Today I turned on my laptop, a HP Pavilion G4, to find everything working as usual. But after some time, I found out some keys could not be pressed at the same time, specifically Z and Q, later it included every other number or letter on a vertical row, except the function keys. Later, and horizontal line stopped working altogether and suddenly it was the whole keyboard, except the function keys, of course.

I tried turning it on and off, which solved the problem, at least for a time, before it stopped working again. Does anyone know what's wrong? I am very sure it's not a physical problem.

hi, Crack Razor

Check the Device Manager on your laptop. If the keyboard line item has a yellow exclamation point next to it or if the keyboard icon doesn't show up at all, then you should try to get to your laptop maker's download page, then download and install the latest drivers for the keyboard. You may have to hook up a USB keyboard to navigate text entry fields, but after you find the correct file it should be a quick download and fix.

Hope this helps!

Thank you so much for the help, I appreciate it, but sadly I couldnt find drivers for the keyboard and it has stopped working entirely. I guess I will need to look some place to repair it if there is no other solution.
