My Keyboard doesn't work, and the computer turns on but doesn't start.

Q: My Keyboard doesn't work, and the computer turns on but doesn't start.

For the last month or so, every time I log off my account, the keyboard does not register at the Windows Log In screen. This makes it so I have to restart the computer and then it works fine.
There are three accounts on the computer, the casing has been half removed for the last 3 months, a DVD burner and driver recently installed 3 months ago and I am using a wireless off brand USB keyboard and mouse.
OS: Windows Xp Home Edition 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3
As for the second part, the computer requires several restarts to boot up, sometimes up to twenty minutes of turning on and off to boot up. Only started doing this a week ago.

Preferred Solution: My Keyboard doesn't work, and the computer turns on but doesn't start.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

It sounds like something is wrong with your Windows XP drivers. Something like that happened to me while building my computer, and when I boot up the keyboard did not work because my copy of windows XP was bad. You could try reinstalling windows XP, and It might work better, but I dont have a definite answer to your problem.

hi, I know there are many in the forum who have the same problem as mine. 
my computer was running fine last friday. I tried to start it on saturday, it says it can't startup and need to repair startup. I did run the repair but still can't startup. I tried to use system restore to earlier dates, it still can't startup. The computer has trojan virus before and I tried the anti-malware from internet to kill them. seems that it create more problem for my PC. I have some important files in the computer that I wish I have archived. 
wonder if any one can help. thx in advance.

I have an ASUS notebook running windows 7 64-bit. I am using the QuietOffice power profile, however the screensaver won't kick in no matter what I do, and the display does not turn off even though I set it to be after 5-minutes of inactivity. I don't know if there is something running in the background... I have turned off my usb wireless mouse, and nothing....

Any ideas?


A:HELP: power option doesn't work - screen saver doesn't start!

This is another case of factory bloatware interfering - in this case a useless factory utility overriding Win7's superior built-in version.

Googling the Quiet Office feature of Asus there are multiple reported problems. Best to default to the Win7 built-in Power Options in Control Panel. Set up a Balanced Plan unless you're a gamer then use High Performance.

Here are other tips for cleaning up factory bloatware

I have a 4y old Sony VAIO (VGN-NS11J) that stopped working today morning after making a whirring noise

Repeated attempts to restart failed and after many attempts, I managed to get to the Startup Repair mode - after a long time, startup repair says it failed to automatically repair the problem

I managed to run system restore but after a while I got the following message: "System restore failed due to an unspecified error. The disk strucgture is corrupted and unreadable (0X80070571)

My laptop did not come with a Windows Vista CD/Recovery disk

My first priority is to recover a few files in the laptop - if I am able to do this, then I dont mind junking the laptop

Since this is an old laptop, I would prefer not to use an expensive professional to recover the data

Any help/suggestions would be much appreciated!

A:Speakers beeping, keyboard doesn't work, and computer restarts

Well, my computer is done...

So when I tried to start it up, i plugged the keyboard into the same port as my mouse. I thought it might work since the mouse still worked. Well, it didn't. It went into the system recovery and searched for problems. It restarted the computer and loaded after the initial boot screen (del bios F9 boot setup), it just went to a green box and a N with a ~, like what would be in PINATA, right next to it. It fails to boot past that. I guess i have to go get it looked at later. By the way, I'm in Korea working for the stupid army. The barracks have US plugs and everything. Well, props to anyone who can figure this out before I format my hard drive. It is a lot of data, but luckily I have an external hard drive (2Tb) to back up my stuff. I just don't want to have to go through the trouble of formatting the disks(2 x 500Gb).

Hello guys,

Does anyone know how to fix the "Computer" Link in the Start Menu? When I click on it nothing happens and when I try and click properties on it, it brings up this screen instead of Explorer:

A:Computer Link in Start Menu Doesn't Work.

That is the proper screen you get when you click properties.

You could try running a system file check.

In an elevated command prompt type sfc /scannow

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

In the meantime, just type co in search, then choose computer from the list.

Well the first thing you should try is to Run System Restore to before all of these problems started or to when you first installed Windows 10.
Then try to download Firefox from there website
Third thing is I would recommend to get rid of Avast it is low end and could be allowing virus I recommend ether McAfee or Norton Security.

Those are some things to think about
but it is all up to you when making your final decision

After a power outage my brothers keyboard quit working. He has a desk top computer only one year old. He uses XP. We have rebooted several times. When booting up before Windows opens DOS says it can not find the keyboard.

We made sure the keyboard is plugged in properly (It is not USB connected). We tried another working keyboard, which also didn't work. In Windows we tried adding new hardware. The keyboard is not showing up in the hardware list.

Everything worked fine until the power outage. The computer was in the sleep mode at the time. The mouse continues to work fine and everything else works like it should.

Hey Guys!! This is my first post, so we'll see how it goes.
So, here's the problem: I used the registry backup program on my computer to reverse some changes I had made to my system. Now, the keyboard doesn't work. It works when Windows boots (when Windows says "Press F8 for advanced startup options) but it doesn't work after that. Because of this, I can't login to Windows. Does anybody know what the problem is? By the way, my computer is a Compaq Armada E500 running Windows 2000 Professional.

Computer with Windows xp professional turns on (fan and power light) but the other hardware: monitor, usb connections (usb harddrive, usb hub, mouse), Keyboard do not come on. I wonder if motherboard since there is also no sound? If got hit by surge or lightening would I still have power?
If it is Motherboard due to lightening can I just change out IT only?

So I was just sitting down watching a gaming stream online when all of a sudden i hear a beep My monitor goes blank but my computer still appears to be on I then decide to try and restart my computer it gets as far as the windows XP loading screen and stops so i try to restart again This time it manages to get past the loading screen but then a small blue box with nothing inside appears on my screen I restart again and this time i get a blue screen with text detailing the issue and that i should restart before more damage is caused I restart and this time nothing happens The computer turns on but nothing else It sounds as if the psu fan is speeding up Doesn't But Up Computer On Boot Turns and slowing down continuously It s a hard noise to describe It doesn t feel like the psu fan is blowing any air out when i put my hand next to it am i right to Computer Turns On But Doesn't Boot Up think that i have a dead psu or is it something much worse S thankyou for anyone that can provide advice and thoughts on this Computer Turns On But Doesn't Boot Up situations EDIT I m beginning to think it is the graphics card the sound which i originally thought was coming from the psu seems to be coming from my graphics card It would make sense seeing as the monitor went blank but the computer remained on Now the question is is my graphics card dead nbsp

Hey all,

I just bought a Logitech G15 Gaming Keyboard today. I plugged it into a USB port and installed the drivers, and the keyboard doesn't work. The LED lights don't light up, nor do any of the keys work. I tried plugging it into a different USB port and reinstalling the drivers, and it still doesn't work. I've also tried connecting the keyboard to another computer and it still doesn't work. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

A:G15 gaming keyboard doesn't work

Have you previously had a USB (as opposed to PS2) keyboard connected to the system ?
If not, then you may have to enable the function in the motherboards BIOS.
If you have then it sounds like a fault with the keyboard. The G15 does not require the drivers and utilities (Key profiler and LCD manager) for basic functionality. If you have USB keyboard support enabled then the keyboard backlighting and LCD screen ( "Logitech" for rev.1 blue backlit, "G15" for rev.2 orange backlit) will initialize as soon as the OS loads.

I deleted the keyboard file in settings/system/hardware/device manager/keyboards and rebooted. No help at all. My wife's friend installed a Chinese character set that is always there, but I used tb be able to just change to a western font and work on. That doen't even work anymore.

Hi there,
I have an acer aspire V11 touch laptop and about 2 weeks ago the keyboard stopped working properly. Whenever I try typing anything there is no output apart from when I try stroking multiple keys really quickly. However this results in a keyboard spasm and will continuously type out the same letter over and over again. The only way I can stop that is by holding down the esc key or the spacebar, and as soon as I let that go it continues!

I have tried pretty much everything in the control panel and settings, including trying to uninstall and reinstall it, as well as checking it wasn't anything to do with filter or sticky keys

Any help would be much appreciated, as using the touch screen keyboard takes so long to type everything!

This has never happened before and I only use a few websites like ebay,you tube , & amazon, plus the programs are all safe by norton antivirus .

So. I turn my desktop on today, and it sits there, the main monitor light just blinks, my secondary monitor, after showing the MSI screen, just shows this

After that, nothing. Computer is still on but nothing happens. I was thinking maybe something is wrong with my primary monitor, so I type in my password and hit enter. no sounds. I unplug my primary monitor and restart. No change.

My computer was also unplugged all night. The only changes made yesterday was the installation of System tools. Would that screw my computer over?

Any advice, tips, suggestions, or explanations are all welcome. I use this computer for working, and I have a mountain of important information on it.

I was playing around with Task Scheduler to turn on laptop at specific time, it works great. However, while the system starts up just fine, the screen remains black until I touch the mousepad.

Now that doesn't seem like a big deal, but what I was experimenting with is having the computer turn on so I could use TeamViewer app on my phone to access my desktop when I'm not home. Problem is, TeamViewer won't access desktop if screen is black and if I am not physically present, I can't tap the mousepad.

Anyone know why the screen doesn't turn on? It worked great on my old Dell with Vista, system and screen came on know problem.

A:Computer turns on, but screen doesn't with Task Scheduler

It's most likely in the power options to turn screen on when computer wakes from sleep. Just a guess.

I have Windows 8.1 Pro and a Logitech K800 Keyboard (wireless/illuminated) and I'm continuing to be frustrated by the fact that the Mute button does not work. Oddly enough, I had the same problem with a previous Windows 8.0 Pro install -- it went away when I upgraded to Windows 8.1. But the problem started again shortly afterward (maybe a week or two). I have the latest drivers and apps installed from Logitech.

After a reboot, the first time I hit the Mute key momentarily mutes the sound but then the sound returns (maybe after 1 second). After that, hitting the Mute key has no effect at all.

I have searched Google for a solution but nothing matches my problem. Oddly there are reports of all volume-related keys not working, but the Volume up and Volume down keys still work for me.

I'm wondering if anyone else is having these problems, and/or if anyone has suggestions.

A:Keyboard Mute Button Doesn't Work

There should be software for that keyboard. Some Keyboards that have extra keys work without added software, if they are a PS/2 KB. I don't have any USB KB's that have extra keys like that, the one I got is an old HP keyboard.

Check the Logitech site, see if there are drivers for that particular KB.

Method 1
Verify if the keyboard is enabled to wake the computer out of sleep mode.

a) Open the Keyboard control panel item, as described in Method 1.
b) Click the Hardware tab, and then click Properties.
c) Click the Change Settings button

Note This step requires Administrator access
d) Click the Power Management tab, and then verify that Allow this device to wake the computer is enabled.
e) Click OK, and then click OK again.

Hi all,

The apostrophe key on my keyboard stops working when I set input method to UK English. However I know this isn't a fault with my keyboard since I also type Chinese and the apostrophe key works fine when I'm using the Chinese input method.

I have read some posts regarding keyboard issues which suggested that I can check keyboard mappings and whether the key has been set as a soft key using the Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator, however the key has not been set as soft and keys usually light up in Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator when I press them on the keyboard but I get no response for the apostrophe key.

Does anyone have any ideas?

a friend has asked me to have a look at a laptop that hes had lying around for a while, the only problem with this machine (its a 'digital' HiNote VP) is that the far right side of the keyboard doesn't work correctly e.g when enter is pressed it do anything (most of the time minimise windows) sometimes however it does actually function properly.

I'm assume that because of the keyboard doing this its probably had something spilt on it at one stage, but I've opened the keyboard up and its all clean. Just wondering what people think could cause this and if its possible to try and fix the keyboard or should I just try to locate a replacement keyboard?

I've already ruled out a software problem because the keyboard also plays up in the BIOS in DOS etc (its running Windows 98)

A:Far-Right side of notebook keyboard doesn't work

Well, there are a lot of possibilities here. I would do the following:

Boot to a command prompt. If the keys donít work there, you have eliminated a problem with the operating system. If they work there, it is most likely an operating system problem.

If the laptop has been disassembled, check the keyboard to motherboard ribbon cable (if one exist) and make sure it is not damaged.

Just because you donít see anything that looks like a spill, does not necessarily mean something wasnít spilt in it.

You could take a shot at replacing the keyboard to see if that is the problem. If that is not the problem, then it is most likely a controller problem on the motherboard Ė this does not happen very often.

Does the laptop have an external keyboard/mouse (PS/2) connector? If it does, you could try an external keyboard to see if it will work. If that does not work either, then you most likely have a problem with the motherboard.

All in all, with the keyboard working part of the time, I would say that it needs to be replaced.

I hope that helps a little.

Frequently when I want to copy or paste something I end up typing a 'v' or a 'c' instead. Most of the time this means that whatever was marked it has disappeared and replaced by a single 'c'. Also quite frequently the keyboard enters two keystrokes where only one was made. I touch type and this doesn't happen on other keyboards. Anyone else is observing this?Will Lenovo improve the quality of the keyboard? Or is this specific to my keyboard and can I get a replacement?

So I was alt-tabbing around through my programs when all of a sudden my system speaker beeped. My keyboard completely locked up and did nothing. I restarted my computer manually and when I booted it up, the keyboard still didnt work. I repeated that for a while and I eventually gave up. A friend of mine told me to update the bios and clear CMOS. I flashed the bios using my mobo's integrated software(in windows) and cleared CMOS. Now my keyboard still doesn't work. I've tried clearing CMOS again and still no luck, but now the problem is my computer is stuck at the screen before Windows that says, "PRESS F1 TO CONTINUE PRESS DEL TO EDIT SETTINGS" and I cant use my keyboard. I've tried inserting my windows cd and it doesn't boot from it (probably because I cleared CMOS).

I'm trying to reinstall my operating system but my keyboard doesn't work in the boot menu, so I can't enter the BIOS. I've tried both a USB keyboard and a PS/2. I think it might be my mobo but I'm not sure enough to replace it. I've had problems with it in the past (I bought it out of box about a year ago, so it would make sense I guess) like the microphone jack and keyboard and mouse PS/2 ports not working, but the weird thing is that they used to work in Ubuntu when I was dual booting Vista/Ubuntu. I tried updating the chipset drivers but that didn't work.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! I really don't want to replace my motherboard but I guess I might have to.

A:Keyboard/Mouse doesn't work outside of Bios

Have you tried both the USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports for the keyboard and mouse? Maybe the USB 3.0 isn't working correctly due to drivers or compatibility with the Razer gear or drivers. Or can you borrow a basic USB keyboard and mouse?

I also see a BIOS update on the Asus website that addresses "USB Compatibility" and "System Stability" in another. If you do not already have the 1603 BIOS update you may wish to update it that one. You can update the BIOS through the BIOS itself, go into the Advanced section and use EZ Flash and load it from a USB stick; it must be extracted first though.

Ever since then, after boot, at the login screen, the keyboard does not allow me to type my password. However, I am able to use the function keys, which is the workaround I've found for this issue.

After booting and reaching the login screen, I must put the keyboard to sleep, then awaken it, for the keyboard to function properly. I've tried updating the driver, but it doesn't solve the issue. I was wondering if anyone had come across an issue like this. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

A:Entering BitLocker PIN: keyboard shows up but doesn't work

Hello, Welcome and thank you for posting in the HP Support forum. I work in a security team and I deal with encryption software and others. What you see if very common problem - I have seen similar issues on various tablet devices from various vendors with lots of encryption programs. Yes, you are correct, it usually is some incompatibility with the BIOS/UEFI. What I (and most my colleagues configure) and what I generally recommend is people NOT to use active preboot authentication screen for their encryption software - when the device is tablet with not physical keyboard.  So, workaround 1:- Disable PBA screen for Bitlocker = stop PIN authentication and leave it boot authmatically to Windows relying on TPM only.On theory, this is less secure option but practically, it does requires resources and time on a tablet to be broken. Workaround 2:- Disable PBA screen for Bitlocker = stop PIN authentication . Not applicable for all tablets and not available in any device - Enter the BIOS/UEFI and if possible activate the BIOS power on password - everytime the device boots from the internal "SSD" device, it will ask you for a password. This is not the encryption password but is also ~secure and acts like a PBA. Not sure for your device but you may try.  Potential solution :Try to upgrade the BIOS - may be you use an old version ?  You can download it from the HP support site or better use HP Support Assistant to check for BIOS/UEFI updates >>
