It sounds like your scroll lock key is stuck on. Press the Function key and the scroll lock key at the same time and this sound turn off the permanent scroll lock.

You need to go to the mouse settings. This is usually in Control Panel.
If using Vista, you can click the start button and in the search field, just type "mouse". That will find exactly what you're looking for.

Once you go into the Mouse Properties, click on the Tapping tab. There should be an option (checkbox) that says "Tap off when typing".

Check that box and you should be ok.

I just bought a new computer (Lenovo G580, Model Name: 20157, PC Laptops with Windows 8) on November 23, 2012. A Windows 8 problem? I have experienced my cursor jumping around randomly while typing

Straight from the user guide, just discovered it today because I have also been having this frustrating problem. Use Fn + F6 - it is a toggle switch to enable and disable the Touchpad. I have a Lenovo wireless mouse now instead.

This is an issue with your Browser. Either you can download new browser like google chorme , firefox etc or you can reset your Internet settings on the browser.

Open internet explorer and press ALT + T + O key together. You will see a new window. Now look for advance tab and click on it. Under the advance tab you should find an option called "restore advance setings", click on it and try browsing again,

My laptop keeps shutting off it is a hp pavillion dv6000

1- Scanning computer to eliminate malwares, spywares and the viruses from your laptop.
2- Repairing and cleaning Windows registry.
These two tips are found to be very helpful to fix the laptop shutdown problem. Almost all the computer users surf internet which could result in viruses attacking your system. Some of these infections are really pesky and cause the machines to shutdown randomly.
The registry errors, however, are the internal errors and can become a cause of system crashes and freezes. The registry keys shall be in good health to keep a system perfect.
When I noticed my laptop keeps shutting down everytime, I tested the Intel Software Partner, RegInOut to fix the random shutdown problem with my laptop.

When I use external storage devices like an sd card or jump drive, i constantly get a message that explorer has stopped working and shuts down. Why?

It could be caused by a corrupt sd card or jump drive due to removing it before the files have been written. If the devices are connected via USB, try a different USB slot. If explorer crashes and you can no longer see your desktop icons, press and hold the windows key and press R and release both. A run command will come up and type explorer.exe and your desktop should come back up.

Then go to My Computer or Computer and right click the device that is causing problems. Go to properties and under the Tools tab click Check Now under Error-checking. Make sure both Automatically fix file systems errors and Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors are checked, then click start. See if this helps your issue.

Hope this helps!

normally on any PC it's F2 or DEL, some others do use random F-keys. try pressing TAB on boot up to show the post messages, then it should tell you on-screen what key it uses.

Hope this helps :)

My Facebook chat window freezes up when someone responds to me

Try Using Different Browsers other then IE explorer 8 or below, they have problems working with new chat windows and stuff that it don't really recognize. For instance try firefox,opera,google chrome,safari 4

One of these would have to work with facebook, if not make sure you have enough RAM space to even run anything other then browser sometimes a slow machine can just freeze from working it self to hard.
