    OK, i dont know why it posted that, but here is the problem....

    Out of the blue my wife lost all her sound, and thats not all folks, it also now does this retarded thing that after you shut the lid and send it into hibernation, then open it later, the only way to resume windows is to hit the touch button above the keyboard to activate "Quickplay", then you have to close out of that which will then resend the computer back into hibernation, then spontaniously, by itself, will then turn right back around and resume windows and actt like nothing ever happened. Let me know if that doesnt make sense. Thanks!

Is this xp or vista?

sounds like vista doing iys own thing again!

Have you tried running checkdisk and then a good defragmentation?

Always my first move with odd software problems

    RUN checkdisk first

    go:My Computer/right click C drive and select properties/tools/ then select Error Checking/Check Now

    tick both boxes and click start

    in the next window click yes and then reboot

    do not elect to cancel disc check when machine boots


  • wigglybus Dec 17, 2008

    Next try system restore

    Go to Start/Programes/accessories/System tools/ \System Restore and elect to restore to an earlier time.

    select a date some time previous to when things started going wrong and follow it through

    That may do it

    If that fails then you are down to a reinstall usiong the original disc or another.

    If you have to go for a reinstall then you MAY get the option of a repair install which will mean no loss of data, but that is not always offered..

Tip

Typing on a laptop, cursor jumps to different places, you suddenly type in a...


This is a very common problem to people who purchase a new laptop, or change from a desktop computer to a laptop. When typing, the cursor suddenly moves all over the place (but usually up) and you find yourself typing elsewhere in the document.

The secret is... the touchpad.

When typing on a standard keyboard, people usually rest their palms on the front portion of the keyboard, or on a special palmrest. Typing on a laptop is a slightly different experience - you have to keep the hands more apart, to avoid placing them on the touchpad.
But even if the hands are apart, you have to move them slightly while typing to comfortably reach the upper rows of keys. Depending on typing habits, the movements will be larger or smaller, but there is always some movement.

Now consider this. If you look at your hand from the side, you will notice, that the base of your thumb protrudes down the lowest. When moving the hands while typing, you very gently touch/stroke the touchpad with the base of your thumb - even if you don't feel it :)
Unfortunately the touchpad feels it, and acts as if you deliberately moved the cursor and placed it somewhere above the spot in the document you were actually typing in.

There are two remedies.

First, and one that has to be excercised anyway, is to try and keep the palms well above the surface of the touchpad. It takes some practice to change one's typing habits, but eventually you'll do it. It's just a matter of finding a palm placement that will be equally comfortable, but will also lower the possibility of involuntarily touching the touchpad.

Second is to go to your system's controls, find settings for the pointing device, and search for options regarding touchpad sensitivity.

There are multiple flavors of these settings, so it's not possible to give one standard recipe, but if you have an original touchpad driver installed (as oposed to using a standard mouse driver, which is enough for the system to recognize the touchpad), there should be a special settings screen for it, and among other options, a sensitivity setting.
Sometimes there's also an option (checkbox) designed specifically to fix this issue - usually it's called something like "eliminate problems with light touch" or sth to that effect.

Please try it, I guarantee that in 99% of the "sudden cursor movement" cases this is the actual cause :)

Good luck, and please don't forget to come back and rate the tip if helped :)

My laptop keboard is acting up sometime the letters dont want to type.sometime its a letter and sometime its another letter and then sometime it works perfectly


You may have unwanted debris under the keys. Turn the keyboard upside down and brush gently between the keys. If the problem then affects another key you know you are on the right track - the debris is moving around.

This is caused by a short in the keyboard. Either something was spilled into the keyboard, or it was hit by a hard object.
Search EBay! for a replacement keyboard. Most of the time you can find them for $35-$50 and have a professional install it for you.

If you can't get the @ symbol to come up or it is giving you the " symbol instead....the location and/or regional settings are not set to United States. Go to the control panel > Regional and Language settings > go through the tabs and set all to English-United States, this includes system location and keyboard settings. Change all and reboot.

Hello, my keys on the keyboard are acting up. The'j' key gives me the space bar and some of them dont give me anything...i can't even type in my username to get on


Hi, this can happen sometimes, the keyboard gets dirty or has something spilt on it. If you are confident, you can remove clean and replace, but if not I would get a shop to put a new keyboard in.
Sorry this is not straight forward
