PC Concepts SK-6000 keyboard suddenly loses contact with computer and does not respond. I have to reboot computer to get keyboard to work again. I have not intsalled any drivers, but never thought that would be necessary as I have Win XP. I tried to pull a key off to see if it was dirty underneath, but these keys dont seem to want to come off without a hard pull, and I am not going to risk doing that. Is there a trick to doing that?

Make sure that all USB functionality is enabled in the BIOS, especially USB Legacy Mode. If Windows still does not recognize the keyboard, then it is not compatible with USB. USB keyboards can be found as low as $10 pretty easily if all you need is basic keyboard functions.
I just went through this as well, and found a (free) working driver here- http://militarycac.com/keyboards.htm Download the driver and install it, then reboot the computer. It will say "found new hardware". Manually install the driver by telling it to browse to the location of the *.inf file you just unzipped moments before. Even recognizes the smart/CAC card. ^_^
Have you gone in and removed the usb drivers by doing the following.
1.) right click on my computer
2.) select properties
3.) Select Hardware tab
4.)Select device manager Then remove all instances of usb that you can. You may have to try this using just the mouse for navigation. Right click on usb item then select uninstall. Remove all the ones you can then reboot the computer. You may have to reboot a couple times Then try the keyboard it should work no problem
