You must test the troubleshooting in TAb in hardeare in the utiltity for keyboard icon in the control panel.
2) you must test the keyboard in another computer is good idea.
3) However you can go to control panel and use the utility system restore and put the last date that you know was working.
God bless you

SOURCE: hp laptop keyboard won't type "b n 1"or ''tab esc'' other keys ok..

Either your keyboard cable needs to be reseated or your keyboard is going bad and needs to be replaced. The keyboard cable is under the keyboard and it attaches to a slot on the motherboard. You'll have to partially disassemble the laptop to get to it. Hopefully you're not having this problem because you spilled a liquid on the keyboard.

Here's a fail safe alternative. Bring up google's website www.google.com and in the search box type "download.cnet.com" (without the quotes) and click the link to go to their site. When the site comes up look immediately to the left and you will see a gray area that says Find Software. Type in "free virtual keyboard" (without the quotes) and click the mirror to search. It will bring back a page and the Free Virtual Keyboard is listed first. Look to the right of it and click the Download Now button. Download and install it. Once it is install you can look in Start/Programs and right click on it and select Pin to Start Menu then right click again and select Desktop (Create Shortcut). It's a neat keyboard to have just in case your real keyboard goes bonkers. You simply click on the letter with your mouse pointer that you want. It has all the functionality of a physical keyboard. You can open a web page, place your mouse in the address line then bring up the virtual keyboard by clicking on it from your desktop or start menu and it will sit on top of whatever you were trying to do. You can move it to see the typing area as you click on a letter. It works the same way if you opened a word document. In your case anytime you need the space bar, just click on it.

SOURCE: my laptop won't type at all


test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive, SATA

the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty ?


even something as small as a faulty fan lead can cause this problem

computers need power and data to travel through every working device and to have an end for a computer to be able work


could be a memory dump you might have to many programs running at one time putting to much stress on the CPU not having enough ram will do this

might be getting to hot make sure the CPU has a dust free secure seating and has THERMAL paste


if you right click in the bottom toolbar select task manager applications you will see whats running also processes you will see whats ticking over if you see something running that should not be select end now you might even uninstall that program and some unnecessary programs


check your computer ram and cmos battery to make sure they are securely seated and the battery has plenty of charge

some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in


hope it helps

I have a medion laptop that wont connect to the wireless router or the ethernet?


What Operating System?

Try connecting to another secured network and when the key comes up just type anything since you won't know it. Then go back and try connecting to yours. Hopefully it will allow you to put the key in again.

Go to network settings and look at the wireless connection. Highlight your network and click properties. See if it will let you put the key in there. Also look at the Authentication Type, you may have the wrong authentication type (WEP, WPA, WPA2). You can check to see which type the laptop that you say connects successfully has, then make sure you use the same Authentication Type.

I spilled coffee in my compaq laptop./ The computer works and will turn on however the keys are sticking. so I cant type a sentence. Is there a qucik fix for this>


take your laptop to the expert who can deal with laptop well.don't try to clean the keyboard yourself because it is easy to remove the keys from the keyboard but then you won't be able to fix them on the keyboard properly. If you still try to remove the keys you can damage the keyboard's key sensors.

I can't remember my password to log in on my netbook.


hold f10 or whatever key that it tells you is the setup key when you first turn it on. Navigate the bios with your arrow keys. Find the option that lets you boot into safe mode with the command prompt. Boot it into safe mode and when you get to the command prompt type "net user *" but type that without quotes and instead of the you should type you're user name without the 's. It will then ask you for a password and you'll type in that but it won't show you typing anything. It will ask you to type it again so do that and then boot your system back up and then hold f10 or whatever key it is and to go into the bios and select boot regularly from the options in there.
