It might be due to software & hardware problem. You need to un-install the drivers in Device Manager. WebRepOverall ratingThis site has no rating(not enough votes)

SOURCE: laptop keyboard is not working correctly

Accoring to the problem you have mentioned i am sure the keys are not connected properly. The tab key is connected on the Caps lock key. Moreover make sure you press the fn key to check for any changes as it is the key which helps you toggle in Laptop

SOURCE: my loptop D610 turn on ,caps lock blinks and ater 3 to4 secons it

I would try clearing the cmos battery. It's located under a small door under the laptop battery. Unhook the wire (laptop unplugged) and let it sit for 20 minutes. Hook it back up and try to power up. If that doesn't work www.pcrepairhelp.net has techs that work on laptops.

What is wrong with my laptop? It is as if the shift key is stuck


Go into device manager in windows and delete it and reboot. If it comes back when it detects the keyboard and it works then it was a driver, if it does detect it or it wont work correctly then it is a bad keyboard. You can also try a plug in keyboard to see how it behaves, ps keyboards are not that expensive.

How do I know if my caps lock is on or off by looking at my lap top.


On most laptops there will be a LED light that will illuminate if caps lock is on.

The location of this LED will vary from model to model.


*** Tip *** Try pressing the caps lock on and off and look around for a flashing light that follows the pattern your pressing.



I hope this helps. Any questions just leave a comment, and i will get back with you.

Thank you.

My keyboard acts like the shift button is down but when i plug in a usb board it does the same thing.


Check if the CAPS LOCK is on. The key to toggle this is right above the left Shift key (next to A). There is usually a light with the indicator near the top of the keyboard (other lights for Num Lock and Scroll Lock).

You can tell if it is a Caps issue if the pressing the numbers above QWERTY give the numbers not !@ etc.

I hope this helps.

(you should turn off the computer and clean both keyboards. Sometimes, some dirt gets into the keyboard and triggers stray signals. There are a number of cleaning products that work; just make sure the keyboard is dry before turning the computer back on.)

There is no Caps Lock light on the keyboard. The instructions say there should be a symbol on the Windows taskbar for keyboard modes such as this but I can't see it.


off to the right on the top. if u press your caps lock on the left in the middle of the keyboard. light should come on at upper right above the number keys.

Unlock numeric key pad on lap top


your laptop should have a blue FN key (Function) that will work in conjunction with other blue keys on teh keyboard. most laptops this is located in the lower left, next to the ctrl key. Look to the right top on your keyboard for a one labeled numlk. hold down teh left FN key and tap the right num lk key and you just turned off the numbers lock.

There is another option that is a little more intense - if interested let me know that laptop type you have.

Keyboard letters coming in to numbers


Generic comments

Are you using a lap top? If so ... the is a probability you have the num lock on which turns certain keys into numbers (they have little blue numbers on the keys) so you can use the "key pad" in the middle of your keyboard. Press the Fn (probably blue too) and num to turn this off.

If you are on a desk top ... you are going to have to look in the help section of your software for an answer to this problem'

Sorry, I tried :-)

Keyboard keys that have purple numbers are locked. Can't type.


Your "Num Lock" is on.
Look for the num lock key (it's similar to the "caps lock" key in function)
If the "num lock" is blue, you may have to hold a blue "fn" key when you press num lock

There's is probably a light at the top of the keyboard that'll tell you when num lock is on.

No keyboard instructions


You need to press the Function button, then the num lock button. The function button may be labeled FN or F in a different color, the same color as the num lock button.

If that doesn't work, go to start, all programs, accessories, accesibility, on screen keyboard....it will display a regular keyboard on your screen, then click on the num lock key on that keyboard.
