Issue: When I Type Using Keyboard Is Not What Appears On The Screen


Ever since upgrading from windows vista to windows 7 on my asus laptop, i have times when what i type on my keyboard is not what appears on the screen. All programs have been affected at some point. When the error occurs, the keystrokes go through the entire keyboard in order, from left to right, row by row, top to bottom. (~12345. Etc). This happens no matter which keys i am pressing.

Can't Properly Type With Japanese Ime On English Keyboard

Can't properly type with japanese ime on the english keyboard /windows 7 english version i have a problem with the english windows 7 home premium on the english keyboard when typing japanese using ime. No, i should not need the ultimate edition: with windows vista and xp home premium or equivalent editions, there wasn't such a problem. With windows 7 ime, the keyboard layout seems to be tied to japanese keyboard.

For example, if you type [shift] + [2], - english keyboard returns [@]
- Japanese keyboard returns ["] (double quotation)

I physically have an english keyboard with my pc, and i get ["] when i actually meant to type [@]. As i mentioned, it was perfectly fine with xp or vista to type with japanese ime and with the english keyboard layout. How do i make the same setting with window 7?

Using On-screen Keyboard To Print Screen

Well, firstly, thanks for making the onscreen keyboard so much bigger and more usable in w7 compared to xp. All good, until you need to "print screen", at which point you get an enormous section of the screen that you don't want - i.e. The new enlarged virtual keyboard.

So, is there a way to use the onscreen keyboard to print just the screen and not itself - sort of like you would get if it really was a keyboard - imagine how annoying it would be for all users if every time they used that function it inserted a nice big picture of your real keyboard over what you actually wanted. This has been a problem with xp, now a bigger one - 4 times as big in fact, with w7.

Printer Appears In Unspecified Devices

I connected a zebra printer to my windows 7 machine using usb. The printer appeared in the unspecified devices. I went to there web site and obtained the latest drivers and installed them. The printer appeared in the printers section and works fine. However, the printer also still appears in the unspecified devices and there are no options to delete it. When the printer is switched off it disappears only to reappear when switched on again. I have seen another issue with several posts of the same type but no resolution was posted.

Taskbar Flashes - Application Appears To Lose Focus

When running some programs (i.e.microsoft access 2007 and tinker to name two), the programs appear to lose focus to the task bar in windows 7. The symptoms are as follows: 1) program window flashes (for microsoft access it happens only with the file open form) and the icon for the program on the task bar inexplicably scrolls to the right and back with each flash.

When this is occurring, it is nearly impossible to select an access file to open with the open. Dialog or play to play the game tinker. Setting hkey_current_usercontrol_paneldesktopforegroundlocktimeout to equal 30d40 seemed to resolve a similar issue with minesweeper, but not the other programs mentioned above. One more item to note: the issue appears to be user account specific. Any ideas?

Cannot Download Apps - Files Appears To Complete But Are Not Present

I have recently moved to a 64-bit win7 machine - with all of the fun of shifting my software that entails. Somewhere during the process ie8 stopped allowing me to download files - i get the screen for saving the file, there appears to be a download but there is nothing there. I have tried resetting to defaults twice. I have tried creating shortcuts from the 32 and 64 bits versions of ie8 on the machine. I've done the right click 'run as administrator' i'm running bitdefender 2010 (win7 compatible) and no other antivirus/firewall. Any suggestions welcomed

Video Hardware Error Appears When External Monitor Is Connected

Video hardware error message appears when an external monitor is connected to the laptop and i move the mouse after windows 7 has turned off the display (after 10 minutes according to "balanced" power plan). I run windows 7 professional 64-bit on my dell xps m1530 laptop and also use an acer v223w external monitor connected through hdmi/dvi cable. The graphics card is a nvidia geforce 8600m gt with 256mb. I have the latest graphics card driver (version 8. 16. 11. 8681) and monitor driver installed.

Everything works fine, except that i always get a video hardware error when i move my mouse to get the display back after windows 7 has turned it off (after 10 minutes according to "balanced" power plan). Sometimes the whole system crashes and i get a blue screen. I didn't have this problem two weeks ago when i was still running vista 32-bit. What should i try to solve this problem, other than disabling the "screen turn off" option in the power plan?

Can I Filter A Library By File Type?

I create some various types of content like newsletters, videos, website work, and i store all the files from each project together, sorted into folders by client and then project name. So you can see that while my pictures library may be a great way to organze my personal photos, i don't put any image files associated with a project into my pictures folder, right?

Well i don't really have personal pictures on this machine, so it would still be nice to just see all my picture files from all projects. I figured i might add my 'projects' folder to be one of the folders that gets aggregated into the pictures library. But when i do, everything from my projects shows up in the pictures library. How can i set the pictures 'virtual folder' to only show files of an image type, like only png, svg, gif, jpg, and stuff like that?

I seem to remember that libraries are based on "longhorn's" search folders, so how do i make it happen?

Clear Type Text Option

When setting up clear type text, the application will not save settings. My words are extremely blurry when i have the text size set at 100% and can only view text with the size set at 115% or higher. Changing the resolution only makes it worse. (I have computer set to recommended resolution status. )  Any idea on how i can get clear type to save my preferred settings?  Actually, clear type worked during initial set up but after recent windows updates clear type hasn't worked properly.

Program Cannot Be Run Because Of The Internet Connection Type

"program cannot be run because of the internet connection type" or "connect to the internet or contact your network administrator" i am having this issue with internet explorer whereby there must be a problem with the connection type settings because everytime i attempt to download either an application such as java or another search engine such as google chrome and even anti-virus such as symantec.

I am allowed to download the program but when i go to run the program i get different error messages for each application but all saying the same thing e.g. There is a problem with the internet connectivity-and this blocks the applications from running-another thing that happens is that when i get to an internet "hot-spot" where the browser is supposed to redirect to the login page of that network my internet explorer is not doing that.

Instead, it brings me to my home page and does not allow the network access page to be displayed. It also happens with skype, i downloaded it but when i went to run it, it sates: "please connect to the internet" when i am actually online on other tabs. Your help would be really appreciated.

Ps: i have tried reseting the setting for internet explorer from the advanced tab on the "internet options" window. I have also contacted my school's it center and they say that their connection is not limited in anyway (it also happens at home where i administer my network). I wanted to uninstall ie but could not find it on the "remove programs" list. Again, i have internet access but i am just not allowed to run applications and sometimes videos.

Search Java File Type Contents

I am having problems searching my . Java files. I go to the folder the file it is in, type a keyword in the search box, like "system", and it shows there are no files that match my search. When i change the extension to .txt, it finds my files. I have checked the advanced options in index options and the java extension is listed there as checked to be indexed for searching contents and file attributes. I have also checked that my individual file properties are set to allow for indexing of file properties and contents. Is this just a bug or am i missing something? If anyone could help me with this let me know.

Trouble Setting Up A Home Network (non-internet Type)

I am trying to set up a home network (non-internet type). It needs to work like a cleint type as my laptop is the main and the other three can connect to it to do work through the same program. I followed all the instructions on how to set up homegroup and made sure everyone has same passwords, and settings and all that and i am still having trouble getting all computers to connect correctly everytime we log on. I have done all trouble shooting and they cannot find out what the problem is. It makes it very frustrating when my children have to wait a half an hour or so just so i can try and get everyone connected right. Does anyone have any solutions? Or is ther a way that i can make the network work without a homegroup?

Unable To Run .exe File Type Problem

Would like to delete dos mode, i operate a "windows 7 home premium" laptop. A few days ago i was attempting to download an updated version of'adobe flash player' which never seemed to complete. It seemed directly after being at the adobe site that any time i try to open an exe file (executable), the file is sent to wordpad in 'dos mode'. I have never came across this situation before. My son-in-law came by last night and tried to run some kind of program off a usb stick, and he said, 'it would run'. After he left i was able to get on the internet, but still have the problem with exe type files.
