I have a Microsoft Natural Keyboard Pro. I was cleaning it and when I was
done. The N/Lock, C/Lock, S/Lock are blinking and the keys will not work. I
must have activated something. When I restarted the computer it said
something about sticky keys or something like that had been activated. How
can I reset it back to the way it was? I have also downloaded the newest
software for the keyboard. Thank you in advance. I am using window 2000.

Did you press the shift key 5 times rapidly? Check your accessability
options in the control panel to disable that. You might have turned
something on in there. Next time clean your keyboard with the power off ;)

Bob I fumbled, fiddled and fingered:

If you press the shift key 5 times I think that toggles the
accessibility sticky keys on or off

as in Table A.2

Maybe, just maybe something got fried during cleaning. Can you borrow
another keyboard to see if that helps.

This will at least help seperate a hardware problem from a software
problem.

The sticky keys could merely be a symptom of a hardware malfunction.
