This is caused by the touchpad zoom feature; when it is enabled, brushing the touchpad registers a pressing of the ctrl key. Disable touchpad zoom and this behavior should stop occurring.

Just wanted to clairfy for anyone that comes across that post that it is very likely that the problem is solution one. It seems as though it is affecting a lot of Inspirion 1545 owners. To disable the touch to zoom you go to Control panel/hardware and sound/mouse/Dell touch pad/click on the picture of the track pad/scrolling settings/click the check box under Scroll to zoom to disable it.

It sounds like your CTRL key is stuck, given that CTRL + T is new tab, and CTRL+ "Plus" or "Minus" is zooming.

Try some canned air, you can also try activating your CTRL key multiple times, which may free up and debris that is causing this.

It is however possible that your keyboard may need to be reconnected, or replaced. Try the first option and let us know.

How do I find my ID on Facebook?


Hi, do you really mean your ID (wich is a sequence of 15 digits), or
your user name (which looks like "firstname.lastname.oneDigit"?



To find your FaceBook ID, you first need to know your user name which
looks like "firstname.lastname.digit". Just in case, your user name is
the part of your FaceBook email on the left of the @
sign. If you don\'t know it, it can be found on your profile page
(click on your profile picture to access your profile page). From your
profile page, click on the "About" tab and look on the
right for your FaceBook email.



Now, to get your ID, open a new browser window and type this in the
adress bar : http://graph.facebook.com/FaceBookUserName
and hit Enter. A text file will display in the browser window where
you will see your ID on the first
line.



Good luck !

Cannot open att yahoo


hi this is very simple
step 1.check whether the user id and password that u have typed is correct and make sure that CAPS LOCK is not on when u are typing ur user id and password but if ur user id and password is in CAPS LOCK then make sure that ur CAPS LOCK is on.
step 2.if u have checked this and nothing works simply click on forgot password and ask them to send a new password to another email address for e.x.gmail.com and after receiving the new password simply copy and paste the password in ur yahoo password tab and login this will work for sure and after loging in u can reset ur old password by clicking on the settings tab and paste the current password u received and type ur old password in the new password tab and retype it again and save ur profile
NOTE:possible reasons may be because of the server speed sometimes due to congestion of the networks ur server speed becomes slow and u may not able to log in to ur account or may be ur account may be lapsed for u may have not used it for months or year but its only conditional

I set a new password on my dell inspiron 1545 just today, and now when i log in to my computer it doesnt work. How can i fix this?


If you have forgotten your BIOS or Hard Drive Password for this model, there is a master code that you can obtain from Dell Support. Simply call, Email, or use Online Chat from http://support.dell.com and give them your Service Tag, and they can help you out from there. If it is a Windows profile password you have forgotton, try accessing the Administrator account from Safe Mode (Press F8 at startup), and remove the password for the user account from Control Panel, User Accounts.
