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.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


My inspiron 5558 touchscreen started acting on its own. The touchscreen is acting spontaneously without any contact. The area of this irregularity is confined to the top middle part of the screen. This started after the computer was connected to an ethernet cable for a few minutes

I'm new to techguy ... would have rated myself "expert" WRT computers until yesterday, but I've been humbled. Desparately hoping someone can point me in the right direction.

Yesterday, my wife - instructed to avoid using IE, so browsing with Netscape 8.x instead - was exploring my nephew's MySpace site. She said that the monitor began flashing intermittantly (go black for half a second at a time, then come back on). Because she insists on running scripts, I instantly suspected some malware and ran some scans that came up clean (Symantec AV and Windows Defender antispyware). After a reboot, the problem was still there but a bit worse. I tried restoring to progressively older restore points, but that didn't work either. I found, in fact, that after the reboot, my keyboard did not work. In Safe mode, I get no monitor blinking, but the keyboard still won't work. I notice when I interrupt the boot process with the F8 key to go to Safemode, I see a brief note telling me there was a Keyboard failure before giving me the boot option menu (although keyboard arrows permit me to select from the menu). After some 5 or so successive reboots (to full mode), I don't even get a screen at all ... after about 30 seconds, I get a BSOD, blaming NV4-DISP (I have an Nvidia GeForce 8200 graphics card). The only way I can "move around" in full mode is in VGA, wherein I get my screens, but I get a blink every 5 seconds or so ... still no keyboard (I ... Read more

Hey everyone,

I have a toshiba m40 laptop purchased aproximately a year ago and never had a problem with the keyboard. About a week ago I decided to install an antivirus program offered by my university which is the University of British Columbia. It is a free anti virus offered because they cut a deal with the company. The program was called Sophos and after I installed it my keyboard began acting up.

What I mean is, toshiba keyboards have secondary functions which can be accessed by using the fn key and turning on the numeric/arrow function keys. So basically whenever I'm trying to type that secondary key activates without me touching it. I realize this is slightly hard to understand but I'll do my best.

For example, the entire left side of the keyboard just stops responding and only keys that have secondary functions work. It doesn't really work in any pattern it just goes haywire randomly with the key's turning on or off and functionality going in and out. Usually by restarting it turns out fine for awhile and might appear again. It seems to happen th emost when I don't have the ac adapter plugged in or at leats from what i've noticed

I searched a few threads on the site already and found a similar one about the m45 which from what I understand is the US equivilent to the CAN m40. SOme users suggested updating the bios which I already had done. I uninstalled the antivirus program already fyi and I also uninstalled a bunch of toshiba uti... Read more

I cannot access anything on the computer, including the Windows button doesn't do anything. How can I get into my laptop? Hp Touchscreen laptop is rather new. No additional software has been installed yet - only factory installed.  Laptop is HP 15-f211wm with Windows 10 operating system. Laptop was setup following instructions provided with the quickstart guide and on-screen prompts.

Ok, here's the background. My wife's pc (identical to my own, and running on Windows XP)was restarting at shutdown recently on it's own and I saw an error that said there was some kind of driver error. So, I uninstalled the nvidia drivers in hopes of installing the most recent ones. I don't know if this was the issue, but I was troubleshooting and I noticed that there was a recent driver update.

Well now I can't log on at all, because when I get to the windows login screen, the mouse and keyboard won't work. I see for an instance the cursor shows an hourglass, then nothing. I see the blinking cursor in the login field, but I can't type anything in there, and the mouse doesn't work.

So, I tried to do a system restore but it just sent me to the login screen, and no mouse or keyboard function persisted. When I tried to go into safe mode, it asked me what was the boot device I wanted to use (which after some searching I see is also an indicator of a problem, but I'm not sure what it means). I picked my HD and continued to do a restore to the last working config, and the same deal, can't login, no mouse or keyboard use at that sceen.

So, I tried going into safe and it shows both an administrator icon and my wife's user name, and I can't try either because again, the moust and keyboard aren't working here either!

I've had my Yoga 900 for just a little while (got it the day that showed up in stores). I love it, save for one thing. One time, it got into this mode where touches would randomly appear on the screen (the little dot you get when you do a touch). At the same time, random keys seemed like they were being pressed. And you'd press the keys on the keyboard but they'd give you a totally different keystroke than they were supposed to. This persisted through two whole reboots. But it wouldn't happen 100% of the time. It'd be fine for a few minutes, then start doing it again. I managed to get a BIOS update in and a reboot, and the problem seemed to go away. But then in the last day or two, it has come back, albeit much much less horrifically. They'll be a stray touch on the screen with my hands nowhere near it (I'm almost always in laptop mode). Or something weird will happen like my browser will open a new tab that there's no good reason for. All of these might be phantom touches, but some could be phantom keys as well. Anyone else run into this? It seems like it's probably the hardware, though I can't rule out software.

Main issue im having is the keyboard is acting very bizzare. First keypress does not register when I start typing or after pressing the spacebar. shift keys and backspace are intermittent. for example, on this sentence i had to press the "f" key twice as well as press every letter twice after each press of the spacebar. Reinstalled drivers, system restore, malware scans all to no avail. i'd guess it's a hardware issue.now the touchscreen:does not work 99% of the time but randomly appears to. When it's not working windows tells me no touch is available for this display. Seems like a poor connection to me as well as I can't seem to find touch screen drivers. anyone have experience with this?

Yesterday, after restarting my PC to finish updates from Windows, and installations from Autodesk and MATLab, my keyboard, touch pad and wireless mouse stopped working.After checking the drivers, I found that the keyboard and mouse drivers had a code 32. So I did a system restore before all the updates. Did nothing for the drivers.I tried uninstalling, updating the drivers; didn't work.Then I used CCleaner to clean up registry errors. No changes.Next, I went into the registry and deleted the UpperFilter values for the keyboard and mouse drivers. Code 32 was gone for HID keyboard driver and the HID mouse driver. But now the ps/2 keyboard driver and the synaptics smbus driver now had a code 10.After removing and reconnecting my wireless mouse's usb, I noticed that fixed drivers come and go with it, so I tried to find the drivers for the mouse to try a manual reinstall for my mouse. Couldn't find them, (Logitech's website was of no help).So I got Driver Booster to help me. The program said my PC had a lot of outdated drivers, so I decided to let the program update them all in hopes it would fix both the code 10 and let my mouse work again.And that's how the touchscreen stopped responding. Driver Booster had paused while downloading the driver for the Bluetooth as Windows Defenders stopped it. When I tried to allow the download, I notice my only method of interacting with my PC had failed.I force shut down the PC in hopes that the problem would be fixed. Didn't work.So now, I can...

I installed PS Now app in my PC and i wanted to get my wireless controller to work so I downloaded and installed SCP driver installer. I ran it but then the computer stopped responding so I decided to do a hard reset.  I held the power button to restart then once the computer and windows started, i am unable to do anything anymore since I am stuck in the home screen.  This is the screen wherein when you press any key or click the mouse, the system prompts you to log in your password to unlock the screen.  
My mouse, keyboard and touchscreen are all not responsive.  To isolate the issue, i tried my unifying receiver on another PC and it is working.  I am thinking my drivers perhaps got messed up.
Can you help me?  What can i do given that i can't even log back in to the system.

I've been using my u920t for almost 10 mont and i really like that i can still use the touchscreen when the keyboard ist out.

But a couple of days ago it stopped working. I don't remeber changing anything.

Windows now tells me the screen is not a touchscreen.
Once i put the screen down and go into tablet mode everything works fine.
Tablet PC setting in the control panel also disappear once the keyboard ist out..

I tried reinstalling the driver.
I also did a windows 8 refresh (no backup unfortunately)

Any ideas?

Thank you for your help.

A:Satellite U920T - when I slide out the keyboard touchscreen no longer works

> Tablet PC setting in the control panel also disappear once the keyboard ist out..
I assume this should be OK since the tablet PC settings should be available only if the notebook is used in ?tablet mode?

The point is that this notebook can be used in three different modes.
1) tablet mode -> the keyboard and touchpad are pulled in and only touchscreen can be used
2) laptop mode -> the keyboard and touchpad are pulled out
3) photography mode -> keyboard is pulled in but touchpad is pulled out and can be used as well as the touchscreen.

I?m not quite sure if the ?orientation lock button? (on the left side) would affect the touchscreen but fact is that using this button the automatic rotation of the screen orientation can be enabled or disabled.
If you are operating the computer in laptop or in photography mode, the screen orientation will always be in Landscape mode.

Please check also if the touch display has been calibrated properly
Go to control panel (win key + x control panel) -> Tablet PC settings

Here you will find the first tab called ?Display?
Click on ?Setup? button to start the setup where you could identify the touchscreen
In bottom area called ?display options? you could calibrate the touch display.

So I've had this happen countless times. The touchscreen stops working. The laptop is in perfect conditions. The screen, not even a scratch. I format the laptop, it still doesn' work.

The installer opens, installs the thing, then the program opens and immediately closes. This prompts windows to ask me if the driver installed correctly or that if it should attempt to install under a compatibility mode. No matter which I choose, it still does the same thing. It won't stay open for more than 1 second.  I've restored my laptop to factory presets a couple times already and the touchscreen isn't working yet because the driver/program/wizard thingy refuses to stay open after it is done installing.Can anybody help me? Perhaps share a different version of the installer? Thank you.

The round purple plug is a PS2 keyboard plug.
Try a regular USB keyboard to see if that helps.
Otherwise, check in the BIOS to make sure that the keyboard is enabled there.

This has been mentioned before. Have a search of this site, this may help.
Try turning on legacy usb support for keyboard and mouse in the bios. If this does not work reinstall the drivers using a ps2 keyboard. You can pick them up for under a fiver.

I need some help trying to solve a keyboard problem. Anyway, Awhile ago my keyboard decided to stop working... i remember there was some kind of usb port exceeding limitations error so i rebooted the computer and the keyboard didn't work at all. So I tried the broken keyboard out on our other computer and it still didn't work (so i thought it must be something wrong with the keyboard) So i got my keyboard that works from the other computer and everything was working again. But then shortly after the working keyboard stopped working (but it still worked on our other computer). So now none of our keyboards will work on the computer, however the keyboard that was working will still work when the computer loads up (e.g i can press f12/f2/f8) but when i get to the login screen i cant type anything so now i can't log in.

sorry that was a bit confusing because im really sick and have a huge headache =\

any help?

A:Keyboard stopped working!! cant login!

First are all the keyboards you ended up using USB? have your tried a ps2 one.
Second you can always access the on-screen keyboard to log in, in the meantime.
Start>Programs>Accessories>accessability>On-screen Keyboard

I am facing 2 issues.
#1. I changed the windows password for a user. After that, I am not able to login if I type the password in key board. If I type same password using On-screen keyboard option of Ease of access, I am able to login.

I thought it could be issue with key board. After login, I checked all keys are working fine.

#2.Due to issue #1, I created one more user and added it to administrator group. I am able to login to windows with this new user with password typed in keyboard. But after login when i type some characters, it displays other characters. For e.g., when I type '\', it shows '#'

Any solution for these issues?

A:Not able to login with password typed in keyboard.

It could actually be a keyboard virus/malware. I would start with a scan with Malwarebytes Anti Malware.

Hi guys,

After suffering from the google redirect virus for some time, without being able to fix it, my computer was infected by plenty of malware, including the "Vista Security 2011" and the one that hides all your desktop files. After running malware bytes, and removing ~20 infections, a restart resulted in being unable to use my keyboard or mouse at my login screen.

After fiddling, i've found that they tend to work fine in my BIOS and in the vista recovery CD UI, but not at the login screen, in safe mode or otherwise. I have tried both corded and cordless varieties, fresh batteries, and turning on legacy USB support in BIOS.

In the windows recovery UI, i've found that a corded USB mouse works, but my logitech MX610 does not.

Should I run a system restore? If not, what other options do I have?

A:Mouse and Keyboard not working at login

System restore seemes to have solved this, and, strangely, the redirect virus is no longer showing symptoms. Malware bytes must have fixed that...
Strange, given that it didn't fix it several times previously.

Well I have a problem, my keyboard stops working at the admin. login ( can't type my password in ). I can use temp. user, but have no access to windows security to fix what sounds to me like a virus or some crap. I don't have a start up disc for this machine. Anyone want to suggest ideas I can try?

A:keyboard only inop at admin. login

Is it a USB keyboard? Do you have access to a PS2 keyboard to try temporary?

Okay, so when my computer starts up, the keyboard and mouse won't work.
Tried different ones, wired and wireless, neither worked.
Some background information is:
I believe the problem is the registry, because I accidentally copied an entire computer's registry over mine.
I managed to get a Windows 7 repair disc and booted it up, and then I managed to run System Restore.
System restore just keeps saying "Restoring Files...".
My Specs, because you might need that for some reason.

Dell 560
2.7GHz Dual Core Processor (Intel Pentium)

Hello, my name is Brandon and I work in the IT department at my job. I have a very annoying issue I would like resolved, so I came here to ask for some insight. My goal was to clone the contents of an IDE hard drive (all partitions, programs, ect.) to a Sata drive so I could use a computer with better specs to run this operating system (windows xp) with all of my programs and documents unaffected. I have a working FOG server running but was unable to upload an image because the source computer was using a secondary pci nic and I could not get FOG to upload from that nic. (the onboard nic is broken) So, I had an alternative method to use DriveImage XML to back up the entire ide hard drive and restore it on the sata drive. This was for the most part successful, I had to change the master boot record to windows nt, after that it booted up fine. Now, I have made it to the Windows XP login screen. My mouse works fine, but the keyboard does not. I am joined to a domain and I have to press ctrl+alt+del. Keyboard works fine in POST and BIOS just not at the login screen. I tried using a program called EaseUS to create a bootable USB drive that would let me load drivers into the OS without booting to the OS, and downloaded Dell Optiplex 760 USB drivers. (the new host computer.) This didn't work. I then tried using my windows xp cd to repair windows and this didn't work either. My keyboard is usb and I thought to try a PS/2 keyboard but there are no PS/2 ports on the mobo..

A:Keyboard will not work at Login Screen

Should sysprep the image before moving it to a new system.

Sysprep the ide drive first and reflash the sata drive, you shouldnt have any issues with the keyboard.
