    Windows 8 Command to Unlock a Keyboard


    I have a really dumb question, but I somehow locked the keyboard on an hp 3125 netbook that runs Windows 8. Does anyone happen to know the command to unlock the keyboard? I tried the fn(function keys) with no success. I appreciate any help you can give me with this one, just a dumb rookie mistake on my part!!

    Thank you in advance, I appreciate it!!
