    Do you receive an error window or anything else? Hit CTRL + ALT + DEL to bring up task manager-see if anything is still "thinking".

My word and excell files don`t open.the message displayed is this:This action is only valid for programs that are currently installed.


It sounds like you might have had a 30 day trial that has expired, so when you try to open the document it doesn't have a program to open in. If this is not the case, has anything happened to your computer lately?

Thanks,

Help.. my acer aspire computer screen has turned vertical on my notebook and the cursor isn't working.. what do I do?


Well, to get the screen back to normal, press Ctrl + Alt + Up Arrow. As for the cursor, try rebooting the computer after changing the screen back to normal. If that doesn't work, try another external mouse to get to the mouse settings from the control panel and see if anything has changed.
I hope this helps! Thank you for using FixYa!

I find it difficult to focus my cursor to a point I needed it with my touchpad. Some times the cursor automatically wonders about my desktop.


If your Laptop is charging, try taking it of from the charger and see it that stop the movement.
If it doesn't do anything then I am afraid you will have to take your Laptop to the nearest sales and service center.

Editing a document that has no security on it


This is an interesting problem. Since you've already tried copy/paste to a new document, I'll assume you don't care about the file so much as the text in it.

First, make a copy of the file and let's experiment with that.

You said you cannot copy the text, but I'm not sure if that is because you cannot "select" the entire text of the document or because the copy function is simply not working on that file. If you're able to open the document at all, try using keyboard commands to perform the copy/paste. Open the doc and leave the cursor at the beginning of the text. Then attempt to select all the text by pressing Ctrl-A. If that works, then press Ctrl-C. Leave the document open and press Ctrl-N to open a new doc page. Then press Ctrl-V and see if the text pastes in. One important thing to know would be if the text pastes but exhibits the same 'symptom'. If so, attempt an EDIT, PASTE SPECIAL and try pasting "unformatted text". Unfortunately, that method will also remove your formatting.

Here's another approach that may allow you to retain most MS Word formatting items. Click START, RUN and type "wordpad" .. Then hit ENTER. This launches MS Wordpad which should be able to open most .doc files. Use the FILE, OPEN menu items to locate and attempt to open the document in question. If from here you are able to select all the text (Ctrl-A) and copy it (Ctrl-C) and paste it (Ctrl-V) into a new doc file, then we will move on to another possible option.

Another approach would be to download one of the many different .doc repair utilities that exist. There are a number of free ones as well.. repairmyword.com advertises a number of free utilities you may have luck with.

Hopefully one of these will help fix the matter... if not, let us know!

Good luck!
