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.
Try going into Control Panel, then get to the Hardware folder, pick Mouse, and go to Driver, and update the driver- it could be corrupt.
It sounds like a corrupt driver, and that's where we should start. Of course, the mouse could be bad. I see you have a mac, and I've never had one of those, but get to the folder that has your mouse and reinstall the driver, if you have that option. Hope this helps.
Try downloading the driver in your computer again. The registry file can be corrupt from other downloads. It has happened to mine twice so far in two years The drivers can be found at this link below...Remember I do not know what model you have so a 3000 & a 4000 model link for each are showing for you below here
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.
If you go to the Dell website and click on support they can scan your computer and let you know if you have any missing or corrupt drivers. You will need your model and possibly the service tag number which should be on one of the labels on your computer. Dell keeps some of the drivers on their website
have you made sure that the keys are not stuck, if not lift up the key slightly, NOT so it comes off but then try type. it could be a problem with the motherboard, but i think it is a problem from a "driver" being corrupt. please contact me if you need more assistance
This problem was happening on my system but i managed to fix it easily! What has happened is your itouch software has become corrupt so it will only recognise your keyboard thus the usb connection. You will need to download/install off disc onto your computer again but do NOT go to uninstall program manager on windows as it will not appear there because even though you can access the itouch configuration panel, the database is corrupt and the administrative system will not recognise this. Just download/install via disc and it will just install with no alerts unlike most programs which will recognise the program is already installed onto the system. Once the setup is 92% it will freeze for a second then the found new hardware window will appear on screen go through that process and your mouse is back to normal and your keyboard will work via itouch software.
(Please note that this will only work on windows)
