Goto control panel - keyboard. See if U can unlock it from there. Else goto control panel- system and uninstall keyboard, then "action" scan for changes and reinstall the keyboard. Normally the cd's that come with the keyboard have the programs to lock them out. Recommend... don't install the lockout program.

Press the "Ctrl," "Alt" and "Delete" keys on your keyboard simultaneously to unlock your Gateway computer.

Type the last logged-on user's login information and click "OK" if you see a locked computer message along with "Only domain/username or an administrator can unlock this computer."

My keyboard is locked how do i unlock it?


Maybe you keyboard is bad or your keyboard has been hijacked by a virus.

Make sure you keyboard is plugged in good on the back of the computer. If the end of your keyboard that plugs into the computer is Round and it plugs into the green port on the back of the computer you have a PS2 (serial) type of keyboard and you cannot unplug it and expect it to work if windows has already booted up. If you remove this type of keyboard connection, you have to Reboot your machine otherwise the keyboard is locked.

If the end of your keyboard that plugs into the computer is Flat, then you have a USB type of keyboard that goes into the computer's USB Port. This type of keyboard is Plug and Play so you don't have to reboot if you remove it. If you have this type maybe the USB Port you plugged it into does not work, so try plugging into another USB Port.

Try booting in Safe Mode and see if the keyboard performs.
Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn itback on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFEMODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will lookdifferent to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this isnormal.

I was holding down enter and accidentally locked my keyboard. When I try typing in Microsoft Word a message at the bottom says the keyboard is locked. How do I unlock my keyboard?


Try holding down RIGHT shift for ~8 seconds and watch for a pop-up menu.

If that doesn't work, refer to this: http://www.askmehelpdesk.com/computers-beginners/accidentally-locked-keyboard-363705.html

How can i lock my keyboard on my laptop?


http://www.100dof.com/kidkeylock.html

download and install it.

Double-click on kkl (kid-key-lock) icon in system tray. Configure mouse & keyboard as per your wish. (my suggestion, dont change any passwords)

To undo it, just type kklquit.

For next use, start kkl (All Programs - kkl), type kklsetup.
********************************************************************
Windows also gives you a way to lock keyboard.
Press Windows+U.
Go to "Make the keyboard easier to use"
Check "Turn on filter keys"
Apply
Keyboard is locked. All you get is beeps when you type.

To undo this, double click the new clock-icon in system tray.
Uncheck Filter Keys.

Hope my solution helps you.
