Lenovo 11e E/Edge :: Disable F1-F12 Keys Notification On E420

Jan 24, 2013

I have an E420, I use the functions keys F1-F12 100 times more than I do for volume, monitor, etc.  I find it annoying and frustrating that when I do decide I want to change the volume I always get a pop that prompts me to change the behavior. How can I disable this annoying popup without losing the special key functionality?

Lenovo 11e E/Edge :: Disable Fn Keys On ThinkPad E420

Sep 16, 2009

I've had several laptops but I am hating this one and is basically the Fn Keys and F# Key. I am pretty customed to use keys like F4(invoking word magic), F5 (update), Alt+F4 (closing windows)...
So, now I have to press Fn + F4 Keys, Fn + F5 Keys and Fn + Alt + F5 Keys....
So is there a way to continue pressing just F4 F5 and that's it?

Lenovo 11e E/Edge :: Disable Fn Keys - ThinkPad 540E

Jan 11, 2014

Just a got a brand new Thinkpad 540-E. So far this CPU runs like a beast(with a new SSD installed). I have one minor issue though...
GOAL:: Make the F1-F12 keys function without having to press Fn first.
So I've tried the three tips I've come across online. Here is what happens:
1. BIOS(ThinkpadSetup): I only get the option to switch the Fn and Ctrl key. There are no option in my BIOS to do anything else with the keyboard/mouse settings.
2. Holding down the Fn key for 30 sec to 1 minute: Nothing happens. I even tried to do a three minute press and hold. I had a blast, but nothing came out of that neither.
3. Entering the keyboard settings in Win 7 manually: So I have no trouble entering the keyboard settings window, but mine looks extremely limited. In fact I see no options to do anything in there besides updating the driver.

Lenovo 11e E/Edge :: E420 Display Turning Off

Apr 21, 2008

I'm encountering having just purchased my laptop.  None are dealbreakers and I'm not that put off by them but the fact that I'm not able to figure out a solution bothers me.  Primarily, no matter what power setting I'm on or settings I change the display will turn off after 1 minute.  Ther other power settings still come into play when they should (computer sleeps etc.) but I'm not able to delay the screen turning off.

Lenovo 11e E/Edge :: RAM Upgrade On ThinkPad E420 (1141CTO)

Jul 19, 2011

I am planning to upgrade my RAM on my E420(1141CTO). It already has a 4 Gb on one slot. Couple of questions here.
1. What is the max RAM I can go upto on this E420 (Intel i3 2nd Gen) laptop.
2. As I have 4 GB on one slot can I put one 8Gb RAM (single module) on the other slot.
3. What brand of RAM I can use.
4. On this model can I fix another RAM myself easily or asking it the other way are the slots placed such that I can do it easily by merely oepning a couple of screws or do I have to tear everything apart.
5. Any other special considerations like about clock speed ?

Lenovo 11e E540 E/Edge :: How To Disable The Trackpad

Jan 9, 2014

I have an E540 and today I spilled some liquid on the trackpad and now my cursor is moving around and clicking randomly. I use a mouse so I don't need the trackpad.
I've read online how to disable the trackpad but I don't have any of those options. Like disabling it in BIOS or in the driver(Control Panel -> Mouse) - I just have uninstall. If I uninstall windows 8.1 will just automatically reinstall it after reboot.
How can I disable the trackpad?

Lenovo 11e E/Edge :: E540 - Can Disable Discrete Gpu (Optimus) From BIOS?

Jul 15, 2014

I'm thinking of buying a Thinkpad E540 with a discrete nvidia gpu. I am planning to install linux on it and I don't really need optimus for it (nor is it well supported) but I'd like to occasionally be able to use it on windows.
I'd like to know if it's possible to completely turn off the nvidia gpu from the BIOS so it works only with the integrated intel one or should I buy one with intel gpu only.
I have read that the lenovo changed the dual gpu implementation on the latest generation thinkpads.

Lenovo 11e E/Edge :: Function Keys Require Pressing Fn Key On E545

Jun 8, 2010

I just purchased a new E545, which has the unusual keyboard layout that I like -- the Control key inside of the special Fn key. Of course, it seems Lenovo has gone and switched the way the function keys operate so that now you have to press the Fn key to get the F-keys.
How can I swap the function keys operation so that I need the Fn key to operate the PC and media controls?

Acer Aspire V5-573g :: Can't Disable Edge Swipe - Win 8.1

Nov 18, 2014

According to the solutions I found when I googled the problem, I should be able to disable edge swipe by simply updating the synaptics drivers and turning off "edge swipe" under synpatics settings. However, there is no such setting even with the latest drivers 17.xx 
According to a link given as a solution to the same problem, this page was given as a link, and its the same solution I saw on google. [URL] .....
However, I do not have the option to turn it off under settings.

HP/Compaq :: How To Remap/disable AnnoyingEnvy Special Function Keys

Apr 26, 2010

solution to remapping the annoying Envy special function keys


I bought an envy about a month ago and have been working through the usual new laptop quirks. There are plenty of hard-to-notice-until-bought pros and cons that I might pour over some time, but right now I'd just like to mention my findings with respect to the Envy Quick Launch keys that are located on the left of the keyboard.

By default, these keys open up a mail program, HP's MediaSmart SmartMenu, a web browser, printing, and the Windows calculator program. You can see them on the left side of the keyboard, with labels I'll explain in a moment:

There's no way in the HP software to customize the buttons, so I did a little bit of fishing around and found some useful information.

My original intent was to make a small program that would sit in the system tray and simply have a menu to disable all the buttons at will or re-enable them. The buttons are nice, but they aren't the most useful thing to have enabled when one is trying to play a full-screen game. I'd keep getting sent back to the desktop because I accidentally opened a calculator instead of pressing ctrl............

HP Pavilion G7 OS/Software :: Can't Access Bios Settings / Disable F1-f12 Keys

Jun 27, 2014

I got this Notebook-PC in 2012 it is a G7 series I am fairly sure. My problem is that when I turn off the computer and turn it back on, there is no (esc) option to open bios menu or any option for that matter. Just a blue HP symble directly in the middle of the screen with a small loading symbol below it. I have pressed esc, f1-f10, and pretty much every other key to try to access it. All I really want to do is disable the most annoying f1-f12 function keys.

I am no longer under warranty and my operating system is Windows 8.  There are also no error messages at all, just no response to anything just loads up to the password login screen.

Acer Aspire 5742 :: Caps Lock Notification

Dec 7, 2014

I have been using this small utility for caps lock on a 5742 using W7 Pro and it works well. The 5742 doesn't have a caps lock light or indicator built into from Acer, so one have to come up with something.
This program will place a red "x" or green "check" in the taskbar letting you know if you're in caps lock and will also produce a small "beep" after a few letters typed in if in caps lock.

Lenovo 11e E/Edge :: Keeping Fn Key On

Jun 3, 2011

the way the F keys have been switched on my Edge 14", today I came across some time to fiddle around with it. I googled what I needed to do...and came across this question on yahoo, which is exact what I need. I bought Lenovo Thinkpad Edge several months ago, and I really like it so far. But I use MS Excel a lot and I always use shortcut keys which involve F1~F12. On my thinkpad, I always have to hit "Fn" and "F1~F12" keys simultaneously, and it is a little annoying since I've been used to using F1~F12 keys without hitting "Fn". So I went to BIOS keyboard setting, and enabled the Function key lock. It became a little bit better, because now I don't have to hit "Fn" and F1~F12 simultaneously, but I could press "Fn" AND THEN, F1~F12. But what I really want is the "Fn" key always on without pressing it. On the BIOS screen, it says hitting "fn" key twice keeps "Fn" key always on, but whenever I hit it twice and hit F1~F12, it doesn't function like F1~F12 key, but it just controlls the sound volume or display light. Is there any way to keep "Fn" key always on without pressing it everytime I want to use F1~F12 keys?"
In short, in the BIOS page, once "enabled", you are able to double tap the Fn key and have it stay on without you pressing it each time; however, it doesn't appear to work that way and turns off everytime you use a F key.

Dell :: Cut The Center Out Of My M1340 Edge-to-edge Plastic Screen, Its An Antiglare Beneath

Nov 7, 2009

The thing they call "edge to edge glass" which is really just plastic above an ordinary screen. The thing is, that the screen under that edge to edge plastic is a nice anti-glare screen, no kidding! You can see this if you take your laptop in sunlight and tilt it the right way.

So what's happening is you're getting the worst part of an anti-glare screen (reduced contrast ratio) plus the worst part of a glossy screen (unless you have a really pretty face).

I took the plastic thing off, cut along the black/clear border, pulled out the middle, and stuck the centerless border back on the laptop.

Result? THIS SCREEN IS FANTASTIC. Yeah ok, of course I would say that. But if you knew me, you'd know that was way out of the ordinary and really meant that THIS SCREEN IS FANTASTIC.

One thing you may not have considered is that the screen in its default position has yet another flaw, both sides of that glossy plastic thing are glossy, so some of the light coming from the screen is reflected back to the screen, and as you know light reflected onto the screen has a yellowish tint. That is my guess as to why the whites on this screen are really really white now, and the screen is much brighter. This also explains why other 300nit screens used to look so much brighter than this.

I will have more pics when I am able to charge the battery to my good camera. If anyone has any questions about removing that plastic thing I'll be happy to answer your questions, it's actually pretty easy. For those interested, here is how I did it:

1. I removed the "star" head screws, this was accomplished not with a special star head screw driver, but an ordinary flat head precision screw driver.

2. Put some paper over a hacksaw blade to avoid scratching, wedged it under the plastic near the top where the camera is, and snapped out the first of the several lock-in points on along the top edge. I proceeded to detatch the rest of the top of the screen in this way.

3. Both the left and right sides were held on mostly by adhesive, the very edge point locks in slightly, but the efforts removing these sides are focused mainly on separating the adhesive bond.

4. I pulled upward on the plastic and it came right off, there seems to be no adhesive or lock-in points on the bottom side.

5. Using the center of the screen as a test area, I tested several cutting utilities and decided on the utility knife. To my surprise, the plastic was about 1mm thick.

6. I clamped the screen down to the table, with a straight edge positioned 1mm inward of the black line, to give headroom for errors.

7. I cut along these lines, and repeated step 6 for each side, and pushed out the center to reveal the border piece that now resembled a common laptop screen enclosure border.

8. I used a medium grit sand paper to bring the cut lines to meet the black lines, and finished it off with a fine grit sand paper.

9. I applied some electrical tape to the area between the edge of the screen itself, and the edge of the laptop on the right and left sides because there was light leakage, and then popped the border back on and screwed it down.

Found the charger! Here's the high res shots. They do *some* justice to the screen quality.
