T61 keyboard issue

I just purchased the T61 a few weeks ago and had the Vista replaced with XP Pro.  Lately, the keyboard would often stop working after standby mode and I had to reboot the unit to make it work again.  Really frustrating.  Is this a hardware problem or a software setting issue? Thanks

Re: T61 keyboard issue



Posting the model number and the OS helps us help people. However, I strongly advise AGAINST posting serial number of one's machine, since it can be abused, especially if the unit is still under warranty.

You could try the Lenovo website support and downloads. Type in your machine type and see if there is a keyboard driver. It worked for me.

Re: T61 keyboard issue

I met the same problem.

The keyboard and audio card always have problems after I changed the windows Vista to XP. Maybe the problem is you could have installed the driver named "IBM xxx  UltraNav  driver". Uninstall it and check the computer again.
