    I have pushed the right hand shift key, at the righthand side of the keyboard. Unintentionally I held it down for perhaps 10 secs. Now I am unable to type into the works word procesor without holding the same key down for @ 10 sec until the computer beeps, and then the problem is cleared. But i have to do this every time I need to use the word processor. What can i do to correct this problem?

    You will want to look in your system for something called stickykeys. I think this was probably activated. Try look under "Start Menu">>"Settings">>"Control Panel">>"Keyboard" and see what you find within the dialog box.
