Keyboard and touch pad will not work

My keyboard and touchpad appear to be locked on my HP G60-120US Notebook PC. I can't find out whether there is a lock key that I inadvertantly hit. I attached external mouse and keyboard to notebook and they work fine. HELP.

The HP50 and HP60 laptops both have a lock button I just discovered by tripping over it today. Couldn't find a description of it in the printed or onboard manuals. This button is in addition to the overall computer lock function key (f6) that is well described. This keyboard/touchpad (k/t) lock button is obvious when pointed out, but less so when those items are already locked out by casual hand motion. The button is located just above the touchpad and is embedded in the border trim of the keypad. It toggles access to your k/t. It has a little indicator light so one doesn't miss it, but it is pretty low-key, if you forgive the pun. Designers can be a little too cool sometimes!

select your operating system and check your drivers.

Most hp's do have a lock key so chek your function keys and see if you have a lock. It's usually the "F6" key on hp's.

How do you unlock the keyboard


Is it that the keyboard is locked so no keys work, or is the touchpad locked so that the mouse pointer does not move?

I've seen more and more people locking the mouse pointer. If that's the case there might be a button to push that is at the top of the touchpad in the middle that toggles it on and off. Also on some brands, you will have to hit either the FN or ALT key and hold it down while you hit the F1 thru F12 key that controls the touchpad. Usually the correct key to press will have the icon of a finger in a square box representing the touch pad.

Unlock keyboard for a Acer AS7540-1284


The Keyboard is locked? Or do you mean maybe the mouse pointer is locked? Look on your keyboard and see if you see anything that resembles a mouse touch pad. Some systems will lock the touch pad, but it can be unlocked by hitting a combination of keys, such as holding the FN key + the key with the touchpad icon.

TOUCH PAD LOCKED


Hi,
Just check whether you have any hot key to disable the Touchpad from the keyboard. You can find this in your user manual or you can find out some symbol with hand on the keyboard. Press FN key and that key.

If you are not able to find this option means go through this step.

1) Switch the PC power off completely.
2) Unplug the power cord and take the battery out.
3) Press and hold the power button in around 60 seconds.
4) Put the battery in and the power cord.
5) Switch the PC power on.

Now you check whether your Touchpad is working or not.
Please let me know the status.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Laptop Touch Pad will not work


if you plug usb keyboard onto your laptop it will probably turn the touch pad off.
If no other keyboard is attached there is usually a switch to turn off the touch pad.
also if you attach a mouse this may disable the touchpad so you dont move the mouse pointer when you are typing

Keyboard doesn't work


Hello,
If keyboard is not working then there is some issue with connectivity of the keyboard.
For touch pad there will be a Fn combination (Fn+f8 or Fn+esc ) and you can try pressing the combination simultaneously.

Thanks.
