    Windows 10 - Keyboard randomly stops working and error sound plays


    Using a Dell Precision 5750 laptop. Keyboard is attached to laptop.Every so often, while typing on my keyboard, the typing stops and the windows error noise plays the "ding". I have to reclick into the window I'm typing again to resume typing. This happens pretty randomly, somewhere between 15-30 characters I type it'll occur. This error only ever occurs when typing with the keyboard. I can use the mouse/cursor normally. This also happens when I connect an external keyboard. Tried:safe mode bootrestartrestore to a previous point

    :)

    Keyboard/touchpad stop working randomly


    This has happened a lot since my upgrade to Windows 10, and it's really starting to get on my nerves. Seemingly randomly, my keyboard will stop responding to what I type, and my touchpad completely stops as well (no, I did not accidentally click to disable it). These problems will never resolve themselves on their own, but as soon as I reset the computer everything works again - to me, that sounded like a driver crash, but nope! I checked the driver menu and it told me everything was running just fine. What's even more strange is that I have the backlight keyboard enabled so that when I type, it lights up. And strangely, the keys still light up when I press them, so I know it's registering my typing SOME how.

    You would also think that this would be a software problem since it fixes immediately upon reset, but I've noticed that this issue seems to crop up a lot right after I have moved my computer... I'm lost and I've scoured the internet for clues, but no one else seems to have this problem. Please help!

    In order to possibly do testing on what is causing this (via suggestions hopefully, I've tried everything I can think of) I am purposely not resetting my computer (thankfully this is a touch screen, but this on-screen keyboard typing is obnoxious). Currently, both keyboard and touchpad don't work, but a usb mouse I use does (the computer is also set so that using the usb mouse does not disable the touchpad).

    Keyboard randomly stopped working

    My built in laptop keyboard stopped working after the computer randomly turned off by itself.

    (Laptop is a Lenovo Ideapad).

    I have tried:

    Uninstalling drivers and scanning for hardware changes to reinstall them.

    Entering safe mode (computer wouldn’t even start in safe mode).

    Entering the BIOS to see if there were any changes I could make there (there weren’t).

    Now I am getting Code 19 and Code 12 errors for the keyboard in Device Manager.

    I’ve tried all troubleshooting steps on many websites, and nothing works.

    External keyboards work when I plug them in.

    Please help!!

    Sound Randomly Turns Off

    I'm having a problem where the sound in my Win 10 computer randomly stops and then randomly goes back on. When it happens, it basically pauses anything that plays sound. When I try to click play nothing happens and everything can randomly comes back on,
    sometimes taking 15 mins. Its a huge problem so if anyone has an idea, im open to suggestions.

    Thanks for you help!
