Hello,

im using a Sony VAIO E Series laptop and had it for only 2 moths. i might have clicked on something but now the keyboard isnt working. the only buttons that works are fn + F1/F5/F6/F7/F12. that's all. whenever i click the other buttons its just making a 'click' sound instead.

p/s: im using on-screen keyboard now

Hello,

Try this 1

1) First check if you are able to use the keyboard without any problem in the

"Safe Mode".

When you switch ON your PC, keep tapping the "F8" key to get "Windows

Advanced Options"( if boot menu appears, press "Esc" key and keep tapping the

F8 key).

Select the option "Safe Mode".

2) If the problem still exists then click on Start --> In search bar, type

devmgmt.msc and press Enter. "Device Manager" will be opened.

Expand the "Keyboard" by double-clicking on it or by clicking on the "+" symbol

--> Right-click on your keyboard name that appears underneath of "Keyboard"

option --> Select the option "Uninstall" and restart your PC.

3) Such problems is also due to the dust where you need to clean the keyboard.

Good Luck
