Question about Apple iMac G3, G4 USB Keyboard 9224078

1 Answer

Files wont print


I run an iMac OS9.2.2. I have a Lexmark X5150 all in one printer which works fine when I send files to print from my Sony Vaio laptop, so there is nothing wrong with the printer itself.

When I send files to print from my Mac nothing happens at all. There is never a desktop printer icon on my desktop which I think may be the problem. I have tried uninstalling the software but it wont allow me to as I can't access a print queue to delete before uninstalling. How can I get around this problem? I have tried installing over existing files but still there is no desktop icon. I have downloaded the correct printer driver and that hasn't helped either. There is no reference to the Lexmark 5150 in the printer descriptions list in the extensions folder either.
The printer shows up in the chooser and when I select it an icon should appear on the desktop but doesn't.
Have you any ideas what I can try next. Thankyou. Dave

My sony vaio laptop will load then goto a black screen with a cursor when there should be the log in screen. ive tried pressing shift 5 times and pressing f 8 what do i do

You have an infection.
You need to load the explorer.exe
Do as follows:
When you are at the black screen with the cursor, press Ctr+Alt+Del, and start the Task Manager console.
From the File menu, select New Task (Run...)
Type explorer.exe and hit ENTER.
Your Desktop will appear again.
From there, try to clean your system from all infections.
When your system is clean and back to normal, look into a protection system called Pc Laptop Guard, so you wont have to go thru this or any other inconvenience again.

Don't forget to rate this answer if it helps.

Hi, I have a Sony Vaio VGC LM 18G. Suddenly four keys on the wireless Keyboard no longer register. the keys feel fine they don't feel like they are sticking or that anything is stuck underneath them. I was...

Did you or anyone else spilled anything on them? Do you have a pet that may stepped on your keyboard?
What you can do is to take out on of the problematic keys. Disconnect from power and use a small ruler to pop the key out. See if anything is under there. Maybe hair or food. Do not shake your laptop as this can lead to other problems. Get a dry cloth and clean the key base and underneath the key. Reinsert the key and try it again. If this works do the same for the other keys.

I have a sony vaio lap top. some keys type incorrect letters and figures.what to do

There could be three issues here.....first go to control panel > regional and language settings and make sure that all the settings are for the country you are in,re: English-United States. Hit apply and ok to exit, when you change location there, you will be prompted to reboot. The second reason could be malware or a virus. Go here

run this program, perform a quick scan and then show results. Delete all that it finds. Then get this program....

Install this and it will ask you want to do a pre-boot scan, click yes and reboot. It will scan all your files before windows loads.
The third issue is a corrupt keyboard driver or bad circuit board on the keyboard. Try uninstalling the keyboard from the device manager in the control panel > system folder > hardware tab. When windows reboots, it will be forced to re-install the hardware and load a fresh driver. Hope this points you in a correct direction.

Sony Vaio running Vista Home Premium has stoped

Sony Vaio is one of the most unreliable laptops known to man, and some known to monkeys. My suggestion- save everything you want on cds/dvds and reload whendoze. After that, send it back to Sony if you can.
