Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

Aloha from Hawaii, I have a vaio running windows 7 and the keyboard will not type. Certain keys will open dialog boxes, but not type. When I open word it says "Word has detected that you are holding down the CTRL key. Do you want to start Word in safe mode?" When I say no, word opens but I can not type anything. I can also not type anything is say a Goole search bar, or anything else for that matter. I attached a external keyboard, which functions on my other computer and it does the same thing. I have turned off the sticky and toggle key functions in the accessibility area and that did fix it. It's a permanent not intermittent problem. I received this computer as a gift; it is not a new machine and this is the first time I have used it. So I don't know if this problem existed prior to now. What's your advise? Jessie

    Clarify, the keyboard does work, as does a PS2 USB keyboard, it just won't type words. Certain keys will open other functions. The scr lk and num lks keys will lock and unlock. So keyboard working, not typing.

    I'm not sure this is a OS problem, but perhaps a setting problem. I did a virus scan, that's not it and I don't think the bios is the way to go about fixing it.

    Did not preform the previous suggestion.

    Please advise.

    Someone else has had this problem, the two people I talked to said they had worked with windows 7 for about 3 years and had never heard about it, so they recommended I ask you.

HI,

Think your system was affected with viruses, BEfore confining it as Virus..LEt us check some pre steps to confirm...

First just check to keyboard is actually working before windows loads by pressing either del or F2 (could be another key depending on your BIOS) when the system first starts (i.e. when you see the simple white text on black background) to go into the BIOS.

If that works then great - whilst in the BIOS navigate to the boot options (this will be in one of the menu but it varies from BIOS to BIOS) and check that the cd/dvd rom is set to boot first before the hard disk.

Save (if required) and reboot with your Windows 7 disk in and when you get to the welcome to setup screen and press enter - To setup windows 7 now - NOTE not the repair a windows installation.
Follow the 'wizard' until setup has detected your installation of windows, you will then get the option to repair this copy of windows 7. (Don't setup another installation of windows choose the repair option)
If still the Windows 7 has the keyboard probelm, You have to run a good scanner to trap Keylogger and malware programs running at backgroung..

IMPORTANT: NEVER USE BANKING IR ANY CONFIDENTIAL WEBSITE NOW IN YOUR SYSTEM, IT MAY BE A KEYLOGGER RUNNING BACKGROUND

Let windows do it's thing i.e. go for a cup of tea, have a run, wash the car go for a pint etc. :D and voila everything should be sorted.

This will repair any damaged system files that may have been corrupted and don't worry it won't do anything to your prog's setting etc. it will return to the way it was before.
