SOURCE: cant find the number lock key on my acer 6920 laptop

I think for your laptop the number lock key is a second function... Try holding down the function (Fn) key and pressing the F11 key, hopefully that will turn your number lock on/off.

SOURCE: my laptop keyboard is typing different letters and numbers

It sounds like your keyboard is starting to go. Try plugging a usb keyboard and using that. If your keyboard needs replacing, it may be around $50, but that will depend.

SOURCE: hp laptop keyboard won't type "b n 1"or ''tab esc'' other keys ok..

Either your keyboard cable needs to be reseated or your keyboard is going bad and needs to be replaced. The keyboard cable is under the keyboard and it attaches to a slot on the motherboard. You'll have to partially disassemble the laptop to get to it. Hopefully you're not having this problem because you spilled a liquid on the keyboard.

Here's a fail safe alternative. Bring up google's website www.google.com and in the search box type "download.cnet.com" (without the quotes) and click the link to go to their site. When the site comes up look immediately to the left and you will see a gray area that says Find Software. Type in "free virtual keyboard" (without the quotes) and click the mirror to search. It will bring back a page and the Free Virtual Keyboard is listed first. Look to the right of it and click the Download Now button. Download and install it. Once it is install you can look in Start/Programs and right click on it and select Pin to Start Menu then right click again and select Desktop (Create Shortcut). It's a neat keyboard to have just in case your real keyboard goes bonkers. You simply click on the letter with your mouse pointer that you want. It has all the functionality of a physical keyboard. You can open a web page, place your mouse in the address line then bring up the virtual keyboard by clicking on it from your desktop or start menu and it will sit on top of whatever you were trying to do. You can move it to see the typing area as you click on a letter. It works the same way if you opened a word document. In your case anytime you need the space bar, just click on it.

Has anyone spilled any liquid onto the keyboard?
This is a common indicator as to why the keyboard gives wrong character inputs.
If this is the problem, the keyboard will need replacing

If this is not the case try pressing the FN and NUMlock keys together

Some of my keyboard buttons are typing numbers when i press a letter. what do i do?


This issue could be from viruses. I have come across a few viruses that switched around a few of the keys from letters to numbers. Have a technician or someone you know who's computer savvy do some virus removal on your laptop.

Also, make sure that the Fn key isn't activated. Sometimes haven't that activated will turn letters into numbers without you even knowing.

Hope this helps.

Not able to "log in" in my Dell laptop


Your userinit.exe file is probably missing or damaged.

Insert your Windows XP CD and restart the computer.
At the prompt 'Press any key to boot from CD', press Enter.
Windows Setup will load. This takes a few minutes.

After Setup loads, press R on your keyboard to enter the Recovery Console.
At the prompt to select 'Which Windows installation would you like to log onto', on your keyboard press the number of the installation. This will usually be 1 unless you are dual-booting.
You will get to a prompt C:\WINDOWS

You now have to locate your CD drive. The CD drive letter will depend on if/how your hard drive is partitioned and the number of CD drives. To do this:

Type D: and press Enter
If there is a valid D: drive type in dir

You are looking for a listing of files that will look something like this:
AUTORUN.INF
DOCS
DOTNETFIX
I386
etc.

If D: doesn't give this result try typing in E: followed by dir
If E: doesn't give this result try typing in F: followed by dir
etc.

When you have located the CD drive type in the following:

expand i386\userinit.ex_ C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32 /y

(Note the spaces: after expand; before C:; before /y
and that's a letter i in front of 386
and that's an underscore after ex)

Press the Enter key.
You should get a confirmation that the file was expanded.

Restart the computer by pressing the power button, remove the CD, and boot up normally.

How to make Blitzz BWA711 Router secure?


The minimum security will be WEP, so the wireless receivers on your pc should match the type of encryption. To give you WEP you select security in the routers menu and choose yourself a mixture of 6 pairs of letters and numbers in any column from 1 to 6 if it gives you 6 options. Once the letters and numbers are chosen, note down the chosen leters and numbers, and enable wep and restart router. Now go to your pc's and and go to the software you use for the recievers and select WEP. You will probably have to tell the programme whether you are on a 'Shared network key' or an 'Open network', depending on your network type (try both until one works if not sure). It will then ask for the numbers and letters you chose and wrote down, enter these and click apply and restart system. The pc's should now connect to the router. Some wireless laptops are unable to recognise WPA type security or similair so WEP is better than nothing.
