Hi SimonRankin,

Most laptops have an option to switch between using the laptop's LCD screen, or a plugged in display with a VGA cable (Video Graphics Array, that Blue trapezoid connector cable).

Most often, it's Function + F8, although this varies between manufacturers and models. It should say "LCD/CRT" or have a small picture of a laptop versus an square with rounded edges.

If that doesn't do it, chances are you've managed to actually damage the on-board video card. Or potentially something worse. Try to get the external monitor to work, if that doesn't do it, I would say it should be sent back to a service center for more repairs.

Hope that helps.

Arrow Keys Not Working


Well, I don't have alot of info here from you; but maybe you or someone else spilled some liquid on the keyboard? Maybe you or someone else got mad at the laptop and hit the keys so hard they broke. (I did that once) But at any rate, if not check to make sure your arrow keys arent part of the numeric keypad. If they are, you'll have to set the num-lock to off to use them or else they will display numbers. If your laptop is like mine, the arrow keys are seperate. They might just have wore out. You can replace the keyboard for cheap (13$US - 15-17 Sterling Pounds) and its fairly easy to replace if you know a little about laptops. Seek on ebay or amazon to find a new keyboard if you think the keys are ruined. Thats about all I can tell you with the very little info you gave here.

Ti 84 plus screen faded away


If you cannot see anything on the screen, you may need to adjust the graphing TI 84 calculator contrast :

1. To darken the screen, press and release 2nd key, and then press and hold up-arrow key until the display is sufficiently dark.

2. To lighten the screen, press and release 2nd key, and then press and hold Down-arrow key until the display is sufficiently light.

Brand new laptop received for christmas. Screen is now black lights are on the keyboard and the hp is lighted on front.. please help how do i get my screen on?


Do you get anything on the screen before it loads windows? Did you before? If so then try the following:

Look at the function keys for the symbol that toggles display from laptop display to external monitor. On my keyboard it is F5 but it could be different on yours. Hold the Function key down then press the correct function key , ie F5 on your keyboard. You may have accidently hit the keys or tabs on the screen if your laptop has that feature. (after youre booted into windows).

If you see nothing at all when you turn on the machine --

Look at the display from the side to see if there's any light behind it. If there isn't your backlight could be out.

Plug in an external monitor. Does it get a picture? If not it could be the video card or the ram. It could also be the video driver if you get no display after booting into windows but see the logo at bootup.

Assuming this is the DV7 series laptop you picked when you posted there is a small wireless key above the keyboard(not embedded in the F keys) that shout be orange with the wireless picture displaying if it has been turned of.

press the key and wait about ten seconds and it should be fine.

If the key doen't turn blue then you may have a "real" problem, if it does you should be fine.

Function is not turning off


Try holding down the function key and hitting the numlock or scroll lock key, this is usually how you engage or disengage the laptops function keys on the keyboard . Most laptops have a light that will turn on and off when you do this, indicating that the funtion keys are in use.
