Question about Gateway 2520915 Keyboard

1 Answer

My keyboard is not working!!?? :(

My 8 month old daughter was hitting a bunch of keys and now NOTHING works. I mean the Cap lock and Num lock lights up, but none of the keys work. I have tried turning it off and on, using 2 other keyboards, tried the Shift key trick, but nothing worked. This is an important part, when my computer (Dell) first comes on, I have it set up where I have to enter a password BEFORE the log in screen comes on, where I then have to enter another password. My brother breaks everything he touches ( 4 Play Station 3's, 3 PSP's, 2 80Gb IPods and countless cell phones) so I have to lock him out of my computer. Anyway, so the first screen comes up and it won't let me type my password in, so I cannot even get passed this part to figure out what's wrong. PLEASE help me! I'm about to go insane. I had to swipe my mother's lap top, which is how I am here. Thanks!

    Hi Lyramay,

    I would like to know if the Keyboard is a USB keyboard or a PS2 keyboard or a wireless one. This would help me assist you better.



    Thanks,

Yikes it seems as if the keyboard themselves are damaged and need of replacement though you maybe able to use a USB plugged keyboard (or PS/2 keyboard if supported) but it does seem those keyboards are ruined

I had the same problem. I solved it by pressing the connect button on the back of the keyboard and then pressing the connect button on the wireless connection base. The keyboard and the base will sync up again. Should solve your problem.

Daniel, Sounds like you may have a virus. Hardware issues are usually an all or nothing, either works or doesn't and wouldn't change to different keys on reboot. I would suggest running a virus scan with updated virus definitions. Neil
