Your problem may have different causes:

1. if your keyboard is old, you may want to spend either money, on a new keyboard, or time, cleaning your keyboard as you may have some kung underneith causing the keys to stick.

2. do try another key board and see if that corrects the issue (get rid of the current problem keyboard). try the keyboard on another computer and see it works fine. if it does your problem may be with the connector on the motherboard, you may have to get usb keyboard or you may have to replaced your motherboard.

3. if your keyboard is a special new keyboard you may have to look for updated drivers for it instead of using the drivers that come with the operating system.. look into the keyboard manufacturer's website for updated drivers..

4. go to control pannel> keyboards and look into the hardware tab and look for properties, make sure the status of the device is "working properly" if not reinstall or updated drivers.

5. check your possible bios updates: if your keyboard is a ps/2 (mini 6 pin din). look for for updates for your bios on motherboard manufacturer website.

post more details of your device and issues and we'll try to help.

I turned my screen up side down and cant turn back what can I do


Firstly log on to the computer and get in the main/desktop screen
now press and hold the "Ctrl" key, the "Alt" key and the right arrow key togather .. the screen will rotate. Keep hitting the right arrow key on the keyboard with the Ctrl and the Alt key pressed unless the screen is back to normal.

Go to Start>> Control Panel>> Display icon>> Settings tab>> Advanced button>> Intel(R) Extreme Graphics tab (or whatever your video card is)>> Graphics Properties button>> Rotation tab.
It should work
All The Best!!!

My emachine computer will not allow me access it comes on and then it will pop up with techical error followed by six zero and I want to know what can I do to fix it


It seems that your installed copy of Windows has gone "beserk".
Turn the computer off.
Turn the computer on.
Keep pressing the F8 key, until you see the Windows "boot-menu".
Choose "Safe Mode", and see if it will startup, in a minimalist way.

If not, then insert the eMachine "System Recovery" CD-ROM.
Turn the computer off.
Turn the computer on, and tell the computer to boot from the CD device, rather than booting from your 'C:' disk-drive.
Choose "Repair Windows", and see if your installed copy of Windows can be "repaired".

Laptop keyboard not working right


Well, a couple of things come to mind.

There could possibly be something that got down under the keys and is causing the problem. This could be foreign items (paper clips,staples,etc) or residue from a spilled drink, as an example. If so, these things can sometimes e removed or cleaned up.

The keyboard itself may have gone bad. There's usually not much that can be fixed when this happens and the keyboard would need to be replaced.

A work around that could be used is to hook up an external keyboard.

Hope this has helped and haveasuperday!
