  1. Hi,

    sometimes my laptop keyboard and the touchpad just turn off. I can't use any key an I dont even see the cursor on the display. Ii need to restart my laptop and then everything works fine. I've already downloaded a driver from the manufacturer's site. Is this maybe a hardware problem?

    I have an HP Pavilion 17 e130ez notebook.

    Hi,

    You may try to hard reset your laptop by removing the battery off and also disconnecting the AC power adapter/charger. Then press and hold the power button for about 30 - 60 seconds, after you release it, reconnect the power and turn your laptop ON and find out if you're still having those issues.

    I had that occur just once. The touch-pad was disabled somehow (I think it was a virus that got aborted) and I fixed it using a USB mouse.
