  1. Thank you! I was panicking and this worked perfectly. I can’t describe how grateful I am 🫶🏼

    Side note: because I didn’t know whether my particular laptop would work with the Fn combo or the AltGr, I did both, one after the other, before replugging.

  2. Thank you, this fixed the locked keys on a Lenovo E14 laptop after the cat walked on the keyboard.

    All the other websites ideas (Upgrade drivers, change OS settings etc) were useless as the keyboard wasn’t working in the BIOS, I knew it would have been some type of hardware lock and this was the fix!
