Keyboard stopped working. 6084677980

hi William.
this could be a few things wrong here.
What do you do if your keyboard isn t working? Shut down the PC. Turn the keyboard upside-down (if you have a laptop, keep it open and turn the whole thing upside-down) and gently tap on the back so that crumbs and dirt fall out. Then use a can of compressed air (you can buy this at any computer store for a few dollars) to blow out whatever is still stuck

The keyboard on my Dell Laptop Studio 1640 appears to be frozen. It will not accept any commands from the keyboard. At first the computer booted up naturally into Windows 7 then I could not perform any...

Try connecting an regular old USB keyboard to the computer. Sometimes computers won't boot if a functional keyboard cannot be found during it's Power On Self Test.

If that is the case, then the laptop's keyboard is fried and needs to be replaced.

The keyboard on my dell laptop has stopped working altogether and I can't log back into my computer. All I can do is shut down or restart.

You can hook up a usb mouse or keyboard, then try removing the keyboard from the device manager and restarting the computer. If that doesn't work then the keyboard has probably gone bad and you'll have to swap it out with a new one. They usually pretty cheap via ebay.

Same as above, with my laptop being studio XPS 1640

Well, as long as your pc is under warranty, Call Dell and have the keyboard replaced. it takes 24 hours to order the part, and 15 minutes to replace it. By this time tomorrow, you could be all set like a new 'vette. Good Luck!

Microsoft PS-2 Intelli Keyboard

Don't worry, if u shutdown the computer your keyboard is still on it is just normal so it is not necessary to worry. and next thing is that when you change the PS/2 to usb adaptor, it won't work because, some of the keyboard doesn't support USB port so plz use as previous. altho it is switch on after shutdown the computer it will not bring the problem. so i don't worry. ok byee have a nice day.

  • shutdown and power off your acer laptop
  • then remove the battery out of laptop
  • connect the power and switch on ur laptop
  • let it boot to operating system
  • check if its working now? ur keyboard and mouse should be working now
  • you can now connect the battery and keep working.
  • if u want to power off, put ur laptop in hibernate more, rather than shut-down. so u dont have to reboot next time without battery.
  • if u restart or start ur laptop after a shutdown, make sure to remove the battery first

    i hope this will help.
