Hi, I had some issues with my laptop and I have no ideas how to solve that. Actually suddenly the pad and the keyboard stopped working so I was wondering what could be the source of those problem. Please can anyone let me know if it is a serious problem or not. Thanks very much.

    Well I did that 30 times at least because I was not able to shut my computer down and the problem was still there. So I decided to format my hard drive but I have so many problems to restore my system ... during the Windows set up one step is critical.If I cannot bypass those step the computer stays in that state forever. So I was wnodering if it is a hard drive problem or principal card. I do not know what is going wrong actually. So I do not know what to do for moving forward or diagnose the problem. Please can u let me know if anyone knows ? Many thanks again.

First my mouse pad stop working and then my keyboard. What's wrong with my computer?

Test it with a brand new keyboard. If it does not solve the problem, then your keyboard controller and or your motherboard is dying.

I have an idea pad s10E and the keyboard has suddenly stopped working, even though the mouse works... Could anyone help with telling me what's wrong? Thanks

The connectors inside the laptop are fragile and a good jolt may have unshipped the connector. The mousepad and keyboard have separate connectors. But it usually an easy job to reconnect these types of keyboards. Good luck.

Some of my keys have stopped working

Flip the system upside down with the lid open and shake the crumbs out of the keyboard. If this and a can of air doesn't solve the issue, you will need to replace the keyboard.

When i turned on my laptop my mouse or keyboard was not working and im stuck on the log in page. how do i get my mouse and keyborad fixed

What make/model? Usually, in general, you can take out the screws under the laptop for the keyboard, sometimes (at least with Dell) marked with a "K" next to the screw hole---take out the screws, lift the keyboard out but NOT all the way, and disconnect the main ribbon cable, wipe it off (with your fingers, or an alcohol pad---don't worry about ESD---urban, blow out under everything with a can of air, or with what you can fill your lungs, and subsequently expel, and reconnect the ribbon cable. I have never seen both actually break at the same time----stop working, yes.

NNow it could also be that the CPU is hot, and they are just unresponsive---so first, shut it off, wait 10 minutes, and turn it back on, see if that solves the issue.

Have phun!

My laptop touchpad is not working dell inspiron n5010

you will have to reinstall the drivers and the sofware in your Dell. I think since the touch pad is not working if you use the cursor keys and proceed to the control panel and try to restore the laptop, then if this will reset to an earlier date, then it will solve the issue.
try this out and check to reinstall drivers. hope this helps. Good day

Keyboard and mouse stopped working

I would check the Flex cable's first. If keyboard is not working sometimes this does not allow the pad to work. Here is one of the sites I use for repairs. Good luck and have a good day.

Keyboard and Mouse stopped working.

Ants in the motherboard, Are they on Drugs ?
The keypad, connects to the motherboard via an additional ribbon cable usually, so it,s not always a motherboard issue.
i think they saw you coming, and just trying to make a fast buck.
If the externals working fine, carry on with them and save your money for another laptop.
When you buy a new 1, take it to whoever told you there were ants, in the motherboard, and bounce it straight off the back of his head.
