No, there is no option to lock and unlock it. First, try restart your laptop. See if it works, if it doesn't go to Acer website under support and locate your laptop. Download the latest firmare for BIOS and install it. If that doesn't fix the problem, you either have a loose connection on the keyboard or it is faulty. You will have to take the keyboard out, usually has only to clips at the top line around F3 keys and one similar on the other side.

How can i unlock my keyboard?my laptop is HP Pavillion dv6940se.pls reply asap.thank you very much.

The only way to lock/unlock a keyboard is either with the Fn key and the F# key corresponding to that function. The F# key may have a padlock icon. Or if you can use your mouse, you can try going to control panel, ease of access center and click the heading 'change how your keyboard works'. I believe there are programs available which can be used to lock the keyboard, but that would likely have been installed after purchase and should have an icon in the system tray!

My computer keyboard is locked. How do I unlock

The connections might be loose. Please try to unplug the cable which connects your keyboard to the computer. If that doe snot work try an alternate keyboard and see if that works.

If that still does not work, then most probably it is the keyboard port on the motherboard which is faulty.

Just bought Acer laptop (series 5517) and the keyboard appears to be locked. How do I unlock it??? Please help 9/27/09. Thanks!

If not, re-boot and press the [F8] key to get into the "Safe Mode" screen. See if the keyboard works in Safe Mode.
If so, go tothe Control Panel and select "keyboard" and update the drivers.
If not, then re-boot and select the [F8} key again, but choose "Start computer in last known good configuration"
If it still doesn't work, but the mouse does, then the keyboard is disconnected or the connector is loose; open 'er up and connect it.

Help me to unlock a laptop keyboard

I had the same problem for my laptop as well. I basically turned it off and removed the battery for ten minutes, then put it back in and turned it on to which it started working. I don't know why it stopped working before or started to work again when I removed the battery but it's happened three times and everytime that has always worked for me. I know it's not very technical but try it.
