    Keyboard locks while I'm working


    There must be some key or key combination that I'm hitting that I'm unaware of that locks my keyboard while I'm working on it It doesn't matter what I'm doing, whether surfing the web or in a program it just locks and I can't doa thing with the keyboard anywhere until I reboot, which is inconveient at time since I sometimes have a few windows open.

    :)

    I"m having a problem with the keyboard in Windows 10

    Hi Robert,

    I realize that you are facing issues with the keyboard. I will try to help you with this issue.


    • Did you make any changes to the PC prior to this issue?
    Suggest you to plug in an external keyboard to the laptop to check if that helps.

    Further you may also use the onscreen keyboard to check if that helps.

    Follow these steps to launch the On-screen keyboard:


    • Press Windows key + R to get the run window.

    • Type “osk” and hit enter to launch the On-screen keyboard and check if this helps.

    Keep us informed to help you further.

    Thank you.
