    Cat VS Keyboard

    Don't laugh! My cat layed on my keyboard-now I don't have any sound. It says my speakers are muted. Volume control doesn't do anything. What key did she press to turn off my speakers? I asked her but she can't remember

    If you have a volume + and - on your keyboard, there should be another key right next to it that has a line through the speaker. This actually turns the volume off and on (on my keyboard, anyway).

    The key right after F12 (no number) on mine has the volume icon with an "X" through it, so I assume that means it can be muted...

    Maybe you could teach your cat to walk down the piano keys instead.

    That sounds like something my cats would do - The like to watch the cursor on the screen and try to catch it. Silly cats - they should be watching the mouse!

    LOL- these cats are so independent and don't follow the rules! Did you tell her that whatever she does in the computer has to leave it the way she found it? LOL
    :-( I wish I was a full time quilter!

    I have dogs that so far have never learned to get up onto any of the furniture. My sister's Schitzu and cat both got on her computer keyboard and into a fight. Had to get new keyboard, cat somehow ripped a claw and so did the dog. Expensive day for her at the vet's ofc. She got a different desk where the keyboard fits under.

    I have no clue how to fix it -- I always call my son after the cat pretends she's a terrorist typist. Both my son and DIL have received some ''encoded messages'' from Mindy Sue. DIL says they are calls to tattle on me for not jumping fast enough when her food bowl is empty, lets just say my fur babies have me trained real good : )
