Is your keyboard wireless? If so, you may need to unplug the wireless adapter and plug it back into another usb port. If your keyboard is not wireless, then try doing the same thing while making sure the cord doesn't have a short.

Keyboard will not work

That doesn't make sense...unless the keyboard is disabled in your profile. If you are using Windows, check the Device Manager and see if that's the case. Can you log on as local administrator?

Dell Keyboar Problem -

This likely is one of two issues. A BIOS setting, and can be changed in the BIOS setup utility accessible at startup.

Or ...

If you are sure you have no computer virus or a hardware conflict than you can modify this setting by editing the registry on the computer. Normally, the computer applies the user settings when the user logs on, but it uses the default user profile when it is first turned on, before the user has logged on. To turn this functionality off, the default user settings must be modified. The Keyboard entry contains user preferences as defined by choosing the Keyboard icon in Control Panel. Entries are found under this registry path:
HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Keyboard
InitialKeyboardIndicators REG_SZ Number set it default to 0.

If not:

* Run the Registry Editor (REGEDIT.EXE).
* Open HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Keyboard (If the Keyboard key isn't there, add it.)
* Double-click the InitialKeyboardIndicators value on the right. (If it's not there, select New from the Edit menu, then String Value, and type InitialKeyboardIndicators for the name of the new value.)
* Change the value to any of the following:
0 - all indicators off
1 - Caps Lock on
2 - Num Lock on
4 - Scroll Lock on
Or, combine them by adding the corresponding values:
3 - Caps Lock and Num Lock on
5 - Caps Lock and Scroll Lock on
6 - Num Lock and Scroll Lock on
7 - Caps Lock, Num Lock, and Scroll Lock on
* Close the Registry Editor when you're done.

All the change should take effect when next time you start Windows.

My keyboard has several keys that have little green charactors on them. For example the u has a 4 and the "i" has a 5 and the "p" has an * I have hit something that turned this feature on and now i can't...

You can put your keyboard in "Numlock" mode if you have a lot of numeric data to input and use these keys for numbers rather than the normal letters. The key sequence varies by manufacturer but it's typically going to be labelled with a rectangle around text such as "NUM LK" and is activated by holding in the FN key and then pressing the labelled key. Deactivation is the same.

As you've found out the hard way, it can be really confusing when this happens accidentally.

Okay when I type the letters on the top row I also have the number closest to it for example when I type e it comes up e3 or E# that happens with every letter on the top row or vise versa number and letter...

Your keyboard is faulty - either due to a mechanical failure or spillage.

This is pictures of a different brand, however the premise is still the same...

An easy repair - remove the top trim bezel (just under the screen) this will allow access to 2-3 screws.

Remove the screws, and tilt the keyboard out.

Remove the ribbon cable.

Install reverse of removal.

thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated!!

Logitech easycall mouse works but the keyboard will not

I had the same problem. Some keys on the keyboard would work, others not. It seemed to happen after an update to the SetPoint software. I got it fixed! I tried everything and in the end this is what worked:

1. I started the computer and obviously could not log in.
2. My mouse worked, my standby key worked, but no other keys.
3. I used the mouse to activate the on-board keyboard in Vista (left bottom corner).
4. I put in my password and logged in.
5. I opened up an app (Excel in my case) to try to type something in.
6. As soon as I hit a key a Logitech wizard for encrypted communication came up!!! It asked me to press the connect button and then enter a code it displayed (keyboard worked at this point).

From this point on the keyboard worked!!

Note to Logitech.... great job on the extra security... bad job on the implementation... if your wizard runs after a PC is rebooted that has login passowrd protection.... how are the users supposed to log in??
Note: My logitech upgrade hung... with mouse and keyboard becoming unresponsive so I had to do the hard power off... maybe the wizard was meant to run after the upgrade before I had to force a restart, but this is something that should be taken into account as well.

It sounds as if the keyboard is shorting out internally. With the cost of keyboards so low (many times under $10), it's not really worth troubleshooting it very long or hard - a better fix likely is to just buy a new keyboard.
