Question about Toshiba Tecra A4 Notebook

1 Answer

How do you turn the tones on and off for the keyboard numbers?

When dialing phone numbers, on Skype for instance, and I'm asked to add extension numbers, the number keys on my Toshiba Satellite (A45-S150) will not create dial tones. I've had the capability in the past, but seem to have lost it. Thanks!

I have a netzero dialup and when i try to establish a connection i get "dialing, redialing in 5 seconds, dialing..., unable to establish a connection" How do i establish a connection?


If you turn your sound up on the computer, do you hear a dial tone? Does it then begin dialing? If not you may have a bad modem. Try dialing the ISP's number with your phone, it should dial in and you should hear various beeps and so on, if not the ISP is down.

Shortcuts have locked up on my pc


Conflicting Extensions


Add-ons, also called plug-ins or extensions, are mini-applications that attach themselves to independent software and add extra capabilities to the program.


Extensions can change a browser's interface, alter the behavior of existing operations, add new functions or install in-browser support for programs like Shockwave Flash or Adobe Reader.


Because these extensions make changes to the overall operation of a browser, they can also affect the shortcut keys.


Most browsers offer an option to run the application with add-ons disabled; if the shortcut keys work when extensions are turned off, one of the add-ons is at fault.


Key Reassignments


Programs like MapKeyboard, SharpKeys and KeyTweak can reassign the functions of each key on the laptop keyboard.


If the computer is running a non standard keyboard layout, certain keys might not behave or respond normally.


For example, if the "Ctrl" key has been disabled or is set to work like "Shift," shortcut keys won't work as expected because the keyboard is no longer using its default mapping.


If the keyboard layout has been changed in the Dell laptop, the registry will contain a Scancode Map entry in

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout or the language bar will show a keyboard language different from the default ("English (United States)," or "EN," for Dell laptops purchased in the U.S.).

Virus Infection


Malicious software can affect the function of peripheral components like the keyboard and mouse.


If the keyboard is exhibiting strange behavior for example, if certain keys do not respond or if keys output unexpected letters a virus is most likely the cause.


Running an anti malware software from within Safe Mode accessed by pressing "F8" on the Dell logo screen should remove any viruses interfering with keyboard response.


Browser Software


Upgrading or downgrading a browser on the PC can affect the Internet shortcut keys associated with that program, especially if the version removes a function that was once associated with a particular keyboard combination.


Alternatively, if you've switched to another browser, you might find that certain shortcuts that worked in the previous browser don't work in the new one.


For example, while "Shift-F10" opens a context menu in Internet Explorer, the same keyboard combination does nothing in Mozilla Firefox.


Hope this helps.

I have just downloaded Skype and want to know how to make a call with it?


Computer to computer calls are made by adding the contacts from your email lists or by adding an email name and asking Skype to locate them. If the user has Skype, you can call their PC. The other user must have Skype.
You can ask Skype to search your address book for Skype users to make this process go smoother.

If you are trying to make a PC to telephone call, you have to add money to your account. This is called buying credit. Land calls are 2.1 cents per minute. PC to PC calls are free.
You can dial any number using your keypad.

You must have a microphone and speakers to make a call to a land phone or other PC.
If you have a camera on your PC, you can make video calls from PC to PC. If the other person has a camera, you can see each other.
The button that says make calls is clicked and you follow the instructions on the screen. The red button is to hang up the call.

Cannot connect to isp using modem (dialup) get error code 680. using vista home premium.


error code 680 means there is no dial tone.

manually attach a phone to the phone jack you are connecting to and check if there is a dial tone. if there is no dial tone on that jack try a diff phone jack. if still fails call your telco.

if there is dial tone to other jacks it means the previous jack is faulty or damage.

Computer modem and dial tone


Hello Mikenrgrsvll

This problem can be due to the software not handling a certain dial tone rather than a specific hardware fault. Around the world there is a variance in the signal quality of the dial tone which causes a report of no dial tone detection. Disable the dial tone detection to prevent the system from trying to detect a dial tone.
Disabling dial tone detection for modems:
Windows XP
  1. Click Start
  2. Select Control Panel
  3. Click Switch to Classic View to change the control panel view
  4. Click Phone and Modem Options
  5. Select the Modem Tab
  6. Select the installed modem (Example: Lucent Technologies Soft Modem AMR)
  7. Click the Properties button
  8. Select the Modem tab in the Properties window
  9. Click Wait for dial tone before dialing to remove the check from the checkbox
  10. Select the Advanced tab
  11. Add X3 to the Extra initialization commands field in the Extra Settings box
  12. Click OK twice
  13. Select Switch to Category View to change back the control panel view
  14. Close Control Panel
if this does not work trying re-installing modem drivers.

hope this helps, have a good day.

Modem problem


Disconnect the phone line from the modem and connect a normal phone to this phone line. Lift the handset and check it you have a dial tone and see if you can dial out.
If you don't get a dial tone then there is a fault with the phone line and it needs to be repaired before you can use your modem.

Skype for linux


How did you install it? Often times Linux installers won't add icons to your desktop or menu's. Sometimes you just have to open the command line and type the command to start the program. For instance, open a command prompt, and try typing:

skype

And see what happens.

hmm..well..this maybe as simple as the phone number setting in your dial up application..do you have call waiting or voicemail on that line? You may need to set the phone dialer to compensate for that issue.
