Probably a mechanical problem with your keyboard. Try connecting an external keyboard to see if the problem is corrected. If that works, you will probably need to get hold of a different keyboard for your laptop.

I have a hp dv5000 multimedia notebook. Till yesterday, everything was working fine, but this morning before starting up the comp, I cleaned the keppad witha soft brush and then switched on the power...

Remove the power chord. Remove the battery. Remove all the external peripherals. Press and hold the power button for 15 seconds. Put the battery back in. Turn on the laptop.
It should work fine now.

if not turn the laptop upside down then slap it lightly 3-4 times
this will then surely fix the problem and if not then take it to the service center.

Unable to open yahoo mails after login

Try to clear your cache or cookies and then flush your dns by opening a command prompt and typing: ipconfig /flushdns

Chances are, your connection hardly communicate with yahoo's mail servers and vice versa.

Also, try to use a different browser. Like if you currently using Firefox, try opening yahoo mail wit IE, or vice versa.

Keyboard and boot issue due to keyboard

From the sound of things, your keyboard is garbage. You may wish to try a different keyboard. If it still causes a problem, try a different type (if you're using the PS/2 jack, try USB, and vice versa).

I have bought nero 7 and although I have followed directions, I am still unable to load it onto my computer.It keeps informing me that the serial number is wrong. Where am I going wrong?

Are you using the "-" key between each characters or typing it in a a whole, could be an issue. Also uising Capital Letters can affect code also. Try and keep the same as what you see. Also make sure your not typing in zeros where the letter o is or vice-versa. Also Install without serial number if you can, and when it completes go into nero and change license to your key. I bought online and downloaded it with the demo license provided and then afterwards change it.

Help with frozen lense

the lens is stuck out because there is incorrect battery connection. there is an option on the camera setting for the battery type. try this one:
-turn the camera on
-click on Menu button
-select options using left/right, up/down button
-select Set up 2
-Select Battery type
-Select Alkaline for non-rechargable
or Ni-MH for rechargable
-click OK button

this setting should be done when using camera for the first time and whenever you are switching battery types, from rechargable to non-rechargable and vice versa.
