Laptop keyboard not working? Here’s how to fix it

If your laptop keyboard is not working, there are several things you can try to fix the issue:

  1. Restart your laptop: Sometimes a simple restart can fix keyboard issues.
  2. Check for physical damage: If your keyboard has been physically damaged, it may need to be replaced. Check for any visible damage or spills that may have caused the issue.
  3. Check the keyboard settings: Make sure that the keyboard settings on your laptop are set up correctly. Go to “Settings” and then “Devices” to check the keyboard settings.
  4. Update your laptop’s drivers: Sometimes outdated or corrupted drivers can cause keyboard issues. Go to your laptop manufacturer’s website to download and install the latest drivers.
  5. Uninstall and reinstall the keyboard driver: If updating the drivers doesn’t work, try uninstalling and reinstalling the keyboard driver. Go to “Device Manager” and then “Keyboards” to find the keyboard driver. Right-click on the driver and select “Uninstall.” Then restart your laptop and the driver should be automatically reinstalled.
  6. Use an external keyboard: If none of the above solutions work, you can use an external keyboard until the issue is resolved.

If none of these solutions work, it may be time to contact your laptop manufacturer or a professional technician for assistance.
