Unable to type without holding down shift key!

I have a packard bell easynote r4560. all of a sudden when i started my laptop up after it being in standby, some of the keys were not registering when i was typing and then some started coming out in a different order to how i had typed them! some of the keys worked at some times then at other times i would have to hit the key 20 times before it would work and some just refuse to work at all. i restarted my computer many times but it made no difference. the only way i can type properly (and how i am typing now!) is by having the caps lock on and holding down the shift key (alternatively, i could type without the caps lock but this would all be in capitals!) obviously this becomes difficult for using numbers, unless I put the num lock on but then the buttons to turn the num lock on and off often don't work. i thought maybe i had hit a random button without realising it but i went through all my functions and nothing changed. i tried the different profiles on my computer and it does not seem to be limited to one profile. i was trying to clean under my keypad but couldn't work out how to lift it up (although i am sure i have managed to do this before somehow!) please help, i am at my wits end! and my little finger is hurting from having to hold down the shift key the entire time...!

    When you 'cleaned' the keypad, what exactly did you do?



    It sounds like you need to replace the keyboard.

I have internet service through the cable service on my laptop and want to connect it to the tablet without losing it for the laptop


cable internet ?? if so then you have a cable modem at your account location , now there are a few different types of cable modems , and you may need your cable provider to help in answering what kind you have , but based on what you stated u want to be able to do , your going to need a device called a router , some cable modems have these built in and some need them added out board to them , but anyway you need a router to be able to do this , after your sure you have a router , then resubmit your question on how to add a device to a router (or your cable provider may do this 4 you ask them!) and myself or one of the others that know how to do this here will then reply with how , we will need the exact model of router you got to be able to do this

Will not start up


hi , Reuben

I would suggest you try safe mode.
Safe mode is a troubleshooting option for Windows that starts your computer in a limited state. Only the basic files and drivers necessary to run Windows are started. The words "Safe Mode" appear in the corners of the display to identify which Windows mode you are using. If an existing problem does not reappear when you start in safe mode, you can eliminate the default settings and basic device drivers as possible causes.
If you don't know the cause of the problem, you can use the process of elimination to help you find the problem. Try starting all of the programs you commonly use, including the programs in your Startup folder, one by one, to see if a program might be the cause of the problem.
Follow the steps to boot the computer in safe mode with networking:
1. Restart your computer if it is powered on.
2. Tap the F8 key after your computer initially powers on.
3. Once you see the Advanced Boot Options menu you can stop tapping.
4. Use the up/down arrow keys to highlight your selection.
5. Select Safe Mode with Networking and press Enter.
6. You should see drivers loading, and then please wait.
7. You should then be at the Welcome Screen.
8. Logon to your computer using an account with Administrator privileges.

Screeen is upside down


If you have a Windows OS, press and hold the ALT and CTRL (control) keys and then press the Up arrow. (If that doesn't work, try holding the Alt and CTRL keys and pressing the left (or right) arrow key twice.) If that fails, right click on the desktop (Windows+D will minimize all programs), anywhere with no running programs or icons. Then select the Screen Resolution option. Look for the line Orientation; use the drop down menu to select the correct orientation. Click Apply and then confirm the setting change if a confirmation window pops up. (This works in Windows 7 and 8.) For older Windows versions on laptops, you may need to select Graphics Properties (or a similar line) and then repeat this. The Windows screen rotation option is dependent on your video card. With some models, you'll need to open the graphics card properties to undo the rotation. You should see a line for the graphics adapter when you right click on the Display.

For Macintosh OS, make sure that the System Preferences is closed. Then open it by pressing Option/alt + CMD . Select the line Display. Find the button labeled Rotation: Standard then choose the correct screen orientation.

I hope this helps.

Button keeps blinking


It sounds like it could be either the battery is going bad and not holding a charge or the adapter is. I have had really good luck with similar problems going to places like Batteries +, and large electronic retailers, and my favorite the small local mom and pop computer store; where I end up asking them If I could try one of the adapters from the floor model to eliminate if is a faulty adapter. Other then that I'd if its not out of warranty contact Acers online chat support at http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/service

Try the following: Using your FN key and the F7 Key together it might work again. You could have toggled the touchpad off. If that does not work you have issues with either the touchpad or the operating system. Best of Luck.

How do i reset my computer to an earlier date?


Most computers have a RTC or "real time clock" in the BIOS. BIOS (or "Basic Input Output System") controls how data gets into and out from the processor (via keyboard, disk, etc.). Be careful making changes. The BIOS is normally only accessable when the computer is powered on or reset, and then only while performing the POST (or "Power On Self Test"). At this time your screen may display text describing memory, drives, controllers, etc. Some machine have a "silent boot" enabled which displays a manufacturer's graphic or logo instead of this data. It is during this time the the BIOS may be accessed. Depending on the manufacturer of your computer, a key (Delete, Escape, F1 or some other) or key combination (ALT + F1, ALT + S, or some other) will be needed. It is required to press the key or key combination prior to the Operating System loading message(s). This can be done be repeatedly pressing the key (or key combination) once every second (or two) during the POST. Holding the key(s) down the entire time - or pressing them too often will result in an error, and require starting over again.

Once the BIOS screen is presented, you will have to scroll the entire page(s) to find the clock. Most BIOS brands have more than just a single page of settings. Using the the up, down, left, right, PgUp, PgDn & Enter keys - navigate to the clock hours and minutes and adjust as needed. Make sure that you SAVE changes before exiting the BIOS screen. Upon exit, the computer will reboot with your settings.

Your Operating System may also provide a way for you to change the system time (and date) as well. Try clicking on the time / date to see if it will bring up a dialog box that allows you to make the change.

I hope this helps and good luck! If my answer was helpful, please rate it "4 thumbs up" Thanks!
