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.

if it wont type any letter at all after a re start
you can plug in an external usb keyboard on that laptop

if the mouse works go into
device manager and look for the keyboard
click on it see if the driver and device is working

if not
would say it needs a new keyboard panel

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

First thing you need to do is to know that the USB ports of your laptop is really working. Insert another usb devices or storage such a flash disk. If the flash disk being inserted is not recognized by the system then the usb port you had inserted is malfunctioning or it is defective. But if the other usb devices like the flash disk is working then your new bought mouse is defective. Try to plug the usb mouse to the other ports available in your laptop.
