A bit of a vague question, but hopefully someone may be able to help. My sister has an Evesham custom built laptop, running XP. Her young son had a bit of a "play" and it seems the keyboard is 'locked' in some way. I'm not with her, so can't give very good details, but she knows the difference between this situation and a crash. She must have been able to reboot, but clearly the keyboard is still in a disabled state once rebooted.
My hunch is that there's some kind of hotkey or function that occurs when you hold down shift for 7 seconds or something.
Any ideas welcomed.
Edit, its not the 'filter keys' thing that's her problem, I don't think - though I just royally buggered up my own computer in trying to replicate the problem (I totally don't see how filter keys could ever be useful)
