You seem to have your PC set to a UK keyboard. Look in the bottom right hand side of the bar at the bottom of the screen. if you can see EN in white writing you are set to UK. Click on it and select US. If not then let me know and I will let you know other ways of changing it.

NTLDR is compressed -- on my emachine laptop -- I seem to be in a vicious circle here.

You can try to fix the NTLDR compressed issue by repairing it using the Windows XP OS Installation Disc

1. Restart your computer, make sure that the boot priority is on the DVD/CD Rom drive
2. Press any key to boot from CD...
3. When the Welcome setup shows up press "R" to go to Recovery console
4. Press 1 to choose the drive where the OS is installed, or a different number if your computer is configured for multibooting
5. Just press enter for the password, but if you have administrator password type in your password.
6. Type this command without quotes "attrib -c ntldr"
7. Restart your computer and it should fix the problem, if not, tell me what happen

Windows logo comes on and then followed by a black screen and tried safe mode/VGA and still the same and the cursor is moving about the black sreen and nothing else-- could you help it's windows...

Try pressing the F8 key at the startup (after power-on and before the logo comes up).
Choose "Fail-safe" mode using the arrow keys on your keyboard and press enter twice.

When windows is in failsafe mode there is a number of ways you can fix the problem.

Try this:
Open "My computer", right-click on your harddrive and choose "properties"
From there scan the drive for errors (mark the 2repair automatically") and fix them.
Reboot the pc...

Good luck

" is displayed when @ key is pressed and visa versa on my acer 2414 laptop.

You may have your keyboard set to Italian or Spanish configuration. The shift of the 2 is a quote mark on my Italian friend's laptop.

I "fat-fingered" something while typing some numbers into my excel spreadsheet, and now only the suport "upper case" of the numbers of my number section work--so I am unable to now type...

Does your k/b have a "shift lock" button... if so press it to disable the "shift lock"

If using the numeric keypad, ensure you have "num lock" ON
