Software Opens without prompting and outside buttons stopped working??

My start menu keeps opening without prompting and now all of my outside buttons have stopped working. This just started last week and now my phone is unuseable. I have done soft reboot and a master reboot and still it is gone crazy.

    I have the exact same problem. I am not however willing to accept that it is just a "hardware failure". Other things in the software seem to be affected. The delete key on the software keyboard does not function and sometimes you are not able to enter text on either the soft keyboard or the sliding keyboard even when a text box is highlighted. This problem happened all of a sudden, and seems to be around the same time that I connected the phone to another computer at my office, other than my normal home computer.

We have an Acer P3250 projector that keeps prompting for a password upon start-up. However, when we enter the security password provided with the unit, it says it is "invalid".

Found an earlier suggestion on this site if you don't have the provided password and also already tried 1234.

1. Turn on the projector 2. Press "Power > Left > Left > MENU" (Opens the system menu)
3. Choose "RD Menu"
4. Choose " EEPROM Restore" (the projector turn off and the power lamp blink red for about 1 minut. Then it stops)
5. Turn on the projector again and it should work again

    Can not open control panel in window vista

    Have you installed anything else on the system? Also, you might check Event
    Viewer assuming that will open. Open the Start Menu, type Event Viewer in
    the search box, when you see the security prompt, click continue and it
    should open.

    If that doesn't resolve it type CMD in Start Search on the Start Menu. When
    you see CMD at the top of the Start Menu, right click, select "Run As
    Administrator." When the command prompt opens, type

    "sfc /scannow" without the quotes and let it run.

    If that fails to resolve it, check manufacturer websites to make sure all
    your device drivers are up to date, the same with all of your software, make
    sure the apps are Vista compatible and that you've installed any updates.
    Also, make sure you have no malware or any viruses. If all is fine you may
    need to do a repair, boot from the Vista DVD and choose the repair option at
    the setup screen.

    Control locked

    try pressing the buttons (with your monitor turned off) if they have allowances for switching (if it is a push button then each should be pressed slightly and you should feel that it switches through!) if you pressed it and felt hard ( like something was stuck) then the buttons might have misalligned from the switches on the board. do not open your monitor unless you have electronic servicing experience. other causes might be the monitor's sync. processing IC. it could be defective.
