Problem with onscreen and or laptop keyboard

by exiler / August 4, 2006 6:21 AM PDT

Im having a problem with the on screen keyboard or PC keyboard on my Dell laptop.Whenever I type an L on the PC keyboard when inputting data which contains L's, the screen expands and the on screen keyboard pops up, and when I type an L in the on screen keyboard, the screen also expands and goes back when I hit another L. Its almost impossible to get any work out that contains L's.
I tried everything that I could, like deleteing the on screen keyboard. But now when I happen to hit the L key on the PC keyboard, the screen expands and when I hit the L key again the screen goes back. The on screen keyboard does not pop up because I deleted it.
Its very annoying and I hope you can help.Someone mentioned something about a hot key, but no
further information on how or were to go about this.
Please help,

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
