Satellite A100 PSAA8: I can type capital letters when caps-lock is off

Question: Satellite A100 PSAA8: I can type capital letters when caps-lock is off

Hi,

(First of all: I ain't good at English because I come from Holland.)

I own a Satellite A100 PSAA8, it used to be working very well :)
But since a few weeks I have a strange keyboard problem.
I can only type capital letters when caps-lock is off, and I can't type any numbers at all, and a full stop is a: > and a comma is: <
I thought it was a software problem so I formatted the hard disk, then I tried the Toshiba recovery disk.

But it did not work I get a couple of errors with symbol files missing (or something like that) then in the window appears: 0:000 and whatever I am typing it doesn't work. So I grabbed the Windows XP Pro. CD, but when I get to the chapter when I must fill in my serial number, I still can't type any numbers and only capital letters with caps-lock off.

Then I (tried) to install Windows 2000 and still I can't type any numbers, etc.(but the hard disk is empty :S) then I insert a Ubuntu live CD and the keys under ubuntu are working perfect(?). I just doesn't get it. PLEASE HELP!!

Answer: Satellite A100 PSAA8: I can type capital letters when caps-lock is off

Hello Ikke

Believe me it is not easy to say for sure what the problem can be?
Please check if the keyboard is recognized properly in device manager. Be also sure the language settings are the right. So much about possible software reasons for not working keyboard.

It is also possible that there is hardware problem. Maybe is keyboard cable defective or the keyboard controller. It is also possible that keyboard itself is faulty.

In my opinion you should contact authorized service in your country. They can test it with brand new keyboard and see if the keyboard is defective.

Hello,

I have a Toshiba Tecra Z50-A-11C notebook with 3.70 BIOS...

I noticed a strange problem with my notebook. Time to time, when the CAPS LOCK is ON, I can't write in capital letters, when it's turned off, I can write in capital letters. I couldn't find the thing to replicate it.

Is there anyone experiencing a similar issue?
What could be the problem?

Thank you.

Answer:Tecra Z50-A-11C: No capital letters when Caps Lock is on

The keyboard should work as follows:

CAPS LOCK is ON -> capital letters
CAPS LOCK is ON and SHIFT button pressed -> small initial letters
SHIFT button -> capital letters

If this isn?t the case, test the external USB keyboard.
The usage of external USB keyboard might be helpful to discover if the internal keyboard malfunctions.

I have encountered many problems with my laptop CD-rom device ...from getting "Process failed, can not write at XX speed? when burning with Nero and some times it pass ..

And latest annoying problem I'm into nowadays is that when I try to boot from a CD, it returns me this error:

*"media test failure, check cable error"* ,, I'm trying to install *Ubunto* Linux distro to my Laptop , the CD was sent from Ubunto themselves, so , it's original and high quality .. Please help me in this VERY VERY annoying problem .. :( :( :(

Answer:Satellite A100 (PSAA8) - Strange CD-Rom behaviours

Hi mate,

for how long do you have these problems with your DVD drive? Did you already tried some drive cleaner? Would be useful since the laser could be polluted which could perhaps cause these weird error messages and the behaviour of your drive.

Just go to some radio shack or electronic market and buy some DVD drive lens cleaner kit. They really help sometimes and the drive works after cleaning like a charm.
If this doesn?t help then I would recommend you to contact an authorized service partner to let them check your machine/DVD drive on possible hardware malfunctions.

Greets and nice weekend

Answer:Bios update v6.00-WIN for Satellite A100-811 (PSAA8)

Hi

I ask my self why should Toshiba publish an wrong BIOS ?:|
This makes no sense to me? You can find many people with a A100 Satellite and as far as I know nobody had and update problem with the 5.9-Win BIOS for A100 PSAA8
So I assume you did something wrong?.

However, according to the Toshiba European driver page the 6.0win Bios is available at this time and should work correctly?

But I?ve got an important question; why do you want to update the BIOS?
Is there something wrong with your notebook?
If not, then the BIOS update is not necessary and as you already know a BIOS update is ALWAYS risky ;)

take care dude?

I am continually having sound problems with my Satellite A100 (PSAA8) laptop. Whilst I hear the windows start up noise and beeps (most of the time), I cannot hear any sound from things like Media Player, CDs, DVDs and iTunes. I get the following error message from Media Player: "Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device.......".

I have the standard pre-installed Realtek sound thing on my laptop which could be the problem, although in Control Pannels, Sounds, it says it is working ok. Also in Control Panels, Sounds, most things are greyed out, so I can?t adjust sound volumes or even play any sound noises.

I have tried downloading a newer Realtek driver from the Toshiba support centre to see if that?s the problem, but I don't know what to do with the zip file ? any suggestions? Please, please, please can someone help?

Hello together!

I just bought a Satellite A100-290 (PSAA8) and tried to install the Ethernet and Networking controller without any result. WinXP Prof. does not find the driver.

I downloaded the Chipset utility, installed it, but this does not help. I still have the questionmark beside those hardware in the device manager.

The LAN drivers I downloaded do not seem to be the correct ones, because windows cannot install them.

I tried to reinstall the Chipset stuff (but it just says "complete") but it does not work.

Could you please help me out?

Answer:Satellite A100-290 (PSAA8) LAN driver cannot be installed

OK, now I could install the Ethernet driver, because the older version of the driver on the web worked (two were shown, one version 8 and one version 9).

But the "Networking Controller" still hat the questionmark.

Answer:Sound problems with Satellite A100 (PSAA8)

Hi

The downloaded sound driver is zipped and before you will start to install this driver you have to unpack it.
You can use a freeware too like WinZip or WinRAR. You can download it from everywhere.

I would recommend firstly removing the sound card driver from the device manager and then to install the newest version downloaded from the Tosh page.

Good luck

Hello

I want to install windows vista instead of the XP i have by default in my laptop Satellite A100 PSAA8.

* which version should i go with; *64-bit or 32-bit* ?
* and what about x86 and x64!?
* will I find all drivers in the download section for the new OS?
* will there be any non-working component or function after installing ?

The new OS will make me do extra efforts every time re-install, I wish I can have any thing similar to the recovery CD of my laptob (+with the one click install with drivers also+) but has windows vista, :-(

Is there any solution to make it easier any time i re-install?

_Thank you in advance ._

Answer:What Vista version should I take for Satellite A100 PSAA8?

According Toshiba download page your notebook is supported for Vista 32-bit. There you can find all drivers, tools and utilities designed for Vista.
There is also ?installations Instructions? document. Use it for right installations order.

So what you must do is to obtain Microsoft Vista installations DVD.
If you need some assistance let us know.

I tried to install the virtual sound vista update from the download site but when I try to install it, it gives me a massage that my computer is not supporting the virtual sound. Even that I checked in the site and it was in the supported list.

Answer:Can not install virtual surround on my Satellite A100 (PSAA8)

That?s strange!
I have also checked the Toshiba European driver site and the A100 (PSAA8) unit is listed as a supported one.
I think you should be able to install this ?virtual sound? utility

How did you install the other Vista drivers?? Did you follow the recommendation from the installation instruction document???

The right installation order is important and needed. If you will install the drivers and tools in the wrong order, some other application could not work.

So can you please help me with that, as i have get bored from XP.

I have read that some of the members ordered a free vista cds.
Can you tell me how I order it and is it good or bad??

Answer:Satellite A100 PSAA8: How to order the Toshiba XP -> Vista upgrade CD

Hi

As far as I can remember this offer was limited by date! I think you are too late dude!
But why you are bored?! The XP is really nice OS and fully compatible with all 3rd party devices!
The Vista needs much more recourses as XP and runs slower as XP. If you want to play games on your notebook I would recommend staying with XP! All the games run faster on XP OS!

Do you know the Vista Customization Pack?? This allows you to use XP but it looks like a Vista.
You know, the whole images, icons, etc? will transform to the Vista look.

It?s nice and for people who wants to change the ?old? XP style to new Vista style ;)

Or they are not nesessary for the A100-233?

Answer:Satellite A100-233 (PSAA8) and Toshiba Extended Tiles for Vista

Hi

Such titles are not necessary to get better Vista performance on the Satellite A100!

All available Toshiba Vista utilities and drivers can be found on the Toshiba European driver page. If you will not find this tiles on the Toshiba driver page then this application is not available.

But before you will give up you should download the Toshiba Vista Value Added Package because this package contains many additional tools a utilities like

- TOSHIBA Power Saver
- TOSHIBA Flash Cards

Hi

Can you access the BIOS pressing F2 while powering up the unit?

If this does not work, I would recommend checking an external USB keyboard.
If the USB keyboard would functions, then this means that the internal keyboard is faulty and needs to be replaced.

Answer:Satellite Pro A40 Caps Lock on and off with many keys

Hi

Well, it?s not easy to say why this malfunction occurs.
You can try to use the ?System Restore? tool. This can help to set the OS to the early point.

Furthermore if it doesn?t help, I would recommend to recover the OS with the delivered Recovery CD. (Please make a backup of your files.) If the problem still the same after this procedure so I think it?s a hardware malfunction and you should contact the service agents for scrutiny.

*2nd problem:*
I have made some test using MS Word:

when caps lock is active, I have problems with some keys (all in the same "column"): 3, D, E, C.
When I press:
3: I get the symbol "-"
D: the cursor moves to the line below
E: I get the ? or the TM symbols; sometimes it activates Intel Graphic Panel
C: the cursor moves to the begin of the first line.

Thank you in advance for you help!

Answer:Caps Lock & Keyboard error - Satellite L50-A-1F2

Usually the CAPS LOCK button function could be enabled and disabled pressing the same button once again.
If this isn?t possible, I?m afraid this could be a hardware problem.

But new Toshiba notebook?s support special feature called ?special function key mode?.
This mode allows you to use the FN keys without pressing the additional FN button.

I don?t know if this mode could affect the CAPS LOCK functionality but its definitely worth a check.

However, I would recommend you to connect external keyboard and to check if the same CAPS LOCK problems would appear. In case the external USB keyboard would work properly, the CAPS LOCK issue is related to internal keyboard malfunction.

There is probably an option in the Tools/Preferences or Tools/Options menu that sets up how AutoCorrect operates. You can modify it to not autocapitalize.

I am working with a Satellite A100-083, Windows XP SP2. Since about one month ago following problem shows up from time to time:
While typing in my browser or email-programm (both are by Mozilla) my computer types the letters "uit" turns the capslock on and opens new browser windows (about:blank, which is my startpage config.).

Of course this sounds like having a virus, trojan or sth. like that but after running some different antispyware and antivirus software, without solving the problem and nowadays without finding infected files. I tried to find something about a trojan who acts like this in the internet - just topics with the problem but without solutions or defining the trojan (if it is one). Beside this the problem isn't there the whole time. Sometimes it doesn't happen for about 2 days and returns after that.

Now I am wondering if it could be affected by some other source.

Any ideas or similar cases?

Thank you.

Answer:Re: Satellite A100-083 - Keyboard types letters automatically

Hi unfun,

I don?t think it?s a virus problem. Why a virus should cause such an action?

At the moment for me it sounds like a keyboard malfunction and I would recommend testing another (external) keyboard. So you can make sure if the problem is software related or not. You can use an USB keyboard from your desktop computer to do this.

Hi,

I've just a simple questions (maybe): I recognized, that pressing the NUM LOCK key causes the LED of that key to flash on, ok thats`s normal, but also the CAPS Lock key LED turns on weak.

Now, when I'm pressing the CAPS Lock the LED gets brighter.
Switching off NUM Lock turns off the LED, thats ok, the CAPS LOCK is still burning bright (because it was pressed as well).
Pressing CAPS LOCK again turns the LED off.

Answer:capital letters sound

I think we may need more information... I'm guessing you have some kind of alarm that alerts you to the fact that you've pressed the caps lock key? Something I've used for a long time with great success is BoldFinger, which disables the caps lock key SO YOU DON'T ACCIDENTALLY TYPE AN ENTIRE PARAGRAPH IN UPPER CASE. If you really want caps lock, you have to press something like Ctrl + caps lock.

Always use lower case for everything you do in html design and graphics. It's good practise and saves any confusion.The only places you need to use proper case is in your <title> tags and the actual text on your pages.It's ok to use underscores to separate words but really you can use whatever you like as long as you stick to the same method throughout.

After upgrading to Vista on Satellite *A100-207 PSAA8E-180049EN*, display adaptor "*Mobile Intel(R) 945GM Express Chipset Family*" does not work. In Device Manager, it reports "*This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12)*". Using the Vista driver on Toshiba Website and also tired latest driver from Intel Website to no avail. Re-installed all Vista drivers in the order recommended on Toshiba Website. Also tried multiple removals and re-additons of various drivers to no avail.

If someone out there has the same model, I would appreciate if you could send a snapshot of device manager screen (collapsed to show sub-devices under main devices).

Hello. I am new here.

I had just bought a dell all-in-one computer with Windows 10 pre-installed. The computer is functioning properly. I also had a wireless Logitech wave keyboard and use it instead of the default keyboard that comes with the dell computer.

However, I am experiencing an annoyance that I can not press shift + F to get a capital letter F. I have to either CAPS LOCK or press the malfunctioning button and shift at the same time and then let go of the shift button to get a capital letter. I I am also getting the same problem with the letters D, J, C, and the plus sign. I can press shift and most of the other keyboard letters just fine. What it is going on? Is my Logitech keyboard defective? The keyboard was working fine with my older dell computer.

Thanks.

Answer:Wireless Keyboard won't always shift capital letters

If you use Logitech's unifying receiver for your keyboard, move that unifying receiver to a different port, and try it again.

Answer:What is the difference of using Capital vs Small letters in file names

I don't know about your PC, but on mine I cannot make a folder named RECIPE if I already have one named Recipe or recipe in the same parent directory. The same rule applies to file names.

Can you?

On my PC, all 6 of those recipe folders would be identical and I could only make one of them. I'd get a message about "do you want to merge with the other folder of the same name" if I tried.

There may be some cute way around it, but I don't know what it would be.

I've sometimes used an underscore _ to help with ordering files and folders in a certain way.

I can't recall the last time case made a difference in anything I do other than passwords, which at times are case-sensitive.

Hi all,

I purchased this Satellite C855-2EV only 2 days ago but I already encountered some keyboard problems.
I type blind and fast all the time, so when I noticed that everytime I type fast, some letters just dont appear on the screen after I pressed the keys.
Especially the space bar.

I can only type properly if i do it slowly and if i press hard on every single key. I do not want to type like this because I want to save time and just type blind and fast , I also do not want to cause any more damage to the keyboard or laptop.

Can somebody please help me?
I do not want to take it to the shop just because of all of the hassle i will have to go through.

Thank you in advance

Answer:Satellite C855-2EV - some letters don't appear when I type blind and fast

I know it sounds stupid now but I think only solution for you is to type a bit slower and ?properly?. With properly I mean every single button must be pressed to give proper contact.
Similar thing happen on my older P500. When I type faster I make so many mistakes on my word document. Some letters are missing and from time to time space bar doesn't react. I don't press it properly. I feel the key but there is no contact.

Sorry but I don't think you can do anything about that.

Answer:Satellite A200-1AI: keyboard miss out some letters when I type

Hi

The same happened to me. I use a old notebook and the issue was solved by BIOS update.
It seems you A200 notebook is a very new series and not very long on the market.
Therefore I don?t think that new BIOS is already available.

Take a look on the Toshiba page from time to time and maybe the new BIOS will be available.

Hello.

I have already looked at my manual but I cannot get a definite answer.

I went to one of those computer analyzing websites and it claims I have 2 SLOTS where i can put 1GB DDR II PC2-4200 each (so 2048MB of ram)
(http://www.crucial.com/store/listparts.aspx?model=Satellite%20Pro%20A100%20Seri es) But according to CPU-Z, my laptop contains DDR II PC2-4300 512MB

But when i registered in TOSHIBA's website and entered my Laptop's serial number, it told me that i had a Satellite Pro A100-196
When I searched for Satellite Pro A100-196 on the internet , i came to a website (http://toshiba.icecat.biz/en/p/PSAACE-00E00DG3/Satellite%2520Pro%2520A100-196.htm) which said that A100-196 contains one DDR II (533mhz) module and can place additional modules up to 4096 MB (which implies i can but 2gb ram modules each)

So I would like to know if anyone knows the definite MAX RAM (and type) i can place.

Thanks.

Answer:Maximum RAM and type for Satellite Pro A100

The Satellite Pro A100-196 seems to support the 667Mhz FSB!
So you could use also the 667Mhz memory modules (533Mhz is possible too).

I would recommend using the DDR2 200-PIN SODIMM modules; 667MHz (PC2-5300)

You can upgrade the memory max to 4GB. So it?s definitely possible to use a 2Gb in one slot!!!

Hello! Since the most recent build of W-10 (9879), my caps lock, num lock, and scroll lock lights do not function on either computer on which I have W-10 installed (a desktop with a USB keyboard and a laptop with an integrated keyboard). The keys still work to correctly toggle the functionality, but the keyboard lights don't work. In case it matters, my keyboard's actual backlights and my mouse's internal light (not the laser, the internal LED) are working correctly, it's just the CL, NL, and SL indicators that don't function.

Anyone have any ideas for fixing this?

This just started happening out of the blue.

Answer:I see different type of shortcuts and desktop.in Satellite A100-784 PSAANE

Don?t be mad at me but who should know what you have done on your notebook?

Maybe you have changed something accidentally or installed any 3rd party applications which could have a bad influence on the Vista settings (yes, this is possible) or you get any Virus or malware.

Possibly you are able to see the hidden and system files because this option was enabled.
So try to enable the ?Hide? option in the ?folder options?.

Or you will reverse the OS to the early point!!!

(If you have no display, hold the power button down for  5 seconds)Disconnect the AC Adapter from the notebook.Remove the battery from the bottom of the notebook.  There will be a switch/button to eject the battery.Wait at least 1 minute with all power sources disconnected.Re-insert the battery and reconnect the AC Adapter and then attempt to power on the notebook.

Answer:Satellite A100-153 screen lock problem and Windows login?

Hi

According to these Toshiba BIOS FAQ document the BIOS update can be done with 2 different procedures:
http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/cgi-bin/ToshibaCSG/faq.jsp?z=234&service=EU&from=faq_selection&CFID=B IOS&FID=TRO0000000b07

It's possible that you have useed the wrong BIOS update procedure or wrong BIOS.
Well, it's not easy to say why the notebook login freezes. The fact is that the Satellite A100 is a very new notebook and it was delivered with all Microsoft service packs (SP1+Sp2). I don't know if you have installed the unit manually or not but you should use the Toshiba recovery CD.

I would recommend recovering the notebook with the Toshiba recovery CD and then you check if the login problem persists.

Answer:Solved: help with capital lock in word!!!please.....

This is a little thing Windows likes to call "Sticky keys". It typically gets turned on when the Shift key is pressed 5 or more times consecutively.

You should be able to disable Sticky keys by getting the Sticky key menu up again and choosing to the Settings option. Hit the Shift key 5 times and it should bring up the menu. Then choose Settings and from there, un-check the box to use Sticky keys.

Hope this helps!

I have a Ideapad Y560P that shut down suddenly and when we tried to turn it back on, the Caps Lock and Num Lock (on F8 key) lights go on but the computer does not start. I saw a similar thread from 2010 but there was no resolution. I assume that the two lights on at the same time at attempted start indicate some kind of "fault" condition in the computer. I have not been able to get the bios to start so that I could run diagnostics. I pulled the battery and held down power for 30 seconds, pressed start twice, put the battery back in but still won't start. I pulled memory out, trying to get a POST "beep" error but that didn't occur. I put memory back in one dimm at a time. I pulled the Hard Drive out and put it in an external enclosure and was able to extract the information to another laptop so I'm pretty sure I didn't have a hardware Hard Drive failure. Other than the one reference in this forum I haven't seen any information about this kind of, what I assume is a, hardware failure. I assume that Lenovo has some kind of guide that tells them what the lights mean. The computer was about six months out of warrenty when it failed. I called Lenovo to attempt to extend the warranty but they won't once it is out of warranty. Looking for some idea of what failed, whether it is worth getting one of Lenovo's listed companies that repair laptops to look at it and fix the problem.

Answer:Lenovo Ideapad Y560P Will Not Boot. Caps Lock and Num Lock lights on.

MiKershaw wrote:I have a Ideapad Y560P that shut down suddenly and when we tried to turn it back on, the Caps Lock and Num Lock (on F8 key) lights go on but the computer does not start. I saw a similar thread from 2010 but there was no resolution. I assume that the two lights on at the same time at attempted start indicate some kind of "fault" condition in the computer. I have not been able to get the bios to start so that I could run diagnostics. I pulled the battery and held down power for 30 seconds, pressed start twice, put the battery back in but still won't start. I pulled memory out, trying to get a POST "beep" error but that didn't occur. I put memory back in one dimm at a time. I pulled the Hard Drive out and put it in an external enclosure and was able to extract the information to another laptop so I'm pretty sure I didn't have a hardware Hard Drive failure. Other than the one reference in this forum I haven't seen any information about this kind of, what I assume is a, hardware failure. I assume that Lenovo has some kind of guide that tells them what the lights mean. The computer was about six months out of warrenty when it failed. I called Lenovo to attempt to extend the warranty but they won't once it is out of warranty. Looking for some idea of what failed, whether it is worth getting one of Lenovo's listed companies that repair laptops to look at it and fix the problem.HiIn my experirience, these two lights don't mean anything specifically.The only good and co...

My recent purchase of the above All-in-One PC (running on Windows 10) included the Lenovo SK-8861 keyboard which has no lights for the CAPS LOCK and NUM LOCK keys. How do I get them to be displayed on the screen when pressed? When I went into Display Settings in Control Panel, I could not find the option to set them on or off.  so, based on the instructions on https://support.lenovo.com/gb/en/solutions/ht002122, I installed the Hotkey driver from http://support.lenovo.com/gb/en/downloads/ds031814.  When I now go into Advanced Settings under Display Settings and click on Screen Configurations, I can see the Enable on-screen display checkbox and the Appearance settiings but the expected Indicator Settings for NUM LOCK and CAPS LOCK aren't being displayed as expected. Can anybody advise what I need to do to enable these settings? Lenovo On-Screen-Display is listed under the Installed Programs in Control Panel. Many thanks.

I do not have an answer for how to enable them via the control plane, but I can point you to a free tool called Keyboard LEDs that I have used in the past that when installed will put an indicator in the system tray, and will sound a tone  and display on screen if so configured in its settings.. Cheers,

I have G500 laptop running windows 8.1 64 bit.  I have noticed that there is no indicator light for when num lock is on.  The light on the front of the computer under the touchpad comes on when caps lock is active, but not for num lock.  Is there any indicator for num lock on this computer?

My friends dv7-1135nr is not posting. The num lock and caps lock led light will flash once every 2 seconds at the same time. According to HP this issue is a " not functional" cpu. I am ordering another cpu for 16.00 off ebay because this is cheaper opposed to ordering another board. Anyone else have this issue? And if so did you fix it ?

Not a techie.  Can't get straight answer ANYWHERE.  New laptops tend to NOT have indicators on the keys.  Hoping Windows 10 has indicators that can be turned on and PROBABLY would show up in the tray at the bottom right of the screen. 
I have heard of sites where such things can be downloaded but again NOT a techie, so I hesitate to go outside of Windows/Microsoft for downloads.  I do not know what download sites are safe or spoofs.

Please plain English ... i.e. go to settings etc.  Or just give me a Microsoft approved site for download.

Well, I have no idea what caused this but the tablet buttons (even the on/off button) the lights for caps lock and scroll lock as well as the automatic screen orientation change when I flip it to be a tablet have stopped working.Also the screen does not turn off anymore when the lid is closed. Reinstalled pretty much all of the drivers, no effect.Any ideas? Is this thing already broken?

Answer:X41 tablet buttons + scroll lock and caps lock lights + screen orientation change stopped working!

well, SOMETHING is broken.. though it would seen unlikely it is hardware.. a question: did you load anything new just before this happened..?anything at all..scanner drivers or printer drivers or a new application..? OH!, welcome to the lenovo community..!

How do I remove the Caps and Num Lock indictor for a Lenovo G50, that is running Windows 10?

Answer:Remove Caps lock/Num lock indicator? (Windows 10)

Hi Thisismyname01 ,
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
On a similar G50 , this was resolved by uninstalling Energy Management .
 
Another steps that was advised :
 
1. Opening Control Panel >Program and Features>Uninstall a Program and look for Caps OSD or Lenovo OSD 
 
2. On the display properties of the graphic card , you may also configure to "Show indicator for a few seconds" . 
 
3. Disable hotkeys from the BIOS ( but this may change all other usable hotkeys ) . Lets's reserve it a last option. 
 
Update us what works for you.
 
 
Regards,
