Screen will not come on. says press func + 14 but

try F 4 on laptop You should also be able to see a very small screen icon on the F keys, like a small monitor , that should be the key to operate dual monitor
It should come on automatically if there is only one screen in operation
you are using the laptop keys correct? in a docking station you use a seperate keyboard those only have F12 but they do not affect the external operation You need to do this on the laptop keys not external keyboard

1qaz keys on my toshiba satellite a100 laptop are not working. I have changed the keyboard and they still do not work.

A keyboard sends "scan-codes" to the computer,
e.g., "user pressed ALT and has not yet released it,
user now pressed CTRL and has not yet release it,
user now pressed DEL and released it".

So, if you've changed keyboards, then the new keyboard _should_ be sending the correct scan-codes; it must be your computer's motherboard that is not properly interpreting the scan-codes. Ouch!
Replacing the motherboard is _not_ cheap.

Did you test it on a desktop computer?
If you didn't, or if you find that it does work on a desktop computer, the monitor is ok:
You laptopn is behaving like it is connected to a multimedia projector.

Connect the monitor to one of the laptops.

1. Depending on the laptop brand, locate the special [Function] key. Generally near the lower left keyboard and marked in blue (usually).
2. Press that [Fn] key and hold it down while also pressing the [CRT/LCD] key along the top of the keyboard one time. release both keys and wait a few seconds. The screen will come on. (The CRT/LCD key may have a different name or symbol)
3. repeat step #2 if it didn't come on. There are 3 modes, you have to get into the correct mode.
4. One mode will turn off your laptop screen, not to worry, press the sequence again and it will turn on again.

Hope this helps.

Hello, your numlock keys are ON, find your Num Lock button and press it off.
It can be a 2 button combination like FN(function button) + Num Lock button. Then it should work.
other way is to press numlock on your external keyboard and then disconnect the board. see if it works.
