Default Laptop Demise

Keikth found out what's wrong with my old lap top. The keyboard has malfunctioned, which means that I can no longer go on Chat at night til I get a new computer. This one totally refuses to do Chat. I'll miss ya, guys.

Judy, most laptops have a port for an external keyboard. You should be able to pick up a cheap keyboard at an office supply store for under $20 that hopefully will plug into your laptop. Good luck, I hope that helps.

You can use a USB keyboard.

Judy... I feel for you. I came home from my Brilliance cruise to find my desk top computer had crashed and burned... so I too am stuck on a laptop for awhile.

Your laptop just may not have Java enabled, which you need for chat.

You might want to just and try and download Java. Then chat should work for you.

Thanks, Beenie. That would work (I'd already tried it. That's why I think it's the keyboard.) But I need to get Judy to give up some portability to do that. I have an emergency request out to my son, the geek, for advice on getting a replacement laptop.


This is Judy. I've wanted an Apple for a long time now. I'm digging in my heels about portability. I want that, I want it to be white, and I'd like a big screen, but that's not critical. I am willing to own a reconditioned one.
