Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

windows ten ( i cant even type numbers ) basically whatever i do to the keyboard its as if the shift button is pressed which means when i do lattercase it does CAPS and also when i do numbers it does the symbols plus i cant even scroll and whenever i open a new tab it completely takes me to an other google it doesnt just add a tab 
when i click "comma" it does this : "<" when i click dot it does this ">" when i restart the pc it takes me to a profile thingie where it asks me a bunch of options like restore data or whatever 
anyway ive searched some shit and nothing comes up and its rly frustrating

Have you tried another keyboard or taking off your shift keycap and cleaning it?

You didn't turn on sticky keys or something, right? :)


Is the physical key stuck down, or is it "electrically stuck"?  What kind of keyboard?

I had a shortcut a while ago that I couldn't find the solution to what had been pressed... I couldn't even log into windows etc and it wasn't sticky keys or anything else that I tried.

In the end I used the onscreen keyboard to log in to windows and then used system restore to a few days prior to that happening and that fixed it.

Just for sanity's sake, try the keyboard on a different device to check it's not the keyboard itself... and if it's not the keyboard, hopefully you have a recent restore point you can use at least?

Please quote my post, or put @paddy-stone if you want me to respond to you, I may not see your post otherwise.
