Re: Computer Key board stopped working
I take it your keyboard was OK until one day it stopped working. Here is what you should try before you mess around with anything else: Do a system restore. You don't say what operating system you have, but you should be able to find it under All Programs>Accessories>system tools>system restore. Restore your computer to an earlier time--like back to when your keyboard was working. Sounds like you installed something that messed your system up!
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Well This is the first time I have seen the question so tell me did you post it in keyboard section or in computer section? if not that is a reason it may have not been answered. We also need some more information your keyboard does not work is it wireless? and does it have a wireless mouse connected to it? if so you need to pair the key blard and mouse together, what brand is it? if you answer this post I will help you.

The swapping process you have used already have clearly shown that your keyboard is faulty. It may be that a key is pressed down permanently / faulty and this blocks the signalling - check all the keys carefully to ensure none is depressed. Or one of the Connector pins (the part that goes into the computer) is bent - you may need to check and use a tool to straighten it.
But it is good to know that Keyboards are cheap to replace. If the above did not help, you can buy another keyboard for as low as £5 and then continue enjoying your computer.
I would sagest that you try reinstalling the drivers from the CD that came with your keyboard if this does not work try disconnecting your keyboard and starting up your PC and after the PC bleeps re plug your key board in and see if this woks failing all that replace the hardware with new and make sure you have set a restore point to go back to if any future problems occur

I have had problems similar to this B4, it seems that when ya use a Wifi Key board some software "locks out" any other keyboards via the PS/2 interface..
I got a work around by using a USB Adapter and plugged my "Other" keyboard into a USB slot & could then use both, but not some features of it.
So then later, I then got a "Real" USB keyboard and was able to use all the "Features" it had.
