Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Hey I was typing on my Westinghouse Laptop then all of a sudden the keyboard just stopped working. Can you help me?

Answers :

How about just right clicking on " MY COMPUTER " and going to device manager and checking to see if the keyboard has an error status. I.E. it has a red X on it.
\015\012If so, try downloading new drivers for your laptop from the manufacturer website.
\015\012If it apears to be working normally according to Device Manager. Then you may have a bad connection. O the bottom there may be screws with a tiny PIC of a keyboard, undo these or it may come off from the top. You will have top determine this yourself. be carefull theres sensitive plastic pieces.
\015\012Once the keyboard is able to come off, carefully lift it and check the connection ribbon that attaches it to the Mobo.
\015\012Try this after trying the stuf the other guys said and if there advice didnt work. It may be a SIMPLE problem.
\015\012Plug in an External Keyboard. If it works fine then your keyboard may have just gone bad.
\015\012that or the connection on the motherboard.
\015\012Its hard to tell so check all the simple things first and work your way out. and dont spend more than a third of the money the laptop costs, trying to fix it. It will be obsolete in 2 years anyway, just save for a new one with a good warranty.
\015\012Try to solve your problem you can use your lap top temporary buy a new keyboard attached to your lap top see to it there is usb port. Or else they keyboard is dirthy try to clean and touch all character on the keyboard maybe there is not functioning. thanks
