That sounds like a problem with your keyboard.
try replacing it, if you don't have one lying around turn it upside-down and tap it on the back you might just have dirt inside it

There's something stuck under the tab/caps keycaps (maybe a crumb of Sunday's toast) or possibly something spilled in it, but I'd say the problem is the keyboard. The $10 fix is go out and get a new keyboard. Yes, you can get a half decent keyboard for about $10-$20.
You can pop off the keycaps with a butterknife if you aren't afraid of damaging the keyboard further and blow it out with a can of compressed air, but if you don't have compressed air it costs about the same as a new keyboard.

    It's a long shot, but I've seen similar behavior when the keyboard is in the mouse port and the mouse is in the keyboard port....or even if the keyboard is USB and the mouse is in the PS2 keyboard port. Check where everything plugs in.

Don't know how to unlock caps lock

There shoudl be a Caps Lock button on your keyboard....look on the left side of your keyboard between the Tab and Shift buttons.

Also, one way to see if your Caps Lock is on is to look on your keyboard, typically in the upper right hand corner and look for a light eminating from your keyboard and it should look like the letter A inside of an image of a palock, if the light is on then Caps Lock is on, just hit the Caps Lock key to turn off.

Maytag Neptune washer shutting off in mid cycle

It must be the timer that is causing the control board or "computer", as you call it, to shut the cycle down, especially when the machine shuts off at almost exactly the same point in the cycle. The control board energizes the timer motor and monitors changes in the timer inputs. It will open the power supply line relay and shut off the machine if the timer inputs do not change within 5 minutes of continuously energizing the timer motor. It means the timer motor is stuck or the timer internal cam is broken at the point where the machine shuts off. Replace the timer (part #22002867) to fix the problem.

Disconnect power to the washer and remove the three screws securing the console's rear cover plate across the console's rear top edge.

The console has six locking feet that secure it to the top cover. Gently rock the top of the console forward then push the bottom of the console toward the back of the machine to release the locking feet from the slots on the top cover. Once the locking feet are released, remove the timer knob by pulling it off the console; lift the console then flip it forward onto the top cover to access the timer.

Disconnect the timer wiring harness then remove the timer mounting screw.

Lift the timer locking tab near the end cap and slide the timer toward the end cap to release the timer retaining tabs from the slots in the console. Lift the timer off the console then install the new timer.

Align the three tabs of the timer with the slots on the console then insert the tabs into the slots.

Lift the locking tab slightly then slide the timer back into position until the locking tab can engage with the slot provided in the console. Secure the timer with the mounting screw then reconnect the wiring harness.

Reinstall the console by lining up its six locking feet with the slots on the top cover. Insert the locking feet into the slots then rock back the console into position. Secure the console's rear cover plate across the console's rear top edge with three securing screws.

Whirlpool side by side refrigerator filter installation. new filter will not turn.

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.
My reading your question lead me to think that the filter cap is what your havin difficulty with. Push hard and turn. Make sure the locking tabs are aligned. Take the cap back off and look at how it locks internally. Then align the cap with the locking tabs PRESS and turn. I hope I am not over simplifying this but the new filter usually comes with instruction sheets with pictures.

Thanks for using FixYa!

I can not turn off the click lock. every time I single click it locks onto what I click. It will drag buttons and links across pages as well as constantly highlight text. I have used the control panel...

In the 'Mouse Properties' control panel, instead of the 'Buttons' tab, go to the 'Device Settings' tab. Click on the device. Choose 'Settings...' Choose 'Tapping.' Choose 'Tab and drag.' Uncheck 'Locking Drags.'

I'd certainly be swapping the fuser first although I know how expensive they can be and what a pain they can be to get at. You've tried everything else I would start with and as the text is smudging I'd certainly be testing the fuser next. Scott.
