    Can you hear the Power supply fan running in the back of the computer? Usually, these symptoms indicate a faulty power supply to the motherboard. When was the last time the fan was cleaned?

    How can i freeze the keys to print page?what keys do i press like ctrl alt....

    If you want to capture a snapshopt of the entire desktop as you see it at any given moment, hold down the CTRL key and go up to the top right and find "prt scrn" and press that key. It will look as if nothing happened. Open a Word document and be sure to left click once with the cursor anywhere in the blank document and then press CTRL+V. Viola...your desktop photo is there.

    For other commands,

    ctrl+A means select all
    ctrl+C means copy all
    ctrl+V means paste

    There are many others. Check out this link.

    Have a great day

    Emachince t3604 with vista wont boot just a blank screen tried to get bios screen safe mode etc. but nothing shows on the monitor. n e advice?

    Make sure --- turn power off, leave off for 30 seconds. Power up again, holding the F2 key down. This WILL take your eMachines into Setup (BIOS). If it doesn't then your keyboard is most likely defective. If it does get you to setup, press F10 and Enter. Reboot with Ctrl+Alt+Del and this time hold the F8 key down ... just hold it down till something happens, choose Start in Safe Mode with Network Support. Again if F8 doesn't work probly says Keyboard is bad. This is for whatever Operating System you are using.
