Question about Gateway MX8711 Notebook

1 Answer

Up Arrow My up arrow seems to have a mind of it's own. It will start scrolling up to the top of any drop down lists and when typing an email or in Word it will jump up lines and continue my typing on the line above. I learned that if I hit the key enough it will temporarily stop but now the key won't work at all. I don't really care about that as much as the jumping about. Do I need a new keyboard or can I uninstall the keyboard driver and try a reinstall? I am out of warranty.

Please help me unblock my farmville on facebook


Hi Karen. You need to go into the settings for your Facebook account & unblock it. Look on the blue banner along the top of any Facebook page, & there will be some icons towards the right hand side; it should start with your profile picture, then your name; there should be 8 icons in total. The very last one is a bit like an arrow head pointing downwards. Click on this arrow & select settings from drop down list, on the page that opens, select blocking from menu towards the left of the page. This should open a page entitled "manage blocking" Scroll down to find section named "block apps" then either type in the app name or scroll through list of blocked apps. When you find Farmville, just click on the "unblock" option next to it. Then try to load the game & it should load for you now.
Hope this helps.
