ok...so, i'm forced to use this onscreen keyboard, because my keyboard suddenly stopped working . tried switching it with another one i know works, and had the same problem with it, so, that rules out the keyboard it's self as having the issue. tried a sys restore...same prob. tried reinstalling windows, still have the problem. i have a driver for my texas instruments usb ports that is reading not successfully installed but i can't seem to find the driver 4 it anywhere, because they claim win 7 installs it automatically...but it obviously didn't. i have tried switching usb ports, tried pulling out the usb to the keyboard restarting, then plugging back in, and still have this issue. can anyone please help? ps: not getting error messages, and the keyboard claims "this device is working properly"

Answer:keyboard quit working...not the keyboard that is the issue.

Hello, Are any lights visible on the keyboard? If so, and your keyboard is not working, Try adjusting the connector for your keyboard and check the wiring, especially, if your connecting wire is in a stressed position.( i.e. bend
or crooked)

I have an emachine that is a few years old that my high school daughter uses. Today when she was typing a paper for school it got stuck on all caps, then it just quit working all together. I took the keyboard and put it on my computer and it works fine. My keyboard doesn't work on her computer either. I restarted which didn't help. I also retored the computer to yesterday's back up. That didn't work either. This computer does have some age on it but I was hoping to get it to last her until she gets that college laptop. Please any help would be greatly appreciated.

Aspire R14(R3-471T). Purchased about a month and a half ago, and been working fine until this morning when the physical keyboard quit responding. I have typing sounds enabled, and the computer does produce a click when I press any key on the board, but aside from that there's no response. No text appears on screen, I can't tab between fields or apps, or otherwise use the physical keyboard to do anything at all.  The touchpad and on-screen keyboard are fine, and Device Mangler says my kb driver is up to date. Anybody else experience this, or have any insights? Also not sure if my next step should be Acer support or the retailer (Costco). Thoughts?

My problem: My Keyboard's Numeric Pad quit working. I doubt the connection, but some time ago I installed IE 8. It seemed to give problems unknown with IE 7. It was on your program, I believe, that the advice was given to uninstall IE 8 and re-install IE 7, which I did. Unless I'm not remembering well, the number pad worked okay for both versions. Is there something to fix this within my system? Has the Keyboard gone bad? (All the other keyboard function seem n okay. Got a solution?

Answer:Keyboard And Mouse Quit Working

Was there any other problems happening before? I wouldn't think that you keyboard and mouse ports are faulty because it isn't likely that both keyboard and mouse ports fail at the same time.

I would be able to help if you can give some more information.

My keyboard quit working. Touch any letter & I hear a click. Every key, click. But the letters don't show up.

Luckily, I can use the onscreen keyboard but man, is it slow. When I click on a letter on the onscreen keyboard, I still hear the click but the letter does show up.

I have a Dell Inspiron 17 5000 series laptop. I've been having a little trouble with the keyboard for about a month. About once in a sentence when I type a letter, it doesn't type. i.e. keybord. Type it again, it shows up. This occurs with all letters. About once in a sentence, a letter I type will show up twice. i.e. twiice. Sometimes the space button doesn't work. i.e. Sometimesthespacebuttondoesn't work.

Any ideas of what can I try to fix this.

Thank you,

Vista 64 Keyboard problem Can't figure this one out. The keyboard simply stopped working one day in my Vista 64 "archive/experiment" machine. Not the keyboard or CMOS. I also have XP and Windows 7 64 on separate disks on this machine, and they all work fine with any variation of keyboards/drivers.

Keyboard works until the VISTA 64 logon screen comes up. After Log in using the on-screen KB, device manager shows drivers for the keyboard are "Error 39" in device driver. Same error condition in Safe Mode; tried installing fresh drivers, NIL. Tried installing USB keyboard, NIL. All variations work with both XP and Windows 7 64. Has to be within this install of Vista 64. Last changes prior to failure were series of Windows and Office updates. Have unistalled them (except for SP for Office), still same problem.

This is the first problem I've ever encountered that has me stymied. Short of doing a reinstall of VISTA 64, haven't found a way around this. I've looked but can't find any conflicts in either drivers nor registry entries. Has to be some unrelated SW that stops this driver. Pretty clean system, Office 2007 w/SP's, Nero Ultra 8 (9 is awful), Roxio 2009. I've reinstalled the gateway drivers, MS drivers, etc. NIL. I've unistalled NERO since the v9.0 was an abomination. Deleted the KB drivers in both SYSTEM32 and in WOW64 folders, installed clean copies. NIL. System is Gateway FX530, QUAD, 8800GTX, 8GB memory, 3 SATA drives, each with own OS.

Hello Jon, and welcome to Vista Forums.

You might see if doing a System Restore using a restore point dated when you knew the KB was working may fix it for you.

Yoga 14 20FY is the Best Buy edition. Running Windows 10 Home 64-bit.
 
I looked around and did not see mention of this particular issue.
 
Not exactly sure what triggered this, but it seems like a Windows update may be the culprit. My laptop keyboard has completely stopped working. The trackpoint and trackpad work fine. External keyboard works fine. I have done the System update numerous times and don't see any outstanding updates at all.
 
Have tried to disable the PS2 keyboard driver. It goes ahead and installs a Microsoft driver (dated some time in 2006) for this. Have the Bios updated to the most recent and then installed HotKey drivers - in fact, every update listed (whether critical, recommended or optional).
 
Is there anything else left for me to try before I try to open up the case? Thanks for anything that has helped anybody else with this issue.

KEYBOARD QUIT WORKING not immediately after win 10 upgrade from 8, but after some time. This is a relatively recent problem. I went and bought a replacement keyboard thinking mine haid broken somehow. The brand new replacement part does not function either. I am speculating that an automatic update may have caused this problem. The computer may have went into hibernation before but has been rebooted since. I do not know if the hibernation causes a permanent keyboard problem I just heard it may cause one. I attempted hard reset to no avail The TOUCHPAD STILL WORKS. G6 model g6-1d67cl / PN: A6Y42UA I am now forced to use a wireless external keyboard but would prefer a solution to the problem other than the on screen keyboard.

Yesterday two keyboard shortcuts that I use constantly quit working - Alt+Tab to switch between windows and Control+Click to open a link in a new tab in Internet Explorer. The only change was the download and installation of Turbotax Home & Business - in fact, the first I noticed the problem was while the installation was taking place. I searched the Internet and found one older post on this site that addressed the Alt+Tab problem, but I did not see a resolution. I checked my Registry and the "coolswitch" settings are where they should be. I called Turbotax, but they were of NO help. Not positive it is related to that installation, but very suspicious. I have a Microsoft wireless keyboard and mouse. Can anyone help? Thanks.

Hope I am in the correct forum for this. Laptop is a Dell Inspiron E1505 that I rebuilt. It has always worked even better than my husband's new laptop. I am pretty sure this is a virus/trojan, not a hardware issue, but could be wrong why I am on here. I was typing the other night & it all of a sudden started typing letters I was not typing & the lights on front of laptop started flashing. I stopped immediately booted into safe mode & ran superantispyware & went to bed. Next morning, it said nothing found. so then I ran malwarebytes, nothing found & avast scan, nothing found. Then the keyboard quit working all together, but touchpad still works. I hooked up a usb keyboard & it works fine. When I restart computer it gets stuck on the windows 7 boot menu & will go no further until I hit enter, never had to do that before. Also a few times firefox would only run in it's safe mode, now it's like normal but takes forever to open the first window. Went back into safe mode, ran microsoft security scan. Found 1 item, deleted that. Still doing the same thing. I dont think it's the keyboard, because I installed a new one about 6 months ago & too many other strange things happening all at once. Someone please help! I am about to pull my hair out with this one!

Hey guys, I'm new here, and I want to ask you how to fix it? (the title says it all), it's not even work in the BIOS menu (well i can't even enter it :v)
I'm using windows 7 64-bit, I am typing with my father's laptop. Sorry for my bad english, anyway Thanks.
(And because I'm new here, i don't know if this is in the right or wrong section XD )
 

Answer:Acer Aspire E1-431 Keyboard is not working at all (All key).

Try using the keyboard on another computer and see if it works. If it's a USB keyboard, you should be able to use it on your father's laptop. If NO keys work on EITHER computer, the laptop is most likely ready for the garbage dump. I suppose you could try opening it up and cleaning it, but if it's not a very expensive keyboard I wouldn't even bother. Just replace it.

I can use the keyboard when starting in safe mode but not when windows starts??? The Tried reinstalling the driver but didn't work

Answer:Acer Aspire keyboard is not working

When Safe Mode works properly but Normal Mode does not, it typically means that a driver or some software has just been installed that is interfering with Normal Mode.The types of software that can do that are drivers, antivirus products, third-party firewall products, CD/DVD burning software or virtual CD/DVD software.If you can remember installing anything like that, uninstall it in Safe Mode then restart.

I charged it until the light turned blue, but the tablet no longer registers the keyboard on the Bluetooth screen. Sometimes an Unknown device will appear on the bluetooth screen, but I can't connect to it.  I have no idea what to do and I can't find anything online about it. Has anyone else had this issue?

(i'm going to try and explain this the best i can)My Acer Aspire E15 laptop's keyboard has stopped working so I'm typing this with an external keyboard. I've only had this laptop it for a little over a year and having the keyboard just stop working is very dissapointing and a little frustrating. Anyway, I was wondering if there was any possibility of getting this repaired, because I've been informed that the keyboards of these laptops are connected to the motherboard in a way that would require getting a whole new motherboard just to replace the keyboard. I don't know if this is true or if there is anyway to repair my keyboard without replacing the whole **bleep** motherboard, so if anyone knows it would be awesome if you could help me out. 

Answer:Acer Aspire E15 keyboard not working?

Not sure where they got that info. However you can replace the keyboard. That does take some doing. But I think a person would most likely replace the whole top part. That is track pad and all. I would say look on eBay for you type and see if they have any.When you take apart you remove power, battery, 14 or 16 screws from the bottom. Remove drive from the bay. Use old credit card to separate the 2 half. Then there is some ribbon cables that would need to be removed carefully. If you got the whole thing. Then put in New one same way you took out old. However if you just got the keyboard you will bee to take out 8 to 10 more screws peeling tape from the ribbon cables and to access the small screws then the keyboard can be removed. For me I would try and find whole top plate would be less work.James

Hello, I have an Acer laptop running on Windows 7 and the other day I spilled something on it while cooking. After cleaning it off (just with a cloth) most of the keys wouldn't work. The ones that did didn't wok correctly, i.e 'u' would be 'bu' and so on. The next day, none of the keys worked. I cleaned it with hand sanitizer, and some worked, but again there were messed up 'double keys.' It now seems that they are almost all dissasociated from their original keys. Like, F9 is now spacebar, 7 is enter, etc. I've already restored the computer to factory settings the way it was when I bought it, but its the same. How do you reset the keys?

Answer:Acer laptop Keyboard not working

Your problem is that the contacts on the underside are not clean and the small currents that make the contacts now are bleeding between contacts and causing unexpected results like the double entrys and changed entrys. The only way to fix this is to remove the battery, disassemble the lower computer parts, remove the keyboard and either clean all of the contacts and other sticky surfaces carefully with alcohol, or replace the keyboard and clean all other sticky surfaces. For MOST, this is a job for a professional. Tell him EXCATLY what happened so he knows what the job entails. This will probably not be an inexpensive repair and if it were an older machine it might not pay, but for a fairly new machine that otherwise works well, it probably pays.You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

I just recently encountered a problem with my Acer Aspire E3-112 notebook keyboard that I had been able to fix and would like to share the solution with anyone who may encounter the same problem. I had used a USB flash drive to copy some files without any issues. Shortly afterwards, I noticed that the 8 key on the keyboard had stopped responding, but all other keys worked as normal. I had pressed Fn-F11 (NumLk) and the 8 key started working again. Pressing Fn-F11 again disabled the NumLk mode, and the 8 key also stopped working again. I tried rebooting the notebook, shutting down and powering back up, reinstalling keyboard driver, etc, but nothing worked. To rule out Windows OS related settings, I rebooted into BIOS, and noticed that the 8 key still didn't work when I tried to change the time, but the other number keys worked fine. The solution that finally solved the problem was to shut down the notebook, and then using a paper clip, push it into the Batery reset pinhole on the bottom of the notebook for four seconds. Upon normal powerup, the 8 key started working again. If your notebook has a removable battery, then removing and reinstalling the battery might have the same effect.

Hi all,

I'm new to this forum and have a request for help,

I have an Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M3-581TG with the following spec:

Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M3-581TG NX.RYKEK.010

Except i'm running windows 7 and have just the 500GB HD on its own.

I only have had it since christmas and have been VERY happy with its performance so far...

BUT lastnight I switched it on and the keyboard and touchpad is completely unresponsive, when I went into control panel-hardware-keyboard there was a red "x" symbol beside it and when I ran a diagnostic on it it stated the driver wasn't installed properly and searched itself for a fix, It seemed to find something and tried installing it but then reported it wasn't installed properly.

I restored the laptop to two different previous restore points with no effect and so have since undid all restores (using the onscreen keyboard and a mouse).

I have tried pressing F2/F6/F8 on startup but with no effect....

I have seen a fix that has seemed to work for people where they disconnect the power lead and battery, press and hold the power button for 30-45 secs, connect just the battery and reboot, however my battery is internal and can't be clipped out like most laptops...

I'm running out of ideas and most driver update sites seem to be a trick to get you to install their software for free then charge you for anything else so any advice would be GREATLY appreciated, I don't want to have to get an external HDD, back everythin... Read more

Answer:Acer Ultrabook Keyboard stopped working!!

Try the following drivers.
Oddly enough, I could not find official keyboard drivers for your model, only touchpad drivers.
I'm assuming that your keyboard uses a windows included driver.

These are for Windows 7 64bit.

Try different drivers for synaptics, for example, Acer Aspire E1-572 Synaptics Touchpad Driver 17.0.6.13 for Windows 8.1 64-bit Drivers download - Synaptics Software Update
EDIT:
If you find ETD Ware in Programs, right click and uninstall it, that's your Elantech but I couldn't see it in your Device manager.

Hello. I am hoping that someone will have a solution to some weirdnesses going on with my Acer 5050. It came with Vista but I reformatted the hard drive and installed XP. Everything had been going smoothly until I decided to download Service Pack 3. While Service Pack 3 was downloading my network hiccuped or something and Service Pack 3 was aborted mid download. After that happened the computer was a complete mess, so I reformatted the hard drive and re-installed XP. I am now at the point of downloading all MS XP updates, virus protection, anti-spyware etc.

The problem I seem to be having is sometimes after a reboot the touchpad and keyboard will not work. An external wireless mouse will though. I find if I do a reboot both the touchpad and the keyboard will come back to life but often when the touchpad and keyboard will not work the computer will not reboot, I must pull out the battery to get the silly machine to reboot.

Anyone have any ideas? Thanks, Brenda

If it were me, I'd try the K/B on another computer. If it works, then you know the K/B is good and the issue must be the computer it's presently connected to. This would mean the issue is likely software(drivers). You might want to check the manufacturer's website and see if there are newer Windows 7 drivers for the device. If there are, download and install them and reboot and see if your K/B doesn't work then.It matters not how straight the gate,How charged with punishments the scroll,I am the master of my fate;I am the captain of my soul.***William Henley***

The keyboard and mouse stop working occasionally, but if I force a reboot, (just pushing the power button) the keyboard and mouse work again.

I hope I'm posting this in the correct forum. I'm working on a friend's laptop: a HP Pavillion ZV6000, running Win XP Home SP2. Neither the onboard keyboard or the mouse are working. I've reinstalled the OS & drivers, & they both worked for a time, & then quit again. Again, I'm not sure if this is hardware or software related, so wasn't sure where to post. I took the keyboard cover off & all seems to be connected ok. I have updated all the drivers, etc... No spyware seems to be present, as none is detected in AVG, Ad-Aware, or Spybot. Does anyone know if this is a hardware issue, & if so, where to start with troubleshooting? It seems that laptops are made so that a person almost cannot get inside them, so if I take it apart, it would be great to know what to look for. In device manager, under "Mice" there are 2 devices listed & I'm assuming one is the mouse I have connected using a USB port, which works: "Microsoft USB Intellimouse" -- which seems fine & "PS/2 Compatible Mouse" which has a yellow exclamation point by it; however, no luck with updating drivers, etc... Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

Question: USB quit working

My USB quit working and I can't figure out how to fix it.  I use Windows XP.  Everything has been working fine since I bouth the machine two years ago.  A couple days ago I plugged in a thumb drive (which I have used many times before) and was told the "device was not recognized" by windows.  The thumb drive still works at my office.  Now my printer is "not recognized" either.  I am not terribly computer savy, do I have serious problems, or is there an easy fix for this?Thanks

Answer:USB quit working

I think the patio's (another forum member) regimen is called for here.  Open Device Manager.  Go down to Universal Serial Bus controllers and expand that section.  Right click on each item and uninstall it.  Close Device Manager and restart your computer and let Windows reinstall the USB drivers.  Now, see whether your computer recognizes your USB devices (flash drive, printer, etc.).

Hello,I have a Dell c610 notebook. Windows 2000  The cd-rom quit working.(NEC DVD+RW ND-5100A) It will not read a disk. I can't find an updated driver on the internet. I have unistalled, reinstalled, trouble shot, etc.  Everything shows OK. Took some advice to remove filters from reg.  No filters showed, so I did not delete anything.  After doing a search, the upper filter was located a few files down and the lower filter was located way down in the Enum folder in the Modem file. I don't know what that means or much about working in the reg.But I recently switched from dial up to cable Internet, which was around the same time the cd-rom stopped working.Could there be a connection, what is your advice on fixing the problem?  The floppy disk drive module works fine when it is in the same slot.

Answer:CD-ROM QUIT WORKING

Have you tried a CD-Cleaning disc to make sure the drive is clean?

Hey...I have a ASUS P5N-SLI mobo and everything worked fine and then all of a sudden i turn it off and back on (properly) and it beeps saying the cpu fan is not working...I plugged it in a few different fan locations that were currently working and it still failed to power on even after being turned off and back on....I checked the temperature and the CPU was htting 70 so i turned it off and have left it off as ive seen that temp can be very dangerous...Does anyone have any suggestions for fixing? It is a watercooled fan by coolermaster..I can give more details if needed...Thanks for reading and hopefully someone can help
 

Answer:CPU fan quit working

Should still be under warranty. CPU fans can fail anytime without warning, but most last a remarkably long time.
