I've had similar problems on a couple dells i've worked on - what solved the problem for them was flashing the bios with the version found on the manufacturer website, so i would give that a shot

    "flashing" your bios is basically performing an update for it. You can do this by looking on the driver download section of your manufacturer's web site. Once you find your particular computer look for a "BIOS" tab and run the version they have posted on the web site. Usually you don't have to do anything after downloading/running it, your computer will go through an updating process and restart, but after that you're done - if of course that is the problem.

I am unable to locate the ESC key Could you please help. New device


What kind of device is it? A normal keyboard has the ESC key in top left corner.
If you are using a Windows device run the "On-screen Keyboard" and click the ESC key with your mouse - better than nothing. (Find the on-screen keyboard in the Start Menu under Accessories - Ease of Use)

Cant take the mute off


If you look at one of your keys, there should be a key with blue letters "fn". This is the function key. Hold this key down and press the "esc" key. There should be a pic of some speakers under the word esc. This should toggle the sound. Here is the link to the user guide for reference.

Sound wont go on. muted but i have no way of unchecking the mute box


Go to the top of your keyboard. There is a button with a black sideways bell shape icon on it ( a speaker) (the f3 key)...probably four in from the left starting with esc. Toggle that on. It may be on the mute setting now. It should have waves coming out of it when it is unmuted. To the right of that button (two buttons to the right) is the increase volume control button, the (f5) key. Make sure the volume is up! If it is down all the way you will hear nothing and it will be also muted.
I am not sure why if you go into System Preferences (under the Apple icon) and scroll down to Sound and Output, the mute box cannot be unchecked. Perhaps using the function keys to unmute and increase volume on the top of the keyboard will help.

How to exit a program that is responding


Do you mean NOT responding?
If so, hold down the command key (that's the one right next to the space bar), then hold down the ALT key (that's the key next to the command key) and while you are holding them down press the ESC key (top left hand corner of the keyboard).
A window will open up showing all the running programs. Normally the problem program will be high-lighted and will have (not responding) tagged onto the end of its name. At the bottom of the window is a button marked "Force Quit".
Alternatively you can mouse over the program's icon in the dock, click on it and hold the click for a couple of seconds. A menu will pop up with "Force Quit" in it. That's it.
