What is wrong with my keyboard?

George September 3, 2011

I can’t type anything on this new computer I got. All it does is if you hit a letter altf screen functions are locked?

    If the keyboard is a usb keyboard, it may be that the drivers need to be uninstalled. Right click My Computer; click Properties' then Task Manager. Are there any yellow question marks, or exclamation marks? If so, right click each one, and then click "update drivers". If not, right click each usb device and uninstall the drivers. Reboot the computer and let it find the drivers itself. Chances are that will sort out the problem

    yes the question is not clear...but if it displays alt + functions ...then
    press alt key press both the alt keys a few times...to make sure it's not stuck..and restart the pc or re-plug the keyboard ...

    New computer..?
    Have you plugged in the keyboard's cord into the mouse's slot..?
    Make sure relevant cords are plugged into their respective slots..
    Green is for Mouse.. and Purple is for Keyboard..
    If this doesn't helps.. replace your keyboard asap..

    your question is very vague. We need more information to help you!

    What kind of computer is this, i.e. a desktop PC or a laptop?
    What manufacturer and model computer is it?
    If desktop, how is the keyboard attached to it, i.e. PS2 or USB etc.?
    What operating system are you using?
