Have you tried the accessibility options within Windows? You can change some settings by going into Control Panel - Accessibility. For example, "Filter Keys" tells the computer to ignore multiple keystrokes caused by holding down a key too long. "Sticky Keys" eliminates the need to press multiple keys simultaneously.

Also within control panel are the Mouse settings. You can change the speed of motion and the speed of double clicks.

Windows has an on-screen keyboard. You can find it at Start - All Programs - Accessories - Accessibility - On Screen Keyboard.

If you prefer a hardware solution, you might consider an enlarged keyboard with big keys. Another alternative is a keyboard guard to prevent hitting two keys at once. Here are some links that you might find useful. I'm not endorsing these particular suppliers, just offering food for thought. Best of luck to you!

Battery dead & BIOS reset. CD & DVD drives lost.


first you will need to replace the cmos on the system board(or have a qualified computer service tech. do it). then you will need to access the bios settings by Pressing F1 immediately after powering on the computer. once in the bios, you can set the correct date and time. Also, you will need to check the drive settings to verify that the hard drive and any CD/DVD drives are recognized. once done, then exit the BIOS being sure to chose "save and exit", then allow your PC to boot normally. this should fix your date and drive issues. if not then the motherboard may be defective.

Need new hard drive for Averatec All-In-One series. Can't find them. Any help would be appreciated.


Sorry you are having trouble. From the Avertek website I found that this PC uses a 250GB SATA Hard Disk Drive (5400rpm) These are standardized and can be found at most any good computer store. I also found several on Ebay around the $50 range.

Emachine will not power up


By nothing else, from a technical standpoint this would mean literally nothing, the CPU fan, power supply fan, aux fan, disk drive not spinning up, etc. My experience with EMachines is their motherboards aint the best, have been known to take out hard drives and other peripherals to the mother board. If you are technically inclined the first thing to do is to bare out the system, Power Supply attached to the Mother Board w/ Cpu Monitor and Keyboard no Hard Drive and no Non esential boards installed, very carefully remove the memory and start it up all should be fine except it should give you a long beep from the PC Speaker indicating the Mother Board is aware there is no memory installed if it will not do this most basic of tests this is not good. If it does give you a health beep continue to install one item at a time, first the memory, the display should, if working, tell you there is a boot failure, of course, the hard drive is not connected, do so and keep on testing. Without knowing what type of mother board you have, most likely an AT with integrated peripherials the process to determine exactly what the problem is would take hands on trouble shooting. If you dont get the beep indicating the mother board cant determine if memory is installed and truley nothing else is on it is more likely the mother board. There are several good ones online that will fit your case if you want to go this route. Or is it time to upgrade ?

Problems with boot


the solution to your problem is format. just reformat your pc then after the completion of it, run the checkdisk ( i suspect that your hard disk has a bad sector)

to run the check disk..

1. go to start
2. look for the "run" command then click it
"run" command is a dos prompt that will allow you to key in some commands.

3. type chkdsk c: /f
Using /f will automatically fix the system and hard disk error if there is any

after that test, if the chkdsk found some bad sector in your hard disk, may i suggest that you have to buy new hard disk because using hard disk with bad sector it will face you a trouble in the future.

Compu is averatec d1002uhce-1 2 month new .... i


sounds like either you have a disk in the cd drive and it won't boot because of it or you have some other device that it is looking to boot from instead of the hard drive.... if not, then you have a bad hard drive. I would first unplug all accessories and eject any discs... Next go into the bios (if your comfortable with it) and make sure the hard drive is in the boot priority... if nothing, then take the cover off and disconnect and reconnect your hard drive. If that doesn't work then you probably have a faulty drive.

2nd internal hard drive



I’m assuming that you have an IDE hard disk drive ribbon cable with 2 connectors on it. One connector is for the primary or master drive. The other is for a secondary or slave drive. Return all jumper settings to cable select (CS) settings. Connect the 500 to the slave connector and power on computer and enter the set up (BIOS) menu by tapping the F2 key. Hold down the <Alt> key and depress the <E> then the <F> keys in succession. This will force the motherboard to load default settings and also force the motherboard to redetect all IDE devices. Note: The selection for the floppy drive will be reset to ON. If you do not have one then you must disable floppy in set up (BIOS) menu.
