Does the mouse work well? When you open a file, does that take a long time, too? Is it happening all the time?

I'm not sure it will help solve your problem, but it's possible you are experiencing a "typematic" feature. To save typing, there is an execellent explanation at:

How do I get rid of osd lockout


Fix One:

Plug in the monitor and power it up. Hold down the Power button until you get a message saying "OSD Unlocked". If the problem persists after OSD is unlocked then unplug the monitor from the wall, wait 20 seconds and try again.
Fix Two:

Turn on the monitor and hold down the Menu button for 10-20 seconds. This should unlock the OSD.
Fix Three:

Turn off the monitor, press down the Menu button and then turn on the monitor. Wait 10-20 seconds. This should unlock the OSD.
Fix Four:

The Menu button may be stuck in a pressed in position. To get it "unstuck" you'll usually need to open up the monitor. This could be tricky unless you know what you're doing. Unfortunately there are too many models of monitor for me to provide detailed instructions. If you have warranty this is where you want to contact the manufacturer.

Can you tell me what keystrokes to use to get into the bios of the Pelham Sloane PS1500?


ill tell you my secret that works on ALL computer systems!!!!!! just don't tell anyone where you got it from.....lol anyways, you ready?
  1. power on the system
  2. run your finger down the function keys starting with esc.....ex (esc - F12) until the systems beeps (do it kinna like cascading on a piano)
you may here some beeping but that just means that the system isnt inputing anymore of the keystrokes, your fine......this will pull up the bios or boot window on any system and if you arent already in the bios then it will tell u which key you should use!!! :D
HA, who'd a thunk it? :D
pretty simple and will allow you to find the bios on ANY system ANY time!!!!
GOOD LUCK AND PLS RATE THIS POST!!!!!! :D

Shift key locked keyboard out, can't use keys


I found that if you hold down both left and right shift key at the same time (did this for several seconds), it it will solve the problem. Hopefully that fixed the issue. Also, go to control panel, click on accessibility options..in the keyboard tab, click on the settings buttons for sticky keys, filter keys and toggle keys and deselect the option to use shortcut..hopefully this will help you and other people that have had this problem.

Typing delay


I would suspect that you maybe have spyware and malware issue's. you need to get that process list down to an average of 35-40.

spybot is an excellent application to help in a situation like this. Search for it on google.

I found the fix a year ago but now cant remember how to fix this. My Medion desk top wont recognize the photo card drives. It was something like turn off CPU, turn off switch in back, hold down front...


Problem fixed. Shut down the CPU, then flip the switch on the back tothe off position. While in the off position, push in on the power button on the front as if you wanted to start it up. Leave it pushed in for several seconds. Then release, turn back switch back to on, and THEN fire up the CPU. Icons for card reader should be restored.

Keyboard doesn't work properly


Turn on your computer, go to the control panel, if you are using Windows XP, click on switch to classic control panel" and then go to Accessibility Options. There is a keyboard tab that the settings can be changed to help people with disabilities operate their keyboards better but if you hold down certian keys for more than a few seconds, Windows XP will activate these settings. Sounds like your son accidently turned on "FilterKeys" There is a check box on the Keyboard tab of Accessibility Options that turns off FilterKeys. If "Use FilterKeys" is checked, uncheck that box and then click "OK" and see if that helps.

Good Luck!

Your finger is pressing the 'S' key. Lift your finger off the key after each keystroke, to prevent repeated letters.
