Keyboard doesnt work....

It works for a while when it starts up, then suddenly stops working completely. Tried reinstalling drivers, no work. At random times, it would go back to norm, but symptoms resume when comp is restarted. Help/suggestions?

May be something spilled on keyboard or maybe loose cable under keyboard.
Some keyboards can be easily removed either with catches at front below space bar or sometimes screw on underside releases the keyboard. Others have a sliding plastic bar above keyboard which then removes to release keyboard.

Find keyboard ribbon cable and check it is in socket OK on mainboard. If not, gently prise up each end of the socket which will release the ribbon cable - push ribbon cable down into socket - press down socket edges to trap cable into socket again.

Standard PS 2 Keyboard Glitched Up


Go to safe mode with networking and check if the problem persists. If yes, then I suggest that you reset the connection of your keyboard and your computer.

If the problem is gone inside safe mode, then I suggest that you do a system restore or install RadarSYnc and scan your computer with it.

Our keyboard on our laptop jus stopped working,,how do we get it to work?


Try to power drain the machine first, unplug the charger/ac adapter and battery.Press and hold power button for 10 secs then put the battery back in and plug in charger.Check if keyboard will respond. Try to connect a usb keyboard to be able to access windows or use onscreen keyboard. Then try to go to device manager.For xp, start->right click on my computer->hardware->device manager->keyboard. for vista, start->type in device manager in start search ->keyboard. Try to uninstall and reinstall the driver for keyboard then restart the machine.If this doesnt work then you might need to replace the keyboard.If the system is under warranty then you can have the machine service by the manufacturer.Hope this helps...

Keyboard on hp dv7-1130us stopped working


This sounds alot like a virus i once had!
try a system restore to the point before these problems occured. if that doesnt work run a full virus scan. If that doesnt fix the problem you may have to wipe the hard drive completly.
