Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

My keyboard & mouse keep going off (MX5000) This has happened so many times, I would like to get a new keyboard and mouse. I have a 3 year warranty, and I'm angry today, because I was very busy in my home office, and people came to pick up checks and I couldn't print them. I'm on my notebook right now. I'm so tired of dealing with this. I have purchased Logitech for years, and I would think they would like to continue serving my needs.

Check the rechargable battery, in the mouse and keyboard if it's wireless, if not, get back with me. Also check your bluetooth settings, I am leaning more toward that. Bluetooth is sometimes troublesome. Use the default settings, if you can, keep a spare usb mouse around for times like this. These machines get touchy sometimes, and the more "stuff", they have to do, the more likelly a problem will arise.If that's not the problem please let me know if you installed any new hardware or sofware apps, since the last time you used it for this task, thanks

The tab key on my computer is going crazy, intermittently, without me touching it.


I may not be understanding your problem but it could be as simple as a sticky key. Most keyboards have keys that can pop off for cleaning. And if you can't clean it enough you can take it in to have it cleaned or buy and new keyboard. The computer air cleaner in a can. Don't remember what they are called but it shoots frosty pressurized air to the dusty or sticky area and drys instantly. When I see a computer is going haywire a good cleaning of the cob-webs, dust and sticky residue makes any computer run better as well as clean out your computer's fan system which prevents components from getting too hot or wires melting or shorting out.

Computer Buying Tips


Tips in buying computers

1. What should I buy? Branded or non branded computer.
Branded computers are known as quality products. They are manufactured under certain standards and quality control methods. But the disadvantage is the high price. In the other hand non branded PCs are low in price but cannot guarantee the quality. Whether if you buy branded or non branded following details will be help you to make a decision easily.

2. Warranty

I consider this as the most important of all computer buying tips. Every new computer should carry minimum 1 year warranty for parts and labor. Please check the warranty period and conditions carefully before purchasing a computer. Some suppliers provide additional years of warranty with an additional charge. My personal advise is to go for this extended warranty. Its worth.

3. Supplier

Always buy from a reputed supplier. Don't buy from small shops just to save few dollars. Most of small computer shops are using cheap quality parts. Also you will be in trouble in getting warranty if they close down shops within one year.

4. Software license

You may get operating system and few additional software packages free with your computer. Please check whether they are licensed copies and you should get all documents related to license.

5. System configuration

Think what kind of work you are going to do with your computer. Most of the users are purchasing computers to browse Internet. Then an average PC with 256MB memory, Pentium IV CPU, 64MG graphic card, 20GB Hard drive will be enough. But if you are going to use powerful games etc then go for 1 GB memory, 128MB or more VGA, 88GB + HDD

6. Internet / Networking

How are you connecting to the Internet? If you're using a high speed Internet connection, such as cable broadband or DSL, you'll want to make sure you have a network card built into your system. If you have a wireless network at home or at the office, save money and installation time by buying the wireless card built right into the computer.

7. Monitor

Monitors have different sizes and types such as 17", 21", flat screen etc. Don't go for 21" screen unless you are a graphic designer or CAD operator. The price difference between 17" to 21" is very high. Flat (slim) monitors are easy to use and looks good. Don’t throw away your monitor if it's still working properly. Instead, keep it and save a chunk of money by just replacing your old CPU [computer tower]. Monitors last much longer than CPUs and the technology is usually compatible between your old monitor and the new CPU. However, if you’re dissatisfied, then monitors, keyboards and mouse are the three tools to spend extra money on, since you use them every day!

8. Operating System

Always ask for the latest Operating System

Why does screen go black and keyboard and mouse no longer work?


Hello,

I'm not sure what Operating System you are using on your PC. But from what I can see, you might be using Windows XP, Vista and/ or 7. This kind of abnormality usually happens when the computer is infected with a Trojan or Malware. Is your antivirus software upto date and functioning well? Scan your PC and clean it fine.

If this still happens, you might be having some malfunctioned hardware; Motherboard, Ram, Keyboard or Mouse. Check these carelefully to ensure that they are working great.

Lastly, if this still happens, your Operating system might be having way too many errors that it might call for a re-installation. Backing up data and doing a clean re-installation might be something to look at.

Please let me know on how it all goes.

i assumed that you use device PS2 (Mouse & Keyboard), this rarely situation, but you haved installed and not more better, because the problem not with your system, but with your hardware, maybe you can change with USB Mouse Device and for Keyboard PS2 is better than USB Keyboard.

PLEASE HELP.. KEYBOARD AND MOUSE ARE COMPLETELY DEAD


If you can bott the computer normally and don't have to type a password in, then go the control panel and then choose device manager. Scroll down to the mouse and keyboard plus signs and right click on the mouse and keyboard one at a time and select uninstall. When the original mouse and keyboard have been uninstalled, reboot the computer. When Windows starts back up it will be forced to search for the new hardware and will install the drivers for it. If it wants to search for new ones allow it. If you have to type a password, you will have to go and get a usb keyboard that works off one of the usb ports. If this doesn't work, reboot the computer with the Vista disc in. Click any button to boot from the cd. When the windows files load and windows starts, choose repair, choose the windows installation and let windows search for problems and see if it can fix them. If all fails, go to system restore and back the computer up a few days and let system restore fix the problem by taking you back in time a few.

Have a Acer Aspire E380 amd athlon 64 x 2 dual core 4200 with 1024mb ddr sd ram, one year old, push power button, can here fan going but it just beeps, nothing else happens just beeps every few seconds.


Hi there,

Your problem can arise from several things:

1. Keyboard not connected,
2. Monitor not connected
3. RAM error (defect RAM)
4. Graphic card defect.
5. HDD error

Solutions:
1. Have a look, check if both keyboard and mouse is mounted tight?
2. Have a look, is it mounted tight?
3. If, you have two blocks, on each 510MB, you swap them around, or, leave one at teh time, fire up, still the beeping, turn it off, take this one out, and put the other in.
If your RAM is one block of 1024MB, you would have to by yet another one to do this (and, it won’t hurt to have 2048MB, only make it faster.
4. Have you got another disk, put it in, Install your OS, and fire up.

If none of the above works, then I hope for you that the warranty is still active.

Regards
/Teis

If, this on the other hand was of some kind of help do vote before you leave, -thank you.

We have just purchased a Mikomi keyboard and mouse. The mouse is working perfectly, dispite numerous battery changes the keyboard is refusing to work at all.


1.)When you buy new batteries from the market you nrmally don't check the manufacturing date on the cover pack or at the bottom of the battery. This is where the retailers take you for a ride. Always ask for fresh stock when buying batteries.
2.)Check for loose contact or oxidation or corrosion of battery terminals in the chamber where batteries are installed. In case these are cordless devices, make sure nothing is obstructing the keyboard's line of sight with the infra red transceiver installed on your table top.
3.) If it is within the warranty period, get it exchanged for a new one immediately. No vendor can refuse that.

Hope this helped.

(TIP: never leave batteries inside any gadget when its not going to be used for over a week. Example if you folks are going on a holiday, then remove batteries from gadgets like mouse, keyboard, etc. i.e. gadgets tht you are going to leave behind. This causes the batteries to leak & damage your precious gadgets, at times beyond repair)
