Laptop Keyboard doesn't work.
Hi Monte,a belated happy 4th of July.
I have an Asus M6000 Note Book.
The problem with it is the on board keyboard will not operate.
I can boot the system and use an external USB keyboard.I have tried a new keyboard,removed the battery from the BIOS to try and rest to the factory defaults,but I still can't use the keyboard.
I can't get to the BIOS settings as the external USB keyboard only starts to operate after the O/S starts.
I noticed that on Booting the computer if I press the F2 key on the onboard keyboard it opens the DVD drive so in some way the keyboard is working, but if I press the escape key to enter the BIOS (from the operators manual) this does nothing and the computer continues to boot successfully.
I may be stuck with just using the external keyboard but it would be good if I could get the keyboard functioning.
By the way the touchpad operates O/K, could it be that some one has locked the keyboard and if so is there a way to unlock it by using some combination of Key strokes.
I do have the your computer repair manual but I can't locate any suggestions to this subject.
Thanks for your time and I appreciate the effort you put into your webb site.
