Remove all power from your comp. without shutting down. remove external power first. then remove your battery. the drivers are overloaded and confused. this worked for me.

I recommend the above listed solutions. It worked for me. Unplugged power cord and remove the battery while it's still hot. Wait about 10 seconds. Plug it again and boot up. Things will work the normal way. Can't explain why, but I think it's like a master reboot.

What do you mean by taking out the battery? Is this the cord on the right side of the laptop? I also sometimes get a myseterious beep and the keyboard and pad freezes up and then i cant use the laptop and have to switch it off manually. Can anyone help?

I had the same problem. As indicated above, I disconnected to power, removed the battery, reconnected the battery and restart the computer, then everything went fine.

Might be the keyboard has gone out of order. You can try external USB keyboard to check it. If that works your laptop keyboard must have gone out.

Removing the battery from the laptop worked for me. I was going to send it in cause its still under warranty. Thought the keyboard was actually dead since it did not even worked to get into bios. I also tried a Linux live cd. Removing the battery worked lol. Strangest thing ever.
