Re: how do i unlock my hp laptops keyboard

i dont think its locked up you just need a password to log in.. my laptop as an fn key as well and i use it to lock my laptop but i just type my password to log back in.. i did find a page that says if your keyboard wont function is to turn unit off, take the battery out and leave out for a minute then put battery back in then reboot the machine,.... try that

Re: how do i unlock my hp laptops keyboard

well she has just informed me that she is trying a system restore and if that dont worki she said that the computer would let her log in and then when she would go to use any program such as office or theinternet that the keyboard would be magically work and that the keyboard she pulls up on her screen with her mouse would work but nothing as far as the actuall keyboard working. we are going to try the above suggestion next and if you have any more suggestions or ideas please let me know... thank you

This did not activate my keyboard. Why not fix the actual problem instead of giving us a bunch of "try this" items.

Taken from ehow. It works for me. Hope this help =)))

 

  • Click on the Control Panel.
  • Go into the "Accessibility" options.

  • Open the tab labeled "Keyboard".

  • Make sure none of the boxes have a check in them. If the laptop has Microsoft Vista as the operating system, go to the "Ease of Access" option and go to "Change how your keyboard works." (Mine says "make the keyboard easier to use)  Make sure none of the boxes in that section are checked.

  • Click the "Save" button.

  • Exit the Control Panel and begin typing to see if the keyboard is now working.

Removing the battery for 5 minutes and reinstalling it made my keyboard work again as well as the touchpad. Thanks!
