Question about Laptop Parts & Accessories
I have sticky lable residue on a software CD that I need to get my new mobile phone up and running...I tried to scrape the label off but ended up with a nasty residue..could you help!?
WD40 is brilliant at removing label residue from anything - CDs, white goods, even footwear. Use it liberally or spray some on to a non-metal kitchen scouring pad. You can find a mid-size spray-can for 1 pound or less.
I recently had to deal with a terrible gooey mess left by a strip of velcro that had come adrift from a pvc waist-belt. Not even WD40 could shift it. After some research, I homed in on a US product called Goo Gone, which one can now buy in the UK on Ebay for around 9 pounds. I placed the belt on a rubbish sack, stretched out on the floor in a ventilated room and sprayed it around six times at hourly intervals. This completely ungooed the belt and what little residue remained was easily cleanable with soap and a scouring pad.
To solve my belt problem, I removed all the velcro strips, treated them all with Goo Gone until all the adhesive was neutralised and then re-attached them with superglue and stitching.
Goo Gone also claims to be able to remove chewing gum and, although I have not tried it, I would be suprised if it did not live up to that claim.
The Goo Gone spray bottle comes in a generous quauntity, which should last you for many years. To avoid buying fakes or lookalike products, check out their distinctive yellow and black design on the US Ebay site before going to the UK Ebay site.
WD40 is excellent for small jobs, but Goo Gone took my breath away. Which reminds me, avoid inhaling whilst using it and close the door behind you.

Try to lossen the residue with a little white spirit, before wiping clean with a damp cloth, always use soft cotton cloths and wipe gently

Try pressing both the left and right CTRL keys at the same time and
see if that releases CTRL.
Go to Start / Settings / Control Panel / Accessibility Options /
Turn off CTRL lock if it's on.
If that solves it and to avoid future problems, press "Settings"
Turn off "Press modifier key twice to lock".
Turn on "Turn sticky keys off if 2 keys are pressed at once".
Or turn off "Use shortcut"
Clean your keyboard.

It might be that you have by mistake turned on the sticky keys on the system.
Sticky Keys is an accessibility feature designed for people who have difficulty holding down two or more keys at a time.
When a shortcut requires a key combination such as CTRL+P, StickyKeys will enable you to press one key at a time instead of pressing them simultaneously
I would suggest you to check whether the sticky keys are turned on. Follow the steps mentioned below.
Click on Start and click on Control panel.
Click on 'Accessibility Options' and in keyboard tab make sure that there is no check mark near 'Use stickykeys'.
If there is a check mark then remove it and then click on Apply.
hope this helps
