Sounds like something wrong with the '9' key. Turn it upside-down and give it a shake. If you can remove the key in question, do so and clean it with a dry cotton bud. Sounds like there may be some muck in it activating the metal contacts in the key, making the the computer think the key has been depressed.

If not, replacing the keyboard may be an option.

Hi i have a dell inspiron laptop unfortunately my touch pad got locked, please help me to unlock it thanks


Hello

Press the Windows icon key on your keyboard, and hold it down until the "Start" menu pops up. If your keyboard doesn't have a Windows icon, press "Ctrl" and "Esc" at the same time.

Press "C," then arrow down to "Control Panel" and press "Enter."

Navigate to "Mouse" with your arrow keys, and press "Enter" to open up the mouse control dialog box. Then, press "Alt" and "F" together to access the tabs at the top of this box.

Navigate using the arrow keys to "Device settings" or "Touchpad" or the similar option on your system, and press "Enter."

Press the "Tab" key until the "Enable" option or a check box next to it highlights, and then press "Enter." Press "Tab" again until you are highlighting "OK," and press "Enter." Your touchpad will be re-enabled.
