Hello,

Chances are your quick launch buttons are too sensitive, or your hitting them by accident.

Either way, the simplest solution is to disable them, I have done this for many of my clients. Right-Click on your Computer icon in your start menu. Click continue if a security menu pops up.

When it opens click Device manger on the left then expand the Human Interface Devices section on the right by clicking the + sign next to it.

You should have a screen that looks like this now:

While I type on my HO G50 laptop the computer will - 0bc367e.jpg
Right-Click the HP Quicklaunch Buttons and select Disable, by left clicking.

Close the Management Window and you should find the problem fixed. If you ever need to re-activate the buttons just repeat the process but select Enable on the last step.

Hope this Helps FixYa,

Chris

Which buttons to press on my acer laptop to start a golf dvd disc is in slot


You will need a program to run DVD's on your computer.
If you have Windows the easiest choice would be Windows Media Player
Navigate to Control Panel and type in "Default" run down the list and select "Windows Media Player"
When I insert a DVD in my Acer I automatically get a menu come up
(Windows 10) giving me options of what I want to do with the DVD including "Play" .......Duh !!
If you need more help give some information on your OS
Earlier OS I used to have to go to Computer and the DVD drive should be visible - right click on it and see if "Autoplay " comes up

I have a Canon Power Shot A480. When I put the memory card in the computer nothing happens.


Do you have a program such as Canon Zoom Browser?
Is your computer PC or Mac? If it is a PC you should have Windows
Autoplay which starts automatically whenever you insert a memory card/thumb drive/CD/DVD. It can become disabled especially with virus infections. To check this click Start and type Autoplay in the search window.In Windows 7 this should offer you a range of options including different media types. Earlier versions of Windows will offer different options.
