I bought a keyboard for my laptop yesterday (dont laugh :p) got it home and tried it and whenever i plug it in or remove it, the windows stop error message will appear, blue screen, crash, restart. everytime. i took it back to the store and it works on their machines :S

is there something out of place on my laptop or sumthing? (the keyboard had no software to be installed, on the USB interface)

please help:normal:

If you boot with it plugged in the the USB port does it still do it, or does this happen only when you plug it in after the machine has been booted?

this is what it says on my blue screen

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

***STOP:0x0000000A (ox80564f9a, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x80564f9a)

and then a tonne of stuff about correctly installed hardware and software, but as the keyboard is plug and play, there was no software :|

thank you for your very useful and frequent help tips :upset: i'm quite surprised that your response is so slow.. but nvm

i found my problem, the problem is that the keyboard that i plug in interfears with the inbuilt keyboard on the laptop, and laptops always have to have 1 keyboard running at a time, plugging the USB keyboard in before booting the laptop up tricks it into thinking there is 1. then when it is unplugged, both crash, resulting in the stop error

thank you for your help :sigh:
