    Keyboard Problems

    Strange problem on my HP desktop.
    When I shut down my computer at night and start it again the next morning the keyboard will not work.
    I will then restart and it works. the driver shows to be current,I have tried unplugging it but it still dose the same thing.
    anybody have any ideas? I am Completely baffled.

    thanks for the advice but no go.
    I have googled it but don't see anything that looks like it pertains to me.
    a lot of Bluetooth problems on upgrades but not much on USB.

    Try going to Control Panel | Hardware and Sound | Power Options | System Settings and disable (uncheck) Turn on Fast Startup.

    Sorry, but I don't know for suure. Do you have the latest BIOS for your machine and the latest drivers for the keyboard & mouse?

    I have not checked the BIOS but both windows and HP show I have the latest driver.
    I will play around with it and if I find anything interesting I will let you know.
    thank you very much for your help.
