Default F1 Brings black screen to my mini 10v. - 09-16-2009, 10:51 PM

Hello again,

I am just wondering if anyone is having problems with their mini 10v and os x 10.5.8 when pressing F1 on the keyboard? The reason that I ask is because every time I press F1 (by mistake, trying to hit scape) the screen goes black and will not go back to the regular os x screen after pressing f1 again. Looks like F1 is for the VGA as well, but I have not tested it on an external screen.

Any information on how to get back to the original screen would be appreciated!

The F1 key does not work on the 10v in OSX. This key will be disabled in the next NetbookInstaller release (.8.3 release candidate)

 Mini 10v  | 2Gb RAM | 320 Gb HDD | Ubuntu 10.04 | OSX 10.6.3 | NBI .8.4RC1 | Chameleon Bullet Theme | BIOS A05 | USB Wake : OFF | USB Legacy : ON | No BlueTooth

Good to know! I thought it was a problem with my install/computer.

Thanks again!
