My laptop recently crashed and since I reinstalled everything, the external volume up and volume down buttons now give an on-screen display when I use them. This is irritation when running full-screen applications. Is there any way I can remove this on-screen volume display when pressing these buttons?

If your HTC HD2 is frozen and a soft reset doesn't work, this guide shows how to restore your handset to its factory settings with a hard reset
There are two ways you can perform a hard reset on your HTC HD2. The first is best if your phone is still operational. If it has crashed and you can't get a response from it, you're better to try option two. Performing a factory reset via the settingsmenu
On the Home screen's Settings tab, select Menu - All Settings - System - Clear Storage
Enter 1234 and tap Yes to confirm
Performing a factory reset using phone buttons
If your phone has crashed and won't respond, you'll have to perform a battery pull to power the phone off. Simply take off the back cover and remove the battery. Otherwise, just turn your HTC HD2 off using the power button.
With your phone powered off, press and hold the volume up and volume down buttons
While holding the volume buttons, press the power button and then release it
When you see a warning message on screen, release the volume up and volume down buttons
Press the volume up button to perform the reset when prompted, or press any other button to cancel the reset
I had same problem with mine found out to do a hard reset. Make sure power is turned off. Then while holding volume down button hold power button at same time until you get factory reset screen. Use Volume up/down button to navigate and use power button to select option. You will lose everything as it is a factory reset, but know way around this, that I am aware of. Hope this Helps and Good Luck.
Make sure you backup your files by connecting it to a PC (if you have access to one) via USB cable,you will have to do a hard reset, otherwise there is no other way to get past the lockscreen (unless you have a recovery option with your email address)
Below is the process to tell you how you can hard reset your Samsung tablet (should work with any tablet):
Ensure that the Samsung tablet is powered off.
Press the Power and the Volume Up button together till the device displays the start-up logo.
Once the logo is displayed, release the buttons and wait till the device enters the Android system recovery mode.
On the displayed screen, use Volume Down button to go to the wipe data/factory reset option (Volume Up and Volume Down buttons are used to highlight the displayed options on the Android system recovery screen).
Once the option is highlighted, press the Power button to select the option. (Pressing the Powerbutton in Android system recovery mode selects the highlighted option.)
On the next screen, press the Volume Down button multiple times till the Yes -- delete all user data option is highlighted.
Press the Power button to hard reset the Samsung tablet device while clearing the dalvik cache along with the process.
Once your device is hard reset and rebooted successfully, you will see that the unlock pattern obstruction is also gone, and you can now set a new unlock pattern on your Samsung tablet.
restart your computer repeatedly tapping the f8 key to enter safe mode while the screen is black once in safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you to attempt to repair your computer
Windows Advanced Options Menu
Please select an option:
Safe Mode Safe Mode with Networking Safe Mode with Command Prompt
Enable Boot Logging Enable VGA mode Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked) Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows domain controllers only) Debugging Mode
Start Windows Normally Reboot Return to OS Choices Menu
Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice
you could select the safe mode option and see if you can get the extended desktop again but first you will have to find out why it crashed
if you select last known good configuration that worked it might give you an idea
Are there any error messages displayed? Does the laptop switch off, or does it still remain on? (are lights etc. on?).
Also, have you connected to an external monitor recently?
I suggest attempting to connect to a monitor or TV using the S-Video or VGA connectors on your laptop, this should get the login screen to show up.
You would probly want to completely reformat and reinstall your copy of XP, if it is already crashing on a fresh copy, it most likely didn't install correctly. Make sure you format first. You can do this before you run your installation. Reboot your computer and hit f8, select the option that says command prompt with networking. when the screen comes up with the C: type in there vol you will need the volume label to format, it will display this for you and make a note of it. At the next C: type in there C: format it will ask you to enter the volume label, do this and hit enter. It will then ask you if you are sure you want to delete all data, type y and hit enter. It will go through the format process. Enter your XP cd into the drive and reboot your computer, you should now be able to reinstall windows with no previous errors or versions already installed. Hope this helps!
Hold down the Fn button and press F8. Try this pushing F8 once. then try it again pushing F8 twice. And so on. The F8 button switches the display between the lcd monitor on the laptop and the external display. There should be an option in there to display on both at once.
Hey there SeanJohn79, have you tried hooking an external monitor to your laptop. You can move the video output back and forth, from external, LCD + external, LCD using Fn + F7. Hopefully this will allow you to see the necessary info for diagnosing the problem. Good Luck. Keep us posted! In case you are not aware, these are some display related key functions:
Fn + F3 = turn off lcd
Fn + F8 =Switch computer screen size
Fn + F12 =Hibernation mode, power for 4 secs releases.
Fn + F4 = Standby mode, press Fn key to return to normal
If you haven't tried switching some of these, give it a shot.
