Windows 7 will not load - keyboard unresponsive

Q: Windows 7 will not load - keyboard unresponsive

I am operating on Windows 7. When I turn it on, it will bring up the Toshiba logo then proceed to Advanced Options screen to: Repair your computer etc. It says to use the arrow keys to select, but the entire keyboard is unresponsive. Arrow keys, Enter keys, Esc. key, nothing works. In addition there is no count down clock that will automatically route you to the default selection. System is approx 3 to 4 years old.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

A:Unresponsive keyboard and Mouse in Windows 7

Can no one help me with this issue?

I'm not able to use the keyboard at all until Windows 98 starts loading. Once the Windows screen comes up, the lights go on and I can use it just fine. But before that, nothing. This is a problem I've been dealing with on-and-off for a while (the keyboard used to work properly at least half the time, but now isn't working at all prior to Windows starting). I'm pretty concerned about it. Especially considering that I need to be able to start the computer in safe mode since Norton Antivirus is causing a freeze at startup.

I don't know if there's anything at all that can be done, but here's hoping!
 

A:Keyboard unresponsive until Windows starts

Hi and welcome. A couple of questions...
Have you tried another keyboard?
Have you tried a usb connecting keyboard?

It may have something to do with the ps/2 connection. I'd try some other keyboards to check this.

Hope this helps-

Hi,

I was watching a youtube video and there was a loud scream in the video which at point a loud distorted version of that scream continually played with the video continuing to play with no audio whilst the distorted sound continued. The mouse was movable (but may of froze shortly after, cant remember) but I shut down by holding the power button for 10 seconds (because of the noise). Now when I turn on it loads as normal till the user account screen but after I login the desktop will either not load and be blank with curser visable and moveable, or the desktop will load and be functional but incredulity slow. It takes 10 to 15 to load desktop and icons and clicking on an icon such as chrome or itunes takes 10 to 30 mins load. On one occasion after being logged on for 25 mins the login sound played showing how out of sync it was. Windows boots and operates normally in safe mode and the only fix I've attempted is disabling start up programs, but to no avail. I've scanned for viruses and avg picked up nothing, i also ran spyware and removed selected problems, but the problem persists.

I'm pretty basic in my knowledge when it comes to these things, so any help is extremely appreciated.

I apologize if this has been posted in the wrong forum, i'm new to TSF

Thanks in advance.

I got a new machine recently and it all works fine, except the operating system seems to randomly freeze. When it does the only way I have found to get out of it is to manually plug it out and restart.

On freeze the keyboard and mouse become entirely unresponsive, the cursor does not move, nor do either click buttons do anything, if I'm typing somewhere the text does not appear, and Ctrl+Alt+Del doesn't bring up the usual screen.

I'm running windows 7 home premium on a 64 bit machine. I haven't found anything quite like this problem around so I thought it deserved a new topic by itself.

I can't think of what to do to determine the cause or any potential solution. Everything's up to date. I think all the drivers are too. I put in different virus software 'cause I thought that might be it.

Any ideas anyone?

Edit: The last time it happened I tried putting the keyboard and mouse into different USB ports, but that didn't work.

Edit2: I just went to my device manager and manually checked for updates for all the drivers, and it turned out my graphics card needed an update (I updated it myself about three weeks ago so I discarded this as a potential problem). So I installed the update. If the problem persists I'll reply to this message.

Hello all. I've had this weird problem ever since I got my computer where my computer will lock up randomly and the only way to unfreeze it is to press the the Windows button on my keyboard. That brings up the start menu and then I'm able to move my mouse again and use my computer. At that point I just press the windows key again to close the start menu and resume what I was doing. Sometimes I can tell the computer is about to lock up because my mouse cursor will start blinking rapidly.

I've had this happen since I built my computer two or three years ago. It hasn't been much more than a nuisance until recently when I started playing a certain video game. Mind you, this lock up happens when I watch youtube videos or play games or anything. For some reason, this game I started playing recently called Heroes of the Storm causes the freeze thing once every few minutes. It makes the game basically unplayable since I have to press ctrl alt delete and then the windows key to regain control of my computer.

I've tried reinstalling Windows 10 and updating my graphics drivers and all other drivers on my computer. It even happens after a fresh Windows 10 install with no other programs or anything else installed.

Hi folks
 
I've had success on this forum before and I'm hoping someone with more knowledge of IT than me can suggest a workaround/solution to an issue I currently have with a Windows 7 (Home Premium) laptop:
 
This is an old laptop that I only use from time to time, but it still has a number of files and photos on it that I don't have saved elsewhere.  Last time I used the laptop, it was acting as if the Ctrl key was being pressed every 2-3 seconds which made the keyboard difficult to use (because it triggered shortcuts as I tried to type: Ctrl + O, Ctrl + S etc.).  Because I don't use the laptop as my main machine, I decided that I'd uninstall the keyboard driver from within the Control Panel and just use the on-screen keyboard going forward.
 
Following this, I powered the machine on a couple of days ago and panicked when I discovered that I couldn't get the Ease of Access dialog box to display on the login screen to allow me to enable the on-screen keyboard.  It doesn't produce any kind of error – it simply does nothing when the button, located in the left-hand corner, is clicked.
 
At this point I was still hopeful that I could get around the issue by connecting a standard USB keyboard, but this is also completely unresponsive (although it does appear to be getting power from the laptop because the Caps Lock indicator light is lit).  I've tried a few alternatives: connecting the keyboard before powering up, during the start u...

If you are just interested in recovering your data to save elsewhere you could purchase an external enclosure for about $8.00 at Newegg, remove the HDD from the laptop and install it in the external enclosure.  You can then attach it to another computer via a USB cable (which comes with the enclosure) and access your data to recover what you want.

Hi.

I recently purchased a Microsoft Wireless 3000 keyboard new. After plugging in the USB receiver and installing the batteries to the keyboard, it seemed everything was going to work. The noise came on that a USB device had been plugged in and it then installed the proper drivers. When I tried to type or use any function on the keyboard, though, it was unresponsive-the keys don?t work.


I then tried the following troubleshooting:


1) unplugged my older keyboard (Logitech Office Pro Keyboard PS/2). Then I tried rebooting with it still I unplugged.

2) Inserted the installation disc that came with the new keyboard. I window popped up saying that the program (intelliType) cannot be opened because it is being blocked for compatibility issues. (that is all it said-no cause stated). Restarted computer and tried it again-same outcome.

3) Downloaded the latest driver from the Microsoft website . I made sure it was the exact format for my computer (Windows 7, 64-bit, Keyboard Version 2.0). Installed it fine. I am able to open the intellitype program and configure the various key functions. No response from keyboard though. Restarted computer-nothing changed.

4) Uninstalled (what I could) the Logitech software SetPoint. From my perusal on the internet, it seems it is a very difficult program to uninstall. I deleted the folders from my c: Drive. It was not listed in ?Programs and Features'

A:unresponsive keyboard

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

It could be a faulty keyboard, but I think I'd be inclined to suspect your Logitech keyboard is at the bottom of your problems.

I once tried to use a Microsoft Intellimouse (wired) along with a Logitech wireless keyboard and had to go back to my old Microsoft keyboard in the end.

You could try re-installing the driver for your Logitech keyboard, and then use Revo Uninstaller to remove it by doing a scan of your registry to make sure all installation remnants are removed then re-install your Microsoft keyboard.

If that doesn't do it then you should consider returning the keyboard as it could well be faulty (did you remember to press the wireless connection button on the bottom of the keyboard?).

I've noticed recently that when I'm typing, I've been getting alot of spelling errors in my words, in the form of letters missing from the words.

At first I thought I just wasn't pressing the keyboard hard enough, but even when I'm consciously typing quite aggressively to stop this, I still get missing letters in my writing.

Even as I type these words, I'm having to go back on myself every few sentences to add a space or missing letter.

The keyboard isn't unresponsive permanently, it just sometimes doesn't recognise any input for a split second.

A:Unresponsive Keyboard.

First thought is to clean the keyboard from debris. Turn it upside down and shake and watch the debris fall out...then take a can of compressed air and blow the keyboard keys throughly. Worst case scenario would be to disassemble the keyboard and see if there are any stuck keys or damaged keys or key mechanisms...then while your in there blow it out making absolutely sure there is nothing left to cause the keys to stick.

The board lights up on boot, infact, intrestingly, it wrks for BIOS settings . However, once Win loads, kboard lights die, it becomes utterly unresponsive. (Mouse wrks fine)

Not in any particular order...

3. uninstall/reinstall kboard and drivers
4. unistall/reinstall all usb root hubs (Kboard is usb mouse combo via adapter)
5. Virus, Spybot sys scan
6. google search
7. kboard tech sites

...all to no avail...

At this point, os re-install looms large, though I'm loath to follow that route (seems awfully ham-fisted) since symptom seems to suggests a software/driver issue, no?

Would appreciate anyone's take on this peculiarity.

Hallo Everybody,

I am new to this website and have 2 very strange problems-

My first problem is that my keyboard sometimes becomes totally unresposive.
When that happens I cannot type anything, not in Word or in a searchengine-window etc.
Sometimes when I start my computer up again suddenly I can type again but sometimes nothing helps.
As you can imagine , this is not good especially if you have to do a lot of typing.
It all started when I had a few viruses, I downloaded a second virus-scanner and deleted the viruses.
Could they still be active or is it something else.
It feels as if the keys become jammed somehow.

My second problem has to do with me running out of discspace on one of my harddrives.
I have a Acer Aspire Laptop with 2 Harddrives.
They are both cleaned often with ccleaner, I delete my old e-mail , temp files etc. but my first harddrive is suddenly almost ful. I only have windows on it and a few other files and 2 weeks ago I had 2 gigs of free discspace.
Suddenly there is almost no discspace.
Could this also be a virus ?
I hope someone out there has an answer for me

A:Unresponsive Keyboard

Hello! Welcome to Bleeping Computer

Well, if it was after a virus you cleaned out it may have affected your keyboard driver. Check your manufacturers site (Use the on screen keyboard if you need it)

Try Defragging the hard drive, some space may be marked as allocated when it is not.

I have a Dell XPS 400 desktop running Windows XP. Recently, my wireless keyboard became almost unresponsive. It will type, but the delay per keystroke is about a second. I changed batteries, checked the range with my wireless receiver, and nothing improved. So I assumed it was a bad keyboard and bought a wired USB keyboard. It's still doing the same thing. I checked the keyboard settings through control panel, and everything is set to its fastest setting. I reinstalled the driver, and the device status says it is working properly. What's even stranger, before Windows boots up the keyboard appears to work fine. I went into one of my setup menus before Windows booted and the keyboard was immediately responsive. I'm thinking it's a Windows thing, but I'm at a loss as to what it might be. Any suggestions?

If it were 10-12 years ago, I'd say it sounds like an IRQ conflict, but today's hardware and OSs should not have these problems any more.

Why are you unable to access the BIOS; is your computer not allowing you to?

Your BIOS is where you'll change the settings from "USB detect in Windows" to "USB detect in BIOS"..

Any ideas?
 

A:selectively unresponsive keyboard

So it works OK on battery pw when not on an airplane? If so, there really are only two possibilities;
1 The keyboard has problems with the cabin pressure and or very low humidity that exists in an aircraft cabin in flight
2 Your laptop has a problem with electrical interference either from onboard aircraft systems or other portable devices being used inflight.

Hi I was recently infected with the vundo virus and it really messed up my pc. I could clear my computer of the infection and return some stuff back to normal but Ive been having a weird problem and that is that when ever I boot my computer I can access the bios settings and move up and down and ect, but if I press f8 to boot the computer in safe mode it enters the menu but after that the keyboard becomes unresponsive. The numlock key turns on and off when I ramdomly press the keys. I tried putting the windows xp cd and when the computer detects the cd on the boot up when it says "press the enter key to boot up from cd" the keyboard becomes unresponsive again. The thing is that when windows xp loads up everything is working alright. Thanks in advance ^_^

Recently I have installed and uninstalled a program that was for transfering info from my PC to my Cell phone. Once it was uninstalled,and the PC restarted the next morning, the touchpad and keyboard of my acer Aspire 5100 have become unresponsive. I am using a USB mouse and keyboard and everything works great other than the sound. I checked my Device Manager and found exclamation marks by the following:

AMD Turion 64 [email protected] mobile tech TL-50(Processes)
Generic PnP Monitor(Monitors)
ATI I/O Comm Processor LPC controller, HD audio controller, UMBus Root Bus Enumerator(System devices)

I checked all exclamation marks for updates, no change.
There is a pop-up that states "No audio output device installed". I have preformed a system restore to a Week before the issue existed and it persists. At this point its just getting arrogant at the fact that I must carry around a usb optical mouse and a bulky usb Key Board.

Can Anyone Help? I'm Near Wits End!!

Hi, i have a problem with a windows Vista Acer PC. Everytime my cousent tries to play any type pf Nexon game the keyboard becomes unresponsive. Now i've checked the drivers multiple tiems and it seems that the drivers become corrupt to some extent. Instead of saying Location: portx.hubx etc. its says 002.0002.0002. etc. Ive deleted the drivers for it and reinstlalled them over and over but the problem persists. I was wondering if any one else had this problem or if ther is a way to make a .bat file to delete keyboard driver, then just plug keyboard in and let it reinstall itself easily so my cousent can understand it. Or eveen better a way to precvent this from happening. I havent tried it but i will try to update the drivers after reinstalling them. I know its not the keyboard itself because we tried multiples such as stock Acer keyboard, and Gigware Keyboard. Both were USB connected.

This is just started less than an hour ago. When I boot the computer, I cannot access the BIOS, or choose which OS I load. I was using Vista earlier, then shut down the computer and went to dinner. When I came back and booted the computer, I was unable to choose vista or windows 7 from the boot menu, so it took me straight into XP (not a bad thing, but I have some stuff installed only on vista). I can use the keyboard as soon as the login screen pops up. I tried moving the keyboard to another USB port, but that did not change anything. What do you guys think? I'm running a virus scan, but it would take quit a virus to do this.

A:Keyboard unresponsive during boot

You're probably going to need to plug a non-usb keyboard in if you have a port for it. Go into your BIOS and make sure you have USB Enabled for DOS, Enable Legacy USB, or something related to it. Save and restart, plug in your USB keyboard and see how it works. I've had Vista change BIOS settings on me before. I don't know how it did it, but it did.

Hi all. I run a computer lab (21 identical computers) in a small secondary school. Occasionally, the keyboard on a computer will cease to function. The issue is only resolved after reseating the USB cable, or restarting the machine. How can I further troubleshoot
to ascertain the problem?

Some more info:

* The issue mostly (always?) occurs after a local user has logged out.
* I am not running a Windows server environment.
* The computers are all on the same workgroup.
* Each computer has multiple local user accounts.
* All computers are running Windows 7 32 bit.
* All have all of their Windows updates
* All drivers are to date.

Ok so it all started when I download uninstaller pro to remove a unwanted application. All worked fine until I allowed uninstaller pro to assist with my registry. It was supposed to update or something don't really remember what it said.(which I'm very upset with myself for not paying closer attention like I should) anyways when it prompted me to restart my PC I did and when It came back to the login in screen my keyboard was unresponsive. However my mouse was accessible so I try'ed for a system restore (another big mistake) after the restore finish and returned to the welcome screen both my mouse and keyboard were unresponsive. Oddly however my keyboard works just before windows login screen pops up, I have try'ed everything I can think of to fix this issue such as; unplugging both and plugging back in, restart after restart, changing both mouse and keyboard with new ones, and even tapping f8 to pull up restore still no luck I have no restore Cd so i can't even try that option Please if anyone can offer any advice to this issue It is very much appreciated thank you.

Today, after having this PC for about 2 years, after taking a break from a video game to help my girlfriend with her project, I returned to find my game not responding to the keyboard commands. I thought it was weird, went into the tech support for the specific game (world of warcraft) and as always, deleted my WTF folder... After none of that worked, I decided to play something else. The next game I tried to play (hearthstone) also did not respond to any key I typed. (I pressed esc and the menu did not appear, enter did not activate my messages, and typing out an actual message no key worked). I figured it was something weird happening to blizzard apps, so I uninstalled and reinstalled my drivers, as well as repaired all of my blizzard applications. While the blizzard applications were being repaired I went to youtube, and surprise surprise, I couldn't type in any windows whenever youtube was playing a video, however, whenever I paused the video I could type. I looked online and a few people mentioned that they had similiar problems with their computers, and the problems ended up being a trojan of some sort. I panicked, and called in favours from 2 of my IT friends, to see if they could remote access fix the problem. Neither of them found any virus' on my computer, and the last friend checked my drivers and they were all in check. It's not technically a hardware issue (USB port) because I AM able to type on the keyboard whenever I am NOT using any apps (like r... Read more

Win 7 was freshly installed on my laptop on a brand new 160 gb hard drive. 1st fresh install was Win Home ver 7 32bit. After installing 32 bit , realizied I mistakenly installed Win 7 32 bit Home version. Product key revealed original software was Win 7 Pro 64bit. Keyboard problem did not occur with 32 bit version. Once I installed the Pro 64 bit version the keyboard was non responsive.

Keyboard worked fine with 32 bit install and unresponsive after 64 bit install. Touch pad works.

I carefully removed and installed brand new laptop keyboard. Same identical problem. Non responsive laptop keyboard. Suspect this is a software problem but unable to know which/what software driver may be compatible with 64bit Win 7Pro version.

This was over a year ago and still there is no software (driver) fix for this. I am using a small keyboard on top of the laptop - Very Clumsy. I have hit a road block here and it has to have something to do with the changes described above.

Hi everyone,

Have a bit of an issue with Windows 10. Occasionally after an update something will go wrong and the PC will boot into the automatic repair. However when I get to the choose keyboard input screen, the keyboard and mouse are totally unresponsive.

Usually this goes a away after a couple of restarts, but it seems quite stuck now. The keyboard works fine to get me into Bios but after that goes back to the same unresponsive state.

If anyone had any idea of a possible fix I would be very grateful.

Many thanks,

Hi there,

I've had a strange problem with my computer recently, and if anyone wants the challenge of tackeling it, please feel free! I need help, so if anyone is willing to throw their hat in the ring, please do. Thanks

Here is the problem: started maybe 2 months ago in Warcraft III. I would be playing, and suddenly everything would freeze: video, sound, etc. Keyboard and mouse are unresponsive, and have nothing to do except press the reset button. After reset, windows doesn't detect any fatal error or anything like that--it restarts like normal.

The problem got worse from there. It happened almost every warcraft game--I was never able to finish a game! Then, it seemed to migrate to Windows Media Player: when I played videos, or even audio with the visualizations on, audio skips (i.e. the audio of the entire computer stops working) and then comes back after about 5 seconds or so. I can then rewind a couple seconds and play it again without a problem. This would happen a couple times, and then eventually the audio would skip, and within in this time period, the video would freeze, and finally windows Media player would freeze up. I am able to shut down WMP, and restart it no problem.

At first, I thought it might be a temperature thing, so I downloaded Motherboard Monitor 5, and watch my tempterature closely now. During Warcraft, I got up to 65C (but no higher) and I idle around 40-45C. I've been told this is not a big deal by many people.

I'm going to lean towards an overheating video card. Check to see if it has a fan, and is spinning freely. If it doesn't, you can pick up a slot fan to mount just above it.

You may need to buy a new vid card if damage was done, but the slot cooler is cheap and worth a shot.

Hi, I have a HPE Elite - 110f desktop and currently having some major problems with it.
I believe I hit some kind of virus or trojan that my AVG thing tried to force remove. AVG then restarted my computer.
After that, I cannot boot into windows at all. It has a completely black greyish screen even before the cursor appears (computer stays on like this forever).

I tried to go into safe mode, or make a system recovery but pressing f8 and f11 repeatedly to do it at start up does not give ANY response; as if I pressed nothing. I know its not because of the keyboard because I switched to a new one.
THe only thing that the computer responds to is f10, to the BIOS setup.

Don't know what to do at this point. ANY help at all would be wonderful. Thanks in advance.

A less drastic measure may have been a better first choice of action, but it is too late now. Trying to stop a factory reset could cause even bigger problems.

Should you ever find yourself in a similar situation, going into advanced options and seeing if there is a choice to repair Windows might be a better first move.

Hi all!

I am a new member here and my laptop has been very sluggish for a bit. It was always a bit slow but now it is kind of grinding halt slow. I got an iPhone in September and loaded some apps from it to my laptop like Simplify Media 2, ZumoDrive, Dropbox, MyDocsToGo, Evernote, and Air Video Server. I don't think they cause much issues but who knows.I am pretty sure it is not these programs which cause it. Since the slowness of my laptop has been around for awhile. It is just now that I have become proactive.

On another note, my sister recently had her sluggish laptop have more RAM installed and it is super speedy now. Could increasing my RAM help speed up my laptop?

Thanks!

Alright, I'm having troubles with my computer and I am even unsure to which forum to post in, but here goes nothing...For a while now I have been keeping my computer on 24/7 and using 'sleep' at night while I sleep. The reason I do this is because when I have been shutting it down or even restarting the computer the monitor (HannsG LCD), keyboard (Saitek) and the mouse (MX518) are unresponsive (IE: Not lighting up, no response). The thing is the computer still boots up and the fans start and I can hear the HD's spinning. Now in the past when this has happened before I have been able to get it to start back up by simply cycling power until it worked, this time it's not working. Now, like I said earlier I'm not sure if it's hardware or software (Windows XP), although I have checked all of the internal connections (motherboard, gpu, psu, RAM, HD's) and all is good, so I'm guessing thats its software. The reason I'm in this trouble this time is because I simply restarted my computer. Now, before anyone says to reformat I must remind you that my monitor is unresponsive so that is not an option (if it were i would do it).

After re-reading that last sentence I guess it could be a hardware issue, but I have no clue what could cause my mouse, monitor, and keyboard to stop working while having my computer boot, unless it is my MB. Alright, thank you for reading my confusing paragraph and run on sentences. SOMEONE PLEASE HELP!!! THANKS... Read more

I have a 6 month old dell studio 1535, and since I turned it on this morning the keyboard has been unresponsive. I tried to just restart, but it did no good. I sign in through a built-in fingerprint reader, so i'm not sure if the keyboard stops working after sign-in or if it doesn't work from the start. Everything else seems to be functioning normally- no error messages, the touchpad is fine, and the laptop itself doesn't feel overly warm to the touch after running for 2 hours or so.

details: Dell Studio 1535 - Intel Core 2 Duo T5750 processor - 250G hdrive - windows vista - basic built-in keyboard (not backlit)

Hi,

I've got a problem when booting up my Vista Business.

After I've deleted my old Windows XP partition to make my Vista Partition bigger (GParted), and after repairing the Boot Record (Vista DVD) to make Vista boot again (seemed to be the standard procedure i found) I tried to boot up my System. I didn't change anything in the system itself.
After I reached the Logon-Screen I could not use my Keyboards (neither my Notebook Keyboard, nor the USB-Keyboard I attached). I tried the Vista-DVD-Recovery again, I tried Safe Mode, I tried turning on/off legacy-Drivers, I pretty much tried every option in the Vista Advanced Bootup Menu (restore previous version, safe mode, with/without networking, debugging) but none of those helped. I tried different USB-Ports and also I tried to use the On-Screen-Keyboard (which didn't load up, maybe I uninstalled it a long time ago, I don't remember). The keyboard itself is getting power from the USB-Port as some lights are on, yet it's non responsive (e.g. pressing num lock button)

I can't find anything that I could still do there and I really want to avoid having to reinstall the system.

cheers,
meta
