    hp elitebook touchpad let button Fn

    The left mouse button is sticking down a little and not returning to the level of the adjacent key. This is a mechancial problem as the functions of the button works fine but it just does not return to where it should be. If I jiggle it around a little I can get it to return that last little bit.

A good check of whether the Fn key is working is to display the system information as follows...
1. briefly press Fn key, and then briefly press the Esc key
or alternatively...
2. Press and hold down the Fn key, briefly press the Esc key, and then release both at the same time.
This should display the version of the system BIOS as the BIOS date or system ROM version number.
If this doesn't happen, then either one or both Fn and Esc keys are not working. In any case since your laptop is new, it should be covered by a 30-day exchange policy from the place of purchase and you should just take it back for an exchange. If you can't get it exchanged and the purchase was on your credit card, you should have purchase coverage from the credit card company as well.

How to install win xp 32bit on my hp elitebook 8440p?


XP is no longer supported, so purchase an Old Stock OS XP disc. Place it in the DVD drive and bot from it. You will have to manually destroy any newer OS otherwise Windows will block it! When installed, go to Hp's web site and download the system drivers for your machine.
Have fun!

How do I screen shot from my hp elitebook if I am running windows vista?


You need to press PrtScr or Print Screen button to capture the screen to the clip board. I believe on your laptop you need to hold the fn key down to select it. On the bottom left of the keyboard is a key that has fn on it. Any key on your keyboard that has a second function will need the fn key to access this second key function. PrtScr button should be on the top row right hand side of the keyboard.

Hold down the fn key and press the PrtScr key and then you can paste it into a document or paint or whatever. The PrintScreen function works in versions of windows I have ever used, from Windows 3.11 for workgroups to Windows 8.

This sounds like an issue in the power settings, you can get to them through the display options (right click desktop, go to properties, look for power settings)
