    I was getting other key errors but as you can imagine to write a full description in the original post wasn't easy. I turned it upside down and gave it a decent shake and removed some debris from behind the keys, the problem remained until the following afternoon when the problem just simply disappeared! Maybe I do/will need a new keyboard but for now everything's fine Thanks

Print screen key on computer.


On a windows computer by hitting print screen you are only copying an image of your computer screen to your clipboard you then have to paste it into an imaging program and save it. For example ... hit the print screen button on your keyboard -> go to start -> programs -> accessories -> paint -> then click the edit menu and click paste you should then see the screen shot of you computer in the paint window you then can go to file -> save and save the image somewhere on your computer.

You might want to print this out:

1) Turn off your laptop.

2) Press the "on" button on your laptop, and *immediately* start tapping on the F8 key on your keyboard. This should bring up a black screen with white text on it.

NOTE: You may get a message saying "keyboard error, press F1 to continue." If this happens, press F1 and then keep tapping on the F8 key.

NOTE: If the Windows screen comes up, turn off the computer and try again until you get to a black screen with different startup choices on it.

3) Once you have reached the startup choices screen, use the arrow keys on your keyboard to highlight "safe mode." Press the Enter key. If you are asked to choose your operating system, just press Enter again.

This will start a lot of text scrolling on your screen. Just be patient. When it stops, you will see a login screen. Log in under your name (sometimes this is "owner").

4) You will now be logged in to you computer in Safe Mode. A message will pop up asking if you want to use Safe Mode or System Restore. Click on System Restore.

5) You should now have the option to undo your last System Restore. Choose this option and follow the instructions on your screen to get back to where you were before you tried to restore your laptop.

If you need further help after that, please reply with the name and model number of your laptop. For example, "Dell Inspiron 530," or "Compaq Presario 3000." Also let me know what version of Windows you are using, for example "XP" or "Vista."
