You can try to unlock the shortcut key, or see if you have disabled the keyboard driver.

After you press the "NumLock" key, press the "Fn" key and the "F8" key at the same time.

Hi nina119,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

 

On the Yoga 900 (Page: 3-7) , the the keyboard and touchpad are automatically locked when the screen is opened beyond 190 degrees.
(approximately). This is where the sensor is around for detecting the device going into Tablet mode.  Are you sure you haven't just opened the screen too far ? If so, just adjust the screen back into a normal viewing position and the keyboard/touchpad should unlock.

 

 

Hope this helps

 

Regards

 

Voithos
