Wireless locks up my keyboard

When I use the factory wireless on my Emachines W4620 the keyboard locks up and I have to reboot.

    this started several months ago, no new hardware or software added, I did re install the driver for the wireless and have even re installed all operating system software, I have no problem using an external card and I thought the keyboard itself was the problem and have replaced it. basically anytime I try to connect with the internal wireless card I have to completely reboot as the computer just hangs....

    When did this problem start happening? Did you install new software or upgrade any device drivers?

Unlock keyboard

Well you may have a bigger problem than a locked keyboard. If you tried to shut down all your programs and reboot, and if you could reboot as someone else to see if it it a locked keyboard. By rebooting the keyboard should auto unlock however if your using a wireless keyboard (check your batteries), and finally on this machine there is a problem with using USB keyboards, try to unplug the USB keyboard then waiting 10 seconds, then plug it into a different USB port, this will reset the keyboard in some cases, but it may be necessary for you to reload the keyboard driver. Okay you say how do you do that without the keyboard? Well if your mouse is working go to START>PROGRAMS>ACCESSORIES>ACCESSIBILITY>ON-SCREEN KEYBOARD and use your mouse to reload the USB keyboard driver and see if that fixes your problem.
Good luck!

How to turn w4620 wifi on

You should ensure that you installed all drivers needed. Make sure that in Device Manager ( Right click on My Computer, choose Properties, Hardware Tab and then click Device Manager) there are no exclamation marks in yellow triangle. If there are you need to download and install appropriate LAN drivers for your model. Click on this link to go to download page.
If everything is in order you must press Fn key + F2 to turn on/off wireless adapter. Go to Settings->Network Connections-> select your wireless adapter, right click on it and select View Available wireless Networks, like on the picture below.

I assume that you use Windows XP and sceenshots are from this Operating System.

My Emachine laptop model W4620 puts itself into standby before it even loads the sign on screen; it won't even let me strike F2 to enter the BIOS or F10 for setup. I pulled the battery out for a minute...

into the bios and set you all, clock, hdd, DVD and other set when i can then save and exit, if after use and close the unit and is again able to use some time lapsed and this is the same still only one message means that your damaged battery and need to replace its battery, good luck and hopefully I helped you
