Hi Solomon,

If you're having trouble with your keyboard, it could be for a number of reasons. If a few keys aren't working, you may have debris under the keys. If the entire keyboard is not working, maybe it has sustained liquid damage and needs to be replaced.

Here's a link to the Troubleshooting Guide for the computer. It will help you determine what your problem may be and how to fix it.

Try restarting the laptop. It is possible that the keyboard glitched or the display froze.

Have you recently done any repair work or upgrades to the computer? I have done many repairs on laptops and in all honesty, I have had a few instances where I forgot to plug a few connections back in, resulting in said device not working.

Has there been any water damage? Keyboards are the most vulnerable to water damage, and may need replaced.

If you're tech savvy and good with a screwdriver, I recommend opening the computer up and checking the keyboard cable to make sure it's not unplugged or damaged.
