The internal keyboard and touch pad of my laptop have stopped working suddenly. The laptop was running but I did not use it for maybe 5 minutes. Then the touch pad and the keyboard did not do anything anymore. Rebooting did not help. I use external devices now.

In the device manager the devices are only shown when hidden devices are displayed. Both devices have a yellow exclamation point and error code 24 in details (device not present or not working). Replacing the drivers with a compatible one does not help.

A similar problem in is in the following thread, but for windows XP: Laptop Keyboard Not Working
There the problem was solved by reinstalling windows. Is there any quicker solution?

Updating the BIOS did help. Great.

(The keyboard did not work in the BIOS nor when booting an other system. So a BIOS update was the only thing I tough that could help.)

Does this mean that you have resolved your problem?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
