printer and key pad problem!!

by chaplinis / October 31, 2009 6:45 PM PDT

Hello; I am new to the forum and wonder if anyone can help me with an answer as to why my printer suddenly won't print anything from the internet? It will print any/everything else on my computer and up till two days ago would also print anything from the internet. The next problem I find is that my delete key no longer works as well. It will delete nothing, does anyone know what could be causing these two things and what steps I must take to fix them? Thanks so much to anyone who can help me solve my dilemma.

Just fixed one like that.

My wife's pc would not print when the print icon in the web browser was clicked. Easy enough to fix. Just click on File, Print and select the printer to print to. All fixed.

The keyboard could have failed. Try a new keyboard.

Printer and delete key problem

Thanks for you suggestions...when I click on file to print I am not given an option of a printer to select, actually nothing happens. As for the delete key, I don't think it is the keyboard as it will sometimes work if I use the backspace key as well???? I am in a quandry as to why these things suddenly ceased to function.

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?
