    Hi,

    Well I did switch the keyboard and it is still happening. The typing by itself is not that bad. The sounds have me more concerned cuz they are windows error sounds.

    Thanks though... tc

    two things to check first. 1) open up word or something similar and press on each on of your keys and make sure one is not stuck

    2) run a scan with your virus checker then let me know if those worked out ok...

Go into notepad and see if something is typing on the screen in there. If so then your keyboard is bad and will need to be replaced. If not then I would replace it anyway just to see if it still happens. Cause this +++++++++++++++++++++++ shouldn't be happening by itself regardless.

Task bar at bottom with font size on it has gone


The task bar is an important part of the Windows experience. Not only does it contain a variety of information including what time it is and how much battery life is left it's the way most Windows users open programs and documents. As such, the task bar disappearing is a stressful thing, but fixing this problem on your own is possible.

Auto-Hide Sometimes you may think your task bar has disappeared, but it's really just been set to "auto-hide." Move your mouse to the bottom of the screen and see if it pops up automatically. Then check all four sides of the screen. If the task bar was simply auto-hiding, disable this feature by right-clicking the task bar, clicking "Properties" and unchecking "Auto-hide the Taskbar." b> Reboot b> If your task bar disappears, and auto-hide isn't the culprit, the first thing you should do is reboot your computer this fixes the problems in most instances. Only one problem: because your task bar disappeared you can't access the "Start" menu in order to shut down the computer. Instead press "Alt," "Ctrl," and "Delete" at the same time and press "Restart" in the window that pops up after doing so. Your computer should restart, and in most cases your task bar should come back when it restarts. b> More Options b> If rebooting doesn't fix cause the task bar to reappear, your computer might have a problem starting explorer.exe, the program that displays the task bar and desktop icons in Windows. Press "Ctrl," "Shift," and "Esc" at the same time to bring up the System Manager. Then click "File," followed by "New Task (Run)" and type "explorer.exe" in the dialogue box that pops up. You now have your task bar and desktop icons back. Reboot to see if they stick around after rebooting. If not, repeat the process in the above paragraph. When you have you task bar back click "Start," then "Programs," then "Accessories," then "System Tools" and then "System Restore." Restore the computer to a time when everything was working fine by clicking that date on the calendar. Reboot to see if this fixes the problem. If none of this brought back your task bar permanently it may be time to run a repair install. Change My Task Bar b> In Windows operating systems, the taskbar shows your currently active windows and programs, shortcuts to your favorite programs, the time, your volume control, active programs and the "Start" button. You may want to change the taskbar so it has a different look or to customize it to suit your needs when using your computer. Windows XP users have fewer options than Windows Vista or Windows 7 users, but all operating system owners can make changes to the taskbar.

Right-click in your taskbar. Left-click on "Lock the taskbar" if it is currently checked. Otherwise, click back onto the taskbar. Click on any empty area of the taskbar. Drag the taskbar to the position (bottom, top, left or right side of the screen) you desire, and release it. Re the taskbar by moving your cursor to where the taskbar ends. Your cursor will change to a two-way arrow. Left-click and drag the taskbar until it reaches the you want. Move your cursor over the series of separator bumps between the Start button and the Quick Launch menu, and the Quick Launch menu and the active programs section of the taskbar, to alter the of the Quick Launch menu and the active programs area. Right-click the taskbar, and left-click on "Lock the taskbar" once you've completed the changes you wish to make. b> Change Taskbar Options b> Right-click on the taskbar, and left-click on "Properties." Modify the taskbar settings so that it appears the way you like. You can decide whether to show the Quick Launch menu (a series of icons for your most commonly used programs), to show thumbnails for your active programs in Windows 7 and Windows Vista and to group similar active programs, and to automatically hide the taskbar or to always have it on top of other windows. Click on the "Notification" tab in Windows 7 or Vista to modify the way the notification area to the far right appears. Stay on the taskbar tab in Windows XP. Hide inactive icons, and decide which information to show, including the clock or the volume, power and network icons in Windows 7 and Vista. Click on the "Customize" button to specify which programs or notifications should always show, never show or grow inactive with disuse. Click on the "Toolbars" tab in Windows 7 or Vista to specify which toolbars you wish to see in the taskbar. Your options will vary according to the programs you have installed on your computer but may include the Quick Launch, address bar and links toolbars. Click the "Apply" button, then "OK" once you have made the changes you desire. Hope this helps.

Sony vaio vgn cs 12gh b at start up there is a beep beep sound, pretty loud, and when the password box comes it's automatically filling wwwwwwwwww endlessly. when it's finally open there is this...


Clear the saved passwords
Sony VAIO Care, an application pre-installed on most Sony laptops, is designed to automatically check for computer updates and to assist you with troubleshooting and maintenance. The application is configured to start as soon as the computer powers on. Although Sony VAIO Care is helpful, it is not necessary for it to launch automatically, as having too many programs launch at startup can cause your computer to run slowly. You can disable VAIO Care so it does not run at startup.

Click on "Start," then click "All Programs." Click on the "Accessories" folder. Click on the "System Tools" folder and click "Task Scheduler." Type your Administrator password, if asked for one, and click "Continue." The Task Scheduler window appears. Click on "Task Scheduler Library" in the left pane. Click on "VAIO Care." Click "Disable" under the "Actions" heading on the right side of the window. Close the window. When you next start the computer, VAIO Care will not automatically run

Hope this helps.

My windows loading takes so much time


Slow Windows Machine! Sounds like not enough resources such as RAM and CPU. Check Performance in Task-Manager (CTRL-ALT-DELETE). High CPU levels causes hang ups like freezing. Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. In Startup tab, uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when only you initiate. Consider increasing RAM. Uninstall any extras like those pushy toolbars, and add-ons.

Dear Sirs I have just insalled the SimpleCenter media but I do not want the icon to automatically load onto the task bar on the right hand side,although I would like the shortcut to remain. I can delete...


Hello,

You cannot delete the icon from the task bar as it only displays the start up programs running on the computer. I have given the steps below.

Click start, than click run. In this box type "msconfig" without quotes.
You will see the list of startup programs. Uncheck the ones related to the Simple center Media.
Click Aply, Than click close, than click Restart computer now.

The program will not load automatically and you would not see the icon in the taskbar.

I am sure this will help. Please update me on the same.

Regards,
Sammy

These errors are normally the result of a failed scan, a bad installation, communication problems or software conflicts. Check or perform the following steps until the problem is corrected. Step One: Restart the computer Close all programs and restart the computer. A task that Windows requires may have stopped running or available system resources may have decreased due to tasks left running. Restarting will refresh all Windows tasks as well as increase the system resources available. Step two: Verify that the cable is connected and the all-in-one is "On" Verify that the cable is connected correctly. If the cable is connected into a USB port on a keyboard, move the cable to one of the main USB ports in the PC. Some keyboard USB ports do not provide sufficient power to supply a device such as the all-in-one. Step three: Check the application If the error occurs while trying to scan from within an application (not the HP Director), verify that the software is set to select the HP all-in-one product as the TWAIN source. It may be necessary to reinstall the application to get it to recognize the HP all-in-one product as the TWAIN source. If the application is one of those listed in the "Scan To" tool from Settings in the Director, then try scanning to it from the Director. Step four: Windows XP only: Change the Compatibility Mode settings This step applies only to the following products and only in Windows XP. For other products, continue to Step 5. Change the Compatibility Mode setting for the HP all-in-one desktop icon can correct the problem. Right-click the HP product icon, and then click Properties . Select the Compatibility tab. Change the Compatibility Mode settings to enable running the program in Windows 2000 Compatibility mode, and then click OK . Turn off the all-in-one. Restart the computer. Turn the all-in-one back on. Step five: Check for the correct entries in the Device Manager Verify that the unit was installed on a DOT4 virtual port in the Device Manager. Right-click My Computer , and then click Properties . Select the Device Manager tab (Windows 2000 select the Hardware tab , and then click Device Manager ). Check the list of installed devices for references to DOT4 as shown in Figure 1. If there are no DOT4 references, the software has not installed correctly. If these entries are missing, the software did not install properly. Do the following steps to correct the problem: Disconnect the communications cable to the all-in-one and unplug the power cable to the all-in-one. Uninstall the HP all-in-one software. Step six: Check for communication problems between the all-in-one and the computer Communication between the all-in-one and the computer may have failed. USB cable connected all-in-ones: Check for USB port communication problems. Parallel port installed all-in-one products: Check for parallel port communication problems. Step seven: Check the computer to see if it is infected with a computer virus If the all-in-one prints but will not scan correctly and does not show any symptoms of communications problems, the computer might be infected with a virus. Some viruses try to disable virus scanning software and in doing so disable scanning from the all-in-one. If the scanning software works after installing the all-in-one software until the first time the computer is restarted, or quits working after a virus is discovered on the computer, there may be a virus related problem. Step eight: Uninstall and then reinstall the all-in-one software Do the following to uninstall and then reinstall the HP all-in-one software: Follow the steps in the " Removing the HP software " section below to remove the all-in-one software. Right-click My computer and then click Explore . On the left side of the Windows Explorer screen, locate and open the Windows or WinNT folder. Locate and open the Twain32 and/or Twain_32 folders. Remove all files in these folders other than files that end with a .ds file extension. If you cannot see any file extensions, click Tools , click Folder options , select the View tab, and then remove the check from Hide file extensions for known file types . Restart the computer and then reinstall the all-in-one software. When the installation of the all-in-one software is complete, shutdown the computer. Connect the communications and power cords to the HP all-in-one and verify that it is turned on and ready. Restart the computer. Step nine: Check for software interference There may be a task running in the background that is interfering. Try pressing the keys Ctrl + Alt + Delete at the same time. This should bring up the "Close Program" window. Highlight and end task on all running tasks except for Explorer, Systray, and tasks that begin with "HPO." Press Ctrl + Alt + Delete to bring up the "Close Program" box for each and every task. The "Close Program" box will disappear when End Task is chosen. Try launching a scan after all tasks are closed. If scanning works, then there is a software conflict. Restart the computer and repeat the steps to close down the tasks. Close down one at a time or in combinations and try scanning until the cause is found. If it is unknown what this task does, do the following: Search for the file using the Find Files and Folders feature from the Start menu. Right-click the task's program icon, and then click Properties . Refer to the information on the Version tab to locate the software vendor. Call the software vendor for assistance or uninstall the product if not needed.
