Keyboard is driving me crazy! Help!!

Q: Keyboard is driving me crazy! Help!!

Two days ago my keyboard started doing this:

_"T6he 6house about 6h blocks down 5got 5g 5green bus6hes._"

what I actually typed:

"The house about 6 blocks down got 5 green bushes."

Also my control key now opens my windows media player. Worst of all, every time I type an "s" it opens a help tab!!! Imagine trying to type when every time you hit the s you would open a new tab!

Windows vista 64 bit
4gb ram
If you need any other info please ask. My typing frustration is too high to put anything else right now (i am having to paste every s!!)

Preferred Solution: Keyboard is driving me crazy! Help!!

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.)

I bought this new laptop and now whn I type faster or put my fingers relaxed and then type quickly.. every 2 or 3 letters I try to type the cursor or jumps back 4 or 5 letters or deletes the whole or part of a word and then starts from there or the cursor ends up in another tab or table etc or the window suddenly gets minimized(it is not a virus.. it is the damn keyboard). I tried typing slowly to see if my fingers hit some other button by mistake but I don't see it .. even if it did.. what kinda button on the whole keyboard makes the cursor jump few lines back or few letters back or delete half of a word and start there. I really had to stop and type this extremely slowly like as if I was typing on a blackberry or something.. it is ****ing annoying as hell.. do I have to return this piece of crap now???

btw if you are interested it is a ACER ASPIRE AS5315-2848 LAPTOP PC(2.1GHz/1GB).
 

A:Laptop Keyboard driving me crazy

Is it possible that you are without realizing it, letting part of you hand touch the touch pad while you are typing? This is a fairly common thing with touch pads on laptops. I have always disabled my touchpad and used a laptop mouse on my laptops for this reason and the fact that I don't like touchpads also.

A:My laptop keyboard is driving me crazy - keeps missing out letters and spaces!

Sounds like you need a new keyboard.

Try a different OS to see if the problem goes away. If it doesn't, it is a hardware problem.

Relatively ignorant on this problem. I have a gigabyte GA 7zx motherboard with an 800 duron chip. Have a PNY nvidia graphics card and have recently put in a Diamond DT-688 sound card. As in the post below I can't get recording to work with the mic. I tried reinstalling the drivers again and now I am getting a message which reads, "There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive\Device\Harddisk2\DR5"

I haven't a clue what this means since I don't know how to put a disk in a harddisk. Any ideas?
 

A:Crazy message is driving me crazy

Well its probably reffering to some kind of storage device you are using, if you have any beside One EIDE harddisk...

What's the Operating system you're working with? Do you have 2hardrives or a zip drive or something? A SCZI drive perhaps? Are you trying, albeit inadvertantly, to record on your CDRW drive?

I have a Compaq Presario 2570US laptop. Of late, whenever I type something, whether in MS Word, Search Engine Search Bar or even in this message etc, my computer DELETES (backspaces) what I type on its own. Sometimes it deletes a letter, a couple words or every darn thing I type.

Also when I am in Explorer, it would "back" to a previous page until it gets to the first page I was on.

When there are no windows open, the computer continuosly "beeps" like it is trying to backspace something.

I thought it was a virus, but newly installed Norton found nothing. I also thought it was a hijacker, but Xoft Spy found nothing.

I "restored" my system with the Restore System Discs and everything was normal/quiet for about a week and a half, or so, and then the problem started again.

Really frustratung, cause I cannot type what I want and I cant seem to find the problem

HELP!!!! PLEASE!!!!

Hello Ralanders and welcome to TSF...

Couple of items you need in order to begin our process:

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. You should not have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.

Please download HijackThis http://www.greyknight17.com/spy/HijackThis.exe - this program will help us determine if there are any spyware/malware on your computer. Create a folder at C:\HJT and move HijackThis.exe there. Double click on the program to run it.

1. If it gives you an intro screen, just choose 'Do a system scan and save a logfile'.
2. If you don't get the intro screen, just hit Scan and then click on Save log.
3. Get HijackThis Analyzer http://www.greyknight17.com/spy/KRC%...20Analyzer.zip and save it to the same folder as the hijackthis.log file. Run HijackThis Analyzer and type in 'y' if you agree. The 'result.txt' file will open up in Notepad. Copy the whole result.txt log and post it in the forum. You don't need to post the original hijackthis.log (unless we ask for it). Do not fix anything in HijackThis since they may be harmless.

If you have a fast internet connection (broadband), run an online virus scan at TrendMicro http://uk.trendmicro-europe.com/ente...all_launch.php. Just follow the instructions on the site to run the online scan.... Read more

Please print these directions and then proceed with the following steps in order.Step #1Download CCleaner and install it but do not run it yet.ImportantYour copy of HijackThis needs to be in a folder of it's own. If it is run from Temporary folders the backups and HijackThis itself could be accidentally deleted if the Temporary folders are cleaned.

If it is run from inside a compressed file then the backups are not created at all.Please open My ComputerDouble-click on Local Disk (C:)Click on the File menu, point to New and then click on Folder. Name the folder 'HijackThis' or 'HJT'.Unzip to or copy and paste HijackThis.exe to the new folder (do not run HijackThis directly out of the sfx or compressed file).Step #2Start in Safe Mode Using the F8 method:Restart the computer.As soon as the BIOS is loaded begin tapping the F8 key until the boot menu appears.Use the arrow keys to select the Safe Mode menu item.Press the Enter key.Step #3Start HijackThis and click the Scan button to perform a scan.

Well, here's the deal. Over the past week, we've run all the good free programs (AdAware SE, Spybot, and I even tried Microsoft's Anti-Spyware.) All of the programs detected and cleaned various things, including:eXact.BargainBuddy, SurfSide Kick, osoa.exe, Adware.ZioCom.B, eXact.Downloader, CashBack, Bullseye Network, Media Tickets, CDT Software, 1800Solutions, E2Give, Midaddle, Searchmiracle.EliteBar, and MANY others.Eventually, after running all the programs, they all come up clean, but the pop ups and ads come back.

While this is happening, it also freezes my computer and mouse for maybe 3-5 seconds. This happens sporadically, sometimes continuously for 8-10 times in a row. I have noticed sometimes that if I leave my mouse sit for a while that it will stop and as soon as I move the mouse it starts again. I notice it mostly online, but it does do it off line also sometimes. Please help!

I'm having a problem loading the motherboard software - using the express installer. Its an Intel board that claims to have USB 2.0 type ports, however after I had the OS installed etc. I pluged in my iPod only to get an error saying I had a fast device plugged into a slow port.
I then remembered I had forgotten to install the MB software, aso I tried to install using the Express installer CD that came with the board. This got about 50% through and then put the system into shutdown, upon re-start you get to the windows start up screen and then nothing, you never reach the login screen.
So I decided to start at the beginning again and re-loaded the OS. So I was back getting the same USB error. Then I tried installing the MB software manually (as recommended on the Intel site) but again I have the same issue. So to get anywhere I need to install the OS again.
What am I doing wrong?
Do I need to get the MB software loaded first? and if so how do I wipe the HD in order to do that.
Or
With the OS installed how do I install the MB stuff and get the USB ports functioning properly?
 

A:its driving me crazy!!!

The reason why you are getting the message is because your motherboard might not support USB 2.0 speed.

Read this forum http://forums.techguy.org/t340223.html and you should be able to find out whether your motherboard can support USB 2.0.

I'm not sure what the malware is called or how I got it but I can't seem to shake it. About once a day I will get about 15 explorer windows popping open, separated by about 15 seconds each. They come to the forefront so I have to stop whatever I'm working on in order to deal with each one individually. Any help on how to get rid of them would be GREATLY appreciated... this has been going on for months.

Hi,

New to the site so hello all. I'm having an issue and I'm not quite sure what it is, when I'm on the net and using my usual websites (Facebook, business stuff etc) I could be on it and if I need to do something I may close them and sometimes when I come back I try to open the same website I was just on say 5 minutes ago I get an error message saying "This webpage is not available, ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED" Keeping in mind I was on the website not long ago?? When I try other pages they seem to work fine, This is very frustrating as the only way to solve it sometimes is to restart the computer so I can get on the page I want. Has anyone got any ideas what this could be? I use Google Chrome if that makes a difference.

Thanks

I see no problems in the Scanlog at all. If you check the Process tab in the Task Manager, is anything consuming very high cpu resources? Ignore "system idle process" which should be very high.

Processors will normally slow down if overheated, so that might be something to look into.

Hi, Since I replaced the nic card on my computer, I cannot longer play certain games on Pogo.com. I have never had this problem before and its driving me crazy.

I can play games like Word Whomp, and Bookworm, but if I want to play Chess or Dominoes, the computer freezes solid and I have to re-boot. It lets me open the windows and choose a table, but when I click on "Okay" that's when it freezes. I have disabled the Pop-up stopper, but it does the same. I have tried playing from Firefox, but there's no change. What went wrong?

Pogo is the only site that I know of where they let you set up a private room, and since I play games against my young grandson, I like that feature a lot.

Has anyone in here experience anything like this, and how was it fixed?

Thank you in advance,

Annie

Recently I was running my desktop with 1gig ram (2x512), since the pc is used as "server" for small business purpose of running company software on sql i thought i could boost speed by maxing out memory.

So I bought 4 1gig chips and installed them, everything seemed to be working okay until ever so frequently the blue screen of death would show up and the computer would restart automatically.

I ran memtest86 and the chips passed, however in windows memory diagnostic they failed the LRAND test. I ran it all night and failed 80 plus times, all four chips.

I later found out that 32 bit systems cannot read more than 3.62 gigs, so i removed two 1 gig chips and now running on 2x512 + 2x1024 which brings the ram to 3gigs now. After running windows server 2003 for five minutes, bam! the same thing all over again. blue screen of death showing "irql_not_less_or_equal"

I know the RAM is the issue but why and how can i fix it is what i need to know. someone mentioned it might be the motherboard, but can that be the issue if only the 2 512mb chips work with no problems?

Please help.
 

A:RAM is driving my PC crazy!

You'll need to check each chip individual by having them installed 1gb at a time. I'd put the two 512mb chips back in and then one of the 1gb chips and see how that does for a while, etc.

A few days ago I was eating lunch went to the kitchen and my pc had rebooted not by me. Ever since the thing has run very slow, and seems like loads of things are running.

When it started up, my symantec had the msg pop up saying "Live Update Warning! There is not enough disk space to install all available updates. Click 'Yes' for help on freeing up disk space." There was 72G free just before the pc rebooted, with about 35G in the recycle bin. Now only 1 file in the recycle bin and I've gotten several different sized free when I go to my computer to see properties of c drive. I've gotten 72G, 44g, 0 space and a few others.

I ran Malwarebytes, Ad-aware, and Avast in safe mode, all of which said it found something, and I needed to reboot to let it work at start up, but none actually came back on when windows started.

Stored videos/music run VERY slow, if I type something in the google chrome search bar and hit enter, most of the time nothing happens. The strangest thing seems to be that the longer it runs the slower it gets... Usually Ican figure this stuff out but this one is driving me crazy! Thanks in advance!!!

OK, so I've used 20 cd r's and tried compressing through operating system, but still have gotten nowhere. Trying to take video from an 8mm camcorder and burn it on a data disc, so as when it is put into any computer, new or old, it will automatically play. Problem is, video is way to big to fit on the discs and dob't know how to compress it through Nero so it fits. Have tried video cd, but end up with alot of file icons (which are confusing to clients) and have to open the proper file with the "how would you like to open this" whcih is also confusing and time consuming. Any suggestions? Anyone. Many thanks........Scott
 

A:driving me CRAZY

Most video files such as DivX and Mpeg4 are alredy compressed, and cant be compressed any further. If you really want to put it on a cd you will have to divide the film into sections eg. 1000mgs = 2x 500mb parts. As far as i know this can be achieved with windows movie maker, or any other video authoring software.

Hope this helps, if you really want it on one cd, try a Dual Layer DVD rewirter you'll be able to fit it on there.

Hi all. I've been reading this site for quite a while and have solved many computer issues with your advice. However, this one is driving me crazy. I have a Dell 1501 Inspiron Laptop. Here's the issues I'm having.

1) Keyboard Lag (on and off) 2-3 second lag
2) Can not shut down, restart, or hibernate XP from the start menu. I have to use the power button to shut down.
3) Screen saver will not work
4) Internet explorer 8 will stop responding after being online for 5-10 mins

Suspecting a virus/malaware these are the programs I have already run:
1) Symantic Anti-Virus
2) Spybot Search and destroy
3) Malwarebytes
4) SmitFraudFix
5) Combofix
6) Superantispyware
7) AVG 2011 Free edition
8) CCleaner

I am out of ideas. Please help. The next step I would have tried was Dr. Web Cureit.

Where do I begin...

Well first, I had my homepage continually being changed to "about:blank" but i think i fixed that.

Next, every once ina while when I will just type in a website (hotmail, google, etc) it will redirect me to adult pages and popups one after another.

Besides that, a constant problem is that when I click on a link in IE, the program freezes for at least 10 seconds, with the hourglass mouse, and the little IE flag thing up in the right corner doesn't do that motion thing it does when loading a page, until after the program freezes for a bit.

FYI: I have done repeated virus scans, and scans using SpyBot search and destroy, Xoft Spy, NoAdware, and have used CWShredder (whihch I believe got rid of the about:blank homepage).

Several months ago when I shut the computer down the light indicating hard drive activity would go out but the power light would stay on. I turned the power off using the switch on the power supply. When I attempted to restart the computer it would not boot up. I decided to do a clean install using the OEM disk that I purchased when I built the computer several years ago. I went through the steps of doing a clean install and the installation would get to the "completing installation" step and after a couple of minutes the screen would go black. I tried to use the Windows disk to do a start up repair several times. The process would show that Windows 7 was installed and all of the repair sets were successfully. I tried new hard drives and downloaded an ISO file from Microsoft. I read someplace that the ASUS A8N SLI Deluxe, which was the motherboard I was using, would not run windows 7. I had used this motherboard for about 8 years running window 7 but I decided to replace everything except the video card and solve my problem. Now with a new motherboard, new CPU, new memory and a new power supply, I am still having the same problem. The installation is normal until it attempts the last restart and it dies. I have decided it is me that is causing the problem but I do not know what I am doing wrong and must be repeating my error each time I try to do a clean install.
Any suggestions will be appreciated.

So - i have a dvd burner, managed somehow! to burn a few half baked home videos using Ulead and Pinnicle software...but im at a complete loss regarding how much you can fill on one of these disks, be it dvd-r or + etc.... and whats the best disk to mess about with ie, to rewrite things over and over while i get to grips with editing my camcorder footage and checking the playback quality....Does it take a while to erase disks...why cant they be like videotapes and simply go over old footage? or can they? please help?

While im hear, not asking too much i know, but its fustrating..i have the gear but just cant seem to get the results.

I simply want to put all my vhs stuff onto disks...i want to re-edit my stuff and put on titles..ok so i have the software to do this...back to pinnicle and ulead 9.0...but like everything computer wise...sort one problem out up comes another.

Please tell me, best method ( in english ) if i want say a 2hour disk of home footage..putting on a couple of my newly edited movies and outtake clips...what disk is the best for quality. And can it be done easliy what problems will i be facing...already it comes up with, 'this disk is not empty...etc' drives me mad.

A:driving me a little crazy

Us a RW disc for testing, they can be written too many times.. Only takes a short time to erase.

Time wise the amount of footage you can put on disc depends on the bitrate. You could if you wanted get up to 7+ hours on a single 4.7 GB DVD using a very low bitrate.

Low bitrate makes a lower quality video though. There's a calculator here to help you determine bitrate: http://www.videohelp.com/calc.htm

For VHS 6000 is more than sufficient to maintain quality, that will give you about 1 1/2 hours of video on a single DVD. You can lower it, get yourself that RW and find out what's acceptable to you.

"The server reported an internal error. Account: 'Hotmail', Server: 'http://services.msn.com/svcs/hotmail/httpmail.asp', Protocol: HTTPMail, Server Response: 'Internal Server Error', Port: 0, Secure(SSL): No, Error Number: 0x800CCC3D"
Then I noticed in my preview screen of the e-mail on the same account this message:
"Message could not be displayed
Outlook Express encountered an unexpected problem while displaying this message. Check your computer for low memory or low disk space and try again."
And a little box comes up with this error message:

A:CiD ads driving me crazy

Hi, Welcome to TSG!!
You have two anti-virus programs running, which will cause trouble. Uninstall one of them.

Download OTS.exe to your Desktop and double-click on it to extract the files. It will create a folder named OTS on your desktop.

Close any open browsers.
If your Real protection or Antivirus intervenes with OTS, allow it to run.
Open the OTS folder and double-click on OTS.exe to start the program.
In Additional Scans section put a check in Disabled MS Config Items and EventViewer logs
Now click the Run Scan button on the toolbar.
The program will be scanning huge amounts of data so depending on your system it could take a long time to complete. Let it run unhindered until it finishes.
When the scan is complete Notepad will open with the report file loaded in it.
Save that notepad file
Use the Reply button, scroll down to the attachments section and attach the notepad file here.

NOTE: The only people who can see attachments in the HJT forum are: the thread starter, Admins & Mods, and HJT Helpers & Trainees.

A:pop ups driving me crazy

hi


first download and run winsock xp ,click here

and i am not sure if you made some pre cleaning ,if not :
do this :

do you have these 2 free programs ?

adaware se version 1.5
http://www.download.com/3000-2144-1...page&tag=button

update ,scan and fix anything found .



spybot search and destroy
http://www.download.com/3000-2144-1...tml?tag=lst-0-1

update ,scan and fix anything found ,hit the immunize button at the end .


Go here and do an online virus scan.

Be sure and put a check in the box by "Auto Clean" before you do the scan. If it finds anything that it cannot clean have it delete it or make a note of the exact file name and file location so you can delete it yourself.

Go here and do another online virus scan.

reboot

and post a new HJT log .

Ok, so i built this computer about 9-10 months ago. i have had this problem from the very first boot up and i have yet to figure out what it is.

I realized it for the first time when i started playing WoW. Every few minutes, my computer freezes up and the sound starts stuttering. This will go on for 4-5 seconds then normal play will resume. This gets very annoying, especially in PvP.

I get the same problem with all the high-end games i play: Half-life 2, UT 2k4, etc. I can play the original half-life and other older games with no problems at all.

Also, when i try to rip music CDs to my harddrive, using either windows media or iTunes, my sound starts stuttering like it does in-game and i get the infamous blue screen of death.

The BSoD gives me this error:

STOP: 0x0000009c (0x00000004, 0x80545FF0, 0xB2000000, 0x00070F0F)

im not quite sure what that means...

My specs:
AMD Athelon 3400+
GeForce 6800
1 GB of Geil ultra RAM

Please someone help!! This problem is driving me crazy!

Thanks.

This network thing is driving me up the wall. I have this new Desktop PC with Vista SP-1 64 bit. We will call this one #1.
#2 is also a Desktop with Vista SP-1
#3 Is a Laptop with Vista SP-1, all are HP products.
My network has a D-Link N wireless Router, and it is all set up and running fine except for this one thing that I cannot resolve.
From #1... I can see #2 & #3 and open all the public folders without a password.
When I try to see #1 from either #2 or #3 I am asked for a password and user name.
I have turned everything I know of, related to passwords off on #1, yet it is still asking.
I feel it is something in the new #1 PC
I use all the usernames I know along with my password to no avail...
Any help will be greatly appreciated...

A:Driving me crazy !

I've been at this for a couple of days now, and going over all the settings on my other two PC's I noticed in the "Network & Sharing " that the "Turn off password protected sharing" was indeed turned off. Checking my new PC it was still on.
I could kick myself for overlooking such a simple thing, still I suppose that's how we learn.
All is fine now.

I have XP Pro, Athalon 800 cpu runningat 1.05ghz, 768MB Ram (not DDR), 2 hard drives. My perplexing problem is the cpu takes almost all the usage whenever I do anything. It will max out while I've still got 400+mb of ram not touched? I've tried reducing the page file, but it shows the change I make (min 2mb max 8mb) but still alocates 1149mb total memory available???? Help, I'm over my head with this.
 

A:XP Driving me crazy

When you do a ctrl-alt-del to bring up the Task Manager, under processes, which one is taking all this cpu time?

A copy/paste of the HijackThis Scanlog might also be helpful in identifying problems:

I keep getting partypoker, winfixer and other random pop-ups which are driving me crazy. This happens even when I do not have IE running. Stupidly, I'd left my laptop on the other night with the volume up as I'd been watching a movie. At approximately 3am, I was awakened by someone shouting. After recovering from my heart attack, I realised that the shouting was coming from the computer. I need to get this crap off of my computer.

I use Zone Alarms firewall, Symantec AntiVirus along with Spybot, Spy Sweeper and Microsoft AntiSpyware and they all find nothing. I've read 1000 forums, tried using Virtumundobegone (which found nothing apart from the odd statcounter cookie) and have tried to analyse my own Hijackthis log but cannot see anything that is mentioned on the web (arggh - I just got another partypoker popup as i type this).
