If you can get into the bios settings using the keyboard but when it get to the windows logon screen the keyboard stops working then it could be driver issue within windows.
Get hold of a usb keyboard, and plug it in to the laptop with the power off, start the pc, if the usb controllers are enabled in the bios you should be able to use the other keyboard until you work out what the problem is with the laptop keyboard

good luck

Im using a 2Wire Gateway DSL connected via ethernet to a Mac G4, I also have a laptop running windows vista and it has strong wi-fi connection, sending packets at optimal levels and speed. BUT Problem


Vista has a well known flaw of not allowing you to easily change access rights after selecting "public network" in the initial network connection screens. The easiest fix is to change the name of your wifi access point, reconnect, and be absolutely certain to select "home network" when the prompt comes up.

The best solution however is to ditch that crummy excuse for an operating system and upgrade to Windows 7 or 8.

My son switched uses of the ctrl and the Windows keys. How do I revert back to original uses. My son does not recall how he did it and I have googled trhis but to no avail


Probably he changed the registry using "regedit" (run it: Start, type regedit in the box, Enter)
Here is the keyboard layout location:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout

For your information, there is an apps; it is called SharpKeys. It can change the key function very fast.

How do I screen shot from my hp elitebook if I am running windows vista?


You need to press PrtScr or Print Screen button to capture the screen to the clip board. I believe on your laptop you need to hold the fn key down to select it. On the bottom left of the keyboard is a key that has fn on it. Any key on your keyboard that has a second function will need the fn key to access this second key function. PrtScr button should be on the top row right hand side of the keyboard.

Hold down the fn key and press the PrtScr key and then you can paste it into a document or paint or whatever. The PrintScreen function works in versions of windows I have ever used, from Windows 3.11 for workgroups to Windows 8.

Hp dv6000 keyboard not working properly


When you use your HP laptop for work or just to surf the Internet, it's very frustrating when the keyboard locks up.


It can also be expensive if you need to hire a professional to fix your keyboard.


Luckily, whether you know what caused the keyboard to lock up or not, often with advanced troubleshooting you can solve this problem yourself.


Power your laptop off completely.


Take the battery out of the laptop. Typically the battery is located underneath the laptop towards the top.

Leave the battery out for 30 seconds.


This will allow the laptop to refresh itself.


Put the battery back into the laptop.


Power your computer on.


Once your computer has rebooted, check to see if the keyboard is working.


Open the "Start" menu on your laptop, if the keyboard is still locked up.


Click on the Control Panel.


Go into the "Accessibility" options.


Open the tab labeled "Keyboard".


Make sure none of the boxes have a check in them.


If the laptop has Microsoft Vista as the operating system, go to the "Ease of Access" option and go to "Change how your keyboard works."


Make sure none of the boxes in that section are checked.


Click the "Save" button.


Exit the Control Panel and begin typing to see if the keyboard is now working.


Hope this helps

I am having HP dv5-1102tu Pavilion notebook. After notebook power on, caps Lock & Num/Scroll lock continously blinking..... so kindly provide me solution.


open up the on screen keyboard in accessories>>ease of access. and then find all the drivers for your keyboard online. AFTER finding them online, then reinstall them.

if this doesnt work i would back up only my files and do a fresh install of windows.

Please search google for hp keyboard problems because there are MANY of them. recently i just had problems with my hp laptop keyboard.

BTW i sent in my laptop to hp and they just changed the keyboard no questions asked so if all else fails or if you dont want to reinstall windows or the drivers just send it to HP.

Im using vista as my os. and my laptop is hp pavilion, both my control keys are not working. what should i do?


You might have changed settings of stickey keys

Check the setting in start- control panel- ease of access center- make keyboard easier to use.

Go to sticky keys -uncheck the box.

Also check the other settings in it.

It will resolve your issue.

If yes.. if not..you might need to remove the keyboard driver from device manager.

Have you tried powering down the laptop, and rebooting with your recovery disk in the drive? If that doesn't work, try rebooting again with an external keyboard attached. If the external keyboard works, then it's not your OS.
