It might be due to a service called "ATI Hotkey Poller" running
which is intermittently slowing the keyboard typing down.

To disable it in Windows XP Home:-
Go to Start->>Run->>type "msconfig"->> click the "Services" tab->> uncheck Ati Hotkey Poller->> Then Ok, then Restart computer.

hope this helps

    Then I can only recommend doing the same for the CPMService.exe, although that tends to work on Dell laptops. press control-alt-delete and look in the task manager to see if it is running.
    if not then either, there are too many programs running at startup, or you have to get the latest graphics card drivers for your laptop.
    That's me all out of ideas, mate.
    good luck

Why the black screen on my pc?


It really could be a lot of things. The four that immediately spring to mind are

1. Your screen is broken
2. Your computer is slow and is going through a cascade of data which may take a long time. Leave it alone and come back to it in an hour. Or even 2 hours.

3. Your Video driver may be corrupt or missing. If this is the case, a new driver needs to be installed. This is difficult when one cannot see the screen to do it.

4. The Function key for sending the feed from your laptop to a third party device, like a projector, is enabled. Your computer thinks you want to use it to send the picture to another device. You should hold in the Fn key, down near the bottom left CTRL key. and while holding in that Fn key, press the Function key (F key) across the top of the keyboard that shows a little picture of a television screen. Press it once and wait to see if your screen returns. If not, press it a second time... If not, then this is not the problem.

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.

I have to hold the keys down for a couples seconds on my EeePC asus laptop in order for it to type. Did I press something that locked a keyboard delay?


You might have activated Sticky Keys or more likely Filter keys feature, used for some types of special assistive access.

Open your Ease of access control from the control panel and read up.
Try holding down the Right Shift key for 8 seconds and see if it clears.

My mjkluiop keys are typing 0123456-. Other keys are typing working incorrectly also. I can only get the correct letters by holding down the Fn key. How do I correct?


the number lock is on. you have to hold down the Fn key and look closely at the other keys and look for one that has a tiny picture of a calculator, pressing it with the Fn key should restore it.

There is a delay when pressing the keys on my thinkpad T42


you haven't mentioned how other programs behave. i would suggest it is spyware slowing your computer down or one program that is using up to my cpu usage. hitting control-alt-delete will bring up your task manager... at the bottom it shows cpu and memory usage as a percent.... what are the amounts ?

Acer aspire 3003wcli keyboard stopped responding


You probably activated the "Num Lock" accidently. Just hold down the FN and look for the key that says "num lock" Now you should have your keyboard back and the numbers will just type when you hit the numbers key. I did this to myself yesterday!

Cannot get backslash (\) character to display


To get a backslash, you need to print the upper ascii character 92 (decimal). On most machines you can get upper ascii characters by holding down the Alt key and typing the decimal value on the numeric keypad. On the little IBM machine I'm typing this on, there is no numeric keypad, but if I switch on numlock (by doing shift-scroll-lock) the j-k-l keys become 1-2-3 etc. Now id I hold down Alt and type 92 (i.e.keys 9-k), this is what I get: \ Howzzat?.
