How to clean a keyboard


Shut down the computer and detach the keyboard connector before any cleaning procedure. Do not remove or connect a keyboard while the computer is running. Doing so may damage the machine, especially a non-USB based keyboard. Detaching the keyboard while the computer is running is safe when the keyboard is connected to the computer via usb.
For a quick cleaning, turn the keyboard upside down and use a can of compressed air to blow out any foreign matter. Be sure to do this in a location where falling debris can be cleaned up easily. Turn the keyboard upside down and tap on it a few times. You should see a bit of dirt fall out. Change the angle and tap harder to make most of it get out
3Clean the sides of the keys with a cotton swab dipped in isopropyl alcohol.Clean the individual keys and place them back in the keyboard.

HOw to Clean your keyobard effectively


Keyboard cleaningIf you're trying to clean a laptop keyboard see document CH000780 for additional help and information. All of the below information applies to standard desktop computer keyboards.
Why? Dirt, dust and hair can build up causing the keyboard to not function properly.
Procedure: Many people clean the keyboard by turning it upside down and shaking. A more effective method is to use compressed air. Compressed air is pressurized air contained in a can with a very long nozzle. Simply aim the air between the keys and blow away all of the dust and debris that has gathered there. A vacuum cleaner can also be used, but make sure the keyboard doesn't have loose "pop off" keys that could possibly be sucked up by the vacuum.
Why? If the keyboard has anything spilt into it (ie: pop, cola, Pepsi, Coke, beer, wine, coffee, milk, etc.), not taking the proper steps can cause the keyboard to be destroyed.
Procedure: Below are a few recommendations to help prevent a keyboard from becoming bad once a substance has been spilt within it.
If anything is spilt onto the keyboard turn the computer off immediately. Once the computer is turned off, quickly flip the keyboard over helping to prevent the substance from penetrating circuits. While the keyboard is upside down, shake the keyboard over a surface you do not mind getting wet or that can be cleaned up later. While still upside down, use a cloth to help clean out what can be reached. After you you have cleaned the keyboard to the best of your ability leave the keyboard upside down for at least one night allowing it to dry.
If a keyboard does not work after trying it again later it is recommended that it be replaced. If the keyboard works but some of the keys are sticky or cannot be pressed in you can attempt to do additional cleaning in attempt to resolve the issue. Unfortunately many times when any sticky substance such as a non-diet pop is spilt directly onto the keyboard it's usually a loss unless you plan on spending dozens of hours attempting to clean each key.
Why? A keyboard that is used by multiple people, such as students or different employees, may need to be disinfected to help the spread of germs.
Procedure: Turn off the computer. Spray a disinfectant onto a cloth or damp a cloth with alcohol and rub each of the keys on the keyboard. As mentioned in our general cleaning tips, never spray any type of liquid onto the keyboard.

The dvd-rom & the dvd-burner no longer operate.


Do the drives open still? so they just don't appear or work on the computeR?

Check the status from device manager: do the following:

right click on my computer (its on the desktop or in the start menu)
select manage (from the right click menu)
on the left side of the computer management window look into device manager.
now on the right side you have the device manager, look for cd/dvd drives do they have a ! or ? mark?

right click on one of the drives and select properties, on the properties window look at the status. what does it read on the status? please write it down exactly and send it to me with a comment on this page.

Flashing light on bottom left hand side of laptop


You did not mention which laptop model you have, which makes a diagnostic a little bit difficult.
The light you describe (3 discs) indicates that either the internal hard drive or optical drive is being accessed.
That is generally ok, if you read or write from your hard drive or you have a CD/DVD running.

It CAN indicate that you do not have sufficient memory installed and the RAM can't handle all the requests, so it has to write and read constantly to and form the hard drive. This is called "Memory swapping". This happens also if you are not doing anything that involves the hard or CD drive (in idle).

This would answer your question, but if you need any other information, come back here and let me know. In that case it would be helpful to know which operating system you are running and how much RAM you have installed.

Flipped\upside down screen on my compaq

Windows XP: Flipping the screen upside down and back again


Once, at University, someone had flipped the screens of all the public computers (running on Windows XP) of the English Department upside down. The wallpaper, desktop icons, fonts, mouse-cursor and even the start-up screen...everything was displayed or moved upside down. People could not check out their e-mails or surf or do anything.
To reverse the upside down screen mode, press ctrl, alt and the up arrow (arrows console) at the same time; the screen will probably go blank. Turn off the monitor, turn it on again and the display will be normal again. If you possess a sense of humour or are antisocial, press ctrl, alt and the down arrow simultaneously, turn off the monitor, turn it on again and everyone (excluding the culprit) will be desperate --> upside down! Works for Windows XP Home and Prof.
