  1. Keyboard


    I have a Microsoft surface book 2. Recently I had an issue regarding my SD card reader not working correctly, and so I messed around with drivers, resulting in my keyboard being unresponsive, with exception of the trackpad, ports, and most of the buttons on the top row of keys. All other keys, including any key beneath the top row of function keys is unresponsive. It will not type anything. I redownloaded firmware and updates on the site, but that didn't fix the keyboard. I've updated drivers, I've restarted the computer multiple times, I've detached and retached, and reinstalled drivers multiple times. I don't know what to do. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

    :)

    Hi David,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I suggest you to check if the issue persists when you connect another keyboard to your system.

    If the issue is with the keyboard, then suggest you to update the keyboard drivers by following the steps below.


    • Press Windows key + X and select
      Device Manager
      from the list.

    • Expand ‘Keyboard’ from the list.

    • Right click on the driver and select ‘update driver software’ and follow the prompts.

    Hope the information is helpful.
