Re: keyboard is reacting slow
Hi I think you have a sticky key problem. Go to control panel/ accessibilty
options/accessibility options and then confirm all the settings
with some friend. Fix your settings in the control panel. Especially all the keys like sticky key, togglekey and filter key. Try them out.

Holding down shift key for more than 8 seconds will lock the keyboard and it will stop responding. But if you keep pressing keys for few seconds you would be able to type in but it will be very slow. Plus, it will produce a nasty sound.
To get around this, go to start and then settings, then control panel and then finally accessibility options. Make sure all the 3 boxes are unchecked.
Well, do you mean only the keyboard is locked? Can you boot the system properly? Is the mouse working? Which Operating System is running on your Laptop?
Here are a couple solutions you can try before you let me know the above queries.
1. Press and hold down the Windows Logo key on the keyboard while pressing the L key on the keyboard once. In other words, Press Windows Key + L once. If this doesn't work, don't forget to include the Fn key while pressing these two keys. Windows+Fn+L. Still nothing?
2. Turn off the Machine, remove the battery and unplug the charger. Leave it for at least 10 seconds, you can press the power On button on the laptop without the battery and the charger installed/plugged in. Now re-install the battery, and turn back On the machine. It should work.
If you need further help, if the problem persists, Let me know with the details.
Thanks for using FixYa.
Thank you for bringing the problem to my attention. Sounds like the the particular keys you mentioned is not working anymore. One way to test the issue is to log to the BIOS menu. Turn off the computer and wait for 10 secs. Turn on the computer and keep on tapping F1 or F2 to go to BIOS menu. Once you are inside the Bios menu test the keys that you mentioned if they will react. If there is no reaction to the keys then the problem is the keyboard itself. You need to repalce the keyboard.

on your keypad there is a button ' fn' (normaly on near the windows key, blue in colour) which when pressed along with another one on the keypad (somewhere in the top row of the keypad) activates this function, what you have to do is a press these two key again simultaneously to de-activate this function. the second button or key will most likely be paired with one of the f_ keys
ok, if u have installed any RAM or BIOS battery now is the time to tell me, or if what i just said made no sense then ur keyboard either has something spilt on it or its ribbon connection to the motherboard or daughterboard (depending in the laptop) is loose. about $25 down at a IT repair shop will fix that. if u want further explanation reply here,
