WD40 is brilliant at removing label residue from anything - CDs, white goods, even footwear. Use it liberally or spray some on to a non-metal kitchen scouring pad. You can find a mid-size spray-can for 1 pound or less.

I recently had to deal with a terrible gooey mess left by a strip of velcro that had come adrift from a pvc waist-belt. Not even WD40 could shift it. After some research, I homed in on a US product called Goo Gone, which one can now buy in the UK on Ebay for around 9 pounds. I placed the belt on a rubbish sack, stretched out on the floor in a ventilated room and sprayed it around six times at hourly intervals. This completely ungooed the belt and what little residue remained was easily cleanable with soap and a scouring pad.

To solve my belt problem, I removed all the velcro strips, treated them all with Goo Gone until all the adhesive was neutralised and then re-attached them with superglue and stitching.

Goo Gone also claims to be able to remove chewing gum and, although I have not tried it, I would be suprised if it did not live up to that claim.

The Goo Gone spray bottle comes in a generous quauntity, which should last you for many years. To avoid buying fakes or lookalike products, check out their distinctive yellow and black design on the US Ebay site before going to the UK Ebay site.

WD40 is excellent for small jobs, but Goo Gone took my breath away. Which reminds me, avoid inhaling whilst using it and close the door behind you.

Good ungooing

Try to lossen the residue with a little white spirit, before wiping clean with a damp cloth, always use soft cotton cloths and wipe gently

Is there a wireless key somewhere

The wireless WIFI internet key is decided by your ROUTER not your laptop. If your internet connection is indeed by wireless and not by ethernet cable, you will need to find the router key, from your internet provider, guardian or if you are desperate, find the reset key on your router to reset the passkey to the factory default which will be shown on a sticky label on the router or in its manual. Punch this into the windows dialog box when required. Good Luck.

Keyboard problem

Try pressing both the left and right CTRL keys at the same time and

see if that releases CTRL.

Go to Start / Settings / Control Panel / Accessibility Options /

Keyboard Options.

Turn off CTRL lock if it's on.

If that solves it and to avoid future problems, press "Settings"

Turn off "Press modifier key twice to lock".

Turn on "Turn sticky keys off if 2 keys are pressed at once".

Or turn off "Use shortcut"

Clean your keyboard.

My a, caps lock and shift keys are not working. what is the problem?

It might be that you have by mistake turned on the sticky keys on the system.

Sticky Keys is an accessibility feature designed for people who have difficulty holding down two or more keys at a time.

When a shortcut requires a key combination such as CTRL+P, StickyKeys will enable you to press one key at a time instead of pressing them simultaneously

I would suggest you to check whether the sticky keys are turned on. Follow the steps mentioned below.

Click on Start and click on Control panel.

Click on 'Accessibility Options' and in keyboard tab make sure that there is no check mark near 'Use stickykeys'.

If there is a check mark then remove it and then click on Apply.

hope this helps

You need a data cable that connects your phone to your computer's USB port. This should be in the box that the phone came in together with a CD to install the Samsung software on your computer.

I hope this helps.

Hey! Can I find an Xp driver for toshiba satellite M305D S4831 which has been loaded with Vista one?

Please run the CD (labeled as RECOVERY) from Toshiba then run it with autorun feature. If you don't have one, you should obtain it from related manufacturer. To reveal the spesification of any driver configured in your computer, you must run the system information software, try to download from with the keyword: 'free everest download'. Just after you installed the 'everest' then you can find out what you need to run the right driver. Supposed you need driver from Intel then you just visit the site and click the download tab with sub-tab as 'driver'

Good Luck!

Bought a new computer and want to use usb 3g adapter on new computer. I think I need to install software, however there is no disk drive as it is a netbook

Dear johnls,
Try to copy the installation CD to a flashdisk the run the installation from flashdisk when you connect it via USB jack on your netbook.
Or try to connect the external Optic Drive (CD/DVD ROM), wait until the netbook complete the installation of your optic drive. Restart your netbook with external CD ROM connected via USB jack, then run the 3G installation from your External CD ROM.


Best regards,

VGA driver for toshiba A135-S4527

Toshiba does not provide XP drivers for this laptop. Installing all the updates from the Windows Update site did a lot of the drivers for me. HOWEVER, Windows Update will misdiagnose the display adapter. It will try to install a driver for the Intel 945GM but it must be some generic 945GM driver, because it will not give you full functionality (e.g., multiple display outputs, etc). Use the method I describe below to get the correct 945GM driver for this display adapter.

Hardware and drivers needed to run Win XP Pro on Toshiba Satellite A135-S4527
Run "infinst_autol.exe". This is an Intel Chipset Software Installation Utility (now called Intel Chipset Device Software I think). It will identify and load the proper driver files (.inf) for various things. I did this at the end last time, but if done near the beginning, it might take care of things like display adapter, etc. Check Intel's site for the most updated one. Go to

Display adapter is Mobile Intel 945GM Express Chipset Family
Driver was named win2k_xp14182.exe. I downloaded it initially from

Mouse is Synaptics PS/2 Port Touchpad
Driver file was called Can be downloaded from the Synaptics website.

Wireless adapter is Atheros AR5006EG
Driver can be gotten from Windows Update (or maybe the Win Vista CD too)

Ethernet adapter is Realtek RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC
Driver can be gotten from Windows Update (or maybe the Win Vista CD too)

Modem is Toshiba Software modem
Driver can be gotten from Win Vista CD.

During XP installation, drivers were automatically loaded for:
- multimedia card reader
- firewire port (IEEE 1394)
- DVD/CD drive

I hope this gets your laptop up and running.

Please rate my solution,
