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.

    If these do not work it could also be due to humidity in your keypad. Try cleaning it out. Without water of course.

Hi, can you pls help me with the procedure to lock and unlock the keyboard of mini HP110 notebook?


Improve the Fixya experience for everyone by voting.

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.

Keyboard of myASUS K50IJ-XA1 15.6-Inch Versatile Entertainment Laptop (Black) is locked How to unlock the same? Kindly help


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.
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

BACKSPACE KEY, ENTER KEY, NOT WORKING!


Hi Janis552,

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. You may call Lenovo tehc support at 18774536686

Thanks!

From Dell user manual:
The numeric keypad functions like the numeric keypad on an external keyboard. Each key on the keypad has multiple functions. The keypad numbers and symbols are marked in blue on the right of the keypad keys. To type a number or symbol, press <Fn> and the desired key after enabling the keypad.
  • To enable the keypad, press <Num Lk>. The keyboar2.jpg light indicates that the keypad is active.

  • To disable the keypad, press <Num Lk> again.

Wireless keyboard and mouse


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,
