The keyboard on my HP Pavilion g6 is locked. It was working and then my cat ran across the keyboard and must have hit a key that locked it. The mouse pad works. No cap lock or number lock on. I have already tryed:
1) going in control panel and unchecking everything in make keyboard easier to use.
I am just entering some numerial data and found out that there is no num lock key on the new designed keyboard. There is also no description about this in the manual. Do I need to set something to use?
I have an inspiron 9400 that has been having some issues lately. As of right now, when I push the power button, the power light comes on but it does not boot or even post. The Num lock stays on and the caps lock and scroll lock lights blink for about 40 seconds then the whole thing shuts off. what those blinking lights mean. I have search dell support but have found nothing.
if i turn the pc off, when i turn back on, no boot up, no chance to press f2 f12 f8 nothing. the only thing that happens is the disk read light stays on, and the caps lock and looks like system lock lights keep flashing. the system will then eventually power off. i removed the battery (the laptop was always plugged into power) and it started. i then placed the battery back and it started normally.
I Have an Inspiron 1520, 2gb ram, 8400M GSI installed a webcam driver and tried to reboot.Num-lock Scroll-Lock Caps-Lock on not flashing. No beeps. No dell logo. After 5 secs, it restarts. I don't have a battery. The power indicator is on. My AC adapter light is also on.What I've tried so far:Removed both 512 ram 1 at a time and still the same results. Tried other ram.Unplugged and plugged back in the CMOS battery.The battery works on another laptop. Removed WLan card.
I have a G500 laptop. When it boots up, I would like the Num Lock to automatically be turned on. I can't see anything in the BIOS that would do that. Any other places I should be looking? Any other way to keep it turned on?
My laptop won't boot. I press the power button, the power button lights and I hear the system fan run. Then it shuts off and the caps lock LED flashed about 20 times, then turns off if under battery power. If on AC power then the LED stays steady after flashing. Screen never turns on. Late yesterday and late today the computer started hanging. Usually a restart would fix it for a short while. But now it's dead dead. I suspected overheating so I did a bit of digging and figured out how to remove and clean the fan intake. It's was clogged up pretty good, but that hasn't fixed the problem and the laptop is now cool to touch on the bottom..
I have a HP Pavilion dv7-4065dx laptop with Windows 7 64 bit that will not boot up or go to the Bios screen. When the laptop is turned on, you hear the system fan start, power button light comes on, and the caps lock button starts to continually blink once every three to four seconds. The HDD activity light is also on but is solid red with no blinking. No changes have been made to the laptop and it was working perfectly fine just a few hours earlier. I have attempted the hard reset of the computer and reseating of the memory cards, but the laptop still would not boot.
I have been having trouble with my Dell Laptop recently. I have a dell inspiron 6400 and when i try to power it on it wont turn on. When I press the power button , the num lock and caps lock LED'S begin to flash for a few seconds before going off.
Most of the time the laptop will not boot up and I get the single blinking LED on Caps Lock and Num Loc. However, if I am persistent and keep trying the start button it will boot up. After it boots up every thing works fine. I can even do a restart and it will stop and boot back up. But if I do a shutdown then I will have to push the start button several times (it will come up with the single blinking LED on Caps Lock and Num Loc) before it will boot up again.
Recently, I turned on the on screen indicators for caps and num lock by accident when trying to get the pop-up window to stop opening every time I hit one of the buttons. Now I don't know how to disable it, and it's a pain while playing games.
Solutions tried: Going to preference, there is no "On-Screen Display Tab" Going to run the regedit.
How do I move the active app on the screen with some keyboard shortcuts?
I really need some application that will move my windows where I want right away, resizing them at the same time.
My specific scenario is: I use an external 27" LCD with the MBP; I keep connecting and disconnecting the laptop over a day at work several time.
The problem is: I set up a window to be "that big" and to be on "that" part of the display, I set up other windows next to the first one (usually all documents, need to compare them side by side) and it looks and works fine on the big screen, but when I disconnect they are not keeping the side-by-side position (smaller of course, to fit on the 15" MBP display).
My wish: to press something like Ctrl+1 to move the active window to position 1,1 on the screen, with the windows size of 960 & 600; Ctrl+2 to move the active window to position 961, 1, with the size of 960x600. This way I would get the 2 windows side by side really easy.
I found several apps doing this(and much more) for Finder, but nothing for any window of any application that runs on Mac ...
I have no idea how hard is to code this on a Mac, fairly new with Macs; but I am ready to purchase a small utility that will accomplish those tasks ..
I'm getting a strange problem on my dv6500t with my dual booted Windows 7 RC install (same issue with the Beta). My searches have been inconclusive.
Using W7 as one user is fine, but if I leave one user logged in and switch user accounts, things start acting wierd...Anti-virus fails to start (I've uninstalled AV and the rest still occur)Can't use the IE button on the task barIE doesn't log in to some websites (e.g. AOL mail)slowness Lots of permanent window and menu artifact ghosting that only clears after logging out This only happens when 2 users are logged in at one time... one user works just dandy.
I'm just suspicious of my HP... the friggen thing crashes on me enough or doesn't resume from hibernate/sleep so I'm not confident in the crap.
I was trying to find the Active Protection System software for Win8 for while now, it's just not coming up anywhere. I really need to disable the disc freezing feature on my V570 cause it's super annoying (especially when watching videos).
Whether the software is available? I've tried the Win7 version, but there are some compatibility issues, so it doesn't work....
Also, if the software is not available yet for Win8, are there other ways of turning this thing off (BIOS, registry)???
On my Windows 7, APS works well with an icon on the system tray. But in Ubuntu (13.04), because of no driver, I dont know if APS works or not. The question is: does it still work silently without the driver on Ubuntu?If APS doesn't work, is my laptop harmed when it's shaken? Does Lenovo have any solution to get ASP worked on Linux (Ubuntu)?
Until recently my Aspire M3802 desktop started immediately when the start button was pressed. For about a week it's been taking an increasing number of minutes before the the LED turns blue; today it was over ten. What is the likely problem? If accumulated dust how can I remove it? If not dust, what can I do?
