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

How can i unlock my keyboard


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

My caps wont turn off


Try this. Press: Start>Accessories>Accessibility>On Screen keyboard. Try turning it off from there. If that doesn't work:
1. Choose Start'Settings'Control Panel and double-click Regional and Language Options.
2. In the Languages tab, click the Details button.
3. In the Settings tab, you should see a button called Key Settings. It may be grayed out. If it is, click the Add button and add another keyboard layout (it doesn't matter which one). Press OK.
4. Back in the Settings tab, click to make sure your original keyboard is highlighted and press the Key Settings button.
5. Now under To turn off Caps Lock, click the radio button next to Press the Shift key. Click OK.
6. Click OK twice more to exit the other two dialog boxes.

How can i disable my verr.maj. on my acer laptop?thnk you


Hi!
This problem occurs when you inadvertently switch the language of your keyboard by simultaneously holding down the left 'ctrl' key and the left 'shift' key for 3-4 seconds.
To resolve:
Press 'ctrl' on the left side simultaneously with the left 'shift' button for 3-4 seconds; this will switch your keyboard language up to the next in queue. Keep doing this until you get the desired one (i.e. english US or whichever keyboard of preference that you have selected).
If you plan on only typing with only one type of keyboard, then you can disable the above ctrl-shift hotkey sequence and avoid this problem in the future. The instructions to do this are as follows:
1. Go to: control panel --> clock, language and region --> region and language --> keyboard and language tab --> change keyboard --> advanced key setting tab
2. Select/highlight 'between input languages'
3. click 'change key sequence'
4. Under 'switch keyboard layout' select 'not assigned'.
5. click 'ok'
6. click 'ok'
Hope that helps!

Laptop key board are messd up


If you have changed the keyboard type in 'regional and language options' you can manually pull of the keys and stick them back on where they should be. It sounds like someone has done that to your keyboard so no regional setting could fix this.
Instructions for Windows Vista
Click Start and then Control Panel In Control Panel, if you are in Classic View, click on Control Panel Home (top left corner) Open Clock, Language, and Region Click on Regional and Language Options. Click the Keyboards and Languages tab and then click Change keyboards. Under Installed services, click Add. In the Add Input Language dialog box, select the keyboard layout you would like to add from the list available and click OK. The keyboard layout you added will be included in the list. To set the new layout as your default, select it from the list. Click OK to save your changes You can switch between different input languages (= keyboard languages) by clicking on the Language Bar button or by pressing the Alt + Shift keys
