When you click on the home icon that is taking you to your homepage (Yahoo! is generally the default). IE isn't the greatest browser, anyway...try downloading Firefox. It's a lot better.

SOURCE: Keyboards wont work

Try hitting the Tab key from the web page address. If you can type then, it sounds like you've got a mouse pointer problem. Also try changing your search engine. Left click on the Yahoo symbol, then "Manage Search Engines" and select a different search program (Google, Amazon, e-bay, etc).

Since you can type, it's not a keyboard problem.

You may also want to try dragging your browser to a different part of your screen and trying to type with the window in a different part of the display. It's unlikely, but you may have a bad touchpad that doesn't recognize the upper right corner, so moving it to a different part of the display may isolate that problem, remote though it is.

SOURCE: I purchased a Sylvania Netbook

This is a very limited machine, the only thing that you can do with it is read Emails and go to the internet and look at some you tube. There is not enough memory to support detail such as facebook. The browser I.E. for CE is also very limited and some sites will not down load to it as it is recognized as a outdated program. Since there is no way to download games and play them you are out of luck.
