How can i unlock my keyboard


Recognize that you have a locked keyboard.

If your PC computer is not responding to keystrokes or is responding very slowly, you could have a locked keyboard.


Use your mouse to move the pointer over the "Start" button.

Use the left-click button to bring up the "Start" pop-up menu.


Position the pointer over "Settings" and use the left-click button to select. T

hen select "Control Panel." On some versions of PC operating systems, you can select "Control Panel" directly from the "Start" menu.


Select "Accessibility Options" to bring up another menu, then select "Keyboard."

You'll see three options that have check boxes.


Make sure each check box does not have a check mark in it.

The three options are "StickeyKeys," "FilterKeys" and "ToggleKeys."

Note that these options can become checked if the keyboard operator has repeatedly depressed the "Shift" key in rapid succession--or if the "Shift" key is held down for longer than eight seconds.


If the keyboard is still not responding, the problem could be that the computer has lost communication with the keyboard.

Turn off the computer.


Disconnect the power supply.

Remove and then reconnect the keyboard cable, then reconnect the power supply.


Turn the computer on.

This will reboot the computer, allowing it to recognize the keyboard.


hope this helps

I am trying to clear a SE-S300 Casio Till of all prior transactions, clerk numbers etc to enable a complete new programming proceedure. I have turned the PGM key to the "off" position, held down...


Are you sure you understand the full programming including machine features setting, memory number programming, department, PLU programming? You will have much more work if you decide to RAM clear the machine. It is better to just edit the existing programming if you want to save time. The only thing that bugs people is the grand total and that can usually be turned off anyway. See what you think

Transposed keys


You can remap the keys but honestly if you just got it I would return it in case there are other problems you haven't noticed yet.

Try ataching another keyboard using a USB port. If you can get the other keyboard to work right you need to get the keyboard replaced.
