Start your PC and press F8 several times until the boot menu comes up. Then select "Safe Mode with Networking". Now get some or ALL of the FREE programs below...

Download, Install and Run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware:
When Installing choose the non-pro version.

Download, Unzip, Install and Run TDSSKiller:

Download, Install and Run Super Anti-Spyware:

If you have an outdated Anti-virus program then Download, Install and Run Avira Anti-Virus:
Make sure to select ALL of the "threat categories" when you install or configure Avira...

You should be in pretty good shape if you run and install all of these programs.

Ways to take care of yaour keyboard

Things You'll Need
  • Computer Keyboard
  • Cotton Swab
  • Isopropyl alcohol
    • Before doing any type of cleaning make sure to turn off your computer and disconnect the computer keyboard from it.

    • Once the keyboard is unhooked, turn it upside down and grab the can of compressed air. With the keyboard still upside down, tap it and watch all of the dust and grime fall out. Repeat this step 1 or 2 more times until nothing falls from the keyboard when you turn it upside down.

    • Take the cotton swab and dip it into the alcohol before cleaning the sides of the keyboard

  • If you want a more thorough cleaning, remove all of the keys from the keyboard and take a moist cloth and wipe away the dust. Also use the can of compressed air to vanish away grime particles.

  • Never use a wet towel on your computer keyboard

  • Turn off your computer and then unplug and reseat your keyboard. Occasionally computers will experience glitches that prevent drivers and software from loading correctly. Restarting your computer and plugging your keyboard back in will often solve the problem. If not, View your keyboard's status in the Device Manager. To access the Device Manager, open the Windows Control Panel and click on "System and Maintenance." Scroll down to the third section from the bottom and click on "Device Manager." In the menu bar at the top of the Device Manager window, press the button called "Scan for hardware changes." Windows will now scan your computer for any new or malfunctioning hardware. Once the page refreshes, go down the list of devices and click on "Keyboards." Right-click on your keyboard and select "Properties." A new screen will then pop up to tell you whether Windows thinks the device is working properly. If the system indicates the keyboard is not working properly but doesn't give you instructions on how to fix the problem, .

  • Visit your keyboard manufacturer's website and view the support or troubleshooting sections. Find the "Search Help" (or similarly named) box and enter your keyboard model number (this can be found on the bottom of your keyboard on a sticker or engraved in the plastic).

    I want to join a kyeboard in my loptop but the kyeboard is not working.

    Have you checked the status of the keyboard in the control panel/system/device manager yet? Do you have a cd that came with your keyboard you can put in? Click on Keyboards icon in your control panel and see if it is detecting it. If not go to Add new hardware icon in control panel and do a plug and play search to see if it comes up on screen.

    Keyboard stopped working, tried it in notepad, tried removing battery,

    Check in the Device Manager for the Keyboard presence. If the keyboard does not appear it means that the keyboard doesn't commuicate with the mainboard anymore. If the keyboard appears installed and ok in the device manager, open on-screen keyboard from accesibilty and press every button on the keyboard, you should see on the computer display if any of the buttons work. If some buttons work and others don't it means that your keyboard is broken and only service can help you.

    Keyboard won,t work but every thing else does, cant seem to get the keyboard wire to click into board?

    Try to reinstall your keyboard. Put on your PC, and click on the menu, Setting, Control panel, and Add hardware wizard. Just follow the instruction to reinstall your keyboard. Or you can left click at the Control panel, Systems, Hardware, and the Device Manager. Then, click at the keyboard, right click properties and status. If the status says the device
    is working properly, try putting on another keyboard
    and see if it works.

    My computer tayping rong words


    Check the device status in the device manager.
    Please check if the keyboard and touchpad are listed correctly without any yellow exclamation marks.

    But you should try to reinstall the drivers again even though the keyboard and the touchpad were recognized properly.
    In this case I would recommend removing the keyboard and the touchpad from the device manager and then you should reboot the notebook once again.

    After Vista has rebooted the both devices should be recognized again and should work. To find the drivers try asking the online chat at toshiba for the driver if its not listed in the driver download page.

    Dell wireless adapter for Windows XP Media Centre can not find keyboard

    The first thing to do when you have a hardware problem is always to go to Device Manager :Start>My Computor{left klick on My Computor}>Properties>Hardware>Device Manager.In the drop down,find your device that is giving you problems.Double klick on the device and see what Windows says about it ,whether it needs drivers or has a physical problem.Your USB adaptor seem to be working OK since it is oscillating ,meaning that it is searching for the Keyboard transmission to lock on.This means that you have loaded the correct driver software for the usb device.I suspect that your problem is with the Keyboard power-make sure you have installed the batteries correctly{polarity check}When all is working properly,you should find the keyboard listed under Keyboards in Device Manager.Double klick on it to see if it is working properly.Your USB device should appear under USB Controllers.Regards
