How to use an extra keyboard

I bought an external keyboard from a friend of mine, who used it with her desktop computer (windows xp model).
Now my computer is acer aspire 3680.
I connected those two, but nothing happened. The keyboard didn't come with any cd rom, so no driver for it with me. (I don't even know if the problem is I don't have a driver for it.)
Could someone help me?

    Thank you for your help!
    I have a converter from ps2 to USB and I'm using it. So no problem for that.
    The keyboard has the mark of microsoft on it.
    FCC ID: E5XKB5137
    Model No.: 5137
    I don't know if these info. are helpful.

    I just got an extra keyboard from a friend. It's Compaq FCC ID No.E5XKB5137; Model No. 5137. I was told it can go with my DELL Computer. It doesn't work after rebooting. Do I need a driver for this?

    Most keyboards should work out of the box. But note that most laptops nowadays don't have PS/2 ports. So this keyboard can probably only be connected when it's a USB one.

    When you connect it to a USB port it should work. What kind of keyboard is it?

How do I get my cap lock key unstuck on windows 7 computer

Cap lock key is not supposed to get stuck in any version of Windows. If your keyboard's cap lock is not woking, problem is not in Windows 7 but with your keyboard. You are not specifying if you hav a desktop computer or a laptop. If it's a desktop, go to any computer stpre and get a new keyboard. If your problem is with a laptop's keyboard and you don't know how to service them (most surely, you don't), it might not be a good idea to open your laptop and change the keyboard. A friend of mine tried to do this and he simply couldn't connect the keyboard. and finally he had to take it to service. So you should ask professional help to do this work.

Hallo, I have a LaCie Grand 1 TP external harddrive. I cant work in mine hard drive. I cant throw anything away i cant rename documents or put new ones on it. Some background info A few months...

you may face this issue because of differences between mac and windows file systems/partition table and security attributes that may disallow any further changes.

1-try to connect you HDD to a windows Computer and Backup all your files before loses any data(use more newer version of windows like windows 10 build 1709 windows XP is old/out of services and has many problems)
2-after a full backup in windows try to connect your HDD to your mac and format it via your MacBook
3- after formatting your HDD try to reconnect your HDD to windows and copy your files to HDD(windows has a compatible file systems that could read/allow/write mac file systems/partition and its attributes)

How to use the function (Fn) keys on the keyboard - ThinkPad T40, T40p, T41, T41p, T42, T42p, T43, T43p

Switching the display output location.
Switch between the computer display and an external monitor. If an external monitor is attached, the computer output is displayed in the following three patterns by turns:
  • External monitor (CRT display)
  • Computer display and external monitor (LCD + CRT display)
  • Computer display (LCD)
  • For any operating system other than Windows 2000 or Windows XP, no additional procedure is needed. Just press Fn+F7.
  • This function is not supported if different desktop images are displayed on the computer display and the external monitor (the Extend desktop function).
  • This function does not work while a DVD movie or a video clip is playing.
To enable this function in Windows 2000 and Windows XP, the following procedure is needed:
  1. When you log on to Windows 2000 and Windows XP for the first time, press Fn + F7 and select a display-switching function in the Initial setup window. Since in Windows 2000 and Windows XP multiple users can log on to a single operating system by using different user IDs, each user needs to select the function in the initial setup window when logging on for the first time.
  2. If the Fn + F7 key combination have been assigned to a presentation scheme function, start Presentation Director, and change the settings.

The keyboard needs to be replaced or you can plug a full size desktop keyboard into the keyboard jack on your laptop. If you are looking a keyboard, search ebay for a "buy it Now" deal.
