Well..sure..those are most likely from a bad keyboard, or some crud under those keys.

You might need to replace the keyboard. It should be a fairly inexpensive fix for a computer shop.

I have an acer 5741G which my father got me last year. i have just installed one game in it. when i play the laptop gets heated too much(that too within 30 minutes) and i have to stop playing to cool it...

Overheating of a laptop can cause degredation of components and possibly system failure but generally it could be a very simple fix. Best thing to do is to go out and buy a laptop cooling stand for it. The laptop will sit on this stand, which has fans that will blow cool air into the laptop from it's intake below the laptop and this should help to keep it from reaching critical temperatures. I recommend a laptop cooling stand for anyone who owns a laptop as the one fault of almost all laptops is the intake is usually directly below the laptop, and when you rest it on your lap you end up choking out it's air supply allowing it to overheat.

My son's dell Inspiron mini is having problems after sign on. The Desktop and windows that appear after that are reading upside-down and we cannot figure out why it happened. Any advise to get it...

I think that Ctrl+(Alt and/or Shift)+(Up or Down) should fix it. There are a couple of key combos to check, but I'm sure that one of the above will fix it for you.
If the key replys dont work you can go into the advanced settings of your video card and set it there. On my x1400 I can do the same thing in the ATI Catalyst Control Center. Once your in there you can turn the Hot Keys off that will flip your screen like that and you can also flip your screen the right way round.

Steps to get there if you have an ATI video card and ATI Catalyst Control Center installed.

1 - Right click on your desktop.
2 - Select "properties".
3 - Select "settings".
4 - Select "advanced".
5 - Select "ATI Catalyst Control Center".
6 - Select "Displays Manager"
7 - Once the "Displays Manager" tab opens you should see at the bottom tab you should see a box marked "rotation". Set your rotation to 0 degrees landscape.

While you are also in the ATI Catalyst Control Center you can also click on the "Hot Keys" tab and turn the ATI hot keys off that flipped your screen in the first place. John

I just got a laptop and it kicked me off the internet after it has shut down saying no connection. I was able to restore and it fixed problem. 7 days later same thing saying no wireless detected, but i...

This might be an issue with your wireless device driver. Follow the steps.

Open RUN from START menu, type DEVMGMT.MSC, this will open the Device Manager window. There you can able to view the Network Adapter. Expand it and you can view your Wireless Adapter there. Right Click on that and select Uninstall. Reboot your PC and check whether its working or not.

If still not working means you need to re-install the wireless driver. If you have a driver CD insert that and install the wireless driver once again.
Or else you can download it from the below link (click on Dell).

Please let me know the status.

My dell inspiron cannot boot. On startup dell logo screen appears with only f2 and f12 options then my screen goes black with a flashing dash in top left corner. I cant access safe mode, i cant do anything...

The Operating System in your hard disk gone corrupt, you need new installation of Operating System using boot from CD/DVD.
P.S. Formating of Harddisk is recommended, because it seems the act of virus infection
Good Luck

E1705 laptop--tried to install a XP 3 pack, but it wouldn't install. Now can't get into windows even in safe mode. The driver comes up as a problem, but I don't know how to delete it from the system...

Since you are not able to boot to normal mode or safe mode, you have a couple of options available, one is a repair install of windows (may fix but risk of data loss) , second is a manual system restore listed below.
To perform system restore in the Recovery console
Step 1: Boot the system with the CD (Tap F12 while booting and select boot from CD)
Step 2: At "Welcome to setup screen" Press R
Step 3: Select the appropriate path for windows and press enter
        If it asks you for the administrator password, type the known password and press enter or just hit enter
Step 4: We will now see the Prompt c:\windows
Step 5: type cd ..
Step 6: type cd system~1\_resto~1 and press Enter
Step 7: If "access denied"
Step 8: type cd windows\system32\config and enter
Step 9: Type ren system system.bak and enter
Step 10: restart the computer and get back to recovery     
console (follow step 1 - 5)
Step 11: type cd system~1\_resto~1 and press Enter
Step 12: type dir
               it will list you restore points
                        (e.g. RP1, RP2, RP3, RP4, etc...)
Step 13: select the one from the list except the last one say RP4   
Step 14: type cd RP3 (or RP2 or RP1 or RPn) and enter
Step 15: type cd snapshot and enter
Step 16: type copy _registry_user_.default c:\windows\system32\config\.default and enter
Step 17: type copy _registry_machine_security c:\windows\system32\config\security and enter
Step 18: type copy _registry_machine_software c:\windows\system32\config\software and enter
Step 19: type copy _registry_machine_system c:\windows\system32\config\system and enter
Step 20: type copy _registry_machine_sam c:\windows\system32\config\sam and enter
step 21: type cd \
Step 22: type cd windows\system32\config and enter
Step 23: type ren system.bak system and enter
Step 24: type exit and enter
Step 25: the computer restarts and the system will be 
successfully restored

HP Compaq NX960 Laptop Keyboard Problem

This is generally a sensitivity issue with the keyboard. It's usually caused when the rubber depressors that activate each key start getting worn. Sometimes you can take each key off individually, take off the rubber depressor and clean the contact point on the keyboard and up inside the depressor where it makes contact. Clean it with with rubbing alcohol and Q-tips. This is alot of work and only fixes the problem about 60% of the time. Your only other option is replacing the keyboard.
