Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop
When i press a button it makes a click sound before typing. started after my son held down the shift key to long & a window opened.
If typing the keys make a clicking sound and you can't type the same key twice, you need to turn off filterkeys by press and hold the right shift key for 4 seconds. OR you can go to Control Panel, search for Ease of access. Click on Hear a tone when keys are pressed. Clear the check box Turn on Filter Keys

Recognize that you have a locked keyboard.
If your PC computer is not responding to keystrokes or is responding very slowly, you could have a locked keyboard.
Use your mouse to move the pointer over the "Start" button.
Use the left-click button to bring up the "Start" pop-up menu.
Position the pointer over "Settings" and use the left-click button to select. T
hen select "Control Panel." On some versions of PC operating systems, you can select "Control Panel" directly from the "Start" menu.
Select "Accessibility Options" to bring up another menu, then select "Keyboard."
You'll see three options that have check boxes.
Make sure each check box does not have a check mark in it.
The three options are "StickeyKeys," "FilterKeys" and "ToggleKeys."
Note that these options can become checked if the keyboard operator has repeatedly depressed the "Shift" key in rapid succession--or if the "Shift" key is held down for longer than eight seconds.
If the keyboard is still not responding, the problem could be that the computer has lost communication with the keyboard.
Turn off the computer.
Disconnect the power supply.
Remove and then reconnect the keyboard cable, then reconnect the power supply.
Turn the computer on.
This will reboot the computer, allowing it to recognize the keyboard.
hope this helps
