Whenever I start my Ubuntu my keyboard too is not working to type in password to login. By fluke I ticked on the onscreen keyboard then my keyboard worked. Next time when I login again the keyboard doesn't work and I have to uncheck the onscreen keyboard this time and it works. So, alternatively I am doing this to login everytime.

Having worked for IBM for 20yrs I do know how to use a keyboard! I have tried many suggestions found on the web to no avail and I wonder why it seems to have been happening for so long. There are very few up to date solutions pertaining to Zorin 9 and or Ubuntu 14.10
I am running this on a dedicated test system with no other OS on it.
When I try to follow some of the suggestions, the supposed options are just not available. Zorin seems to have very few options for Keyboard and Mouse. Thank you.

SOURCE: I love Linux (Zorin OS 4) on my netbook having

Thank you for using FixYa

I know exactly what you mean because it annoyed me as well. I am using Mint Julia
My solution was to go into the Preferences then Passwords and remove the password and make it a blank instead of putting in any characters. Then in my Gnome Desktop, when it comes on, I click once on switch users and then another mouse click on my user name which is already highlighted, and I am in. That makes it just 2 mouse clicks instead of entering a password, not exactly the final solution, but tolerable. Maybe you could do likewise. Have you tried asking in a Linux Forum, they should have a better solution.

I hope this was useful and please comment if this was helpful to you.

Can a computor using XP windows still be updated

you could use the hack from here:

but there is a notice from Microsoft about the reliability of the hack.

if your machine has a dvd burner you should switch to a Linux distribution, I am favoring Zorin since it has a Windowsy look and feel. get it from here:
if you go with Linux you can test it out by just running the os from the dvd. make sure you backup before you install since that would wipe everything on the hard drive.

System and video bios shadowed

Get the restore disc from it should clear up the problem..Better yet dump Vista (Windows) altogether and and install ubuntu for free eg. Zorin 9OS 32 bit system. It is kept current until 2019. wheras Vista and Windows XP are not kept current and are vulnerable to hackers. With older systeme there maybe intitial problems getting the wifi and wireless printer to work..(go to linux or Ubuntu forums for help. The Ubuntu system is fast compared with any thing Windows puts out..

Logitech K330 numeric keyboard does not work

I had the same problem and found the solution in a ubuntu forum. Although I use ubuntu, I am currently using windows and oddly enough the solution is same for both platforms. Just change your mouse settings to stop using numeric keypad on your keyboard as mouse. In windows 10, type "Ease of Access mouse settings". Turn OFF "Use numeric keypad to move mouse around the screen". And that should fix it.
