Toshiba laptop keyboard & touchpad frozen

Question: Toshiba laptop keyboard & touchpad frozen

My friend's Toshiba laptop's keyboard and touchpad completely froze recently. Function keys seem to be the only thing working and the touchpad IS enabled. Hard shut down and restart did nothing.So I was able to it home and hook in an external mouse which worked. Navigating with the on-screen keyboard and external mouse, I tried to reinstall touchpad and keyboard drivers but have had problems.So again, the function keys work on the keyboard but nothing else. One other thing I found not working is the computer restart. Computer will shut down and boot up alright. If restarted it shuts down to a black screen, sounds like the fan is still running, and never boots back up. Then I need to hard shut down and restart.The laptop is a Toshiba Satellite L505D-GS6000 (apparently already reconditioned) running Windows 7 64-bitTouchpad and Keyboard drivers installed are:HID Keyboard device (ver. 6.1) - working properlyStandard PS/2 keyboard - says device working properly (but has disappeared from device list on occassion)HID-complaint Mouse - says device working properlySynaptics PS/2 Port Touchpad (driver ver. 11.____) - states "This device cannot start (code 10)."Tried updating/reinstalling drivers. Toshiba website has updated drivers for the touchpad (ver 13) but no keyboard drivers. I haven't been able to locate basic keyboard drivers.Not sure what else to do.Any advice would help. Thanks!

Preferred Solution: Toshiba laptop keyboard & touchpad frozen

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.)

Answer: Toshiba laptop keyboard & touchpad frozen

reconditioned...personally i would stop messing around and do a factory restore, after saving all the files, factory restore will delete the C; drive and reinstall the OS from the hidden partition, effectively taking the machine back to the day it was bought. then replace all your files and folders.if its still under warranty take it back.i hate computers!but cant help myself....

Hi

I dont know whats wrong with this notebook but I have had it for a few months and the touchpad froze, sent it to be fixed it came back and worked for 24 hours and froze. Couldnt have another 2 days off work to get it collected and dropped off so now use an external mouse. 2 days ago the keyboard froze and wouldnt work, then it worked again for an hour or so the next night and froze - no keys did anything, even function keys. It seems to work when the machine is cool.

Is this connected to the frozen touchpad?

Does anyone know why this is happening?

Thanks

If the OS recovering doesn?t help, it seems that it?s something wrong with the hardware.
In this case your notebook needs a service :(

Hi,

a Tecra 9000 freezes after about 5 minutes from boot up. I ran chkdsk /r and found some errors. I can boot in safe mode with networking and it appears to be fine.

Does anyone have a suggestion about how to find the problem and resolve it? I've seen many suggestions, but they al seem to be random possibilities. I'd like a logical set of actions which can specifically find and fix this issue. (I rarely hit the keys unless I know why!)

Many thanks to those far more knowledgable than I.

Extremely frustrated I've looked and tried to find a solution to no avail. When the notebook boots up, it gets to the login screen, I wouldn't be able to do anything at that point but I can log in because I have a fingerprint scanner, from there I'm 100% dead in the water. The only way to shut down is to hold down the power button. While the computer is in bootup, I have touchpad/keyboard function, I can escape to boot options, BIOS, repair, etc. and have normal functionality while there but not in safe mode. I have ran SFC with commands several times, chkdsk with commands several times, nothing changes. SFC says it found problems but was not able to fix all of them and the last chkdsk found nothing wrong.

Here are the events leading up to:
* had disk errors and bad sectors in old hard drive (could not repair)
* cloned old hard drive to new hard drive (there were errors but the new hard drive booted and worked for the most part correctly)
* in the process of trying to fix missing setup files for applications and other miscellaneous small issues, I ran troubleshooting, updates, chkdsk, sfc, etc. removed various applications, and added a few, nothing worked. I installed Revo uninstaller to remove Kaspersky Internet Security as it is THE MOST stubborn application to remove I've ever experienced.

Answer:Frozen touchpad and keyboard on HP Pavillion dv6 3225dx Notebook

If you have (and should have) a USB keyboard and mouse connect them and see if they will work.
Since your file system was already corrupted you cloned the bad files to the new drive.
If the USB devices work you should do a Repair Install.
If that doesn't work do this: Using System Recovery, Factory Reset and Minimized Image Recovery Options HP Pavilion dv6-3225dx Entertainment Notebook PC | HP? Support
From this tut:
Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7


   Information
On newer models HP Recovery may offer a Minimized OS Recovery option when booting from F11, which retains only the OS, Recovery Manager, HP Support Asst, and HP Wireless LAN. This is as close to a clean reinstall as you can get without doing one yourself.
● If you clean reinstall only to C and leave all other partitions intact, F11 Recovery key should still work later if you need it.
● You can also Extract HP 3rd Party Software from RecovCD.

Got a user who has a Acer 5100-3583 notebook, the keyboard and touchpad are unresponsive after multiple reboots and standard trouble shooting yield no results.? The unit is only 14 months old and out of warranty.
Any clues?

It will read from DVD-ROM drive as it reads a DVD movie when inserted.
No USB devices such as keyboard and mouse work either.

Thanks

Answer:Acer 5100-3583 notebook keyboard & touchpad frozen..?

- in windows, press Fn+F7 (or the combination you have to activate/deactivate touchpad
- In the bios (press F2 when it appears the ACER screen when booting), be sure that the Tpad is enabled.
Purchase a usb mouse and keyboard and by pass the problem.
Restore to an earlier date to make sure the configuration wasn't dumped somewhere along the line.
Reformat the system.
Check with Acer Site under troubleshooting to see if there are any other solutions.
Last resort and if your capable open casing to check for loose connections. ( It does appear Acer has problems with touchpads frequently)
Luck to you and this is about all the thoughts I came up with right now. Let us know...Jazz

I think you mean the "touchpad" is frozen, not the keypad.Try re-installing the touchpad driver which you can download from Toshiba support:Choose your region from this page: http://www.toshiba.co.jp/worldwide/Then choose your country from the new page.Mouse-over "Products" and choose "Laptops", then click "Support" at the top of the new page.

And everything was working fine, but after restarting once after some updates the mouse and keyboard stopped working!
I found I could get the keyboard to work by pushing the power button to send it to sleep then waking it up, but then the mouse still didn't work.
I can push F2 on the keyboard to get into the BIOS, but can't navigate in it (but can with a USB keyboard.)
Mouse and keyboard don't work in safe mode even.

Hi everyone - newby here. I have this acer (aspire 5100 series) about 3 yrs old with windows xp. It starts more or less normal but the entire board and mouse are not working. I have tried pressing F2 during start but it will not allow the keyboard to work. I have also tried Fn + F6 and every other key but it simply starts with a browser open and the pointer in the middle of the screen but nothing but the start button works. I have pulled the battery numerous times, it is not fried. I think there is a simple fix to this as I had a guy repair this problem a couple of months ago and he didnt reformat it. I think it may have something to do with a video driver or lack of..Any ideas greatly appreciated.

Keyboard & Mouse: Acer Desktop

Ever since I would say, the past upgrade for Windows 10, my mom's Acer desktop's keyboard has been really laggy. For example, when I go to wake it from sleep to unlock it, the keyboard's Number lock and Caps lock keys do not want to light up. It seems as if the keyboard doesn't want to respond in a timely manner along with the computer. The same goes for the wireless Logitech mouse.

Keyboard: Toshiba Laptop

The same as I mentioned above goes for the Toshiba Laptop that was originally mine, that I have given to my sister.

Hi!
About 2 months ago I bought this super gaming laptop by Toshiba(on sale 1 yr old and guarantee expired)(Store didn't tell me that part)and of course, I use it for gaming.
Last month I was into FPS and the touchpad kept getting in my way since the palm of my left hand kept swiping over it and I got killed easily.
therefore, to get rid of the problem, I disabled it from BIOS ( the updated 2.10 BIOS version ) and when I got out of the FPS spirit, I wanted to re-enable it again. but for my surprise it wasn't working!
I tried EVERYTHING I could think of.
-returning bios to original settings
-recovering my laptop to out-of-box state
but nothing.

does anyone here have ANY idea of how I can re-enable it again?

PS: Talked with a Toshiba representative and he didn't help me at all!

Answer:Toshiba laptop touchpad driver

Hi GKahn
Welcome

Try looking in control panel for mouse , see if it can be enabled from there.

You can also try hitting the fn key and f9 at the same time. On Toshiba that should lock and unlock the touchpad.

I have a Dell lap top, I am going by memory from what I have read in this Forum.

Howdy guys!

I'm kind of stuck and have no idea how to fix this.

The other day I was using my laptop just fine. I turned it off for the night and came back to it the next day to start using it again. When I turned it on, the touchpad doesn't work. I restarted the computer and it still wont work.

I plugged in a USB mouse and updated the drivers. Uninstalled the drivers and reinstalled and its still not working.

When I went into the Mouse control panel in the hardware tab, Windows isn't picking up my touchpad at all. It finds only the USB mouse, but no trace for my touchpad even in the device manager.


I'm running a Toshiba satellite A305D-S6848 laptop with Windows 7 Pro 32bit with the SP1 Beta (was working fine with the beta till just the other day and have been running the beta sicne it came out), have a Synaptics Touchpad (or however you spell it).

I ran several virus scans and AVG/Avast/Kaspersky couldn't find anything JUST to be safe that it wasn't something like that.

Anyways thanks guys and hope to have some smart people figure it out

I have a Toshiba Satellite 1135-S1552 laptop. Operating system is XP.

Recently it's been acting up- the laptop is now 6 years old.

The LCD has a transparent light blue strip -about an inch and a half thick- vertically onscreen. When I press the frame of the screen below the stripe- it disappears for a split second.

Also, the touchpad has been stalling. It alternates between fine and responsive to a lag or disconnect between the cursor movement and motion I use on touchpad.

Do you think these things are related?

Hi there,

Im having problems with my Toshiba Satellite Pro A200 Touchpad. It was fine until when i was walking down the stairs and accidently dropped it. The hard drive had to be replaced and the touchpad wansn't working. I've tried to diagnose the problem by checking device manager updating driver's etc. And ive narrowed it down to 2 causes: Damaged motherboard OR the touchpad wire has come loose/off. So as im really good with computers and very good with laptop's i need to disassemble my Laptop to get to the touchpad wire and check it out first. And then i will know if it is the touchpad or the motherboard. And now I have never disassembled a laptop before i have no idea what the process is especially for my medel which i cannot find guides for as it is not a very recent one. Could someone please give instructions on how to disassemble it? I will leave model and other info. about it at the end of this post. I would appreciate links to a guide etc or just simple easy instruction and pictures would be helpful.

You can find this out if you type C: and hit enter then type dir and hit enter.

I have a Dell Inspiron 9300 that has a vertical and horizontal scrolling option on the touch pad. It worked fine when I got the laptop but now the scrolling doesn't work. The touchpad works, just won't scroll. I must have accidentally changed the settings or something. I've read other postings and tried to go through the control panel but there is no option for a touchpad in my control panel and I can't find anything under mouse properties that I can change to fix this. Also, my keyboard now jumps all over the place. In the middle of typing my cursor jumps to another sentence and starts putting in my letters, how is that happening? That just started, it wasn't doing that before. I've looked through downloads thinking I needed a new driver but you can't tell what is what so who knows what to download! If anyone could help me, please email me at [email protected] as I can't always find this forum. Thanks for your help!
 

Answer:Laptop Touchpad and keyboard

I LOVE CSI....except NY.

I have an HP laptop with scroll on the touchpad.

When I go to "Mouse" in Control Panel I see Touchpad functions and an "ALPS" logo. I assume that is because of the touchpad software installed. Perhaps you have somehow uninstalled or corrupted your Touchpad software???

As far as the cursor jumping goes...I also had that problem. It was caused by the BASE of my THUMBS touching the touchpad while I typed. I'm more careful about that now, AND I turned DOWN the sensitivity of the Pad. Hope this helps.

The keyboard on my Toshiba Satellite laptop is messing up a bit. First off it was dropped yesterday on the carpet. When you hit certain keys now different things pop up. When you hit certain keys no other key pop ups instead commands pop up. Like if you hit the C key the Explore window pops up the S key it goes back to the welcome screen. One key asks you if you'd like to use the virtual keyboard so I clicked that and a keyboard shows up on my screen. When you click the buttons with the mouse on that keyboard on the screen the same output happens. I thought it was my keyboard but now I'm wondering if its an internal problem since the the virtual keyboard wasnt working. Any idea's? I have tried a system restore but thats all I could think to do.

Hi,
I bought my Acer laptop (aspire 5610z) used a couple months back. It's always been a good laptop, except that the mouse pad keys were "loose" and wobbly. A couple days ago, I decded to fix both keys. I took the screen, top cover/palm rest, and keyboard out. Nothing too major. I succeeded in fixing the keys,and they both work like new. (a plastic piece broke off each of them so I superglued them back together.) I put everything back together, powered it on, and realized that the touchpad didn't work. Like anyone would do, I took it back apart, and realized that the ribbon cable running from the touchpad to the motherboard was out of its housing, so I plugged it back in. It still wouldnt work, so I stopped for the night. The next day, I was tinkering with it, and somehow the keyboard stopped working too. I get mad at this point. Its not like I broke anything all the times I opened the laptop up. Frustrated, I stopped for the day. Sunday night, I try to fix it again, and to my suprise and luck, the keyboard and touchpad worked again. I was happy, and started using the laptop. I didn't use for more than 20min, when guess what, the keyboard, touchpad, and the volume/play buttons on the side all stopped working, again. (I unplugged that volume/play ribbon cable, also.)The keyboard will work in screens like where it says "windows error recovery, start in safe mode, command prompt, normal." It just won't work in regular windows.

Answer:Laptop touchpad and keyboard problems

Zif cables

You need to be really careful when taking apart a notebook..the ZIF cables (Zero Insertion Force) sometimes called Flex Cables are extermely fragile...the connector on the motherboard has little slides that you pull out, then remove the ZIF connector, the cable will go in/out with "Zero Force" To install make sure the slide is OUT, then put the ZIF cable in and you push the slide back in...cable connected. If you just pull these cables out and try to force them back in you will shred the ends and the keyboard/touchpad/etc won't work.

if only SOME of the keyboard does not work, like a small area, maybe the 1, 2, q, w, a, keys..that means the ZIF cable is not inserted all the way...reseat the cable and it should work fine..

Many of these cables can be bought for $5 or so on eBay if you need to replace them...I have bought several of them from a guy..I can get his information if you need it.

Last night while just browsing around sites my keyboard and touchpad simply stopped working (mind you, these are sites I frequent and shouldn't be dangerous), And now I'm stuck using a Usb keyboard/Mouse.

I checked the device manager, and there's a yellow exclamation point next to the keyboard. So I did some basic troubleshooting like disabling/enabling the keyboard, updating, and reinstalling the keyboard drivers. So far, nothing has worked.

However, I have found that my function keys still work correctly. People have suggested using functions like Fn+7 and such, but those have done nothing so far.

And if it helps, I'm using a Toshiba laptop with a synaptics touchpad.

EDIT: I've also checked for viruses by first running a quick scan on Malwarebytes, then a full scan.

Connect a USB mouse and then uninstall the keyboard and tablet driver in Device Manger. Reboot. Does that solve the problem?

You might want to try a system restore to a date before the problem. Just make sure that anything on the desktop that was added since the system restore used is backed up.

This may also be a malware issue.

Hi Everyone:

I have a Toshiba A85 S-107 Satellite laptop. The keyboard and touch pads are acting weirdly, a little too weird to describe here. Basically the keyboard won't work at all and when I try to use it in Word, for example, it doesn't type but random windows open up when I hit keys. The touchpad works OK in that the mouse goes where I want it to but the buttons also do weird things when pressed. Since the problem began the keyboard worked fine once after a restart and it ALWAYS works perfectly in Command Mode. I tried to get it to work in Safe Mode but no good.

I've cleaned a lot of crap out of my drive and did all the usual virus scans and it doesn't help. Someone suggested I reinstall the keyboard driver but I have no idea where to find it and Google searches for it turn up nothing. Any ideas appreciated.

Hey guys (and gals) My issue is pretty straightforward but seems like it just wont go away.

About two days ago I was at a friend of mines and I restarted my computer and all of a sudden the keyboard and touch pad were not working.

The keyboard works in the bios and at the POST. Once any windows components load it stops working, the weird part is that after about 30 minutes to an hour, it works. I'm sure most of you will agree this is not practical at all. I travel a bit so a USB keyboard is out of the question.

It does not work in safemode
I've tried System Restore, System Refresh and Restore to factory defaults.
None have worked.
I've scanned for Malware, rootkits etc... nothing.
Updating drivers for the keyboard and uninstalling and reinstalling did nothing.

The touch pad seems to not work at all. No matter how much time has passed.
The computer is a Dell Inspiron 15 3520 w. Windows 8 64-bit

Let me know if you guys need any more info.

How "exactly" did you restore it factory defaults? The reason I ask is because of how Windows 8 "recovers" itself doesn't necessarily affect any system files that maybe lost (causing loss of keyboard and touchpad function).

(Im sorry ahead of time for this being so long)

I've had my laptop for 6 months almost exactly and in mid-May I started having an issue with my function keys. I had my laptop setup to have F5-6-7 as skip back, play, and skip backward because I frequently watch videos on VLC or listen to music on WMP. Those three buttons started to not work at all as soon as I had another program open (I noticed it most when I opened chrome). I am a blogger so music is usually always playing when I'm on Tumblr, but back to the point. After a week or 2 of searching everywhere for a fix and opening a post on the Toshiba forums and getting no help at all I went to a restore point a week and half before it happened. The issue stopped but my laptop's speed dropped to where it was almost unusable and anytime I typed on the keyboard it did more gibberish than actual letters. I downloaded a 8.1 factory ISO from Microsoft's website to wipe and fix anything that might be wrong. It worked but I had to reinstall Toshiba drivers so I could have the correct drivers for my screen, function keys, and my processor. Now I'm back to a buggy keyboard. The problem seems to lie in those drivers but I don't know how to fix the problem and keep full functionality. But as someone who likes to write I really need my keyboard to work properly.

An example (off my memory) of what it does it when I press backspace it types /w3 (or something like that).

I'd really appreciate it if anyone could help me fix this. Thanks.

Answer:Toshiba laptop keyboard is buggy

The company that makes all of the keyboards for all OEM's. They have been getting a lot of keyboards that fail after a while. You should be able to have Toshiba swap out keyboards, since you are less than a year, and this is a common event that is now going on two years.

I have two Toshiba Satellite laptops, same model. One I have only had to replace the keyboard one time (took forever for the repair center to finally get a keyboard that was not smashed, broken in half, failed when installed). It was over a year, so I paid around $200.00 for them to fix. Even with going on 3 months, I could not get them to budge on taking at least 25% off of the repair costs, because of their failure to uphold a 30 day turn around period as I was promised under my business contract with them.

The other one we have, it is starting to have symptoms on the second keyboard installed after the first failed. It is only on the number pads, but still is something that should not be happening. That one failed after a year and a half of use.

If you have someone local that can do the work. You can get the keyboard online at Amazon.com or at Laptop Parts & Repair - SparePartsWarehouse.com which sells OEM and compatible keyboard units. I have dealt with them in the past for a Compaq Laptop I had a while back. Quick turn around on the repair.

The two units for my C850d-st3nx1 is $60 for OEM, $30 for Compatible.

A friend's granddaughter was fooling around on his computer, and he noticed she had gotten into the control panel. Subsequently, he realized the keyboard wouldn't work. The granddaughter used the 'visitor' logon to get into the computer, but she didn't have the administrator's password to be able to change anything in the control panel. My friend can still boot up to Windows using the 'guest' logon, but because of the non-working keyboard, he's not able to type in his password so that he could initiate some repairs. The keyboard works on his son's computer, so it is not deemed defective. I have software so that we can reset his password before Windows boots, but we will need to be able to use the keyboard to select the right options. Is there some alternate way to be able to either put in the password, or use the reset disc to be allow access to the RESTORE option? We did try to use another keyboard (USB) which Windows recognized, but we were still not able to use the keys. Thanks in advance for any and all input.

Can't see your specific model listed but perhaps this "how to disassemble Toshiba laptops" page might be of use? There are a few other similar websites out there judging by the Google search results I got. Chances are you may want to buy a broken laptop on eBay and use it for spare parts as they are often sold. Unless you can get a repair done through an authorised Toshiba repair centre or whatever?

It seems like it's still kind of sticky, too..Is there anything I can buy to clean this crap out of there that may help it? Or anyone have any tips for me? I just bought this laptop about 6 months ago so any help is appriciated. Thanks!

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

About 10 days or so ago the keyboard on my Toshiba satellite laptop stopped responding. I managed to do a system restore which sorted it out. However, a week later ( last Thursday), the problem returned, but system restore wouldn't work the 2nd time. On researching, I find that it could be down to a recent Windows 8 update. I found the following link, but how do I get into the regedit option without the keyboard working?. Any help would be great! click here

My Toshiba Satellite A105-2712 running Win XP keyboard has stopped working except for four keys in a row, 8, I, K, and , , Weird right? I have tried finding a kbdclass.sys file on the net to no avail and there is no such driver on my recovery disc that came with this piece of #@*^. It is like Microsoft has stopped recognizing Windows XP, go figure. Short of formatting my entire harddrive (which I do NOT want to do) how can I fix this? I have eliminated the drivers in the Hardware Manager and it has reloaded apparently the same drivers because it doesn't work after a wizard run. An external keyboard works fine but I don't want to carry this with me forever. I have not spilled any liquids in it and I did not sit on it and after 3 years of reasonably good service this is what I am rewarded with. Any suggestions gents on this perplexing conundrum. Thanks ahead.

My laptop (ACER Aspire 1640) is struggling. The symptoms are:

1) It started with the keyboard behaving oddly. First, random keys didn't work (mostly the s key).

2) Then, whilst booting, beeping sounds would prevent the booting process. However, I was still able to boot by using f12. Both these symptoms indicated that a key was being pressed (assuming the s key since this was usually the one behaving strangely). Therefore, I removed some keys and cleaned underneath. This didn't seem to make much difference.

3) More and more keys would stop working after booting. However, once the laptop has "warmed up", 10 minutes or so after it has been turned on, all keys are again working.

4) The touchpad has stopped working.

5) The ACPI reports battery power incorrectly. It indicates that there is only 50 minutes of power left when 100% charged. However, I have verified that there is actually 80 minutes. When the battery indicator reached around 5%, I let the computer run until the battery was drained. This draining took more than half an hour where it should have been a matter of minutes considering that the indicator said that only 5% was left.

6) The PCMCIA slot has stopped working.

7) The mobile phone that I connect to the laptop via a USB port is having trouble getting reasonable Internet speeds. I have tested the phone on another laptop with the same configuration and the same cable, and here speeds are as expected.

My assumption is that the laptop is not ... Read more

Answer:Laptop - keyboard, touchpad, pcmcia and usb malfunction

No solid ideas to offer you. I suggest that you experiment a bit.

Run on battery only (since it is capable of being fully charged).
Use external keyboard and mouse. Some laptops accept a ps2 y-connector so both can be used at the same time. Mine does not, as an example.
I have not tried USB connectivity for either the KB or the mouse. While battery is considered a stable power source, remove the battery and run off the adapter. This will check out the filter & regulator.

Yours symptoms are many. However, replaceable parts on a laptop are hard to do without professional help. Opening the case & looking for loose or pinched cables may not be worth the risk/hassle.

A couple days ago, my keyboard and touchpad mouse stopped working. I thought it was a hardware issue and ordered a replacement keyboard. As for the touchpad, I'm just using a wireless mouse. I replaced the keyboard a couple days later with the new one, and when I turned on my laptop, it works again, but when I put my laptop to sleep and wake it up, I hit enter, and then it stops working. I cannot type anything until I restart my computer. I figured it has to do something with the drivers, but I'm not too sure. Here is my computer specs:

Product: HP Pavilion dv9700
Model: dv9925nr
Windows 7 home premium 64bit

I've gone to the HP website to get the drivers, but they do not support windows 7 for my computer.

I have major issues with my Lenovo laptop.  I have had touchpad issues since day one (Nov 2012) and now have major issues with my keyboard. From the beggining, my touchpad would either be overly sensitive or non-responsive at all.  (I hate how the cursor defaults to a particular part of say a Word text if you leave your typing inactive more a number of minutes.)  The touchpad is also overly sensitive!  When my left hand simply hovers over the letter keys while my right hand is positioned over the touchpad, it somehow creates some shortcut command and changes up the screen, particularly the zoom function when I glide the mouse horizontally. HOW DO I MAKE THIS STOP?  
 
I also have issues with starting Windows.  A black screen turns up and when I run the Task Manager, Lenovo TouchZone comes up and I have to end the program.  How do I fix this permanently?
 
Then just last night, the touchpad had again been irresponsive, as it does all the time sometimes, and so I turn it off an on (maybe that makes it worst), and then I started having issues with my keyboard!  It doesn't type all letters just some. Sorry I can't explain.too well..but I'm semi frantic with a few writing deadlines coming up! Consider i'm on a lil island with little access to serious tech help. When i try to use Word some floating keys appear over the tool bar...its all just so weird! Please help!

Answer:Issues with p580 laptop - touchpad and keyboard

Anna,I dont know what might be causing it but your latest issue, the floating, letters is what would show if you had pressed the "alt" key, as these are the keyboard shortcut identifiers. Assuming you havent pushed the alt key yourself this indicates that windows has been incorrectly told it has been pushed by the bit of oftware that detects the keyboard key presses. I am not a lenovo or windows expert, but I imagine that this indicates fairly serious problems with, at the very least the device drivers that control the input devices (i.e keyboard touch-screen etc) I would recommend returning it to the place of purchase immediatly (dont wait at all if you can). Other than this I could maybe suggest that a small part of the issue *may* be caused by having the sticky keys feature turned on. If this is the case sticky keys can be truned off by pressing both the left and right shift keys at the same time. Good luck

Answer:Laptop keyboard and touchpad not working on windows 10. Please help

Hi Ronalzhe. Welcome to the TenForums @Ronalzhe.

First I'm going to recommend unplug your laptop, remove the battery, hold the power button down 25 secs, unplug all USB devices. Let it sit five minutes. Reassemble, do not plug in any USB devices. Boot.

If that doesn't work then you could try Advance Startup options. To get this power up computer, when you start to see the circle of dots press and hold power button down until laptop powers off. Power up and when the circle of dots appear again hold the power button until it powers down. On the third pass it let it boot.

Boot to Advanced Startup Options in Windows 10

Hopefully at this point your mouse will work and you can click trouble shooting, then Advance options. At this point I would try a System Restore. If mouse isn't working there are the arrow keys but that doesn't help much if keyboard is dead.

You sound familiar with device, you could go to Safe mode but if keyboard isn't working there will be an issue. If on any screen you see the Ease of access icon you could click on that to get onscreen keyboard but that assumes external mouse is being responsive.

Please post back.

Hello everyone. I have one big problem. I reinstalled my 8.1 pro (legal copy, disk been fully formatted) and it was okay for few hours. Next time im starting the laptop, my keyboard and touchpad doesnt work. I plugged USB mouse and keyboard and it works just fine. I went to device manager and besides Standart PS/2 keyboard and mouse icons there was orange triangle meaning that i have problem with drivers. I searched drivers online, but unsuccsessily.. After few hours of trying to fix it, my Standart PS/2 Keyboard turned into Unknown device and now im completely lost. Adding photo of device manager, i hope someone will help me here.

Answer:8.1 pro laptop keyboard and touchpad doesnt work

Since we do not know the make and model of your laptop.
Should try the laptop manufacturer's website to see if you can find the drivers for this. Does look like there missing.

What does it tell you when you right click the ones with yellow exclamation points ?

You can right click and select update driver software, either search automatically or browse your computer, select signed driver from the list is shows you.

Ever since I've upgraded my dad's laptop to Windows 10, the keyboard and touchpad stop working randomly, and would work only after I restart the computer. (logging off, switch user, standby mode doesn't resolve it.)
There is no pattern to it. Sometimes it would be ok for a few days, sometimes it would happen again after a few hours. I mostly do internet browsing on the laptop.

When the problem occurred:
- The keyboard AND the touchpad would both stop working at the same time.
- USB mouse still works. (I do not have an external keyboard to test)
- The lights on the keys themselves (eg caps lock, wifi) would still remain on if they're activated but cannot be toggled on/off as usual.
- The device manager still showed no problems with the mouse or keyboard.

Things I've tried:
- sfc /scannow
- disabled sticky keys
- used the generic drivers for keyboard and touchpad
- reinstalled the drivers for keyboard and touchpad
- updated to the latest synaptics driver
- made a new synaptics trackpad profile
- disabled touchpad when using the USB mouse

Laptop stats:
HP Pavillion dm1-4002AU
Windows 10 Home 64bit (upgraded from Win7 and then reset to a fresh state)
AMD Radeon HD 6230 Graphics
6GB RAM
Synaptics Driver Version: 19.0.12.95 06Jul15
Synaptics PS/2 Port TouchPad
Lenovo ThinkPad PS/2 keyboard

This is very exasperating. I would appreciate some help in stopping this problem permanently, thanks.

Hello,

I have a Toshiba L755-S5244 laptop that has quite suddenly lost all sound. I have been having some issues with it for the last 6 months or so, where if the sound got too loud, it would just shut the speakers off. This only lasted for a few seconds to a minute and then it would come back on. If I used headphones, the sound never shut off.

A few days ago, I was uninstalling some programs and I think I uninstalled the driver for the sound by accident, but I caught it and canceled the uninstall process. However, the next day I had no sound, even in the headphones. I have uninstalled and re-installed the sound device a few times now with fresh drivers from Toshiba's support site, but nothin doin. You can see sound registering on the mixer, but there's just no output.

I have also made sure that the correct playback device is selected, and that nothing is accidentally set to mute.

I believe the problem could be related to my other issue...

A couple of keys on my keyboard have stopped working as well fairly recently. My left control, x, c, and v keys don't respond. Is it normal that individual keys stop working due to average wear and tear, and only coincidence that it's the 4 keys used for clipboard shortcuts? Any time keys have failed on my on other laptops it was usually the whole board.

Are both of these signs that the laptop itself is ready to die? It's only about 4 years old, so I'm hoping there are some fixes that I'm not seeing.... Read more

Answer:No Sound and Keyboard Issues On Toshiba Laptop

Did you install the chipset drivers too?
You might need those as well as a sound driver.

As far as testing the keyboard. Attach an external keyboard and see if you have the same problem. If not, then it has something to do with the laptop's keyboard.

Answer:KeyBoard problem on a toshiba laptop windows xp

Welcome to TSg Alliebeee

I faced the same problem some time ago but I figured it out on my own. I am assuming, you have the standard QWERTY keyboard which looks like this:

Also, I am assuming that when you press Shift+2, it does not print the @ symbol. Same is the case with " symbol right. However, you needn't worry about the pound symbol key as the standard keyboard doesn't include it. You will need to buy a new keyboard which has the key embedded and supports it's provision.

Anyways, now back to the topic. You can resolve the symbol problems by performing the following steps.

1 Click on Start.
2 Select Control Panel.
3 Access Regional and Language Options.
4 Switch to the Language tab.
5 Click Details... under the Text services and input languages section.
6 Move to the Settings tab.
7 Under the Default input language section, click on Add....
8 Select the appropriate keyboard layout, but under Input language select English [United States] and click Ok.
9 Click Ok.
10 Reboot.

See if this helps or not. Then, tinker with the settings until you find the desired one. Good Luck.

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.

Hopefully this fixes it all.I'm somewhat leary of doing updates, however. Reading around online, some had this issue for their keyboards and mice due to Windows 10 hybrid shutdown and fast startup.
