Sometimes the problem is the retainer clip is broken, and then no cleaning will do, you will need to buy a laptop key or laptop key retainer clip, you can get on ebya or this laptop keys seller.

You need to clean your keyboard:
Invert your laptop so that the keyboard is inverted over a piece of clean paper: you might be surprised to see all the junk falling out of the keyboard. Briskly blow air between the keys and repeat the exercise several time.
If softdrink or food was accidentally spilt on the keyboard, you may need to very careful and gently lift out the appropriates keys and clean the mess with wet cotton bud. Putting the Press on key caps can be pretty tricky so observe how they are originally fitted.
Hope it helps. Let me know how you go.

There are two samples for each note in the "Piano" sound samples. This allows you to play "soft = p" or "Loud = f" based on how hard you hit the keys.
The default setting of 2 suit most people. You can change the touch response to 3 (more hard) or 1 (less hard). With tough response set to 3 - you play mostly the soft samples until you bang the key much harder.
This is a keyboard that tries to give a bit of effect that an acoustic piano hammer mechanism would give.

Some touchpads need harder ( not soft ) touches
you can do that, or press the mouse keys instead of clicking the touchpad

My gateway laptop will not eject cd. the light comes on "that it should be ejecting" but does not. cant hear the durner moving

What happens if you right click on the drive letter in Windows Explorer and select the eject option? To manually open the drive look for the little hole on the drive bay where you can insert a straightened out paper clip, it should only go in so far before meeting slight resistance, push a little harder and it should then open. This works with the laptop powered on or off.

How come my laptop keys are harder to press than usual? This started when I pressed the keys down very hard. I have tried pulling them out just a little bit but did'nt work.

There is not so much that could be done to repair a keyboard. Disassemble the laptop, check the ribbon cable connecting the keyboard to the motherboard. If the ribbon cable is loose, tighten it. If it is tight, replace the keyboard with a new one.

Have a dell laptop but it doesnt start when i push the power key a little lock with the letter a inside blinks what does this mean then the computer shuts off by itself

That icon is the indicator for Caps Lock (aka Shift Lock). When in the operating system (Windows), you can turn the icon on (or should be able to) by pressing the CAPS Lock key, and turn it off by pressing the CAPS Lock key again.

Short of doing a hard To do a hard reset take out the sim card and memory card (if you have one) hold the 2 soft keys (the keys about the internet "e" and the messanging "letter"...hold those keys in while pushing the soft reset button (to the right of your usb connector) with your stylus. Follow the directions to reset the phone.

Use Soft Key Reset


Locate your soft keys on your phone, should be buttons above end and send.

Press and hold both soft keys.

Locate reset button on your phone should be on side and in center you may need to use your stylus to depress it.

Gently press the reset button while still holding the soft keys, release the reset button but continue to hold the soft keys.

In about 10 Seconds it should ask you to confirm the reset, once you do it will be set back to manufacturers settings.

Hope this helps

Compaq parcerio 2000 laptop web connection light will not come on

did you refer to the wifi light? actually wifi radio receiver is a manual thing and you should turn it ON and OFF manually. Im not sure with the model you described but try to look for a slide or push button with the wifi icon (an antenna with 3 waves). then try to see if the wifi led is lit. Another way, if your device is soft touch, then there is no hard press button for it. it will be a combination of FN + a function key (look at the function key with the wifi icon)

Touch screen not working...

Hi guys,

i post this solution for those wo will be in the same situation in th next future. I had the same problem with my HTC TyTN (Herm 200). The touch-screen was simply not working. I read many 'solutions' on the net but none worked. I did not try the hard-reset because i was convinced this is not a software problem, and resetting the WM5 will not help. So i brushed the corners, looked for small particles which were pressing on the cover of the touch screen. but it did not work. finally i found one post (i don't remember where exactly) where a guy used a credit card and pushed it all around the touch-screen under the metal case (a bit harder). i tried it and it worked. i pressed harder especially in the lower part, above the buttons. and simply it worked ! no problem since then.
