Re: keyboard not functioning at all
Since it's a USB keyboard, have you tried plugging it in to a different USB port? If you use a USB to PS2 adapter, check if that is properly seated (both sides). Similarly if it's plugged into a USB hub, try a different port and then plugging it directly into the computer.
I have had USB ports fail and shifting a device to a different port often lets me continue using the device. If none of these ideas help, the keyboard might have a bad cable or other failure that I can't diagnose.
1) Its cord is disconnected from the PC unit 2) Your Keyboard drivers are outdated.
If the cord is fine, I recommend that you go to the hardware wizard (Start Menu -> Settings -> Control Panel -> Hardware Wizard) and run a "detect new hardware." This feature should be able to get your keyboard going again - and you should be able to access this feature by using your mouse only.

The keyboard has a feature (and associated button) called F-Lock. By
default, when the computer boots, F-Lock is turned on. In the F-Lock
mode, rather than sending the standard key commands for the function
keys, the keyboard sends special alternate commands (like print for F7 and save
for F8) that are configured in the iTouch program. In order to force
the keyboard to send the standard function key commands, you must TURN
OFF F-Lock by pressing the F-Lock button! Oh, and by the way, there are
no indicator lights on the keyboard, and the F-Lock button is an always
up momentary button - just like the keys on the keyboard, so there is
no way to tell what state it is in, other than by pressing it and then
pressing an F key to see what happens!
This should solve your problem. Just turn off the F-Lock Mode. Hope this helps if it does please leave a comment or a vote. Thanks JHH
Did you or anyone else spilled anything on them? Do you have a pet that may stepped on your keyboard?
What you can do is to take out on of the problematic keys. Disconnect from power and use a small ruler to pop the key out. See if anything is under there. Maybe hair or food. Do not shake your laptop as this can lead to other problems. Get a dry cloth and clean the key base and underneath the key. Reinsert the key and try it again. If this works do the same for the other keys.
After changing the batteries and cleaning the corrosion out of the battery case, I pressed the connect button on the Logitech receiver, then the red restart button on the underside of the keyboard and it was fixed!
If you are trying to use the numbers in the numpad, Then make sure the Numlock is on. Even after this if the numbers are not appearing then, Install the key board driver given in the CD or through the company web site. Even after that if the key board is not functioning then, you may need to take the key board to a technician. May be a possible crack in the keyboards circuit board.
Hello. Has the keyboard been dropped/banged around recently? Do you have children or pets that could have spilled liquid, food, who-knows-what in the keyboard? Also, if you press one of the non-functional keys(eg.: A) do the keys above/below it press down as well?
Press the Receiver button (and the lights will start
Then if the Keyboard isn't working, press the small RESET/CONNECT
button on the back of the board to connect the keyboard to the
