Disable The Fn + Function Key Combination on Compaq Presario CQ56 and other models

4 Jul

On most HP and Compaq notebook PCs, it is necessary to press and hold the function key (fn) while pressing one of the f1 through f12 keys to activate the default functions; such as, increasing or decreasing the brightness of the display, the sound volume, sleep, keyboard lock, etc. On the HP Envy notebooks and other notebooks with advanced BIOS options, the function keys can be configured so that it is not necessary to press and hold the fn key.

Hello world!

Hello World!

I know, the above cliche seems inappropriate but I beg to differ. Changes have happened to this site once more! As you may have noticed, I still have a basic dark theme (I have to read black text on white backgrounds all day thus why my personal spaces have to be different…its refreshing…don’t you think?) but I have changed the whole platform!

All my previous sites were running on Joomla but I think I now understand why many blogs do not use that platform. It is immensely powerful but not designed for blogging. It has too many bells and whistles for a simple blog site, and frankly speaking, the lack of good support for blogging tools like Blogilo in KDE (which is what I am using now), Windows Live Writer in Windows (of course) and other blog editors is just a pain in the… That is the main reason for the move. Using a blogging tool also help on bandwidth and makes it a lot simpler to post content. So now that I am on a good platform, you bet you are going to see a lot more on this blog. By the way, for those who might be wondering which platform this is, its WordPress (the CMS version of WordPress, which you can find at WordPress.org, and not the online blogging version at WordPress.com)

As expected, there are challenges I am getting already, like looking for a good download manager for this platform. Joomla has a wide selection but am sure I can get one for wordpress; so if you have any ideas, please, do holla at me using the comments list. And while you are at it, I would also appreciate a nice contact me page plugin for this platform as well. Thanks in advance for your help world!

I have had quite a few experiences since the last time I was contributing to the blogosphere and I am ready to share with you world so do come back from time to time, or subscribe to my feed. For now, I think this is log enough for my introduction article. So for now…bye.
