Just out of curiosity, what do you mean by "reconnect"?
Did you physically disconnect it? To correct this, put it back in the slot for the keyboard data strip by pulling up the plastic pieces on the sides of the input and placing the data strip inside and pushing the plastic back down.
But I am assuming you mean reconnect via your actual operating system.
The easiest way is to enter the device manager, either through Control Panel on Windows Vista & 7 or through Control Panel, System, Hardware, and then Device Manager.
A tab should be available for Keyboard. You may see a Yellow Triangle with an exclamation point, meaning that the driver is messed up. Double click on the Keyboard device button and go to the Driver Tab and Choose to Update the driver, and then choose automatically to search for updates. If your driver is already up to date, and you recently did a windows update, choose to rollback the driver instead.
I hope this helps you, if it does not, I apologize and hope that you may solve your problem.

My Samsung N150 keyboard aren't working even if I install other OS, what can I do to solve this problem?


The keyboard maybe faulty ot the keyboard chip in the laptop maybe faulty.
Connect an USB keyboard to your laptop and if this keyboard works then most likely the laptop keyboard is faulty or may the keyboard cable is loose and needs reconnecting to the motherboard.

Advent t9307 power switch not working


Your laptop's power button sits directly on top of a device called a power button board. This is a small circuit board where all power and control buttons interface with your laptop's motherboard. The repetitive use of the power and control buttons can damage the power button board. Repairing your power button means removing and replacing the power button board, which requires partial disassembly of your laptop.

1.Power down your laptop. Unplug the AC power adapter and all external devices from the computer. Close the laptop's LCD panel and place the laptop face down. Rotate the laptop so the front opening edge is facing you. Remove the battery pack from its compartment on the laptop's bottom side.

2.Flip the laptop over, and pull open the display panel as far as possible. Use a thin, flat-head screwdriver to pry the keyboard cover from the laptop. The keyboard cover is the plastic piece situated above the keyboard assembly that houses the power button board.

3.Lift the keyboard cover out of the laptop slightly, and disconnect the cables extending from the power button board to the motherboard. Remove the keyboard cover from the laptop.

4.Place the keyboard cover face down on a flat surface. Remove the Phillips-head screws fastening the power button board to the cover, and remove it. If your speakers are situated inside the keyboard cover, disconnect the speaker cables from the power button board before removing it.

5.Place the new power button board inside the keyboard cover. Align the screw holes on the button board with the holes on the keyboard cover. Replace the Phillips-head screws fastening the button board to the keyboard cover. Reconnect the speaker cables to the button board, if necessary.

6.Reconnect the power button board's main cable to the motherboard. Place the keyboard cover back inside the slot above the keyboard assembly. Press down on the cover until it snaps into place. Replace the battery pack and reconnect all cables.

Plug in a USB keyboard to your laptop and test the spacebar on it. If it works, then the laptop keyboard may be bad.

Try this:
1. You may just need to reseat the keyboard. In other words, disconnect it from the motherboard and then reconnect it to see if it fixes your problem.

2. If step one doesn't work then buy a new keyboard and install it.

When keyboard goes dormant after 15 minutes I can't reconnect without using a new connect code?


Hello.

Unfortunately, when reconnecting, you need to type in a security code. The system does not remember the code and save it. That is the design of the keyboard.

Hope this helps.

The keyboard is not working


Hi,

Connect an external USB keyboard, if there's no problems with it then remove your laptop's keyboard. First: Disconnect the ribbon connection and reconnect again
Second: If that doesn't fix the problem
Third: Buy a replacement
If the external USB Keyboard doesn't work you may have some software issues

Some key of my sony laptop is not working properly ,p is replacing theprevious word.backspace & delete key is not working.


if this just happened, it may have to turn off the laptop, remove the battery and adapter, then press and hold the power button for about 10 secs to discharge residual power, then reconnect the power sources and test the keyboard again. If this did not work, confirm if an external keyboard is working. If no issues with an external keyboard, you may try to remove and reconnect the keyboard cable connection to the motherboard, make sure none of the keys are stuck, and if nothing works, you may have to get a replacement for it.

The keyboard is locked


Dear Sir,

plz folow this step to unlock keyboard

  1. Step 1 Check to be sure your "Number Lock" or "Function Lock" keys aren't lit. These can lock out certain parts of your keyboard. If either of these is lit, press them to unlock the locked portion of your keyboard. These can be found at the top right on a laptop and between the number pad and main keys on a desktop keyboard.
  2. Step 2 Save all open programs using your mouse. Use your mouse to restart your computer. This will only work if your computer isn't frozen. If your mouse doesn't move, press the power button on your Dell until the computer turns off. Press it again to restart. If the issue was lack of memory or a locked program, this will unlock your keyboard. Continue to Step 3 if the keyboard is still locked.
  3. Step 3 Shut down your computer using your mouse or power button. Don't restart. Unplug your Dell.
  4. Step 4 Remove the battery if you're using a laptop by turning the laptop over and sliding the battery release latch. Slide the battery out and replace after one minute.
    For desktops, disconnect the keyboard from the desktop. Reconnect after one or two minutes.
  5. Step 5 Reconnect the power adapter or AC cord. Start your computer.
  6. Step 6 If your keyboard is still locked on a Dell desktop, disconnect the keyboard. Restart your computer and reconnect the keyboard after the system boots. Allow your operating system to recognize and reinstall the keyboard.
Thanks For Your Time,

    ibm thinkpad does not boot My IBM Thinkpad 600 (Type 2645-310) stops and hang during bootup. What happens is: 1. LED test, then green Power on and orange battery/charging 3. RAM OK (Responds when I take out /put in different amount of RAM and displays correctly. I have 128 + 32 removable, + 32 internal not possible to take out) 2. I can hear fan, CD drive and evt diskette drive. If I use diskette drive the LED wil give 1 blink, if I use CD drive it will give 14 blink. 3. No cursor seen, but this is displayed: Upper left show the amount of RAM present: 196032 KB OK Upper right IBMs logo in blue; IBM Lower left shows "ThinkPad(R)" in large letters and red dot over "i". 4. Then a "rrrrrr" sound from the loudspeakers after a while, this is in fact 28 clicks shortly after each other. Then nothing more happens. Diskette and CD drive is OK (But can not be used because bootup is never finished). I hear CD speed up and then down again but nothing more happens. No effect in booting with bootable diskette or CD, "Live Linux" CD or else. Backup battery OK (3V) and if I take it out I will be asked for correct date and time when Power on. I can then use keyboard or TrackPoint to set date and time, and after that hangup at the usual point. Starting without battery, HDD, CD drive and removable memory sticks makes no difference in symptoms. Pressing and holding F1 before and during poweron and startup (in order to enter BIOS and selftest) has no effect. I could not find help on IBMs home page, but maybe I did not look at the right place. Is somebody able to help me?
