    No, try a different web-browser such as FireFox or Google Chrome.

This is probably not a issue related with FixYa, but with your browser. Try to use another browser and make sure they are upgraded to their latest version.

Try a different web browser, or try updating your current browser.

The best thing to do is downloading firefox, that works for sure.

IP address problem

type "cmd" in the run box (if xp vista is different) this will open the command prompt window. type ipconfig /release make sure you hit the space bar between the g and / or it wont release your old ip. now it should come up in the window with 2 sets of 3 zeroes. now type ipconfig /renew again the space between the g and / you should have a new ip if windows xp or 2000. if Vista you will have to have administrator privilage and not just as the admin user either. the instruction is the same except after you type cmd in the search box the window opens but do not type anything in there. X out of the command box and wait a cpl seconds. click your start button again and see if it dropped the short cut in your primary run box if not get out and click start again until u see the CMD in the start menu window. When u see it RIGHT click that short cut and click "run as administator" it will open the command window up again then follow the same instruction as with XP.

My keyboard wont type anything, the mouse works, but when i try to type it wont do anything, the buttons do work because when i open word to try to type if i click f the file drops down and when i click v...

Somehow the left ALT key is stuck in a pressed position. Usually when you press left ALT and the letter underlined in a menu, it deploys that menu. In the File menu, the F is underlined and in the View menu it is the V that is underlined, hence the behavior.

Hope it helps.

Sandisk card reader wont detect my sandisk card.

This problem arises because your USB is not recognized by your computer. This issue can be solved by following the steps given below.

  1. Use the Device Manager to scan for new and recently installed hardware. From the start menu, select the 'Run' option. In the pop up box, type in Devmgmt.msc and then click 'Ok'. From the 'Action' Mmnu, click 'scan for hardware changes'. This will make Windows recognize any new devices that are installed. Now, close all device managers and control panels. Now see if your computer will read the USB device.
If the above method doesnt work, then try the following,

Disable power management of the USB hub. To disable the power management,

1.Click Start, and then click Run
2.Type devmgmt.msc in the Open box, and then click OK.
3.Expand the Universal Serial Bus controllers' node, and then follow these steps for each USB Root Hub that is listed:
4.Right-click the USB Root Hub and then click Properties.
5. Click the Power Management tab.
6. Click to clear the Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power check box, and then click OK.

PS: If you perform the following procedure on a laptop computer, you may reduce the battery life.

Wont find dvd drive

I've seen this problem a lot lately.

You can try this for starters:

There are no drivers for CD or DVD drives as they are not made or needed as XP has the required genetic drivers built in.

Try this:-

WARNING: If you use Registry Editor incorrectly, you may cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that you can solve problems that result from using Registry Editor incorrectly. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.

1. Click Start, and then click Run.

2. In the Open box, type regedit, and then click OK.

3. Locate the following registry subkey:

4. On the File menu, click Export.

5. In the File name box, type savedkey, and then click Save.

6. Click the REG_MULTI_SZ data type UpperFilters, and then click Delete on the Edit menu. When you are prompted to confirm the deletion, click Yes. NOTE: If this data type is missing, continue to the next method.

7. Click the REG_MULTI_SZ data type LowerFilters, and then click Delete on the Edit menu. When you are prompted to confirm the deletion, click Yes.

8. Quit the Registry Editor, and then restart the computer.

Let me know if that works, otherwise I'll suggest something else.
