5204 shift keys work, then don't, then work

No upper register, no caps, neither shift key worked. thought it was a Word issue, downloaded W0rd 2003, no change, but then they started working again, after many reboots. it is a 9 yr old device, used only for typing, etc.stickykeys were turned on, off, made no diff.

    maybe i was not clear, Ray: no caps, or upper case, but would get random tildes or bold letters, indicating the key was "working" but that the software was awry. The key itself -both- are as cleans a the outside of an intestine (the skin of a sausage.)

My shift key is not working properly in my Keyboarding online class. It gives me an error everytime I try to key in a capital letter. i have changed keyboards and it still does the same thing.


When you say it gives you an error, do you mean an actual error message, or the lower-case letter?

I have no idea what your experience is, so I'm asking if you know the difference between the Caps Lock key and the Shift key? The Shift key has to be held down while pressing the other key, eg h key to get H.

Pressing the Caps Lock key locks into upper-case, SO YOU GET A LINE LIKE THIS until you press it again.

The gear shift will not come out of park, Pontiac Vibe 2003


there should be a cap that you can pop off with a key or small flat screwdriver next to the shift indicator next to the shift lever. lift the cap off and insert your key into the key hole you should be able to shift the lever now if the problem persists take your vibe into the dealer.

Types in upper case only (without caps lock/shift key locked)


in most cases yes, BUT since the light for caps lock is not comming on you might have a bad P.O.T. on the keyboard layer.. Since im assuming we are talking about a laptop..
