Generally, if you are using a corded keyboard, it should automatically get recognized and the built in Windows drivers should work.

If you are getting a wireless keyboard, make sure you have the latest driver/software and have that installed.

My mouse pad left and right buttons stopped working on my HP pavilion. External mouse works OK. Also had a problem with tap function but now working after unchecking button function in settings!

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.

Numbers not working

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.

My keyboard is not letting me type nothing, why?

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.

My computer stopped recognizing my wireless keyboard & mouse. Says it's missing a driver or that the device is malfunctioning. Don't think it's a battery prob. Do I need a new driver?...

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.
