nothing really. I cannot find any reference to the problem in any trouble-shooting literature.
I think I have seen a reference somewhere to 'sticky keys'??
Hi and welcome, My name is XXXX. X will assist you with your Laptop issues.
Are you using Windows XP Vista or 7?
How long did you have this problem? Or when did you see it first started?
Do you see any sticky keys window or screen?
About 2 years.
About 2 years. No symbol that I recognise.
Please reboot your laptop.
As it reboots, immediately tapping F8 3-4 times
When you get the Advanced Startup Options, select Safe Mode and press Enter
Now your laptop is running Safe Mode.
See if your keyboard is working properly.
Afraid not. I had to depress shift key for about 16 clicks before keyboard was active
So after 16 clicks your keyboard will work correctly?
Is your laptop using Windows XP Vista or 7?
Yes that is correct Windows XP
Are you chatting with me using the laptop?
Or another computer?
Please turn off the Sticky keys as follow
If you do not see Accessibility Options, switch to Classic view in Control Panel.
Did you change the settings on your Sony laptop?
Test it and make sure it will work next reboot
