My car put its paws on the right hand side of my Dell laptop. However, everything works fine except he keyboard. When I try to type in text, there is nothing but a "blip" sound.

I think it hit a lock keyboard combination. How do I unlock?

System Configuration: iPad / Safari 6533.18.5

Try this
  • Unplug your battery, power supply, keyboard and all the peripherals.
  • Push the power button for 30 seconds.
  • Reconnect everything back and restart the PC

I don't think there is a combination to lock a keyboard.

Hope, it helps!
Thank you! It worked.
