Click start, click help and support, click undo changes to my computer with system restore, put the dot in create a restore point, click next, name it by date, (so you can find it), click OK

Hi Keith,
Sorry for the delay back to you.

I did as you said: start, help and support. That was as far as I got. Hour glass came up like it was trying but nothing came up? I did a search for the topic help and support, It was found, clicked it, same thing....nothing?
Thank you
Laura

Do it without the restore point

Uninstall the drivers for the printer, run tune up disc clean up and registry clean up, install the drivers from the software CD

I dont know what is going on. Did my steps. now my keyboard does not work? I have tried start, keyboard etc. I can not type on my keyboard. booted in safe mode. Could toggle in the black screen when it says move cursor to what I wanted then click enter until it got to the desk top? I am have issues here and its frustrating. Working on my laptop currently. Do you have any idea why my keyboard will not type. Its like the plug n play drivers are gone and I do not have the xp cd. Not sure I ever got one of those with computers. Suggestions?
Thank you,
Laura

Check the lead from the keyboard to the PC is connected properly, it may have worked loose, if it is wireless, are the batteries ok

If it has an F Mode key does it make any difference if you press that?
