Keypad does not work for Dell Inspiron 6400

\015 My keyboard won't work, i can not type a word,number nothing. Help\015

Answers :

1. Shut down the PC
2. Disconnect your network cable
3. wait 15 seconds
4. plug your network cable back in
5. boot back up

If this is a laptop or on a docking station, the process is a little different.

Good Luck!!!!!!!
It is probably toast. You can either get a new one or use an external USB. This is assuming that you mean that you cannot use the keyboard at all, not even in BIOS.

\015\012If you can use it until it starts loading windows or something, then I would imagine the only way around it is to repair windows, or do a restore, possibly a check disk. I doubt it is this second option though.
