I think you have never cleaned the disk anytime since you purchased the computer.
temporary internet files
uninstall all the unwanted software
run anti-spyware
run anti-virus
clean the million icons on your desktop
update operating system patches
run disk tools ( defragmentation, error correction )

and finally dont forget to clean the recycle bin.
Also if you have an option to look at task manager and check the memory used and processes running, it will give you more insight on what processes are responsible for this hang problem but ofcourse you have to find a way to do that before it hangs. dont click on desktop as u said this is causing it to hang.
If this doesnt help, buy a hammer from walmart :)

There are supposedly ways to do it, but they require using TCPMP like you said. I will post the exact instructions below. Windows CE is actually what is used on PDA's and Phones and isnt ideal for a mini laptop or netbook. Do you use your netbook for mainly light stuff like internet and word processing? I would suggest going with a Linux OS like Ubuntu, it runs very fast on light resources and you can load everything you need, and for free. Here are the instructions for TCPMP if you want to try it again:

  • 1

  • Download TCPMP on your Windows CE browser (see link in Resources section).

  • 2

    Double-click the file once the download has finished to begin installing the media player to your Windows CE device. If prompted for an installation directory, click "Main Memory."

  • 3

    Download FlashVideoBundle (see link in Resources section), then double-click the file to install it. Choose the same location to install this file.

  • 4

    Turn your Windows CE device on and off. Click "Start," then "Programs." Click "Video Sites" to load up a list of compatible video sites (including YouTube). Click "TCPMP" to load the settings for your player. Change any of the settings to your personal preference, then click "OK."

  • 5

    Watch YouTube videos on your Windows CE device as you normally would on a full version of windows.

    Try compressed air to remove the dirt and dust underneath the keys. If it does not work then it’s a spyware issue, try downloading freeware program to find and eliminate it. Hope that will work.
    laptop have a lot of various switches to turn stuff on or off if you press the right combo of keys try pressing you Fn function button down and try the keys that are not working .

    Let us know if you have something more to know else accept the suggestion.
    Thank You for contacting
