Solved My new laptop keyboard doesn\'t type. Tags: Laptops Battery Keyboards Windows 7 Last response: September 2, 2012 8:33 PM in Windows 7 Share surliner September 2, 2012 5:50:00 PM The battery died when I was typing. When I got it plugged in and it came back up my keyboard would not work. What should I do? Are there hot keys or short cut keys that could have been pressed as the power went out that could cause this problem?

Thank you very much. My granddaugher will be very happy. HP didn't even have a fix other than replacing the keyboard.
