If it uses the PS2 type mouse and keyboard connectors, there exists a very real possibility that you have the connectors reversed.

My keyboard can not work in English but Spanish.means some letters do not match. How can I solve this issue .this is a vaio vpcl 137fx/b OS windows 7 home premium


Actually not sure what your issue is here, again, you are not supplying enough information. Here is what I think you said, I have a VIAO with Win7 and it is configured for Spanish and it will not work for English because the keys on the keyboard are NOT mapped correctly. If this is the problem you will have to go into the Text Services and Input Languages dialog on Win7 and define any keyboards you wish to use. For American English there are a number of keyboards, but US and US-International are the most often used. If you find the dialog you may install new services for English (United States) and the corresponding keyboard layouts you wish to use. If you are using Spanish right now you should note that it will probably say Spanish (your country) - Spanish... You should be able to ADD a new language and keyboard layout. You can then use the language bar on the taskbar to select between Spanish and English keyboard layout when you want to switch between the two languages and key layouts. I use it often for European languages on Windows XP, 7 and also XUbuntu and it seems to work well on those without issue.

Emachine come up where it ask for me to hit f10 or f2 but it wont do anything. My keyboard or the mouse wont work. My emachine is a w3050. Looking for a diagram of how to hook hardrive cd and just to see...


Are you using a wireless mouse or keyboard? If so try using one that you plug in. As for the cd rom and hard drive all you need is one cable for each device hooked to seperate connectors on the motherboard. Ususally the hard drive will be sata which is a red cable and can only go onto one connector on the motherboard. the cdrom is an ide cable(grey usually) and there is a seperate connector for that on the mainboard.

There are three sections in the language application that you must work on.

1. The first tab, in the first section, set it to "English (United States), and in the second lower section, set it to United States.

2. The second tab, in the top section press the button and in the first section of the new box use the drop down and select "English (United States)-US. The box below should have what language the keyboard is set to input. If you make changes, the bottom right button is "Apply".

3. The third tab, in the first section, the drop down menu should be English (United States).

Once again, press the Apply button when you have finished making changes.

My keyboard and mouse will not work at all not even when rebooting! I bought another one and they will not work. Everything else that uses usb is still working! Help!


Here we go, this is the best way to avoid reinstalling duplicate hardware, which we have all done at one time or other. You need to get to the device manager, start, settings, control panel, system, device manager , hardware, now you will see everything installed in your machine, if you see duplicates for the mouse and keyboard remove them, if no yellow marks in the device manager, uninstall both the keyboard and the mouse, when uou reboot, it will have a pop up in the system taskbar that says, found new hardware, and then it will say installing the software for your new hardware. If this doesn't work then we need to go into the "install hardware" also in the control panel, but that should do it, I am giving you a lot of info, but sometimes we can't find you again until a day or two later so I want you to have all possible inf before you start. Also the easiest way of all is this. If the computer was working yesterday or last week, we can do a system restore thus restoring it to a time when everything was ok and everything was working, this is Start, accessories, system tools, system restore, pick the day from the choices shown on the calander and sit back as it restores your machine back to a working computer, have a good night and good luck,Gym
