What do i do when a key(i don't know which one) is stuck on my laptop restricting me from typing in my password?


You have a couple options. If you are running Windows 7 you might be able to activate the onscreen keyboard. Details here: http://www.softwareok.com/?seite=faq-Win-7&faq=22

Alternatively I suggest you buy or borrow a standard USB keyboard and plug it into an available USB port. This should get recognized by Windows and you should be able to login.

Ultimately your laptop keyboard would need to be repaired. It is possible that a small object such as a staple has fallen into under a key causing the problem. With the power turned off and the lid open, you might turn over the laptop and gently shake the laptop to see if anything falls out.

Dell vostro a860 won't connect to internet


Why not? Do you have the wireless turned on? Did you put the correct password in?


Maybe you don't have your wireless turned on. Look on both sides and in front for the Wireless Switch and turn it on.

Also once the wireless switch is turned on there are keystrokes that can toggle the wireless on or off. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN function key located at the lower left of the keyboard, then hit the correct F1 thru F12 key that toggles the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit will have the wireless signal icon )))) on it. Or it might have the icon of a tower with the wireless signal icon )))). Normally the screen will display Wireless On or Wireless Off when you toggle the wireless.

If you put the wrong password in, it will never connect. it will keep trying to connect but never will.

Authentication


That means you probably don't have the password or the Authentication Type set correctly.

For Windows XP below:
Click Start/Control Panel/Network Connections then Right Click on the Wireless Network Connection and select Properties. When the Properties window open click the Wireless Networks tab. Click on the SSID for your wireless network that you connect to and the Properties window will open. You can change the Authentication Type to match the type set in your wireless router and you can also change your password or Network Key to make sure you have it in correctly.

For Windows Vista below:

Click Start/Control Panel/Network and Sharing Center then look to the left of the open window and click Manage Wireless Networks. Find the SSID of the network that you connect to and double click it. When the window opens click the Security tab to change the Security Type (which is the Authentication), The Encryption Type and the Network Security Key (which is the password).

For Windows 7 below:
Click Start/Control Panel/Network and Internet/Network and Sharing Center then look to the left and select Manage Wireless Networks. Find the SSID of the network that you connect to and double click it. When the window opens click the Security tab to change the Security Type (which is the Authentication), The Encryption Type and the Network Security Key (which is the password).

Vostro 1520- keyboard stuck on randomly repeating keys after small liquid spill.. no liquid inside, only a few drops on keys and it won't type right. Tried USB keyboard but it won't override the...


short of replacing the keyboard, there is not much you can do. If not killer expensive, then you could at your own risk put isopropal alcohol inside the tray - move around and then turn upside down. this will be easier on the electronics and may dissolve the liquid depending on what it is. If the viscocity is too high, then it wont work but worth a try.

Computer prompts for user name and pass word, it was givin to me i dont know user name and pass word


You can try putting in Administrator and leave password field blank and see if it works, otherwise try one of the following:

- see this for XP http://support.microsoft.com/kb/321305
- or this for Vista/Win7 http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/What-to-do-if-you-forget-your-Windows-password
- or if anything else didn't work you can use third party software from Hiren's Boot CD to reset your login password http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download.html

Wireless keyboard


Try new batteries, try the reset buttons that should be on the keyboard and/or the base of the unit. From there you will have to use a wired keyboard and then set up your wireless when you are in windows. Thanks,

Volume control keys on MS comfort curve 2000 keybrd not working


Restart the HID Human Interface Service. To fix this problem yourself, follow these steps:

  1. Open Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in for Services.

In Windows Vista or Windows 7, click Start, type services.msc in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.

If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Continue.


In Windows XP, click Start, click Run, type services.msc in the Open box, and then click OK.

  1. In the list of services in the Details pane, double-click HID Human Interface Service, and then make sure that the Startup type is set to Automatic. Then if not running start.

Worked for me J
