Re: touchpad and keyboard freeze

HP did the same to mine, said it was an issue with the motherboard and came to collect it for repair (issues occurred after approx 6 months). The keyboard and mouse freezing issue has not re-occured.

Have had the leptop for close to 1.5 years now. Found that the performance has decreased rapidly in the last few months. It gets very hot, makes a lot of noises, constant freezing if I do anything quickly like change in between internet tabs or program screens. I know laptops aren't designed to last forever and the whole 'programmed obselecence' thing but I expect it to last for about 2 years at least before it all goes so downhill. Definitely will not be buying another HP laptop.

Re: touchpad and keyboard freeze

Hi,

For the touchpad and keyboard freezing during use, One step that you can try is a clean boot and see if you still have the same problem after. I have included the document 'How to perform a clean boot in Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows 7, or Windows Vista'. Follow the steps for your operating system, and then try performing the tasks that normally freeze up the computer. Is the computer still freezing up?

For the computer heating up and performing slowly. I have included the documents 'Reducing Heat Inside the PC to Prevent Overheating' to keep the notebook from overheating, and 'Improving System Performance without Adding Memory (Windows 7)' to see if cleaning up the computer will help it perform better. Please let me know if this helps.

Thank you.

Re: touchpad and keyboard freeze

Had the Dm1 4108au for just over a yr. Now, no longer in warranty. I always believed this issue was probably related to a software conflict so I never returned it during the first yr warranty period. Now, reading here that it needs to be repaired but is outside warranty. To be honest, this computer HP has sold many of us is a dud and it should be replaced or fixed regardless of warranty. It has been freezing up frequently since first purchase but operates well enough that you can live with it (sort of). 

 

Not a happy customer of HP. Will never buy another HP laptop if this represents the build quality we can expect.

Re: touchpad and keyboard freeze

I believe it has become worse over time but that may simply be because it is being used more now and so, if it is an overheating problem, the more we use it, the more it eventually overheats. But who knows? But it has always dogged this machine. hmmmmm

Re: touchpad and keyboard freeze

the problem is not that bad yet so is there any precautions i can take?
i m preety sure that its not because of overheating
i read some where that i happens also because of dust entering the keyboard. I m going to clean my keyboard with a vacum cleaner:smileytongue: ,with that small brush in it.

Re: touchpad and keyboard freeze

Same issue here!

 

Notebook:
HP Pavilion dm1-4100sb Notebook PC (A9X92EA#UUG)
AMD E-450 APU, 1650 Mhz
Radeon HD 6320 Graphics (Wrestler)
Wifi: Broadcom BCM4313 802.11bgn
Realtek RTL8111/8168/8411 Gigabit
Linux distro: Mint 17 XFCE or KDE, does not matter

 

Main symtoms: random freezes of the keyboard and mouse
a. I also experimented a 'full freeze' (nothing works, complete hang): no
b. Computer is still working well (opposite of #1 i.e. music still plays, movies/networking continues, ...) for everything except those issues: yes
c. Only the builtin keyboard freezes, the builtin mouse keeps working: no (usually, when a 'freeze' occurs, both do not work anymore)
d. Only the builtin mouse freezes, the builtin keyboard keeps working: no (usually, when a 'freeze' occurs, both do not work anymore)
e. Full freeze, but the builtin keyboard freezes in a "repeat" state, where it generally spams alt-tab: no
f. Keys for brightness change and for wifi turn on/off work even when rest of builtin keyboard is frozen: yes
g. Messages in dmesg or other logfiles: no
h. Appears more when I'm doing some networking on wifi: hmm, hard to tell
i. I can get a working session back, by putting the laptop in suspend by closing/opening he lid: ...
j. Command 'modprobe -r psmouse' using SSH gives me back only the builtin keyboard: ...
k. Command 'modprobe psmouse' using SSH gives me back only the builtin mouse: ...
l. When builtin keyboard/mouse is frozen and I push some keys on the builtin keyboard and than I start "modprobe -r psmouse" using a external USB keyboard, pushed keys emerge on terminal: ...

 

IMHO, it is not OS related (Windows, Linux, ...)

 

Not a happy customer at all.

 

Kind regards,

Jurgen L.

Re: touchpad and keyboard freeze

Dear Kyle,

 

My DM1 was working fine until it downloaded updates when I last powered it up.  Now the keyboard and mouse is frozen!  I need it for college work - so this problem is a nightmare!

 

How can I go into control panel etc as you have advised when keyboard and mouse is frozen?  

 

Please help!

 

Kindest regards....
