usb or ps2 keyboard ? might need to be enabled in BIOS
If you want to use a USB keyboard to access Windows command prompt options, make changes in the BIOS (Basic Input/Output System), or to operate legacy operating systems, you must enable support for the device inside the BIOS.
Shut down the computer and disconnect the USB keyboard. Connect a PS/2 keyboard to the PS/2 connector port on the rear of the computer. Turn on the computer and press the "Delete" key several times as soon as you see the initial boot or company logo screen. Wait for the main BIOS setup screen to appear. Press the right or left arrow keys to move the cursor to the "Advanced" or "Advanced Settings" menu option. Press the "Enter" key. Move the cursor to the "Integrated Peripherals" or "Peripheral Configuration" menu option. Press the "Enter" key. Press the down-arrow key to navigate to the "USB Controllers" option. Press the "+" or "-" key to change the menu option to "Enabled." Move the cursor to the "USB Legacy Support" or "USB Legacy Function" field. Press the "+" key repeatedly until the value option changes to "Enabled." Press the "F10" key to save changes to the BIOS settings and exit the setup utility. Wait until the computer begins to restart and then press the power button and hold it for approximately four or five seconds. The computer shuts down completely. Unplug the PS/2 keyboard from the computer and set it aside. Reconnect the USB keyboard restart the computer. As soon as you see the initial boot screen, tap the "Delete" key several times and wait for the BIOS setup screen to appear. If you are able to access the BIOS setup screen with the USB keyboard, USB support is active in the BIOS.
It's possible the keyboard was damaged with the loss of power. Do you have another usb slot to try? You can try updating your drivers sure but there is no guarantee that will help either. If you want to do that try using an automatic driver updater. It will quickly identify your hardware and locate the proper drive for each device.click and get a free scan. I recommend scanning your system at least once a month to make sure your driver stay up to date
if you were flasing the bios and it was interrupted you might be **** out of luck if the bios was compltedly erased. the only thing you can do is try flashing the bios again , make sure it is compatible
Restart the computer with keyboard connected and try booting into setup to see if the keyboard is recognized by bios, if you can get into the bios, then this is an operating system related issue.
If the keyboard still does not respond even in bios, you may have a damaged PS/2 connector. If this is the case, it can be soldered by a technician or the keyboard can be substituted with a USB keyboard.
Turn you computer off. Check to see if the keyboard is plugged in all the way. Now turn the system on. Do the lights on the keyboard flash when the system turns on? Can you push the caps lock key and get the caps lock light to turn on? Can you push the numlock key and get the numlock light to turn on?
No? Well I would then try another keyboard. It's quite possible yours is broken.
Disconnect external peripherial.Drain flea power,connect know good keyboard,tried to boot in bios.DO factory reset in bios,Try to restart computer check, if issue still persist,remove memory and check. Disconnect hdd and connect on secondard ide or sata connector, tried to reboot and check.remove video card , sound card , modem card or network card if present.connect monitor to onboard video and check.
if it is not responding at all you may want to check the ribbon cable, there are screws underneath the laptop in the area of the keyboard, carefully lift the keyboard up and check the flat cable that runs from the keyboard to the system board.
its worth checking that you can still access the keyboard from the bios, when the system turns on press the key to go to setup (usually del or f2 or f10) if that works then boot to widows and check you keyboard settings in windows, if nothing is apparently wrong, right click my computer and go properties, go to the hardware tab, click device manager and uninstall the keyboard, reboot and windows will reinstall the drivers for it
