Headlights won't turn on in my 1999 ford mustang gt


Sounds as though you have an exposed electrical connection that's either getting splashed from the tires, or the moisture is creating a temporary disconnection. This can happen, but once it dries it will resume working. I would have your electrical system checked. I would also have your headlight switch checked for a possible short.

How do i get my laptop screen thr right way up i pressed somthing and its gone upside down


You probably flipped the screen orientation (rotated it).

For some versions of Windows (XP and Vista), try pressing Control (Crtl)+Alt+Up arrow (press the three keys together). You can also try the other arrow keys with the Crtl+Alt keys. The Crtl and alt keys are both usually in the row with the space bar. On a full-size keyboard, there are two Ctrl keys on the ends of the row and the alt keys are closest to the space bar.

Otherwise, right click on the Desktop (where there are no programs or icons) and choose Graphics Options > Rotation. Another place to check is right click on the desktop and choose Screen Resolution > Orientation. This is a shortcut to accessing the display properties in the Control Panel. Click Start > Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization > Display > Screen Resolution. For a widescreen monitor, choose Landscape.

I hope this helps.

(The ctrl+alt+arrow key doesn't work on my Win7 desktop but does work on the laptop. The Orientation change from the control panel works on both.)

I get a pop window saying CONTRAST 100 .This comes every time . what should i do to stop this pop up window ? is this due to virus?


This problem is probably related to dust/moisture or a stucked sticky control key on your monitor. Perhaps the contrast button is stucked - press the button a few times to try and release it or use a hair dryer/dry compress air to blow the keys if it is due to moisture. (Happens during raining seasons).

Hope it helps.

That is very common problem and there is no one-best-sollution for it since they are tons of possible reasons.

Possible sollutions:
#1 close all programs
#2 switch off->switch ON pc
#3 scan for possible malware using antivirus software
#4 try using keyboard shortcuts crtl+c = copy or ctrl-x = cut

Leave rate if I helped you, thanks!!

Igniter Stopped working


Igniter could be shot. Take out igniter and put near something metal. Push button to see if sparks occur. If not igniter is no good. If this works, the end of wire that is near wear the igniter sparks to light grill could be to far away from metal, bend to get closer to metal, so it will spark, or end could be covered with grease, clean end and try for spark again.

Key pad


If you can not use your Ctrl, alt delete keeys before the operating system loaads, then your motherboard is the problem. Replace the mainboard, and this issue will go away. Many of these units have this same issue. However, if you can use them before the operating system loads, then reload your os or attempt to repair it using your installation cd. To use the keys before the os loads, right after the dell logo appears, immediatly hit crtl alt delete. and your system should respond. LePro DCSE
