Hi, I would wonder if you haven't gotten a bad controller? If the Software accepts, your "Input" from the (a) Button, and yet still "Asks" for it to be pressed, again, is very unusual, IF after pressing, it doesn't work at all, then most definitely you have a faulty Controller, or controller port. You need to isolate the problem. IF The Nintendo, does NOT respond to the Button, at all. then you will have to try another controller to test it. Now IF it works, after you press the button, but STILL asks you to press it, then you STILL need to swap out the controllers to prove, IF using another controller, a Know Good" one, then your Nintendo, has developed a curious fault, internally, and will have to go back to Nintendo for repair. Also you could try disconnecting from the mains, disconnect and reconnect all controllers, also try "other" games and see if the problem "Follows" form program top program. manual › ... › Video Game Accessories › ... › Nintendo Wii - 5 hours ago
Ok, links above, directly above, a how to do everything.. above that, is a how to test controller, above that is how to set up, above that is more about the controller, Please check out ALL links, that way you can get all the info.

    Have you checked the batteries in the remote?

    It may not be syncing up to the wii, this could be due to low batteries or maybe just the controller needing to be calibrated..

    so check the batteries,

    replacing them is probably a good idea, especially if you cant remember the last time it was replaced..

  • Tre Elkins Apr 26, 2010

    try resyncing your wii remote now that you have replaced the batteries..

    you need to press both the red button on the wii, and the one on the controller at the same time..

    here is a more detailed description..

  • Tre Elkins Apr 27, 2010

    not sure if you seen the last message i sent.. wondering if it helped you, or your still having issues.

SOURCE: step off the board and


This is a common issue for the Wii Balance Board. Here is how you do it:

  1. Take the batteries out.
  2. Take out the screws from each foot in every corner of the board using a Philips screwdriver. Remove the back cover.
  3. The sensors are located on each corner, it is a metal plate. Loosen the screws using TORX screwdriver.
  4. Re seat the small metal plates by putting it back. Don't screw too tight.
  5. Put the cover back and foot on. Put the batteries back in.
I have also written a tip about this with video, you can visit it here.

Hope this helps!

How do you reboot aspireone

I will assume that by reboot you understand reinstall the operation system and I will give you the options for it ..
First and the most simple way is to use the recovery partition some laptops came with from factory , and reinstall eh system completely .to do so you need to have one ..and to engage it press F11 on start or press f12 to get the boot menu and choose the partition for recovery from the menu and press enter .This will start it and you probably have some options for repair or reinstall from scratch ..If you do not know the exact key ..take a close look when it starts cause it is indicated on screen ..
Another way it is to use a recovery disk ..and the procedure is to start the computer with the disk inside and if it asks you to press any key to boot from the disk do it and will start the recovery ..If it does not asks it means the boot order have to be changed from bios .To do so F2 on start and go to bios ..and in there select advanced settings ..and under the boot sector the CD /DVD to be the first boot device ..After selecting it press F10 to save the settings and restart .It will work .
3rd posibility in case there is no recovery disk or partition available is to use a boot-able disk with the operation system on it , and same way ...Insert the disk sure you select the boot device in bios ..and press any key when it asks to start installing the OS ..Or ..if you do not want to mess with bios settings ..just insert the disk ..and restart ..and press f12 right the way ..and in the boot menu single action boot from disk drive ..and enter to engage will ask to press key to confirm and start loading files..
When you get to the agreement you confirm it ..and after that select the C drive for to install into it ..and go on ..(I suggest to format the drive in quick mode (ntfs )

Dell M70 laptop won't boot up

If you have a Windows installation CD, you can use the Recovery mode to attempt to fix the problem.

Turn on computer, insert CD into drive.
Press any key to boot from CD
Windows installation process will start
After a few minutes, a screen will come up telling you to hit ENTER to install Windows, or to press R to enter the Recovery Console
Press "R"
You will be asked which operating system
Most times there is only one option, select 1
At command prompt, type "fixboot" and press ENTER, if it asks if you're sure, type "Y" press ENTER again
Then, at command prompt, type "fixmbr" and press ENTER, again, type "Y" and press ENTER if it asks.
Type "exit" and press ENTER to exit recovery console and reboot.

Give that a try and see if it will boot for you.
