    Keyboard just stopped working


    My HP15 laptop keyboard just stopped working. I checked the device mgr, reloaded drivers and finally removed the drivers. Then I replaced the physical keyboard but still no keyboard action. A USB keyboard works fine but I need to fix the laptop keyboard. What can I do?

    keyboard stopped working

    Hi Zunair,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft community.

    1. What update are you referring to?

    I suggest you to pug in external keyboard and check if it works.

    Let’s troubleshoot the issue by referring to these methods and check the issue status:

    Method 1:

    Refer to the link to run the troubleshooter:

    Windows has a built-in troubleshooter to check and fix issues with Hardware and Devices. I would suggest you to run this troubleshooter to check if the issue is with your Devices.

    Refer these steps:

    • Press Windows key +X, select Control panel.
    • Change the view by option on the top right to Large icons.
    • Click on troubleshooting and click on the view all option on the left panel.
    • Run the Hardware and Devices.

    Method 2:

    Let’s try updating the driver for the mouse and keyboard and verify the results. Follow the steps:

    a) Press Windows and X key together and select Device Manager.

    b) Locate the Key board device icon. Right click on the driver icon.

    c) Select Update driver software.

    c) Select "browse my computer for a driver software".

    d) Select “Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer”.

    e) Select the driver option according your device model and installed.

    f) If this does not work, follow the steps from ‘a’ to ‘c’ and select “Search automatically for the updated driver”.

    g) Choose the same steps to update the driver for keyboard as well.

    Check if it resolves the issue. If not, I would suggest you to download and install the latest available drivers for the keyboard from manufacturer website of the laptop. If the issue still persists, install the driver in Windows Compatibility mode and check
    if that helps.

    Method 3: Compatibility mode

    Follow the steps below on how to install driver in compatibility mode:

    1. Download the driver from the manufacturer’s website and save it on your local disk.

    2. Right click on the setup file of the driver and select “Properties”.

    3. Select “Compatibility” Tab.

    4. Place a check mark next to “Run this program in Compatibility mode” and select operating system from the drop down list.

    5. Let the driver install and then check the functionality.

    Hope this helps. If the issue remains unresolved, please get back to us and we would be happy to

    help.


    Thanks.

  3. Keyboard stop working

    Hi Juan,

    There several reasons which can cause the keyboard to stop working, one is due to a possible driver issue. To effectively assist you with your concern, we'd like to ask the following:

    • Which Windows build version is running on your device? Type
      winver in the search box and press Enter to help you identify.
    • Have you made any changes on your device prior to your concern?
    • Are there keys on your keyboard that are not working/malfunctioning? If not, is it not working at all?
    • What are the troubleshooting steps that you've performed to resolve your concern?

    We'll appreciate if you can send us an update.

    Keyboard just stopped working

    Keyboard stops working after switching users...

    Hi,

    I have a very annoying issue that hast started to happen a few days ago. Basically when I switch users keyboard stops working.

    Steps:

    • Start PC
    • Log in as user A - Keyboard works fine
    • Switch User B - login screen is displayed and keypboard works to enter password
    • User B descktop is displayed
      • Keyboard does not work
      • Mouse works
      • Strange behaviour - the system seems to act like the Enter key is stuck down (which it isn't). If I open word to a new document (using mouse) it just inserts new lines into the document... like I am holding the enter key down
    I've tried a different keyboard and still the same issue.

    Any ideas?
