Question about HP Compaq Presario SR5130NX PC Desktop

1 Answer

Volume up key puts computer to sleep

When I push the volume up key, the computer immediately goes to sleep. I can't wake it up right away either, I must wait more than 5 minutes before the computer will let me wake it back up, and it displays a screen saying these programs could not be shutdown, as if it was trying to turn off.

    This problem started in August, after windows updates were. I did not install any programs near this time. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the keyboard drivers, and updating the HP Enhanced Multimedia Keyboard software, but neither helped.
    I'm using a Compaq Easy Access USB Keyboard model SDM4540UL

    This problem started after windows updates in early September.
    I have not installed any new software in the past couple months.
    I'm sure other software does automatic updates as well, but I don't know what may have happened around the time this problem started.
    When I push the volume up key on the keyboard, the computer goes to sleep. Pushing buttons or moving the mouse don't stop the computer from going to sleep. I can't wake it up right away either. I have to wait several minutes, then moving the mouse will wake the computer. Once the screen comes back on, it has a dark grey background, with a windows dialog saying some programs could not be shut down, as if Windows had been trying to shut down.
    Obviously, I do not want the volume button to put the computer to sleep. I am using a Compaq Easy Access USB keyboard. I've tried updating the drivers, which are the Vista default USB keyboard drivers. I've tried removing the Compaq keyboard software, which makes the internet keys and stuff work. The problem still exists. Then I tried reinstalling the keyboard software, still have problem. I've tried checking the software mapping for keys, but they don't even show the volume keys as being programmable.
    I tried Compaq support, but they say it's a Windows Vista problem, and to reinstall. Reinstalling Vista is a pain, since I have to call Microsoft to reactivate. But that may be what I have to do.

My Apple ipod nano 16 GB MC694LL/A is having volume issues, it will only stay on one level and if I try to turn it down it will not go back up and if I try to turn it up it will not change. Also my screen,...

Hi - Sounds like it may need to be reset. Here's how:

  • Connect your iPod to the power cord for at least ten minutes before resetting.
  • Reset the iPod by holding down the Sleep/Wake button AND the Volume Down button - together - until you see the Apple logo appear. When you see the Apple logo appear, let go of the keys.
  • Connect the iPod to your computer and make sure it appears in iTunes.
See if that helps. If not, leave another message - there's another procedure you can also do, but it's a little more complicated.

Unlock screen

  1. 1

    Press any button to wake the phone up from sleep mode. The phone will go into standby mode, which means it will light up and be ready for you to use it.

  2. 2

    Press the "Talk" key. Hit the "Menu" key, or the "Volume" key. Press the "Left/Right Soft Key." Each Samsung is a little different, and your user manual will tell you exactly what key to push.

  3. 3

    Enter your four-digit unlock code when the phone prompts you to enter it. This code is given to you when you activate the phone. The phone will unlock and you can now use the device.

I am running a model 1045 on VISTA. The sleep key puts my computer to sleep but what key wakes it up?

Hi there,

Normally when you put your computer to sleep with your keyboard you only have to press a key on the keyboard to wake the computer again.
I normally use my spacebar to wake my pc but any key should work fine.

Kind regards!!!

AOC Monitor says "no signal" and won't wake up!

This monitor refuses to wake up because it cannot find the signal from the computer.

When the light is amber, force the pc to shut down by holding the power button until all lights go off. Then, after about 10 seconds, power the pc back up again.

If this does not start your monitor, unplug all the monitors connections and plug them back in again. These things should reform the connection from the pc to the monitor.

good luck
