Keyboard not functioning


It may be a fault in the keyboard driver or in the keyboard itself. However if the character you need is not available on the keyboard directly it is possible to get any character by using the ASCII char code entry method. First off search the internet for a ASCII character number associating table (for a chart I like best, check here http://michaelgoerz.net/blog/2008/09/ascii-table/ascii.gif) now on this chart you have to use common fonts (IE: Ariel, times new roman, ect.) because some of the TTF fonts do not have all the characters in them available.
Now to practice using the characters, load Notepad and find the character you want to display from the chart (note: the number like 000d and 00h actually means 000 decimal and 00 hexadecimal, only use the number with the "d" after it with this method), on Notepad, after you pick out the character you want to display, press and hold the ALT key, and on your keypad (on most keyboards it is on the right side and resembles a calculator type keypad) while holding the ALT key down enter the number of the character you want to display (do not include the "d", only the number) then release the ALT key and that character should display for you in Notepad. Almost all standard fonts has the regular characters and some has the extended characters, you will have to check to see if the font uses them by trial and error. this method is a long lost forgotten means of putting characters into your documents which does not have keys on a standard keyboard (most standard keyboards only have 101 keys so this is the only way of using all the 255 character available in common fonts).
This is a built in function of all computers that uses Microsoft OS's and even DOS, HDOS, EDOS, (well all the DOS's), and you can use them anywhere you can type anything from your keyboard, (emails, letters, databases, spread sheets, etc.) if you can type from the keyboard to any program you can use these characters in this manner.
I hope this help you out!

How can I determine whether my typewriter is a Selectric II or III?


The video shows the models C, Selectric I, and Selectric II.
If your typewriter doesn't compare to any of these in the video it is most likely a Selectric III.
This will also help:
The Selectric III featured a 96-character element vs. the previous 88-character element. IBM's series of "Electronic Typewriters" used this same 96-character element. The 96-character elements can be identified by yellow printing on the top plastic surface and the legend "96," which always appears along with the font name and pitch. The 96- and 88-character elements are mechanically incompatible with each other (they won't fit on each other's machines) and 96-character elements were not available in as many fonts as the older 88-character types.

I cant uninstall programs from the control panel... i keep getting message ghost uninstaller says installation log file can not be found


This means that a program that you may have uninstalled earlier might have removed this needed file. You can reinstall windows..if this is your platform and select the repair instead of full install inorder to place this file back in your system. Please give more information if this does not work for you. Good Luck..

How i w'ill use hindi font's in microsoft word 2007 as I don't have hindi fonts please tell me how to gain hindi font's and how to install and use them


Open Microsoft word and select Symbol in insert menu. Select font as Mangal and subset as Devanagiri. Here u find all the characters that are required to type any alphabet.

Suppose if you want to type "अपुन अच्छा लडका है" Insert the following symbols in the order. Neglect + and <> signs. I just placed it for seperation.

अ + प + ु +न <> अ + च + ् + छ + ा + ल + ड + क + ा <> ह + ै

While typing the characters, you will observe the related characters merging themselves. After typing the required message, just copy and paste the characters wherever you want. Soon after u paste the message.. u may notice blank squares appearing instead of message (in Googletalk window for example).. Dont worry.. The tweak works after you save it/send it.

Your font is green only on msn. Go into msn log on and you have to go in to options and change the font color. It was probably a short cut key stroke you hit. If not you browsers is the problem
