Problems with Packard Bell Keyboard

Hi,

I've problems with my Packard Bell 6301N keyboard.
Every third time, it doesnt start as if it wasnt plugged properly or identified by the computer.
Restarting the computer often solves the problem but it is quite tedious.
I dont think it comes from the driver as the one which is currently installed is a standard keyboard one (Microsoft Natural Keyboard P/S2) and as I havent found any (other) specific driver available on the web.
NB: I got the keyboard with a (French) iMedia 6430 machine.

Thank you for your help,
J.

HAVE YOU TRIED ANOTHER KEYBOARD? TRY YOUR ON SCREEN KEYBOARD UNDER "ALL PROGRAMS" "ACESSORIES" THEN "ACCESABILITY" CLICK ON "ON-SCREEN KEYBOARD. IF THE ON-SCREEN KEY BOARD WORKS YOUR KEYBOARD IS BAD.

SOURCE: PACKARD BELL EASYNOTE MV35-202 keyboard and mouse pad won't work

The first thing to do is my computer properties see if your keyboard and mouse are showing in there
If they are you need to update the drivers.
If they are not showing then I would suggest going to control panel and add new hardware installing that way
Try using a standard mouse instead of usb
If you cannot get on try restarting in safemode to correct your problem.
Or if you have a cd that came with the mouse and keyboard reinstall it.
Let me know if this helped also did you reinstall the same version of windows

SOURCE: Keyboard beeps when any key is pressed

The reason these beeps are happening is because there might be a key that is slightly depressed enough to where its registering keystrokes. Move your fingers all over the keyboard and see if you the beeps stop after you do that. If it still is going on then that means your keyboard is bad and will need to be replaced.

Why doesnt the third row of keys on my keyboard do not workk


The keyboard itself is defective. The keys are "strung" together in groupings. The T just happens to be on another string then the top row.. To verify you can easly hook up an external keyboard and verify that it works. Once verified it all works then the problem itself will be in the keyboard. Replace the keyboard. You can easly find them online and are not that expensive or hard to replace.

Need to buy Packard Bell keyboard relacement for S/N BCKB21006311: P/N 6837780001. Can you advise/?


Packard bell should be a standard PS2 keyboard, I would just get one at your local thrift store for a couple bucks. Look at the connector where it plugs into the tower and then just make sure the new one looks the same, should work good. Most modern keyboards are USB, but packard bell is old and may not work with this type. You could go find a new PS2 keyboard at a store but it will be about $20

I am unable to use the hot keys on a Packard Bell keyboard (SK-2300H) installed on a generic PC running Vista. The PC sees the keyboard as a standard PS/2 keyboard. Some of the buttons are active. e.g the...


Your Packard-Bell keyboard was designed to work specificaly with your PB system. The old computer came (probably pre-installed) with software and drivers that map the extra keys to functions like e-mail, calculator, volume control etc. It may be possible to make the keyboard work like it did on your old system by locating and installing the Packard Bell keyboard driver and software. Go to the PB website and select UK-Irish support location. From there go to support section and follow the automated support by filling in info such as model number etc. No guarantee it will work but worth a try.

Non working keys on laptop


You should just need to replace the keyboard.

However finding a keyboard for a packard bell in the US can be hard. That brand hasnt been sold here in years.

If you are in europe it should be less of a problem though.
Made sure to get the exact model of the laptop to get the right keyboard.

Good luck!

Keyboard lock


Hi, because it is a Packard Bell your problem doesn't sound odd. I owned one at one point in time. They have since gone out of business. A keyboard that freezes is related to circuit malfunction. You have two options: open the laptop and clean out all the dust from everywhere especially under the keyboard. If that doesn't work reseat the processor. I will walk you through these solutions if needed. Just open a live chat with me. Good luck
