I had that problem when I was 'leaning' on the keyboard so to speak...I was holding a Ctrl button and something else at the same time and after so many seconds a window popped up and I barely had time to read it...but it turns out that I inadvertantly triggered the FILTER KEYS...had to go to CONTROL PANEL, then ACCESSIBILITY OPTIONS, then uncheck USE FILTER KEYS. That's all it was!

Hope this helps someone! I've had to help my boss who did this very same thing!

My acer 6516 laptop keyboard is locked, and I cannot get it to unlock.


Holding down shift key for more than 8 seconds will lock the keyboard and it will stop responding. But if you keep pressing keys for few seconds you would be able to type in but it will be very slow.
Plus, it will produce a nasty sound.

To get around this, go to start and then settings, then control panel and then finally accessibility options. Make sure all the 3 boxes are unchecked.

Tip

Wireless keyboard and mouse


Most problem with the wireless keyboards and mice are one of them is not responding or not connecting to the wireless USB adapter that's connected to the computer, here are the things that you may do:

1. Make sure to use fresh batteries.

2. Verify if the keyboard and mouse are turned ON.

3. Avoid putting any possible wireless interference such as base of a cordless telephone and cell phones.

4. In pairing up the keyboard or the mouse, try pressing the connect button on the USB wireless receiver followed by the connect button on the wireless keyboard or mouse.

5. If that did not help, then hold down both connect buttons (on the wireless receiver and on the keyboard or mouse at the same time for five (5) seconds and then release them both).

The keyboard or the mouse should connect to the USB receiver. If same problem occur, then the device needs repair.

Keyboard keys y h n and one of 6 keys not responding


Try another known working keyboard on the computer, if all the keys work then that means your other keyboard is bad. If you have the exact same problem then its something in the Operating system for the keyboard that needs to be checked.

Reconizeing error.


You may have a virus.
The fact that your computer stalls says that you may be trying to do too much at once, however, this might not be your fault. Some computers lag when you only have microsoft word open. That is the sign that you may want to consider upgrading to a newer computer.
Run a complete Virus scan and see what happens

Keyboard not responding


Solution. My wireles keyboard stopped working except for the F-Lock key, the Media key and the sleep key. It wasn't batteries, even though I tried, communication was there because the above keys were working. Remove the batteries from your keyboard and let it sit for about 10 minutes. Press the red connect button a few times and other various keys every few minutes during that time. This may be the whole "capacitor discharge" trick, but I tired that with someone elses instructions and my keyboard did not work after 2 minutes of key pressing. I think it just needed more time to clear out the secure settings. Good luck, I was about to trash this keyboard until I tried again
