Function keys


Enter BIOS by pressing F2 or DEL or F10 (try all), and see if there is a Function key option. Change it, save and exit. If everything else is working fine, you can also try to push and hold Fn key and then press a function key.

Broken function keys on gateway NV57H13u


If you are sure they were working yesterday then roll your system back to a day before yesterday by using System Restore. System Restore will allow you to select a Restore Point (date and time) before you started having the problem. System Restore does not delete your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs (unless the program was installed after the restore point you selected). Click Start/Program or All Programs. Click Accessories/System Tools/System Restore. In windows 7 just click Start and in the search box type: System Restore then look up at the returned search results and click on System Restore.

System Recovery on the other hand will delete everything and set your system back to when you first purchased it.

I've been at this all day and still have'nt gotten my laptop to reset to a factory default setting. Can you please guide me through this process, step by step. Thankyou.


You can always restore the computer to a point when it was working fine.
For a laptop when you say factory defaults we've two things
1)Factory defaults on the Bios - as soon as u turn on the laptop we press F8 key or DEL(depends on the brand of the laptop) to get to the BIOS and you've an option to revert to the factory defaults.
It is advisable not touch the BIOS if you are not sure about this firmware
2)The operating system (lik windows xp,vista & 7) there is nothing called factory defaults for this all we've is a installation of the Operating system itself. However we can revert or restore back to last know good configuration mode.


How to start your computer by using the Last Known Good Configuration feature To start your computer by using the Last Known Good Configuration feature, follow these steps:
  1. Start your computer.
  2. When you see the "Please select the operating system to start" message, press the F8 key.
  3. When the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, use the ARROW keys to select Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked), and then press ENTER.
  4. If you are running other operating systems on your computer, use the ARROW keys to select Microsoft Windows XP, and then press ENTER

I've just installed my webcam on my old laptop but still noone can see me. the picture shows a cam with a cross on the right side. Noh, what do I need to do to make it work?


Since you said old I'm going to guess it's running windows xp?If this is the case click start, then control panel, click system, then click hardware the first choice will be device manager open this look for yellow or red triangles. If it's there click on it try and update driver, let windows use internet to search. If this doesn't work use the model number off your camera to search online for the driver. If you need more help of it you aren't using windows xp please add more details to this post and I will try to help.

FN keys don't work on Sony VAIO VGN-SZ18GP


The solution is as follows, which worked for me:

- Install Windows 7
- let it update all the drivers that it needs to
- Install additional Sony drivers that you need (XP drivers work just fine, but make sure to install them in Administrator mode, so, Run as Administrator), such as camera, fingerprint scanner, etc
- Install the Notebook Control Device Driver (without this the other software does nothing)
- Sony Utilities DLL
- Sony Shared Library

* restart computer *

- Sony Video Shared Library
- SUS (Setting Utility Series)

* restart computer *

- VES (VAIO Event Service)

After this one the Fn keys will start to work. The S1 and S2 keys don't work due to something to do with UAC (but I don't need them anyway)

- VAIO Control Centre (will allow you to change what the S1 and S2 keys do, even though you can't use them :) )

That's it and it worked for me.
