I seem to have locked my keyboard and can only use the one on screen, since this computer is touch screen


By the sounds of it, you have enabled your computers Sticky Keys. To disable the Sticky Keys, go to Control Panel -> Accessibility Option and disable everything.

Note: Sticky Keys are enabled by pressing the shift key five consecutive times.

Password reset on dell 518


Reset Your Windows Password Using the Command Prompt

1. Boot your computer using your Windows installation disc.
2. Wait for the setup files to load, and select your language. Click Next.
3. Click the Repair your computer link on the Install Windows screen.
4. Select the operating system to repair, and note the drive letter on which the OS is installed (it is probably C: or D:). Click Next.
5. Click Command Prompt at the bottom of the list of recovery tools.
Now you need to overwrite the Sticky Keys executable with the Command Prompt executable. Sticky Keys is an accessibility feature that allows a user to tap the Shift, Ctrl, Alt, or Windows key once to achieve the same effect as holding the key down. Ordinarily, tapping Shift five times activates Sticky Keys--but with this trick, you are going to make tapping Shift five times activate the Windows Command Prompt instead.
The instructions below use drive letter C: as an example. If your operating system is installed on another drive, replace C: with the appropriate drive letter.
1. In the Command Prompt window, type copy c:\windows\system32\sethc.exe c:\ and press Enter.
2. Type copy /y c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe c:\windows\system32\sethc.exe and press Enter.
3. Exit the Command Prompt and reboot the computer. At the login screen, tap Shift five times. The Command Prompt will pop up.
4. Type net user username password, replacing username with your username and password with a new password.
5. Exit the Command Prompt, and log in using your new password.
To prevent another user from exploiting the same trick to reset your password, you can restore Sticky Keys as follows:
1. Step through the instructions above to boot the PC using your Windows installation disc, open the recovery tools, and launch the Command Prompt.
2. Type copy /y c:\sethc.exe c:\windows\system32\sethc.exe and press Enter.
3. Exit the Command Prompt and reboot the computer. Pressing Shift five times will now activate Sticky Keys instead of the Command Prompt. Store your Windows installation disc in a secure location.

Shift key locked keyboard out, can't use keys


I found that if you hold down both left and right shift key at the same time (did this for several seconds), it it will solve the problem. Hopefully that fixed the issue. Also, go to control panel, click on accessibility options..in the keyboard tab, click on the settings buttons for sticky keys, filter keys and toggle keys and deselect the option to use shortcut..hopefully this will help you and other people that have had this problem.

My keyboard constantly loses it use of the tab key. I also find that sometime I have to turn the number lock OFF for the numbers to be used in the keypad. Then all of a sudden its fine. Its as if I am...


Does the problem dissappear when a new keyboard is installed? Yuo see, the problem might not be with the keyboard at all. Virus attacks can do bizzare things with your keypresses. So get a good Antivirus software installed and update it regularly. Download Malicious Software Remover Tool from Microsoft for free and run it once.
Goto control panel > Accesibility features and see whether any of the features (such as sticky keys) is turned on. Turn them off. You might accidently turn on these features without knowing. For example, if you press Shift key 5 times, Sticky Keys feature will turn on.
If you think the problem is with the keyboard, try this. Minimize Excel if you are using it. Minimize any other software you are using. Tap on different keys of the keyboard (specially Tab, Shift, Ctrl and Alt keys) with some force. Now restore Excel window and try.
