    When I watch videos on YouTube they are too dark, also some photos are too dark. How can I brighten up the picture so I can see the images better? I have an old gateway computer with windows 2000 professional. I understand there is supposed to be something on the keyboard to press to brighten the picture but I don't know what or where?

I have a Micro Innovations KB730/Kb740X key board. and scine I upgraded from Vista Ultimate to Windows 7 Ultimate, the extra buttons and scoller do not work. it functions as typing key board only. Is there...

Are you saying that everything worked under Vista? As far as I know this keyboard has not had an up to date driver since Windows 2000. When you do not run the driver the scroller and the top row of buttons will not work but the other features will work.

When you do run the old driver the scroller will work, the some of the top buttons can be assigned to other functions but some cannot. Also, when the driver is running the forward and back buttons only work for Internet Explorer.

The symbols above the numbers on my keyboard just stopped working. Would this be a hardware problem or a technical one. I am using someone else's computer to send this message as I am unable to get into my...

Hi, I'm guessing you have tried using both the left shift and the right shift?.
if one works and the other doesnt I'd say the keyboards stuffed.

If its a funky multimedia keyboard there perhaps may be some key/button to enable/disable shift and or special characters, but I have never seen a keyboard like that.

Do all the numbers and alpha characters work, its just to sybols about 1 to 10?.

This is a wireless keyboard?
Maybe reset the keyboard, normally the base unit and the bottom of the kboard and mouse have a reset/reconnect button, worth a try but I suspect it wont help.
Trying new batteries probably wont help either but probably worth a try.

Failing that, I'd plug in an old usb/ps2 keyboard into your pc and see if that works OK (you'll need to reboot first if its a ps2 keyboard), just to rule out any strange software issues.

All that said however, I suspect you may be looking at a new keyboard.
I do think its worth trying the above first though.
Good luck.

My Gateway laptop - 2 yrs old - just developed problem - some letter keys actualy type numbers ... eg "M" becomes zero,total of nine, while the zero number key types"/". Help!

Sounds like you have turned on the NUM LOCK on the laptop keyboard. If you look closely you will see the numbers on those keys (maybe in a different colour).

You need to turn off NUM LOCK again. On the laptop I'm looking at, this is done by pressing Fn and END together, but the key should be marked with NUM LOCK as well.

Gateway laptop nv 79 mouse touch pad just stopped working its like its frozen an wont move its only 3 days old helppppppppp

I had this exact same problem and believe me, I flipped out too. I took mine into Best Buy though because it was only 5 days old and the guy from the Geek Squad showed me that there are the touch buttons above the keyboard and the one with the square box with the finger pointing to it actually locks the touchpad just so if you are using another mouse, it will not interfere. So try hitting that button and see if that works.

Best of luck to you.
