Keyboard freezes

Postby Kat on Wed May 09, 2007 10:01 am

I have a Hp Pavilion ze5700 laptop. In Bianca, the keyboard will sometimes freeze up. The mouse works fine, but I still have to hard boot to gain the keyboard back. I didn't have this problem in Bea and I was wondering if there was anyway to fix it.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

are you using the original kernel for Bianca or the new one?

the new one (2.2.17.11) seemed to break a lot of stuff for some people. I have found no problems with it though.

:D

Hi
If you are using a PS2 keyboard, try going into bios, and if there, "disable usb keyboard" also "disable usb legacy devices"
I had trouble with Edgy and Mint and Etch with PS2 keyboard, if a usb drive was connected the PS2 keyboard failed to funtion at all until I changed the bios as above.

If you are using USB keyboard just ignore the post :)
