Have a Compaq laptop about a year and a half old. was working fine then turned it on yesterday and the entire keyboard does not work, everything comes up fine just cant type anything or use the keyboard for anything other than to look at. Any help is appreciated
disconnect external keyboard
right click on an empty space, click properties. click Device Manager to the top right, look for keyboard. if you see a keyboard and it doesn't work, then it broke.
if there's nothing under the keyboard category, then there're two possibilities:
1. it broke.
2. the connection became lose.
you might not want to open the laptop and check for the plug, but a lose connection is always a possibility.
or maybe there's a software fix, maybe it's a common problem for your model of laptop, do some research.
