Press the Windows logo key + U. This will open the ease of
access center. Click on the keyboard icon. It will say, "make the
keyboard easier to use" next to it. In some versions of Windows you will
need to get to the option by pressing the left shift key five times

Is the lid lock tang on lid broken.
2.9 Lid Lock
The Phase 7 Washer uses the same lid lock that is used on
the Phase 6 series 11 & 12 machines. The difference being is that the lid is now locked for the entire cycle. When the lid is locked the Lid Locked LED will illuminate. Once the spin
has completed, the lock will release and the lid can be
opened. To open the lid during the cycle the
START/PAUSE button must be pressed, the machine will
come to a halt, and the lid locked LED will extinguish.
If the lid is left open, the machine will be unable to lock the lid
and the cycle will be halted. The machine will play a tune
and the lid lock will flash until the lid is closed and START/PAUSE is pressed.
• If the lid-lock fails in the closed position, the locked lid can be forced upwards and out of the
lock. Note: This is the only time in which we would recommend doing this.
• If the harness is damaged, the complete lid lock assembly will need to be replaced.
If the power supply is cut during the spin cycle, the machine will keep the lid locked until the rotor has ceased to turn (3 to 10 secs). Only then will it release the lock. The motor is acting like a generator and allows the lock to stay energized under the bowls inertia.
Based on your description of the problem you're experiencing, it sounds like you most likely pressed the "NUM LOCK" key. If NUM LOCK was activated before you cleaned the keyboard and was accidentally pressed during cleaning, this key press would deactivate NUM LOCK, causing the number pad to stop responding. To reverse this, simply press NUM LOCK again. The NUM LOCK button is located right above the "7" key on the number pad (see picture below).
Alternatively, since the setting determining whether NUM LOCK is activated when your computer is started is stored on your hard drive, you can try restarting the computer to revert back to an active NUM LOCK. Be sure to try this in case the first solution above does not work.

If you tap your Caps Lock key repeatedly (during the process when you are trying to click F2 and V12)... does your Caps Lock Light turn on and off? If not, your keyboard isn't recognized and may not be plugged in properly.
It sounds like your keyboard device driver. It may have been "updated" automatically.
Do you have a spare USB keyboard or can you remove one from a desktop temporarily?
Power OFF the laptop and plug in the USB keyboard. Power ON laptop.
Use the USB keyboard, not the laptop keyboard for this procedure.
First, does the USB keyboard work w/o locking up?
Anyway, Go to the "Device Manager" by right-clicking "My Computer" and select "Manage".
A list of Your computer devices will appear on the right window. Expand the +Keyboard and find the HID Keyboard Device associated to your laptop. (Pick one by checking the properties of each one to see which one may not be working)
(( btw, HID = Human Input Device ))
You can either "UNINSTALL" it or "UPDATE DRIVER"
When finished, reboot, remove USB keyboard if you want to and the laptop keyboard will work just fine, or the OS will "find" it first , then start working ok.
Good morning! possible that some of the keys (/letters) terminal point of your keyboard were locked/stucked-up during your cleaning. I suggest to use another keyboard then check the status of the keyboard if it is working properly thru Device Manager. best regards
It sounds like you might have accidentally turned on the laptop number lock. I am assuming you are seeing that characters are being typed, but the password is not accepted. If this is the case, try turning off the num lock by pressing the FN key (usually found by on the lower left by the CTRL and/or ALT keys).
If this doesn't work, trying entering the BIOS when starting the computer (usually by pressing F2 repeatedly when you see the DELL logo). In the BIOS look for an option for the numlock and turn it off.
Last shot - I have seen a few times where num lock is remembered when an external keyboard is used and then stays enabled on the laptop after it is disconnected. If you used a plugged in keyboard and/or use a docking station, you may want to try plugging in the keyboard again, disable NumLock (above the number pad on the right) and then shut down. Remove the external keyboard and I suspect the laptop won't have this issue.
