My keyboard stopped working and now i have to type with the on-screen keyboard which takes a long time. the audio and fastforward keys work but not anything else. the keys work when i restart my laptop but only for like a minute and when i use them it puts random plus signs after i type stuff and i itried reinstalling drivers but it wont work please help
NOTE: If you need to type in a password to even get into Windows to do the following, make sure you attached an external keyboard first, to get past the password. Then disconnect the external keyboard and try the following...
I know you said you reinstalled the drivers, however if not done this way, it may not resolve the issue (if it is the drivers).
1. Uninstall the keyboard driver.
2. Reboot the computer (without reinstalling the driver).
3. When it restarts, it should reinstall the driver on its own.
If this doesn't work, you may wish to try connecting/reconnecting an external keyboard and see if it works fine. If it does, then it could be the keys themselves that are the issue.
Aditionally, if your device uses one, you may want to try updating the Synaptics Driver if the above doesn't help.
You may also want to check the device for malware, viruses, etc., which can interfere with normal operation.
