Try going to Device Manager. Right click on the Keyboard and choose Properties. Click on Update Driver as it might find something (let it look online also). Reboot the computer. If that doesn't work, go to Device Manager, right click on the keyboard, choose Uninstall, and reboot the computer. When the computer starts up and sees the keyboard and loads a driver(s) for it, it might fix it. Good luck.
In this case i would recommend you to please try connecting the external keyboard to the system and check if you have the same issue with the external one as well.
If the external one works fine then I believe there is a need to reseat ( disconnect and reconnect) the keyboard.
Just out of curiosity, what do you mean by "reconnect"? Did you physically disconnect it? To correct this, put it back in the slot for the keyboard data strip by pulling up the plastic pieces on the sides of the input and placing the data strip inside and pushing the plastic back down. But I am assuming you mean reconnect via your actual operating system. The easiest way is to enter the device manager, either through Control Panel on Windows Vista & 7 or through Control Panel, System, Hardware, and then Device Manager. A tab should be available for Keyboard. You may see a Yellow Triangle with an exclamation point, meaning that the driver is messed up. Double click on the Keyboard device button and go to the Driver Tab and Choose to Update the driver, and then choose automatically to search for updates. If your driver is already up to date, and you recently did a windows update, choose to rollback the driver instead. I hope this helps you, if it does not, I apologize and hope that you may solve your problem.
Hi. I have just worked out how to solve this as I had a similar problem. When you change the batteries of a Belkin Wireless Keyboard model F8E332ukBNDL you need to reconnect the keyboard to the wireless receiver that plugs into the USB port. To do this you press the 'Connect' button on the receiver and also press the green LED connect light at the top right of the keyboard - the one that flashes each time you press a key. I'm not sure in what combination you press these but I pressed them both and it worked.
