Answer: Acer Laptop keyboard and Mouse not working

hello
reboot your computer and after your bios has done its check, before windows begins to load, press F8 to access the advanced boot options. You can try to boot last known good configuration from there.
See it that helps first

good luck

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.

Thanks in advance!

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.

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 turned on my acer aspire 7250 laptop today and the period key (the key by the right shift button) what do i do (not even the question mark slash key works) i restarted the laptop twice and i even look on acer.com << that period is working because its the other period which is on the numeric right numbers where the num lock is... i think my computer still under standard warranty..
 

Answer:acer laptop keyboard key not working

If the key is not working, then that's a hardware issue. If your laptop is still under a warranty, you should consider sending it for repair.

Below is my hijack this log. I have an Acer Aspire 3000 laptop, it is only 2 years old. Worked perfect last night. Today I booted it up and the mouse wouldn't work. I bought an external mouse and it worked, but the keyboard didn't. Got an external keyboard & it works. Did my keyboard & mouse fry at the same time? Or is there some evil behind all this?

Since I had some silly windows update about a year ago, I could not just shut the lid without the computer going to a black screen with no response. I learned to deal with it and not do it without expecting to have to manually hardboot and go through the "windows failed to shut down properly" scenario every time. <---- this is not the issue

After someone shut the lid and had this issue come up, the VISTA log in page came up as usual. BUT i could not use the mouse or tab over to enter into my log in...

After rebooting, it went to the "blue screen of death" that tries to restore the comp to a previous "happy place". I want to BUT i cant click YES!

I cannot attempt to reboot in safe mode. The board and mouse will not respond in dos/boot up either...

WTF??? Once I locate a USB keyboard I will attempt that route, but until then, please tell my WHY my computer(windows) is doing this to me.

Answer:Laptop - Keyboard and Mouse NOT working

That sounds like sleeping, not freezing. Just hit a key or press the power button, and it should power right up.

Did you try just pressing enter on the login screen?

if you cant use your keyboard in BIOS, your devices are dead. If you can't use your mouse/keyboard in Windows, there is a driver problem.

I have toshiba satellite L305D, I have installed Windows 7 build 7600. I have a strage problem, my keyboard works fine in BIOS and any 16 BIT environment like in PE for Windows XP, but stops working in Windows environment. But if i resume my laptop from Standby or Hibernate, keyboard starts working fine. I tried seraching every forum, even with toshiba forum, still no response.

This error is totally OS indipendent, i.e I tried installing windows XP both 32bit and 64 bit, the problem is same, and with vista also problem is same. And one more thing to install Vista and XP I have to use external USB keyboard but thanks to windows 7 that it had included onscreen keyboard during Preinstallation Environment also.

Hope to get suggestive answer in no time.

I'm currently running Windows XP on my laptop and after working for a while the laptop and touch pad will lock up. They stop responding but things on the screen keep going. such as a web page loading or a program running so I know the whole laptop has not locked up. Other things on it such as the cd-rom work and such. I have tried to plug in a keyboard and a mouse but it still doesn't respond. I have even jumped over to Linux and reinstalled Windows a few times hoping it might fix it but I keep getting this problem.
 

Answer:Laptop keyboard and mouse stop working

It would help to know what kind of laptop it is..

You get the same problem even in Linux?
The separate mouse and keyboard you tried.. Were they USB or PS/2?
The embedded touchpad and keyboard may be hardwired to the PS/2 controller, that may be malfunctioning. USB keyboard and mouse should work.

I'm helping a friend with his laptop because since only a few days ago, the keyboard and mouse stopped working. I had him reboot it a few times but no effect.
I brought over a live linux CD and booted off of that, the touchpad mouse and keyboard worked perfectly.

So I'm guessing there is something with Windows that is stopping it from working. Laptop running Vista Home

Been searching the net and forums but haven't found a solid fix for this.

Ok so a whole slew of problems, and I am sure there is a simple solution, if not then theres always a technician I can make a visit to.

I own a HP Pavillion Laptop dv2618ca - bought it at best buy on boxing day. I DO have antivirus running - Kaspersky antivirus so I know this is not a virus issue or some sort of hack that I downloaded. I don't download anything on my school laptop - everything i put on it is bought and legitimate.

Alright So it starts with my deciding to update my computer and get it running up to date. I did windows Update and went through all that and it restarted computer - it was fine. I decided to update my graphics drivers so I headed over to the HP website and got it, but realized - HEY, this driver is an old driver. There is a newer version out but nVidia.com doesnt have the driver for my laptop. Ok, lets head over to laptopvideo2go and see if there is a 3rd party driver. As a note, I have used them before they always worked fine. I looked for compatibility on the driver i decided to install and it said it would work.

Installed it and then.. I get the dreaded BSOD. Well, not to worry ive dealt with it before so I decide to boot safe mode... No dice, the laptops keyboard isnt working. Neither is the mousepad when it tries to do a system repair and asks me to do a system restore.

First, the default location that Windows Mail uses is:
c:\users\%username%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Mail. A system restore would not affect this.

Do you know whether or not your laptop contains a hidden recovery hard drive partition? It most likely would be drive d:. To activate the HP Recovery Manager, press "F11" repeatedly upon boot-up; however, you said that your keyboard does not work.

I have a laptop Advent 7088, and it appears to have lost all input functions. Turning the computer on works fine, but neither mouse or keyboard functions. The laptop loads to Windows XP login screen, but again, neither the mouse or keyboard functions. I have tried plugging in a USB keyboard and mouse and still nothing. There is not PS2 port for normal keyboards or mice. Also which I find strange is, althought the option is there, I can not enter the bios, nor will any function key work to allow me access to other menus. Even with the USB keyboard in, I still cannot gain access to the bios or anything. I have tried resitting the ribbon cables for both the onboard mouse and keyboard. I have attempted to do what various other people have suggested. but seem to come up with nothing. Can anyone help at all?

Answer:Mouse scroll and keyboard stop working until left click of mouse

Hello mpmckee,

First run Antivirus, Malware, and Spyware scans. Remove anything the programs find.

Note: if you need some suggestions on which tools to use, let me know.

Afterwards, test functionally of mouse and keyboard.

If no change, run System Restore, choose a Restore point before the issue started.

Again test behavior of mouse and keyboard.

If the issue has been resolved, go ahead and reinstall windows Updates.

Although the Acer documentation refers to the driver providing task bar icons for low battery power, upper case lock, etc. there were no Acer drivers provided. The machine as delivered is using the standard Microsoft drivers which do not provide taskbar icons. I have contacted Acer and they say they do not provide drivers!

I would really like a battery low indication as the batteries don't seem to last all that long!

I am not sure where to go from here. Is Microsoft Intellipoint the answer? There are lots of downloads for Logitech mouse/keyboard drivers - would they do the job - I guess it depends how compatible the Acer keyboard/mouse combo is with Logitech?

The battery tray icon can be had by right clicking the taskbar and selecting properties > then going to the Notification tab > checking the Power box > closing it then rebooting. As far as the rest, I'm not sure.

This new computer is an Acer Notebook.  The key board and mouse pad stopped working.  If we plug in a detached keyboard and mouse  it will function, but then it would be like having a desk top, rather than a Laptop.  Has anyone ever heard of this happening?  We sent it back once, and the company ( under warranty replaced the Mother board)  but it happened again and the same way.Now heres the strange thing,  It happen exactly after he down loaded a Sprint wireless card to access the internet.  When it was repaired, he again put the Sprint wireless card , download the program, and when the program said, complete, not restart your computer to take effect,  once we restarted the computer, again the keyboard and mouse pad again does not work.  Does anyone know if Acer is prone to have problems?  I would of never purchased an unknown computer like Acer, but he won this notebook at his High school Graduation party, so we felt blessed......... or were we cursed?  Any ideas?  he's off to college in two weeks, and I dont want to spend another $ 60.00 dollars to ship it to mfg. 

Answer:Keyboard and Mouse pad don't function on a Acer Notebook

I can understand your reluctance to spend money of shipping, but that's what warranties are for.  Does Acer not have a repair depot near you that you can take it to?In my experience Acer is usually more reliable than that, is there a possibility that the wireless card is bad, or that the tech didn't know what he was doing and made a mistake?

Answer:Acer Meriton M2RH requires PS2 Keyboard and Mouse Have USB

Probably not until you get it working. But you can get a PS2 keyboard dirt cheap at a local computer shop to have for this type of situation. Once you have a PS2 keyboard you can go into the BIOS and disable the Halt on Keyboard error and enable USB Legacy/Keyboard and jutst use your USB keyboard. You can also try a PS2 to USB adapter but they don't always work with every keyboard.

I want be able to connect that to my desktop with USB and be able to use it as both keyboard and mouse (have both the keyboard and trackpad work)

My desktop is right next to my bed, so I sometimes swing the monitor around and put the keyboard and mouse on the bed. But it's damn hard to use a mouse when you have bedsheets and blankets and other stuff that's soft as a surface.

Also, I can't have any compatibility problems, it needs to work with all 3 systems in my house that I may want to connect it to. Mac OS, Windows XP/Vista, and Linux (Ubuntu and Fedora)
 

Answer:I want to turn my laptop keyboard and trackpad into an all-in-one keyboard and mouse

would anyone happen to know, and can give me a step-by-step?

My son has an Acer 5532, windows 7 home premium laptop. He was using it last week and as he typed on the laptop keyboard it started to type jjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjj, and he was able to back space only to have it happen again. Shortly thereafter, he lost the ability to use the track pad or the keyboard on the laptop. I had him restart the computer and it was stuck on the boot drive and the a long shrill beep, I then closed the laptop and restart only to have same thing happen. After going online I tried every combination I read about and miraculously was able to get the laptop running, the keyboard and trackpad still do not work, I got around this by using the usb port to use wireless keyboard/mouse combination.

Please remember before you post, I am not super savy on the computer, you maybe have to ask me info, but I might need step by step info to provide it.
Thanks for your help!
 

Answer:Acer 5532 frozen keyboard/mouse beeping bios?

At first glance I would suspect a failing keyboard,a jammed key or multiple jammed keys,many PC's including desktops make a beeping sound if keys are held depressed while booting and halt the boot process.

Have you disabled your keyboard and mouse in bios somehow or disabled the halt on keyboard and mouse? We really need to know the steps you've performed to get it working,it will offer valuable clues as to the problem. Also neither will work again until they have been re-enabled.

There are a couple of things I would try out of the box,download and burn Linux mint to a disk,load it up and check the functionality of the mouse and keyboard,you will have to re-enable them in bios,leave halt on keyboard disabled for this test so the computer will load.

http://www.linuxmint.com/download.php

This will rule out any software or driver problems.

If your computer won't load at all with the mouse/keyboard enabled you will have to physically disconnect the keyboard from inside the laptop,download your service manual from ACER and follow the disassembly instructions. Removing keyboard is pretty straight forward usually,just a few screws,usually a couple of hidden tabs near the control keys and then un plug it.

Anyway I'm getting a little ahead of myself.

Answer:acer aspire mouse pad not working

Hi and Welcome to TSF!

Did you accidently disable the touch pad? Check the keyboard for a key that does this.

Also, you may want to reinstall the driver.

Before this round of trouble I discovered a problem with one of my graphics cards when they were in SLI with Blue screens and other nasty little things occuring when running Windows; I removed my secondary graphics card from the system to see if I could get a more stable OS, which I did.

I decided to test to see if the other graphics card running on it's own would lead to a stable system, however I was getting zeros on the VGA BIOS bootup screen and other problems before I even reached Windows Vista.

I did sucessfully boot into Vista and enter my password (using the keyboard) and move the mouse around, however once I had logged into my profile Vista began asking me if I wanted to install the drivers for the keyboard and mouse, I selected to update from the Internet and when Vista did not find any drivers for either device it disabled them.
Eventually I got both the keyboard and mouse functioning again by reinstalling Intellipoint pro and the Logitech setpoint.

While using the second graphics card I noted some distortions such as zeros appearing on the VGA BIOS screen during boot up, so I decided to switch out the graphics cards again, again this caused Vista to forget about my keyboard and mouse, I am however able to get onto Vista a combination of a cheap usb mouse I had laying around and the Vista on screen keyboard.

The fix I used previously (reinstalling of Intellipoint and Setpoint) has not works,I have also attempted to manually install the drivers through dev... Read more

I'm not sure why this is happening as I don't think I've installed any new software recently which could hae possibly caused a conflict.

I am asking this for a relative because they can't use their computer.

They say that their mouse and keyboard have stopped working. They can only turn the computer off by pushing in the power button. They've had this computer for a few years now. It's a Dell Dimension 2400 (I think), WinXP, about 640-768MB RAM, 60 GB hard drive which is about full, and I think it's about 2GHz Celeron processor. It's also on an (unsecure) wireless network for the purpose of using a DSL connection.

They told me that when they turn on the computer it will go to the AOL screen and that's it. Their screensaver works, but the mouse and keyboard do not.

The mouse is a wireless Microsoft mouse and I think it's PS/2 but I'm not certain. I don't know what brand the keyboard is but it's not wireless is PS/2.
That's all the information I have at this time. Unfortunately they're not too computer savvy and if I didn't already know their computer specs, they never would've been able to provide that information.
Is there anything that I should check out when I go over there? I've never come across this kind of problem before so I'm not sure what to do, especially since I can't use the mouse or keyboard. My first guess would be to try another PS/2 mouse and/or keyboard with the computer turned off. Then if that doesn't work, maybe try a USB mouse or keyboard, which we don't have.

Hello,

I have a USB mouse and keyboard, and I have them in my PS/2 ports because my Windows 7 does not see them in the USB-ports.

I bought a wireless Mouse and Keyboard, and they can not be seen by my computer, and they can not be in the ps/2 port.
I have no idea why not, but it would be no problem if my computer could see USB-input devices.

I bought a Wacom Bamboo tablet a few months ago, and it also won't work on my windows 7.

They all work on my other HDD, so it is not a broken USB port.
All my other USB-devices (Stick, DVD-burner, USB chargers, External HDD, Etc.)
do work.
The only things that do not work are input devices like my mouse, keyboard and pen tablet.

I hope someone can help me.

Answer:USB Mouse and Keyboard not working

I don't if this will fix your problem. When I went to a wireless mouse and keyboard, they wouldn't work also. I found the problem to be is that the usb receiver on my tower wasn't able to pick up the signal. To fix the problem I plugged the receiver in a usb extension cord. This lets the mouse and keyboard to transmit the signal to the usb receiver. No obstructions between the computer and mouse/keyboard. Hope this solves your problem.

Hello andrewww. Welcome to the Forum.

Sounds like your USB ports are bad.

Of course, questions that came to my mind: New computer? Old? How long has it been running the OS? How long have the devices worked? I assume this is a desktop.
If you fill out your SYSTEM SPECS under your forum profile a lot of these questions would be answered and you would get better answers.

Have you tested other USB devices, like thumb drives, external drives?
Have you tested all of the USB ports?

Did you fiddle with the connectors while under power? PS/2 ports are not hot swappable. Look in Device Manager to see if you have any listings for those devices. Should state in the description if they are PS/2 or not. If present in Device Manager, remove them and reboot.

I'm sorry if this thread has already been sorted but I can't find an answer to my particular problem.
I changed my keyboard and loaded the keyboard driver and since then the keyboard or mouse will not work.
I switch on the pc it boots ok but as I said KB or mouse will not work.
I shut down via power switch to force the pc to ask "start normally, safe mode etc" at this point I can use the keyboard, I then select any of the above, allow the PC to boot, and same problem.
I have tried to "Repair" with Vista disk but I have a Reminder program that is "ontop" so cannot get access to the Repair window because --- thats right KB and mouse will not work.
Can you give me any help please on how to access the control panel, as I feel sure that if I remove the KB driver all will be ok.
I have connected the KB for which I loaded the driver no go. Replaced KB with a no frills one, no go.
I was using a wireless mouse originally and have changed that also to a basic one.
Please help

Answer:Keyboard/mouse not working

Hello Still Learning, welcome.

Ok so a quick recap; you updated your driver, now neither kb nor mouse work. You tried a different kb and mouse and same problem. Reinstall of Vista did nothing.

If you boot in safe mode does the kb or mouse work? Even if just the mouse, you can fix it.

More or less as the title says.I've already tried every usb port.
Tried a Usb -> PS/2 adapter and that didn't work.
When the computer loads the keyboard seems to work, though when it reaches the password screen it somehow dies..
The mouse seems to work in the password screen and for about 30secs after the comp is loaded..then it dies...
I can now no longer get into my vista boot to change anything (unless there is a way to fix w/o mouse and keyboard)

Is there any possible fixes for this =D?

Answer:Keyboard & Mouse Not Working.

Is this a desktop or laptop? Have you tried safe mode? Is this at home or office? The easiest fix I have found for this type of issue is using remote desktop to the pc and allowing the drivers to install.

Hey

First of all my System confiquration:

Motherboard: Asus P5N32-E SLI
CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad at 2.63GHz
RAM: 4GB 800MHz OCZ DDR 2
Graphics Cards: 2 x XFX 8800GTX (factory overclocked, underclocked inside Vista for driver compatiblity)**
Hard disk 1: 150GB WD Raptor SATA (contains Windows Vista )
Hard disk 2: 500GB Seagate SATA2 (Storage)
Hard disk 3: 500GB Seagate SATA2 (Contains Ubuntu)
Primary OS: Ubuntu 8.04 64 Bit
Gaming OS: Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit
Keyboard: Microsoft Natural Ergonomic 4000
Mouse : Logitech G5 Gaming mouse

** Currently only one graphics card is installed in the system, the other one has began displaying strange behaviour and I need to RMA it for a replacement.


As noted above I discovered a problem with one of my graphics cards when they were in SLI with Blue screens and other nasty little things occuring when running Windows; I removed my secondary graphics card from the system to see if I could get a more stable OS, which I did.

I decided to test to see if the other graphics card running on it's own would lead to a stable system, however I was getting zeros on the VGA BIOS bootup screen and other problems before I even reached Windows Vista.

I did sucessfully boot into Vista and enter my password (using the keyboard) and move the mouse around, however once I had logged into my profile Vista began asking me if I wanted to install the drivers for the keyboard and mouse, I selected to update from the Internet an... Read more

Hi there,

I have a relatively new Dell computer that was, up until recently networked wih 4 other computers. My roommate who did the networking did something to the computer so that he could control everything from his laptop (when the password screen popped up, he had to use his wireless keyboard from his laptop to enter it into the Dell).

Here is my problem - my roommate moved out (and very far away) and when I go to turn on my Dell computer now, the password screen pops up, but the mouse and keyboard that is plugged in do not work. I've tried a USB keyboard and a PS2 keyboard and neither work.

I know the password, but is there anything I can do to enable my keyboard and mouse?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Kristy
 

Answer:Keyboard and mouse not working

Only thing I can think of is to check the BIOS settings and I'm not even sure which settings you'd look for. Even though your roommate has moved, are you still in contact? Given the small amount of information you're probably able to post (i.e. if you're not able to log into your PC you can't very well tell us what the settings are) your roommate would probably be the best to give you advice.

So my keyboard and mouse stopped suddenly working last night. It was working just fine before last night. My computer froze and i had to hard reset it by turning the power off and then i turned it back on. I turned it back on and got to the windows start up menu and thats when i noticed I couldn't get my mouse or keyboard to work.

And everytime i start up my keyboard and mouse it lights up in the bio start up menu and as soon as it gets to the windows to log in thats when the lights turn off on the keyboard and mouse.

I can use the keyboard just fine with the arrows and commands in the bio setup just fine. And I have no idea how to start it in safe mode because with windows 10 Apparantley you can't use the f8 option anymore and they said that sometimes it works with shift and f8 at the same time to get into safe mode but that still doesnt work

I've been in a rut the past 6 to 8 hours googling and everything trying to figure something out and i am broke to bring it into a shop.

I don't have the windows 10 disc to do a complete wipe either because my computer came with the free upgrade

This is my last hope and I would greatly appreciate anything.

Thank you very much.

I rebooted windows to work with Linux for a bit. When I rebooted into windows, I got to the login screen, but the mouse and keyboard simply don't work. The red light under the mouse is dead and the NumLock (or CapsLock) keys do not change the light.

This happened before I reinstalled, and I couldn't fix it.

When i play a computer sometimes my mouse and keyboard completely dont work at all and i keep hearding a beep noise, i try taking the plug out and put it back in but stil doesnt work. It works fine when im not playing computer games i just wanna know how i can fix this. Any help would do thanks
OS: windows xp

Answer:keyboard , mouse not working

The beeping is most likely the system speaker. If thats correct then your computer is trying to tell you that something is wrong. What kind of mouse do you have? Also, what kind of keyboard? Like USB, PS/2 etc

Hi

I have an e-machines 420 which initially seemed to have a power issue i.e. it wouldn't power on. After checking all power connectors internally the machine would boot. BUT the ps2 mouse and keyboard would not respond, and the capslock light would flash repeatedly. Also tried USB mouse and keyboard on all usb ports with the exact same result.

After a lot of research, it appeared it could be either the motherboard, so a new Asrock P4i65g was purchased and installed - but the problem remained. So more research, and a new power supply was installed ... but hte problem still remains.

Please help - this is my retired parents pc, we've spent 80 already and who knows how many hours trying to resove this problem.

Any advice gratefully recieved.

I am having problems with a PS/2 keyboard and mouse not working. I can get them to work through a USB to PS/2 adapter but it doesn't work until Windows (XP) boots, so I can't get into the BIOS and I can't boot from CD.
It seems the PS/2 ports are fried, but using USB is only OK once Windows is up and running.
If I clear CMOS I can access the BIOS once but after changing to 'boot from CD' and 'save and exit' the keyboard stops working and I can't 'press any key to boot from CD'. Once the Windows screen comes up the mouse/keyboard works again. The motherboard is Abit KV-85 and I want to reinstall Windows after a bad virus attack.
Is there something in BIOS I have missed that will enable this USB mouse/keyboard to work?

Answer:USB mouse and keyboard not working

I currently have a working install on a second harddrive in this computer. I was wondering if there was any way I can access the other windows install from this one and use it to fix the problem? I guess this also means that the problem is due to a driver because the mouse and keyboard work on the new install.

I'm not sure which forum I should put this in but here it is...My son has an HP laptop. Suddenly the mouse pad and keyboard aren't working. When the computer is first turned on, the mouse pad will work. I can go online and anywhere with the mouse pad but as soon as I click a button on the keyboard the mouse stops working and the keyboard won't do anything at all. I can plug a mouse in to the usb port and it works fine but still no keyboard. Do I need new drivers? Maybe somehow they were uninstalled...but don't understand why the mousepad will work until I try the keyboard. Thanks in advance for any help! It's a Compaq nc6320 XP professional
