Re: Keyboard not working


What happens if you try safe mode by hitting F8 at boot? Does the laptop respond to keyboard commands during the initial POST (like hitting <del> or an F key to enter the system BIOS)?

My Vista Home Premium edition came with my Acer 5100 laptop and all of
a sudden my keyboard wont respond(the mouse still does).

I brought up device manager and Keyboard is not listed among the
hardware devices.

Any suggestions to fix this? My laptop didnt come with the Vista DVD
and when I tried System Restore, it said the C drive is corrupt or some

Thank you in advance :D
