Keyboard Suddenly Stopped Working After I Pressed a Key(Laptop)

I was typing a long Message when i suddenly pressed something that made my keyboard to stop working. I need help Cause I dont know what Key I pressed. I went to the control panel and the keyboard settings but i found nothing. Maybe I pressed a Shortcut that disables the keyboard? The only way i Could Type Again is to log out my Account Or Restart my laptop. I'm Using A windows 7. Also, Nothing is wrong with my keyboard, It works fine after restart.

I don't think you actually need any help since you rebooted and it's working again fine.



Looked at manual, no key combo for keyboard disable.

Maybe you hit FN + F5 and toggled to non-existent 2nd display and didn't work then?
FN + F7 turns off the touch pad. FN + F4 puts in sleep mode, but you'd have to be very sleepy to not notice that.

Otherwise some third party app 'feature', fluke, or maybe scan for a virus.
