Keyboard won't work - help!

Recommended Posts

writing this from work as our keyboard at home has stopped working. A couple of days ago my g.friend was fiddling around on it and the next day they keyboard had stopped working. basically the PC operates as normal until any key on the keybaord is pressed - then it freezes, and so does the mouse.

 

I tried to look at the properties of the keyboard thinking it was the driver for it, but all seems okay, except the 'Status' of it says somehting like: unconnected error code 10.... or words to that affect.

 

We're on windows XP. Any help would be greatly appreciated. It seems like the driver is at fault but I've tried the 'help' steps to re-installl it and it seems not to be making any difference.

 

If there's any kind soul out there who can help it'd be VERY appreciated.

Out of pure interest, when the computer is POSTing (i.e 'x' detected, 'y' detected), see (half-way down the screen) if IRQ 1 (this is the IRQ for the keyboard) is displayed - mine tells me what IRQs are 'alive', and the in the list is '1'.

By using the on-screen keyboard which is found on the programs - accessories - accessibility menu and worked with the mouse.

:cool:

Or (the boring answer) he could be simply using another PC.

No - my PDA's screen keyboard is better.

First line of my initial post states that I'm typing 'from work', clever man.

 

Anyways, I've tried system restore but it wouldn't have it. It said it couldn't restore to the earlier date. Still the keyboard isn't working. Is there somewhere I could take it to get it going again - London Road etc. Somewhere cheap but good?
