Does the problem occur outside of the operating system? For example, can you use the keyboard to enter the BIOS on boot up or if you are using Microsoft Windows, can you press F8 on the keyboard thereby causing the Microsoft Windows Boot Menu to appear?

If the keyboard does not function outside of the operating system, the problem is a hardware problem. If that is the case, you may need to reseat the keyboard cable on the motherboard. Maybe the keyboard cable has come loose.

If the problem is hardware related and reseating the cable does not fix the problem, you may need to replace the keyboard.

Unlock keyboard for a Acer AS7540-1284


The Keyboard is locked? Or do you mean maybe the mouse pointer is locked? Look on your keyboard and see if you see anything that resembles a mouse touch pad. Some systems will lock the touch pad, but it can be unlocked by hitting a combination of keys, such as holding the FN key + the key with the touchpad icon.

When I type on my keyboard, the pointer skips around. I can be typing on one line and all of a sudden, the typing is in another place.


hello, This happens because you are landing some part your hand (palm) in the touch-pad when you typing. which activates the touch-pad and makes sudden movements in the pointer.
This problems for lot of laptop users, unless you can get use to prevent the hand from touching the touch-pad, the only option is getting a USB keyboard where you can plug in without any drivers and type without any trouble.

Mini 1012 can't type anything on keyboard or cursor goes crazy.


It appears that you have a problem with your keyboard or touch-pad assembly. Try plugging in a USB keyboard and mouse and see if it operates normally. If that works then either your keyboard or your touch-pad module is defective. Copy and paste the following link on your internet browser to view the service manual:

My hp pavilion dv6000 touch pad locked up, it no longer responds.


Hi,

Try pressing the button above the touchpad to make the light blue, that should re-enable the touchpad again.

Laptop Touch Pad will not work


if you plug usb keyboard onto your laptop it will probably turn the touch pad off.
If no other keyboard is attached there is usually a switch to turn off the touch pad.
also if you attach a mouse this may disable the touchpad so you dont move the mouse pointer when you are typing

Keyboard problem- cursor keeps jumping around when I'm typing


You may be inadvertently touching the touch pad with the side of your hand or fingers as you type OR the touch pad itself is bad and needs replacement.

How do I partially lock my touch pad so that my palm doesn't screw things up when I type and accidentally touch the pad?


If you look at your touchpad, you will notice a small elongated button, right above it. When you push the button, it will lock the touchpad. However, it will lock it entirely, until you unlock it. You will not be able to move the cursor or click on anything. I don't think HPs have the ability to "partially" lock the touchpad. At least, I was never told anything about it while I was working for them.

Keyboard Malfunction


Does the laptop have a touch pad type mouse device on it? If so, you might accidently be hiting the touch pad with the sides of your palms or thumbs while you are typing a document.
