    My keyboard locked u9p. makes a clicking sound if you press a key. Using onscreen keyboard now. Frustrating!

    Have removed battery with no luck. Twice.

    I have no idea- I didn't even know there was an online screen. LOL!

    You're sure it's the keyboard and not just the computer making the clicking sound?? (I call it the click of death, I'd laugh but I've had it happen twice now and it's sooo not funny)

    You have batteries for your keyboard?? If it is in fact the keyboard, I'd run to wallie world and pick up a new one for like 10-15 bucks. No batteries, but cheap.

    If the clicking is coming from the could be your video card or your motherboard. I've been lucky enough to have one of each. And now my new computer is doing it again. We're limping it along until Travis can pick me up another motherboard. Which will be the 2nd one for a computer that is only 6 months old. argh!!!

    I also would go get a cheap keyboard and try that.

    Have you tried rebooting the computer? Sometimes it will go back to default mode and return the keyboard and screen to their regular states.

    Well at least it doesn't sound like the click of death. If rebooting doesn't work, I'll ask Travis when he gets up. (home on spring break) I had an issue with my mouse and keyboard not working.....he did something and it was reset and fine again. Just don't know what it was.

    Susie Travis needs to know if it's a wireless keyboard or not. If wireless the receiver may need to be reset.

    I am back. Spent over an hour with tech support and then had to reformat and recover factory settings. So for the second time in a month I have a brand new computer, lol!
