Hello Bobster079,

Here is a couple of things to try:

1) Get into the Bios and set it to default setting (may be F9 button), then save setting. Then reboot and try.

if this does not work, then move in to next step.

2) Hold down and press the "fn" button and press the "Scroll Lock" button. This works like a toggle switch.

Hope this is helpfull and good luck.

There is a trick to resetting the CineDash. Remove all power (turn it off and remove the battery) for more than 10 seconds.

That gives it a sort of manual reboot.
