Tab key is located on the lefthand side of the keyboard just above the Capslock key and says TAB on it,It should also have two arrows,One facing left and one facing right.

Try the other Alt key located at the other end of the space bar

Need to change video display in Autocad running in DOS


Hit the "Alt" and "Enter" keys at the same time while in the full screen window. This will change the full screen to a window.

Right click the blue bar at the top of the window. Choose "Properties." Click on the "Options" tab. Make sure the setting is on "Window" rather than "Full Screen."
Click "OK." When you are prompted with save options, choose "Save Properties for Future Windows with Same Title."
Change the properties for the general command prompt. Click the "Start" button. Click "Programs" and "Accessories." Right click the "Command Prompt" icon.

Navigate to "Properties." Choose the "Options" tab. Check the button next to "Window" instead of "Full Screen." Click "Apply," then "OK."

Use the mouse to right click on a DOS program's shortcut. Choose "Properties." Select "Options." Under "Display Options," select "Window." Click "Apply" and "OK."
Open the command prompt or your DOS shortcut. Right click on the blue bar. Click "Properties" and go to the "Layout" tab. Under "Window Size," use the arrows to increase the height and width of the window. Click "OK," click "Modify Shortcut That Started This Window" and click "OK."

My screen is turned to vertical and i dont know how to fix it


It is due to your video card program managing your screen display. For a quick fix, try these out:
  1. Close all windows programs.
  2. Hold the CTRL key and press the UP arrow on the "Arrow Keys".
  3. Try also holding the CTRL key and press any of the arrow keys and you should see the display orientation changes.
  4. If the steps 1-3 don't work, try holding the ALT key and press the arrow keys (ALT key instead of CTRL key).
  5. If step 4 still doesn't work, try holding the CTRL key + ALT key + the arrow keys.
These should work since CTRL + arrow key or ALT + arrow key are shortcuts of the video card program that is why you can mess it up sometimes. Just give it a try.

WHAT ARE THE THE HOT KEYS


Hot Keys are either a single "Key" such as say the Ctrl button, or even a letter or number Key, on the keyboard or a group of "Keys" say Ctrl-Alt-Del, Shift- Alt-1, whatever. Usually the keys have a funtion assigned to them, and when the Keys is/are pressed on the keyboard, a certain action happens.. usually these are pre-programed OR user programed. Hope that helps.

I just bought a Sony Vaio at best buy and the ''geek squad'' wanted $40 to ''activate'' the second processor that supposedly doens't come active, they also were bragging that they would optimize the system...


They said what? Sounds like,
"Come sit beside me for a while, said the Spider to the Fly".

They're full of beans. Only if you have a computer that has TWO separate processors, that are in two processor sockets, is this done.

Your Sony laptop, has a processor made up of a single die chip, with two processor cores on it.

Dual core processors have their two processor cores activated all the time.
It is only if the second processor core is needed, that it will run.

The second processor core will operate if:

1.If more than one thread requires using both processor cores.
2.If an intense game requires both processor cores to operate.
3.If opening multiple programs, or applications, both processor cores will operate.
4.Using a 3D program that requires a lot of processor power.

To what extent, or percentage, that the second processor core operates at, is up to the task that is required of it.

It's like having a fuel dragster to just go down to the store, and buy bread. You would idle down to the store.
[One processor core operating]

Have to get down to the end of the dragstrip F-A-S-T?
Then you open the engine wide open.
[Two processor cores operating at 100%]

1.While you're on the internet, press the CTRL, ALT, and Delete keys, At The Same Time, to bring up the Task Manager. Now click on the Performance tab.

View CPU Usage.

2.Now open an intense program. (Such as an intense game for example)
Press CTRL, ALT and Delete keys at the same time, to bring up Task Manager. Click on the Performance tab.
Again, view CPU Usage.
Both processor cores are operating at 80% to 100%.

Optimize your computer system? What 'secret' do they supposedly possess?
NONE!

1.Keep your Start-Up menu down to a minimum. Only have the programs that need to start, when the computer starts. Activate the other programs manually, as you need them.

2.Keep your registry clean. I recommend using a registry cleaner on a regular basis. I use CCleaner. This registry cleaner is free, and works better than paid for versions. If it was not free, I would not recommend it here. That would be advertising.

3.Delete programs that you hardly use. Applications also. (DO NOT delete Windows programs, just programs you have downloaded, or manually installed yourself)

4.Keep your harddrive storage space to less than 50 percent full. Once a harddrive fills past this point, the computer starts slowing down.

Use external storage for more space. (External harddrive, and USB flashdrive for two examples)

As you can see, Numbers 1, and 3 above, may not apply to you at the moment. You indicate that you just bought the Sony laptop. Therefore you may not have installed anything yet. This info is for the future.

Numbers 2, and 4 may apply to you now. I would use a registry cleaner from the 3rd or 4th day, if you visit a lot of websites.
I would also use an external storage device from Day 1, if I had a lot of documents, and other information to store.
(School, College, Business) Keep your harddrive as close as it is/was, to Day 1.

(MAKE a backup of your harddrives contents right now! This is your Restoration Disk should something happen to your laptop in the future)

I need to download a program that requires windows and my computer says the program wont run in dos mode how do i get it to work?


if the program requires windows that means it was design to work with windows and not with DOS.. you may want to get an old version of the program that will actually run under DOS.. usually you may be able to do the opposite which is to run DOS program on windows.

if possible try to get a DOS version of the program you are trying to run, or better.. upgrade your operating sytem so you can run your program and possibly other DOS programs.

post the program you are looking to download and confirm what operation system you're running and I'll try to look for it with you.

PC is frozen when I press WIN-key


Do you see the Hard Disk Light ON during the time your computer is frozen? If that is the case there maybe an issue with the Hard Disk Controller.

When you installed a new version of Windows XP, did you format your entire Hard disk? (Just to make sure that your computer doesn't have a viral infection?)

Also, is it that the computer freezes when you press Alt+Enter ...or is it like the computer freezes after you press the Windows Key and then Alt+Enter?

Have you tried the Alt+Tab Combination?

Restore factory settings


what i would do is go into dos. If you cant get into dos find a windows 98 setup disk 3.5" this will have the dos files that will allow the computer to reconize a generic cd rom. This should allow you to get your recovery disk working. Your software problem could of created a firmware problem also. Not reconizing the cd rom. This solution will provide the basics to get your cd rom loading the recovery disk for you. If you have questions or more problems feel free to contact me and i will take you through it step by step
