The touchscreen works in those instances where keyboard and mouse do not. Even though I already deleted everything off my computer it was new anyway. Also can Create a new user account the verify whether the problem persists. This is clearly a driver issue in Windows 8. Graham Has anyone fixed this yet. It states that it is the version for 8.
Upgrading my driver offline worked only for the first time. I wonder if disabling both wireless and bluetooth might help a little, at least enough to get to the task manager. Hi mate, Dell is not being supportive in this matter, I spent an hour with a support person over the phone, updated all the drivers again from chip to keyboard even though it was all done by myself but no use at all! No mouse or keyboard after the sign-in screen - happy day! Lost my entire file history backup once. On-screen keyboard will help googling and using the find to find the options. Couple of hard resets and eventually they start working again.
I don't even hit the porn sites… really!! Nowadays, I spend my all time to solve Bluetooth problem in windows 8. Same problem, keyboard wouldn't work! In all honesty, this would be the first time that I actually had to reboot Windows 8 to get something to work again. Windows Key, all individual characters function keys, etc. I know I am posting quite late, but I thought I might explain how this happened to you. Still wondering how it changed though. Doesn't sound like a hardware problem since I assume it started only with 8.
Or even just leaned on it whilst using it. Hi Julia, Please answer this question to get more clarity on this issue. I thank you for this advice. But re-installing the driver not worked and all the tries were in vain. It's recommended in the Help Pages. I have been at my wits end. Windows 8 was working fine, installed the latest update and then.
Keyboard is being detected in the bios but not after booting into windows 8 It boots into metro screen or the home screen what ever you call it. Thank you so much you are a life saver. Prior to using the dvd to get a cmd promt, I noticed in my many futile attempts to force recovery mode while booting using shift-F8 that the keyboard worked fine until the very second Windows started loading and then it stopped. Press Windows + I on the keyboard to open the Settings window. Everything seems to boot up fine otherwise. I tried restoring a Restore Point from the 16th but it didn't fix it. It works in bios but when it comes to the logg in screen it starts to flash a couple of times and then it is inn-active.
I see a lot of people are having trouble with search. After the Windows Update in March a system reboot was required to complete the updates. Thank You Much Thank you for this! I frequently change the backlighting setting, so I don't know if that setting is held after sleep, hibernate or shutdown. When I am at the screen to put my password in there are two option boxes. To fix that go to the Start menu, find the and in the settings make sure the Sticky Keys and Filter Keys are disabled. I can't thank you enough!!!! Have you tried unplugging it and plugging it back in? The keyboard and mouse work fine for a while, then fail at boot time. For some models, ToggleKeys has to be turned on in every reboot; also some machines can only emit tones when they use the on-board sound controller; others can only hear them with a sound card.
I was trying to change the repeat speed as well and found out the keys were actually working. Anyone have an idea where the drivers are and the names? As soon as I plugged it back in, it stopped working. I checked these sticky keys but they are disabled. I have never used Ease of Access before today. I've gone through the ease of access center many times to enable, but it never works.
I'm now using the latest Bios level A12. Thank you so much for distressing a very stressful situation. Most of the time when i have to type something into a menu, i. I called Logitech and they sent me a new keyboard so I know that the hardware is working properly. Reboot, the bitlocker unlock window comes up, I type in my code and the keyboard works fine.
But there are unusual error occurred in installation. Many thanks in advance for any help. Please refer to the link below for more details about System Restore. The key presses down just as easily as the others, but no letter shows up. I think I'm seeing a similar issue on my Dell Precision 390. And to my surprise at times there was a key popping up. A technician told me that probably is a window issue and they can't do anything about it.
Then they sent a technician to my house to replace the motherboard, hard drive and key board. I guess I will know if it happens again. In addition, as far as specific sites go, this is the worst I have encountered. She had giving up on Windows 8 and lost all her confidence to use the new computer because she could no longer type on the keyboard. To do this you need to go to device manager and right click and uninstall every usb controller than reboot your computer.
