I'm a how-to-blogger always looking for being as productive as possible using and administrating my Linux and Windows based computers and keeping them as synchronized as possible. I also love to share my daily acquisitions on social networks and my (German) blog. I'm a slave to automation, too, using little scripts and tools. Finally I'm a geek between know-how and dellusion ;)

comment Change BIOS settings without display
Because I wasn't able to enter some kind of boot options (the menu I saw before was from Windows, not from the Bios) during the Bios bootup I tried to change Bios settings again. I managed to make parts of the screen temporarily viewable by jiggling the display a bit, so I was able to set the boot sequence. Sadly the DVD drive is non-functional so I will try to install Fedora via USB.

Btw, S-Video doesn't show me the BIOS screen but I hope the graphical installer of Fedora will. I'll try that when I managed to boot from CD. This way I won't have to do a kickstart installation because this requires a custom boot string to be entered inside the cd menu.

I tried F10, F11, F12 and DEL (corresponding to a forum thread I found through Google). I think it was F12 that lead me to the boot options, one the other keys was for recovery mode. Nope, PgUp/Down didn't move the mark but as mentioned there was only one line. I will try U/P.

Meanwhile I figured out the right key to enter boot options but as far as I can see (the mentioned small part on the left side which is visible) I have only one option (marked with a white background) and pressing the arrow keys doesn't move anything. Any hints?

@Yeodave: Thanks for the hint, will try this when I'm at home. I wasn't sure how to navigate through the boot options, on some laptops there are letters to choose the boot device but if there is a navigation simple as this it could solve my problem.

Thanks for your answer. I already considered connecting via S-Video but none of my S-Video-Cables from former graphics cards have the right pins. I usually don't need S-Video so I'd prefer a solution without buying such a cable just to try this. The display is broken, not just the backlight. Only a small part on the left is visible.

comment Allow reassignment of [Win] + [num+] or completely remove Magnifier on Windows 7
{#NumpadAdd::Run notepad} (ignore the {}), this will run notepad when pressing [WIN]+[NUM +]. If you don't want AutoHotKey to be installed simply compile it as an EXE (right click the .ahk and choose compile)

comment How to start Internet Explorer 8 without any bars
Fullscreen mode doesn't fit my needs, I want to have a window I can use side by side with other applications and I want to see my Windows taskbar. It'd be enough to have a shortcut that opens an IE window without any bars and loading the LogMeIn Tech Console windows, not the session itself.
