I am a novice at the keyboard and didn't get an instruction manual in the box with my new emachines computer. I don't know if I accidentally hit the wrong key or what, but I can't start new paragraphs. When I try to start a new paragraph the words just jump up to the top line as soon as I hit the spacer bar after each word. Is there something I can do to restore it to the way it's supposed to operate or am I doing something wrong? Thank you

Unlock a keyboard? Do you mean your e machine is locked? If the keyboard is not working get a generic ps2 keyboard at a local goodwill for a few bucks. First though check the pins on that round connector and make sure they are not bent.
I have never heard of a keyboard for emachine computers ever, ever having a lock. For what it is worth I have been fixing computers since 1993. Machines is a low cost consumer box without much in the way of bells and whistles but a lot of bloatware.
Laptop keyboards aren't nearly as expensive as they once were, and replacement is usually not that difficult, and the instructions will come with the replacement keyboard in most cases. Since you didn't state the make or model of laptop, I cannot suggest locations to get new or refurbished or used keyboards for your unit, but you should be able to find them online fairly easily.
Tape a double piece of paper directly over the touchpad.
(If you don't use it). It worked for me. Now I don't have to worry about accidently hitting it and making my typing skip or delete text by mistake.
Make sure the batteries work by testing them in another device(sometimes they lose their charge if they have been in the box too long). If they are charged, make sure you have the devices connected directly to the computers onboard USB port so that you can be sure it is getting enough power to the reciever.
If this does not work, it might be a hardware setting on windows. You will want to make sure all of your drivers are installed properly in device manager, this is unlikly the problem but it has been known to happen. Make sure the mouse and keyboard are aligned properly with the reciever.
If your computer is running slow, it may just take a long time for windows to recognize the new device. If you do not hear windows responding by making the 'new device found' sound then it probably is not detecting the new device in which case it is probably something wrong with windows or the drivers. If it does make the sound and it says it is loading and you see the ballons pop up on the bottom right then it has sucessfully connected.
If all of this does not work, then I would say that they are toast. Try them on a different computer if you can. This should give you a definate idea of if it is a problem with your computer or a problem with the device itself.
