    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..

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.

I have a Toshiba Satellite A215-S7462 and the keyboard is acting weird. when I type and press H key it automatically goes in front of the last alphabet i type and when I press down up and side arrow keys...

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.

My daughters key board on her lap top has started to act crazy you can't backspace and you can not type double letters you have to wait a second for it to keep typing any suggestions

First, try to connect an external USB keyboard & see if it will work fine.
If the external USB keyboard works fine, then you will need to replace your laptop's keyboard, as there is almost nothing that can be done to fix a defective laptop keyboard.

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
