\015 My laptop does not respond to keystrokes. Could this be a problem from my trying to make the puter "easier to use"\015

Answers :

I would say its probably because either the keyboard is bad or the cable from the keyboard to the motherboard needs to be reseated.

You can always try to keep pressing the F8 key as soon as you turn on the laptop and see if you can get it to go into the boot menu. If you do then you know the keyboard is fine, you can always go into safe mode and choose a system restore back to the last date the keyboard was working properly.

Give it a few tries and if you can't get it to go to a boot menu then the next best thing to do is to turn off the laptop and then take the keyboard cover off. Once you have it off then go ahead and unscrew the screws that are holding in the keyboard. Take out the keyboard and then go ahead and put the keyboard back in.

If you do this and it still isn't responding to any keystrokes then the keyboard is bad and would need to be replaced.
