Function lock on ASUS X541U laptop

Windows 7

Hi, I have an ASUS X541U laptop running Windows 10. Please can someone tell me how to turn on (or off) the function lock so I don't have to press it simultaneously with other function buttons. My husband has use of only one hand and finds it impossible to span from fn to f10 or f11 in order to change the volume. I have tried in BIOS but cannot find any mention of function/multimedia/ hotkeys. HELP !!! Julia

How to fix my computer? (Exception Processing message)

Windows 7

My lap top has been having some issues. After turning it on, the wallpaper on my lock screen doesn't have a wall paper, it's grey instead. I enter my password and it opens. Only ten seconds after opening, it shuts down first showing this message: Exception Processing message 0xc00007b Parameters 0x7ffe6e7c1d280xffffffffc0000428 0x7ffe6e7c1d28 0x7ff6e7c1d28 My laptop has been doing this for a long time now. I recently reinstalled windows to fix the problem, but it didn't help. Is there anything I could do before taking it to repair? I'm using windows 10

Laptop has blue screen with error 0xc000000d

Windows 7

My Lenovo G710 laptop was working fine Monday night. On Tuesday morning I had realized that I had forgotten to charge my laptop and only had about 20% battery left. I put the computer to sleep and later that night the computer was off. I proceeded to plug in my laptop and turn it on. The following message was displayed on the screen. I have looked online into possible ways to fix this, however I do not have a backup of any of my files and pictures on my hard drive. I would rather not have to factory reset and lose all of my files. Is there any way to fix this issue without having to perform a factory reset?

HomeGroup printer sharing problem

Windows 7

I just re-installed Windows 10 on my desktop. I have established a home group. My office desktop has a USB connected printer and I have a desktop in my cave connected WiFi to my network. Everything works fine except I cannot get my printer to work from my cave desktop. I ran a diagnostic and get the message 'resource (peer to peer grouping) is online but not responding to connection attempts'. Before I reloaded Windows 10 on my office desktop I had it all working. Any idea of what is wrong? Thanks Note - I'm not all that computer savvy so simplicity would be appreciated :-).

Unable to uninstall and Install prgrams after change of harddisk

Windows 7

Some of my programs are installed in a secondary drive "F", which cannot work after I had to change the affected Harddisk. Uninstalling and Installing did not work as it keep saying 'F' Drive invalid. I used the FixIt programme from https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/17588/fix-problems-that-block-programs-from-being-installed-or-removed, that helped me to uninstall. I thought it is uninstalled as I did not see my program in the control panel>programme list anymore. However when I try to install again, it could not and had this error message "invalid F:" Any idea how to solve it?

Windows 10 won't wake up from prolonged sleep (or hibernate or shutdown) conditions

Windows 7

Hello I have a ThinkPad T420 running Windows 10 with this characteristics: CPU: Core i5 2520m RAM: 16 GB Crucial Graphics: Intel HD and NVIDIA NVS 4200 Storages: SAMSUN SSD EVO 850 (as OS disk in a bracket inserted instead of DVD ROM)WD HDD 320GB 7200 rpm I have worked for several mounts with this system perfectly and there was no problem. Newly, a bad problem has been appeared: when I put the system to sleep for a long time, the system won't wake up (the power LED flashing, Bluetooth LED and CPU fan being on). After force shutdown, in the boot process BSD error occurs and after several restart, finally Windows will boot. The BSD occurs when I turn on the laptop after a prolonged shutdown or hibernate also. I emphasize that the problem occurs when sleep conditions (or being turned off or hibernated) is for a long time (more than an hour) and in short time periods, there is no error!!!! The computer restart command works properly (shutting down via the Windows and booting again). I tried several solutions from internet search as followed without permanent success! Check disk (with /f and /r flags)sfc /scannowPower management modifications (disabling hybrid sleep, disabling HDD turn off, disabling hibernation, disabling wake up timer)Fresh installing Windows (Windows 7 and 10) several timesUpdating bios to the latest versionUpdating windows to the latest released updatesUpdating drivers to the latest versionsDisabling intel SpeedStep technology from within bios settings (it worked for some days, but the problem came back!)Disabling NVIDIA from bios and working with intel graphics only and vice versa.Fully cleaning SSD with clean command from "diskpart" and with SAMSUNG secure erase tool in SAMSUN magician.Removing the HDD from laptop.Changing the SSD port (in DVD ROM port and in default HDD port)Reputing RAMs and exchanging their slot positions.Full hardware checks not showing any problem in the hardware (memory, HDD, SSD, Motherboard and …)Removing battery and AC power separately.Testing three conditions in the virtual memory settings: automatic page file, customized page file and no page file. The other things maybe important to noticed is that the problem began from after a fully battery discharge when the laptop was in sleep mode. The BSDs are different but the most frequent one is "Kernel security check failed". Sometimes it is "memory management" with no logged information in dump files (logging is enable in the windows setting). A major question: basically, what is the difference between prolonged sleep (or shutdown) and short time ones?! I read in an internet page about a problem similar to the current that the final solution is migration to Linux OS! is it true? Please help me to resolve this problem.
