my laptops keyboard makes a wierd sound every time I hit a key, I think it's locked. if I hold a key down for a few seconds it comes up, but that's it and I can't write a paper this way and can't figure out how to get it back to normal. any suggestions?
 
Hi,

Please do check if sticky key is enabled.
- Go to Control Panel then in Ease of Access Center.
- Click on Make the keyboard easier to use.
- Remove the check on "Turn on Sticky Keys.

If these doesn't work do try these other troubleshooting steps:
- Check keyboard language settings.
- Open Control Panel and look for Region and Language.
- Check all tabs if they are all set to United States.
- If that doesn't work, try pressing those following keys which are not working using your onscreen keyboard (Ease of Access look for Onscreen keyboard)
- Connect an external keyboard and see if the same problem will persist because if does you may need to consider on doing a complete Factory Reset cause it's a problem with your operating system.
