Preferred Solution: AOE Unable to type cheat codes in

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

In the options on the game is there an option for key binding or changing keys for different actions? cos it might have been reassigned.

Dear knowledgeable techsupport person,

I don't know how to enter in cheats for my games. It tells me to use Excel, but I don't have that.
Example: starfleet command II says in order to give yourself more prestige points you need to go to "assets\specs\sfbspc13txt" in the main directory of the game using Excel.
How do I view these files?
I have a 600is e-tower celeron.
 

A:Using cheat codes

You know the path to the file they want you to open. Have you checked to make sure the file is there?

So go open Microsoft Excel.
Hit File-Open.
At the bottom of the File-Open dialog box, change the "Files of Type" to Text files (*.prn,*.txt,*.csv).
Now browse to, or type in, the path to that file and the file name.
Hit Enter.
It should give you what is called the "Text Import Wizard".
I don't think I'd be too concerned at this point unless it gives you explicit instructions to follow, just hit Next until you see the FINISH button become available (this could actually be right away), and then hit Finish.

If you can't figure it out, send the instructions and the file to [email protected] I'll see what I can do for you. I have no idea what game you're talking about tho.

Hello,
My brother has a dell laptop:
Dell Inspiron n3040
HDD 320 GB
Processor i5
512 VGA

When he tries to type an alt code, Windows can't do it.
For example: Alt + 0158 (?)
When he presses Alt and then presses the numbers keys at the top of the keyboard, he hears sound coming from Windows and just doesn't type in the alt code.
Is there an alternative way for that?

Thanks

A:Can't type Alt codes Help!

My inspiron 1545 keyboard layout has the same "problem" : no numkey,no additional numpad.
As a workaround one can use:
>the  "character map" => click START button,type charmap,press ENTER and choose from the table
or
>download "autohotkey.exe" - install it
 http://www.autohotkey.com/
 after installing right click on the desktop - choose "New" from the menu and create a new "Autohotkey script"
 Right click the new (almost)empty script choose EDIT script and add the following lines at the very end.
0::numpad0
1::numpad1
2::numpad2
3::numpad3
4::numpad4
5::numpad5
6::numpad6
7::numpad7
8::numpad8
9::numpad9
save the file,double click the file and try it........
Note:While the script is running you don't have access to the signs above the standard numbers => !,",,$%^&*()
If you need them again just exit the script.....you may use autohotkey to create a better script than mine-it's just an idea.

Few days ago I received strange pop ups for a security tool that looked fishy. After researching I came to the conclusion it was a virus, trojan or whatever. Downloaded and ran malwarebyte tool. It scanned and removed them. It solved that problem but my google searches were being redirected. I have heard of this search engine redirect bug and I was in the process of shutting down my computer to reboot. Before it did, 9 updates were installed. I also went to the malware device and deleted items that were quarantined. Since then I get the bsod and am unable to boot up in any mode. I get error codes: x0000007E (xc0000005, ox8050ED93, xF78A6508, xF78A6204). Cntrl + F11 doesnt bring up a restore screen. When attempting to load my reinstall driver disc, it starts loading files until lbrtdc.sys is corrupt and fails (other times its lsapnp.sys thats corrupt). I am using another computer now to find help please. Also note I cant find my system restore or recovery disc.

I ended up on a thread here that has ended (from 2008) but a guy had the exact same symptoms except his computer didnt get bad enough for the bsod and unbootable status. A user "NeonFx" seemed to have helped this guy out. Any help out there? Please, where is this NeonFx?

Hi! This is the first problem i've never been able to solve with a few google searches and so my first forum post (Sorry if this is in the wrong place)!Since updating to Win10 I've had loads of minor issues, however this time seems a bit more serious. I'm unable to boot into windows. My PC encounters various errors and stop codes when it boots (0xc0000001, 0xc0000098, CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED, MEMORY MANAGMENT), tries to gather information and restart. It will cycle this a couple of times before going to the recovery screen. I've tried various things to fix this: -System restore gives the stop code BAD POOL CALLER.-System repair just goes in circles.-I've tried a windows 10 repair USB -SFC /SCANNOW results in windows resource protection could not perform the requested operation. -I've checked DISKPART to make sure I'm booting from the right place. -I have tried bootrec /fixmbr, rebuildbcd, fixboot etc. None of these have done anything. Any advice at this point is welcome, thank you! Christy

Hello All,
I was able to install the Tech Preview without a problem, including the ability to type info into text boxes. As part of my testing, I wanted to test out recovery options, one of the most important part of the OS to me. On the subsequent recovery something went wrong, and all I got was a message stating that I had to reinstall the OS. Which I did, and again the installation routine was smooth and I was able to enter my email address and verification code.
 
However this time, once inside Windows I could no longer type in any text box:  the cursor did not move, there was just a short, flat monotone sound for each key stroke, including the Shift, Ctrl, Alt, and arrow keys. The mouse on the other hand worked just fine, including clicking on and selecting items.
 
In an attempt to start from scratch I did a complete restore, and all went well until I came to actually start using the desktop. On it I found the customized mouse pointer I had done in my original installation, and feared that whatever had caused my typing not to function would carry over to the 'new' installation. And sure enough the keyboard only 'beeped' at me whenever I tried to use it, nothing appeared in the text boxes.
 
So in order to 'really' start from scratch, I did a clean install of Windows 7 from its DVD, and was able to type into text boxes without a problem. I then did the full install from the Win Technical Preview DVD that I know is good. And now, having been away from ... Read more

There aren't any options in the dropdown menu to pick from.

I am running Windows xp on a dell inspiron laptop. Lately I am having so much trouble typing, use has  become pretty much impossible. This is the best I can do to describe the bizarre behavior -
 I begn to type and it simply stops even though I am hitting the keys, it deletes words, letters or whole sentences I have typed or jumps back to something typed many spaces back and puts what I am currently typing in the middle of a new word.
 
Before posting on the windows xp for.um, I ran malwarebytes. It decected Tidy Network but failed to remove it. I ran several more scans with the help of someone on the windows xp forum  but the issue remains. At last I accidentally found tidy network on my, addon list for Firefox, and removed it there but the typing issue remains.

I've noticed that when I am typing anything in the Search window in Google Chrome, all of a sudden nothing happens or everything stops. I can't type anymore and my blinking cursor is gone. In order to get it back and functioning, I have to click on the mouse each time it stops. At the same time, I've noticed that the border around the window changes color when this happens. I have also noticed that in the Start Task Manager, the CPU usage jumps up momentarily when this happens. I happens on any webpage where typing is permitted. I notice it more when I am trying to type in a web address or URL address at the top of the page. What is causing this and how can I find out what it is?

I can't type properly, every few words caps lock comes on without pressing it, and/or the 'help' box for whatever programme I'm using pops up (tested in several word processors and other programmes), and/or it types '=' or 'B' instead of what I'm typing, and/or a low beeping sound (not the same as the one when you can't do certain actions, this is a beeping I've never heard before), and/or some other things.

I'm 99% certain it's not keys getting stuck, they seem to be going down fine, it's a nice and clean keyboard. The problem only started happening today, restarts and system restore have had no effect, when I ran boostspeed to check for errors it didn't change anything either.
Work due in tomorrow, and I can't finish it because of this frigging problem, it took me half an hour to type this.

This is occurring on my 2 month old PCspecialist laptop,running Windows 7.
I pressed the 'g' key over and over and every time there's a line, it's because something stopped me pressing 'g':

gggggggggggG
ggn=

Hi there i have a bit of a PC issue that i am looking into.

When using internet explorer and a site for example ebay. It will only let me populate the Username Field, But when i try enter the password the field doesn't allow any data to be entered. This happens for other programs outwith Internet Explorer too.

The OS is Windows XP

What would cause this to happen?

Thanks
 

A:Unable to Type in some fields

Press Tab instead of enter when you want to move to a password or other field in a form. Pressing enter pretty much means that all fields are complete (like pressing "Send" or "Submit" yourself).

I am running Windows 10.
The issue I am running in to, is that my KMZ file wants to download and open as a PDF.
I have Google Earth downloaded onto my PC and actually already have it open and running an overlay that I had previously downloaded.
I go to my email to retrieve a new overlay for Google Earth, and it wants to download as a PDF.
I have also attempted to drag it over onto my second screen where I have Google Earth open, and it doesn't want to open that way either.

I have gone to "Settings/System/Default Apps/Choose Default Apps by file type" to attempt to change how my kmz file is downloading, and the only options I have to change to are; Acrobat, Google Update Setup and of course the option of "Look for another app in the Store".
Whats odd though, is right above the file type "KMZ" that is listed, is a "KML" file type. That file type is showing that it is downloading with "Google Earth".

I guess my main question(s) is/are: 1.) How do I get my KMZ file to download as a PDF?
2). If my KML file type is downloading to Google Earth, should I be looking more into that instead of utilizing KMZ?

If these questions or my explanation does not seem to make sense, please ask me to try and explain differently. I will do my best.

Help?! Thanks!
 

A:Unable to change File type to KMZ from PDF

One a file that is already saved on your computer, right click and choose Open With and then browse to locate Google Earth, be sure to check the option to always use that program.

After cleaning my registry I am not able to set any "Type of View" in Windows Explorer.

Is there a Way to solve this?

Yuk! TSF does not support Registry Cleaning software. I would uninstall that software.
There is no telling what that program has done to your registry.

Or

Or if none of these work, the latest version of Adobe Reader is attatched in this thread, let me know if you want an older version.

Don't mess around anymore on it, it will only get worse. It sounds just like what i am dealing with and that Windows Police Pro. Sit back and be patient for the mods to help. I can tell you that you need to post all the error messages it gives you with opening programs, OS and other info about computer.If you are on the computer, shut down and restart in safe mode with networking, doesn't seem to load in safe mode atleast. but you still won't be able to use programs will need some moderator magic for that.

I've just upgraded my laptop to Win10 (did my desktop several months ago). The laptop is unable to take input to the Search the web and Windows task bar. I've searched the web, but all I've found was references to killing and restarting Search from the task manager, but there is no Search running. Also any time I try to start Cortana, I can see it start in Task Manager, but it then disappears. So the short of it is can't start Cortana and there is no Search running to restart. How do I get this feature to work?

Maybe this is relevant:
Solved Re-installing Cortana - Windows 10 Forums
and there are a good number of other such threads- worth doing a search.

You could try this:
1. Open run command, type PowerShell and press enter to open it
2. Right click on its icon on taskbar and select Run as administrator
3. Paste the below script
Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
4. Wait for the Powershell to complete the process, ignore any errors if displayed in the window.

Does your start menu work?
How many icons do you see down the side of the Cortana box (if you can display it - Win key + S)?

Beyond that, as you upgraded, there is a possibility of something being incompatible. What happens if you do a clean boot?

Please clarify "unable to take input to the Search the web and Windows task bar."

Hey there,

A few times a year I go away from my home station and take my tower and laptop with me. As my tower doesn't have a wireless adapter I connect to the the internet by plugging it into my laptop and sharing it's wireless connection. It's all been fine up until now. I've just plugged the ethernet cable between laptop and PC but the network has come up as Unidentified and has made it Public and as such I can't access the internet from my PC (surfing fine here on my laptop though, it's the LAN connection that's giving me issues).

I've no idea why it's doing this as in the past it has worked fine. I can't seem to change the network type as clicking on it only allows me to change the name and icon, not the type. It might be interesting to note that viewing the network from my PC it is a Home network but my laptop seems to think it's Unidentified.

Can anyone clue me on on how to fix this please as this issue has never cropped up before.

My Moms laptop has some serious problems. It started around the 21 she showed me she had one of the fake anti virus popups(Internet Security 2010 or 2011). I tried to remove and thought I got it in time but I couldnt run malwarebytes. Now I can not run any type of scanner. Malwarebytes, adaware,and superantispyware start to run then just stop without any errors. then I get the following message when I try to rerun them: "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permission to access the item." And avg 2011 cannot scan because there are no active components shown in the program.

Any help would be appreciated.

It for some reason will no longer let me type anything. I am able to type in help but not in print layout view, or other views. I am able to type in draft view but it doesn't show up in print layout view or print preview. I am unable to see any cursor. Whatever I type is invisible but shows up in undue and the word counter counts it. I have checked to see if it was page protected and it is not. Any ideas on how to fix this.

Hello,
 
My 8 year old son decided to download some Malware onto my computer while I was deployed the last few months.  Anyway Im running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit and am having issues entering text into IE 11.  I believe the issue stems from PUP.Optional.MindSpark.
 
Im pretty sure I removed MindSpark completely by using MalwareBytes, SuperAntiSpyware, and CCleaner to get rid of it.  I also have McAfee AntiVirus which didnt catch Mindspark.
 
So the problem now and when the PUP was on my computer is that I cannot enter text into text fields on IE 11.  Right now Im using Google Chrome and am having no issues with it, but I would like to get the IE 11 problem fixed.  Also as a note if I run IE 11 as an administrator it acts normal, but as soon as I close the browser and reopen it, it stops working again.  A couple of things I have done that wound up with no results include:  Restoring Internet options to default, turning off protected mode, and ran a Windows system performance scan.  Also Ive made sure everything on my computer has the latest and greatest updates.
 
So hopefully somebody here can help me out.
 
Thanks!

Google search bar unresponsive, sometimes works in separate tab, very slow.I will be attaching the combofix and hijackthis log files. Due to the inability to use the nav bar it is difficult to get the Kaspersky scan. I have Trend Micro, it is updated daily. When i realized i was whacked (mid last week) i scanned the system and deleted 13 infected files (virus/malware types). Obviously, this didn't do much.Also - my monitor sometimes doesn't get recognized and i have to hard boot several times before the monitor kicks on.

Apparently, my (HKLM:RUN) programs doesn't work on startup. I've used the guide and Googled some answers, yet they failed to work. I used Ccleaner to check what was wrong. It seems that the programs I wanted running on startup shows that it is enabled. I even checked with MSCONFIG and it showed that it was enabled. I restarted my computer and wasn't able to run it. What was able to work though was the Startup User way. I was wondering why my original HKLM:Run wasn't working.
