Definitely sounds like a stuck key.

Assuming the system is a portable, you can try this for troubleshooting. Connect an External keyboard and disconnect the cable for the internal one, see if the issue stops. If it does, the innternal keyboard is bad and needs to be replaced

Keyboard inserts backslashes when I type


Unless you're fairly technically adept and mechanically inclined, the easiest fix is to replace the keyboard. They aren't that hard to find and aren't all that expensive.
If you don't have a clue how to do this, then your best bet is to send it to a professional that will source out the cheapest replacement keyboard and offers inexpensive international shipping like SuperTech-IT.com

How to set the timer on the nikon D 90 digital camera


Press and hold the release mode button on the top of the camera (marked with overlapping rectangles), then turn the main command dial (on the back) until the self-timer symbol (one-handed clock) appears on the command panel.

Computer when i turned it on said disk read erroe occured and now when i try to start it in safe mode it just keeps restatring it self


1
Start up your computer.

2
Immediately insert your Windows XP install CD. As the computer boots, a boot menu will appear (if you did not insert the CD in time, you will not see the menu; in this event, simply reboot the computer again).

3
Select the option to boot from the CD. A setup screen will soon appear.

4
Press the "R" button on your keyboard at the setup screen in order to open the repair console.

5
Type in the administrator account's log in password if you are prompted to do so. If there is no log in password, simply leave the password slot blank and continue. After this step, a command prompt will appear.

6
Type in "chkdsk" (minus the quotation marks) and press "Enter." Allow the operation to run.

7
Type "Exit" (again, minus the quotation marks) when the operation is complete, and press "Enter." If your computer boots correctly, great! If not, move on to the next step.

8
Reboot and repeat Steps 3 through 5.

9
Type "fixboot" (minus the quotation marks) and press "Enter." Once it is complete, repeat Steps 7 to 8.

10
You might need to reinstall your operating system.

Thanks.

  1. Turn calculator on
  2. Press and HOLD the key [ON]
  3. Press and release the key with "E" to its right (the one before last in first row)
  4. Relaese the [ON] key.
It tests the RAM and ROM. You will see various patterns on screen. Afterwards you should see
IROM OK,
IRAM OK,
HP48GX OK
The self test will continue repeatedly until you perform a
System Halt
  1. Press and HOLD the [ON] key
  2. Press and release the "C" key
  3. Release the [ON] key.
The empty stack should appear.

If you do not see IROM OK and IRAM OK, the calculator requires service.

If the above procedure is successful, you may want

  1. Turn calculator on
  2. Press and HOLD the [ON] key
  3. Press and release the "D" key.
  4. Release the [ON] key
  5. Press and release the "E" key. KBD 1 should appear on the top left corner of the screen.
  6. Starting at the upper left corner of the keyboard, and moving Left to right, press every key in sequence. If you follow the sequence and the keys are functioning properly you should hear a hight pitch sound at each press.
  7. If everything is OK, when you press the last key (+) the screen displays KBD 1 OK.
To exit the keyboard test proceed as described above under System Halt.

If you follow the proper sequence and a hexadecimal number appears after pressing a key, the calculator requires service.
Hope it helps.

Dam that backslash


The \ key appears to be stuck. The keyboard is about $20 part and can be purchased on EBay with ease. Takes bout 15 minutes for a novice to install. The keyboard may resolve the touchpad issue too.
If the touchpad is still erratic after the keyboard is replaced, Flash the BIOS to latest version available and see if any change. If not the palmrest assembly will need to be replaced (About an hour job) or use an external mouse

Cant turn off panasonic PIP


To turn off the "stuck" pip on a Panasonic tv without a remote, turn off the tv. Then hold down the "Action" button on the front of the tv and press the power button. This will activate a reset and self check of the systems and voila! The pesky pip screen will be gone! This is on an approximately 10 year old regular crt "CT-xxxxx" series tv.
