    If your keyboard is not responding now its a stuck key or it has disconnected somehow or has died an untimley death. this is not written in granite, but an educated guess...

I think that possibly the keyboard isn't completely plugged in. Several things to try.

1] re-seat the keboard
2] swap keyboards with a 'known' good one [swa[ back is ok as well]

These 2actions should narrow done the issue, I have gotten replacement keyboards at re-sale for $3.00

According to Lenovo support, error 0211 is a keyboard error - keyboard not working. Ebay sell replacement keyboards for £20 - £30 for your x41 which should hopefully fix this error after fitting.

Hi,

3. remove battery
4. press power button and hold for 10-15 seconds
5. plug power cord back into computer and press power button.
6. Check LED’s and listen for power supply fan.
7. If LED’s are on or power supply fan starts spinning, watch for boot screen
8. If coputer begins to turn on, turn it off.
9. Reconnect battery and external devices.
10. Press power button and make sure computer starts.

This should work....all the best

Hi, when i boot my Compaq Pressario 700ap i get a DOS screen the bottom line being that there is an "0211: Keyboard Error". I then have the option of using the 'F1' key to continue with the boot or 'F10'...


First, I would go into the BIOS by pressing the F10 or F2 key during boot. Then look on the BIOS screen for 'keyboard' and see if it is recognized in the BIOS.If it says "not present" then you need to ttoggle the TAB key or SPACEBAR to set the BIOS to recognize the keyboard.
There are other causes for your problem,but try this first.

Keyboard Keys Mismatch error


this could be caused by a couple of different issues:
1st Depending on the operating system you have loaded, it could have the wrong keyboard type or emulation selected.
2nd The keyboard or its cable could be bad, it will not necessarily quit until it goes completely out.

No responce from keyboard


The keyboard is not dead. I have contacted HP about this issue (DO NOT CALL THEM AND HAVE THEM FIX IT! THEY GAVE ME AN ESTIMATE OF $300!) they SAY that it is a hardware issue...

However have found more than one website saying that it is most likely the CMOS battery that has gone dead.

I did not get if the keys are working. If not, check the keyboard ribbon. It might be out of place.
Else, it might be the hdd.

Could be a stuck key somewhere, has anything been wasted on the keypad, tap the keys one by one to refresh is. Could also be that the keyboard is broken.

Fixya me ... thanks!

Press (F1) to resume, (F10) to setup


I need a bit more info to try to give you an accurate solution

Does the screen change after you press "F1" ?

Do you have access to an external keyboard, if so try plugging that in while the computer is off and then using that to press "F1"
