Keyboard locked up: how to unlock it ?

 Petro772 -

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

A few words of thanks would be greatly appreciated. Add comment

Thank you, Anon. - cat is heat-seeking and more savvy than me :-/ but your tip worked a treat. :-)
I had the same thing happen. (mine was my kids not our car lol) but this also worked for me. THANK YOU DO MUCH
Clearly my cat has outsmarted all of you because none of these option work :)
