  1. Hi,

    I have one laptop with Windows XP on it. The problem is that keyboard and mousepad both all together die randomly but usb mouse still works. This error occurs randomly. Not everytime i use the computer.

    Anyone got the same problems?
    Thanks in advance!

    well based on the info provided my first guess would be that the keyboard is shot.... or ... if its a toshiba TE 2000 it might be the connector that the the keyboard ribbon connects to might be loose and need resoldering...but that would be the only 2 i can think of right at the moment... let us know how you fix it so it can possibly be of help to others

    No it's fujitsu siemens, and keyboard and mousepad are woking fine most of the time. But sometimes they just stop working for no reason. Computer still runs. I have an usb mouse and that mouse works for instance but the mousepad isn't working. Strange really. Hope that this error won't occur too many times.
