My new laptop keyboard doesn\'t type.

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?

    First thing I tried but that didn't bring it back either. Any other ideas?

    Hi :)

    Do that again with the battery REMOVED AND NO CHARGER CONNECTED...

    Wow this really worked. Thank you very much. My granddaugher will be very happy. HP didn't even have a fix other than replacing the keyboard. Maybe they better start using this forum.
