    I figured it out, all you have to do if you have the KVM switch that I have which is:

    Brand: Cables Unlimited
    Model: SWB-9000

    You press twice fast [SCROLL LOCK] on your keyboard and the [UP] or [DOWN] arrow once.

    [SCROLL LOCK],[SCROLL LOCK],[UP]
    or
    [SCROLL LOCK],[SCROLL LOCK],[DOWN]

    I hope this helps anyone who has the same problem.

Doesn't your KVM switch have numbers? Make it easy on yourself and hold down SCROLL LOCK and hit the corresponding number to which the PC is connected to. When you hold down SCROLL LOCK, you'll hear a bunch of beeping sounds, hit the number and it'll switch to the PC of your choice.

I'd like to install a version of Linux on my laptop. I am a beginner; what ill fit me and how to install it?

For a beginner the best version of Linux for a laptop remains UBUNTU. But you can count on LINUX MINT and the latest version of it is called JULIA.
You can find UBUNTU here. And LINUX MINT here.
The BOTH can be installed via installation DVD and for both also you can TRY BEFORE INSTALL, meaning you can run the version of LINUX LIVE, taste and test it before you will install it on your hard drive.

MY LAPTOP IS DOING NOTHING BECAUSE MY C DRIVE IS FULL AND IT WONT LET ME DELETE ANYTHING.. IVE TRIED THE DISC CLEAN UP BUT I DONT GET ANY FREE SPACE, IVE BOUGHT AN EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE AND MY LAPTOP DOESNT...

If you don't care about your data and don't need to back anything up, you can reinstall windows straight from the disc you have. If you do care about your data, you'll have to hook up another drive. Unfortunately, it seems like your problems are beyond the point of just hooking up a drive and copying files.

I'll give you two parts. First, how to reinstall windows. Second, how to copy files. Once again, if you care about your data you should skip down to the second part now.

1. Put your windows cd into your drive and reboot. Your screen should pop up with a message that says "Press any key to boot to cd." If it does not, reboot again, and this time go to your Setup screen. This is usually done by pressing the "F2" key or "DEL" key initially upon booting. Once you are in your setup screen, you need to change the Boot order to go to CD before it goes to Hard Disk.

Once you've booted up to your cd, you will be run through a windows installer that will let you partition and reformat your computer to do a new installation of windows.

2. The best way to copy your files when your hard disk fails or you can't recognize drives is to run a live version of linux. Ubuntu is what I use. Don't be scared now! Linux is very user-friendly, graphical, and easy to navigate these days. You don't need to know any code to run it or use it. You will need to download Ubuntu Linux on another machine and burn the CD, as I assume your computer won't handle downloading and burning a cd image. Once you have your Ubuntu CD, all you do is reboot with it in your drive and choose to Try the live version of Ubuntu. This will not take up any hard drive space and it won't overwrite your files. Ubuntu will simply be running in your memory space and allow you to access your computer and external drive so you can backup your files.

Good luck!

I dont have an admin account

If you are using the computer, and there's only one user account, this is already the so-called administrator account. Windows Vista has patterned its security from Linux wherein you can not permanently logged on to the Session 0. You may add more administrators on your computer by going to User Accounts (found in Control Panel)

How do i update my firmware

It is pretty easy. If running Windows just download the Sansa Updater (see link below) and install it.

Then, use the Mac/Linux instructions (even if running windows!) to put the e260 into MSC mode- turn e260 on, switch e260 hold switch to on, press and hold the e260s LEFT button "<<" while you plug the USB cable into the e260.

For me (running Windows XP) the Sansa updater automatically detected the e260 then and updated the e260's firmware.

Links to the updater, and alternative complete instructions for Mac/Linux are here
