Re: Keyboard freezes

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.

Sometimes,computer's keyboard and touchpad are locked for some apparent reasons. However, there is a key that you can press there to make it work again. Press FN + F7.

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

Number lock does not work on gatway

Try updating the driver. If it is a driver problem, this should fix it.

Go to Control Panel > Device Manager > click on keyboard > right click on the keyboard displayed and click "properties" > go to "uninstall driver" click ok. Reboot your computer, the driver will reinstall itself automatically.

Hope that helps.

you have your receiver close enough to your keyboard so the keyboard can pick up from it? try resetting the keyboard when the happens and checking your batteries, before resorting to reboot.

Gateway keyboard shows a lock

I'm not sure what I did that unlocked the keyboard, but I was finally able to turn off the green light. I tried rebooting and pressing all sorts of buttons, but the one that might have worked was the 'end' key.

Keyboards Beeps and Freezes

How much memory do you have install in your computer? This may not be the problem but can cause the problem you have if you don't have enough memory installed.
Hope this helps. Bud
