Question about Computers & Internet
I am having trouble getting past the Installation part of the unit. The switch at the back only turns it on and off, I can't seem to toggle up or down or press it to select 'OK'. Is there any other way to get past this?

Hi there Susie
Assuming your running XP....
Go to Start
go to control panel
there should be two screens visible
click on screen 2 and then IDENTIFY
the video card should then put a Number 1 or 2 on the screen if its connected and turned on,
If there is only one screen visible in the display SETTINGS
then you will have to uninstall the device and reinstall it.
How to Uninstall....
Go to start
Right click on My Compter,
Right click on Display adapters
Reboot to save settings when done and restart
On start up the Operating System should auto recognise the device and reinstall it,
It will tell you when its installed and ready for use ,
give you a device install failure message
Once this is done the device should be up and laughing again.
As far as how did it happen???
Did you do any device updates or software installs lately?
Sometimes default settings of different softwares conflict with each other and the only way to sort them out is turn them off and start again.
I hope this helps,If you need any more help , please just ask

Assuming you don't have a virus, the laptop's internal (CMOS) battery may be bad. Apart from keeping the time current, it holds onto your machines bootlog. If the machine starts up in Safe Mode, it would likely be the CMOS battery that's bad.

SOURCE: Water damaged Laptop
Attaching an external keyboard does not help because the keyboard controller is damaged.
I recommend you put your money towards a new laptop as the cost of repair maybe too expensive or beyond repair. Most computer repair shop charge for a quote and may drop this charge if you go ahead with the repair.
If the hard disk is OK then I suggest you remove it from the laptop and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an external USB hard drive for backups and data transfer etc.
