My keyboard is not working properly although it says it is

I would clean the key board. Take a picture of your key board, then pop out all the keys. very easy to do, just stick something underneath them and pry. clean keyboard, then reassemble using picture. If that doesn't fix it, then I would suggest new keyboard.

How do you print screen?

Hi John,

To print the screen what you see, Press the Print Scn Button on top row of your keyboard.

Open Paint Brush or Microsoft Word and mouse right click and click left click on Paste.

Click on File and Print button or CTRL + P key to open the print dialog box and click print.

It used to be much easier earlier when there were dot matrix printer which would directly print when Print screen button was pressed. But today you need to follow this work around to print the screen

After using a wireless keyboard with my laptop some of the keys are not working properly e.g. if I hit 'o' I get '6', this happens with p,k,l,m as well.

These are only suggestions but 1) change the batteries in the keyboard, 2) clean the transmitter and receiver windows if it is an infrared unit. 3) CAREFULLY!!! remove the back of the keyboard and look at how the key switches are configured. If they are the less expensive plastic sheet printed circuit board and the keys have the little carbon buttons on the bottom that makes contact across the associated PCB traces, try CAREFULLY cleaning the button and trace with a cotton swab moistened with a little rubbing alcohol. DO NOT soak it or scrub it as it doesn't take a lot to damage these parts. If it is a more sophisticated unit using Hall Effect switches, these are magnetic sensors with no moving parts. When you press a key, it passes a small magnet on the bottom of the key past the the sensor activating it sending a signal to the computer as to which key was pressed. If this is the case, hopefully you have something magnetic in your pocket or nearby sending false signals to the sensor. If you are a HAM operator, strong RF radiation can also send false signals. If this is the case, check your radio, coax or any linear amplifiers for RF leakage. If this is NOT the case, again carefully open the back of the keyboard to see if one of the key magnets may have become dislodged, misalligned or if a Hall Effect sensor became misalligned. Last but not least hopefully a sensor has not malfunctioned as they are usually surface mount devices and are next to impossible to replace on a work bench without specialized equipment and rock steady hands. You can put away the 200 watt soldering gun, Tex. :) as they are originally built by robot. If this is the case, replace the keyboard.
Good luck.

Emachines w3507 power

detarch all accessories or hardware connected to the system , then bring out the power pack itself out completely look for a soldering led to test the functionality of the power pack itself if it rotates the fan of its pack by looping the first hole to the third hole cable in the power pack connector that will head into the motherboard. therefore, check the mother board if there is any damage on it like some component if all this is false . then plug the power pack to the outlet and fix the connector of the power pack to the motherboard after detaching both cd drive , floopy disk drive leaving the hard disk and the memory . then change the memory card and press on the system there should be a solution from all this . the problem should be from the Memory not to be able to start up the system but go through those process i have given you before concluding it was the memory ok....

kindly rate this solution......

Graphics Cards causes computer to not display

Hi there.
I'm working on the assumption that the graphics card is a PCI Express card.
Remember that if you are swapping from on-board graphics to a card you have to go into the BIOS and tell the machine that the primary graphics adapter is AGP/PCI Express.
Plug the VGA cable into the on-board graphics port, start the computer and enter the BIOS, tell the computer to use the AGP/PCI card as primary, press F10, save the changes and exit the bios.
The computer will try and restart so let it boot to post and turn it off, then put in your card and try to boot again.
Please post back if you need more help or advice.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

Try these (un order of degree of difficulty) 1. Try replacing the battery on the system board. it is  typically a CR2032 button-style battery. This helps if the computer has been off for a long time.  2. Make sure all dust has been blown or vacuumed out of the computer. 3. Check to see if the USB pins are bent inside the connector on the back and the front of the computer. Straighten if possible. 4. Remove add-in cards, fans, shrouds, and heatsinks, then check the system board for leaky or mushroomed capacitors. If you would like, this may also be a good time to see if the processor is seated correctly or possibly short-circuited (burned black on the bottom, burnt or missing pins, etc). If it is any of these, you may need a new system board (motherboard) 5. It may be that you need a new power supply. Do your best to make sure that it will fit your computer case and have all the power connectors you need; they are not created equal.

Cannot get into bio settings

have you used the F2 key with success on this board before? since you did not specify the bios type, then try the DELETE key instead of the F2 key.
