Problems with the help of the keyboard of the computer.

Hi all

Before anyone asks, I checked on several threadS already existing and followed the advice here, and nothing has worked. I'll briefly explain what these were, but first, let me describe the problem. NB. my knowledge of the correct computer terminology is limited, but I tried to explain it all my best.

S key

AS you can probably until my S button works, but unless shift caps lock is enabled it will profit from "95% of the time. Surprisingly, it didn't when I typed in ' then comes. After restarting my computer, it won't happen because on the first 2 - 5 times, I press the of ', and then stops, past at random during anything I type. Also, if I'm holding down SHIFT and pressing on the ' key, nothing will come on the screen. Finally, sometimes by pressing on the ' key will lead to nothing on the screen.

NumLock key

Another problem is that whenever I have a browser open and press the NumLock key, it works as if I am pressing F11 and makes the screen go full-size.


When I go to capitalize some letters - including, possibly not exhaustive w, z and x - by holding down the SHIFT key, nothing letter will appear on the screen.

Keys combined

A number of keys, for example 0 key, hyphen, equalS, hooks and back SlaSh is combined to make the following respectively:

  • 0 (zero)
  • ---] (dash)
  • 0 = (equal)
  • [------(Hook)]
  • ---] (Crochet)
  • # (back SlaSh)

It of extremely frustrating and makes extremely tedious typing assignments.

No secondary function for key 2

If I want to use a double apostrophe or the at sign, I have to change the input language to either Americans or the British, press SHIFT and use the apostrophe key. Pressing SHIFT and 2 key results in nothing.

Attempted SolutionS

These problems have persisted for about a week now, and I've tried a number of things, such as MS FixIt (which found no errors) running, run a clean boot and uninstall a reinstallation of the keyboard. I use a laptop Acer ASpire 5253 G model and have Norton 360 installed, active and ran several ScanS. So far, nothing has worked, and I'm not sure what to do. I doubt also that it is a material also issues, as all affected keys work though having some with impaired or deffective operation or the problem is not present all the time (as with the s key).

If someone could offer some SolutionS, that would be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards




It is a hardware problem.

  • Could get a new router block printing? We had a lot of problems with the computer in the last week and a half. Bought new router and now the printer does not print. :-(

    (1) we went to DirecTV. Then the same day, our internet computer is down. I asked our current provider, Suddenlink, to let them know we had them to another - but we wanted to keep for the internet.

    (2) called DirecTV to investigate why our internet went down at the same time they installed? They said that they did nothing to cause that. We waited 5 days to make out and also install the third TV that was promised. The second tech gave things a lookover and said, once again, that there is nothing unusual during their passage to cause the problem.

    (3) called Suddenlink. They said it was the router. Called the people of Netgear. They said that the router was too old. We needed to pay an exorbitant sum for support and when I told him I'd rather just buy a new router and get free technical support for 90 days... and I personally do not have the credit cards in that time. (it's my mother s equip and I wonder it for the computer) when the guy told me that he could help and hung up on us, even though I was pleading for him to wait until I put my mother on the phone. (I'm in my 40s... not a kid).

    (4) Suddenlink called a few days later, when we got a new router (netgear brand NO!) Installed and I noticed that the 'ready' light was not 'on' on the modem. Their technology has said that he would check and call us in a few minutes. He did not.

    (5) the next day I called Suddenlink AGAIN. This time, I got a really nice customer service agent. She said she would send someone to check on it. It turns out that they had disconnected when I had called to pass only the TV.

    (6) in any case, we are finally online... only now... I can't the printer to work. :-(  This has worked before.  Could it be caused by the different router? I don't know about these things. I didn't even know what it was until someone at Radio Shack has explained to me. (I was not about to buy one at Wal-Mart - these poor people). The printer is a Canon Pixma MX340. We love him. The only thing is that it is difficult to clear the tasks or to reset. The only way to really do that is to simply pull the plug, unfortunately and restart the computer. But hey, it's a great printer, better than HP.

    We are under vista. The router is a Linksys wifi (which we have) N300 model E900.

    Of course I appreciate any help you can give. God bless you!

    They are:











    Left click

    These are my most commonly used keys/buttons, so it can become very annoying. In addition, most of the F keys get stuck, but it's because there is something that needs to be cleaned under the feet.

    My questions are: How can I fix? Is this a problem with my computer or my keyboard and mouse?

    He questions, here are my computer Incase care, as well as my keyboard and mouse:

    Inspiron 620, 8 GB RAM Dell, AMD Radeon HD 6450, everything the way it came to the left

  • Compaq Presario CQ56: a problem with the computer keyboard laptop presario CQ56

    All keys (F) Act as the FN key is been held down when it is not. This just started today. I have a free prog called "keyboard test utility. Now, I have discovered that I can get 1 clean tap of F4 and the prog to test keyboard shows only illuminated F4. The next time I hit the letter (P) F4 and the Windows key are lit. Now, if I tap the FN key, and then press the F4 key. Again, F4 is the only 1 who turned on the prog of test. It's almost like the FN button nosed. I just to confirm. Rather than hold down the FN key to get things under the keys (F) (as a volume-, volume +, cut and so on). Now, I have to hold down the FN key to get the regular F1 to F12 keys. The rest of the keyboard is fine. A regular toggle switch or a switch in a radio push button. The FN key acts like someone ripped the wires to the back of the switch and reverse the wires and the switch can operate in reverse. Beats me how this can happen to a laptop keyboard.



    Here are a couple of things to try.

    1. judgment of the laptop.  Disconnect the power adapter and remove the battery.  Press and hold the Power button for 30 seconds.  Reinsert the battery and plug in the AC adapter.

    Robinet tap away at the key esc that you start the computer to launch the Start Menu, and then select f10 to open the bios menu.  Press f9 to load the default values (sometimes it is f5, but the menu below indicates the correct key), use the arrow keys to select 'Yes' and press ENTER.  Press f10 to save the setting and still use the arrow keys to select 'Yes' and press on enter.

    2. try to change the default action of the keys 'f' as follows.

    2. some viruses had infected my pc,
    I tried to scan my pc and the USB with 2 antivirus free and pay different and even contacted the companies and sent them files. But I got no solution.

    The companies had scanned all files that are intended for them and had recommended some solutions, but none of them worked and I was faced with the same problems.

    According to my knowledge, 2 of my PC are infected and the virus are not getting detected by bitdefender on my PC1 but 4 threats have been detected on the laptop...
    The same files are include the other way on my other pc.
    Whenever I open the files, save option opens and a new file is saved with the file tha but they never get to open in word or powerpoint, only the backup option is displayed.
    The original files are protected by copyright and are lost. PL help me if possible to retrieve and delete all the files once the inspection is completed. You can forward this message to any authorized person.
    Attached files have changed to 1 or 2 k, but there was initially datas in a few MBs.
    201310131003535. I mentioned that somewhere I had formatted the USB key. Just before that, I had copied all files by selecting CTRL A and cut all the files in a directory on my PC. Then I opened the USB and no files were there. But always around 4 GB has been shown as being busy on the USB stick before formatting.
    My pc takes too long to restart, I tried a few 3 - 4 times and no updates have been installed or waiting to install after the 2nd time but when even he took more time than usual to restart and is compared to the other pc taking 2 X the time to restart, but two of them have installed bitdefender. Problem in my laptop toshiba, not pc lenovo, space time with more than 50 percent on the disk processor and Atom c.
    The files on my USB key are automatically replaced by shortcuts and so files open in a new tab and new cases opened are not those of origin who have been saved by me in this matter. Yet once I formatted and scanned, files, pc and USB but still facing the same USB key.
    1. all files are automatically displayed as shortcuts, even if I had pasted the original file
    2. once I click on open, I get an error and then after clicking on ok, some files get opened
    Before sending the email, I had formatted the USB scanned files on my HARD drive and then copied on the USB. The same problem persists. I think that when the files are displayed or open, the virus does something and change his behavior wrongly.
    1 bitdefender watch as new bitdefender is available, I click ok and repair wire starts and then it tells the system to restart.this cycle continues on the race

    2. 2 files are missing (attachment)
    3. could you send me the file by e-mail?  You can also download the link below.

    because the webste or browsers (chrome, firefox) are not respongding.
    4. I could get these 2 points. Browse your computer to locate the removable storage device and right click
    its icon.
    3. in the shortcut menu, point to Bitdefender and select immunize it

    the error is in German-
    Der process nicht auf die Datei zugreifen kann, da sie von einem other process verwendet wird. I closed all the files and tried to immunize the USB of the my computer without having to open the USB by clicking on it.
    Itried to remoe and atach the pendriveagain and even restarted the laptop, but the same error message appeared.
    Properties - 5.10 GB ref 7.89 GB, but when the USB wasopened, all files were only 2 or 3 KB of size.
    1 more problem-i tried to delete the files in quarantine but bitdefender stopped working and went off automatically.
    I copied all the files from USB to pc, they were 2.22 GB, then again, I copied them back after scannig and formatting of topendrive and it was only 1.44 GB
    BitDefender Antivirus 2013 never works and always displays the message to restart the laptop so that it can start working, but it neverstarts. But bitdefendeer 60 seconds work.

    I have windows 7 ultimate and have updated my directx9 to directx11 but when I run nfs game mw13 it says directx10 or best graphic is necessary. my windows version is also compatible with the game so now what can I do?

    Try to update your graphics driver. You can find the driver in your computer manufacturer's website. If you directx11 on it already, then it should be no problem with it. I suggest that you run the directx diagnostic tests.


  • Problems with the computer

    I have an E310. I almost had him for a year.  I started to have problems like get on the internet and to be very slow. In addition, I had dell and download of windows problems.  Who is slow in any case I haven't switched.  A couple of weeks before the problems started, I downloaded Windows Live One Care.  Installed the thought that this might have caused the problem, I have so installed. I still had problems.  I don't remember where, but someone told me to reinstall windows.  I did, but I've always had more problems.  I did a live chat and the tech said that I had installed it wrong.  They told me to reinstall and reinstall not online.  I did it.  But somehow when I boot it shows I have a floppy error, (I don't have a disk), then it shows that windows XP has been installed in 3 times.

    I let you know are how to have only a single windows xp on the computer.  Plus all my disks on the computer, I have no sound and several others are missing.  When I'm on the computer and a new material ask always shows this floppy drive.  Why?

    Please someone help me with these problems.  It must be in terms that I can understand that I don't know much about computers.

  • I got a call from people claiming that there was a problem with the computer.

    Original title: scammed by PCWizards?

    A few days ago I received a call from PC assistants saying they were Windows operating system support. They tell me that they have noticed that I had many requests from spam junk that was slowing down my computer. Unfortunately, as I had a big problem with my computer in time, I bit. I was very nervous about it at the time, but since I had so many problems with my computer and that you didn't know what to do, I fell prey to their plot. They talked to me in a 6 month contract for a fee of $99.00. After they have finished the maintenance on my computer, it worked very well, too gullible me thought: maybe they are legitimate.

    At the end of the interview I googled their business and came across an article that has been exposed as the crooks and claims that Wizards PC installs a spyware sophisticated by giving them access to the victim's computer remotely.

    To reassure myself, I decided to call using my Norton Security System. Their technician checked my computer and found a few things that their technology did not that he should have done; such that no detected restore points, the registry was not cleaned (35 detected registry errors) and it did not remove some software malware browers (toolbars).

    On his recommendation, I recalled PC assistants. The first tech I talked didn't seem to know what he was doing, so I hung up with him and sent their support line and ask them to address these problems or I would withdraw the payment from my credit card. Almost immediately after sending the e-mail, another technician called me. Unknowingly, I had all ready filed a dispute with my credit card company. I intend to cancel the service, but I am still concerned by some spyware detected on my computer. What is the best way for me to handle this? How can I get authenic proof that I was definitely scammed and I should report it to the Internet Crime Center? Using my computer for a few basic daily functions, must not be so stressful!  Any constructive guidance would be greatly appreciated!

    It's a scam.

    Either these so-called "Microsoft" Tech companies want to sell you a worthless software, or remote access to your computer to try to steal your credit card and bank information and also achieve an identity theft on you.

    You gave them remote access and if you do Internet banking, contact your bank, explain, and change passwords.

    If you use your online credit card, cancel and get a new one issued to you.

    And the only way that willl you know that you are free to them is to backup your data and do a clean install of your operating system.


    And Microsoft does not contact you unless YOU have made prior arrangements with them to do.

    There is an article in the link I'm you provide at the end of this one

    Read this Information from Microsoft:

    "Avoid scams to phone for tech support.

    Don't be fooled of unsolicited calls. Don't provide personal information.
