I cannot reply to emails

I cannot reply to emails because when I endeavour to reply and commence typing, absolutely nothing comes out to show what I have typed, apart from a thin yellow line.
Can anyone out there help me please.

by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / June 16, 2008 10:15 AM PDT

Which email client are you using? Webmail? Microsoft Outlook? Outlook Express? Thunderbird? Eudora? Incredimail? Something else?

Can you type things in any other type of program, say a text document or Microsoft Word?

What type of operating system is installed on the computer?

Laptop or desktop?

What type of internet connection?

Have you tried swapping in a known "good" keyboard?

The more information you give us, the better informed our answer will be.

Hope this helps.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
