"I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button. Check out some of my other posts if you need more tips and info." Some Keyboard Keys not working Not all keys on keyboard work Some of my keyboard keys aren working
First: Have you spilled any liquids on the keyboard? If so, you may not be able to fix this.
But try a few things...
1) Get an air canister, compressor or vacuum with a nozzle. Try and ****/blow any grit and grime from under the keys.
2) Carefully remove the spacebar and arrow keys using a small flathead screwdriver. Slide the blade of the screwdriver under the edge of the key and lift it up. Be gentle, as the small mechanisms holding the keys in place can break. Once the keys are removed, clean out any dust or grime using a lint-free cloth.
3) If nothing works, go get a new keyboard...you can get a nice one for under 30 buckaroos.
Click on the "Customize" button next to the first pull down menu. Sometimes these settings can interfere with your keyboard.
Make sure that, at the bottom of the "Customize" dialogue, your measurement system is set to whatever system your region uses. Once that tab in "Customize" is all set, move over to "Currency," "Time," and "Date," making sure that their settings are correct.
Click "Apply" for both the Customize window and the Regional and Language Settings window.
Test out the keys using a word processing program such as Notepad or MS Word. If the problem persists, it may be a hardware issue.
And if the above steps didn't work then your keyboard may be broken. Take a screw driver, cotton, and "spirit or aciton" and eraser "rubber". And then open or untie the screw of your keyboard and slowly remove all the keys and try to remove the carbon and gently wipe out all the keys attachment by applying the spirit and wipe out with cotton or rubber "eraser" gently where there is dirt. Then Check out whether there is disconnection or not?. And fix it as before and tied up all the screw it and fit in your CPU and see whether it's working or not if not my comment is to buy "purchase" a new one. All the Best!
The most common problem when faced with a non-working keyboard is an
improper connection. Try reconnecting your keyboard, restart your
computer and see if that fixes it.
2. Turn off the system. Unplug the keyboard connect and inspect
for any bent or broken pins. If the pins are bent, then it is possible
to gently straighten them using the tip of a ball point pen or
mechanical pencil. If the pins are broken, then replacement of the
keyboard may be necessary.
3. Try updating the device driver. Visit the manufactures web
site for the latest driver available for your keyboard make and model.
4. While at the manufactures web site. See if there are software
patches or updates available for your keyboard. If there are, go ahead
and install them as well as the updated driver.
5. If you are using a multi-media type keyboard, be sure to
delete the software before installing any new drivers for this type of
keyboard. Install the updated driver for the manufactures web site,
then re-install the keyboard software. If any software updates or
patches are available for your multi-media keyboard, install them at
this time. Delete the keyboard software by using Add/Remove Programs
(Start>> Control Panel>> Add/Remove Programs). If you
receive a prompt asking if you would like to remove all shared files,
answer "No to all". Then click OK.
this could very well be your OS as much as your keyboard. Try another board for a few days and see if it still happens. IF not...you found your culprit. Replace the keyboard or look for updated drivers if they exist.
try going to the start menu and then run type in msconfig in the box and click the last tab at the top labeled startup check and see if the device description is in that list if so make sure it starts running on startup by checking the appropriate box. restart and valla.....
Hope this fix ya

Solution. My wireles keyboard stopped working except for the F-Lock key, the Media key and the sleep key. It wasn't batteries, even though I tried, communication was there because the above keys were working. Remove the batteries from your keyboard and let it sit for about 10 minutes. Press the red connect button a few times and other various keys every few minutes during that time. This may be the whole "capacitor discharge" trick, but I tired that with someone elses instructions and my keyboard did not work after 2 minutes of key pressing. I think it just needed more time to clear out the secure settings. Good luck, I was about to trash this keyboard until I tried again
