Try to update the keyboard driver. If this does not work you may need to get a new keyboard installed.

How can i unlock my keyboard


Recognize that you have a locked keyboard.

If your PC computer is not responding to keystrokes or is responding very slowly, you could have a locked keyboard.


Use your mouse to move the pointer over the "Start" button.

Use the left-click button to bring up the "Start" pop-up menu.


Position the pointer over "Settings" and use the left-click button to select. T

hen select "Control Panel." On some versions of PC operating systems, you can select "Control Panel" directly from the "Start" menu.


Select "Accessibility Options" to bring up another menu, then select "Keyboard."

You'll see three options that have check boxes.


Make sure each check box does not have a check mark in it.

The three options are "StickeyKeys," "FilterKeys" and "ToggleKeys."

Note that these options can become checked if the keyboard operator has repeatedly depressed the "Shift" key in rapid succession--or if the "Shift" key is held down for longer than eight seconds.


If the keyboard is still not responding, the problem could be that the computer has lost communication with the keyboard.

Turn off the computer.


Disconnect the power supply.

Remove and then reconnect the keyboard cable, then reconnect the power supply.


Turn the computer on.

This will reboot the computer, allowing it to recognize the keyboard.


hope this helps

My shift 2 key does not give me the @ sign and the shift 3 key gives me the number sign. and other errors.


You do not explain what the "other errors" are but the SHIFT 3 is supposed to be the pound sign (#)
Nor do you say what the shift 2 does display if anything.

The most common problem with keyboards is what we in the businees call "Lunch Syndrome"

Basically it's contamination

Hold you keyboard about a foot off the table, turn it so the keys face down , then shake and gently tap the bottom of the keyboard to dislodge the contamination. You may want to lay paper or a towel down as you'll be surprised as what comes out.

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.
