    If there is a short delay from the time a key is pressed to the time the character displays on the screen, the Filter Keys function might be activated.

To disable Filter Keys and return to the default keyboard behavior, use the following steps:

    Keyboard keys wont type. used on screen keyboard to type this. any suggestions?


    You might have "sticky keys" so try this:
    When sticky keys are enabled, users can access functions that require pressing multiple modifier keys such as "Ctrl," "Alt" and "Shift" at once by pressing one button at a time. If sticky keys are enabled, it is possible to accidentally turn them on at an unwanted time. After turning off the sticky keys, disable the feature to prevent them from accidentally turning on again.

      • Press the "Shift" button five times in a row to turn off sticky keys.

      • Open the "Start" menu and then click "Control Panel."

      • Click "Ease of Access Center" from within the Control Panel window.

      • Click "Make The Keyboard Easier To Use" from within the Ease of Access Center window.

      • Remove the check-mark beside "Turn On Sticky Keys" to prevent sticky keys from being accidentally turned on.

      • Click "Apply" to save your changes and then click "OK" to close the window.
    Hope this helps. Good Luck!

    Turning off my green keys on HP pavilion desktop keyboard?


    Hi,

    How to turn off Sticky Keys: disable the Ease of Access feature
    Tip: use the Windows Ease of Access Center






    How to turn off Sticky Keys: what are Sticky Keys and why turn them off?
    Sticky Keys is a Windows Ease of Access feature that makes it possible to use keyboard shortcuts or type capital letters without needing to press more than one key at once. Normally, you'd hold down the Shift key while pressing a letter to type a capital, or hold down the Ctrl key while pressing 'S' to save a document. It's even trickier if you want to use a shortcut such as Ctrl-Alt-Del or Ctrl-Shift-Esc.

    With Sticky Keys, you can press Ctrl, Shift or Alt, let go and then press another key - Windows will interpret this as pressing two keys together. You should also hear a beep if you have speakers connected.

    That's great if you're disabled and can't press two keys at once, but what if you want to disable Sticky Keys?

    How to turn off Sticky Keys in Windows 8
    You can't press Shift another five times. Instead, you need to bring up the Start menu (or Start screen in Windows 8) by pressing the Windows key. Now type "ease of access" and click on Ease of Access in the list of results.

    If you're using Windows 8, you need to click on the Ease of Access Keyboard settings result, and then it's a simple case of sliding the Sticky Keys toggle to 'off'.

    When i push the e,b,t,a,n ,or r button on my keyboard i get e3 ,bt5,a1, r is shif and nyt


    I have often deal damage keyboard, and type of damage keyboard so much. For damage your experience, a variety of ways have been tried, but the result always failed. The best solution is replace keyboard.

    Based on experience, three times I fix keyboard, without having to replace with a new keyboard.

    First type of damage
    All keyboard keys are not functioning, or functioning left side, right side not working
    Solution
    Remove the keyboard, and cut keyboard cable.

    12_4_2011_4_49_23_pm.jpg

    Second type of damage
    When laptop is powered on, the sound (tiiiiiiiiiiit) so hard. When we press a button, suddenly appeared equal. example;
    I press "y", y appears =======================
    I press enter, appear =======================
    Solution
    Press and release button ~ ` , do it
    repeatedly, when turning on laptop until laptop access the operating system.
    .

    12_4_2011_4_57_25_pm.jpg

    The result is
    1. When laptop turned on, there was no sound. Laptop turns normal.
    2. When I press buttons, does not appear equal to. So all buttons normal function
    3. There are three buttons that do not function [ { , ] } , \ '


    Third type of damage
    When laptop is powered, it looks normal. After entering the desktop, buttons z, x, a, s, q, w, e, does not work. If another buttons is pressed, appear equal. example;
    I press p, appear p=======================
    Solution
    Do not turn on laptop (about 3 weeks)
    This solution does not make sense, there is no technical explanation, and this solution so strange.

    The fact that I experienced
    This case occurred on the Acer Aspire 4736z, OS Win XP Prof.
    After laptop not turned on, more than 3 weeks, keyboard returns to normal. All buttons are functioning normally. I can not explain technically, but this case never happened.


    Solutions for you
    The best solution is replace keyboard.

    I hope this information useful.

    Seems the on board keyboard had problems ( sticky ) Have you try using Usb keyboard? I guess the 'Sticky key' is Ctrl or Alt key. you can try pressing Shift key 5 times repetedly ( to disable sticky key )
    Try remap keyboard > ( to disable sticky key with application )

    Some keyboard button not workin on dell laptop


    Did you spill any liquids into the keyboard? If you did you may have damage the keyboard PCB and it will need to be replaced. One thing you can try to do is to first take a picture of the keyboard so you know where the keys go back to that you removed. Then use a small screwdriver to remove the non-functioning keys. Be very careful and do not use too much force or you may damage the key. Inspect the inner buttons and see if they are sticking. You can use a cotton swab or q-tip and rubbing alchohol to try and clean the inner part of the keyboard. Sticky liquids can cause the inner keyboard buttons to stick and mal-function. If the keyboard PCB is damaged you can either replace the keyboard or buy a usb keyboard to use on the laptop. The OS should recognize the keyboard after you plug it in.

    Can't type anything without weird things happening the \'p\' prints,


    hi, check that Sticky-keys arent turned on.

    to toggle Sticky-keys on and off, press the shift key 5 times fast, then either Disable the sticky-keys tickbox, or click Settings for more configuration settings.

    when sticky-keys are enabled, you can press shift and release, and the shift key is still enabled. this also goes for Alt, and CTRL.

    so if it is enabled, pressing P will attempt to be Ctrl-P - which is print.

    When i hold my shift button down it doesn't capitalize the letter...and then when i let go of the shift button and then type the second letter that letter is capitalized. this is supposed to happen when...


    I called up logitech support and they said it isn't the keyboard that was messed up it says that the sticky keys were on which is a Microsoft feature. What you have to do is go to Start, Control Panel, Accessibility Options. When you get in there you go to the box that says Sticky Keys and go into Settings. Uncheck the boxes in the option box that say: Press modifier key twice to lock, and, Turn StickyKeys off if two keys are pressed at once. That worked for me and I am also running Windows XP.
