    My laptop (Compaq EVO N800v) recently got reformatted due to getting attacked by 5 viruses. I'm trying to figure out why the keyboard suddenly stops working. Luckily it will start working again after I restart my computer, but it is such a pain to have to restart over and over again. Please help!

My first solution for you would be, press the key Fn at the bottom left side of the keyboard and and the key on the top right hand side called ""num lik"" or ""scroll"". First hold the FN key down and then press only do not hold the num lik key.

Please tell me if you need a better explanation because I think I did not explained myself very clear.

Hi!  Thank you for getting back to me!  The orange light next to the mouse pad is on, but nothing else.  We can't get any further than the login page, we click on the name, but we can't type in the password to log in at all.  I can re-start the computer because the mousepad works, but I can't even press the F10 button when it restarts.  I wonder if the keypad can get locked...

Hi.I recently bought a Packard Bell mini-laptop (model DOA150),But after installing all Windows XP updates and turning on password protection at the startup, the KEYBOARD and sometimes also the MOUSEPAD...

If cases when this happens you can use the on screen keyboard.

Bottom left corner you will have a blue icon called ease of access.

You can open the on screen keyboard from there.

If the keyboard is working intermitantly inside Windows this could be a driver issue and they may need updating.

Failing that it could be a loose connection.

Checked Packard Bell website for an updated driver if it still the same contact your retailr for a repair.

Keyboard on laptop won't work at all none of the keys work so can't log on

Hi friend, As you have mentioned that the keys on the keyboard are not responding, so, i would like you to do one thing. Please connect any external USB keyboard to your laptop and check if it is working fine.
If it works, it means that the keyboard of the laptop needs to be changed, else, if the external does not work then there is a need to replace the motherboard and the keyboard of the system

there is no reason the keyboard should have stopped working unless something in the form of a liquid solvent was introduced into the keyboard area. Call the store where you purchased it or take it back along with your receipt for a warranty exchange.

Mouse and Keyboard no longer work

Your laptop probably disables your touchpad when any USB mouse is detected. This is pretty reasonable, since your palms can easily stray over the touchpad during touch-typing. I'm not sure how to go about disabling that, but I'm 95% sure there's a way (even if it involves some command-line stuff).

Laptop Compaq Presario 2700 Keyboard & Mousepad lost at all

I read somwhere that most motherboards have a third layer of conductors laminated in the middle of board.It could be possible that you are shorting out something there. Take the screws out and try it without the heatsink for a minute or so. Most big DUI stores sell plastic screws in their hardware areas. These will work no problem.
