Question about Apple iMac G4 Desktop

1 Answer

Mac, the cursor still moves freely and the desktop and doc are visable, but I cannot get the cursor to open or shut down any window, program or the computer itself. Moreover, I cannot get the "control-option-command-power" buttons to shut the computer down. The power button itself will shut the computer down, however, when I turn it back on the same problem exists. What do I do?

Hy,
Try to use just the keyboard to slove this problem.
Push the Window button near the leftCtr button, and enter with the arrows key in "Control Panel". After that, enter in "Mouse". Use TAB key and the arrows to go in folowing option "Hardware"/""Properties"/"Driver"/"Update Driver" and install.

I hope to be usefull

HOW DO I FIX A FROZEN,UNMOVEABLE CURSOR ON A LENOVO T61 COMPUTER?


If your Lenovo is running Windows, you use your keyboard to shut it down. One way is to press ctrl + alt + delete; this will open the task manager. Use the keyboard to select your options or to shut it down from here.
Another way is by pressing alt + f4, but you must be in your desktop (main display). Also use the keyboard to select your options.

Unable to move cursor on lenovo x61


Are you trying to move the cursor with the trackpoint, a usb mouse, or the pen? Have you tried restarting your computer? Restarting would likely solve the problem. If you can't move the cursor to the start menu, you can open the start menu with the windows key, use the arrow keys to navigate to the power options. Use enter to select the power options and shut down or restart the computer. If this does not work, press and hold the power button for 5 or 10 seconds to force the computer to shut down.

What happened before this occurred? Did you install any programs or updates recently, or change any settings on your computer?

If the problem disappears when you move the computer back to the previous location, it's most likely something in the new location that is causing the problem. Could be a bad power outlet or some heavy duty electrical interference.

I have a dell c521 desktop I bought it from a rental place I do not have a reboot disc I've called dell suport they were no help is there any keyboard configureations to get this rebooted


***Using the Start Menu
  • Press a Windows key (the ones with the Windows symbol on as shown right), this will open up the Start Menu.
  • Use the cursor keys (the ones with arrows on) to highlight 'Turn off Computer' and press Enter to select it
  • A dialog box will open. Use the cursor keys to to highlight 'Shutdown computer', 'Turn off' or whatever your version of Windows says, and press Enter again.

***Using the 'three finger salute'
Hold down Ctrl and Alt, and press Delete.
Windows 2000 and XP Home Edition users will be presented with a dialog box with buttons on:
  • · Use the cursor keys to select the 'Shut Down' button and use Enter to select it.
  • · Select 'Shut down' from the list using the cursor keys and press Enter one more time.

In other versions of Windows the Task Manager will open:
  • · Hold down Alt and press U to open the 'Shut Down' menu.
  • · Use the cursor keys to highlight 'Turn Off' and press Enter.

***Hit Alt F4 'till you can't any more
The final method of shutting down that I will explain here is to hold down the Alt key and press F4 repeatedly. This will close every application that is open on Windows and eventually will close Windows itself. You may be asked if you want to save files by some programs, if so use the cursor keys and Enter to get past these dialog boxes.
