Sounds like dirt or some spilled soda.
-- Had the same problem after an OJ spill. --
If you feel comfortable about removing the keyboard, disconnect all the wires and cables, then kive the keyboard a thorough washing. Then let it dry overnight.
If that doesn't sound like something you want to attempt, then you will have to take it in to a computer shop.

    Solution #1, Go to RUN type in 'msconfig'.
    In startup uncheck MotiveSB.
    Try to reinstall the keyboard driver.

Keyboard locks up


The only viable solution is to replace the keypad. They can be purchased on ebay, amazon and many other discount web sites. I am including a link with a good set of directions that includes pictures.

Don't worry, it's really not as hard as it looks. Just take your time and you will do fine.

Blue characters on the keyboard when I type


It is a combination of key known as "Function" (Fn, for short). You have to press it and hold while pressing other keys showing the blue letters on it. The most common use is to make a virtual Numerical Keypad on laptops, so you can perform calculations. To be back to normal mode, you need to press FN+F8 (or the key with the Calculator icon).

Keyboard not functioning


key board dead , correct. ? even the caps lock key will not toggle its led.
my guess is you bought a clone keyboard from china, on fleabay
and its dead. as many are, some are wired wrong.
the ribbon cable on mine fits to a special connector that likes to break easy, is your broken this locking jack there?
is it plugged in upside down?
why did you buy a keyboard. was the other dead.
when did the keyboard fail. list week last year, or never
i bought it for cheap with dead kbd....
there is no HP drivers, HP retired this old PC, after 10 years.
so what makes you sure your non HP drivers are any good.?
NO OS stated, not even a clue. XP?
what I'd do , us boot to a Knoppix v7 live boot(dvd/usbstic)(linux)
if the keyboard fails NOW, then its bad KBD. or the jack cable or connector there, (or inserted wrong) or damage. there.
buffer chip is blown up with ESD events. (electrostatic discharges)

is the keyboard dead in BIOS
on ours we hit ESC or F10 and BIOS screens pop
power on hammer ESC or F10 or what the screen tells you to hit.
the go in to BIOS screens, now test the keyboard.
using say the arrow keys to navigate the BIOS menus
if the ESC and F10 key are dead that is a bad keyboard.
what must work here is the electronics.
  1. correct keyboard, some clones will never work.
  2. cable not damaged
  3. cable not upside down
  4. connector there not damage the lock not broken,(easy)
  5. the MOBO buffer chip not ESD damaged.
  6. BINGO BIOS now works by key commands
