Try a system restore to a previous date when the computer was working fine. Please backup all your current DATA as you may lose them.

no model keyboard told so can not RTM to you.

Connecting a USB keyboard to my iMac

Adding the keyboard is one thing but without the correct driver, your pc will not be able to recognise it or make it usable. Check in your device list to see if it shows up and whether it is functioning. If not, you need to download the correct driver from the keyboard manufacturer.

How to connect the keybord

On your tablet, make sure bluetooth is turned on. Then on the keyboard, turn on the bluetooth button. They should automatically pair, but if not, the tablet should detect the keyboard and then choose it.

How do I Activate my keybord for my tablet?

go to settings of your tablet, and see if the keyboard is there, tick it to be your default keyboard.
else, you can also do this, tap message application, tap new message, tap the gear like button next to space bar at the left side of it, do note that sometimes, instead of the gear like button, it shows smilies or symbol, long tap it and it will lead you to your keyboard settings and tick your bluetooth keyboard.

Is it possible to add a wireless keybord on it by bluetooth ?

It is possible only if the wireless keyboard is Bluetooth-enabled. If it is not, i.e. the keyboard came with a USB receiver, it may still be possible to connect the keyboard to the phone if your phone is OTG-enabled (in which case you will have to get a micro USB-to-OTG cable or adapter).

IMac keyboard suddenly isn't working. Mouse works, but I can't enter any typed message.

if it's bluetooth, are the batteries ok and is it showing up in your bluetooth settings? if it's wired, try another usb port

Keyboard and mouse work only intermittently

yeah.. maybe you have a defective keyboard.. better look at your warranty now..
