  1. Strange problem of the sometimes broken key.


    I can't for the life of me figure this out. My Acer laptop recently stopped recognizing its C key entirely. I assumed the issue was hardware until the other day when I noticed it works fine in minecraft still. I can type c all day there no problem. Any idea what causes this or how to fix it so I can go back to writing without copy/pasting C's all day.

    Is my graphics card broken?

    UPDATE: Please see here.

    I have a Sapphire HD 4830.

    When I boot into XP all is initially fine and I am able to see the desktop.

    However, when I click on the start bar and navigate a few steps, I receive an immediate white screen of death and a total irrecoverable lock-up.

    I am confused about what this could mean and I would be grateful for any suggestions on the best course of action to test and repair the problem.

    Does this sort of issue suggest that the graphics card is irretrievably broken?

    • P.S. Produkey is showing me a BIOS OEM key and a Windows 10 Home key. Both different.
    • Mabe I should quit while I'm ahead.

    Strange boot problem


    I am trying to get my head round the 6 steps above before having a go. If you can expand on them it may give me a bit more confidence. I cant lose the whole contents of my PC.
    Have attached details as you suggested.
