      Problem analysis:

      To optimize system startup speed,  user will close some shortcuts in startup folder by msconfig or using a third-party software which will lead to the malfunction of shortcuts. By pressing “Fn+ direction key”, LCD brightness and volume can be adjusted correctly, however, the relevant brightness or volume bar will not display on the screen during adjusting. On below figure, the startup items in Windows XP are listed out. (Click “Start” button” --> “Run” and type “msconfig”)

      To resolve the above issue, please follow the steps below:

      1. Check the checkbox of “utilty”, click “OK” to save and exit and reboot PC.
      2. The problem should be resolved after restart.
      3. Press “FN+F5”, the correct interface “Lenovo Wireless Device Settings” will display as Fig.3. The interface will be different due to different versions of power/energy management software.
