You can try an external keyboard for the time being, but replacing the keyboard on the system is going to be the resolve. They usually run about $40 or less on EBay and take about 15 minutes to change on most portables

Probably this is hardware problem, so maybe only solution is to replace keyboard on your laptop.

Freeze up of Keyboard & Mouse?


Your issue is not uncommon. The drivers for the equipment have failed. There is no nice way to put it that would make you happy, but the items need to be replaced. They have come to the end of their life span and can no longer be used. Sorry for the bad news.

Calculator calculated (solving for FV) 5 N, 10 I/YR, -2000 PMT, FV= 10,168.06 But the answer should be 12,210.20 Help? :(


This is happening because your calculator is converting the 10% interest figure into a monthly amount (ie 0.833333%), but it isn't changing the number of periods or the periodic payment into monthly equivalents. In both cases, it is assuming that payments are made at the end of each period.

So the figure of 10,168.06 is arrived at as follows:
end of period 1: 2,000.00
end of period 2: 2,000 x 1.00833333 + 2,000 = 4,016.67
end of period 3: 4,016.67 x 1.00833333 + 2,000 = 6,050.14
end of period 4: 6,050.14 x 1.00833333 + 2,000 = 8,100.56
end of period 5: 8,100.56 x 1.00833333 + 2,000 = 10,168.06

whereas the figure of 12,210.20 is arrived at as follows:
end of period 1: 2,000.00
end of period 2: 2,000 x 1.1 + 2,000 = 4,200.00
end of period 3: 4,200 x 1.1 + 2,000 = 6,620.00
end of period 4: 6,620 x 1.1 + 2,000 = 9,282.00
end of period 5: 9,282 x 1.1 + 2,000 = 12,210.20

You will need to find out from your user manual how to stop this from happening, so that all the numbers remain as annual figures. It will involve setting the number of payments per year [P/YR] to 1 instead of 12.

I cant connect to yahoo mail


Ensure you have the correct e-mail address typed in, it must be exactly correct. Secondly with regard to the password, make sure Caps Lock, thats the key above the shift on the left hand side of your keyboard, is off. The light on the top right hand side of your keyboard marked with an A is off.
How long ago was it that you last logged in. Over a long period say 6-12months I think it is deleted, I may be wrong.
Also try using either .com or .co.uk at the end of address.
Your timely rating of this soloution is much appreciated.
Thanks

A few keys on my Acer 4420 are not working properly and I have no idea as to why. The keys are my o, p, l, ' and period keys. When I do use them they type out random characters. My o keys types out i75`,...


If a neighbor will let you,disconnect their keyboard and try it on yours.If it works normal,the problem is the keyboard.They are fairly cheap to buy brand new.If it does not go away,something is wrong,most likely the IC which interprets the keyboard signal and converts it to letters.It sounds most likely to be the keyboard because it is a few characters consistently.Perhaps something was spilled in that section as they are quite close together.Good luck,Greg

How do I type question mark and slash on this keyborad


Look to the right of the N and M and COMMA and PERIOD keys, for the SLASH key.

Below the COMMA and PERIOD keys, is there a key labelled ALT(ernate) GR(aphic)? If so, hold that key down, press the key to the right of the PERIOD key, and press the ALT GR key, and see if a SLASH is displayed.

Keyboard period repeats


I have had the same problem for ever. I have found that unplugging the USB dongle, waiting 10+ seconds and than plugging it back in tends to fix it right away.

After a few weeks you might have to do it again. Annoying problem but a simple fix
