You will find the @ key is the" key instead because you have the keyboard set at US, go to control panel>regional and language options and change to english.

I have a desktop with an amer megatrend bios.I want to get a new bios that works with win 8.1 and needs to have support for PAE,NX.and SSE2


It's best to simply replace the entire Mother Board than try to replace the BIOS. Replacing a Mother Board vs replacing a BIOS is way easier.

Your current BIOS MIGHT work if you can find a flash file for it, but you have to be careful. If the BIOS your flashing isn't in production it's usually only PATCH flash file, to fix a problem with a BIOS, not upgrade it. And if you use the wrong flash file, it will TRASH your BIOS!

The BIOS, which is a chip, is usually micro-soldered to the Mother Board with high precision, by a robotic arm, and not easily removed or duplicated. The exception is if you happen to have a BIOS chip, that can be replaced, in a socket, but this is unusual instead of common.

The best source for BIOS info such as you are looking for is the American Megatrends Website itself at: AMI American Megatrends Inc Aptio (compatible with Windows 8) however their website is for the Mother Board manufacturer so you can't buy the BIOS as a consumer, but through a reseller, AMI Office, Authorized Representatives, etc (AMI American Megatrends Inc How to Buy).

You can however, buy a replacement Mother Board with a BIOS already installed on it (that's the way you usually buy them - with the BIOS pre-installed on the Mother Board) that's PAE, NX, and SSE2 and whatever else you want compatible. A great website to find computer parts and kits, new, refurbished, out of box, etc is the Tiger Direct Website at: TigerDirect com Electronics Tablets Phones Office Supplies Video Games. Just search for BIOS to find your specs, then check the bottom for possible best Mother Board kits to replace the one you have now. Hope this helps. :-)

Probook 4310s print screen alternative button on american keyboard


If your HP laptop is a wide screen with a full size keyboard and separate numbet keypad then the Prt Scr key also doubles up as the Home key it is located on the top row of keys on the Number keypad.
If your HP laptop is a standard laptop keyboard then the Prt Scr key also doubles as the Scroll key and it is next to the F12 key.

The anti theft isn't recognizing my key, and will not allow my 2003 CTS to start. What could possibly be wrong?


This comes from personal experience on my Mother's '03 Impala. Apparently the chip in the key died. Tried the spare key that came with the car and it all works again. If this solves your problem (as it did mine) just go to your dealership and have a new key cut.

Amlio laptop keeps showing problem with current power plan


Unfortunately, you will have to purchase another battery to rule out "bad battery" or any other problem. Try buying one from ebay, you'll get it cheaper there.

good luck

Speedstream 6300 network key



Wireless security is commonly performed by encryption using wep setting a network key. That key is to be shared by both the router and the network card to allow encrypted communications. If appears you have not provided the network key that was configured into wireless router to the wireless adapter card to allow them to exchange encrypted communications. The preferable solution would be to get the active network from the router and provide in to the wireless adapter in the prompt / request you were presented. This will protect you wireless network from access by those you have not shared the key with.
