This probably results from a setting that got changed in your messenger. One of the tabs on the messenger window is the path to the settings, but I don't know which as I use the messenger in the beta mail window. If you can't find the setting, you could alternately uninstall and reinstall messenger to restore the defaults.

If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!

Unplug every thing such as the CD/DVD trays, Hard Drive, take out any dial-up modems, network cards, video cards, etc. unplug even the mouse and keyboard. Try powering on agan. If the computer seems to work, then power back off and plug in one device then power on computer. Keep doing that until you find the bad device preventing the computer from turning on.

If that doesnt work then carefully remove the RAM completely then carefully replace the RAM. Now with on the Dynex power supply plugged in to the motherboard, try again. If still nothing, remove the RAM and try again. If it still does the same thing, then the motherboard is dead and needs replaced. If instead you get a series of beeps then the problem MAY be bad RAM. Try different RAM. If that doesnt help. The only thing left is taking out the CMOS battery, It is the coin shaped battery on the motherboard. Take it out and wait 20 seconds then put it back. I doubt it is the CMOS battery, but at this point it is worth a shot.

My husband has acer 4520 cant get question mark..when presses ? key he will get E or e


Oh this is a returning issue with my Canadian users. The keyboard is french, that is the one with the E letter things at the place you normally have the question mark. It is indeed a keyboard layout but it gets randomly selected. Saw this problem only on VISTA so I will describe how to do it in Vista.

Go to Control Panel, Regional and Language Options, Keyboards and Languages, Change Keyboards. Here you will see all keyboard layouts installed. Make sure you remove any that you do not need or if you see the french one even, remove that by selecting the one causing you problem and choose Remove.

If you don't remove the keyboard map, when this switch happens, you'll have to exit the application you're in (Outlook, for example), change keyboards, and restart the app. Changing keyboards without restarting the app doesn't change the mapping.

If the above solution for whatever reason does not work, just push Shift and Ctrl at the same time, hold it pushed for about 5-10 seconds and let go at the same time. You have to be in the active window (the application in which you tried to type and it gave you E-s instead of ?-s) for this to work. But please try my first suggestion first with the keyboard layouts because I am confident that is your problem.

Please rate if this solution was helpfull. :)

Look down to your task bar to the right , you will see a small grey square with the letter ''E'' in it click on the E and you will see captions, one will have a till to the left of it, the tick needs to be beside the UK English caption, this will make your PC see your keyboard in English format.

On my logitech keyboard Y-BH52 my back slash, comma, forward slash and bracket keys are typing in what looks to be french characters such as A's with accents on them...if you could provide any assistance...


hmmm it seems by mistake you have changed your key-board layout to french language.
  • Hold down Alt and press Shift. (Alt+Shift). Check the result by pressing thoes keys. If its back to original means you have installed both English/French both and can toggle pressing Alt+Shift.
  • Otherwise goto Start -> Control Panel -> Regional And Language Option.
  • Click on Language Tab, then Details button.
  • Now in settings tab you can see the languages installed on your system. You can remove un-wanted or/and select a default languages which you want.

Please post your feed-back
Thanks

Whenever I press the question mark key, I keep getting an e with an accent over it. How do I switch back to the question mark


wow...is that a standard keyboard? I don't know that I've ever seen that accented e(maybe it;s an E machine virus that came through some disk you handled?)..just kidding..

you may need to remove that keyboard(using mouse control) from device manager in control panel, and then do a hardware scan to see if it picks it up properly..
