    I assume your talking about the "F1" key...I would start with a small screw driver and apply into the bottom of the key and with your other hand gently pry up the key. Notice the little plastic square that is underneath, pay attention to how it is affixed to the keyboard base as you pry it off. Note - you can break these keys very easily so use caution. To put a new key on...set the little palstic square spring like into the base of the key. then gently push the key back into the socket. Good Luck

He wasn't talking about the F1 key...

There should be a thumbscrew in the back of the computer, remove it and slide off the side of the computer.

Dvd not working playstation 3

Hey Christine,
There are a couple steps you can take to troubleshoot this. You want to determine if the problem is with your DVD or with the actual cd/dvd/blue-ray drive in the PS3.
1. Make sure that the DVD works in other DVD players. It helps to try in both stand-alone DVD players and in your computer. a. Some DVDs (especially DVD-RW or rewritable DVDs) dont work on certain players. If it is a rewritable DVD it may need to be formatted by the device that created it for use. Your computer may also be able to tell if there are problems with the data on the DVD
2. Try other disks in the PS3 to make sure they work. Try Other DVDs and games or Blue-ray disks to make sure that your console's drive hasn't been damaged or is defective in any way. If other disks do work the problem is with the DVD. If no type of disk (including Blue-Ray and Game) dont work, the issue is with your drive.
a. If this is the case, you might try soft-resetting the PS3 by holding the front power button for about 10 seconds.
b. You might also want to make sure your PS# has been updated to support the latest updates by logging onto the playstation network where it will automatically prompt you if you need to update.
Let me know what you find after you complete these steps and you still have the issue.
Thanks for using FixYa! Strtpls3

IWe have replaced the Acer F1 pc power supply with a new one, still no start up power. Power supply does not start, no fan spinning?


Try using a differrent power cable, you could use the cable which goes to the monitor. If that works, then you need to just get a replacement power cable (could be US 3 PIN Spec).

If that doesn't work, then the power supply of the computer tower needs to be replaced.

AcerPower F1 desktop boots fine after about 10

More likely it's from overheating; if it would be from the power supply ithe shutdown would be more random.
But it could also be a malware infection - especially if it happens EXACTLY after the same amount of time . Check what processes are active just before shutdown .

What disks to buy? dvdr dvdrw dvd+ dvd-????

DVD stands for Digital Versatile/Video Disc, DVDR stands for DVD Recordable and DVDRW for DVD ReWriteable. If you're familiar with regular audio/music CDs or regular DVD-Video discs, then you will know what a recordable DVD looks like. A recordable DVD stores up to 2 hours of very good quality DVD-Video, including several audio tracks in formats like stereo, Dolby Digital or DTS and also advanced menu systems, subtitles and still pictures that can be played by many standalone DVD Players and most computer DVD-ROMs. If you choose to lower the video quality it is possible to store several hours video on a recordable DVD using low bitrates and low resolution with video quality more like VHS, SVHS, SVCD, CVD or VCD. It is also possible to have up to 4.37* GB ordinary data or mix DVD-Video and data on a recordable DVD that can be played by most computer DVD-ROMs.

There are three competing DVD Recording standards, DVD-R/DVD-RW and DVD+R/DVD+RW have pretty similiar features and are compatible with many standalone DVD Players and most DVD-ROMs while DVD-RAM has less DVD Player and DVD-ROM compatibility but better recording features.

DVD-R was the first DVD recording format released that was compatible with standalone DVD Players.
DVD-R is a non-rewriteable format and it is compatible with about 93% of all DVD Players and most DVD-ROMs.
DVD-RW is a rewriteable format and it is compatible with about 80% of all DVD Players and most DVD-ROMs.
DVD-R and DVD-RW supports single side 4.37 computer GB* DVDs(called DVD-5) and double sided 8.75 computer GB* DVDs(called DVD-10).
These formats are supported by DVDForum.

DVD+R is a non-rewritable format and it is compatible with about 89% of all DVD Players and most DVD-ROMs.
DVD+RW is a rewritable format and is compatible with about 79% of all DVD Players and most DVD-ROMs.
DVD+R and DVD+RW supports single side 4.37 computer GB* DVDs(called DVD-5) and double side 8.75 computer GB* DVDs(called DVD-10).
These formats are supported by the DVD+RW Alliance.

DVD+R DL or called DVD+R9 is a Dual Layer writeable DVD+R. The dual layered discs can hold 7.95 computer GB* (called DVD-9) and dual layered double sides 15.9* computer GB (called dvd-18).

DVD-R DL or called DVD-R9 is a Dual Layer writeable DVD-R. The dual layered discs can hold 7.95 computer GB* (called DVD-9) and dual layered double sides 15.9* computer GB (called dvd-18).

I got this info from

If your dvdrom supports dvdrw I would suggest buying these disks as you can re-write over them if you need too.
Most recent dvdroms support all of the above.
I hope this helps

Pinnacle Instant Photo Album Settings

If you burn it with a DVD-R player then you would need A DVD-R disk. the same thing with DVD+R. A CD-R only works with a CD-ROM, make sure you have a DVD Rewriter in your computer before you burn to a DVD. There is a DVD rewritible disk you can get to rewrite over on the same DVD each time. and you can get a DVD double read, that can write to DVD-R and DVD+R, these are better to have, you dont have to have one or the other, each will work great. Please give a fixya. Thanks, Farren
