Anytime a device, (keyboard, mouse, USB device) stops working, the very first point of issue is to re-install the drivers. Drivers have been known to inexplicably become corrupt and will malfunction or not function at all. In case such as yours, where the device is built into the hardware itself, it's best to go to Start>Computer, right click Computer, click on Properties, then click on Device Manager. Find the device that is malfunctioning, in your case, the mousepad, and right click on it...then click uninstall. Reboot your system and it will reload the drivers on restart. Nine times out of ten, this will resolve the problem. There is a slim possibility that your mouspad plug has become loose...if that's the case, you will have to remove the keyboard and reseat the plug. Youtube has tons of videos showing how to do this with various laptops.
That is quite common and can be windows updates or spurious downloads that corrupt the system files. Restoring the complete system will bring it back but it may be something to do with either the system drivers or keyboard driver. Try downloading fresh drivers from msi.
The motherboard on your laptop is not the problem. It is the driver. If it was the motherboard the keyboard would not be working at all.
The keyboard driver is corrupt. Disable keyboard driver then uninstall keyboard driver.
NOTE : This will stop the keyboard from working at all make sure you find the
correct page to download the correct driver, or have the correct driver for the keyboard on CD before following this procedure.
Scan for Hardware Changes and reinstall the keyboard driver. Restart the computer. The numbers should work now.
Just to be on the safe side, you might want to run a full virus scan.
If this does not work I would suggest that the ribbon cable connecting the keyboard to the motherboard may be loose. If you know how than you can fix this yourself easily. If you prefer you can take this to a repair shop and it should cost no more than 20 pounds to fix. It is just a case of opening up the front of the laptop and securing the cable.
the driver is corrupt. Uninstall and reinstall again. you must have the correct driver download from your supplier HP go to www8.hp.com Use the antivirus, and malware for to see if there are some virus or malware. God bless you
press window key + R type devmgmt.msc see if your keyboard and mouse drivers are working properly or not if you find yellow warning sign it means ur drivers has become corrupt and now its time to reinstall ur drivers :-)
It may be broken, unplugged, not compatible, or the drivers are corrupt. Just make sure everything is hooked up correctly, then if so, go to device manager and look for yellow exclamation points. If found, the drivers need to be re-installed or updated. If it is a USB keyboard look under keyboard and USB devices. I hope this helps.
Uninstall the Keyboard driver. Unplug the Logitech keyboard. Restart the computer. Plug the Logitech keyboard back into the computer. Windows should recognise the keyboard and/or the mouse. Place Logitech setup disk in drive. Reload the drivers...
The drivers sometimes corrupt themselves.. You might download the latest drivers for your keyboard/mouse.
Try to unplug and plug back in the keyboard connector ribbon onto the motherboard. Consult the laptop manual if that voids your warranty or not before trying, also look at the documentation on how to dissemble your laptop, it shouldn't be too hard. here's the instructions on how to do it
try, right click on my computer icon>properties>hardware tab>device manager>, then look down the list to your keyboard, click + sign, right click on keyboard select uninstal and then reboot notebook and keyboard will self install.
If still not working your drivers may be corrupt and will need to be downloaded from the Asus support website.
your keyboard driver may be corrupt, go to my computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager and go down list to keyboards, click '+' sign, right click on your keyboard and select uninstal.
Restart your notebook and the keyboard and drivers will be reinstalled automatically and should be as normal, but check for any updated drivers at Sony:-
