Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

My laptop keyboard just randomly stops responding. touchpad works but not the keyboard


Answers :

In addition to the above, I remember an issue a few years ago with HP laptops. A common problem across a batch of about 120 within the organisation was that certain (if not all) keys would stop working. When you check the ribbon cable as described above, it would also be worth cleaning the contacts. We found a good quality (yet inexpensive) artists brush worked a dream, after we had run out of compressed oxygen!

Good luck
Most laptops have a ribbon cable connection just under the keyboard, you can usually pry the keyboard off GENTLY with a small flat blade, most times there is a couple little slides holding it down, I would check the ribbon cable and make sure it is seated
