Some keys not working after VMware crash

Q: Some keys not working after VMware crash

I was running another OS in VMware and after a while everything froze so I was forced to restart my computer by manually pressing the restart button. After the restart some keys on my keyboard started to not work. At first it was only CTRL but now I cant use p,[,0,- and / either. Every once in a while, out of nowhere some of the keys become active for a short period of time. I tried with another keyboard and have the same results...so it is not a keyboard malfunction.

The on-screen keyboard works, but being a programmer I use CTRL a lot.

Any suggestions what I should try? thanks.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Some keys not working after VMware crash

Have you tried restoring to a previous good configuration? You don't say whether you are using a PC or a laptop, I assume a PC as you have changed keyboards; did you try plugging the keyboard into a different port? Have you been into Control Panel>Device Driver>Keyboard and checked whether you can Troubleshoot the keyboard interface or roll back the driver to a previous configuration or update the driver?

So I decided to dig out some old operating system install disks to play with on my PC. However, when the OS install requires a reboot, the VM breaks and gives endless C++ runtime errors indicating something in regards to "pure functions", no error number visible on screen. To stop the C++ errors from appearing I must go into Task Manager and end the VMware process. When relaunching the VMware program, the VM that was running during the crash is in-accessible and requires the "Take Ownership" command, but when clicking that option I just get another error. To solve this issue I can reboot my host PC, but the VMs just cause the issue all over again. This crash also occurs when connecting host drives to the VM, or removing the virtual CD drive and reconnecting it.

Hey Everyone

Started typing on my internal laptop keyboard today and reliased that mainly keys a b and n were not working.
So I decided to clean them by taking off the key and white holder, then used a cloth to clean all the dust etc.. both under the rubber button and around it. This still didn't work however, so I then decided to uninstall and reinstall the driver as well. However this didn't work either.

Its probably best to try and buy a new one off e-bay, but before I do this does anyone else have any suggestions?

Also interesting, a b and n seems to be a popular combination of keys for other toshiba laptops that don't seem to be working... (Using a USB keyboard atm to type which works fine)

Thanks

Hello,Having a problem with my laptop keyboard where the hotkey function buttons have suddenly stopped working as they used to. Pressing any of the hot keys results in an f1-12 rather than the previous function of changing volume, toggling keyboard lights and changing brightness etc. This happened around the time of me installing some new drivers for an audio interface so may be related to that. Ive tried going into the BIOS and toggling the hotkey option on and off, and installing hp quick launch software but nothing has worked so far. Any help would be greatly appreciated Thanks in advance - C.

I have a Commodore Laptop (Argentina) and all the keys that have a FN function attached to them do not work as their normal function any more - this happened after lending the laptop to my kids....

I think it may be FN lock, but can-t find any way to unlock it.

Any ideas please.

Many thanks.

A:Keys that have FN functions on them not working as normal keys

Check the Manual on the model's Support Downloads webpage for key combo to unlock: http://www.ehow.com/how_4968993_unlo...ey-laptop.html

Try updating or reinstalling the hotkeys driver from the model's Support Downloads webpage. Driver Install - Device Manager

While there look also for any downloadable fixes for these key functions or related.

It may also be disabled in msconfig>Startup. You can google the listings there to see what they're for. Normally you only need your AV checked and the rest are freeloaders, but some models require hotkey software to be running at startup if it provides anciliiary functions like backlighting, function toggling, etc.

Hello!

Now the problem I'm facing is that whenever I try to open the web-page of my web-server, I receive Modem Configuration page instead of web page I loaded on the server, although my Apache 2 server is running fine.

Can some one help me tell how to configure so that it directly fetches the web pages loaded in the web server instead of modem configuration page.

I have been using VMware 11 which I am new too, And also playing with a new windows 10 install.
I have installed a genuine win 7 copy which was activated and then installed win 10 from inside win 7 and this also activated without problem. So left with a working activated copy of windows 10

After a few days I thought I would do a fresh install from a ISO and wipe the disk. This worked fine as expected and is still activated and running fine.

I then thought with all my playing with the disk I would do a FULL clone of this clean install so it would be a good starting point and a backup just in case something happened to the other VM and snapshots. I then tried to run this clone but now windows stays this clone is not activated. No matter what I do.

I then went back to the original VM and this still is activated fine.

I thought a cloned VM computer would not trigger the activation process if it was used on the same Host pc with the same settings.

Anyone have any ideas ??

I'm running VMWare 7 on a Windows 7 64-bit host and trying to get an XP Pro SP3 VM to connect to my network. I have no success with either Bridged or NAT.

-VMWare NAT Service is running on the host
-Assigning a static IP to the VM from my router does not help
-Disabling Windows Firewall on the host and guest does not help
-VMWare Bridging is enabled on my host's Ethernet adapter
-Antivirus monitoring is disabled on the XP guest

This all worked just fine when I used Vista x64 and VMWare 6.5. By the way, I have created a brand new VM with the W7/VMW7 combination and it acts just the same way.

My Windows 98 VM works with NAT.

Been at this for hours on end and no threads I've read have helped. Perhaps there is a registry mod I need to do? I read one user that fixed his problem using CCleaner's registry cleaner, but there's no way I'm running a reg cleaner. I've read enough on this forum to know better

Hi all

To install W8 developer edition (current version) as a VM with vmware workstation you have to download / upgrade to version 8. Version 7.1X and earlier won't work. Vmware player (current version) gives same problem as vmware workstation 7.1x.

When you install choose W7 as the OS (there isn't a W8 option yet not surprisingly) and select I will install the OS later.

Then select the DVD device in the vm serttings as a virtual ISO (you don't need to burn a physical DVD) and boot from the device.

Then it will install more or less as W7.

Ignore any prompt for a product key if it appears. I wasn't asked for one but some people seem to get a request for a product key when attempting to install W8 as a virtual machine.

You can download a free trial version for 30 days from the vmware site. ( it may be that eventually version 7.1x will work or the next upgrade of W8 will work so unless you want to upgrade to version 8 of vmware workstation I'd start with downloading the trial).

Then it installs OK

I don't have enough privileges yet to upload screenshot but it installs fine.

I've also posted a suggestion on how to remove / disable the metro gui for those that want a more "classical" Windows look - you can see the post in the W7 Forum until I can get approval to post in the relevant section on this Forum on customising W8

About a week ago I got a popup from Norton Internet Security that said "We've detected an intrusion attempt from such and such IP address with the DeepThroat Trojan. This attack was blocked."

I didn't like the way that sounded so I did research on that trojan, but from what I read on the internet it didn't sound like I had it.

I ran scans with:
SpyBoy
AdAware
Norton Anti-Virus
Panda ActiveScan

And all came up clean.

Then some people said AVG was a good anti-virus, so I downloaded that, ran it, it came up clean, and then I deleted it because it slowed my computer down like crazy (constant 100% CPU usage, etc.)

Ever since then, I've been getting weird warnings and weird random program crashes.

I downloaded Firefox 3 the other day and it crashes a LOT. Some of the other programs I run have been randomly crashing, too (stock trading and charting programs).

I decided I was going to do a system restore to a month ago, but when I went into System Restore, ALL MY RESTORE POINTS WERE GONE!! I know I didn't delete them, so I'm wondering if some malware I picked up did.

I use Firefox for browsing 99.9% of the time so I usually feel safe surfing the web.

I'm using WinXP SP2.

It has happened before and I think I was able to fix it by hitting fn + num lock or fn + caps lock or something, but I can't remember what the exact combination of keys was. I tried hitting fn + some f key (f1 - f12) and it sometimes switches to some weird mode were the laptop thinks I'm always pressing CTRL.

Hello, I am having trouble with my X1 keyboard, after startup, some keys will not work from a period from one to three minutes, these include "backspace". "enter", "fn", and sometimes even the trackpoint's mouse keys won't work for a while. It can also occur at random moments while using the keyboard. It can be very frustrating while typing. I think it might be a software issue as the laptop sometime freezes when I try to close a process, and I have to close it manually via the task manager. Usually, when that happens, the same keyboard keys stop working. Has anybody else ever had this problem?

Hey @mohanj2787, Welcome to the HP Forums! I read your post and wanted to reach out to help you! In your post, you had said that currently your HP 15-ac149tx Notebook will not install the AMD driver.  Here is a link to your product page. You system came with Intel 5500 HD graphics not AMD. So you need to uninstall the AMD from your Device Manager.  You could try: In the Device Manager, click the arrow next to Display Adapters to expand that category. Right-click on Graphics and select Update Driver Software. Choose the option to Search Automatically for Updated Driver Software. The Notebook should find and automatically install the updated driver. After the installation is complete, restart your Notebook. You could try using the Windows Update Troubleshooting tool to fix any updates that have not come through for Windows.This is a download that will run a check on your system and usually repair it. Please restart the Notebook twice to make sure all update have been completed!  Please get back to me how this goes. If this post helps you to resolve the issue you can click the Thumbs up icon to show gratitude! Please click the Accept as Solution, to the right of the Thumbs up icon, if your issues is resolved.  Thanks.

Hi, I'm here again

I've noticed that my Fn keys are not working on my Hp laptop.. I searched on hp page for any signs of drivers that could solve it and I found this..


Code:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=ob-91100-1&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&os=4063&product=5072254&sw_lang=
I downloaded it and tried to install but the installation wasn't successful so it's still not working. Does anyone have some experience with it or know how to proceed?
Thank you

Until we diagnose the problem, try the following:

Do you know when the problem started? If you do, try to do a System Restore to before it began.
System Restore

Also try an SFC/SCANNOW command. If related system files are corrupt or have been deleted, it should be able to fix or replace them.
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

A Repair Install will do much the same thing. This is normally for users who can't find a solution to their problem but don't want to do a clean install.
Repair Install

I also read that the Fn keys not working can be a malware problem. If it is, download and install both:
Malwarebytes
Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware, anti-virus and spyware removal download
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com
and
avast!
avast! - Download Free Antivirus software or Internet Security
Avast Free Antivirus - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com
and do a full system scan on both.

Hello I think it is Windows 8, i may be wrong. My F keys that have volume, display shortcuts on it are not working. They work as the function shortcuts when I use the fn button, but not on its own. Thank you. Jayson

A:F Keys not working

I think that this is "by design". For example, when using some programs, e.g., 'NOTEPAD', pressing 'F3' repeats the "Find" function, i.e., looking for the next occurrence of a string that you specify, while 'FN-plus-F3' invokes the "alternate" functionality, e.g., play/pause, or volume up/down. Does your keyboard have a 'FN-LOCK' key (compare to "shift-lock" for typing ALL IN UPPER CASE), to "lock" those 12 keys to their "alternate" association?

Hi rafa_mota04 , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
Would you have the machine number? Check on the machine number from the sticker or check it from here ,just keep your serial number confidential. 
Would onscreen keyboard and external USB keyboard work?
 
You can try setting the defaults in the BIOS (exit tab) then save and exit and recheck.
If still the same check the numbers 5 and 6 in the BIOS if working ( security password would allow you to type but do not save since it is just a test) . 
 
Update us how it goes.
 
Regards
