Disconnect your keyboard and reconnect and then reboot. This should correct the problem. If not, you probably need a new keyboard.

Dell inspiron n4030 keyboard not working


Shapsog,
You may need to turn off the Filter Keys option. Follow the steps below to turn them off.
Go to
1. Control Panel
2. Ease Of Access Center
3. Make the keyboard easier to use
4. Uncheck the "Turn on Filter Keys" option
You also may need to Check to be sure you don't have Sticky Keys enabled.
BY PRESSING THE SHIFT KEY FIVE TIMES
Without pressing other keys, press the SHIFT key five times to enable Sticky Keys. A window will be displayed asking you if you wish to turn on Sticky Keys Clicking Yes will enable Sticky Keys or click No.
If none of these steps work you may need to replace the keyboard or plug in an external USB keyboard.
Thank You,

Left shift key not working


Hi Marcy,

Check that the key depresses all the way (same amount as other keys next to it). If so, then the most likely problem is that the keyboard has failed. You can have the keyboard replaced fairly easily.

Keyboard for the Dell Vostro 1520 costs $20 or less depending on where you buy. You can view YouTube videos on how to replace the keyboard or have someone professionally replace it for you.

Where is hash button on dell 1525 keyboard?


Hold down both the Shift and 3 keys at the same time. That's the usual combination for QWERTY keyboards.

Shift key not working


You have 2 Shift keys on the keyboard. If the other shift key is working then the shift key that is not working is defective. You should consider replacing the keyboard on your laptop. There is no setting on Windows that can disable the shift key.

**Note : If both Shift keys are not working, Try to check if sticky keys feature on windows is on. Sticky keys should be disabled. To disable sticky keys, Click on start and Go into control panel > Accessibility Options, and under keyboard there is sticky keys. Remove the tick and click apply and OK.

**If "Use Sticky Keys" is unchecked, that means sticky keys is disabled.
