Problem Description:
No error displayed
Studio 1735 keyboard began to stop working. At first it was just omitting the odd key, then it stopped registering any keystrokes whatsoever. Rebooting didn't help. Problem evident across all software applications. Also, fan seems to have begun running on highest setting non-stop.
I tried rebooting laptop. I also made sure the problem was evidenced in several different software programs. No new software was recently applied since this problem started showing up.
