Ok I am going to assume that you are using a keyboard with a PS2 plug. Try using a USB keyboard. If the USB keyboard does not work check and see if other USB accessories work.

If you are using a device with a PS2 type plug you should check the drivers for PS2 keyboards by opening control panel then click the "system" icon, then the "Hardware" tab, then "Device Manager"

If you are seeing a yellow exclamation mark then the device driver should be uninstalled. it should automatically reload when you reboot. If the PS2 port is bad you will need to have it serviced by a competent technician.

Computer says I have the control key on, but I don't. I popped off the control keys, cleaned and tried again. Same problem. Tried turning computer on and off twice. Same problem. Now I can't even...


Try using the onscreen key board if possible in safe mode. If you have windows xp hit and hold ctrl+alt+delete twice in a row. This will bribg up the hidden admin account. The type Administrator as the user name and laeve the password field blank just hitting enter. Sometimes these hidden accounts are just overlooked. If you can borrow another keyboard or use an old one. You must ad it with the pc off or it will not read it. Sounds like you just need a new keyboard.
Hope this helps

Keyboard disabled. somehow disable my keyboard


Did you try Fn+F5? You can usually disable the touchpad but keyboard?
Try to uninstall the keyboard from device manager. Right-click on my computer->Properties->Device manager-Right-click on keyboard(HID keyboard device) and uninstall it. Then reboot your computer if you just disabled it windows will re-install the driver automatically and re-enable it

Dell inspirion keyboard 1420 replaced new but not working


Not trying to insult your intelligence but are you sure you plugged the keyboard cable all the way and even into the slot and locked it in place. I have had issues where the contacts were not all the way seated in the slot and not fully locked in and the computer knew the keyboard but I had lost partial function. Below is the Dell diagnostics manual for running start up test on your laptop. If your installation is the original it should have a diagnostics partition on it. These steps will show you how to access and run. Just copy and paste the below in your internet browser address bar, hit enter, you can also print it to follow along when the laptop powers down. Good luck,, ParrotHead PC Repair

Laptop key will not type?


Thet's the "h". Even replacing one key on a laptop keyboard is nearly impossible. Best to order a new keyboard and install it yourself. Keyboards are cheap.

I have just installed a brand new microsoft wireless key board and mouse to my dell and the key board will not type the comand buttons do work the mouse works


Make sure you install the Intellipoint software that came with the keyboard. If you have done this then try resetting the keyboard by pushing the reset button that is either on the back or bottom depending on model. Hope this helps.

Wireless keyboard keys sticking


on most keyboad you can take of each key. Try to get a flat head screw driver and pop it of with some force. You then can clean the keys. If this does not work you might need a new keyboard. Do not use water (or very little)
