Hey, dear Sevenforums..

I've been using a keyboard, that i bought in Albania, really cheap price, low profile keyboard named ACME.


My PC Have been screwed up by it somehow.. i think, as now i cant press serval buttons on my Keyboard.

I can't Press ENTER Anymore on my laptop keyboard, neither ''L'' and serval more buttons, which make it pointless to use my laptop now..

I'm currently going back to norway, and i am leaving the low profile KB here, and i'd love to make the keyboard work 100% Again?

I'm not sure why, but it does not let me press enter, or L, it ignores it, like it dosent even effect anything..

I've got a

HP Pavilion dv6 Laptop, windows 7, x64.


-- The problem came up after i took out the keyboard, and my pc was shutten off.. now i cant use the laptop keyboard 100%, only 70% as most of the buttons dont even work..

so i wrote this by using the lame acme keyboard.. with wire.

Please help, advices and help would be perfect.

Hi there, a buddy of mine got a ibm r52 laptop recently from a relative that sat for a few months. anyways, it was given to him and it worked great for about a week then he noticed issues with the keyboard, trackpoint, scroll pad and buttons not working sometimes after boot.
And when they dont work...they dont work. Its not a on and off thing...its either or.

So he has me looking at it...

I dont think its a big issue b/c the keyboard will ALWAYS work when i want to go into the BIOS. I loaded up a Acronis TI boot disk and the keyboard and trackpoint worked fine...but then i tried it again and only the keyboard worked and no trackpoint or pad.

So far i have tried updating the BIOS and embedded controller to the latest with no luck.
Ive also tried a quick fresh install....no luck...still either on or off.

However, if i plug my usb wireless mouse in the mouse cursor works fine...always...

So i guess my next step is to open her up, but im waiting to hear back on any suggestions first....and i got to find a service manual for it...
Thanks for reading.

Alright so here it goes, I spilled ranch on my keyboard(a friend did).
This is a laptop keyboard, the keys L N and K didnt work before. So i assume it was a bad keyboard, i order a online keyboard and now this one the keys ZX 1 dont work. So is this a keyboard hardware issue? Did i just get another bad one ? Should i get another keyboard and retry or can something else cause keys to not work

A:Keyboard buttons dont work

Ouch

Well, not sure I can help other than to say that like you I would have assumed that the damage was confined entirely to the KB and replacing it should have gone smoothly (Not like you spilled a coke or something that would have leaked al over internally).

Probably the think to do is return the new one as defective and ask for another... If that also doesn't work then it would almost have to be the computer itself...

Did the contamination get anywhere near the KB cable connector?

Hello, I have an X1 Yoga and just noticed that the volume rocker (the physical buttons on the right side of the computer) don't seem to work when my lid is closed.  When the lid is open, the rocker works great.  But not otherwise. I have tried playing music from both Spotify and Youtube.  Both sources of audio don't work.  (Not sure if that's relevant, but just thought I'd mention it.) If there are any other X1 owners out there (Yoga or Carbon; I believe they're very similar), could you please test this out?  I normally adjust volume with the Fn keys (with the lid open, obviously) so I didn't notice this issue until today.  I was just trying to listen to music with the lid closed for the first time today when I noticed the problem. Thanks!

So everything is fine and I'm setting up windows. I go to local security policy to disable the administrator account and then go to rename it, and find out my keys aren't working!!

Title kind of says it all. I just purchased a brand new K3500 Wireless Keyboard which has keys which are supposed to Pause, Play, Skip FWD, Skip Back, etc. when listening to music. The keyboard came with no drivers or software of any kind; I, in fact,  was unable to find anything at for this keyboard on HP support. As there is no software available I would expect it to "just work" out of the box. I have actually had this same issue with another Wired HP keyboard ... SK-2023. It was the reason I was attempting to replace it. I assumed that teh keyboard was broken or somethign was amiss ... now it appears that all the keyboards are this way. Has anyone else had and resolved this issue? If I cannot resolve it I will have to return the keyboard and get something else. I am on a Win7 OS ... does that matter? Thanks,G

There are three accounts on the computer, the casing has been half removed for the last 3 months, a DVD burner and driver recently installed 3 months ago and I am using a wireless off brand USB keyboard and mouse.

As for the second part, the computer requires several restarts to boot up, sometimes up to twenty minutes of turning on and off to boot up. Only started doing this a week ago.

A:My Keyboard doesn't work, and the computer turns on but doesn't start.

It sounds like something is wrong with your Windows XP drivers. Something like that happened to me while building my computer, and when I boot up the keyboard did not work because my copy of windows XP was bad. You could try reinstalling windows XP, and It might work better, but I dont have a definite answer to your problem.

Using Windows 8, I have discovered that the shift key doesn't work. I have to use cap's lock. Every time I click the cap's lock, an ' appears. I have to delete that before typing my capital word. Without shift, I can't make many important punctuation marks like the exclamation point and the
question mark. Using an on screen keyboard works, but it's so hard to move your mouse to click each letter. Also, the control key doesn't work. Earlier, whenever I typed the space, a space and a zero appeared. And now space works, but zero doesn't. Whenever I type zero, it become an 0. Not to mention that when I type one, 31 comes up, and when I type three, 31 comes up, too. Also, when I search something online, or save a PowerPoint, or anything else, it will bring something else up. For example, I want to search Mario online, before I can type ma, https://mail.go... comes up and I have to delete everything but the m and the a and start typing again. This started today, though I didn't download anything in the past week besides using http://www.youtube..., which is used by many others.

As the description states, I think that the keyboard driver was corrupted by one or more viruses back when I got infected with AV Security 2012 and ZeroAccess, among others.
However, my computer has since been declared clean after a great save by SweetTech.

I may be wrong about the virus being the cause of the problem, but I do know it's a software problem, as the keyboard will work while the computer is booting up, (long enough that I can still put it in safe mode) but as soon as Windows boots the physical keyboard becomes totally unresponsive, even in safe mode.

The On-screen keyboard still works.
I don't know whether a USB keyboard would work or not, as I don't have one.

I hve already tried different keyboards, uninstalling and reinstallng the keyboard driver normally, in safemode, and also reinstalling after rebooting the computer, but it didn't work.

The device status for the keyboard is:
This device cannot start (code 10)

Hi there,
I have an acer aspire V11 touch laptop and about 2 weeks ago the keyboard stopped working properly. Whenever I try typing anything there is no output apart from when I try stroking multiple keys really quickly. However this results in a keyboard spasm and will continuously type out the same letter over and over again. The only way I can stop that is by holding down the esc key or the spacebar, and as soon as I let that go it continues!

I have tried pretty much everything in the control panel and settings, including trying to uninstall and reinstall it, as well as checking it wasn't anything to do with filter or sticky keys

Any help would be much appreciated, as using the touch screen keyboard takes so long to type everything!

Hello everyone!

Yesterday I was working on my desktop, and Windows Update decided to pop up and install some automatic updates. I put it off by a few hours, so I could finish up my work and go to sleep. When I next tried to use the computer, I realized that somehow Windows Vista could not start. Once it got past the initial screen where I could access BIOS and everything, the computer would just automatically restart.

So I pulled out my installation disk, popped it into the drive, and did a repair on my computer. It supposedly worked, and I tried to access Vista again.

Now here's the problem that I'm currently having:
The keyboard works fine while the computer is booting up. In other words, I can access BIOS and all that. However, once the computer reaches the Vista logon screen, the keyboard and mouse don't receive any power from the computer at all. I can't turn on NumLock or anything like that. Therefore, I can't access my computer at all to try and repair it.

I tried a System Restore to right before it updated (or at least that's what I think the date stamp pointed to), but the problem persists.

I use a USB Keyboard and Mouse, and my computer does not have PS/2 keyboard or mouse ports. I'm running Windows Vista 64 bit, and my computer (and hardware inside) is maybe a year old at most, so I doubt any hardware has failed.

So basically I'm asking: Is there any way to fix my computer? Or will I have to get a Linux Live CD, back up... Read more

Hey all,

I just bought a Logitech G15 Gaming Keyboard today. I plugged it into a USB port and installed the drivers, and the keyboard doesn't work. The LED lights don't light up, nor do any of the keys work. I tried plugging it into a different USB port and reinstalling the drivers, and it still doesn't work. I've also tried connecting the keyboard to another computer and it still doesn't work. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

A:G15 gaming keyboard doesn't work

Have you previously had a USB (as opposed to PS2) keyboard connected to the system ?
If not, then you may have to enable the function in the motherboards BIOS.
If you have then it sounds like a fault with the keyboard. The G15 does not require the drivers and utilities (Key profiler and LCD manager) for basic functionality. If you have USB keyboard support enabled then the keyboard backlighting and LCD screen ( "Logitech" for rev.1 blue backlit, "G15" for rev.2 orange backlit) will initialize as soon as the OS loads.

I bought a HP Compaq D530 SFF PC fro Ebay..There was no operating system on it..
so i want to install windows on my new pc. When I boot the XP disc, I get a blue screen, with some things loading at the bottom.

When it comes time to "Press enter to insall windows, Press R to repair or Press F3 to skip installation" my keyboard doesn't work, and I can't press enter.

What's going on here, what can I do? it seems like my keyboard doesnt work anymore (by the way, the keyboard and monitor was not part of the pc that i bought and it is not a USB keyboard)

thanks for your time and help

About 2 months ago, my keyboard quit working in WORD. I have no problems typing this post, for example, or cutting and pasting text I am forced to enter into WordPad in order to get it into WORD. I deleted the keyboard file in settings/system/hardware/device manager/keyboards and rebooted. No help at all. My wife's friend installed a Chinese character set that is always there, but I used tb be able to just change to a western font and work on. That doen't even work anymore. In WORD, nothing goes onto the screen when I type. Do I need to run combofix to get rid of a virus? Pleae help.

Do I need to run combofix to get rid of a virus?Absolutely not. There is no indication of an infection at this point, and even if there were one doesn't perform major surgery and chemo if something much less drastic will work.Have you tried repairing the Word installation? This article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/821593 discusses how you can do that.
