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!

Why do i shake ?


I would recommend seeking a neurological evaluation since there are a number of conditions, including Parkinson's disease, that could be responsible. Another possible cause is a disorder called "essential tremor", which is common among older adults and occurs 20 times more often than Parkinson's disease. Unlike Parkinson's, essential tremor isn't due to an underlying disease and doesn't lead to serious complications. The beta blockers you were prescribed often are used for treatment of this condition but work only in 50 percent of all cases. Shaky hands also could be due to anxiety, but to reach this diagnosis, a physician must first rule out physical causes. In addition to essential tremor and Parkinson's, shaky hands may be caused by thyroid disease, drug side effects or heavy metal poisoning.
Sometimes the nature of symptoms suggests the diagnosis. For example, essential tremor usually is seen when you are using your hands, while the tremor associated with Parkinson's typically occurs when your hands are at rest.
Treatment will depend on your diagnosis. In addition to beta blockers, a number of drugs are used to treat essential tremor. They include anti-seizure medications, tranquilizers, drugs used to treat glaucoma, and Botox. If no physical cause is found, your physician may attribute your shaky hands to anxiety. If so, relaxation techniques such as breathing exercises may be helpful. You may also want to experiment with acupuncture, which I've seen control this condition or lessen the severity of it in some patients. You can also take the following steps to relieve or reduce shaky hands:
  • Avoid caffeine, which can trigger production of adrenaline, a hormone that can worsen tremors.
  • Avoid alcohol, which has pronounced effects on the central nervous system and can aggravate essential tremor.
  • Exercise with light hand weights that can promote stability in the hands and wrists. Ask your physician to recommend a physical therapist who can teach you the exercises.

Keyboard problem


I can assure you that your generosity is truly appreciated by all who know of it. Forgive this boy, buy the new keyboard and get on with your wonderful life. These things happen and sometimes it is no ones fault. My wife decided to "help" one time and used a floor vacuum cleaner to clean my laptop key board. She quickly sucked three keys into the vacuum and threw away the bag before anyone realized. I can laugh now as I tell this to you....but at first I was not laughing. Take care. J.

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 ?
