Question about Computers & Internet
Hi i have a toshiba laptop and both my shift keys r not working and the sticky key's is disabled pls help
You might consider using, at least tempory, a external usb keyboard with a touchpad, you can get get them at Wal-Mart for around $20.00
Otherwise consider taking it to a computer shop and have them test the keyboard and if need be order you a new one. If this computer is still under warranty then I would would talk to the support team that you purchase it from. Good Luck.

Select Turn on accessibility features from the keyboard (above Sticky Keys) to turn sticky keys on and off from the keyboard. When this option is selected, you can press Shift five times in a row to enable or disable sticky keys.
You can also turn sticky keys on and off by clicking the accessability icon on the top bar and selecting Sticky Keys.

SOURCE: SHIFT KEYS NOT WORKING PROPERLY
Please try to deactivate the Fn (function) key. That will help you get rid of your problem. Press Fn key + Numlock key once and try again. You can also try pressing the Fn key once and type letters in any word processor program with the key combination everytime you press the Fn key once. E.g. open the notepad, press Fn once and after that press ) with Shift.
If you have problem, let me know.
Thanks for using FixYa.

It could be that you enabled filter keys by you holding down the shift key for more than 8 seconds. then click the 'Settings' button next to it hope this helps
click start menu > control panel > accessibility options
the checkbox next to 'Use FilterKeys' should be unchecked, if it is checked, uncheck it and
Then uncheck the box near the top that says 'Use Shortcut'
if this doesn't work then you may want to have a look at some of the other keyboard accessibility options and see if you can get something to work
you may have to restart windows in order for the changes to filter keys to take effect.
