    Solution #1, Go to RUN type in 'msconfig'.
    In startup uncheck MotiveSB.
    Try to reinstall the keyboard driver.
    Solution #2
      Sounds like it may also be dirt or some spilled soda.
    -- Had the same problem after an OJ spill. --
    If you feel comfortable about removing the keyboard, disconnect all the wires and cables, then give the keyboard a thorough washing. Then let it dry overnight.
    If that doesn't sound like something you want to attempt, then you will have to take it in to a computer shop.

How can I print out my account address information to send an email to my car insurance company


Rather than printing & scanning to attach a document to an email, you can just do a screen print. To do this, pull up the portion of the page you need and hold down the "Alt" key AND hit the "Prt Scr" key. (It wont look like anything has happened). Now go into your email - Make sure your cursor is in the text area - right click your mouse & choose paste from the dropdown menu that will appear. If you need to capture a larger portion of the page; hold down the "Ctrl" key and tap the minus sign to get more content on the screen print. if you need larger print - hold down the "Ctrl" key and tap the plus sign. Whatever you see on the screen is what will be captured and pasted into your email. This includes all the tabs on the top with any websites you have open and the bottom tool bar where your icons, etc sit

Special documents that are very private that have to be emaiked to London but other info with those documents do not need to be included


What is your question..? as this is very vague.. If you wish to email private or sensitive documents, I would suggest encrypting them using Windows inbuilt encryption system or visit one of the many download sites and search for file encryption. download and install your choice and then send the decryption key or keys via a different email or fax etc.. You can also use the built in encryption in most file compression software and make the file self decrypting and decompressing with the correct passcode which you define and which you can send to the recipient by some other means or a different email.

The sole function of this key is to take a snapshot or picture of your computer screen and copy it to the clipboard (the clipboard is an invisible holding area for content that is copied). Its the same thing as if you copied something from a document and it is now on your clipboard waiting to be pasted in its final destination. Its that simple. As quoted by Webopedia...
Often abbreviated Prt Scr, the Print Screen key is a useful key supported on most PCs. In DOS, pressing the Print Screen key causes the computer to send whatever images and text are currently on the display screen to the printer. Some graphics programs and Windows, use the Print Screen key to obtain Screen Captures.
Now, how do you get to see those Screen Captures or maybe even send them to someone? The quickest and most effective method is to have a graphics editing program handy. If that is not an option, you can open your favorite word processing program and create a new document. Position your cursor at the beginning of the document or wherever you want the screenshot to appear.
Using your keyboard, press Ctrl + V which will Paste the screenshot in your open document. Now you can Save (Ctrl + S) the document to wherever you wish, make sure to name it appropriately so you can easily find it.
You can now send this file to anyone via email, use it in a presentation, create your own little book of screenshots showing how to perform a specific task, etc. The possibilities are endless.
We use the Windows Print Screen Key regularly. You probably will too once you get the hang of it!

Thanks and Good Luck.

Most programmes utilise keyboard shortcuts.
It says which key combinations will perform which command next to the options on the drop down menus when you click on file, edit, view, etc.
These shortcuts usually a letter key in combination with ctrl key, alt key , sometimes ctrl+shift.
Possibly you are pressing the ctrl key at same time when you press the shift key?

Hi,
The solution is simple but very many people don't know how to do it.
Basically it's like a zoom function on a web page.

If you hold down the Ctrl key and then use the + and - keys to zoom in and out on a web page. - denotes zoom out and + denotes zoom in.


Regards.

Keyboard


No keys on my keyboard work. Cause: This issue is often caused by either a bad keyboard, bad interface board, and/or bad motherboard.
Answer: Disconnect the keyboard from the computer and connect another known working keyboard to it. If this is a PS/2 keyboard and connecting multiple keyboards or a known working keyboard to the computer PS/2 port does not work unfortunately it's likely that the PS/2 port is bad. Because this port is part of the motherboard this will require that you replace the motherboard. Alternatively if replacing the motherboard is too costly or not an effective solution you could also consider using a USB keyboard if USB ports are available on the computer.

Not all keys on keyboard work.

Reference number: CH000305
Not all keys on keyboard work. Issue: Not all keys on keyboard work.
Cause: This issue is often caused by a bad keyboard or software preventing these keys to be pressed.
Additional information: This document contains information about troubleshooting a keyboard that has some functioning keys. If no key on the keyboard is working see document CH000955.
Solution: Verify that the key is not working in more than one application. It is possible that some keys may not be used in all programs. This generally always applies to the Function keys F1 through F12. If not all keys are working in all programs and you have Windows, attempt to boot the computer to a MS-DOS prompt or safe mode and test the keyboard in DOS. Information about getting into safe mode can be found on document CHSFAFE and information on how to boot to DOS can be found on document CHDOS. If it appears that a substance has been spilt into the computer, please review document CH000303. If all above suggestions have been completed or if you are not running Windows, it is likely that the keyboard and/or keys are bad and it is recommended that the keyboard be replaced with a new one.

Read and follow instructions, Please dont for get to Vote/Thank You.
