Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

Laptops built in keyboard not responding

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,

Hey there!

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

Good luck and keep in touch over how this goes

The keys on my wireless HP keyboard suddenly stopped working. None of them work.


Have you tried changing the batteries? Also, you may have to re-sync the keyboard with the receiver.

The euro symbol is under the 5, how do i type this?


Hello,

The keyboard shortcut for the € symbol is Alt Gr + 5. However if this does not work, you may also enter the following key combination : Alt+0128.

You have to maintain the Alt key pressed while entering the 0128 code.

Hope this helps you.

Keyboard not responding.


Your problem sounds more like the system running slow rather than the keyboard being the issue.
Do routine maintenance and cleanup on your system to see if it helps it.

To start the Disk Cleanup tool and specify the hard disk to clean by using a command line, use the following steps:
  1. Click Start, and then click Run.
  2. In the Open box, type the following line and then press ENTER
    cleanmgr
  3. click OK
  4. The dialog box that opens shows you the files it will remove to clean up the system
  5. Make sure Temporary files is checked
  6. Click OK
Then check your system for malicious software.
  1. Go to http://malwarebytes.org
  2. Download and scan the system
  3. Remove all found infections.
  4. Restart your system
These things should help if this is the cause.
If your problem still is present, change the battery in the keyboard. A battery that is close to empty will cause this as well.

Let me know if this resolves your issue.

Mouse not responding


Normal 0 Turn the mouse over and find the small rest/connect button on the bottom of the mouse and press it. This should connect the mouse to the receiver and work properly. If not, try pressing the receiver button and then press the button on the mouse. This should be done whenever you change batteries or glitch. Hope this helps you. Bud

The keyboard, built in and external mouse do not respond.


If BIOS menu has User password set then nothing will work until you type in the password. The keyboard will appear not to be working until correct pwd is typed. Try entering your password like this
pwd1<Enter> pwd2<Enter> pwd3<Enter>
where pwd1 is your guess at the password and <Enter> is when you press the <Enter> key on keyboard.
