Lenovo 3000 v100 keyboard problem

Hi there,
I have had my Lenovo laptop for just over a year now. I think perhaps a few months after I got it, once in a while, the keyboard would suddenly just stop working. This happens in phases - sometimes twice a week, and sometimes nothing for a few months.
When this happens the mouse still works, but nothing on the keyboard at all. I wonder if I am pressing a keyboard lock button by accident?

Anytime this happens I just reboot, and it's fine - it's just really annoying if I'm in the middle of something.

Any help?

thanks!

Myra My keyboard is locked. An external keyboard also fails to work.

The function keys for things like screen brightness work fine, Fn F5 brings up the wireless config window, etc... So the keyboard is actually working, but the laptop is not accepting input from it.

The mouse works sometimes, and not others.

No notable changes were made, and rebooting does not fix it.

The machine is used for editing text files, exchanging email, and other light duty tasks.

Rebooting the machine does not fix it.

Remote desktop works, so I can log in and use my files and software, but I eventually need to unlock the stupid keyboard.

Thanks!

Lenovo 3000 v100


go to control panel then select programs and features, uninstall lenovo readycomm and restart pc. If you still have the same problem, uninstall the wireless driver in device manager and restart your computer. Restarting the computer would automatically install the driver that you removed earlier.

You can also update your drivers from the lenovo website: http://consumersupport.lenovo.com/en/driversdownloads/drivers.html

Lenovo 3000 C200 shuts off spontaneously


Others have reported that a battery going south (even one that still holds a charge) can cause some heat sensor to go into the red zone and shut the machine down. You can test this by pulling your battery and running your v100 exclusively on A/C--does this resolve the problem?

I discovered on my v100 that running the latest version of AVG (8.5) causes my hard drive to warm up enough to set off a heat sensor, shutting the machine down. I have to run the virus scan at the "slow" setting to avoid this problem.

Sounds like your keyboard is either not connected securely or it is faulty.
