All USB keyboard has stopped working


All USB keyboards have stopped working on my installation of windows 7. They work fine in the BIOS or on my Ubuntu installation. When I plug a keyboard, it still gives an error code 29 (drivers not found). I tried using two keyboards: a Logitech Gaming Keyboard G105 and a fairly generic wireless keyboard (a dongle to connect to the computer).

I tried to uninstall it from the Device Manager and plug or restarted again, but the result is the same. Windows Update cannot find driver updates, and a system repair disc doesn't detect any problems. I temporarily created a fresh install of windows 7, which recognizes the keyboards very well. There is no driver available manufacturer (attempt to all keyboards are supposed to use the base drivers), and the keyboard Logitech gaming software does not see that it is there. 'Control Panel-> devices and printers' keyboards of lists of names, but the shows not even the stuff of work that is just under the Device Manager and the problem-solving the tent and is unable to find the drivers again. Try to select the driver HID keyboard in the Device Manager just in fact give the code 10 error (device does not start) instead.
Nothing I've tried has gotten me anywhere. I would rather not re-install Windows 7, like all the time and effort to get my system how do I like it took me forever, but I can't see how I solve this problem. Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you

There is a good chance a "repair" install will fix the problem as a "repair" install should re-create any missing or corrupt driver installation file.

I don't see anything definitive where observer records but can provide you with the following file, which can provide more specific information:

  • USB keyboard has stopped working.

    Hi, I have an old Dell Dimension 2400 desktop computer. Recently while driving, the PC keyboard got accidentally unplugged while the pc was always under tension. This is a standard Dell USB keyboard which should be plug-and-play. Since then, the keyboard no longer works. I tried restarting several times, no luck. According to Dell keyboard is supported by microsoft XP and there is no driver is available on the Dell site downloads. I tried the system restore, and it made no difference. Help please. I don't have another keyboard to try.

    Hi newbs68,

    -Other USB devices would not be detected without any problem?

    Try to connect the USB keyboard to USB ports and see if it makes a difference. Also, if possible, connect the keyboard to a different computer and see if it is detected.

    In the meantime, follow the steps listed in the article mentioned below:

  • Dell bluetooth keyboard has stopped working

    I have a dell keyboard and mouse bluetooth.  The mouse works fine, but the keyboard has stopped working. Batteries are fine. Cannot 'discover' the keyboard because I don't seem to have any device options 'bluetooth' in my control panel devices. Any ideas?

    Contact Dell or just buy a new keyboard.  Wired are really not expensive - I bought one for $9 that works very well.

    Good luck.

  • Numbers of wired keyboard has stopped working

    I have a keyboard attached to a wired Macbook Pro Apple. The keyboard worked fine for a year apart from the occasional glitch when it stops working, I add an extension of cable and it starts working again.  However, all of a sudden the numbers on the keyboard at the top of the keyboard have stopped working (but - and = work). the keyboard on the right continue stop work very well.  I think the function keys work always.  Someone at - it ideas?  It's driving me crazy! Tried to restart and don't Scream - no luck so far.

    Hello Lloyd C from the United Kingdom.

    If I understand you right, the numbers on the wired Apple keyboard that you have connected to your MacBook Pro stopped working. We know that it's never ideal to have a device that does not work as expected, we are happy to help you get the keyboard to work again.

    The first thing I would recommend, first and foremost, is to update your Mac if there are updates available for the version of Mac OS X, you're running. Follow the steps in the article to support below if you are not familiar with how to update. For the purposes of troubleshooting, whenever you test your keyboard after you follow the steps that we provide, make sure that it is while the keyboard is connected directly to the USB port built-in on your MacBook and not connected to a USB hub. In addition, disconnect all other devices you have plugged into your Mac, besides than the charging cable under test.

    Update the software on your Mac

    If the problem persists after the update, the next step would be to reset the system management controller (SMC). The MSC is a part inside your MacBook, who helps run various physical parts of your computer, and resetting can sometimes help the problems associated with the keyboard and USB functions. The support article below contains the steps on how to reset the SMC.

    Reset the management system (SCM) controller on your Mac.

    Test the keyboard after that the MSC has been reset. If the problem persists, follow the steps in the "Steps to a USB keyboard" section in the following article:

    If your USB keyboard or wireless does not work

    Remember that it's always a possibility that the issue could be with the keyboard itself. If you continue to have problems with certain keys, try to connect the keyboard to a different Mac, if you manage to and see if you experience the same problems.

    Thank you for using communities of Apple Support.

    Take care!

  • My keyboard has stopped working - please help!

    For some reason, the keyboard on my laptop Satellite 1000 series has stopped working (I think someone was able to associate some liquid above...). Device displays Manager ' easy internet keyboard "and"logitech HID-compliant keyboard"(which refers to a USB keyboard I was forced to buy).
    No luck, anyone know what is happening and how I can get my keyboard to work again? Maybe something to do with the reinstallation of the drivers?

    Hi Adam

    If somebody spilled a little liquid to hardware malfunction and I guess that the keyboard is default now. Try to contact the Service partner and pick up some information how the new costs of keyboard. You can also a Google a little bit around and find that keyboard correspond to your model of laptop.

    In my opinion you can exchange only.

  • Toshiba 320 GB external USB HDD has stopped working


    Recently this evening my external hard drive has stopped working. I can start it and the blue light shows, but it seems that the arm of reading or the mechanical part is stuck or does not start. It has a very low and repetitive clicking noise.
    Before I used to get a strong enough * Click * when starting and now nothing. Nothing does load in windows either, and remains undetected.

    I thought that I could send to repair if it's arm which is broken or needs other than tighteneing as, it's a pretty desperate situation that recently, I cleaned my computer and used the external hard drive as back up, with all of my work for the last 8 years on this subject...

    And I can't afford a recovery of data of 300 books, either.


    Possibly the HARD drive died completely. I mean it might be possible that a head crash could cause this problem.
    My HARD drive died in the past, it was a laptop internal, HDD, and before that the HARD drive is dead, I noticed a strange rattling noise.
    After a restart the laptop the drive HARD was not accessible
    Well, HARD disk crash is not an uncommon problem and it always happens
    So, in most cases, it s also should back up the data twice. That is to say: on DVD, CD, etc.

  • HP Pavilion dv7-6c52ea all HP software has stopped working...

    Hi recentally purchased my DV7 (in the last two weeks), everything began to work very well and was incredibly fast. Then a week ago I noticed that he began to take a few minuets after loading office before it would work at normal speed. I have it linked to the HP connection manager, because it works run normally after the tab appears in the lower right.

    I decided to try and Manager of open connections, and all that happens is my processor jumps from 2% to ~ 15%, but no charge screen. Stays any computer in this state until I have completed the process in the Task Manager or you restart the computer. Since then, I realized this problem occurs with all HP (especially coolsence) software.

    Any ideas? I thought of all their software to uninstall and reinstall, but it could find on their website. Also, I tried already restotre system to the closest, which did nothing.

    Anyway, tahnks to help in advance,


    PS also do not know if this is related, but having a simular problem where the host appilication says catalyst control center has stopped working. Best solution I've found for that is just to remove the CCC, as it doesn't seem to be necessary. Thanks again

    OK, I gave up in the end and used the inbuild factory restore...

    everything seems to work fine now, just lost some of my files, but I can those back. First thing that I'll do this time, is to create a backup disk.

    Thanks for the suggestions, guess we may never know what was wrong

  • Touch pad/keyboard has stopped working.

    Hi there. im hoping someone can help me with a question im having my laptop. for some reason any my touchpad and keyboard stop working. I tried reintalling windows to correct the problem that it does for one day and then the same thing happens again. When I checked in Device Manager and clicked on the PS/2 mouse, he said that there is an error code 10. If I uninstall ps/2 and reboot the laptop this solves the problem for a while, and then it happens again. My OS is windows 7, I think it has been upgraded to windows vista (I recently bought this 2nd hand computer laptop) so im not 100% sure on that. the date of the driver for the ps/2 compatible mouse is 21/06/2006. I tried to look on the Web site for a more updated keyboard to update driver, but I can't seem to find a. She seems to have all other drivers dismantled for the keyboard driver.

    any help would be greatly appreciated


    Test the laptop using the external USB keyboard.

    Its certainly not related issue the keyboard driver keyboard driver is part of the Microsoft System and cannot be installed separately.

  • Satellite L650-170 - keyboard has stopped working


    The problem is that my laptop keyboard has suddenly stopped working. It does not at all.
    Although it responds until Windows loads up, which means that it is a software failure. External USB keyboard works too.
    Someone has any idea how to solve this problem?


    This means that in Windows the keyboard doesn t work?

    In this case, I would try a system restore to an earlier point. Maybe this can help get rid you of this problem.

  • Why my USB keyboard did stop working?

    Can some tell me why my USB keyboard stopped working after I upgraded my mac OS X EL Capitan 10.11.4?

    Seems that Apple had broken the old apple keyboard wired usb on OS X 10.11.4. New Apple wireless keyboard worked fine.

    Was not working at boot time and didn't work with windows bootcamp and did not work when started from the recovery partition, so it must be a problem with boot loader.

    Reseting EPRAM and SMC has failed.

    Time Machine restore to old 10.11.3, 10.11 install USB appears to only way to solve the problem.

    With old 10.11 usb install, because the keyboard did not work at boot time and restoring from Time Machine backup starting 10.11.4 recovery partition broke my fusion disk partition tables. I had to manually destroy disc fusion and remove partitions on the hard drive and ssd of command-line diskutil and create new logical volume of fusion in the car and after that he restore backup from Time Machine.

    Very well of the keyboard now work but lost 1 day and Windows 10/bootcamp partition in the process.

    I have iMac 27 "5 k end of 2015, but I like to use wired keyboard numpad because.
