  1. Make sure there is no debris under the key - you can pop it off with a small flathead screwdriver. Clear any degris from under the key - use a cottonswab with a small amount of rubbing alcohol to clean any "sticky stuff"
  2. If that doesn't fix your problem, try downloading and installing the latest software for your keyboard: http://download.microsoft.com/download/6/f/2/6f207d9e-582c-4862-a631-8d20e91c5ff4/ITP32Eng6.20.182.0.exe Once installed, see if the button works now. If not try using the software to configure the key.
  3. If THAT doesn't fix your problem, then you might need to replace the keyboard.

Hope this helps! : )

Restore favorites


If you have backed up the computer (the entire users folder), your favorites are under users, the name you have for your account, and then favorites. Just copy this list back to the C drive (users, the name you have for your account, and favorites) from your back up. Now all your favorites are back.

I received e-mail from Yahoo request I upgrade to internet Explorer 9. After I download. I lost my FAVORITES. How I can get back?????


I unfortunately do not use internet explorer nine, but you can give this a quick whirl. If you're using windows XP, go to C:\Documents and Settings\Your User Name\Favorites, and verify your favorites are still there. If they are, you should be able to click the drop down menu in the favorites menu (in internet explorer) that says "Add to favorites", on the drop down menu should be import / export. You can import your favorites folder from there.
If you use windows 7 or Vista the folder is C:\Users\Username\Favorites, and everything else should be the same. Hope this helps!
