Hello, guys
I have a desktop computer (Windows 7), and the keyboard won't type anything. It works fine on another computer. When I try to type on my computer, the computer makes boob sounds but cannot come out anything. I'm wondering if I accidentally hit some combination of keys or something that made it so my computer wouldn't process what I type. So is there a way to fix this? Thanks

Well, i have the same problem. I have tried numerious USB keyboards and wireless keyboards. Mouse works but not the keyboard. I am wondering if some time of virus or malware is causing this.

Go to control panel. Then, change the keyboard settings to this.
-Turn off mouse keys
-Turn off filter keys
-Everything else keep on

Just hold the right shift key for 8 sec and it will work fine!
