Question about Gateway 2520915 Keyboard

Keyboard beeps when any key is pressed

My keyboard beeps when you press ANY key. If you hold it down it beeps, then it beeps again and types the key, this takes over a second to type each key. This isnt because of a slow repeating rate either, and I've unplugged it multliple times or tried restarting the computer. I currently am having the problem on my gateway computer which uses Microsoft Windows XP SP2. Please help and thank you.

    The keyboard doesn't work, the PC beeps when pressing a key. Only the on screen keyboard works. I have created several user accounts on this PC, and the problems only occur with ONE of the user accounts.

    So this is definitely no hardware problem.

I found out what was wrong in my case. Someone had tampered with the accessibility options

So for anyone with keyboard problem check :
In Windows XP : control panel-> accessibility options -> keyboard : StickyKeys and Filterkeys checkboxes should be unchecked.

In Windows Vista : Ease of access -> Ease of access center -> keyboard : StickyKeys and Filterkeys checkboxes should be unchecked.

Hold your shift key down for 10 seconds and it will reset your keyboard. It might happen again and just repeat the process and it will reset again. This definately works.

I have the same problem as the one above, and can say at once that plugging in another keyboard will not work. My on-screen keyboard does indeed work, but it's not related to a bad keyboard. My keyboard works during BIOS and boot-up, so something tells me there's something wrong with windows.

 

Try a Windows -> Run -> sfc /scannow

See if it detects any errors there.

SOURCE: Keyboard beeps when any key is pressed

The reason these beeps are happening is because there might be a key that is slightly depressed enough to where its registering keystrokes. Move your fingers all over the keyboard and see if you the beeps stop after you do that. If it still is going on then that means your keyboard is bad and will need to be replaced.

    How to turn on numlk for gateway NE56R31u


    You may have hit a certain combination of keys on your Gateway laptop and turned on the NumLock function accidentally. The result is that the rectangle of keys from the 7 key down to the question mark key have become a number-entry keypad. Worse, Gateway manuals don't discuss this function.

    Hold down the "Fn" key on the bottom row of the keyboard, and press the "NumLk" key. Type the letters UIO. If they come out as numbers, move on to the next step. Hold down the "Fn" key and press the "F11" key. Type the letters UIO. If they come out as numbers, move on to the next step. Hold down the "Fn" key and press the F11 key and "Scroll Lk" key simultaneously. Type the letters UIO. If they come out as numbers, move on to the next step. Hold down the "Fn" key and press the "F9" key. Type the letters UIO. If they come out as numbers, move on to the next step. Hold down the "Fn" key and press the "Scroll Lk" key. Type the letters UIO. They should come up as letters. If none of these help, then it's probably a keyboard malfunction and you'll need to get it repaired.

    Turning off my green keys on HP pavilion desktop keyboard?


    Hi,

    How to turn off Sticky Keys: disable the Ease of Access feature
    Tip: use the Windows Ease of Access Center






    How to turn off Sticky Keys: what are Sticky Keys and why turn them off?
    Sticky Keys is a Windows Ease of Access feature that makes it possible to use keyboard shortcuts or type capital letters without needing to press more than one key at once. Normally, you'd hold down the Shift key while pressing a letter to type a capital, or hold down the Ctrl key while pressing 'S' to save a document. It's even trickier if you want to use a shortcut such as Ctrl-Alt-Del or Ctrl-Shift-Esc.

    With Sticky Keys, you can press Ctrl, Shift or Alt, let go and then press another key - Windows will interpret this as pressing two keys together. You should also hear a beep if you have speakers connected.

    That's great if you're disabled and can't press two keys at once, but what if you want to disable Sticky Keys?

    How to turn off Sticky Keys in Windows 8
    You can't press Shift another five times. Instead, you need to bring up the Start menu (or Start screen in Windows 8) by pressing the Windows key. Now type "ease of access" and click on Ease of Access in the list of results.

    If you're using Windows 8, you need to click on the Ease of Access Keyboard settings result, and then it's a simple case of sliding the Sticky Keys toggle to 'off'.

    If this does not help you. Let us know the below details to understand the issue bettery.

    I have to hold the keys down for a couples seconds on my EeePC asus laptop in order for it to type. Did I press something that locked a keyboard delay?


    You might have activated Sticky Keys or more likely Filter keys feature, used for some types of special assistive access.

    Open your Ease of access control from the control panel and read up.
    Try holding down the Right Shift key for 8 seconds and see if it clears.
