Reboot. Now if you cannot do this because of the keyboard, don't fret. Hold the power button down for about 5 seconds. It should simply shut downthe laptop complete. Push the button again normally and let it fully reboot. Don't worry about damaging the machine. You won't hurt it.
Hope this helps,
Best Regards,
Mark

How do I unlock the keyboard


Wired keyboard usually do not have locks, However some wireless keyboard do. A switch is usually on the top side of the keyboard that slides back and forth.
However you may also be seeing "Caps Lock" which means the Caps lock key is engaged. Simply press the "Caps Lock" key again to unlock it. The caps lock key is located at the left side of the keyboard.

HOW TO SWITCH BETWEEN NUMBERS AND LETTERS


I'm guessing this is on a laptop or mini keyboard? You have managed to turn them number lock on. To be able to use the letters again on the keyboard the number lock feature needs to be turned off. This varies depending on the model of keyboard/laptop. One thing that may help is using the fn (lower left on keyboard) key on laptops (funtion key) and while pressing this tap the Num Lock key, usually at the top right of the keyboard.
difficult to be specific without knowing the exact make/model.

My keyboard stopped working after my dad threw a pillow on it absent mindedly, and it messed with my normal keyboard now it just doesn't work at all, its really annoying, i tried new batteries,...


Hi supercrapnst ,

Please follow the below steps..:)
  1. Please make sure that you get your keyboard replaced , in case it's still under warranty , hopefully the supplier would give you a direct replacement.
  2. Check if the keyboard works when connected to your friend's pc , so that you are confirmed that it's not just your pc that is having an issue with the keyboard.
  3. Check if there is any lock key function on the keyboard which locks all the keys together so that you unlock them again with the relevant command , please refer to the manual or the icons on your keyboard , as there are some keyboards which provide this option.
  4. Check the device manger settings, via right clicking on my computer icon --> properties --> hardware --> device manager and see if the keyboard is detected as working properly , if there is an error , you need to reinstall the key board driver and hopefully it will work.


Hope this helps ..:)

How do you unlock the CAPS lock


Hi,

To unlock the caps lock on your keyboard, please click on the caps lock key again.

Check for few iluminating lights on your keyboard as well, as few of the models does have that.

If the Caps lock is ON the lights normally illuminate and If you click on the caps lock key again, the lights go off.

I can't type anything on my keyboard. How do you


I donot think there is a lock key on the keyboard only if you have special one, there is only Num lock which lock only the numbers, but make sure your cable is plugged well from the computer side, disconnect and connected again, restart the computer and try again. it should work.

Thanks for using Fixya
