Having problems with your HP TouchSmart IQ770 PC Desktop ?
I just got a new computer and the f3 key is not working.
Chances are it's the keyboard. If you are still using the old PS/2 connector for your keyboard, check where it plugs into the computer for broken or bent pins. Chances are it is probably USB though, in which case the problem is probably an electrical fault or loose contact in the keyboard it's really not worth fixing, buy a new one. They're extremely cheap nowadays; Under R100 / $5-10

My Dell OptiPlex GX 520 has frozen. It runs Windows XP. Here in the UK, we have had a cold snap in what the papers are calling "The Coldest Day". Dunno if that's got anything to do with it. Anyway, I came down in the morning and the screen was off as if it had gone into sleep mode, but shaking the mouse or tapping the keyboard did not work. So, I tried turning it off and on again. The bootup screen came on, and the bar filled nearly up to the top, but then froze there. I left it for five minutes
