TOSHIBA Satellite L30-10X Keyboard Set-up

I just bought a TOSHIBA Satellite L30-10X. And have 2 problems. 1. The keyboard is acting strange and I assume its got something to do to with regional settings. The '@' button appears next to the enter button, but if you press it, it shows another caracter. It does come up if you press SHIFT 2, like my HP laptop. Any help? 2. I have a USB 3G modem. It works fine if I plug it into the USB port at the back of the laptop, but not in the port at the side. It picks up the software, but will not connect to the 3G network from this port. Any help? Thanks Hardus

SOURCE: trouble connecting netgear wireless router to rca modem DCM425

First try connection the Yellow ethernet cable from the rca modem to your computer's network connection. If you get a connection this way, then your modem will work with a ethernet cable. If not, then call Comcast for help. The modem ethernet out to computer port must be connected to the wan line of the router. Then you can connect an ethernet cable from your computer network connection to one of the 4 ports of the router. For wireless connections you must set up the router and wireless adaptor with the same settings to connect. Follow the routers directions.
Good Luck

SOURCE: Hi, I want to set

1) Make sure the cable is plugged into the Internet port (or whatever the appropriate port is, since you didn't specify exactly which router).

2) At your router's configuration page, make sure DHCP (Automatic) is selected.

3) After connecting to the router, if it still does not work, open up the command window by going to the search box in the Start Menu or click Run... and type "cmd".

4) Type "ipconfig /release". Wait until this is finished.

5) Type "ipconfig /renew". Wait until this is finished.
This should have given you an IP Address.

6) Try to connect to a website.

My Vx570 terminal suddenly says Keyboard Locked everytime I run a credit transaction. Once I type in the manager password it allows me to complete the transaction. I have no idea how the keyboard became...

Just called merchant services for the same problem... The hot key to lock/unlock is 7 or 8, you enter the password, it will then give you the option to lock, select no and the keyboard will unlock.

How to format usb?

Formatting a USB Universal Storage Bus is common for those "USV's" or we commonly call it: Universal Storage of Viruses. An example of a USB virus is the problem that we can't access it. We can't see or at least recover our files, and it cause sometimes an error in formatting it. So I will teach you how to format a USB in other way than the GUI one -- the one that uses a right-clicking and Format--
OK let's start!

A. Opening a Command Prompt :
1. Click Start 2. Then click All Programs 3. Point to Accessories 4. And click Command Prompt
1. Open RUN ways of opening it:
Hold the Windows (it is in between the left CTRL and ALT ) picture on your keyboard then press R ,Type cmd ,Press OK, or Click Start then RUN, Type cmd Press OK ,Command Prompt in its default location .B. Type the location of the USB. It is commonly D:, E:,G:, or H:, depend on the number of disk inserted. C. Press Enter on your keyboard. It will go to the location typed. D. Type Format location of the USB: then press Enter on your keyboard.E. Then the format process will begin . I didn't press enter thought my USB have has no problem with it ;D
F. The command prompt will say that the format is done. And that's it! You're done! Congratulations!

Window7 crache connecting usb fax modem

I expect it is a problem with your USB Driver, Get an updated driver for your USB slots. (either from motherboard manufacturer or USB manufacturer if it is a USB "card")
Even default or old drivers might work Try a few different USB drivers - a new one, the reccomended one, the original one...
(good idea is to use a ps/2 mouse and keyboard since your usb will be going on and off while you're working, it can be hard to click YES when you're keyboard AND mouse aren't working ;-)
if it still dont work...
Can you set any of your USB slots to work in USB 1.0 instead of 2.0, there could be an option in bios, maybe it will run the "OLD" modem in an OLD mode?

well this question has 2 answers:
1) if you want to find out what is the ip that in on your PC if you are connected to a one of these (cable modem, DSL modem or router) then this is what you call a "local ip, or private IP" to check it you do this: you click Start/ run/ and you type CMD and press ENTER on the keyboard. then in the black window you type "ipconfig" (without the quotes) and you press ENTER again. here it should say, ip address (most likely it is going to start like , where xxx could be any set of numbers)

2) if you are talking about the IP address that your modem (cable or DSL) is pulling , that means that is your "public IP" and to find it out, (the wasiest way) you can go to a site like "" and your public ip will be at the top of the page.

Note: in case of vista, to get the black window you click "start/(start search) and type CMD and enter"
the rest is the same.
