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.

How to exit a program that is responding


Do you mean NOT responding?
If so, hold down the command key (that's the one right next to the space bar), then hold down the ALT key (that's the key next to the command key) and while you are holding them down press the ESC key (top left hand corner of the keyboard).
A window will open up showing all the running programs. Normally the problem program will be high-lighted and will have (not responding) tagged onto the end of its name. At the bottom of the window is a button marked "Force Quit".
Alternatively you can mouse over the program's icon in the dock, click on it and hold the click for a couple of seconds. A menu will pop up with "Force Quit" in it. That's it.

Keyboard beeps when any key is pressed


The reason these beeps are happening is because there might be a key that is slightly depressed enough to where its registering keystrokes. Move your fingers all over the keyboard and see if you the beeps stop after you do that. If it still is going on then that means your keyboard is bad and will need to be replaced.

Microsoft Wireless Keyboard Slow and Intermittent


It can be a couple of things. 1. Try replacing the keyboard & mouse's batteries with fresh batteries. 2. Try moving the wireless receiver closer to the keyboard. 3. Make sure the receiver is not located too close to other electronics like a tv or dvd player. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer.
