Hey guys, just posting this for those peeps with hp laptops, I think mostly pavillions, every once in a while the stops working

quick fix for those people doing a search to find a solution;

hit control+alt, that usually brings the keyboard back online, but sometimes it won't.

In those cases you be ready with a keyboard shortcut on your desktop, once you open the desktop keyboard you can close it down, your hardware keyboard should work

the target for the shortcut is below, just right click on the desktop and it will walk you through the shortcut process, cut the following and paste it into the target for your shortcut;


%windir%\System32\osk.exe

Once you have the shortcut put it into your quick launch so you can get it going with the mouse.

If the hardware keyboard still doesn't work, you can complete your work with the screen keyboard before you restart

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
