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.)

Toughbook CF-29 computer died


Torrential rain storm left out in it running? I'm sorry to say there is only one thing you can do for this laptop. "Do not turn it on at all again" Take the battery out of it and take it completely apart and use a blow dryer and dry everything out. "Everything" you may already be to late. Board may be shorted out and fried I hate to say it.
So take it apart piece by piece and top case and bottom case and dry it completely out. So that there is nothing wet or moisture is dissipated and gone. That is the only thing you can do to salvage this machine other than a new board, rain and left running in the rain is pretty easy to figure out that you may have ruined your computer leaving it running in the rain. "Lets hope this will work for you" I would be pleased to know if it did solve this matter drying it completely out." Do not power it up again until this is finished. John

In some programs, when i try to write letters, it writes numbers... but when i press and hold crtl it writes letter again.... wen i stop holding crtl, again writes with numbers


It sounds like your number lock has been turned on. If you hold your Function key down, which is usually displayed on the key as "Fn" and located at the bottom left of the keyboard by the control key and find the key in the top right that says "Num Lck" and press that, it should turn the number lock off.

What the number lock does is change some of your keys into a 10 key number pad, turning the number lock off disables this.

How do I shift to the blue key functions on the keyboard


I've run into this a lot myself and personally find it annoying more than useful. While typing, your punctuation keys suddenly switch to their french functions. By defaul, Vista assigns a keyboard shortcut fo changing input languages.

This shortcut is ctrl+shift - a very easy combination to press by mistake. To solve this problem, just press crtl+shift until you're back to english. You can change this shortcut or disable it all together.

Open the control panel then click "change keyboards or other input methods" under "clock, language and region". In the window that pops up, click "change keyboards..." then select the "advanced key settings" tab. This is where you can edit and disable language related shortcuts. To change one, click on the profile and then click "change key sequence". Under "switch keyboard layout", select "unassigned" to disable that shortcut.

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
