How do I unlock the keyboard of IBM Selectric III???

The Selectric typewriter has several "interlocks" that can cause the keyboard to be locked. When you turn the machine off there is a mechanism that locks the keyboard. When you turn it on the part should move and unlock the keyboard. Sometimes this part sticks and the keyboard will remain locked. When you type any character the keyboard is locked to prevent two keys trying to type at the same time. The machine locks and unlocks very fast. One keys is locked in and prevents others from working. try turning on the machine and hitting every key just a little bit harder and see if it then types. When you shift, as the ball is turning the keyboard is locked temporarily so it won't attempt to type as the ball is turning as that would damage the machine. Sometimes the shift mechanism can cause the keyboard to remain licked as the shift may not have finished it's complete cycle. Also, the return mechanism locks the keyboard temporarily when the carrier is returning to prevent you from typing when the carrier is moving backwards. Only a qualified technician can resolve those issues.

When I type a letter on keyboard it keeps repeating the letter

The key might be sticking down, which is probably a defect in the product. I tested an ihome keyboard (Bluetooth) and everything except the spacebar was prone to sticking itself down, no pop spill or nothing. So, I recommend to return the keyboard if you still have the receipt and get a Bluetooth Apple keyboard instead, as ihome is good for their docks, but their keyboards suck!

I am having trouble when I try to type double the t in letter - it's like the second t is sticking. It is doing it with all the letters that are consecutive....been, etc.

That's strange never seen this before, have you've tried a different keyboard to see if another keyboard works. If another keyboard works then it is definately the keyboards problem, and it is probably easiest to just replace the keyboard. You could try cleaning the keyboard as well look online for the proper way to clean a keyboard.

I have an Everex StepNote SA2052T that came with 1GB of memory. can I add another memory stick of 2GB for a total of 3GB. If so, how do I install the second stick and where?

According to the specs of this laptop is 1GB Max. So you can't use a 2GB. Also it states that there is only 1 slot for memory. Which means you can not add another stick of memory, you can only add 1 stick to it.

To add you turn the notebook upside down and start to unscrew. look for the 'memory' section. However doing this would be pointless.

If your experiencing slow processing, try to remove programs that you don't use anymore. Make sure some programs don't 'start-up' while your computer is loading.

WARNING*** you are responsible for your own actions
Go to: START > type msconfig > click the 'Startup' tab > Check for unused programs running (example: msn messenger, Uncheck the box; if you don't know that program then don't uncheck it) After your done, click OK and Restart your notebook.

For future information:
  • If you are going to add memory, make sure it is the same type (example: pc5300 on old chip and new chip) otherwise you will burn out the memory.
  • Always check online for your laptop/notebook specs before doing adjustments, otherwise you risk chances of burning out the notebook and or devices your trying to add into it.
  • If you can afford it, buy a new notebook/laptop.

Good luck, and rate my advice.

u r keyboard is likely to b defective or ur ram..

hope it'll work..

better to seek professional supervision esp of ur system admin/vendor....

I like the set up of the keyboard but? to bad it does not work.
As I am typing this with my old keyboard because I can not use the the s520

Wireless keyboard keys sticking

on most keyboad you can take of each key. Try to get a flat head screw driver and pop it of with some force. You then can clean the keys. If this does not work you might need a new keyboard. Do not use water (or very little)
