Simpletech 160 Portable doesn't show up

The harddrive worked fine on my laptop. On the desktop, it at first looked for hardware. The harddrive never showed up. I tried different usb ports. It doesn't show up in Computer Management.

Escape key is not responding


try blowing out all of the dust from your keyboard using a fine air blower from an air compressor making VERY sure there is no MOISTURE in the lines.
dust causes static which causes lots of problems with a computer and its parts
or if this does not fix the problem

you might have uninstall the keyboard restart your computer then reinstall the keyboard
Click start control panel keyboard hardware make sure you have the right keyboard selected

or you might have uninstall the keyboard then restart your computer then reinstall it and its drivers
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to keyboard you might see a yellow question /exclamation mark ? ! or a red X right click update driver
if your computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it

rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours

Lenove ku-0989 fn key


  1. Numerous folks indicate that Windows doesn't register the Fn key as a keypress but using a tool that gives the ASCII value of a keypress I see the Fn key returning FF (perhaps FF in this case means 'not registered'). I also see that keys like Ctrl register with one ASCII code when pressed alone and another when pressed in combo with another key. Fn will only register when pressed alone, so Windows definitely isn't seeing the combo. This took a solution like AutoHotKey off the table.

  2. I ran KeyTweak (which shows you the hardware scan codes of a keypress and the Fn key registerd as 57443). Using this program I remapped Fn to the Ctrl key; this worked perfectly. However, I suspect that because of the issue in #1, the combo of, for example, Fn + C did not execute a copy.

On laptops both the laptop LCD screen and the external video port can be toggled to show laptop LCD, external vodeo and bothe laptop LCD and external video.
You need to press and hold down the Fn key and one of the function keys that has the monitor symbol, repeated pressing this function key will toggle the video outputs.
I cannot advise you which function key works with your laptop as they vary between different laptop manufacturers.

Sustain pedal doesn't work any more - maybe it isn't the fault of the pedal? I don't want to order a new one if the problem is in the keyboard. I'm sorry, I just lent it to summer guests...


take it into a music store and try a pedal there in store. If it works, buy the new pedal and charge the guests. If it does not work, you know it's th TS input on the keyboard

My dell mouse wm311 quit working. i got a new dell inspiron 15 laptop Saturday and the new mouse worked. the next day it wouldn't work. the batteries test fine. it is turned on but it won't work.


Your mouse has probably lost its pairing. There should be a button that puts the mouse into answer mode so that when the computer looks for it, the mouse will be found and paired. All you should have to do is get the computer up and running, then turn on the mouse and push the button that makes it answer. (Should be a power switch and then another push button switch that allows the mouse to respond to search queries from the computer.) Then after a few seconds try moving the mouse to determine if it was found. If not found, then try going to devices to make sure it is searching. The mouse should show up on the list of devices.

I have the Microsoft 5000 Bluetooth mouse and it auto pairs. But if I turn it off, it will lose pairing. Sometimes I forget that I didn't turn it off and it is not clear which position of that tiny power switch is the ON, but when I push on the answer button, a light turns on to let me know that power is on. If the mouse is found or if it can't pair, the light goes off so the only way to tell that it is paired is to see it move the mouse pointer. So far it works quite well.

HP Wireless optical mouse stopped working


You will need to "pair" it with the receiver.  Look on the receiver and you will find a button.  press it then press the button on the mouse.
Then wiggle the mouse around.  You should see the pointer move.
