My dell vostro 2510 won't power on, when i press power button to turn on the pc , the power light turn on for about 5 sec then it turn off itself,


Try this to see if can give us some codes with it's on board diagnostics. Hold down the function button of your laptop and then the power button while still holding down the Fn/Function button on the left side of the keyboard. See if this gives you either an error message on your screen or, flashing lights above your keyboard. Pay attention, write down what lights where lit up what ones flashed, etc. This is to diagnose if the LCD isn't working. Comment back if you get either the light code or the error code on the screen. IF nothing happens try holding the Fn/Function button on the left side of keyboard and holding the F4 button, see if that makes any lights flash above your keyboard.

What is the fn key


The fn key is the function key. I am sure that helps a ton. The fn key works like a shift key, changing the buttons marked fn, like volume, screen brightness, etc. The use is that you press and hold the function key, and press teh function button and then release both.
Common uses are to turn off the mousepad, while typing, and to set screen brightness while under battery....

I have a HP laptop I like to printscrren couple of page How can I do it please !


On a laptop, the print screen button is designated by "prt sc" or "prt scn" -- look for a button in the upper right portion of your keyboard. You will need to press and hold the the Function (usually "fn") key then tap (press and release) the button with the designation for print screen on it. This takes a "snapshot" of whatever is on your entire screen and temporarily saves it to the clipboard (like a "copy" does when you copy and paste something). If you wish to just capture the active window, hold the Function key, hold the alt key, then tap the print screen key. This only works on some laptops, not all. The easiest way to get to the picture you just created is to open the program Paint. Once open, press and hold ctrl (control) and tap "v" - this will paste the snapshot of the screen or window. You can crop, circle things, etc in Paint, then save the file or print it.

Most likely you need to re-sync the device

  1. Resynchronizing the keyboard and/or mouse causes the devices to reconnect to the receiver using new identification numbers. Use the following steps to resync the devices:
    NOTE: The following connection sequence must be completed within 60 seconds. If the sequence is not done in 60 seconds, start over.
    1. With the receiver plugged in, press and hold the Connect button on the receiver until the activity LED flashes.
      NOTE: Some HP computers have receivers built into the front of the computer; such as TouchSmart 700 Series PCs and Digital Entertainment Centers. Look for a small connect button built into the case. If you have a TouchSmart 500 or 800 Series PC, the receiver plugs into a USB port on the underside of the case and does not have a connect button - skip this step. Figure 4: An example of a receiver c01065862.jpg 1 - Connect button and LED activity light Figure 5: Another example of a receiver c00526313.jpg 1 - Connect button 2 - Num Lock LED 3 - Alpha Lock LED 4 - Scroll Lock LED 5 - Activity LED
    2. Press and hold the recessed connect button on the underside of the keyboard until the activity light on the receiver stops flashing. When you release the button, make sure it does not stick in the depressed position.
      NOTE: If problems persist after resetting AND there is another wireless keyboard or mouse near, use these steps again, holding down the keyboard or mouse button for ten seconds. Doing so may give the keyboard or mouse a new ID number in case the other keyboard or mouse was using the same number.
    3. Press the Connect button on the receiver again until the activity light flashes.
    4. Press and hold the recessed button on the underside of the mouse until the activity light on the receiver stops flashing. Make sure the connect button does not stick in the depressed position.
  2. If your mouse and keyboard have a USB receiver, unplug the USB receiver, wait 10 seconds, and then insert into another USB port - preferably into a USB port that is closer to the mouse and keyboard. For example, if the USB receiver was plugged into a USB port on the back of the computer, unplug it and plug it into a front USB port.

Hope this helps!! Good luck!!

Hi,

1)Verify that the batteries are correctly installed in the keyboard and mouse. If possible, use a fresh set of alkaline batteries. 2)Reset the keyboard and mouse connections : --With the receiver plugged in, press and hold the Connect button on the receiver until the activity LED flashes. --Press and hold the recessed connect button on the underside of the keyboard until the activity light on the receiver stops flashing. When you release the button, make sure it does not stick in the depressed position. --Press the Connect button on the receiver again until the activity light flashes. --Press and hold the recessed button on the underside of the mouse until the activity light on the receiver stops flashing. Make sure the connect button does not stick in the depressed position. --Make sure that the receiver is at least 20 centimeters (8 inches) away from other electrical devices (computer, monitor, keyboard, etc.). --Remove any other objects that are between the keyboard, mouse, and the receiver, especially speakers. Hope this should resolve the Issue. Thank you.
