Letter between c and b wont work! its the paste code key also and I dont recall using it to paste anything Whmat's your problem?


Of course, it wont work because you used a wrong short cut key. The correct short cut command for copying is press the control C simultaneously then for pasting it, it should control V simultaneously. Try it again using the right short cut command. Good luck!

Ctrl + Alt+Del


Hi

is it a usb keyboard or a ps2(round connector) keyboard? the problem is most likely that due to the computer not having started up properly the keyboard is not properly configured / installed by windows.

to get rid of this problem, you need the old type of keyboard, turn off the computer, and plug in a keyboard to the ps2 connector.

green one is for the mouse, the other is for the keyboard, plug in a keyboard, then turn the computer on, you should be able to press CTRL+ALT +DEL now and ones you sign in to the computer it should install the usb keyboard and it should work from now on, just make sure the keyboard is not disconnected or port changed when the power is off from the computer that cause the configuration loss.

Acer Aspire 5571 AWXMi Keyboard not working in 2003 Server


it might not be a problem with the software.

With the power out I would try taking the keyboard out and reseating the keyboard into its slot.

Turn on the laptop and press F2 to see if you can go into the BIOS. If you can then you know your keyboard is working. If you can't get into the BIOS then you know the keyboard is defective and will have to be replaced.

If you can get into the BIOS also make sure to get out and let the laptop reboot, if you cant do the ctrl alt del to get to the login screen then you know its a Operating system problem cause it works for the BIOS but not for the OS.

Hope this helps cause now you know how to tell if its either software or hardware related.
