Sounds like the shift key is broken on the keyboard.
Try plugging in a different keyboard into the PC and see if it does the same thing.
If it works like it is supposed to just replace the keyboard.

    Was the computer off when you swapped out the keyboard?

Verify that the keyboard is connected properly to the computer by turning off your computer and then disconnecting and reconnecting the keyboard to the computer. Stuck key Ensure that there are no stuck keys on the keyboard. If all keys appear to be ok and you have a standard desktop computer with keyboard, turn the keyboard over and gently hit the back of the keyboard to loosen any dirt or hair that may be stuck in the keyboard. Bad keyboard Try another keyboard on the computer to verify that the keyboard has not gone bad. Bad PS/2 or AT port If all of the above solutions are not able to resolve your issue it is likely that the port on the back of the computer may be bad and the motherboard or I/O board may need to be replaced.

I have a problem trying to turn on windows defender on my pc.. i try a few diferent ways but no luck.. can someone help with a solution that works for sure yhank s


At the startup of Windows XP, you may see an error that says "Unable to Start Windows Defender service". This issue occurs, if some of the registry entries are corrupted. Restarting the service from the service console may also prompt the same error.

To resolve this issue, you may need to uninstall and reinstall the Windows Defender. Follow the below mentioned steps:

1. Click Start, Control Panel.
2. Click Add or Remove Programs.
3. Click Windows Defender, and click Remove.

This will uninstall Windows Defender. You can download and reinstall the updated version from the following link:

The keyboard on our laptop wont work


try blowing out all of the dust from your laptop keyboard using a fine air blower from an air compressor making VERY sure there is no MOISTURE in the lines.
dust causes static which causes lots of problems with a computer and its parts
or if this does not fix the problem
click start control panel keyboard you can change your settings there
or you might have uninstall the keyboard restart your computer then reinstall it and its drivers
click start control panel keyboard hardware then properties you should see driver details,update driver,roll back driver,uninstall
make sure you have the driver for the keyboard before uninstalling the driver
make sure the lead is good and has a secure connection diconnect the keyboard then reconnect it then reinstall the driver

If you insert your windows or recovery disc in the PC and boot from it you should be able to access the windows re installation before the malware can initiate. The PC will ask you to press any key if you want to boot from the CD. Once there you can delete all the information on the hard drive and do a fresh install. This will restore the computer to factory settings but will remove any viruses or malware.

I brought home a computer from work that was on a T1 line and found the internet just fine. Now at home the hp7800 cannot find the internet. I have Roadrunner service at home.


Going to assume its running XP. Go into device manager. Start>settings>control pane>system>hardware>device manager.
Uninstall the local eithernet card and reboot. Xp should reinstall the card once again when its done rebooting. All settings at this point should be at defaults and should have a differnt hive in the regestry as well as a new name. (Local area connection 1 will say 2 or 3 now. ). Try then. If not call your ISP (Roadrunner)
