Disable num lock


Deskop or Laptop seems to be a contradiction >????

The num lock (number or numeric lock) can become annoying if you tend to accidentally hit the num lock key on your laptop and turn it on or off.
Disabling the num lock completely involves editing the system registry.
Before performing such edits, always save and back up your computer information in case you make a mistake, as the system registry controls many aspects of your computer's operation.
Once you have disabled the num lock on your laptop, you must edit the system registry again to re-enable that function.

Close all windows and programs that are running on your computer.
Press the "Windows" key and the "R" key simultaneously to open the "Run" dialog box.

Type "regedit" without the quotation marks, then press "Enter."
Click the "+" symbol next to HKEY_CURRENT_USER, then select the "+" symbol next to "Control Panel."
Click on "Keyboard."
Double-click "IntitialKeyboardIndicators."
Enter "0" (the number zero) in the "Value Data" field to disable the num lock after logon, or enter "1" (the number one) to disable the num lock entirely.
Click "OK," then close the registry by clicking the "X" in the upper right corner of the registry window.
Restart your computer.
To re-enable num lock, follow the same process, but change the "Value Data" to "2."

How to Avoid a Power Surge?


Recently my friend had a power surge happen on her laptop it was destroyed the power surge ended up cooking her motherboard. I would say and I think most would agree this is the most critical thing you can do to avoid a power outage that may damage your PC, Laptop or any other electrical component. <br /><br />Here is how I avoid this serious issue, first did you know that dust can conduct electricity? Not only does dust create a cooling barrier it can cause a fire inside of your computer. It is a good idea once a month to open up the case and blow out the computer. You can use canned air or a blower vacuum do this outside. <br /><br />There are settings that you can set to stop your computer from restarting after a power failure if these are not set the computer during a bumping surge which is on and off over and over again your machine will keep restarting during this time which can be a problem with shorting out components.<br /><br />To do this using Win XP simply right click on My Computer then Select Properties. Go to Advanced see in the graphic below where it says Automatically Restart un-check that. This way when a power failure happens the computer will not restart. <br /><br /><img src="jcrowder0027.jpg" /> <br /><br />I think you get the idea here. Although computers are less expensive these days, you still do not want to have to face a major repair due to a power failure. If you are using a laptop run it with the battery only during the rain and storm like conditions. Thanks for reading my articles and using FixYa!<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">John A.

I cannot shut down or restart my PC using the start menu prompts. The only way to shut her down is a hard shut down (manually turn her off).


There is a program that is failing to shut down in general, which is delaying the computers ability to shut down.
The next time you shut down, make sure you have no programs open. Then, while attempting to shut down, wait until Windows pops up window asking you to close a non-responsive program. When it does, take note of the program that it mentions, then close it and see if Windows shuts down. Note: sometimes this takes a really long time.
Try re-installing the non-responsive program and see if your computer can shut down normally again.

CD drive trying to play CD when drive is empty


Apparently your laptop still thinks there is a cd to play. Be sure you closed down all your programs. I am assuming that you already logged off and shut your computer down and restarted. It could be something as simple as your sensor that detects the cd being in place and just a little dust. Use some clean compressed air that comes in a can and can be bought like at Radio Shack or electronic supply house. Put the nozzle on and blow out any dust that may be in there. Power down and then restart your computer. That should take care of your problem.

HP LAPTOP PROBLEM


Hi there

As knotbeerdan says you may need to repair Windows.

If the laptop is Windows XP, find a Windows XP system disk (the restore disk it came with or any system disk.

Put it in the CD drive and start the laptop.

When it gives you the option, type in R to repair Windows.

It may come to C: prompt.

Type in "chkdsk". This should check the hard drive for errors.

After this restart the laptop. Hopefully Windows will run properly again

Windows explorer has stopped working


It is possible that the application you installed in your computer is not compatible with Windows Vista. You can try to repair it using the recovery console.

1. Restart your computer.

2. As soon you have the HP logo came up. keep on tapping F8 on and off to go to the advance boot option.

3. Select the option ' Repair my Computer" . Follow the instruction.

4. Select startup repair. It will ask you to click finish when the repair is done. The system will restart itself.

Keep me posted.

Thanks.

Gateway laptop problem has been detected and Windows keep shuting down to prevent damage to computer. What shall I do? Norton has currently been added.


start your computer in safe mode.

Click start, run, type 'msconfig' in the box without the commas and click 'OK'

a system configuration utility window pops open. Click on the tab at the top in the middle that says 'boot.ini' and put a mark by safeboot. Drop down and click apply, move left and click close. Restart the computer, you will come up in safemode. If you dont get the same problem, is probably norton, norton wont start in safemode unless its the corporate edition.

to get back to regular mode, click start again, click on run, type msconfig and click ok. The system configuration utility window pops back open. Click the boot.ini tab and unmark safeboot. Drop down and click apply, move left and click close. Restart the computer. It will come back up in regular mode.

a work around if it is norton would be to remove norton and try AVG antivirus, is free

it problem persists, then it wasnt norton. Norton needs quite a bit of memory to run. If you dont have at least 512 mb in your system (more if your video card uses part of it), then you going to have problems.

Otherwise, go to start, run, msconfig, startup, disable all, apply, ok and he restart the computer.
It will block some programs that may interfere with ur Wireless Internet Access.
