Here is a solution

1)Insert your linux operation system into the cd rom
2)Now restart your computer.
3)While the computer is starting enter the bios settings by pressing F2.
4)Now search for boot tab.
5)In the boot tab search first boot to cd rom
6)Save the settings
7)Restart the computer
8)Enter the linux installation wizard.
9)Now enter repair mode and let it repair.

By doing this the damaged drivers and files will be recovered.

If this does not solve the problem try other drivers for linux

If you are using both linux and windows,I recommend you not to use both of them in the same computer as there are possibilities that some files may get corrupted.

Why wont my Microsoft multimedia 1.0a keyboard keys function properly in windows 10


First, the mail issue. You may have to reinstall Windows essentials to get live mail to work. If none of the hot keys are working properly, make sure you have updated software and drivers for the keyboard and then use the keyboard software to assign the correct apps to the hot keys.

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.

Dual boot error


In some cases this one solves the problem:

First, try to use PS2 keyboard type, maybe you are using a Usb keyboard that's why it wont work outside Windows mode.

Then if you are inside the Setup Menu sometimes called the "Bios Setup" try to look under the usb functions if it disable change it to enable, in this way all your usb device will work even if you are not in Windows Mode.

Logitech keyboard on linux-driven machine.


Dear sirs,

I did what I should have done before posting the problem.
I retrieved some packages out of the build-in repositorie,
and now most of the function-keys are operateble.
However, to solve the rest of the problem, I have to
build and install Wine (the Windows-emulator in order
to to use the cd-rom that came with the keyboard.

Thanks for your concern in this matter.

IMPORTANT:
  • If software has been installed for use with a third-party keyboard or mouse, uninstall the software to ensure there are no conflicts.
  • On AMD™ or Transmeta™ processor-based computers, the function keys are hardware controlled and not controlled by a hot-key utility.
NOTES:
  • The volume button, brightness key, and disc eject button on some computers will not work if the HotKey Utility application is not running.
  • The Magnify button and the Fn keys will not function properly before the operating system has finished starting.
  • The setting may not be saved if the ESC key is used to close the Fn display. Press the ENTER key or allow the Fn display to close automatically to save the setting.
  1. Click the Start button, then click Run .
  2. In the Run window, next to Open , type MSCONFIG .
  3. Press the ENTER key.
  4. In the System Configuration Utility window, click the Startup tab.
  5. On the Startup tab, under Startup Item , ensure that there is a check in the HKserv checkbox. NOTE: If HKserv is missing, reinstall the HotKey Utility application and the Sony Utilities Library.

Microsoft wireless keyboard 3000


not all microsoft keyboards are compatable with linux the best keyboard that is compatable with linux and windows is the Cherry CyMotion Master Linux keyboard it was relesed in oct this year.

The Linux keyboard has the Linux penguin logo, Tux, instead of the Windows start key and features 29 hot keys. The hot keys are configured for the Linux operating system and desktop applications, simplifying actions such as cutting, copying and pasting text, and moving between Web pages.
