Hello, I am hoping someone could help me with this issue. I am not sure if I am posting in the right section of the forum so forgive me if i am not. I am using a compaq laptop with windows 7 for an OS. The G, H, 8, and backspace keys decided to stop working. For some reason the only way to get any of those buttons to work is if you put on CAPS lock and hold shift. Then you can use those keys. Im not sure if any other keys have been affected as of yet. Ive tried to google for a solution, which normally helps me fix any computer issues I come accross. So far I can only find the reccomendation to hold the function button and press numlock, and its supposed to remove the, "sticky keys." I am not quite sure what exactly the sticky keys are but I didnt think it was the problem here, and the laptop doesnt seem to have a function button anyways. I have seen the option to turn on sticky keys when holding shift on other computers or tapping shift 8 times, I dont know if it was turned on or if sticky keys cause certain keys to not work unless you hold shift while CAPS lock is on, but if this sounds like something you can help with please advise me of any suggestions. I appreciate any time you take to help or even if youve read this far. Thank you
 

A:Certain keyboard keys not working unless you press caps lock and hold shift?

First thing you do is get a canned air and clean out the keyboard... slowly, carefully, then do it again with the laptop upside down. That rules out the most common cause... dirt, dust, and debris.

I'd suggest you check Sticky keys in control panel. You might have mistakenly turn it on.
At the left bottom of taskbar, right click windows icon, click on Control Panel, Ease Of Access, and then Change How Your Keyboard Works. If there's a check mark in box - Turn on Sticky keys) then uncheck it and click Apply.

Since the latest update (It introduced the slide show of pictures on the lock screen. I think it is KB3124200) I haven't been able to press Enter or Space or any other key for that matter to "slide up" the lock screen photo to get to the password screen. I've looked through the lock screen settings, but I see nothing that could prevent this. Does anyone know why this is and a possible fix for it?

Thanks in advance!

A:Not able to press keyboard to get from lock screen to password screen

Okay, I think I've figured out a solution.

What I did was right click the desktop and choose "Personalize", then choose "Lock Screen" and switch "Show Windows background picture on the sign-in screen" to "Off".

I have no idea as to why this would change anything, but it did solve my problem, and I don't need the Windows logo background, so I'm happy!

Hope this help

Hi all. I have already posted this once here. The topic had quite a few views and not a single reply. I'm giving this another try, as the problem persists and is not getting any better.

The keyboard on my Aurora m9700 is having some strange issues. I cannot figure if it is software or hardware related, either. At random intervals, the keyboard will cease function. But when I go into standby, then come out of standby the problem seems to be magically fixed! In fact, the problem just happened right after I finished typing the last sentence. I checked event manager, nothing changed. I had to go into standby and come out of it...

So please, is there anyone on here that can help me out? I have reformatted the computer since this started happening and nothing has changed, so I do not know what could possibly be causing this!

Hello,

I have a Qosmio F750-11T. Four days ago I started up my laptop and found out my num lock stopped functioning. The led always lights up, but the buttons do not respond. I can't put the num lock off or on and I can 't produce any numbers anymore with it (nor use the pgup, pgdn buttons when it should be off).

I read some stuff on the (.com) forum and updated the BIOS to the latest version, rebooted it, but nothing helps.

Hello,
Newbie here. I am currently running a Dell Inspiron One all in one touch screen computer with the wireless keyboard. Every time I press the caps lock button it crashes my computer and gives me the blue screen of death. I did notice that I can turn the caps lock on and off with the touch screen keyboard with no issues. Also I can turn the caps lock on with the touch screen key board and then turn the caps lock off with the wireless keyboard with no issues. So it seems to cause this only when the caps lock key is turned on from the wireless keyboard. Tried searching for other problems like this but no luck.

Model: Inspiron 2305

It happens in all the programs that I use, even when I'm renaming a file. For example, when I'm typing this post, or on Microsoft Word, or Notepad, and when I press on the Caps Lock button sometimes to change between capital letters and lower case, the "focus" (or whatever the technical term is), switches away from that particular window and I have to click on the particular window again to continue typing. There is no other window that appears when the "focus" switches. Any help is appreciated! Thank You!

Alienware 17 R4, brand new this week.
All drivers and software updated to most recent versions.
The issue i have is between Caps Lock, using the trackpad/touch pad cursor, and the arrow keys.
I did have the issue with the error message popping up regarding the Thunderbolt driver not being correct, but that has been fixed with a driver update.
Specifically, this happens to me playing World of Warcraft.
With the Caps Lock key enabled (light is on), I can use the trackpad to move the cursor around on the screen, while using the arrow keys to move my character around.  I don't seem to have an issue.
With the Caps Lock key disabled (light is off), while using the arrow keys, my cursor does not want to move, or sometimes is very intermittent in use.
Also, if i am pressing a key, say spamming the 1 key, the trackpad does not recognize any input form my touching it.  This is with the Num Lock key on or off.
I do not use a mouse, have gamed with the trackpad for 20 years now, no issues.  And this is my 3rd alienware laptop, and first time i have had this issue.
I have also adjusted all of the settings on the trackpad and mouse settings, turned gestures and zoom and other settings on and off individually and completely.
As this is really my main use for this computer, may be a deal breaker for me, as it is very frustrating to not be able to use the trackpad all the time.

Hi ABDUL WASI,
Thanks for the post!
It seems the shortcut keys are messed up. Did you get this issue before?
By default, Win+R is used to open Run command, and Win+E for opening Computer. It seems these shortcut keys are changed. Now, if you press Win+R or Win+E, which windows will show?
If you figure out which application used this two shortcuts keys. Right-click the application, choose Properties - Shortcut Tab, what's behind the Shortcut key box? Change it with another shortcuts key.
Also fully scan your computer, and if you have a backup, a system restore could help you come back to a nearlier time.

Hi Guys,

But if I press Ctrl+Alt+Delete the windows security screen shows up as it is supposed to. The arrow keys also work fine. Also, the pc reboots every so often (no set interval), a blue screen comes up before the system reboots but it doesn't stay up long enough to read what it says. Could this be caused by a virus? If so, do you know any fixes? I'm using Windows 2000. Help is greatly appriciated.

Yesterday my whole computer went berzerk when I tried to change my mouse from ps/2->usb, I would get a bluescreen from a audiodriver and after fixing that, the mouse still didn't work properly.. Or it did, but it found new hardware (the mouse) after every reboot and it had a logitech mouse installed under human interface devices and under mouse it had just (unknown mouse= installed.. well to get there it took about 5h of uninstalling and installing different drivers and it finally seemed to work .. when upon booting into xp, the keyboard stopped working. In bios it still works, but if I eg. repeatedly press caps lock when booting, after the grey bar has gone to the right edge the light on the keyboard stops flashing..

I have absolutely now idea wtf is up with this. I think that this same problem has occured before too, I remember it being one of those bugs solved by eating a banana while dancing on one foot..

Yeah so now I'm installing (or recovering the installed version) of xp, but its kinda stuck since when it boots the first time from the hard drive the keyboard wont work in the installation program when it asks me where a file is.. I think I'll now install a fresh copy of xp, but please I really hope someone can shed some light on whats happening.
 

A:Keyboard not functioning after booting

Since your mouse is working, click on your start and then "help and support". There you can click on system restore and pick a date before your woes. I've used this several time to save me from myself poking around and messing things up. Now I know this doesn't answer the "why" of your problem, but it might save you some hours of frustration. Also, once you get things as you like them, you can pick a particular date and set it with a name so that you can restore to that particular day. Another useful feature in XP.
Good luck!

Hi

Sometimes my laptop keyboard will simply stop functioning or have extreme lag. But it's different than the lag we are accustomed too. It's more of a one key takes about 10 minutes to appear and even if i continually press key's, it would not show all the keys pressed, only the first or maybe second one.

There appears to be no apparent pattern to this. It happens with or without battery power attached. It happens in the middle of anything. So, I really am doubtful it's connected to a specific issue or something.

Hi everyone, I was wondering if I can get some help with this issue.

Recently I installed a new copy of WinXP Pro onto my machine and everything was working correctly except for the Multimedia Buttons on my keyboard. Before, my keyboard ( Dell SK-8135 USB) worked perfectly. I tried everything from updating drivers to downloading repair kits. Finally after a restart, I noticed that the multimedia buttons worked but all my other buttons on the keyboard didn't!

I've tried uninstalling the driver, letting the computer pick up the keyboard but still no luck. Device Manager says everything is working correctly.
The keyboard functions in the BIOS but not in the OS (except for the music keys of course).
Does anyone have suggestions on what it would take for normal keys to work? Maybe something to be changed in the registry? Any help is appreciated!

Hi.
Got an issue here. There's an error in my computer and because I'm not able to do anything when the system BIOS prompts me to, I can't fix it. I can see power lights on my keyboard but still, trying to get inside the system BIOS menus, boot from CD, or or even start into safe mode are impossible for me. However, I can get inside the BIOS if I immediately, (and I mean IMMEDIATELY) hit the respective button as soon and the POST starts. But after that, when I'm inside the BIOS menu, again, I cant do anything. I've even tried using a PS/2 to USB adapter to see if it may work, but to no avail. Right now I'm trying to reset the jumpers and take out the battery in hope that this will reset the settings. I've benched down to everything except the hard drive, RAM, and processor. Any suggestions?

I use a wireless mouse and keyboard. Every now and then, often enough to be irritating, the keyboard fails to function: the mouse works properly. The keyboard problem persists for a few minutes, after which it works again. There is no discernable pattern to this problem.

This is the third wireless keyboard to show the same problem, suggesting something is wrong elsewhere.

The keyboard batteries are not responsible for the failure.

On the same desk is a cordless telephone.

Any helpful suggestions would be very gratefully received.

A:Intermittent keyboard non-functioning

I wonder if you are suspecting interference from other wireless transmitting devices? Your comment about the cordless phone suggests an obvious test - could you relocate the phone elsewhere and see if the problem still occurs? The same with any other wireless devices located nearby. Do you have any nearby electrical devices or lights which emit radio frequency noise?

A:Keyboard not functioning on Dell desktop

Hmmm..

So when you boot your Dell and hit F2 during the Dell screen you can't enter your BIOS?? And you say you've already tried a different USB keyboard???

Don;t know for sure but might be a sign of a more serious issue with your USB ports and hardware if you can't even enter BIOS on power up.

One thing you might try: go to your local computer store and get a PCI card with a PS/2 port. I see them online for cheap ($10) but best to go to a local brick and mortar store i think since if that fails to work to, at least is easy to return it. Then try a PS/2 keyboard.

When you get into BIOS, check if there's a setting for USB Legacy Support and that it's Enabled. That tells BIOS to emulate USB before Windows actually loads and starts. As I think if USB fails even during BIOS USB emulation, it probably means hardware failure is my guess. (Tho maybe others might have other opinion... ?)

Hello,Many of the keys on a keyboard of my HP 2760p  are failing to function.I have tried removing the power, holding down power button.I ordered a replacement keyboard which exhibits the same problem.It appears the problem is fluid as the escape and CAPS buttons stopped working today.The computer is out of warranty coverage. Any ideas?!!?      On the image the different colors all indicate function and white unresponsive Thank you for any solutions or experience-Bakelite

Try a usb keyboard but if a brand new keyboard does this it is very likely the keyboard controller on the motherboard which would require motherboard replacement as the solution.

If your keyboard and mouse are USB, have you tried plugging them into different USB ports to see if they would work?

I have a NUC running WIN 10 Pro and it was working fine until Friday.  I unplugged it to move it to a new room and when I try to turn it on, it asks for my Bitlocker recovery key.

I never activated Bitlocker in the first place, but my I have found my recovery key on my Microsoft account.  The problem is, the keyboard doesn't work...I can't type the recovery key in and I can't press any function keys during boot-up to get to the 
BIOS to do anything else that might work.
I've changed keyboards, gone from wireless to plug-in, changed batteries, etc...the keyboards all work fine for other devices, just not for this one while it's locked.
HELP!

Hello -

It seems you have a similar post in the Windows XP section already.

Please do not create multiple topics for the same issue.

Personally, I would think it's more a driver conflict issue. Does the same thing happen in Safe Mode? Add any comment/concern about that in your other topic.

For more detailed assistance if you think the machine is infected.....

We want all our members to perform the steps outlined in the link I'll give you below, before posting for assistance. There's a sticky at the top of this forum, and a

This is for an Aspire 5100.

The computer logs on fine, but the user is unable to log in since none of the keys respond. The computer won't soft reset, and the mouse won't work either.At best , sometimes Fn+F6 allows for the screen to be shut off.

Any help? There is alot of school work on this particular machine.

today my computer was fuctioning normally. then suddenely my keyboard and mouse doesnt work. theres no input at all. the lights doesnt come on, and theres no sign of charging. so i look closer and the base isnt charging, none of the usb ports, headphone jack, hdmi port, or any bit of the base is functioning at all. the tablet works fine, but the computer doesnt show the secondary battery or show any form of docking when i connect the tablet to the base. i restored windows with no changes, i tried reinstalling drivers with no changes. this is definitely a hardware problem but i dont know if just the base battery needs to be replaced or if i need a whole new base, or if theres another connectivity issue. please help!!

I have a microsoft wireless keyboard and mouse set comfort edition. It used to work fine on my old computer and now i have just run a repair install of windows and it doesnt work. WHen i installed it last time i didnt need drivers or anything and there are none on the internet anyway. All i have is the Intellittype and intellipoint programs that came with the product. These are just about config and do not contain drivers or anything. I plug in another USB optical mouse and it worked fine. My keyboard and mouse are both plugged into PS/2 ports, the mouse by an adaptor. What do i need to do to make them work again?
