The same thing has happened to my laptop today. I had been using it, then all of a sudden I couldn't type anything using the keyboard. We attached an external keyboard and it works using that. If you find out anything, please let me know. My email address is: <ADMIN NOTE:Email id removed per privacy policy> Hope you hear something soon! I'm using Windows 7, also.

Hi I had the same problem and poking around in the forum a bit I found the answer. You need to shut down your Studio 15 laptop. Unplug power cord and take out the battery. Then hold down the Power on button for approx 30 secs. Once done replace the battery and power cord and start up as normal. The problem should now be solved. It handled it for me.

hi guys, unfortunately i'm not able to tell you why is this happening but  it is appening to me aswell.

some days ago my keyboard started to go crazy, it was not able anymore to distinguish "g" from "v" and many more letters, it looked like some keys were staying pushed, many keys were not working and sometimes the mouse pad didn't work neither. then i tryed to reboot it and at the start up it started to "beep" like if i was keeping many keys pushed. now apart from the many beeps it does at the start up, and some key wich gets stuck it is working pretty fine, but i would like to solve the keys and beeps problems. i don't know if the issue is the same of yours, but unfortunately the "plug the battery off and press the turn on button for 30 secs" did not work.

 

please help me with any guess you got.

thank you all
