Keyboard Locked

  • My keyboard is locked (I think) and when I type no letters show. I can use my mouse and see a flashing cursor. I have shutdown and rebooted, no difference. How do I unlock the keyboard? Thanks!
  • My keyboard was also locked.  Is the "9" light on at the top? If so this is what I did after talking to those idiots at Dell like 12 thousand times

     

    1. Go to "Device Manager"

    2.  If there is a yellow dot next to your keyboard part, then uninstall and reinstall it, reboot and it should work fine.

     

  • Thanks!
  • My dell keyboard works; there are no errors in the device manager, but there is a locked #9 light on the top of the board.   What does it mean?

  • Thankyou , removing the battery worked perfectly. I had the same problem today and took ages to find the fix , but this forum works well.
