On-screen keyboard will help googling and using the find to find the options. Thanks, Keith Does anyone have any idea why the toggle keys beep when you push caps lock or num lock doesn't work? My keyboard would work to log in but after entering password. I'm now wondering could my children have caused this by banging on my keyboard?? Sure enough, the Filter Keys setting was enabled on the two systems that working. . I wish every problem was this easy to solve. Tech advised to turn off Sticky Keys.
. . As usual, you are strongly recommended to create a backup or a restore point before anything, just to make sure that you are on the safe side in case something goes wrong and either the operating system fails to work correctly or other peripherals are no longer detected by your Windows 8. Many thanks in advance for any help. And then they just stop working again. I've checked that the toggle and filter keys settings are off.
I checked the sticky keys thing but my settings are disabled. If not, it is broekn in some fundamental way. It is very possible that you inadvertently activated the filter key option on windows. Maybe my best option might be to reinstall win7???? Not exactly what I wanted to deal with on a Monday morning. Even Synaptics own install package failed with the same error.
I can't thank you enough!!!! Most Notebook keyboards prefer U. I only have 8 on tablet. Hope others can find your post first. It is very inconvenient if none key on your keyboard works. I need my keyboard for work and I'm afraid that if I have to downgrade back to windows 8 I will loose my microsoft office.
I was tearing my hair out there and after resetting the whole bloody thing, I was considering reloading Windows 10. Can't find anything on Toshiba's site and everything on Google just tells the process of turning them on and off, nothing about what to do when that process does not work. I don't use my Touchpad anyway. Logged in to windows, and the same problem comes up again. The incorrect Value data for the MonitorSize registry string is the root cause behind this issue. It took exactly 10 secs to solve this by following your steps.
I even did a system restore to a point from last week. If you are not sure where to check that in Windows, follow steps below and turn it off if you need. Thankfully I have a touch screen virtual keyboard so I used that to Google my problem and I found this, haha. I've also tried holding down the shift keys. All other sounds work fine. I find loads of people with a similar problem, but I haven't found a solution yet. Hope the methods here help you fix the keyboard not typing issue.
I am very thankful for this quick fix. Then the application jams, brings a message saying it is not responding and then i have to close the application. Graham Has anyone fixed this yet. When the system rebooted after finishing the updates, the mouse and keyboard were dead. Good riddance to the Desktop, time for us all to move to the 21st Century! I don't have to send in the tablet now.
It was the filter, and it works again. Already spent over 70hrs so far on trying to research this issue. Tried rebooting with them installed. In May of this year i went on holidays for four months. Now i use the on-screen keyboard help me please. Using the touch keyboard button, the touch-keyboard can be accessed.
