Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

This has me baffled. The key 'r' works 100% of the time but if i type 'e' or 'd' then the r will not work, so i have to hit say the space key then back then the r will work. Also the letter 'b' opens another tab (in firefox) this is so frustrating, if i am in say MS Word and i type a 'b' then it open Help and Support. I am using Windows 7 Ultimate. Any suggestions will be welcome, thanks in advance.

This sounds like a physical keyboard fault. If your machine is in warranty, get the manufacturer to replace it. If not, see if you can get a local service company to fix it if you are not confident of doing it yourself.

Tracfone's instructions for how to text do not work! what's up?


Texting on this model a bit tricky. First pull up name & number of person you want to text to, if it is in your phone. Then hit short dash line under the word 'options'. Make sure #1, 'create message' is highlighted. Hit ok button. Now type message. If you want a 'v', for example, you have to hit the #8 button 3x quickly. If you make a mistake, hit 'clr' button on top right to clear it & retype. So, for example, you want to send the word 'please'. You would have to hit the #7 button once, wit a second for the curser on screen to move to next space, then hit the # 5 button 3x quickly to get to the 'l', wait for curser, then hit #3 button 2x quickly to get to the 'e', etc. You get the drift. This model is not very conducive to sending longer texts. It's too time consuming & annoying. But short ones are ok if you have the patience. IF you need a space in between words, hit the '0' button once (that's zero, not 'o'). This is where text code comes in handy for shortening words, such as "LOL" for laughing out loud, etc.

Once you are through typing note & want to send it, just hit ok button to send. It may take a bit of time for message to go through. If you type a lot, it may take up more than 1 page, if this happens, the phone will ask you 'message is 3 pages, do you want to send now', or something like that. The longer the message is, the longer it will take to send.

One thing to keep in mind, before you start typing, make sure you hit the bottom lower key that has the asterisk & up arrow on it 3x quickly, or else when you type, it will be all garbley goop. If you want a capital letter, you also have to hit that same key once before you hit letter key. It only works for one letter at a time, so if you need to do more than one, say you want to type "DVD", you have to hit asterisk key once, then #3 button for 'D', then asterisk key again, then #8 button 3x for "V', etc. If you need a symbol or punctuation, use the bottom right hand key that has the # sign on it. Hit it once & some symbols come up, you will have to move over to the one you want by using outlined area around the 'ok' button. Once you get to symbol you want, hit 'ok' button it will add that symbol or punctuation to your text & return you to your text area.

If you do not see the symbol or punctuation you want, hit small dash under the word 'next' & it will take you to the next page. I think there are 7 pages of these different symbols & punctuation.

Hope all that helps. Email me at: ldgtreke4@aol.com, if you have any other questions. Put short note in subject box so I know what this is about. Good luck!

Problem with spacebar key


I don't quite understand why this would happen after pluggin in a USB mouse - but I've seen it numerous times after a liquid has been spilled on a keyboard.

Sounds like you need to replace the keyboard. Best way to test this is to plug in an external usb keyboard and see if you can type normally on it.

If the laptop keyboard exhibits this behavior, and the external keyboard doesn't - you should replace the laptop keyboard.

How to reset bios password


restart your computer repeatedly tapping the f8 key to enter safe mode while the screen is black once in safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you to attempt to repair your computer

Reboot the computer As the computer is booting repeatadly press the F8 key as the computer is booting


If done properly the user should get to a screen similar to the below screen.

Select the option for Safe mode command prompt only

Windows Advanced Options Menu
Please select an option:

Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt

Enable Boot Logging
Enable VGA mode
Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows domain controllers only)
Debugging Mode

Start Windows Normally
Reboot
Return to OS Choices Menu


Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice.


select safe mode with command prompt


Then type at the C:\> prompt: type

DEBUG

and hit Enter. You'll see a dash (-) at the DEBUG prompt. Now type:

o 70 2e

which will show as -o 70 2e at the DEBUG prompt. Hit Enter. Then type:

o 71 ff

and hit Enter. Finally type:

Q

and hit Enter one last time to quit DEBUG back to the C:\> prompt.
Now you're ready to reboot your PC, and press the appropriate key or key
combo (look it up in your motherboard manual if you don't know it) to access
your BIOS Setup.


Youll notice the password is gone.


if this fails try typing


At command prompt type debug
you will get a - prompt where you can type the following (<enter> means press enter, not type enter*)

A <ENTER>
MOV AX,0 <ENTER>
MOV AX,CX <ENTER>
OUT 70,AL <ENTER>
MOV AX,0 <ENTER>
OUT 71,AL <ENTER>
INC CX <ENTER>
CMP CX,100 <ENTER>
JB 103 <ENTER>
INT 20 <ENTER>
<ENTER> just hit enter on this line
G <ENTER>
Q <ENTER>

Basic BIOS password crack - works 9.9 times out of ten

if still no joy

Remember that laptops can be trickier, especially if it's a newer model.

If it has a security chip on the motherboard forget about it.


You either have to physically remove the chip or contact the mfg for the "master" password. If you can boot up off of a cd or floppy try any of these methods:



Create a Win98SE bootable media "or anything that lets you boot into MS-DOS" and boot off of it.


When the A:\> prompt appears type debug and press enter.


You will then only see a "-".


Type o 70 2E "include the spaces" and press Enter.


Type o 71 ff "include the spaces" and press Enter.


Type q and press Enter.


hope this helps

I got an really old typewriter for my birthday last week and yesterday i deceided to type a letter to a friend on it. When i was testing out stuff, tabs and things like that, my space was stuck. After...


Your typewriter may just need some lubrication. using a 3 in 1 house hold oil, add a few drops to each letter arm at the bottom where it connects.If possible,use a compressed air source to blow out the entire unit (wear saftey glasses of course), the lubricate the moving key areas. This is the best case fix, worst case would be parts need replacement.

If it skips at the same place or skips every 10 or 12 spaces all the time it is a broken tooth on the escapement wheel or rack. It could be in typing you are lingering on the key causing it to spring back a little ans space over.

T9 texting numbers


From "Best Solution".........(quote) "alright type the word that you want (ie.Hey) it will show up as 439. then go through the words until you find "Hey" then hit space twice and do it over again. after a couple times it should pop up as "hey" first instead of 439."......My Comment would be that this absolutely works!!!! YEAH!!! I've had this problem for so very long and no one at the AT&T store could help.....but.....the longer you've had the problem the more times you have to type and change the word. My phone was selecting 843 for the word "the"....it had been going on for months....so, it took about about 60 times typing and changing and spacing before "the" came up as the first choice word
