My Gateway NE56R41U will not resond.Locked on open

If you accidentally held down the shift key for more than 8 seconds (could have left something on your keyboard?) then it will lock it out to where you can't use it. Just go to the start menu and then settings, then control panel and then finally accessibility options. Make sure all the 3 boxes are unchecked. (Sticky keys, Filter keys, and Toggle keys)
What I want to know is how did you type this question in the first place if your keyboard isn't working.

    Hello i was writing an email and held down the shift key for to long and an box came up with three options so i just pushed cancelled and now the keyboard is not working properly.capslock is back to front....

    It seems your sticky keys got turned on somehow. Press shift key five times and it should turn off the sticky keys feature and fix your problem.

    You might be wondering what is this feature all about, so here goes:

    StickyKeys is an accessibility feature to aid users who have physical disabilities, but it is also used by others as a means to reduce RSI (or a syndrome called the Emacs Pinky). It essentially serializes keystrokes instead of pressing multiple keys at a time: StickyKeys allows the user to press a modifier key, such as Shift, Ctrl, Alt, or the Windows key, and have it remain active until another key is pressed.

    My number keys arent working because i was hold shift for more than eight seconds the a message popped up then i clicked ok

    Try holding down the shift key again for 8 seconds and read the window to cancel the filter keys.

    As for your numbers not working, there is a NumLock [number lock] key on your keyboard. Try hitting that and see if your numbers work.

    Hope this helps.
