My Samsung N150 keyboard aren't working even if I install other OS, what can I do to solve this problem?

The keyboard maybe faulty ot the keyboard chip in the laptop maybe faulty.
Connect an USB keyboard to your laptop and if this keyboard works then most likely the laptop keyboard is faulty or may the keyboard cable is loose and needs reconnecting to the motherboard.

Keyboard doesn't work

To determine if the motherboard is faulty, connect an USB keyboard to your laptop an see if the keyboard works properly. If so then the laptop keyboard may only need the keyboard connector unplugged and then plugged back onto the motherboard.

Acer 5570z keyboard is locked..Mouse works fine. Tried it in safe mode..keyboard still wont work..but mouse will...Even reloaded the operating system and keyboard still doesnt work..

Hook an external keyboard to the laptop, if okay! replace the laptop keyboard. If no change check bios setting to make sure the laptop is not disabled, and reset bios to factory default.

Compaq cq60 keys not working

The keyboard maybe faulty.
Connect an external keyboard to youe laptop and if all the key work on this keyboard then most like the laptop keyboard is faulty.
If this external keyboard also malfunctions then the keyboard controller chip on the laptop motherboard is faulty and it would not be worth repairing as this is an old model laptop.

Keyboard not working

Do you have a spare USB keyboard you could try using? If an external keyboard works just fine - but the actual keyboard on the laptop does not respond at all - it is likely that the keyboard has failed.

If you are comfortable taking your laptop apart, you can try to unplug the keyboard and plug it back into the connection point on the laptop. DO NOT TRY THIS UNLESS YOU ARE 100% COMFORTABLE WITH REMOVING THE LAPTOP KEYBOARD.

If you can get the keyboard to work by reseating the connection then that is awesome! However, the problem with laptop keyboards is that there isn't a solid way to tell if the keyboard is bad, or if the motherboard connection for the keyboard is bad. The only way to know for sure is to pay to have the keyboard replaced. If that fixes it, then that is great! But - if paying to get the keyboard replaced doesn't fix the computer, then you will be looking at an expensive motherboard repair.

If an external USB keyboard does work, it may be a temporary solution until you are ready to have a certified technician replace the built in keyboard.

The keyboard on my laptop is locked and i cant use it to search but upon startup it works and i can input the password to open it and then it locks again

It sounds like your keyboard device driver. It may have been "updated" automatically.
Do you have a spare USB keyboard or can you remove one from a desktop temporarily?

Power OFF the laptop and plug in the USB keyboard. Power ON laptop.
Use the USB keyboard, not the laptop keyboard for this procedure.
First, does the USB keyboard work w/o locking up?

Anyway, Go to the "Device Manager" by right-clicking "My Computer" and select "Manage".
A list of Your computer devices will appear on the right window. Expand the +Keyboard and find the HID Keyboard Device associated to your laptop. (Pick one by checking the properties of each one to see which one may not be working)

(( btw, HID = Human Input Device ))
You can either "UNINSTALL" it or "UPDATE DRIVER"

When finished, reboot, remove USB keyboard if you want to and the laptop keyboard will work just fine, or the OS will "find" it first , then start working ok.

Follow the steps, it will work.
