View Full Version : [lubuntu] Laptop keyboard stops working suddenly

Help. My keyboard stopped working all of a sudden. The builtin mouse nub and buttons still work. And when I reboot I can use the keyboard in GRUB fine.

I'm running Lubuntu Maverick on an IBM T23.

Any ideas on diagnosing/solving the problem?

Oddly I had my keyboard stop functioning yesterday, the only solution was to hard-reset my computer.

It might have something to do with the latest upgrades, I've only had problems with freezing/non-responsive systems after the most recent apt-get upgrade I've done.

I just installed on my friends laptop a few days ago... Dell.. He told me tonight he had the same problem... The keyboard stops working every once in a while.. He power cycles to return the keyboard functionality.
