Such is controlled by helper apps such as Dell's QuickSet. I find many new to Windows owners, that is when they learn about extra apps often remove too much. There's also an issue with KEYBOARD LOGGERS that can block this function.
Be sure to ask the IT staff to explain Dell's QuickSet as I defer to you company support.
My computer is a Dell Laptop which was imaged by my company, and there were some errors made on the imaging. Since it takes so long for a re-image I would like to find a fix for the issue.
The Function Key will work before the Windows Operating System loads but will not work once the operating system has loaded. I am using Windows 7.
Therefore I cannot adjust my screen brightness nor will my machine recognize external devices plugged into the VGA port.
I needed to use a projector the other day and that wouldn't work because you need to use the function key in combination with another key to recognize it, I also cannot get it to recognize my external monitor and of course the remedy for that is once again using the function key in combination with another key. Any ideas on how to fix the function key or a work around to get the computer to recognize external devices plugged into the VGA port??
