You can try this. Remove the batteries, tirn off the machine, wait 3 minites, turn on the machine, it should reset all settings to defalt and clear the memory, replace the batteries.

There is a checkered box instead of the regular solid black box and it won't allow me to enter more than 5 digits. How do I fix it?

The calculator is out of memory. All you have left is enough ram to hold the content of five digits.You can reset the RAM by pressing [2nd][MEM][7:Reset][1:All Ram][2:Reset][ENTER][ENTER]. Press [CLEAR] to erase "Ram Cleared" message.
If you do not want to reset the whole RAm, you may proceed item by item, as follows.
  1. Press [2nd][MEM][2:Mem Mgmt/Del][1:All]
  2. You will see the list of the 6 lists L1-L6 (should be 12 B each)
  3. You see all apps, each with an sterirsk at the left (archived)
  4. You may also see programs archived or not
  5. Anything else should be deleted.
  6. To delete a non archived item, move the cursor to its line and press [DEL]. It disappears from the list.
  7. Do not remove too many large objets at the same time because the defragmenting of the RAM could hang the calculator.
  8. After removing a few items, press [2nd][Quit] to allow garbage collection, then restart the procedure to delete other objects.
Remember that many third party games and programs stay loaded in Ram even after having been terminated. These are the main culprits.

Hope it helps
Thank you for using FixYa.

How to delete multiple things off my acer laptop at the same time

A good place to start is...

Start>Run>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs

You can uninstall lots of programs here.

If you are trying to delete, lets say a bunch of files at once, here are some useful shortcuts.

Ctrl+Click will highlight everything you click on then you can hit delete once.

Click one item then Hold Shift+Click to select all files inbetween your first and last click.

Drag a box with the left mouse button to highlight multiple icons/files then hit delete.
