Keyboard doesn't work after specific user logs in ... RRS feed

  • Вопрос

  • Hello,

    I have a Windows Vista SP2 system that has two separate accounts; one is an administrator and one is the standard client. When the system starts up, the keyboard works fine but when the standard client logs in the keyboard stops working.

    The keyboard works for the administrative user, however.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

  • Had what sounds like a very similar problem on a Windows XP computer. User could enter their logon details, but when their profile loaded the keyboard did not work.

    In this instance it was the Filter Keys.

    The user had an icon that looked like an alarm clock down in the System Tray. Double clicking on that brought up the Accessibility Options and I unticked the Use Filter Keys check box, then OK'd out.

    Another way to get to the Accessibility Options is go to Start>Control Panel>Accessibility Options.

    Hope that this helps someone.

    This was a long time ago for me now but I believe what Richard wrote above was the fix for it.

    Thanks.

  • As the character Col. Hans Landa says near the end of Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds (sic), "That's a bingo!"

    It was quite a hassle searching help forums with the on-screen keyboard for the answer you provided here.  I thought I was loosing my mental faculties.  Other users could use the keyboard, other computers could use the keyboard, I could not use the keyboard.

    I never would have thought to check Filter Keys because of its obscurity.  Well, a round of snaps, a hearty hurrah...Thank you and well done, sir

  • Thanks so much for this gem. My forehead was bleeding from banging my head against the wall trying to figure it out. Unchecking 'Sticky Keys' in 'Accessibilty' got my keyboard functionality back.
  • Thanks Richard Pestell I used your tip and It's working all rite............

    have nice day

  • Thank you so much! I've had this problem for months. I worked around it by turning on the On-Screen Keyboard but felt that was an extra step that I shouldn't have to take. Your fix worked!
