Keyboard stops working, computer constantly freezing

Q: Keyboard stops working, computer constantly freezing

My laptop is having some serious performance issues. The keyboard stops working, the mouse starts to wiggle across the screen, and it's incredibly slow. I've done a virus scan, but nothing comes back. I've had issues like this with other computers I own and it's always been a virus. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

So I have had this computer for around 5 months and have had little issue with it. All of the sudden my keyboard stopped working. I tried plugging in an external and that was working fine. So I tried to fix the internal one, but as I was looking up the solution my computer blue screened on me. I restarted and it came up with a menu that asked if I wanted to boot normally or etc etc. When I tried to hit enter the keyboard did not function so I had to restart again. Keyboard and computer was working fine. Then later the same thing happened. Internal Keyboard stopped working and soon after the computer blue screened. Next time it happened I closed out my programs before the crash and hit restart. It got stuck on the restart screen for a long time and I had to restart again. I have checked the harddrive, ram, and even did a fresh install of windows 10. This problem is still occuring and is very annoying. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling drivers, but it doesnt seem to work. Anybody have any ideas on what could be the problem?

Hi,

I have a feeling this may be a driver error, but I dont know.
A friend gave me a computer,

Os: Vista x86

Age of installation: not sure, its my friends. Might not have been reinstalled before

CPU: Athlon 64x2

System Manufacturer: DELL
Model No.: Inspiron 531

It works perfectly fine, apart from when I connect to the internet through 3 mobile broadband (3 Huawei E122). Once it connects, internet explorer launches. As soon as I begin using IE, the computer freezes, mouse will not move, keyboard will not work, then after 2 mins it blue screens. stop code is 0x77. I have tried to exit IE and use firefox instead, this works much better but it still bluescreens, just less frequently.

My friend brought it to a local shop who told him the usb header on the mobo is the problem and needs a new mobo and qouted him ?250 repair. However I dont think this is the problem as, no other usb device gives any trouble at all. And the mobile brodband dongle only crashes once it connects and the browser is launched.

I ran Norton antivirus, super anti spyware, malwarebytes antimalware, and RU Botted. All I picked up was a few malwares.

Been having problems with my keyboard freezing, at first I found that taking the battery out, holding esc for 30 seconds then setting the bios to saved defaults worked as a temporary fix, but as time has went on it has gotten worse, every time I manage to get the keyboard working again as soon as I play anything with sound ie YouTube or iTunes it freezes again and won't work until I do the bios reset, but if I don't play anything with sound it works fine.


Another method I tried was taking the battery out holding the power button for 30 seconds then the windows key and the letter b and resetting the bios to factory settings but even this has not worked. I'm totally stumped as to why this keeps happening as it is so out of the blue, I've also tried reinstalling the keyboard drivers but this did not work either. Would appreciate any help.

Edit: my problems are on a HP pavilion 15-e092sa

I have tried to reinstall IE8 & IE7 but IE7 doesn't install, and IE8 still has the same problem after I install it again. I ran a few scans before and took care of everything bad. Some other programs will still stop working (like, everyday). Watson Client, and Media TV thingy always stops working the minute I turn on the computer. What's the problem?

A:Keyboard stops working - USB external keyboard is fine

Hello Nysoh

On this virtual way nobody can say for sure what the problem is but if the internal keyboard is not working properly first step is keyboard replacement. If the problem still persists then troublemaker can be keyboard port or keyboard controller.

As far as I know BIOS has nothing to do with this issue.

I'm having an issue with my laptop keyboard not registering what keys I type. It's been starting when I'm using Microsoft Works. I've tried a few of the different Fix It- Microsoft ATS that seemed to apply, and that works for a little while, but then the problem returns when I'm using Microsoft Works. Once the problem happens, I can't use the keyboard again at all in any program until I reboot.

There was a Windows update yesterday that I installed that I thought could be causing this issue, but I was unable to find a System Restore point available to go to that was prior to the update to see if that helped.

Other things I tried are cleaning the registry, doing a scan/Deep Clean. I'm running low on ideas, anything else I can try? Below are my system specs:
Dell Inspiron 1525
Vista Home Premium 32bit
Intel Premium Dual CPU T2370 @ 1.73GHz
Memory 2 GB

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Welcome
Some suggestions
Stop using those reg cleaners, they may have even been the cause of the problem. If they were not, they may cause different problems in the future
Go to search, by start button, type device manager and look for any small yellow markers near the keybaord drivers. If there are, update.
If they are not, update to the most current from the company website (the company that made the keyboard)

Hi everyone, so I'm having a big problem. My keyboard was just fine few days ago, but now it stopped working, it's really annoying because I have to you desktop keyboard or what it is. Sometimes it works for a moment, but suddenly windows starts to show that usb device not recognized. Anyway, I searched for the solution for my problem many times. I tried to re-plug in my keyboard, shut down pc and turn on again, I also tried to search for drivers, but then it showed that there isn't any drivers, I tried to up to date them, but it's already up to date, I unistalled drivers and turned on pc for drivers to be installed again, but it showed that it failed. And ethernet controller, SM bus controller and universal serial bus (usb) controller are with yellow thing near to them, all the time (control panel>device manager>other devices). My other devices plugged in with usb work just fine, but keyboard doesnt do it at all. Can it be the problem or something else, or i just need to buy a new keyboard? Please help!

A:Keyboard always stops working

It sounds as though you are using a USB keyboard? It is not a wireless keyboard is it? Did you try plugging the keyboard into one of the other USB ports for which the devices are working instead of the same one which is not working? Did you run Windows Update to look for drivers? Do you have internet access on the machine still or is it not working due to the Ethernet controller problem? If you have access, and if Windows Update doesn't get you the drivers, you might try IOBIT driver booster free if you are having trouble installing drivers. It will look for missing drivers and will update them for you.

My ps/2 keyboard, every 3 or 4 days, simply stops working - no response at all in any application. I switched keyboards, but the problem persists. Reboopting works every time. The Device Manager shows it's working properly. As far as I can tell, no specific application is triggering the problem, although it usually occurs when I'm working in IE7. I have Windows XP.

Any thoughts?
 

A:Keyboard stops working

The only thing i could think of would be a port problem. You might try using a ps/2 -> USB adapter(if they exist <.<) to bypass the ps/2 port.

Recently, when I'm in a game (Call of Duty, Starcraft, etc) my keyboard just goes out. First, it happened with Call of Duty. About 2-3 mins into the game, it just stops working. I deleted my configuration for the game and then it worked, so I thought I fixed it. But then 10 mins ago in Starcraft, it did the same thing..

Specs 'n Stuff: The keyboard lights stay on, its default dell keyboards, non-usb, when this was happening I plugged in a different keyboard and it's still doing it with both - making me think its computer related.

My mouse is fine in game, so I can only control certain aspects of the game. Additionally, I can't use the keyboard in-game or out of game. But the problems starts when I'm in games.

Update: Ok, I had my computer on standby because I wanted to watch TV. I come back and the keyboard was working. I go in game, and immediately it stops working (Starcraft). I'm able to get out of game in SC, so I go to try it in Call of Duty and it doesn't work. There's no way to get out of game so I have to shutdown my computer with the power button. Once I do that, my computer boots without a display on the monitor. I remember this happening before when I shutdown my computer this way.. so I really have no idea what is wrong..

Update2:I let my computer sit, and it booted up fine on first try. But the keyboard isnt working on the desktop either now.. Device Manager says there's a keyboard there, but my light isn't ev... Read more

Hello,

I've AMD Athlon 3600+ on Asus A8N-E Motherboard with 1GB RAM.
Recently I've encountered a weird problem: from some unknown reason my keyboard sporadically stops working, as if was disconnected, although the Num Lock led shines. Unplug and replug don't help, only reboot.
Driver reinstall didn't help. Replacing the keyboard didn't help.
I've tried to find some pattern - at the beginning thought that it happens after awaking from sleep, but no, I've deactivated sleep mode at all and it happens just in the middle of my work.

Does anyone have an idea?

So i have windows ultimate 32 bit, and i noticed this problem. My keyboard randomly, doesnt matter what im doing, stops working. All i hear is a beep and then the keyboard is frozen. Sometimes i can go into on-screen keyboard and press a few buttons and my keyboard will unfreeze, but sometimes i have to restart or put the computer to sleep so it unfreezes. It's highly annoying, because sometimes it freezes after a few key presses, but sometimes it works no-problem.

A:Keyboard randomly stops working

Hello Jay and welcome to Seven Forums. Sorry to hear you're having these issues.

I understand that you already tried a different keyboard on your computer, but did you also try using the problem keyboard on a different computer? Have you tried using a different USB port? I found this previous Forum thread that has some additional suggestions. (Even though it talks about a mouse and keyboard issue, the suggestions are still valid for any USB device.)

Mouse and keyboard randomly stop working

When I start up my computer, my USB keyboard works fine. However, when it gets to the WinXP load screen, the LED on my keyboard goes off and I find that when I get to the log-in screen, my keyboard doesn't work. My mouse has no problems. This has happened before, but I think it was just by pure luck it started working again then (it started working when I unplugged my ethernet last time, but I think that was just a fluke as it doesn't work when I try it now). There is NOTHING wrong with my keyboard and moving it to different ports doesn't help. It works in safe mode and when I go into setup/boot menu at start-up. I'm trying to figure out what the real cause of this problem is, so any help would be greatly appreciated! I can't think of any similarities between what I was doing on my computer the last time this happened and this time, so I'm baffled. It's like it just decides to randomly stop working.

A:Keyboard stops working during boot and can't log in

Is your ethernet connection usb? How about the mouse? May be
a hitch somewhere in your usb, hitch/conflict. Get a ps2 converter
for your keyboard and see if it works, do the same for your mouse.
This will free up the usb resource. If your ethernet is usb I would
change that to a standard nic card or use the onboard cat5 ethernet
connection. Imho...

I've already been on a bunch of other threads relating to this issue and I'm really starting to panic.
My laptop is a HP running Windows 7 (I don't know how old it is, it was my brother's before he upgraded and gave it to me). Recently (as in a couple days ago) my keyboard would randomly start cutting out, all keys refusing to work. My mouse would still function
fine (but it's a USB mouse since the trackpad stopped working about a year ago). On the first day I restarted it and it worked for the rest of the day. On the second day it happened again after the first restart, but worked for the rest of the day on the second
restart. On the third day I restarted after uninstalling keyboard drivers, Windows automatically reinstalled when it came back on and it worked the rest of the day. HOWEVER, today, the fourth day, it stopped working very quickly and I had to restart again,
trying the driver fix again.
It always crashes at some point after I log in (so it's never prevented me from typing in my password to log in or anything). Restarting has been working as a temporary fix every time, but only temporary. I have no idea what to do and have no access to a
USB keyboard right now.

I just converted to Vista Enterprise with and IBM laptop and docking station. I keep losing my external IBM keyboard, 3 or 4 times a day. If I pull out the USB plug and put it back in to reset it my keyboard starts working again.

I've updated the latest driver on the IBM website but still have the problem.

Anyone seen anything like this?

A:Keyboard intermittently stops working

It is probably a hardware issue, especially if you see the same problem when the machine is booted to safe mode and left to run overnight.

Does it make a difference if you pull out all other USB devices and run for 24h that way?

What about if the external keyboard is plugged into a USB socket on the laptop itself instead of the docking station?

I bought a T440s last week. The keyboard stops working almost every half an hour!!! Some keys still respond when some fault occurs, but not doing what it is supposed to do. After restarting, it seems to be working but normally won't last for longer than 1 hour. I have called customer support and upgraded to latest keyboard driver as advised, but nothing improves. Please advise, thanks.

A:T440s keyboard stops working

Hi,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m sorry to hear that a few keys of your Lenovo ThinkPad T440s is not working properly.
 
Check if the keys are working in different applications. Some keys such as the function keys F1 through F12 will not work with every program. An easy way to test this is to open notepad or other word processing program and trying the key. Try getting into safe mode and see if the keys work. Remove the key from the keyboard and clean it. In some situations dirt, hair, dust, etc. can obstruct keys causing them not to work.
 
Please try to get into BIOS mode and see if the keyboard is working there.
 
1. If you are able to use the keyboard in BIOS, it could be a software issue. I would recommend in that case to do a System Restore which will revert the settings in your system to a previous time.
 
2. If keyboard doesn?t respond in BIOS as well, it probably indicates a faulty keyboard. I strongly suggest you to contact our technical support for assistance.
 
Best Regards,
Mithun.

He has already tried going into the Device Manager, deleting the keyboard and rebooting so the drivers are reinstalled. He’s also tried both PS/2 and USB keyboards with the same result. He is running the XP with the latest updates and as well as up-to-date antivirus and antispyware. The OnScreen Keyboard works ok. Also (maybe unrelated), he a few days after the keyboard problem popped up, he started getting this diagnostic: `Microsoft Office Outlook - Error in registry for extension "exchange extensions?" The syntax or format of the registry entry is incorrect. Check the registry settings to compare the registry for this extension to other extensions in the registry.` I'm thinking this is unrelated. What can he do about the keyboard problem?

Thanks in advance!

Hi.
I have encountered a weird problem that I cant seem to find a solution too.

My install of windows is messed up, it still works just to much has been installed and installed. So I backed everything up I needed and dropped in an XP Cd.

When I start up I get the normal "Press any key to boot from CDrom..." except the keyboard stops working at this point. It only stops working while it says this message. It then times out and the system boots up as normal.

Tried 3 different keyboards; 2 USB and 1 PS2. They all work fine in windows, they all work and get me in to the BIOS. The Caps lock LED on all 3 also stops working when I have the "press any key to boot from CDrom" on screen.

If I boot off a CD that does not have the "Press any key to boot from CDrom" it will boot off that CD.

As a side issue I an SATA DVD drive (A lite-on DVDRW LH-20A1S (9L08)) I can not boot off this DVD drive, BIOS set to boot off it. I have dropped in some older DVD drives so I can boot off the disk. Same issue with all three of them.

The motherboard is a Foxconn C51XEM2AA

Does anyone know a solution or work around?

Thank you in advance for any help that can be offered.

A:Keyboard stops working when booting of a CD

not sure what is causing your different keybaords from working and yoru DVD drives not working....sounds like a bad Motherboard, the eide controllers for the DVD or if SATA then bad SATA controllers..
if your pc is still functional with the old CP load...,,,just trya nd clean it out of as much as you can to see if you can improve perforamcne

For the past couple of days my keyboard starts to go crazy after about 2 hours worth of use. It will not let me type. And, if I hit a letter it will do something else that it shouldn't. For instance, if I hit the "letter" key it opens the file/save as.

I read a very old post here and tried to do what that said. I changed my batteries, cleaned the keyboard, and even used a different keyboard that isn't wireless. The very same thing happens no matter which keyboard I use.

Sometimes if I wait a few minutes and reboot it is fine again (like right now). This just started happening. Do you have any advice what might be causing this?

By the way, my mouse works fine.

Thanks for your help.

I suggest posting on one of the sites that have some good malware removal folks, like:

whatthetech.com
geekstogo.com
spybot.info

You could try running Malware Bytes Anti Malware (free version) and see if it finds anything. Download it on another computer. Boot to Safe Mode with Networking then install it on this computer if necessary. Let it update then do a Quick Scan, see what it finds. Let it fix everything.

Also do a scan with your installed anti-virus software (in Safe Mode if it allows it). If no help then go with one of the above sites. They are all busy so it may take a day or two before they can get to you.

Hey CommunityI encountered a rather strange problem yesterday when my wife turned on her Lenovo we bought a month ago. It is possible to enter the PIN at the Win10 startup page, but as soon as we enter Windows, no(!) key works. Neither Keypad nor Keyboard.We tried:- accessing the Bios, which works and in which the Keyboard works normally- deleting the Keyboard PS/2 Driver from the Hardware Setting Menue, which results in a re-installation of this driver but still the error remains- plugging in a USB keyboard which interestingly receives power and the volume buttons works, but here the same, the keys do not function (and this one also does not work at the windows pin screen).- waited until Win10 installed all updates, even the anniversary update, but still nothing changed (was my last hope. D'oh!). Right now I'm quite lost and don't see why things do not work. Really need some help here...Thank you in advance BTW: It's a  Lenovo B50-80 80EW0521GE as far as I understand it.

hey all,

in past I did have this problem with Windows 7, and now that I came back (was on XP Sp3), they annoying me again.

I have a DELL Vostro 1510. Sometimes, after I turn on the computer and it loads my desktop, the keyboard doesn't work. The weird thing is that the media keys are working fine all the time, however all the letters, caps lock, num lock, F1-F12... well, every single key simply doesn't respond.

So I go and check it on the "device manager", and it shows I have a keyboard installed. I scan for hardware changes... and no changes detected... The driver is there, the hardware is perfect (I never had these issues while on XP, and I was with 7 on past, did have these problems, then did migrate to XP, and now back to 7 and having it again).

I know how to solve it... I simply need to go to the device manager, click on uninstall and then "scan hardware for changes" and it comes back to life. If that doesn't work, just need to reboot and Windows 7 install the driver for me (after uninstalling it, of course).

The annoying thing is that I don't want to do those steps... I want it to keep always working... And this is just not normal, so for sure there is some cause.

DELL doesn't offer drivers for notebook keyboard on their website, at least not for my model, because it's simply a default one... So the default driver should handle it.

How can I debug it? There must be anything causing these random issues.

A:When i log off my laptop the keyboard stops working

That's extremely odd behavior. Did this problem happen suddenly? Do you recall what you did prior to it happening (like opening an e-mail attachment or visiting a new website)? First, before any other troubleshooting, make sure your anti-virus is up to date and run a malware scan (e.g. MalwareBytes). If it's not a virus, it may be due to a fault with the keyboard driver. Perhaps you have an older laptop and a recent Windows update created a conflict? You could also try going to the Device Manager, select your keyboard, and then check to see if there's a driver update.

The BSOD is a random occurrence. There doesn't seem to be any thing specific that triggers the BSOD. The only indication is that my keyboard stops working, as in that it wont type anything or accept any kind of input. I have a had BSODs happen to after being on of only a couple of hour to being on all day. Most days there isn't an issue. There doesn't seem to be a program, that I can tell, that causes the crash. I have had BSODs happen when I have only had Chrome running to multiple applications running. I have a Razer Lycosa keyboard, it is up to date with drivers and firmware. When I notice my keyboard stops working, if I try to restart or shut down my computer it starts to shut down but Blue screens before it can, otherwise it will eventually Blue screen after a few minutes.

Here is the Windows System log that reports the dump:
The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x0000001e (0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000). A dump was saved in: C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP. Report Id: 071413-15444-01.

Hey,

I have an IBM R52, lately I've been having this really annoying problem!

The keyboard and touchpad stop working - right now the keyboard is still working but the touchpad is unresponsive. Suspending the system gets the keyboard working occasionally (this is faster than restarting), however its usually necessary to restart the computer.

I can work around the mouse by plugging a USB mouse in, but I dont have another keyboard.

Any advice? Im thinking perhaps a driver reinstall or theres a conflict somewhere?

Thanks

Hi DeltaStrikeZeta and welcome to TSF !

So the same keyboard works with another installation of XP on the same computer ?

Does another keyboard work better ? Does a usb keyboard work ?

Were there some updates pending to be installed when you turned the computer off ? Had you installed anything new during the last session ?

Try booting on the installation that doesn't work and repeatedly pressing the F8 key. Can you get to the advanced options menu ? If so try "last known good configuration" and see if it helps.

Does your XP pro install CD have SP2 integrated ?

The keyboard runs fine for a little while then it locks up.  I am honestly surprised its working right now.  I've tried to troubleshoot it with information I've found online with no luck.  I am trying to avoid a system restore/factory reset.  I have tried turning off the computer, unplugging the a/c cable, removing the battery, holding the power button for 20seconds, reassembling and rebooting.  No luck.  I've made sure neither sticky keys nor filter keys are on.  I have tried plenty of options and none seem to work.  Please help.

I upgraded my parents' computer a few months ago and installed Win7. Ever since then, they've been having problems w/ the keyboard randomly not working after the computer is rebooted or woken from sleep. I've tried 2 different PS2 keyboards and a USB unit, but the problem persists. Could it be a driver issue, even though it happens on 2 different types of ports?

Hi Staalek1 , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
Is this something that would happen as soon as you log in within Windows? 
How about using the onscreen keyboard or using and external USB keyboard?
 
If a recent windows update just happened before this event , a system restore to a previous working date may help . Proceed to disable automatic drivers updates from Windows so it would hold back any unexpected driver change in the future as this usually happens on Windows update related cases. 
 
Update us how this goes.

Hi thelastbonbona,

It may not be an issue with the keyboard at all. You may try using a good-known keyboard with the system, if available; will help you to isolate the keyboard as the possible root cause. Alternatively, you may use this keyboard with another system to see if the issue duplicates.

If no extra computer/keyboard is available, you may check the 'keyboard/system' performance in 'Safe mode'. It is a diagnostic mode and may help us isolate if a 'program' is causing interference.

Do reply with the findings; will take it forward from there.

It boots up fine.  I can log onto Windows fine.  The mouse works fine.  But, immediately after logging inot Windows, the keyboard totally stops responding. Devices are all fine.  Nothing wierd in BIOS. I did a system refresh.  No difference.  I've tried three different keyboards and all of the USB ports.  Any ideas?  Thanks.

A:keyboard stops working after bootup and login

Greetings, Wow, this is a very unusual scenario! Do you recall anything unusual happening prior to the symptom or did you install a new driver or low level software. Can you navigate "Setup", BIOS, using any or all of the keyboards? I guess you've tried all of the keyboards in all USB ports, including the port where the mouse successfully works? Does the mouse work using the USB ports where the keyboards fail? Have you tried the keyboards on a different PC? Do other USB devices work in the ports where the keyboards fail? You have three possible points of failure: 1. Motherboard, 2. Device (keyboard), 3. Operating System. If you can use the keyboard to navigate BIOS and you can use the keyboard to sign in to Windows, then you have a possible operating system problem. Run a Check Disk. Try a System Restore. Pick a restore point prior to the problem. Cheers!

Hello all! I write to you today from an external keyboard placed on top of my laptop, because my keyboard stopped working last night, first by losing an e key, than a r key, and then, when I restarted the laptop, thinking it would be solved by doing so, the entire keyboard would not work past a certain point in windows boot. It does work in BIOS and I can even watch caps lock light up and go off and turn the backlight on and off.Things to note1) The last software change was 2 days before this happened. It was an update to Windows 10. which is my OS.2) My system restore points will not work due to an issue with AppXstaging (not sure if solvable).3)There are two HID compliant devices in my keyboard section on device manager. and a ps2 compatabile keyboard (which is the one I'm typing on right now) 4) I emphasize that the keyboard DOES WORK in BIOS and during boot, up until the point I can see my windows icon, and Cortana. Things I've tried1) sfc scannow comes back with there being issues it couldn't fix as well as ones it fixed2) chkdsk enjoyed scanning my computer for 5 hours last night and fixing some issues3) I do have an event viewer full of errors regarding filter manager and storage, but nothing I could see with the keyboard.4) Black majik5) I have uninstalled so many devices from device manager to let them install that my mouse hands hurt.

Hi Rose,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums.
 
About the keyboard issue I am not sure. I have heard that there is another Patch update for Win 10 that has been released, you may want to check and install that in Windows Update functionality.
 
Method 1:
Try to remove keyboard device via device manager (right click my computer > manage > device management > keyboards > find your keyboard > right click and select remove > then restart your computer)
 
Method 2:
If the keyboard is working fine on the login screen and then suddenly stops functioning when you get to the desktop / metro screen then the problem might be with the Filter Keys - similar to this thread.
Try to turn off Filter Keys by going to Control Panel > Ease of Access > Ease of Access Center > Make the keyboard easier to use > uncheck Turn on Filter Keys then hit apply.
Link to picture
If same problem, you may want to consider doing a clean windows.
 
Method 3:
If it doesn't work, you may need to replace the keyboard, contact Lenovo service centres and ask for replacement for free if you have valid warranty.
 
Let us know how you get on.

hello, i have a logitech G15 gaming keyboard, and the day before yesterday, i uninstalled a few things, like .net framework 1, i didnt think i needed it, also i uninstalled the game i play for a bit called MapleStory.

the next morning i started the computer to find that my keyboard key didnt work, i tried to fix it by plugging into another usb port, no success, after that i tried to try it on my other older computer, that has no usb (had to use a adapter) and the keyboard wasnt working with that either, i assumed it didn't work with adapters.

anyways, i got an old keboard (non usb), and turned off the computer, pluged it in, and it worked, i tried to find info on the logitech website and no sucess.

after all of that, i did a system restore, and low and behold, the logitech keyboard worked.

today i didnt uninstall the MapleStory, i just went into the program file, and deleted it that way, turned off the computer, and same problem accrued again, i did the system restore, and im using the keyboard now..

With Win 10, sometimes when I'm typing an email reply with Live Mail the keyboard stops working and I hear a beeping sound. I can get it to stop by going to WordPad and type a few letters, then the beeping stops and I can go back to Live Mail and finish typing my email reply. Other times the keyboard loses 3 or 4 strokes and sometimes I hear 1 beep when that happens.

You can see for a very few short seconds the keyboard will operate during initial boot process however during the boot process it disables. Now all of the time. Is there a Bios setting anyone knows to turn on permanently? I really hate the tablet mode as it is and certainly can live without it.

I have a annoying problem with my keyboard. When I start working on a project or playing a game after a while my keyboard stops working and can't use it anymore. It is fixed when I restart my pc with the on/off button ( Closing my pc with the shutdown or restarting button does not work. When I force my pc to shutdown with the on/off button it makes a really weird noice. I would like to fix this problem it really annoys me.

Hi Guys!

I have recently assembled a pc!

My system:
Intel Processor i3 3.4GHZ 3240 ( I bought this one new with 8 months warranty remaining)
Mother board Asus h61m-K (Its also new with 8 months warranty remaining)
Ram DDR3 4GB (Used)
Power supply 420W (Used)

After a few days use the Pc used to restart after 5 to 6 hours of working and then everything go again to normal for another 5 hours! I also got the blue screen error of windows a few times!

I figured out that the fan speed of CPU was at normal, I changed it to turbo level ,after that the restarting stopped for a few days but recently it started again randomly now there is no trend it happens randomly. Lately my mouse and keyboard start freezing with numlock light and the laser light of mouse turning off: I plugged them out to a different usb ports but off no use, I have to force restart the pc to make it Normal functioning again!
I am using Windows 7 64 bit, I have changed the windows many time but off no use.Can anyone tell me what is likely to be the problem? I think there is a problem with the supply or the motherboard but dont know how to check it??

Thanks in Advance!

The prepackaged USB keyboard that came with my Y700-34ISH has started to fail about once every 1-2 weeks.  It stops becoming responsive in the middle of the day.  If I unplug it it and plug it into another USB port it occasionally will start to work again. Most of the time I have to shut down the computer and reboot it to make it work--which may or may not always work.  A Windows 10 popup will tell me that it doesn't recognize the USB peripheral after it fails.  Any ideas?   On a side note, when I went to schedule a Call Back on Lenovo.com/contacts nothing happens after I type in my Serial Number and click Call Back.  It takes me to a screen that says Callback is not available for my product, but when I called Customer Support they told me to use Call Back.....  So I turned here. Thanks.

Hello, so I've had this laptop now for a week and I'm seriously considering returning it since I have 30 days. Every device has its quirks but some are harder to overlook than others.Twice now when playing games my laptop* keyboard has completely stopped responding. No keys or combinations of keys work.The game doesn't freeze and I still have mouse/touchpad control. Both times I'm able to close out of the game and hit restart, where it just hangs for several minutes saying "restarting...", so I have to hard shut down. Upon rebooting, everything seems fine. BIOS Version: LENOVO CDCN35WW, 3/29/2016*haven't tested this with external keyboard yet Digging through the event view I've found this in both cases: ?? Thank you so much

Sorry for grammar,writing on on screen keyboard.

For a few days now my keyboard will randomly stop working, and the key... lights would go crazy, blinking a 1000 times.
After some time the mouse will also stop working,but so far its good since i unpluged the keyboard.

Also whenever i move the mouse the lights would start blinking, weird. I had the same problem a few months ago but it went away after i started using a different set of mouse+keyboard.

This pc is like 7 years old and could it be that the mobo is dying, or the slots are dying.'?

If i am playing a game my character will move on its own,also when i move the key... cable it will start working again for a few seconds.
Tried inserting a different board when it stops working but it does not help.

It's getting a little tiring that every new piece of hardware we get has one issue or another.
One of our departments just got in a couple of Precision 7510 laptops as replacements for the M4800 and I was testing the drivers with our SCCM environment. When trying to PXE boot the system it works fine until I get to the point where I have to hit F12 to actually launch the boot.wim then it fails as if I didn't touch the keyboard. 
Updated the BIOS to the latest, no difference. Connected a USB keyboard to it and it worked just fine. Has anyone else seen this issue?

Firstly, i want to say that i've seen many topics related to this problem on forums , but didn't find the solution.The keyboard randombly freezes when playing, problem didn't occur while browsing or doing random stuff.In order to make it work again, it requires to push the power button for restarting PC, because after restarting it through START/POWER/RESTART i get that BIOS or whatever it's called table about starting in safe mode, but i can't click on it because keyboard still doesn't work. I've tried updating KB drivers, but it says it's up to date, tried unistalling them on safe mode.WIN 10

Hi @ritz11 Welcome to the HP Support Forums, I hope you enjoy your experience! To help you get the most out of the HP Forums I would like to direct your attention to the HP Forums Guide First Time Here? Learn How to Post and More. I saw your post regarding the keyboard becoming unresponsive at time and there are a few things that we can look at. Start by doing a Hard Reset as I have seen this resolve other odd keyboard issues. If that doesn't work look at uninstalling the keyboard driver. Go to your Device Manager and expand Keyboards and then right click the keyboard there and select Uninstall. Then restart the notebook and Windows will automatically reinstall the driver.

Hi, Tech Guy Forums.
A few minutes ago I had to shut down my computer impropery(by holding down the power button) because my computer froze after trying to logging off one of my accounts.(i hope this doenst mean anything)

So I turned my computer back on my pressing the power button again and when I got to the windows welcome login screen I could not type in my password!
My keyboard is not broken, the lights are on, and it was working fine before I had to shut down my computer . I can still enter the boot setup and the keys work in there. It's just when I get to windows login screen it stops working.
I have tried restarting my computer many times that doesn't work. I tried putting my keyboard usb into all the other slots and that doesn't work either.
Help! Is this a virus?
 

A:Keyboard stops working at Windows Login Screen! Help.

While the computer is booting up, try tapping the F8 key. See if the windows advanced options menu, appears. Try selecting "Last known good configuration". Otherwise you can try safemode. If you are able to use the keyboard in safemode, then I would uninstall the keyboard drivers, and let windows reinstall it upon normal bootup.

Hey, my friend's laptop (compaq Presario) is being very buggy. On the occasional successful boot, either the keyboard or the mouse wont work (generally one or the other). One time the keyboard didn't work and we couldn't log in, so we hibernated and unhibernated and bam, the keyboard started working. I ran the online activescan and it detected 31 threats, but only cleaned up the tracking cookies (about 13ish of them).
Is there another scanner somebody would recommend that would find the rest of the threats and delete them? Before running activescan I ran spybot S&D and it only found about 12 tracking cookies.

Please help!

Good evening,I've purchased a Lenovo ideapad 700 (a pretty high performance laptop) almost one month ago and in this month i've noticed a very annoying issue, the keyboard stops working randomly.In one month this happened 6-7 times, no one of  the keys responds and the only way is to Hard shut down pressing the power button for 10 seconds, then it returns back to normal.Fact is, i use this pc also for gaming and i press keys pretty fast, is there a combination of keys that shut down the keyboard completely?  Is the driver outdated/corrupted? Am i pressing keys faster than processor's response time?Thanks if everyone want to reply, btw i'm really considering the possibility to return the product if the issue is not resolved.

A:Computer constantly freezing

Hi Shadowraider and welcome to TSF

Sorry for the delay in getting to you, the forum has been really busy lately and all our helpers are volunteers

There is no set average for running processes as these will depend on the PC and the applications installed. They will constantly increase/decrease while the computer is running, as programs (including background processes) are opened/closed. e.g. I have 42 processes running with an open browser and notepad opened. The rest are system processes, anti-virus program, firewall, anti-spyware and a few programs I chose to run at startup. Some users will tweak the startups to get down to about 25 processes but that's usually not needed unless your computer is really slow to boot up or slow at opening programs or responding to user input.

I don't see any malware in your log but I will take a further look to make sure, however..........

I notice that you have more than one anti-virus programs on your machine (AVG & Symantec). That's not a good idea!!

This messes up the machine pretty badly. Alike firewalls, anti-virus programs have conflicts co-existing with each other & may produce undesirable results. Please uninstall ALL leaving only one of them.

ALL the antivirus programs must be removed via add/remove program.
For any program that doesn't have an add/remove entry, you will have to do this:re-install the program -> reboot -> uninstall## Do NOT proceed with the rest of the fix until you have resolved t... Read more

Hello. I am having a very difficult time using my laptop. Dell Inspiron 6400.
About 1 mos ago my computer started to freeze up whenever I opened Mozilla, or up to the tool bar to change any options. The freezing would last about 30 seconds, after which things ran normal

I deleted Mozilla and started to use explorer, the problem surfaced there as well. I finally did a "dell restore" that solved the problem for a few days, but then the problems started again.

I have run memory check and the full dell diagnostics and everything comes up okay.

Now every time I open explorer up, my computer freezes for aprox 30 seconds. Also when the computer first loads up, it also freezes for aprox 30 seconds.

I did spybot, adaware, ccleaner and the trendmicro virus scan.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

This issue just started yesterday morning. I woke up yesterday morning to find the computers monitor (which went into hibernation) and the CPU still running (apparently soeone other than myself was on the computer and left it on overnight). I should also mention that the internet was still running as well (internet provided by my cable company)

Because the computer was unresponsive, I had to manually shut it down and turn it back own. It booted up like it normally should, but then 15 minutes after starting it up (and while I was on the internet), it froze. The mouse would not respond, ctrl-alt-delete wouldnt work either, so again I had to manually shut it down.

However, when I tryed to start the computer again, my monitor would display a message such as "No Input Signal" and 5 seconds later would go to sleep. So I was forced to manually shut it down again. I would get this same error message 5 or 6 times before the hp splash screen would come up and load like it normally should. However, the computer would only last between 5-15 minutes before freezing up again.

Once I manually shut it down for the 10th time and turned it back on again, I got an error message about some DLL's were corrupted or missing which prevented Windows XP from loading normally. So I did a PC recovery, and got XP to run again, but the computer is still freezing.

I'm worried that the constant freezing and me having to manually shut it down would be causing more problems. I actual... Read more

My computer's problem is that all the programs and everything that's running suddenly freezes (programs, mouse, music, etc.) from time to time. Especially when I'm watching videos, usually on fullscreen, or on particular websites such as Twitter or those that take a while to load, are sluggish when scrolling through or have a lot of content. After it freezes, I would have no choice but to restart the computer. I tried formatting my computer, and installing the system on a new hard drive with plenty of space. I also cleaned out the dust from the CPU to make sure it's not over-heating, used a few programs and cleaned out the registry, deleted unused files and programs but nothing seems to work, the computer still freezes pretty often. After I formatted the computer, it started freezing less often and the blue screen where Disk Checking occurs stopped appearing whenever I had to restart my computer. Which means it helped a little bit to format the computer, but did not solve my problem. Hope you can help!

Hi:
 
For the last few weeks my computer has been freezing up on me constantly and I've had to restart it to get things back to "normal". 
 
I know that various things cause your computer to freeze and thought that maybe that the fact that I haven't done a defrag in a while could be the problem.  I defragged last night and unfortunately, that didn't resolve my problem.
 
I've did a full scan with Dr. Web Cureit(took around 12 hours) back in late August and a few things were found which I deleted.  Then about a week or so ago I did a full scan with Malwarebytes and it found a few things and I thought that was that. I don't know what else to do.
 
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 I've did a full scan with Dr. Web Cureit(took around 12 hours) back in late August and a few things were found which I deleted.  Then about a week or so ago I did a full scan with Malwarebytes and it found a few things and I thought that was that. I should also mention that there have been these error messages popping up for Norton every few days "Symantec Service Framework encountered a problem and needed to close".  When I typed in a search I came up with the following website http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=TECH178798
I didn't install anything as I wasn't sure that I should.

HELPPPP! For the past three days I have been experiencing random freezes constantly!!! I have a Sony Viao Notebook with Windows XP. I have performed every check I can think of, but I'm not all that computer literate. I will be typing, sometimes in outlook, sometimes in WP, and the cursor freezes in space and my only option is to turn off the system. Even control, alt, delete to stop the process will not work. What's going on? I need help. I have too many projects to suffer this annoying bugaboo!

Thanks

Get hold of a memory test, put on bootable floppy and test your RAM.

I have a Dell Inspirion Laptop that has begun freezing up. I spoke with someone that builds computers and he told me to run msconfig, which I did. I wasn't sure what to do once I got to that screen so I didn't change anything. Now, I can't get online and not much of anything will open.
Should I just re-install XP or use this laptop for a boat anchor?
