Re: installed a new printer and now typing words across...

You can try the following two things...
1. Try to empty all temporary files. this can be done by Start -> Run-> (type) " %temp% " ( everything within the inverted comas and press ok). A screen will appear all files and delete.
2. open control panel. go to printer and other hardware. select the keyboard icon and and increased the repeat rate.

hope this helps

Option (1)
To resolve this issue, use the Windows XP Recovery Console to replace the Msvcrt.dll file with the original version. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Insert your Windows XP CD-ROM into the computer's CD-ROM drive or DVD-ROM drive, and then restart your computer from the CD-ROM.

    NOTE: Some computers may require that you modify the basic input/output system (BIOS) settings before you can start the computer from a CD-ROM. For information about how to modify BIOS, see your computer documentation.
  2. At the Welcome to Setup screen, press R to start the Recovery Console.
  3. Press the number key that corresponds to the installation that you want to repair, and then press ENTER.
  4. Type the Administrator password, and then press ENTER.
  5. With the Windows XP CD-ROM still in the CD-ROM drive or DVD-ROM drive, type the following commands, pressing ENTER after each command:
    • cd system32
    • ren msvcrt.dll msvcrt.old
    • CD-ROM_or_DVD-ROM_Drive_Letter:
    • cd \i386
    • expand msvcrt.dl_ BootDriveLetter:\windows\system32
    • exit
    NOTE: BootDriveLetter refers to the drive letter of the boot drive. In other words, it refers to the drive where the Windows folder is located, which is probably drive C. CD-ROM_or_DVD-ROM_Drive_Letter refers to the drive letter of the CD-ROM or the drive letter of the DVD-ROM drive. The CD-ROM drive or the DVD-ROM drive are frequently located in drive D.

My Electronic crossword puzzles by RadioShack comes on but will not do anything. I just put in new batteries. I do not have my manual.

Adjusting The Display

To increase or decrease the display's contrast so it is easier to read,
hold down FUNCTION, then press /\ or \/ on the cursor pad.

Playing The Game

1. Press ON/OFF to turn on the game.

If you have not worked a puzzle since installing or replacing the
batteries, CROSSWORD MASTER appears. Otherwise, the display is as it
was when the game was turned off.

2. To start a new puzzle at any time, press FUNCTION and 1 (I), 2 (O), or
3 (P) at the same time. 1 is for beginner-type games, and 2 and 3
increase in difficulty. NEW GAME LEVEL 1, 2, OR 3 Y/N appears.

3. Press Y to start a new puzzle. A crossword grid with flashing cursor
appears (O).

Otherwise, press N. The display appears as it was when you pressed
FUNCTION and 1, 2, or 3.

4. Press (or hold down) /\, \/, <, or > on the cursor pad to move the
cursor around the puzzle.

5. With the flashing cursor in the desired location, press ? to see the
clue(s) for the word(s) in that location.

Any letters you already entered appear, along with a dash for each
missing letter. The number of letters appears in parentheses - for
example, (5) for a solution with 5 letters. If the solution includes
more than one word, the number of letters for each word appears in the
format - for example, (5, 3, 4) for a solution with three words.

If the flashing cursor appears at the junction of two words (across
and down), both clues appear, across first, then down.

6. Press ? again to return to the crossword display, then use the letter
keys to type your answer.

If the flashing cursor was at the junction of two words and you enter
the first letter of your answer, two small arrows appear in the
adjacent across and down squares. Before typing the rest of your
answer, press > or \/ (across or down) on the cursor pad to indicate
which word you are entering.

Press /\ on the keyboard to erase the letter just above, and < to
erase the letter to the left of, the flashing cursor.

To erase a word, hold down FUNCTION and press WORD DELETE (Z).

To spell check the puzzle at any time, hold down FUNCTION and press
SPELL (T). The [+] symbol indicates the location of each incorrect

When you complete a crossword correctly, GAME COMPLETED appears.

7. Press ON/OFF to turn off the game. The current puzzle is saved.

How will i restore deleted userinit file in system32 folder?

Insert the original Windows XP CD (Windows XP with Service Pack 2 is preferred, but not required) and reboot the computer. You may need to configure your computer to boot from the CD-ROM drive.When the Windows XP Setup has started, press "R" to "repair the Windows XP installation using Recovery Console".
Select the Windows installation to repair (generally this is C:\Windows) by typing its number and then pressing ENTER.
Type the Administrator password and press ENTER.

Type the following commands:

NOTE: If your CD-ROM drive has a different letter assigned to it, enter "X:" instead, where X is the appropriate drive letter. 

After entering "EXPAND USERINIT.EX_ C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32" you should see the text "1 file(s) copied", in which case all went well.

Remove the Windows XP CD, type "EXIT" and press ENTER to restart your computer. You should now be able to log on as normally.
