    Thanks, but if the keyboard worked on my laptop when I plugged it in I would assume it should have worked on the desktop. I did enable the keyboard in BIOS

In your BIOS, check your security settings and if for some strange reason your keyboard is not enabled upon startup, enable it. Otherwise it could be a faulty keyboard.

Enable keyboard


First, make sure it is plugged in. If it is a USB type, try the other USB ports on the computer to see if one or more ports have failed.

Still no luck? Try differen USB ports each time you boot up. During the boot, enter the computer's BIOS or Set Up area (usually pressing DEL, F1 or some other key). Check for setting regarding keyboard and keyboard type. Make sure they are enabled. If nothing works, the keyboard may be broken - not disabled. Try with another keyboard instead.

My keyboard is locked how do i unlock it?


Maybe you keyboard is bad or your keyboard has been hijacked by a virus.

Make sure you keyboard is plugged in good on the back of the computer. If the end of your keyboard that plugs into the computer is Round and it plugs into the green port on the back of the computer you have a PS2 (serial) type of keyboard and you cannot unplug it and expect it to work if windows has already booted up. If you remove this type of keyboard connection, you have to Reboot your machine otherwise the keyboard is locked.

If the end of your keyboard that plugs into the computer is Flat, then you have a USB type of keyboard that goes into the computer's USB Port. This type of keyboard is Plug and Play so you don't have to reboot if you remove it. If you have this type maybe the USB Port you plugged it into does not work, so try plugging into another USB Port.

Try booting in Safe Mode and see if the keyboard performs.
Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn itback on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFEMODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will lookdifferent to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this isnormal.

My ctrl key on keyboard not function because "ctrl" key always hold down,so i can't press the other key. example when I write on word i type s the function became ctrl+s is saving file not type...


You can either free up the key or you could just plug in a usb keyboard and try that. Be very careful when trying to free up the key they are fragile, did you spill anything on the keyboard. It might not be stuck just shorted out.
Try the usb keyboard option first.

Sony vaio laptop is turning on but the keybord+mouse not working


If your Keyboard and mouse are PS2 type, turn off your system, unplug them and try a USB type mouse and keyboard instead. If you are already using USB type mouse and keyboard, then try plugging them into different USB ports. Bootup in Safe Mode if possible. If you do not have keyboard functionality during the initial boot process, you may have sustained damage to the motherboard. The fact you mentioned a noise (speaker type?) and then lost component function, would indicate a possible hardware failure

Work with an external numeric keyboard


I'm afraid that is not possible. The only way to overcome this is to get a full size USB keyboard and plug it into the laptop's USB port and type using the full size keyboard.

On startup my keyboard doesn't work


Hello iko_gan,

This is actually a problem with USB Keyboards, Make sure that your BIOS is set to boot with USB making USB part of the boot sequence as opposed to an OS driver driven function, and if possible use the USB 1 port and not the USB 2 port. USB 2 is more suited for Hard drives. and why use all of your USB bandwidth for your key board.

This helped me solve my problem in this area.

On booting up, computer can not load keyboard system.


One possible problem is that your PS2 keyboard port at the back of your PC is ruined. In time, those so called "outlets" become loose specially the ones with cables which usually got pulled or tangled and make the port strained and the contacts get loose.
If that is the case, you might need to replace the keyboard port, or just stick with your usb keyboard.
