Trouble with Keyboard/Glide Pad

Question: Why doesn't the keyboard or the glide pad function?

Try the following in this order:

1. Press

Ctrl+Alt+Delete and select Users tab of Windows Task Manager dialog

box. Click Disconnect or Logoff; then, Yes.


If the step 1 fails to work, press the power switch for more than four seconds to
turn off the system. Ten seconds later, turn on your computer.


If you still cannot turn off the system with the power switch, confirm the hard
disk indicator is not lit and press the reset switch on the bottom of your computer
to turn off the system (refer to Resetting the System section of Chapter 2). Ten
seconds later, turn on your computer by pressing the power switch.

Question: Why does the glide pad malfunction?

The surface of the glide pad or your palm may be moist or dirty and grease. Wipe
the glide pad with a soft, dry cloth.

another disk.
