There are so many buttons on the Microsoft Laser Desktop 4000 keyboard and I would like to loearn how to use all of them without wasting a lot of time. Why aren't there any instructions and how do I learn...


On the left side of the keyboard you'll find a few function keys. From bottom to top we have the Web/Home, which simply opens up your primary web browser as you'd expect. Gadgets is a Vista exclusive, but I'm confused as to it's actual usefulness. If the windows Sidebar is closed, pushing this button will open it. Mail and Call both open up Windows specific applications, Windows Mail and Windows Messenger. Lastly we have the My Documents button which is self explanatory. The zoom feature is one of the best on this keyboard in my opinion. It explains itself really, but you have the ability to slide it up or down to zoom in and out on a webpage or photo. Many keyboards instead just have buttons for accomplishing this, but a slider makes it feel more natural.

Up top we have the usual slew of media shortcuts including video or music playback buttons. The "My Favorites" keys are shortcuts to anything you want, whether it be a certain file, application or game. The little Star button below these brings up the dialog to set up these keys, which I will touch on shortly.

There are three buttons above the numpad, and though difficult to read in a photograph, they are Calculator, Log Off and Sleep. I am a personal fan of the Calculator shortcut on media keyboards as I reference it often.

Hi- I've just inserted a CD into my MacBook Pro


CD Stuck in Device
First try the normal methods to remove the disc. Drag its icon to the Trash can in the Dock or select 'Eject' from the File menu. If you are running a virtual machine, e.g. VMFusion, ensure that the CD is disconnected from the virtual machine. This will sometimes allow the CD to now show up in Mac OS X. Shut down the computer and start up whilst holding down the mouse button. This may take some time, but keep your finger on the mouse button right up until the disc comes out or the log-in screen has appeared. If you have Toast Titanium installed on your computer, choose EJECT DISC from the menubar. Sometimes you can successfully use the eject disc button in iTunes even if the disc is not visible to the Finder Open Disk Utility and choose the disc you wish to eject in the left-hand pane, then click on the Eject button. Some Macintoshes have a paperclip hole that you can insert a straightened paperclip into, manually triggering the eject mechanism. Open Terminal and type "drutil tray eject" to eject the disc/tray, and "drutil tray close" to close the tray. Restart the computer while holding down Command-Option-O-F, to enter the Open Firmware prompt. Type "eject cd" without the quotes, and press return. The disk ought to eject. To start into OS X, type "mac-boot" without the quotes. Press return, and the computer will continue with the startup. (This will not work on an Intel Mac. There is no Open Firmware on Intel Macs. ) If your computer has an eject button on the keyboard, restart the computer holding down the Option key. When the startup disk selection screen appears, let go of the option key and press the keyboard's eject button.

Stuck dvd tray


There are many ways to eject a DVD. Try this.

Shut down the computer (complete power off, not restart)
Hold down the left button (Apple mouse?)
Push the power button
Keep holding the mouse button down until it either ejects or the grey pinwheel appears. (It's not an instant process)

Usually, eject/F12 will open the drive up. If that does not work try.
Open terminal and use the command "drutil tray eject"

You can also try command-option O + F and type"eject cd"
If none of this works your drive may be bad or the power cord is loose. You will need to open it up or seek professional service.

Won't start up....emergency eject????


Hi there,

As soon as you turn on your G5, hold down the mouse button. Keep holding it down until the disc ejects. Make sure you hold down the mouse button (right side or middle) as soon as you turn the computer on.

DVD reader


Hi I'm sorry you are having trouble,
OK, when was the last time your CD/DVD trey opened properly when instructed by pressing the eject button on your keyboard ?
This (and all other apple computers now) machine does not have a button other than the keyboard eject button to eject or open the trey. The eject button is usually the last key at the top right hand of the keyboard. If you are not using an Apple Keyboard, it does not always work. And, sometimes, that key no longer sends it's request to the Mac... SO,
Have you tried another keyboard ?
Is there a Disk in the reader? Sometimes the disk itself confuses the reader and paralyses it and restarting won't help it even freezes the system....
That is why there is another way to get the CD drive to open or eject a disk that won't come out:
Restart your mac or from an off position, turn on the Mac and VERY QUICKLY press the mouse button ( If you have a mighty mouse, be sure to click the left side of the mouse ) and hold that mouse button down until the disk ejects, depending on how much ram you have, it could take 10 seconds to 70 seconds, be patient...
If the Mac boots without ejecting the disk, then either your mouse or keyboard are not connected directly to the mac, this does not work well through a USB Hub, or the mouse or Keyboard are defective.
Keep trying it with other keyboards or mice until you get that drawer opened.
