After window registry edit, keyboard start malfunctioning.

Asked By 90 points N/A Posted on -

What could be wrong with my system keyboard after editing the window registry? I recently disable cap lock of my laptop keyboard using window registry, but after the change, the other buttons on the keyboard is responding to other keys. For example, if I press ‘a’ what I see is ‘z’, in short my keyboard is in mess. I’ve test with external keyboard, but the problem won’t go away. How do I fix it?

Disabling one or more than one key just involves changing the byte values you input into the Scancode Map entry in the registry. To fix it is very simple.

Open your windows registry editor (start > execute > type regedt32 then press enter)

The window of register editor has two sides.

In left side open paste HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESystemCurrentControlSetControlKeyboard Layout

Then click with right button of your mouse in Scancode Map and then click delete.

Close windows registry editor and restart your computer and all of your keyboard key come back to normal function.
