I have a Toshiba Satellite A215-S7462 and the keyboard is acting weird. when I type and press H key it automatically goes in front of the last alphabet i type and when I press down up and side arrow keys...


This is caused by a short in the keyboard. Either something was spilled into the keyboard, or it was hit by a hard object.
Search EBay! for a replacement keyboard. Most of the time you can find them for $35-$50 and have a professional install it for you.

Turn on wireless


To turn the wireless on on your laptop:

1. Click on Start. Type Mobility in the Search box. Hit the enter key.

2. In the Search results under Programs you will see Windows Mobility Center. Click on it to open it.

3. You will see a button under "Turn Wireless On"

4. Click on it to enable your wireless.

Another way using a keyboard shortcut: Press the fn and F2 keys at the same time.

I hope this helps you-Thanks for using Fix Ya.

Hello, I try to print screen but it seem not working.. My laptop is HP pavilion dv4 ans using windows 7. Nomen


When you hit the "PrtScn" key, your desktop or whatever you see on the screen will "Copy" that image into memory. To actually see this image open Paint (or an other photoeditor program) and hit "Ctrl+V" (Paste). Now you can see the image, save it, print it or whatever.

Will not load to login window


if you know that it has a recovery partition on the hdd try to reinstall the windows cause it sounds to me like a damaged windows.. to do that try to press F11 on start and see if it has a recovery partition to reinstall from ...if not try with a bootable windows disk ...
If the boot order is not set to boot from cd first and its is not asking to press any key to boot from cd ..than you should insert the disk and choose from pressing at start F12 ( or F10 ) the boot device you need..and continue the installing from the disk by pressing any key to boot from cd ..

In the other matter it seams that someone (probably the last guy that installed it ) messed around and inserted a Bios password to make sure you will call him again the next time it breaks..This matter is only avoidable by opening it and removing the Bios battery to default the Bios settings ..

Exact same problem.


Same problem..
I got a Windows update and the keyboard started acting weird.
Do a system restore to an earlier date before the mishap.
Then update Windows again.. It should fix the problem..

Keyboard keys L/G/R acting weird


It sounds like the Windows is registering the "Windows Key" as being in the "Pressed" position. This is the key between control and alt on the left side of the keyboard. Press it a few times and see if that helps. If it does not it sounds like that key or the keyboard may need replacement.

Right arrow key permanently 'pressed' down


Only solution here is to unplug the keyboard from the mother board. Just take apart the case and look for the ribbon cable going from the keyboard to the motherboard, and take it out.

Viewsonic Tablet PC keyboard issue.


Try reseating the cable that connects the keyboard first.

If that doesnt help there may be liquid around the connector and it needs to be cleaned off to keep the circuit from shorting out. You will need to find someone with the appropriate chemicals and may have to take the laptop further apart to clean it all up.

This is why when anyone gets a liquid spill i recommend getting it torn down right away and cleaned up, as it can damage things you cant even see. If the liquid has been in there too long it may not be repairable.

Good luck!
