Re: Keyboard of a new computer not working
I did a little digging around and your not gonna like what I think the problem is. The problem is your motherboard (unfortunetly). I was reading other posts on other sites, and when other people with the same computer you have, have had the same problems. To make things worse, when HP sent them new motherboards, they to failed to solve the keyboard problem. So my conclusion is that this is a generic problem with that particular motherboard, and replacing it well not solve the problem, because they send you the same motherboard which is new, but still defective.

i had the same problem and called hp i was told to turn off my notebook and unplug the charger from the notebook take the battery off and hold down the power button for 30 seconds then reattach everything my keyboard started working again. i was told this happens because i donot let the battery die on my laptop or i keep it plugged in all the time which is true the notebook has to much static and the keyboard stops working. hope this helps
What a drag! Did the tea have any sugar in it? Anything except water or plain tea won't wash off too easily. Dirt, dust and moisture don't clean off easliy. The question is, did any moisture get onto the motherboard? I've had to wash off a few contaminiated circuit boards and it took a few good soakings in warm water and a tooth brush over all the contacts to really remove the residue. From Coke to salt water I've gotten stuff to work but it has to be very clean. I suggest getting a new keyboard if the laptop is worth it and seeing if that works. It is probably salvageable but all the contacts need to be inspected.
Happened to me too - ended up needing a new keyboard, which I bought but then totally broke the pin when I replaced. So now I just use an external keyboard. You can probably get it to work with a replacement notebook keyboard, but be REALLY careful when swapping it out!
