Can't turn off Sticky Keys!

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Somehow, when pressing the shift key five times, it turned on StickyKeys. I don't know what that is buy my question is how can I get my keyboard to work again. I google'd it and found it said to press the shift key five times again. Doesn't do anything. On a sidenote, ctrl+alt+delete still works, but nothing else. Please help!

I think it can be turned off by holding your right shift key down for 15 seconds (or something like that)

Yep, reboot, or hold shift for a while.. that happened to me when I was playing call of duty, lol.

Yeah, as annoyingly stupid as it seems, they don't tell you to just hold down both 'shift' keys at the same time- should resolve your problem right away.
