Huh.  It'll give you that error if a key is held down mostly, but it could be something drawing too much current from that connector (or rarely, too much dust in the works; it'd be obvious.)  Do you have a G15 or some gaming keyboard?

Keyboard does not work receives code 39 error message

To repair this error:
1)Run regedit Click on Edit -> Find kbdclass
2) Search through for as many "Upperfilters" you can find.
Mine was under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E96B-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
3) They most likely have 2 lots of drivers associated with it eg 'tphclhs kbdclass' , usually comes if you have installed VMWARE previously
4) Double click the 'Upperfilter' and delete the other entry except 'kbdclass'
5) Search for all instances of this and change them
6) Go to device manager and uninstall your keyboard - then 'scan for hardware changes'
7) You will most likely need to restart Keyboard should now be working fine.

My keyboard will not work? I try to type and nothing happens everything else is working fine


I would recommend making sure the keyboard is connected to the proper connection on the pc. If it is, check to make sure you have no POST error when the pc reboots. (Most times your pc will halt if no keyboard is detected.) If you get no error after the reboot and your connections are correct, you will need to get a new keyboard.

PS - Make sure you 9 pins in the connector of the keyboard connection. (Look at the end that plugs into the pc you can see the pins form a semi-circle.

Good Luck

Keyboard Error

Sounds like intermittent keyboard failure. If it is the old style keyboard connector (small round jack), shut down, remove it completely, and then plug it back in. If it is a USB keyboard, you are probably having USB keyboard support problems. Try moving the keyboard to a different USB port - usually the ones closest to the parallel port or network jack that are sure to be on the motherboard itself.

Hope this helps...
