I press power button.

This simply means that the battery is dead. Pull the battery out and try to start it again (with the power adapter plugged in obviously). If it starts up, you need a new battery, if it does not start up you may have a bad power adapter or broken power jack.
