When I try to type the star symbol the computer goes to mute state instead,when I again try to type the star symbol the comes out of mute state.I want to change the keyboard shortcut so that I can type the...

Sounds like your keyboard drive is not set right. Do you have a special keyboard with programmable functions? Try changing your keyboard driver. Google your keyboard model + drivers and see if one comes up you can download. Then replace current driver and see if that resolves your issue. It's not a laptop is it? If so, that's another matter.

My fan is noisy. Where can I buy part with inst. instructions


Depends on which fan you are referring to, the case fan or the CPU heatsink and fan? Either can be purchased from a reputable computer centre or online.

Make sure you tell them the make and model to ensure they give you the right one!

My IBM 8183 automatically turn off while i turning it on!!

this is standard on most IBMs, when they are setup in the bios to not turn on after powerloss. you must wait for the on, then off to occur, then you can turn it on. The fan in the computer is probably loose, or possibly old, if not its normal.
