All of a sudden I can't type from the internal keyboard. No response at all. Did I change a setting somewhere? Is there anyway to restore Vista to a previous date? If so how? I am growing to dislike vista! Thanks to anyone that can help here,

Re: Laptops built in keyboard not responding
Hahaha, i disliked vista the day tried it, had so many bugs it was unbelievable! check that there are the latest drivers for you keyboard, maybe of the laptop's manufacturer site (would like the make and model :D) and have you tried upgrading to SP1? something like 551 bugs were fixed, maybe your keyboard error was one of them. And if you want to do a system restore, rimply go into control panel, system properties, and on the left i think there should be an option giving you the option to restore to an earlier time. This will restore settings, drivers and programs but you WONT lose ANY files :D

Sometimes its just down to the Regional settings not set up correctly so the " and the @ are reversed with US and UK keyboards. However, Laptops have the in built functionality of using a number pad when the NUMLOCK key has been pressed, there may not be a light to show this !!!! The following keys will be designated as follows until the NUM LOCK is pressed again.
check the language bar. It's most likely changing from your default language to a secondary language. Set your prefered language to default and if that doesn't help, try to uninstall your secondary language.
If you still need your secondary language you then have to reinstall it but it most often solves problems like this.
Hi. HiD Data is basically a control driver base located in the system 32 file bank. these drivers control mouse, game controllers and keyboard functions as well. Usually when this message box comes up, it is signaling a sudden change that may have occurred during a failed boot session or, sudden changes in the windows system 32 file base. these sudden changes can happen when there is a windows update thatisn't quite compatible with the current version of one or more of the HID driver components or, if the OS has experienced a virus hit or , malware.
This may not be an issue at this time but, if the message box frequency level increases, i would recommendreinstalling the OS by using the repair option or, the restore feature.
