You may have activated a shortcut key on your keyboard such as the Fn (function) key. It looks like this

Fn and usually situated on the bottom left hand side of your keyboard near the left hand cntrl button.

Some function keys when pressed once remain on. Once they are on they can cause different symbols to appear in place of the normal keyboard ones. If you press your Fn key again and then try typing on the keyboard once again it may help fix your problem.

I hope this helps

FILTER KEYS HAS DONE SOMETHING AND I DONT KNOW WHAT THEY ARE BUT


Well, to deactivate the filterkeys; press Shift Key 5 times and when the Stickykeys dialog box pops up, click "settings" and remove the tick mark from the "use filterkey" (If you want to use your keyboard as normal, the uncheck all the ticked marks) click "Apply" > "Ok" and check the changes.
Good luck

Keyboard Problem


Holding down the right-side SHIFT key has activated the "Sticky Keys" feature in Windows -- designed for physically-handicapped people who cannot press more than one key at a time.

Access CONTROL PANEL and disable this "Accessibility Option".

I have a hp laptop model no dv 2046 tu...the problem i m facing is that my keyboard's ctrl key is stuck...whenever i press any key....a combination of that key wid ctrl is is taken...example....if i press...


This solution is for Windows XP.
If you see no physical sticking, then you may have "Sticky keys" on.
To look to see what your "Sticky Keys" Settings is at do the following:

In "Control Panel" double click "Accessibility Options"
A new window will pop up. The first tab is "Keyboard".
The first box at the top is "Sticky Keys" make sure that is unchecked.

"Sticky Keys" can be automatically turned on if you hold down certain keys for a predetermined length of time. Usually a box will pop up asking if you want to turn it on.

Thank you.
Please rate me.
