Suddenly, my laptop Dell XPS laptop keyboard can't be recognized by Ubuntu. Have to use on-screen-keyboard to log in, and can't find a way to make keyboard work. Keyboard works well in BIOS setup.

2.6.31-22-generic #69-Ubuntu x86_64 GNU/Linux

Can anyone share experience and solutions? Thanks!!

Hi, welcome to the fora.

2.6.31 indicates that you are running 9.10. Support for this one will end april 30., so rather than troubleshooting you should go for a clean install of 10.04.2 or 10.10.

Remember to have wired internet access while installing.
