    I have the exact same problem - no 'F' keys are working. This includes alt+F4 to close programs, F2 in excel to enter data in a cell, F5 for refresh....anybody know how to fix it?

    Im using Vista, a Microsoft Wireless Laser Desktop 3000 keyboard, Dell Inspiron Desktop.

Entire Keyboard and Touchpad don't work! Compaq Presario CQ60

Fantastic, thank you for posting above that removing the battery sorted the problem. I had exactly the same problem as you with being able to sign in with my password but neither the keyboard or touch pad worked past this point. It's weird that the keyboard worked for signing in with the password but then didn't work anywhere else. Wonder what causes the problem coz I can't think of a logical explanation. Anyway I didn't have to hold the on/off button down for 2 mins. Just removing the battery and then replacing it cured it. I can't thank you enough for helping me to solve this.

The fuktion fro F-Tasts on the keyboard

The function keys are software dependant. Try holding alt key down then hit F4. Most programs use F1 to call HELP file. In various programs read the associated help file and it would indicate if the Function keys are used.

Keyboard problems

Keyboard is shot. They do that due to the heat laptops generate. I've probably replaced 200 laptop keyboards in the past 5 years. You can buy one on ebay for about $21.00. Ray
