[Solved] Opera blocked my keyboard and have to restart my computer

  • Hi,

    I would like to try Opera on a PC with Windows 7 Enterprise. I installed the "normal" version and the portable one, each time I had the same issue. Which is that at a time my keyboard doesn't work at all (in Opera, but everywhere in Windows) so I my only option is to turn off my computer and restart it. After, it works normally.

    It seems that the problem occurred when I'm going to the parameters. First of all, it's the wheel of my mouse which start to zooming instead of scrolling the menu. Then if I try to go everywhere to type something, impossible.

    Did someone already have this problem? Any way to fix it?

    Thx

  • Wheel starts zooming instead of scrolling? Sounds like Opera thinks the Ctrl key is held down - try tapping the left and right Ctrl keys to see if it clears.

    Hi, it's what I thought, but the keyboard doesn't work at all.
    Maybe it's due to an expernal numeric keypad that I use with my laptop. I will try to disconnect it next time I have the issue.

  • I tried, but it's not due to my external numeric keypad.

  • Finally it could be my numeric keypad. I disconnected it since 3 days and I did not succeed to repeat the problem.
    Thx
