    Was typing away on the computer when I did something and now my keyboard is completely locked I've been trying to work out for a couple of hours what I pressed but to no avail and of course I can't ask Microsoft for help as I can't type in my question.....getting really fed up.

    Incidentally, I'm on my iPad now!

    Anyone got any ideas? I've tried rebooting and all the usual things.......

    Hun.. I just googled it and someone said hold shift down for 10 seconds, then restart computer
    I don't know if that works but is worth a try...
    I will keep checking back on this thread to see if it works. If it hasn't let me know and i will explore google more.. Good luck x x

    Thanks babe, will give it a try.....would use Paul's but it's a Mac and I have only just got the hang of windows vista.......Paul got a new computer for his birthday and gave me his....supposed to be a lot better but I'm not so sure! My old one was slow, sure, but at least I knew what I was doing on it!

    Hi, if it is not a laptop try switching the pc off unplugging the keyboard and then plugging it back in again. Restart the pc. Does the number lock or caps lock leds light up ? Try pressing the num lock to see if num lock lights. If it does not light up then the hardware ( electronics of keyboard or PC ) have gone wrong otherwise the keyboard has been disabled by the Windows software.

    If it is a laptop then they often have a hot key sequence the Fn button and some other key that switches the keyboard on and off.

    Good luck
