    Thanks, using insert didn't solve the problem, I then used my office assistant, who told me to use Tools/Options/Edit and choose what I wanted. Thanks for helping me focus on a solution instead of the problem. P

If you are typing on a word document, look at the bottom of the screen and see if "OVR" is black on the bottom. If so, try hitting the "insert" key and see if it goes away.

How restart laptop using f bottons


You don't restart a laptop using the Function Keys (F1 thru F12). You restart the laptop by hitting the power button. The function keys will allow you to boot the laptop in SAFE MODE if you repeatedly hit the F8 key until you see the Safe Mode option after you hit the power button. Function keys will also allow you to change the boot order, go into the BIOS or Setup to change things also. You need to state your problem as to what is going on with your laptop.

Keys not working on lato ( you now now what


Check your keyboard for region code settings. Or check the key for the difference on other keys how it reacts on depressing and releasing. Maybe some foreign material that block the key to hit the contact underneath.

Or if this is a rubber type contact, might it is been teared already. Then replacement is an option.

HP DV9000 ''G'' ''H'' and backspace keys seem to not work on occasion


Sometimes the simplest things cause us the most grief. A starting point might be to turn the laptop upside down (be careful!). Then, use some compressed air (Dust Off, etc) to blow the keyboard. If there is trash in the keyboard, you might just blow it out -- and fix the problem.

If that doesn't work, you might consider having the keyboard replaced. I normally take them off the laptop and hit them with compressed air from the back before replacing the keyboard. That's an option you should pursue only if you feel comfortable with minor dis-assembly of your laptop.

I hope this helps. If it does, please rate the solution offered. My goal is always FixYa or Helpful, never TFT or IA. Regards,

Six keyboard keys I don't know how to use


Insert: You press this key to toggle either overwrite mode or insert mode when you are typing documents. In overwrite mode, the characters will be replaced where your cursor is in the middle of a sentence and in insert mode, the characters will be added.
PRT SC: Short for print screen. You press this and the computer will take a snapshot of your computer's screen and copy it to the clipboard. Then you can open up paint or word and press CTRL-V to paste that snapshot of your screen as a picture in your document.
HOME: Takes your cursor to the very beginning of a document in a word processor.
SCROLL: Toggles the scroll function in a document.
PG UP: Moves the document you are looking at up a page.
PAUSE: Will pause a list being sent to your screen from the command window.
DELETE: Will delete whatever you have highlighted on your screen
SYS RQ: Check your notebook's information for this.
END: Will take your cursor to the end of the current line, paragraph, or document.
NUM LK: will turn on the numberlock function, allowing you to use the right side ofyour keyboard like a numberpad.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

Laptop cant go wireless


Hi infamouszz,

Is your laptop's wifi turned on? usually you can check this by hitting the Function Key "Fn" and then hit the wifi key which is usually one of the F1-F12 Keys.

let me know if that works out and please rate me if it does!
