    the same problem!!!!! What is going on with this computer. This is the third time I am going through this...

  • Leahf Jun 22, 2008

    wft. my computer HP pavillion DV2000 is doing the same thing. The laptop is on, working fine, but not one button on the keyboard is working. Did anyone find a solution to this? I have tried everything!



    Is there a lock keyboard funtion?



    This is so frustrating!



    Hope someone can help!

    This seems to have happened gradually. Occasionally when i would wake the machine up the keyboard wouldn't respond when i typed the password. Now it has become a permanent problem. The touchpad also is unresponsive. I used an external keyboard and mouse successfully, but that defeats the purpose of having a compact laptop. Is this a common problem on this model?

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.

Posted on Aug 13, 2009

I just had the same problem. I took the battery out and put it back in and it worked for me.

On a hp pavilion a 1 1 10n I did somehing to cause


computer keyboards can have faults in several ways, but the most likely is liquids being spilt on them, causing them to do odd things or to just stop working completely.
There's loads of people having problems with this series of keyboards. With some keyboards the speed is wrong for them being checked (USB versions) and you can easily type faster than the keyboard controller can respond so it just goes nuts :-(
Notably, lots of laptops have a problem handling fast typing and tend to throw the cursor around or mis and add random letters.
Try a different keyboard just in case. Check its wire and connections for breaks/damage. Plug it into another USB port if possible some towers give lower power/resources to some USB ports - especially ones on the front of tower cases.
Also, some odd BIOS's allow you change the typing rate/speed (usually quite old ones though). If that value doesn't match your keyboard enough you can have problems.

Keyboard on laptop won't work at all none of the keys work so can't log on


Hi friend, As you have mentioned that the keys on the keyboard are not responding, so, i would like you to do one thing. Please connect any external USB keyboard to your laptop and check if it is working fine.
If it works, it means that the keyboard of the laptop needs to be changed, else, if the external does not work then there is a need to replace the motherboard and the keyboard of the system

CANT ENTER MY PASSWORD TO GET IN MY COMPUTER KEYS NOT TYPING ON SCREEN ITS LIKE THE WIRELESS KEY BOARD IS NOT RESPONDING


My advice would be to put new batteries in the keyboard and see if that works, failing that, pick up a wired keyboard and mouse to log in to your system then re-connect the wireless set to re-install the drivers.

Check the USB connection from your keyboard to your computer. Just out of curiosity, how did you type this question? LOL. Is it only doing it on password fields?
