Laptop technician: sudipto_dutta, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 2 years ago

No, there is no need to pay any further if you do not want to pay. It seems it is asking for the deposite for the additional service.

Q5wtc model
Very small print
Laptop technician: sudipto_dutta, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 2 years ago

Thanks for the model no. of the keyboard of the laptop. There is FN key on the keyboard, look at the left side of the space bar just beside the windows logo key and most probably, you have to press the FN+F4 or F5 key to get the display on the monitor, please try and let me know.

Laptop technician: sudipto_dutta, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 2 years ago

No, you can do it now. But, you have to do it everytime you power on the laptop.

Neither work f4 or f5
Laptop technician: sudipto_dutta, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 2 years ago

Did you hold down the FN key while pressing the F4 or F5 key ?

Held it down for a few seconds.
Would any RESTORE process change this display problem
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
He restored to factory settings
Laptop technician: sudipto_dutta, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 2 years ago

If the screen is not physically broken then and you can see the gateway logo, as soon as you power on the laptop then, restore process can solve the problem.

I can't see screen at all . Is there a key combination to restore
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
FYI... The display on monitor worked on my toshiba laptop
Which is why I asked abt restore.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Restore on the gateway
Laptop technician: sudipto_dutta, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 2 years ago

You said that, you are getting the display on the external monitor and now you cannot see anything after the restore and now once more you wanted to know, how to restore, I am getting little bit confused at this point, if you are able to restore then, why do you want to restore once again ?

Ask Your Own Laptop Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Let me be clear.
We first used the gateway externally attached to the hp monitor
It worked UNTIL he decided to restore the gateway to FA TORY settings becuz it wals runNing so slow.
After restore of gateway, it would no longer display on external monitor. And so I can't see laptop screen or can I see on external HP monitor.
Laptop technician: sudipto_dutta, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 2 years ago

Are you able to see anything on the laptop monitor before the restore process ?
