Satellite C70D - A - 11 d function key turn off after use

Hi all

I have a Satellite C70D-A - 11 d... When I use once key FN to do a print screen or use the Zoom screen on the space key...

I am not able to use the 1 to 4 Keynumbers or space to enter a space between two words... it always changes between the larger screen solution or the normal solution...

I can only change the FN key after changing the settings in the settings of display and after a reboot...
So I can't use FN without a reset with the F1 to the use of the F12 key and a reboot...

Normally the FN key works only if it is pressed... If this is the normal operation of the keys 1 to 4 or F1 to F12 will work if configured in the settings, or not?

What should do?

Kind regards


First of all, you can change between the special function key mode (without pressing the FN key) or normal (standard) mode (Fn hold first of all use the standard functions of F1 - F12).

This function can be changed in the BIOS.
In BIOS go to Advanced-> system configuration

Check this option.

  • Satellite 2410 603 run diskcheck and then turns off after startup

    When I turn on my PC it runs a check disk and tells that the following file is not valid: windows/prefetch\matcli.exe-061DBA
    After the disk check, it starts up to the main screen and then stops as if I had pushed the power switch.

    Is there a way to solve this problem without the recovery running disk (and thus losing all my data)?

    Hi guy,

    MATCLI. EXE is a component of AOL Broadband and is usually optional (i.e. it is not necessary to run Windows).

    The PREFETCH folder is from which your laptop try to play the file. It is an area where Windows stores copies of files that are usually loaded during the start-up phase, so that they can be pre-loaded in the cache, which allows Windows to start up more quickly.

    It is advisable to clear the contents of the PREFETCH folder on a basis regular (Microsoft recommends a monthly purge of prefetch contents), but you can just delete the folder PREFETCH itself since Windows will allocate a new start-up.

    Since you can't actually start Windows to delete the PREFETCH content I suggest that you try to start your laptop in 'SAFE' mode, since this will only start with the minimum of Windows files. If this succeeds, then delete the PREFETCH folder before you try to start Windows normally again.

    As a final thought, it might well be a corruption on your hard drive for some reason any and it would be a good idea to run a utility to check hard disk in order to assess the State of your hard drive (using CHKDSK from Windows or a third party utility such as Norton Disk Doctor).

  • Satellite Pro L10 will not start - green turns off after 3 seconds


    Having a L10 (PSL15E-01J018EN) and when you press the button, the led ON / STANDBY on the front lights up green for about 3 seconds and then past off the coast. It accomplishes this task for the sector or on battery and there is no other life. Anyone know what may be the problem?

    Thank you


    Hello Melv

    Remove the battery, connect your laptop to the power adapter only and try to turn on the L10. If this lets wait a few minutes and put the battery in place and watch if the laptop works as usual.

  • Option key turned off after instalation unsuccessful


    After a failed install operation from a CD (software installation crashed and hung), I restarted the operation of a folder.

    However, when I get to the turnkey options, only partial screen key and manual options are available; turnkey option is grayed out and there is an explanation saying that MySQL is already installed. But it's not.

    Please, how to get back the complete turnkey option?

    Thanks a lot for all ideas.


    Hi Marcos,

    Could you please confirm whether or not your MySQL service works? It does not work by default.

    In addition, LiveCycle Configuration Manager displays the port 3306 # by default, you must specify the port that you entered during the installation of turnkey.

  • Satellite A60-712 - turn off after 2-3 seconds

    Hello everyone.

    I am trying to fix this Satellite A60-712; He came to me without feeder, but I found a compatible and it seems to work: CC in LED lights up and the battery starts to charge.

    My problem is that this starts Mobile for awhile, radiator begins to turn, all the lights are normally, but, all of a sudden everything turns off after 2-3 seconds. I have observed that this machine has only one slot of free RAM and noted that it has integrated the module memory motherboard; that would be the problem? Or another reason?

    Could someone help me?
    Thank you.


    > it came to me without feeder, but I found a compatible
    Can you please test it with a Toshiba original AC/DC adapter? The same thing is happening?

    If the laptop has already integrated memory motherboard there is no problem. Alternatively, you can use the laptop without additional RAM module.

    In the worst cases, you need professional help of an authorized service provider. :(

  • Satellite A100-812: screen brightness does not not & screen turns off after a while

    Some power management features do not work after a bios update (5.90).
    The display brightness can be changed in the power manager, or the top menu system. In the power manager, the cursor can be moved, but the brightness is not set. Toshiba menu system appears to hang on trying to change the brightness with F6 - F7 and won't move the cursor.

    In addition, the screen does not turn off after the set amount of minutes in the power manager.

    What is going on? How can this be repaired?
    Thanks in advance.


    Some questions; Why you have updated the BIOS?
    Are you sure you used the right BIOS?

    In my opinion you shouldn't t to update anything if the laptop works properly!

    However, try to access the BIOS, set the default settings and save the settings before exiting the BIOS.
    If this does not help, I would pick up the laptop with the Toshiba Recovery CD.

    Good bye

  • Satellite A30 turns off after a few minutes (set temp)

    Anyone know if there is a temp for the A30 laptop parameter. My laptop turns off after a few minutes or alternative suggestions

    Thank you

    Hi Waseem,

    Dust accumulation is not in the fans themselves, but in the space between the fans and the CPU radiator, where it is trapped by the matrix of cooling.

    The technique of using a hose of vacuum cleaner against the fan grids is designed to suck the dust outside in front of the fans without having to dismantle the radiator.

    Obviously, you have just as much suction as possible in order to remove any dust, it is therefore important to isolate grids of aspiration air with a cloth.

  • When listening to the music of Grooveshark, the sound turns off after a minute.

    When listening to the music of Grooveshark, the sound turns off after a minute.  Must press the key or the mouse to re-activate.  I turned off the screen saver.  Cut off.  Grooveshark said that they have no control over that, but the operating system.  Can someone help me with this?


    Try the following steps.

    Method 1:

    Sometimes a Web site you visit doesn't look like you expect it. Images may not appear, menus may be out of place, and text boxes may be blurred together. This can be caused by a compatibility problem between Internet Explorer and the site that you are. When a site is not compatible with Internet Explorer, you'll see the compatibility view button in the address bar. You can activate only display Internet Explorer compatibility for the office.

    Use compatibility mode in Internet Explorer:

    Method 2:

    I would say to change the mode of Internet Explorer 9 browser.

    Steps to follow:

    a. open Internet Explorer, press the F12 function key.

    (b) in the part of developers, click browser mode and click on Internet Explorer 9.

    If the Web site uses flash player, try to uninstall and reinstall and check if it helps.

    It will be useful.

  • After the upgrade from Office 2007 to Ofice 2010 on my Vista, then my computer turns off after being idle for a while.

    After upgrade Office 2007 to Office 2010 on my Vista, then my computer turns off after being idle for a while. When I turn on my computer, I get the splash screen indicating that Windows has finished unexpectedly and I would like to start in safe mode or normally (pluss a couple more choice...).

    Appears not to occur if there is activity going on--as if do me some work or have itunes playing music or I'm just surfing the internet. Curiously, it seems not to happen if I close Internet Explorer and Outlook.

    I shot all automatic updates for Windows Vista (32 bit) and Microsoft Office.

    Hi B Odd Andersen,

    I want to clarify if your computer seems to be sleeping or it completely closed after being idle for a while.

    Method 1: If the computer is in power saving mode, check if you can wake the computer from this State by moving the mouse or pressing any key on the keyboard.

    Method 2: Change the power to another and check to see if the problem persists
    Change, create, or delete a power plan (scheme)

    Method 3: check the logs in event viewer for more information on auto-off down

    Open event viewer

    What are the information in event logs? (Event Viewer)

    Note: For your safety and security, it is not recommended to disable Windows Update.
    Activate the update or disable automatic

  • Computer Toshiba laptop turns off after 3 seconds

    I can't understand what is happening with my computer, but I hope that this information will help you. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    There are 3 computers involved. One is a Toshiba laptop Satellite L300D Vista I had in December 2008 and the other two are Toshiba Satellite M110 XP portable computers that we got in December 2006 I think.

    The problem started with the Vista. It stops just one day and when I tried to turn it back on, it would show the Toshiba screen for a few seconds and then die. He was the life of the battery. Tried everything, could not, so I have restored the default computer. After it's on, I loaded my music in my external hard drive and a few days later, he crashed again. I restored it again and load my music back in, and then a few days later, he crashed again. Now when I try to restore it, it does not accept the restore disc. The hard drive flashes orange several times and the disc not spin fast enough to start doing anything.

    I decided to forget the vista computer, I had a year and a half... And started using my xp computer is a few years old. I've ONLY used to browse Craigslist (after I started using it instead of my Vista computer for a few days, after that the Vista) and not load any music in there. This computer has worked since then, but about a week after the death of my vista, my xp now has the same problem. It turns on for a while and then turns off immediately. Since they are the two Toshibas, they can use the same chargers so I would use the charger that comes with the vista or another, that I got off eBay a few years ago. Been using two wires forever and then everything suddenly this question not sure that it of a problem with the power or not, but one thing I noticed was my vista computer would make a rattling noise from inside the computer only when has been plugged in the charger from eBay, and I noticed my xp making the same sound as that connected with the charger from eBay just before you die too.

    My brother also has a toshiba satellite m110 xp laptop, and we tried a few things with the vista computer to try to make it work. A site offered to take the RAM and try to turn it on. Nothing that's happened. We took the ram from my brothers computer which works very well and put it in the vista. Nothing happened. We took the hard drive from her computer and put it in the vista and the computer DID start up (which was great cause I've not seen on in about a month) but it started up to a blue screen. Put us the hard drive in my brothers xp and the computer was working fine... For a few hours. Now the computer will not start correctly and we are trying to restore his computer but couldn't find the restore disc. Her hard drive was in my computer literally 15 seconds and his computer is now toast.

    I don't care about my laptop toshiba satellite m110 xp, but I want a solution for my toshiba laptop satellite L300D vista, and I also want to get my brothers running again because I ruined. I don't know much about computers, but my guess is that there is nothing wrong with the ram or hard drives, but something else in my vista computer that is ruining the hard drives. That still doesn't explain why my XP computer is turn off after a few seconds suddenly well. The only thing that the Vista and my XP have in common, is that they used the same power cords (which always worked fine)

    If anyone can help me out or point me in the right direction, which
    would be AMAZING! Thank you very much for your time

    If you have problems with the Toshiba recovery media, you will need to contact Toshiba.

    It's the Toshiba recovery process.

    Each manufacturer has their own particular recovery process.

    And as it is now failing to do recovery required, they would be the best people to contact about this.

  • The computer screen does not turn off after the specified power Options

    I tried several ways on trying to turn off my monitor of my laptop through the options of food and the use of some applications such as nircmd but nothing works every time. I'm sure it can be a program I am not using a device. I have a wireless mouse plugged into a USB port, but I know that's not what is keeping the PC awake, as always happens when it is not plugged. The thing that bothers me is I don't know how to identify this process shut off and I tried to put end as many process I can safely or those that I am knowledgeable in the subject to close. I would really like this feature back. Thanks in advance for the answers and ask if all the details are needed.

    I understood what was the 'problem '. It turns the screen of my laptop never turns off if my laptop is installed on a sloping surface, because it assumes that I'm working on it. When I went to bed my laptop on a flat level surface, is power does work normally, as reduces the brightness of the screen to the bottom, then turns off after a while. I guess it must be a form any a single function on my laptop. Thanks for all your answers.

  • HP DV6-6B25TX turn off after 10 to 15 seconds, regardless of the power of the battery or power supply


    MY DV6-6B25TX is cutting off after 10-15 seconds, regardless of the battery power or AC power.

    Here's the complete scenario of what happened in recent weeks:--

    Two weeks back I was using the laptop with the power adapter is plugged in for charging, the battery got charged up to 99% then it stopped charging and display the battery icon text, "plugged in, not charging".

    A return of the week, the battery was 20%, after plugging in the charger, always the same message "Plugged in, no charging current".

    Now the laptop does not meet the key power when the battery is inserted.

    If I remove the battery and back again, it starts without pushing the power button and turns off after 10 seconds, well before Windows starts.

    She stops even on the Bios screen, OS is not definitely the question.

    When I plug in charger and press the power button / stop, the same thing, i.e. starts and shutts off after 10 to 15 seconds, regardless of the BIOS or Windows startup screen.

    I removed the ram and but again, but the problem still persists.

    Also there is no issue of overheating due to dust, as I've barely used the laptop for a few hours, the phone is about 6 months and under warranty.

    Please advice ASAP.

    Thanks in advance.

    Honestly, something prevents the battery charge. Computer laptop closing seconds after that reinsert the battery is a good indication the battery just is not getting charged. This could be a battery failure, charger, port, or in rare cases of charge motherboard.

    Since it's under warranty, I recommend you contact HP support that there is no easy solution for this on the forums. It's a hardware problem.

    The number of the Canada and the United States support is 1-800-474-6836.
