Question about Microsoft Natural Ergonomic 4000
The problem is with the keyboard or the computer. Plug the keyboard into a different computer and see if you get the same result. If you don't have another computer, call a friend or family member. If it is not the keyboard, then try a different USB port on your computer, that particular port might have been damaged.
It could also be a simple fix of delete and reinstall the drivers for your USB controller under windows.
Before attempting this next step, make sure you have the drivers for your CPU mother board. You most likely will not need them, but just to be safe. I would always download the up-to-date version from the website of who ever made your computer.
Go to the start button, and click on "Run", not type "devmgmt.msc" and click the "OK" button. Now, the device manager should be visible. Now click the "+" symbol next to the words "Universal Serial Bus controllers". This will expand the device tree. Now Delete or Uninstall the bad USB controller, not sure which one is the bad one, uninstall them all. Now goto the "Action" menu and click "Scan for Hardware changes".
