You have two choices. Upgrade or find the proper driver for the keyboard, or don't allow your computer to go into sleep/hibernation when not in use. You can probably find the driver at Dell's support site. http://support.dell.com

Samsung 700Z5A keyboard input errors


A computer keyboard is a vital component of the computer system. Without a properly working keyboard, your computer is essentially rendered ineffective. If the keyboard is frozen or not responsive, it is experiencing an error known as a "lock out" error. There are various reasons for this error, so you must undergo a process of elimination to figure out the root cause.

Make sure that your keyboard is properly connected to the computer system. Ensure the keyboard's plug is plugged into a USB port. A keyboard error will occur if the keyboard is not attached to the computer or if it is loosely plugged into a USB port. If this is the case, the keyboard will not be recognized and rendered useless. Press the "F8" button repeatedly as the computer boots up. This will take you to a menu in which "Reboot" is one of the options. Select the "Reboot" option. Rebooting your computer should clear up errors in the computer system that might cause your keyboard to lock out. Click the desktop's "Start" button. Right-click the "My Computer" icon and click "Properties." Click the "Hardware" tab and click the "Device Manager" button. Scroll through the "Device Manager" list and right-click on "Keyboards." Click "Properties," then click the "Driver" button. If the keyboard is classified "Disabled," click the "Enable" button to activate it. If this does not help, click "Roll Back Driver" to revert your keyboard driver to its last working state. Rolling back the driver should rectify keyboard errors. Restart your computer system to finalize the process. Hope this helps.

Gateway SX2850-33: Both the wired keyboard and mouse lock up for no apparent reason sometimes after several hours. Reboot corrects the problem until next occurance.


are you sure the keyboard and mouse locking aren't a symptom of another problem? use your computer until it locks again, once it does restart the machine and when it loads press the windows key and the R key at the same time, in the run dialogue type eventvwr, look at the system and application events and look for red X's which are hard errors. then copy/paste the results here

My keyboard is locked how do i unlock it?


Maybe you keyboard is bad or your keyboard has been hijacked by a virus.

Make sure you keyboard is plugged in good on the back of the computer. If the end of your keyboard that plugs into the computer is Round and it plugs into the green port on the back of the computer you have a PS2 (serial) type of keyboard and you cannot unplug it and expect it to work if windows has already booted up. If you remove this type of keyboard connection, you have to Reboot your machine otherwise the keyboard is locked.

If the end of your keyboard that plugs into the computer is Flat, then you have a USB type of keyboard that goes into the computer's USB Port. This type of keyboard is Plug and Play so you don't have to reboot if you remove it. If you have this type maybe the USB Port you plugged it into does not work, so try plugging into another USB Port.

Try booting in Safe Mode and see if the keyboard performs.
Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn itback on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFEMODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will lookdifferent to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this isnormal.

Acer 5100 keyboard and mouse will not work. No


Hello there, this is usually caused by one of three things.

Either something was just plugged in (usually USB) that is interfering that you can just unplug

The computer has locked up for another reason (more in a sec.)

Mainboard could possibly be bad / going bad =(


To test if the computer itself is locked up try plugging in an external USB mouse or keyboard to see if you can get that to work. If it does then that means the keyboard and mouse built in are failing, which again basically means the mainboard is failing.

Hopefully it will be that the computer is completely locked up so when you plug in an external usb mouse or whatever it won't respond. That's easiest to fix.

Please let me know

Thanks
Tim
