Unresponsive key board

Everything works fine apart from the keyboard. None of the keystrokes work unless you tap the keyboard wildly. Then all of a sudden the keys will work briefly before displaying the same character constantly. The only way to stop it is to tap wildly again. Any help would be appreciated.

Most notebooks have touch sensitive pads or switches underneath the keyboard, unlike a normal keyboard which is less complicated. You can try and remove keyboard and check underneath, but it may be that the circuitry that works certain banks of keys is damaged or shorting. Not a job for faint hearted i would recommend a qualified repairer.

The @ key stroke

If the @ keystroke is not working, it maybe because the Regional and Language settings are off. Go the control panel > Regional and Language Settings > go through all the tabs including the keyboard and location settings and change everything to "United States - English"

None of the keys respond

Hi
It seems that the connection of the keyboard is disturbed.
Check the TOP Lights which are on the key board. If the num lock is working then it shows key board is fine with the connection or check the connector

Blackberry Keyboard Unresponsive

Ok, it seems that either you dropped by accident or somebody else did and did not tell you. That is one of the most common causes to phone failure. You may try to take it apart yourself and secure the data cables or contact a technician who might do it for you. Again, if you are going to try it, look for manuals online on how to take it apart, try youtube.com, they have walk-through videos. Good luck.

Arrow key problem

if its a sensor problem under the keyboard, gently blowing under the key or hoovering the keyboard may bring results, but it may just be the driver, so go to my comuter icon, right click, properties, the hardware tab, device manager and go down the list to keyboard, click the '+' sign to reveal your keyboard make, right click on it and select uninstal. Restart the notebook and the keyboard will be recognised again and the driver automatically installed. If none of that works your problem may be more serious in the way of a faulty circuit under the board
