I was quite upset, as I thought that I had broken the key initially... however, after doing what you described--your fix worked beautifully... yeay, and thank you again. I haven't tried the sound thing yet... but am about to begin that in a few. I couldn't wait to thank you.... :)

Could it be that you've accidentally hit some keystrokes that placed your monitor into the mode for viewing it on an outside source such as a tv?
On my Dell Inspiron 1524 laptop, if I press the FN and F8 (CRT/TV) keys, it temporarily disables my monitor since it assumes that I have a TV connected. Since you didn't list the Make and Model of your laptop, it may be on a different key. The FN key initiates a special function when it's pressed with the appropriate key. If you press the combination again, it should eventually allow you to see your monitor again.
I hope that will solve your problem. If it doesn't you may wish to write again.
I believe you're having problem with the Operating System on your computer. Unfortunately, Lenovo will not provide a product key for the Operating System since the an OEM version. What you can do is reinstall the Operating System using the One Key Recovery Sofware or the Recovery Disc that came with the computer. Follow these steps for you to be able to reinstall the Operating System using the One Key Recovery.
1. Turn off the computer.
2. Press the little button near the power button, it usually do have a drawing of an icon that looks like a horse shoe or a headset.
3. There will be a window that will appear which do have three option, One Key Antivirus, One Key Recovery and System Setup. Choose One key Recovery.
4. There will be another window that will appear which do have two option, Restore from initial backup and Restore from user backup,Choose Restore from initial back up
5. It will asked you if you want to continue, Just click on OK or YES.
6. Once done, Reboot the computer.
Hope this information will help. Thank you for using FixYa!
You may have broken a plastic "hinge", more like a tab or clip. Try taking it off again and examine the underside of the key. If it looks ok, try putting it back on. If a plastic tab/clip is broken on the left side, you should be able to go to a small computer repair shop and get a replacement key for it. That way you don't have to replace the keyboard.
Thank you for your supported.actually the problem has been corrected by my own last 3 or 4 days before where i solved it the problem by installation back system recovery the day before my laptop was affected to that problem.
Any way, i wish to thank you once again about your initial respond to resolved my problem.
On your laptop, press and hold the <Fn> key while powering the system on. This will initiate a diagnostic routine to check your hardware.Since this is a new purchase, call Dell about this issue and relay results of diagnostics, even if no errors are detected and diags pass. Your responses are intended to improve the level of service provided. Please show your appreciation by rating your experience. Thank You.
well either it doesnt have i mic built in or its been broken or filled with dirt so no 1 can hear you. do you now where the mic is positioned on the laptop if so try cleaning it and if it doesnt work you might have to buy a mic to plug into it.
