SOURCE: PACKARD BELL EASYNOTE MV35-202 keyboard and mouse pad won't work

The first thing to do is my computer properties see if your keyboard and mouse are showing in there
If they are you need to update the drivers.
If they are not showing then I would suggest going to control panel and add new hardware installing that way
Try using a standard mouse instead of usb
If you cannot get on try restarting in safemode to correct your problem.
Or if you have a cd that came with the mouse and keyboard reinstall it.
Let me know if this helped also did you reinstall the same version of windows

SOURCE: Keyboard stopped working after a Windows update

First thing I would do is get the dell diagnostics disc (hold f12 at start up) and run that, while trying to use the keyboard. (move the arrow keys around and see if they work. you might have to unhook the usb keyboard first) if the keyboard works in the diagnostics area, then its not a hardware issue. (kbd failure would mean no keys worked, or, only some worked sometimes.) You would then need to go into windows device manager and try rolling back the keyboard drivers. If you have full kbd functions outside windows, then you have a windows driver issue. try rolling back, or removing the drivers.

SOURCE: Out of nowhere my Emachines laptop keyboard has stopped working

Sounds like it's either the motherboard or you may need a new bezel.

Another solution that may be cheaper would be to reinstall the operating system. Or do a factory image recovery and see if it's a software issue. First check the device manager to see if there is an obvious driver issue. If not try reinstalling Windows 7.

If that doesn't work then replace the bezel.

If that doesn't work then replace the motherboard.

How do I get my keyboard to work on my laptop after upgrading from windows 7 to windows 10?


Rather than reinstalling try a Google search for (keyboard make/model) windows 10 driver. Without knowing which keyboard that's the best solution available.

Advent 5421 drivers upgraded to windows 7 32 bit starter from vista basic. i need all the drivers ! and the keyboards american all my functions do not work


I would suggest contacting Intel or where you got windows 7 from. I am guessing but I think you had XP before. It is possible new drivers may never be written.

How to replace the keybord on an advent 9517 laptop


Advent laptops are manufactured by DSG International, which owns the names to other name-brand computers such as Acer and Hewlett-Packard.
The Advent laptop keyboard has integrated mouse touch-pad functions that allow you to move the mouse around the screen with your fingers.
Function keys at the top of the board contain alternate ways to exit and enter software applications.

Function Keys
The Advent laptop keyboards function keys are "hot keys" that act as shortcuts to applications and functions on the computer. The function keys sometimes don't work and won't carry out the function assigned to the key. This problem is considered a hardware malfunction, and the solution is to replace the keyboard or use a universal serial bus (USB) keyboard for the laptop. b> Malfunctioning Keys b> Advent keyboards are made of thin plastic. Striking the keys too hard will cause the keys to break or stick awkwardly in the housing unit that supports the keyboard. When these keys get stuck in the housing unit, a pin tool can easily set the keys back on track. If there are too many keys that get stuck or broken, you can purchase a replacement Advent keyboard and have it installed. b> Mouse Problems b> The mouse is located at the bottom of the Advent keyboard but is connected to the keyboard data strip that sends information through the keyboard unit to move the mouse on the screen. If the mouse malfunctions, check the connector under the keyboard to see if it is loose. A loose connector can cause the mouse or other keys not to function on the laptop. b> Electrical Shortage b> An electrical shortage can cause an Advent keyboard not to work properly. A shortage is when the main board of the laptop is not getting the voltage needed to efficiently operate the computer. When this happens, certain devices underperform or become inoperable. Check to see if your power supply is extremely hot or if your system heats up around the keyboard. If so, replace the electrical adapter. b> Wire Damage From Keystrokes b> The wire that is responsible for the liquid crystal display (LCD) on the Advent laptop extends from under the middle of the keyboard to the LCD display unit. This wire is unprotected and can be damaged from striking the keys over the wire. When this happens, the display will not show the correct colors or the screen will go black. To eliminate this problem, purchase a keyboard cover that fits the keys to relieve the pressure between the keyboard and video cable. b> Keyboard Drivers b> Problems have been reported with upgrades from Windows Vista to Windows 7. Windows 7 will not recognize the system drivers that operate the Advent keyboard. To get the keyboard to work, you must load the old drivers in Windows 7 Safe mode, which is used anytime there is a hardware or software discrepancy. Advent keyboard drivers can be loaded from the original restore CD, which is included with the system at the time of purchase.

How do i find the memory slot on my Advent Quantum Q100?


The Advent Quantum Q100 laptop has one Ram memory slot.
The Maximum Total Amount of Ram Memory is 2GB.
It uses SO-DIMM ram memory that is DDR2 at 667 MegaHertz. (667MHz)
Also known as PC2-5300 {SO-DIMM style}

The Ram Memory slot is under the Keyboard.

Past this point I am at a loss to describe how to remove the Keyboard.

1) Either you have to remove the LED cover above the Keyboard, and below the LCD screen to access screws which hold the Keyboard in place, (Computer off, and ALL power removed. AC adapter {Charger}, and Battery),

OR,

2) The LED cover (Power On button, LED's, etc, are in the cover), has to be removed, and there may be one, or two screws coming up from the bottom of the laptop, which hold the Keyboard in place.

Regards,

Replacing keyboard for advent 7108 laptop


I have had the same problem several times over and it is VERY likely that the liquid has reached other components (specifically the motherboard) and will corrode anything that the liquid has come to rest on. The keyboard itself is easy enough to remove and replace, but the only place I am finding parts for advents is in the UK. This means replacement of the keyboard COULD be costly and in the long run the computer may fail due to corrosion especially if it was pop or juice or any other acidic liquid. Here is the link I found for a possible solution.  http:/www.adventspares.co.uk  if they dont have it, these guys might... http://www.techno-mart.co.uk/advent.html
Good luck, and I hope you havent damaged your motherboard! Kirk
