Keyboard touch U430 stops working randomly in Windows 10

Since I've upgraded to Windows 10, keyboard stops working randomly in different programs. For example, it might stop working in Firefox, but at the same time it would work very well in Chrome and Notepad. Or it stops working in Chrome, but works very well to edge and Firefox. Most of the time, closing and opening the progrm do nothing, only a reboot solves the problem for a while. I should also mention that, while the keyboard stops working in this particular program, the program itself is not frozen and it works fine if I use the touchpad.

Not sure if MS or Lenovo is to blame, but Lenovo should look into it.

Found the culprit. Kaspersky virtual keyboard. For the disabled that and no more problems.

    Vista and Windows 7 updated drivers love then here's how update the most important.

    This is my generic how updates of appropriate driver:

    This utility, it is easy see which versions are loaded:

    -Free - DriverView utility displays the list of all device drivers currently loaded on your system.
    For each driver in the list, additional useful information is displayed: load address of the driver,
    Description, version, product name, company that created the driver and more.

    For drivers, visit manufacturer of emergency system and of the manufacturer of the device that are the most common.
    Control Panel - device - Graphics Manager - note the brand and complete model
    your video card - double - tab of the driver - write version information. Now, click on update
    Driver (this can do nothing as MS is far behind the certification of drivers) - then right-click.
    Uninstall - REBOOT it will refresh the driver stack.

    Repeat this for network - card (NIC), Wifi network, sound, mouse, and keyboard if 3rd party
    with their own software and drivers and all other main drivers that you have.

    Now in the system manufacturer (Dell, HP, Toshiba as examples) site (in a restaurant), peripheral
    Site of the manufacturer (Realtek, Intel, Nvidia, ATI, for example) and get their latest versions. (Look for
    BIOS, Chipset and software updates on the site of the manufacturer of the system here.)

    Download - SAVE - go to where you put them - right click - RUN AD ADMIN - REBOOT after
    each installation.

    Always check in the Device Manager - drivers tab to be sure the version you actually install
    presents itself. This is because some restore drivers before the most recent is installed (sound card drivers
    in particular that) so to install a driver - reboot - check that it is installed and repeat as

    Repeat to the manufacturers - BTW in the DO NOT RUN THEIR SCANNER device - check
    manually by model.

    Look at the sites of the manufacturer for drivers - and the manufacturer of the device manually.

    How to install a device driver in Vista Device Manager

    If you update the drivers manually, then it's a good idea to disable the facilities of driver under Windows
    Updates, that leaves about Windows updates but it will not install the drivers that will be generally
    older and cause problems. If updates offers a new driver and then HIDE it (right click on it), then
    get new manually if you wish.

    • Have you tried the suggestions of Imran M in other post?

    You can view these methods:

    Method 1:

    Temporarily disable UAC and check if the problem persists.

    1. open Control Panel.
    2. under the user account and family settings click on the "add user account / remove."
    3. click on one of the user accounts, for example, you can use the guest account.
    4. in the user account, click on the link "go to the main page of the user account.
    5. under "Make changes to your user account", click on the link "change security settings".
    6. in him "turn User Account Control (UAC) to make your computer more secure" click to deselect the "use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer. Click the Ok button.
    7. you will be asked to restart your computer. Do when you're ready.

    Warning: User Account Control (UAC) can help you to prevent your computer from unauthorized changes. It works by asking permission when a task requires administrative rights, such as installing software or changing settings affecting other users. We do not recommend disable user account control. If you turn it off, you must reactivate as soon as possible.

    Method 2:
    I recommend the clean boot and try to run the program.

    Configuration of your system in a clean boot state helps determine if third-party applications or startup items are causing the problem. If so, you need to maybe contact the manufacturer of the program for updates or uninstall and reinstall the program.

    See the following article in the Microsoft KB for more information on how to solve a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or Windows 7:

    How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7

    Note: After troubleshooting, be sure to set the computer to start as usual as mentioned in step 7 in the above article.
