I was listening to music on my PC, and all of a sudden the sound just cut out and the keyboard stopped working. I've rebooted twice and no success :( So now i'm left with no sound, and im using a not-so-good quality keyboard that plugs in to the USB port :(

Any help would be appreciated :(
 
Ok, i found a registry tweak online that has fixed the sound problem (it restored the settings to default) :).

But my keyboard is still not working :(.
 
I dont think i explained the keyboard problem correctly. My standard keyboard that plugs into the standard keyboard connection thing at the back of the computer is not working :( so now i am using another keyboard that works, it's a USB one.

How can i sort out the problem of the original keyboard not working :(

Correct! :)

You sure you got it plugged in the right hole ;)

Yep, definately sure. It's been there since I got the computer, never been removed since, so it should all be gravy - but it aint :( Thanks anyways

Any other ideas? Please i really need to get my keyboard working :( This is a really bad USB keyboard - it has no GB Pound symbol, and the #, @, and " keys are all in different places

When you say ur keys are all over the place I presume you mean....to access @ you need to use shift and 2 etc...if this is the case then go into control panel click on the keyboard setting and re-do your setup for it. It sounds like it is set up for english/usa rather than english/english.

Hope this helps until you sort another keyboard out.
 
Thanks Tina & Little Pob, thats sorted out the key problem :)

But i still dont know why my old keyboard just suddenly stopped working :(
 
This may be a stupid suggestion and if so feel free to tell me, but have you tried unplugging the original keyboard then putting it back in while the pc is turned off ? Sounds silly i know but sometimes it does sort this problem.
