Hi,
you might want to try quality batteries. When you replace the batteries let the keyboard set with no batteries for e.g. 5 minutes so that it "registers" that the batteries have been replaced. Maby disable the onscreen message and just use the keyboard untill it stops working :-)
Regards.

no Monitor stated. (maker, CRT, LCD what?)
The monitor is not fibbing to you BTW, the PC did go dead or to sleep. seems its monitor monitor of some kind with DVI.

if the monitor works on other PCs then the monitor is not bad.
i Bet it works (old ones 2002, have a hidden deep internal sleep mode. and is not yours IM sure now) DVI IS THE ONLY CLUE THERE.
So PC is dead. this PC came with only VISTA new,

turn off all sleep modes and all hibernate modes
the turn off screen savers, if turned on , disktop . RC right click

I have a wireless HP Keyboard/mouse. (SPS # 481019-001. The receiver (usb) # is 481021-001. My problem is that the keyboard works great and the mouse does not work at all. I have no idea why. I put new...


From the manufacturer's web-site:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=3807046&lc=en

the specifications state:

•Energy efficient : Conserve energy with PC sleep button. Monitor battery level with convenient on screen battery level indicator. Long battery life (keyboard - 12 months typical, mouse - 4 months typical).

So, the mouse _DOES_ need a new battery. Take it to a computer-store, to get them to sell you a new battery, after showing you how to remove the old battery.

Make sure your cooling fan isnt coming on after the car has been parked up for a few hours, this will flatten your battery. Yeh.

check the batteries; they might be low. also, if your keyboard uses a sensor, make sure nothing is obstructing the view.

Laptop Mousepad and Keyboard stuttering, slow


This may be a battery power monitor issue. Try disabling the "Mircosoft ACPI- Compliant Control Method Battery" device. This is located in Control Panel-->System-->Hardware Tab-->Device Manager-->Batteries. Had similar problem with 2 Acer Aspire series laptops (diff models). 2 and 3 year old. Original batteries (both still hold charges for 1.5 hrs of normal usage). Running WinXP, one with SP2 and other had SP3. Both came in the last month with slow jerky TPAD function and nearly non responsive keyboard access. Checked the usual; virus, spyware, hijacking, driver conflict etc. Cloned drive and factory installed..still same problem with kb & mouse. However an external USB keyboard and mouse functioned normally (no lag). Noticed with Battery removed kb & mouse was normal. Finally found disabling ACPI control battery device resolved this issue while allowing laptop to run on either battery or AC.

Charging new phone


it wont harm your phone they just recomend 24 hours to make sure the bat is ok and that it gets fully charged but remember to let your bat go totally flat from time to time this will prolong the life of your battery as it does them no good just keep topping it up so i sugest to let it go totally flat say once a month this will keep your battery lasting longer between charge hope this helps
