Packard Bell Easy Note TS, same issue. Seeing as windows used standard driver I assumed this was done on a hardware level. And turned out there is a BIOS option to disable that.

How do I open up my easy note Packard bell lap top to see why they keyboard is not working? And is there a way to test the keyboard before buying a new one?


yes, There are screws on the back side of your laptop that do not remove but do loosen and release the keyboard. release the keyboard and gentely get keyboard to pop up and reseat connection to the keyboard to the main board. normally on laptops, keyboardsare able to lift where the f keys are and then slide in the direction of space bar to f keys. this needs to be done slowly with ease

I buy PC packard bell easynote_TS11HR-032FR and the touchpad does not work, when i use my pc for the first time.


Check this:
Many laptops with touchpads have a switch or a keyboard combo that will disable the touchpad. Look to see if there is a little button you can push located near the touchpad. Alternately, there is normally a Fn-special function key combination you can use. You press the Fn key and also the special function key that has a little symbol on it that looks like a touchpad. That can turn the touchpad on or off.

First makes sure to dry the keyboard well somehow and try it after that. Turn the laptop upside down and try to let it dry.

If that does not work after it has dried well I think you need to replace your keyboard.

Meanwhile you can connect an external keyboard.

I hope that helps. I do not think you can do more.
