Sounds to me like the keyboard may be going bad on you. What you may want to try is to unplug the keyboard and to plug it back in and see if that works. Could be that keyboard needs to be reseated into its slot. Do this with the laptop turned off. Its a tab that comes up. Where the keyboard is hooked up to the keyboard use a flathead screwdriver and put it a liitle bit underneath the tab that is holding the keyboard cable in place. Turn the screwdriver around to make the tab come up and it will release the keyboard cable. Then go ahead and make sure the keyboard cable is seated properly.

Turn on the laptop and if it works properly then your good, if your still having the same problems then the keyboard needs to be replaced.

720 touch screen unresponsive and i cannot click yest to hook to computer or move forward


Sometimes these screens can just die, offering the "opportunity" to buy a newer technology! First thing to do is a full reset - check the manual to find out how, but it's going to be something like a little button, maybe inside the battery compartment, look for a small hole that might take a paper clip. Failing that, take it back to the store, especially if it's relatively new.

My ipod touch 4th generations says ipod disabled connect to itunes, but screen is locked


Like all electronic devices, iPods sometimes freeze and become unresponsive. Sometimes iPods lock up when they're dropped on the ground or come in contact with water, but less destructive accidents may also cause them to stop working. All versions of the iPod have a way to reset their hardware should they stop playing music or refuse to turn off.

Check the "Hold" switch on the top case of your iPod to be sure it isn't activated. An iPod will appear frozen and unresponsive if this feature is activated. A lock symbol will appear on your iPod's screen if it is in Hold mode. Switch the "Hold" button on and off once. Place one finger on the "Menu" button and another on the center button. Press both buttons at the same time and hold them for up to 8 seconds. Release the "Menu" and center buttons once the Apple logo appears on your iPod's screen. Try releasing the buttons and pressing and holding them a second time if the logo does not appear, as it can sometimes take several tries to reset a severely frozen iPod. Press and hold the top button and the center "Home" button on a frozen and unresponsive iPod touch to reset it. Hold the buttons for at least 10 seconds and wait for the Apple logo to appear on the screen, then release the buttons. Connect your iPod to its powerblock or a computer if it is still frozen. Wait 5 minutes and then try to reset it. Sometimes an iPod can appear frozen when its battery runs out and just needs a few minutes of power to start working again. Hope this helps.

My iPod Touch has an unresponsive touch screen.


Try restoring it. Instructions are in the restore section of your iPod. If you restore it, don't update the iPod, because it seems that the update made your iPod unresponsive. It should be fine then. Good Luck!

sometimes you just need to take the battery out and put it back in. If you've already done that then you may need to take it to Verizon and get it updated.
