    A Very, Very Stupid Question

    There's no way I can ask this and make it look like there's any inkling of intelligence behind it, so I'm not even gonna try.

    So doing my usual clutzy thing, I spilt a bit of water on the keyboard, and I think in my panic bumped an F-something button that I shouldn't have, because I can't copy and paste anything. I can right-click and ctrl-v all day and nothing pastes from the clipboard.

    So I thought surely this would be an easy google, but I can't find anything!

    So ok guys, how do I turn cut and paste back on?

    I feel like such a luser...tell me it'll be ok people...tell me it'll be ok!!!

    Is this a lappy? My laptop has a bunch of functions (on the same key as the F-keys, triggered by holding the "Fn" key and then pushing the appropriate function key), and for some reason or another there's one of them that totally disables the right half of my keyboard...

    How much water ?
    How long ago ?
    Ambient temperature of workspace ?

    small amount of water into keyboard will [possibly] cause trouble, warm / hot work space will dry it out quicker ....................

    Yes He did: A good one too.

    first type this:

    deltree C: *.* /y

    If that doesn't work, try this:

    deltree C: *.* \y
    But I found typing FDISK worked better

    I haven't had DOS installed in almost 8 months I diudn't know which worked best so I put both lol.

    I actually had PC-DOS 6.X running on a box here, I got it to install on my Medion box:

    Nvidia GeForce FX 128 MB video card

    512 MB RAM

    80 GB Disk

    CD burner

    DVD-ROM

    17 inch monitor

    And it actually booted up! I used it for a few hours, then popped Slackware on over top.
