  Hi Tony,

  Because  generally all laptops seem to have different layouts  for their
  keyboards, it would be best that on a laptop to go into control panel and
  look for system. Press enter on system and you will be in the same area.

  Paul, 
   
  As a matter of interest for the future perhaps where is that pause key to be
  found on a laptop?

  Hi Paul,

  I realized now I made a "typo" this morning in my haste, please
  forgive me
  as I am only human it seems,*smiles*.
  The keystroke should be as follows:

  Winkey + pause key.
  The pause key can be found on a typical desktop keyboard  up on the
  top
  right side of your keyboard as the key to the "right side" of a
  group of
  three keys for anyone who isn't sure.

  Paul.

  Hi Paul

  Pretty sure I've already downloaded the XP Service Pack but I tried
  your
  instructions just to see.  When I press winkey plus enter from the
  open
  desktop, nothing happens and when I try to read as per your
  instructions, I
  just get the desktop info.

  Don't know what I may be doing wrong.

  Paul

  Hi Susan,

  Follow these instructions to find out what service pack you have:

  1. While on your desktop with nothing open, press and hold down
  windows key
  and then press enter key.
  Note: This will open up the system settings section of your
  computer.

  2. Next "route jaws to PC", do this by pressing and holding down the
  jaws
  key and then pressing the  jaws cursor key which is the minus key on
  your
  numpad "top right side".

  3. Now press number pad "9" to page up to the top of this screen.

  4. Finally use number pad "2" key to move down through this system
  window
  till you come to the section that indicates what windows operating
  system
  you have and which service pack if any you have installed. If you
  only have
  service pack 1 or 2 then you can install SP3.

  Why you should install a service pack could be for a number of
  reasons. A
  service pack contains updated drivers and other files that help
  enhance the
  over-all performance of your windows operating system and keep it in
  good
  order.

  Paul.
