Re: automatically ctrl key is pressed

First make sure that the keyboard is ok, you can press the ctrl key and compare with the feeling when press other keys, to see if there is different, may be some thing stuck there, if there is no problem, check the driver is installed correct, you can get the keyboard type from the check list of the computer or contact with the supplyer, and install a correct driver

My screen turns sideways and when i download a game it turns sideways automatically

An upside down image - this is caused by unintentionalpressing Ctrl-Alt plus the down arrow key. Restore by pressing Ctrl-Alt plus the up arrow key. ALSO To change the display from portrait to landscape Press Ctrl-Alt plus a left or right arrow key. Some computers do not have this function.

Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart error

Is it a black screen right when you boot your computer? If so this could be a fatal disk error and the harddrive has crashed.

There is no easy fix other than to replace the harddrive.
