How to unlock my sony keyboard vgp-wkb5fr


Accidentally locking your Vaio keyboard can cause typed letters and/or numbers to appear on the screen very slowly, or not at all. The locking function can occur if a user holds down the shift key for more than eight seconds. This feature can be unlocked through the computer's Microsoft Accessibility Options.


1. Click "Start," "Control Panel," "Ease of Access" and "Ease of Access Center."


2. Click "Make the keyboard easier to use." A new window will appear.


3. Remove the check-marks next to "Turn on Mouse Keys," "Turn on "Stick Keys" and "Turn on Filter Keys." This unlocks your keyboard.


4. Click "Apply" to save changes, then "OK" to exit the window.



if you think i misunderstands your problem or you have any other problem you can post again

What are the names of kyboard and its keys ?


it is only for a computer keyboard hope it help from you.

A computer keyboard serves as a main operating tool for accessing and inputting data into a computer. The keyboard features many functions and keys that a user may never use, but is still essential to some users. Understanding the keyboard can improve computer knowledge and use.

QWERTY Pad

The "QWERTY" pad is main sections of letters on the keyboard. These letters are mainly used for typing and also as shortcuts in programs like Windows Movie Maker, Adobe After Effects and computer games.
Number Pads

The far right side of the keyboard features a number pad that resembles a calculator. This number pad is essential for programs like Excel, but can also be used to input numbers as a typing function. More numbers are just above the "QWERTY" keyboard that also feature symbols when the "Shift" button is used.
Arrow Keys

The right bottom of a keyboard features four directional arrow keys. These keys provide navigation through word processing documents and also serve as scrolling functions in web browsers.
F Bar

The top of a keyboard features the "F Keys," a selection of keys that extends to "F12" on most keyboards. These keys serve different functions. For example, "Alt and F4" exits out of a program. "F1" will start the typing helper in word processing programs.
Extra Keys

New keyboard feature shortcut keys at the top of the keyboard. These include shortcuts like "Power," "Sleep Mode," "Calculator," "My Computer" and "Web." Some also include media controls for movies and music.

I lost my question mark ... How do I get this back


Hi, if you're getting an e with an accent on it when you try to type a question mark, you may have the French keyboard layout selected. To change it back to the English layout, follow these steps:
In Windows Vista/7: 1) Click the Start button and click Control Panel
2) Underneath Clock, Language and Region, click Change keyboards or other input methods
3) Click the Change Keyboards button
4) Under Default input language, make sure English is selected. In the Installed Services box, delete any languages you do not need by selecting them and clicking the Remove button. Make sure you don't delete US!

I have a new computer and can not figure out how to get some of the punctuation marks, as there are 4 marks per key. How do I use them all.


Hi there,

The marks are usually made in combination with the FN key or an SYM key that you need to press first before the key..

Open notepad and experiment on the combination.

Hope this helps,

What key stroke functions do I use for the


Click Start
Click Control Panel
Click Classic View
Click Regional and Language Settings

Switch to use the "US English" keyboard,
instead of the "French" keyboard.

Or, if your keyboard has an 'ALT(ternate) GRA(phic)' key, hold that key down, press the '?' key, and a '?' should be displayed.
