Default Re:


Does your keyboard work during POST, or when your PC is booting up? (So can you press F8 to get into Windows Boot Options, or the key to get into BIOS settings?)

If your keyboard works during boot, then it's not a hardware issue, but is likely to be a driver issue. Try booting into safe mode and see if your keyboard works.
