Shapsog,
You may need to turn off the Filter Keys option. Follow the steps below to turn them off.
Go to
1. Control Panel
2. Ease Of Access Center
3. Make the keyboard easier to use
4. Uncheck the "Turn on Filter Keys" option
You also may need to Check to be sure you don't have Sticky Keys enabled.
BY PRESSING THE SHIFT KEY FIVE TIMES
Without pressing other keys, press the SHIFT key five times to enable Sticky Keys. A window will be displayed asking you if you wish to turn on Sticky Keys Clicking Yes will enable Sticky Keys or click No.
If none of these steps work you may need to replace the keyboard or plug in an external USB keyboard.

keyboard keys wont type. used on screen keyboard to type this. any suggestions?


You might have "sticky keys" so try this:
When sticky keys are enabled, users can access functions that require pressing multiple modifier keys such as "Ctrl," "Alt" and "Shift" at once by pressing one button at a time. If sticky keys are enabled, it is possible to accidentally turn them on at an unwanted time. After turning off the sticky keys, disable the feature to prevent them from accidentally turning on again.

    • Press the "Shift" button five times in a row to turn off sticky keys.

    • Open the "Start" menu and then click "Control Panel."

    • Click "Ease of Access Center" from within the Control Panel window.

    • Click "Make The Keyboard Easier To Use" from within the Ease of Access Center window.

    • Remove the check-mark beside "Turn On Sticky Keys" to prevent sticky keys from being accidentally turned on.

    • Click "Apply" to save your changes and then click "OK" to close the window.
Hope this helps. Good Luck!

The.spacebar.stopped..working.



If your space bar isn't responding when you press it, or if it responds sluggishly, it's possible that you have inadvertently enabled the "Sticky Keys" or "Filter Keys" accessibility option in Windows.


When these options are enabled, your keyboard response time will be dramatically slowed and may require more than one tap to register a keystroke.


Fortunately, it's easy to disable these functions and return your keyboard to normal working order.


Click "Start" and select "All Programs."


Click "Accessories" and select "Ease of Access."

Click "Ease of Access Center."


Click "Make Keyboard Easier to Use."


Click "Set Up Sticky Keys." Deselect the checkbox that says "Turn on Sticky Keys When Shift is Pressed Five Times." Make sure the box that says "Turn on Sticky Keys" is not checked. Click "OK" to save your changes.


Click "Set Up Filter Keys." Uncheck the box that says "Turn on Filter Keys."

Click on the checkbox next to "Turn On Filter Keys When Right Shift Is Pressed For 8 Seconds" to deselect it. Click "OK" to save your changes.


Click "OK" again to save all of the keyboard accessibility changes you have made.


Hope this helps

Need to reset a VeriFone 3750 v501 to its original default state. The program password has been changed and I cannot access to update


Turn off and unplug the Verifone 3750. Wait for five seconds or so and then plug it back in. This will automatically reset the Verifone 3750 and it will reboot and restart.

Reset the shift. Resetting the shift is another reset option available for Omni. Press "Shift," then "#," followed by "1" to reset and change the shift.

Press "Shift," then "#," then "2" to stop a change and keep the shift on the current settings.
Below is your user/install manuals, it's all in there so download each copy for any time later.
