    Thanks, I don't know if it ever did work, so I was hoping it was just something I could go in and configure.

Return key doesnt work and I it won't let me print g or h


This one sounds like the keyboard may have some issues. If so, it is not something you normally can fix yourself. I would suggest you take this one to a qualified service shop for evaluation.

My keyoard delays typing


This is a very odd issue, but not hard at all to fix. I had a similar issue in Windows XP. Now first of all, as with all of those weird and unusual Windows problems, it leads to the Windows Registry. Now, first a little disclaimer:

Modifying the registry can cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Cannot guarantee that problems resulting from modifications to the registry can be solved. Use the information provided at your own risk.

Now on with the issue at hand.

First of all, open regedit by one of the following actions:

Windows XP/2003/2000 Users: Open the Start Menu and click on "Run." Then type "regedit" without the quotes in the dialogue and press the Enter key.

Windows Vista and 7 Users: In the search bar at the bottom of the Start Menu, type "regedit." It should appear in the search list above. Right mouse click it and select "Run As Administrator," then, confirm and say "Yes" or "Allow" to the User Account Control dialogues.

The rest from this point is pretty straight forward.

Click the plus sign or drop down arrow next to HKEY_CURRENT_USER, then the plus sign or drop arrow next to Control Panel. Look for the key which will look like a folder marked "Keyboard." There are 2 ways this entry might be causing an issue. If it is there, it is corrupted. The second way might be that the key is non-existant.

If the key is there, go ahead at this point, right mouse click it and click "Delete" and then "Yes." Now, simply recreate the key or folder only by right mouse clicking the Control Panel key and selecting "New" and then "Key" and name the key "Keyboard" without the quotes.

Keep regedit open for a test and do not close it yet. Make sure that you have the Keyboard key entry that you just created highlighted

If the key does not key does not exist, simply create the key or folder only by right mouse clicking the Control Panel key and selecting "New" and then "Key" and name the key "Keyboard" without the quotes.

Keep regedit open for a test and do not close it yet. Make sure that you have the Keyboard key entry that you just created highlighted

Now, go ahead and open Control Panel from the Start Menu.

For those of you in Category View, you want to click on "Printers and Other Hardware" and then double click on "Keyboard." For those of you in Classic View, you want to simply double click on "Keyboard."

Now, go ahead and set your sliders, then click "Apply" and then "Ok." Click back again on regedit and then the F5 key on your keyboard. 2 New string value entries should appear marked "KeyboardDelay" and "KeyboardSpeed" with numbers trailing them. Make sure that these entries are there, then, close regedit.

Go ahead now and look back at the Keyboard control panel applet and remember the settings that you just made. Now, restart or log off of your computer and log back in. Go back to Control Panel from the Start Menu and open the Keyboard applet again and make sure that the settings are where you left them.

This should definately fix the issue at hand and allow the settings to stay where they are. It is yet unknown what exactly may cause this entry to become deleted or corrupted, but, it happens every once in a while on some computers.

Replace the keyboard -- nobody "fixes" laptop keyboards, due to the lower cost of replacing it.

Some keys on my laptop dont work


Trying a desktop keyboard is useful for determining if it is a keyboard problem or a software problem. This usualy happens if some liquid has gotten into the keyboard, but you said thats not possible. Try to boot into bios, the first screen that pops up when you boot, on a toshiba it is usually pressing F1 or Del. then if your Arrow keys don't work there, you need a new keyboard.

Nothing works keyboard locked ? please help on-screen keyboard only


Hello Friend, Hold shift down both left and right shift key at the same time (do this for several seconds), it somehow solved the problem. Hopefully that fixed the issue. Also, go to control panel, click on accessibility options..in the keyboard tab, click on the settings buttons for sticky keys, filter keys and toggle keys and deselect the option to use shortcut.
Hope this Helped you..Thanks for Using FixYa..

Instead of getting the @ symbol when I press shift +2 i get "


you need to hold down ctrl and function on the left side of your keyboard, and then hit the shift key on the right side of your keyboard. Then let go of right shift while still holding down the control and function keys, and then hit right shift again.

these blue keys are french keys. if you change your keyboard settings to english US or UK, it will get rid of the blue functions, but for some reason, they tend to turn themslves back on again after time. Most likely due to automatic updates followed by an auto restart. Also, I find that the issue only arises if I am in my hotmail account.....no issue in Word docs.

May volume keys on my keyboard are not responding. My speaker/headset volume is inaudible. whenever I press the volume keys on my keyboard, nothing happens. the same as when i click the volume symbol on...


They are actually two separate issues:
I will assume that you have funtioning speakers or headset.
1) first fix your main audio problem by re-installing your sound card driver that would normally come with your PC/Laptop or (external) Sound Card. This should fix the issue with your software volume control
2) second fix your Keyboard volume control: if after fixing your audio system driver previously, this is still not working, then you will need to re-install your Keyboard 'soft' key driver that control the extended function of your specific keyboard: the driver may also be included as part of your PCLaptop but may also have come with a 'third party' non-orininal keyboard.
Hope it helps & good luck!
