press the proper function key to allow a boot up into safe mode with COMMAND PROMPT. Some PCs use F2... function keys are on the top line of a std QWERTY keyboard. type the following in the space next to the backslash. chkdsk/f

then hit the ENTER key

Your PC will do into self-diagnostics and repair mode via the Backdoor. Wait a long while it finishes all the tests and repairs

It should boot up normally afterwards.

Acer laptop stuck on Windows boot manager


1. Restart the Acer Aspire netbook by pressing the "power" button on the netbook's keyboard or by pressing the "CTRL," "ALT" and "DEL" keys at the same time.
2. During startup, hold down the "F8" function key immediately when you see the "Acer" splash screen and the option for entering "Setup."

3. Keep pressing the "F8" key until the "Advanced Boot Options" menu appears.
If you receive a "keyboard error," restart the Acer Aspire and repeat step 2.

4. Use the arrow keys to navigate to the "Safe Mode" selection on the "Advanced Boot Options" menu.
The arrow keys are located on the right-hand side of the Acer Aspire keyboard.

5. Press the "Enter" key to execute the "Safe Mode" selection.
The Windows operating system will now start in "Safe Mode" and you can perform a system restore or make needed changes to get your Acer Aspire to boot normally again.

My Samsung laptop's (np-r430-jb01ae) function keys are not working. how could i solve it?


Step 1:
Function keys are special keys used for assigning program shortcuts and specialty tasks to the keyboard. They are located at the top of most keyboards and labeled "F1" through "F12." Some keyboards may only feature 10 function keys, while others may have as many as 18. These keys often go unutilized by the average computer user, but they may have very important tasks for some users, which can lead to problems when the keys do not respond. Fixing nonresponsive or malfunctioning function keys is quite simple, and should only take a few minutes.

Connect your keyboard to your computer, and power it up. Open a program that uses the function keys such as Microsoft Word or Microsoft Excel. Check your keyboard for an "F-Lock" or "Function Lock" key. This key is used to toggle function-key support; when it is toggled on, the function keys will not work. Press the "F-Lock" key and then try using a function key in the selected program. "F1" is a good key to test, because it is set to open a "Help" document in all Microsoft software. If the key does not work, press the "F-Lock" key a second time, and test the keys again. If the keys still do not work and you are running the Windows 7 operating system, you may need to install a "hotfix" from Microsoft to fix the key functionality. Navigate to the link entitled "Microsoft Support: Some Function Keys do not Work Correctly." (See Below.) Some function keys or keyboard shortcuts do not work correctly on a computer that is running Windows 7 http://support.microsoft.com/kb/975741 Resolve unexpected Function (F1 - F12) or other special key behavior on a Microsoft keyboard http://support.microsoft.com/kb/894513 Click on "View and request hotfix downloads" located beneath the title of the article to access the Microsoft Hotfix database. Agree to the terms and conditions, then download the hotfix. When the download is finished, run the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions. You may need to restart your computer after the installation is complete. Your function keys should now work properly.

I am trying to fix my boss' Inspiron Mini 1012 - the Webcam is not opening. unable to find the driver. Where can i download the driver for his webcam?


@christinwayn

This computer uses the generic driver for Windows XP and Windows 7 and thus there's no need to install a driver. If you need to re-install the Webcam driver, try to do the following:

For Windows XP / 7
1. Press the Windows Key+R on the keyboard (the windows key looks like this ray_tosh_1.jpg ).
2. Type devmgmt.msc then press Enter.

ray_tosh_7.png

3. Expand Imaging Devices, right click on your camera and choose Update Driver Software

ray_tosh_12.jpg

4. Click Search Automatically for Updated Driver Software

ray_tosh_13.jpg

If this doesn't work, I recommend doing a System Restore (if it was working a few days or weeks ago, step by step guide here) or a System Recovery (if you don't mind starting from scratch - you need to press F8 simultaneously during boot-up > choose Repair Your Computer and click on your account > Choose Dell Factory Image Restore).


Good luck

Keyboard of myASUS K50IJ-XA1 15.6-Inch Versatile Entertainment Laptop (Black) is locked How to unlock the same? Kindly help


Well, do you mean only the keyboard is locked? Can you boot the system properly? Is the mouse working? Which Operating System is running on your Laptop?
Here are a couple solutions you can try before you let me know the above queries.
1. Press and hold down the Windows Logo key on the keyboard while pressing the L key on the keyboard once. In other words, Press Windows Key + L once. If this doesn't work, don't forget to include the Fn key while pressing these two keys. Windows+Fn+L. Still nothing?
2. Turn off the Machine, remove the battery and unplug the charger. Leave it for at least 10 seconds, you can press the power On button on the laptop without the battery and the charger installed/plugged in. Now re-install the battery, and turn back On the machine. It should work.
If you need further help, if the problem persists, Let me know with the details.
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

There might be a hardware problem with your keyboard. You can run a quick diagnostics for the keyboard. You can access diagnostics by going to the advanced bood option.When you turn on the system as soon as you see the Dell logo keep tapping on F12, select diagnostics and pre boot system assessment will load. After running a quick diagnostics for the system it will give an option to select Custom test and select the test for keyboard . It will ask you to tap on the keys and if there's an error shows you have to replace the internal keyboard already.

Keyboard


No keys on my keyboard work. Cause: This issue is often caused by either a bad keyboard, bad interface board, and/or bad motherboard.
Answer: Disconnect the keyboard from the computer and connect another known working keyboard to it. If this is a PS/2 keyboard and connecting multiple keyboards or a known working keyboard to the computer PS/2 port does not work unfortunately it's likely that the PS/2 port is bad. Because this port is part of the motherboard this will require that you replace the motherboard. Alternatively if replacing the motherboard is too costly or not an effective solution you could also consider using a USB keyboard if USB ports are available on the computer.

Not all keys on keyboard work.

Reference number: CH000305
Not all keys on keyboard work. Issue: Not all keys on keyboard work.
Cause: This issue is often caused by a bad keyboard or software preventing these keys to be pressed.
Additional information: This document contains information about troubleshooting a keyboard that has some functioning keys. If no key on the keyboard is working see document CH000955.
Solution: Verify that the key is not working in more than one application. It is possible that some keys may not be used in all programs. This generally always applies to the Function keys F1 through F12. If not all keys are working in all programs and you have Windows, attempt to boot the computer to a MS-DOS prompt or safe mode and test the keyboard in DOS. Information about getting into safe mode can be found on document CHSFAFE and information on how to boot to DOS can be found on document CHDOS. If it appears that a substance has been spilt into the computer, please review document CH000303. If all above suggestions have been completed or if you are not running Windows, it is likely that the keyboard and/or keys are bad and it is recommended that the keyboard be replaced with a new one.
