HP ProBook 4730s Keyboard Not Working - How to Fix It

I was just working on an HP ProBook 4730s and the keyboard stopped working. None of the keys worked. I figured maybe I had hit the Alt key and some other key and inadvertantly changed a setting.

I went to another computer and looked up keyboard settings and fixing a broken keyboard, keyboard not functioning, etc..

I don't know what caused the problem, but it was really simple to fix. If this happens to you, shut off the computer, unplug the AC cord and remove the battery for a couple of minutes. I don't know why, but it worked. I am typing again.

  1. I've had the same thing happen with my three week old ProBook 4430s. I think it is caused by static electricity buildup, because I've also shut off my ProBook about 10 times when I sit down at my desk and touch it and I can feel the shock.
