If you have a wireless keyboard, remove the batteries and just type anything randomly for about a minute to discharge the capacitors. Now insert fresh batteries (in correct polarity) and reconnect to PC. Also check for sources of interference like magnets, speakers, TV, etc and move keyboard as far away from these as possible.
If you have a wired keyboard, try a different connection. eg: If connected to the PS/2 port, try the USB port instead.

Should these not work, then your keyboard is beyond repair, and you will need to get it replaced.

Hope that helps! If you found the solution satisfactory, kindly take a moment to rate it as FixYa!

If your Keyboard is corrupted then you need to replace with it by another keyboard. Until then you can use Desktop Keyboard. To use Desktop Keyboard Go to START -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Accessibility -> Click on On-Screen Keyboard.

Thank you.......

When I try to boot up, I just get a screen full of aaaaaa

It's sounds like you have a defective keyboard or a corrupt keyboard driver. If you have another keyboard try swapping them out. If not you can try booting the computer with the keyboard disconnected to determine if it's the keyboard. If it's not the keyboard you'll need to boot using a bootable CD and then replace the keyboard driver.

I openup my hp dv1000 laptop and windows is corrupt.

first remove battery and power cord and then restart with just the power cord and see if that resets and fixes it.

If not, plug in an external keyboard and if it works then would mean your keyboard is dead and u will have to buy and replace it.

could mean motherboard too but try the other things first.

Volume up and down keys wont work

It sounds like one or more of the files may have been corrupted somehow. Updating the drivers should have fixed it but if they don't replace the file that is corrupted, you get your problem.

Go into control panel and first check under add/remove software and uninstall the keyboard control software. That will clean out any corrupted files. Then reinstall the drivers and set it up your keys again.

Corrupt keyboard drivers

Generally, if you are using a corded keyboard, it should automatically get recognized and the built in Windows drivers should work.

If you are getting a wireless keyboard, make sure you have the latest driver/software and have that installed.
