Machine keeps napping I guess is a good way to say it
My computer keeps napping and keyboard turns completly off. It is a emachines keyboard. I have never noticed before but in the upper right corner where it says emachines there are three smybols. The first one is Number Lock and when you turn it on there is a light that comes on. The second symbol is Caps On when you have it on it also has a light that comes on. The third symbol is what? Somehow I accidentally turned the light on and have been trying to turn off but my computer just goes to sleep and so does the keyboard. Can you help please? Janet

Turn the computer off and unplug it. If it is a laptop also remove the battery. Let the computer sit for at least two minutes then reinstalll the battery, plug it in, and turn it back on. Your problem should be fixed. good luck.

I'm going to guess pwr supply 12 volts side. The 5 volts side lights up keyboard and mouse; both get replaced when they fix (replace) the power supply.
The hard drive and dvd player us the 12volts side.
Check 12 volt supply side if low disconnect hard drive check voltage again,, if 12 volts hard drive bad,,, if low disconnect dvd,,, if 12volts connect hard drive,,,if 12 volts dvd bad. of course this scenerio can go the opposite way. Do you know how to use a multimeter? Black box maintence is exciting.
need to what? I'm not sure what the rest of the question is but it sounds like you need to keep your computer from going to sleep mode. You can do this by clicking on your start menu then going to control panel then inside power options you can turn sleep mode off. There really is no real reason for a home pc to go into sleep mode.
First, try connecting another keyboard using the same type of connection as your keyboard. (PS2, or USB). If that one works in the machine; then it's more then likely that there is a problem with your keyboard.
If it doesn't work, it may be a problem with the system itself or possibly a software problem. To test a keyboard is very simple and this test is integrated in most of the BIOS startup systems today. Simply press more than 7 keys right when you turn your power on to the system. If it beeps after a few seconds of holding or brings up a keyboard error, then the keyboard is communicating with the system. If there's a keyboard error that actually states that there is no keyboard present; then there is a problem.
I hope this helps you narrow it down. If it's not the keyboard itself, and you can't get any keyboards to work, I'd have that shop take another look at what they did.
Your OS is messed up. You will have to reinstall your OS and drivers. If you have the CD's that came with your system you should have no problem, just follow on screen instructions, if not, you will have to install the OS and get the driver for your network card so you can go online and download the rest of the drivers for your e-machine, sound, video, usb and chipset drivers. Good Luck.
JUST HOLD THE NAP BUTTON UNTIL IT NO LONGER IS BLINKING NAP, dont return it, its very good at waking you up in the morning, and is basically a good alarm clock, it just has a different way of turning nap off.
