Jumbled keyboard numbers


Are you typing on your laptop and notice the text has become illegible? What should be letters, have become numbers or symbols. This odd behavior can probably be explained be peering a little closer at your keyboard. Those little numbers on the keys. These numbers and symbols normally become active when you hold down the function key, usually labeled as the "FN" key. The "FN" key is similar to the Shift key, activating a second function assigned to a key. It can become active seemingly on it's own because a key is locked in the on position.

Before performing numerous key combinations, try the simple thing of lightly tapping the "FN" or "Num Lock" 5 to 6 times. There may be a small particle of something logged under the key that you can loosen, move, or crush down. Do not bang the keys, just press normally. Next focus on the "Numlock" key which usually located with the "Print Screen" and "Pause" key on the top right of your keyboard. Press the "Numlock" key, then press a scrambled key to see if it's normal. Older model laptops may require you hold down at the same time, the "Ctrl-Shift-Numlock" keys. Newer models may require holding down the "Shift" key and pressing the "Numlock" key. Turn off the Function key with the following combinations. Hold down the "FN" key and hit the "Numlock", Hold down the "FN" key and hit the "Scroll" key and Hold down at the same time "Fn+F12+Num Lock"

I forget my password plz help me


You will have to reinstall whatever Mac OS X system you were running by inserting the disc, then shutting down the computer, restarting the computer while you hold down Apple button + C. This will begin the installation process and you will start from scratch. You will most likely lose all of your old information.
If you want to keep all of your files and try a quicker but a little more trickier process. Create a new Admin user account to override your forgotten password account, here is how:
1. Turn on your computer When the computer chimes press and hold Apple button + S The screen will be black with white text
2. Type the following: /sbin/mount -uw / Hit the Return Key
3. Type: rm /var/db/.applesetupdone Hit the Return Key
4. Type: reboot Hit the Return Key
Once your computer has restarted use the Setup Assistant to create a new Admin User account and you can delete your old account while saving all of your old files.

I tried to renew my Webroot AntiVirus with Anti-spyware. I ran into a compatibility issue with vista. I uninstalled both the firewall and antivirus, thinking this will help, and now I can not install...


HI There,

I recommend that you use Sytem Restore to go back to a point before the problem began.

1. Click the Start Button
2. Select All Programs> Accessories> System Tools and click on System Restore.
3. Select a point before you tried to install/renew your antivirus and restore to that point.

Your description of what you were trying to do was not completely clear to me so I have to guess. If you were trying to install a different product than Webroot, then you need to completely uninstall Webroot BEFORE you install a different anti-virus.

Also, after uninstalling Webroot, hold down the Windows key on the keyboard and press the R key. A run window will appear. Type in %temp% and hit enter. When the Temp File window appears hold down the ctrl key and hit the A key. All temp files should now be highlighted. Hit the delete key. A message may appear saying Windows cannot delete a file because it's in use. This is normal. Check the box in that window for Skip All similar files and hit ok.

Reboot your computer and then install the new Antivirus.

Good Luck
