Fn and spacebar make icons really big

I have a Toshiba laptop. I was messing with the function key, and pressed the space bar with it. It seemed to make my icons, and everything big. It seems like the resolution has gotten really big. The icon on the spacebar has a box, and a plus sign on a magnifing glass. I tried right clicking on the desktop and properties to restore the resolution, but it keeps telling me that I have an error. How do I get the icons back to normal?

    I tried pressing fn + spacebar, and it did not do anything. My resolution is still very large.

The fn key changes the way the keys can be used the keys that have other pictures/icons on then are what they do when fn key is used. Have you tried to do fn and spacebar key again to revert the function.

Spacebar somewhat jammed


There may be something stuck under the bar like a crumb of biscuit or a bit of grit that stops the bar from free movement.

The far right and left ends of the spacebar do not work. In order to use the spacebar function, the direct middle of the button has to be pushed down.


You need to reposition (clip) the torssion bar under the spacebar key (a steel wire formed in a wide U shape), it is unhooked, call for a professionnal if you'r not sure how to do this as you may brake the plastic hinge if you don't know what you'r dooing...

Dont know how to control the volume, i cannot find my manual


Most of the time their are multiple ways to do this.

1. On the speaker in the lower right hand corner left click and a volume bar appears. Slide it up and down. It should be adjust to 75% IMO.

2. On your keys there should be symbols that look like speakers that should match the color of you "fn" key. Press and hold the fn key and then press the corresponding speaker key to increase or decrease the volume.

3. There may be a rotary volume control on the front of the laptop case. It's as simple as turning it to increase or decrease it.

On the volume bar in windows verify that the muted in unchecked.

HOW DO I TURN ON THE WIRELESS CAPABILITY ON MY HP LAPTOP?


All depends on the Model laptop... Most All DV Series HP Laptops have a physical switch that you turn on and off (a slide switch).. It is located on the front, just under the lip of the touchpad on the left side... You can look on the front and both sides for a WiFi switch...

If you do not have a switch.....

You need to use your Function Key Combination..

The Fn Key is located down by your space bar to the left of it...It is your Function Key....

Pressing this and a corresponding F key (F1-F2-F3-F4.. etc...)

Look at the F keys, You will notice Icons as well on the individual keys.. usually in blue or grey color....

When The Fn (Function) Key Is Held Down - You can acces the secondary key options...

You Should See A WiFi Icon on one of them keys...

Press Fn and the "F" Key that has the WiFi icon Together...

My laptop is Fujitsu Siemens AMILO Pro Celeron. somehow the sound is not coming... i dont know why??? i tried my best to get to know the problem... but nothing seems to be helpful


Hello,

There are four ways to turn sound down or mute it on a laptop.

In the Windows Desktop there is normally an icon of a speaker near the digital clock on the bottom far right. You can rest or click your mouse over this icon and a volume slider pops up onscreen. In this pop up the slider can be turned down or the mute box checked.

A laoptop also has special function keys activated by the Fn key near the left side of the spacebar. This Fn key has letter colors that are different than the rest of the keys. Pressing and holding this Fn key and also using another key activates the Special Functions. Usually pressing Fn +PgUp or PgDn and or End will raise lower or mute the sound in that order. the Pg Up keys, etc. have other lettering on them to indicate the special function. Often this is just and icon.

With these hints you may be able to get your sound back on. If not, tell me how and under what circumstance you lost the sound. It could be a deeper setting in your laptop.

Regards,
Worldvet
