Hi

Try an install a USB external keyboard or PS2 whichever. If the external keyboard works then reinstall the drivers for the keyboard they should be universal. If that does not work then it looks like your keyboard has failed.

My HP Pavilion Special Edition Notebook turns on fine and touchpad moves cursor, but nothing will respond when tapped on, including keyboard buttons. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank...


HI,
Try going into the control panel (accessed from the start menu) and checking the status of the touch pad and buttons - these can be modified from this panel. You may need to plug in a mouse to be able to navigate in order to do this. A plug and play mouse should work when plugged in although you may need to restart the computer. Hope this helps.

Laptop Touch Pad will not work


if you plug usb keyboard onto your laptop it will probably turn the touch pad off.
If no other keyboard is attached there is usually a switch to turn off the touch pad.
also if you attach a mouse this may disable the touchpad so you dont move the mouse pointer when you are typing

My keyboard and mouse on the laptop does not work. i am currently using a wireless mouse and keyboard


Sounds like your laptop keyboard and possibly the touchpad need to be replaced. You can order them through any authorized HP service center, or you can contact HP for out-of-warranty support if your laptop's warranty has expired.
