Hello,

 

Please try below steps:

 

 

1. The most common problem when faced with a non-working keyboard is an improper connection. Try reconnecting your keyboard, restart your computer and see if that fixes it.
2. Turn off the system. Unplug the keyboard connect and inspect for any bent or broken pins. If the pins are bent, then it is possible to gently straighten them using the tip of a ball point pen or mechanical pencil. If the pins are broken, then replacement of the keyboard may be necessary.
3. Try updating the device driver. Visit the manufactures web site for the latest driver available for your keyboard make and model. While at the manufactures web site. See if there are software patches or updates available for your keyboard. If there are, go ahead and install them as well as the updated driver.
4. If you are using a multi-media type keyboard, be sure to delete the software before installing any new drivers for this type of keyboard. Install the updated driver for the manufactures web site, then re-install the keyboard software. If any software updates or patches are available for your multi-media keyboard, install them at this time. Delete the keyboard software by using Add/Remove Programs (Start>> Control Panel>> Add/Remove Programs). If you receive a prompt asking if you would like to remove all shared files, answer "No to all". Then click OK.

 

Further steps on this issue:

---------------------------------------

 

Disconnect the keyboard from the computer and connect another known working keyboard to it. If this is a PS/2 keyboard and connecting multiple keyboards or a known working keyboard to the computer PS/2 port does not work unfortunately it's likely that the PS/2 port is bad. Because this port is part of the motherboard this will require that you replace the motherboard.

Alternatively if replacing the motherboard is too costly or not an effective solution you could also consider using a USB keyboard if USB ports are available on the computer.

I hope this should resolve the issue.

 

You can mail me at [email protected] for any further assistance.

 

 

Bye.

Are you using wireless mouse? if so, try replacing battery. Still not working? replace mouse. If USB mouse, try changing the mouse pad. Still trouble? try different USB port and update BIOS.

First thing you do to power your laptop on again try removing the battery and the charger complitly leave it for 10 sec without power then press the on off switch for 2 or 3 times without puting the power or batery later try not to put the battery and put only the power adapter and start your laptop dose it starts if yes good shut it down and put the batery in and start the laptop if its starting and leave it running for cuppul of hours and then again remove the power adapter and let it run the system with batery power if it stays on and fine you are ok and fine there was just a power dump but if it fails in any case like fails to boot with power adapter and so you have adapter issue need to be checked if dosent work with batery it self its a batery issue and needs replacement .
regarding the keyboard issue you can open the kay board and clean it with contact spray if posible.
