    There must be a program that stopped working in the background of the computer. Try to press CTRL+Break (pause). If it doesn't work, press CTRL+ALT+Delete go to applications, highlight what program is running that you don't need or has stopped working, then click End Task.

    Press delete enter to set up so what can i do nothing is working

    Sound you are trying to get into the BIOS, some use key F2,F8, or F10, it will say very fast what the correct key is, it might be very fast.

    The first item is the key or key combination. The second is the model of PC or the maker of the BIOS. You'll see some companies listed many times, with different keystrokes. That's normal. (It's not that manufacturers can't make up their minds. It's just that they change suppliers and use different BIOS setups.)
    Delete: AMI or Award BIOS.
    Esc: Toshiba
    F1: Toshiba; Phoenix; some IBM PS/1 models.
    F10: Compaq.
    F2: NEC.
    Insert: IBM PS/2.
    Tab: eMachines.
    Reset button (press twice): Some old Dells.
    Ctrl-Alt-+: Various computers.
    Ctrl-Alt-?: Some old IBM PS/2 models.
    Ctrl-Alt-Enter: Some Dells, others.
    Ctrl-Alt-Esc: AST, Tandon, others.
    Ctrl-Alt-Ins: Zenith PCs, Phoenix BIOS.
    Ctrl-Alt-S: Phoenix BIOS.
    Ctrl-Alt-Shift with Del (on number pad): Olivetti.
    Ctrl-Esc: Many PCs.
    Ctrl-Ins: Some IBM PS/2s.
    Ctrl-S: Phoenix BIOS.
    Ctrl-Shift-Esc: Tandon

    CTRL ALT NOT printed on any key...where is it

    It's not one key, but a combination of three keys. Press the CTRL key, and the ALT key, and the DEL or DELETE key at the same time.

    Stays at 100% Cpu usage, I have E machine W3307

    there's a good chance you have a trijan, assuming you have an antivirs programme, run it in safe mode (F8 on startup and enter using safe mode), use the administrator account to log into windows, and then go to my computer icon, right click>properties>system restore tab, then turn off system restore.(viruses and trojans have a back up in system restore)

    Run anti virus programme, restart pc then turn system restore back on

    If you don't have an anti virus/spyware you can get a free download with free updates here, (choose the avg free download)
