Method #2: Drivers Drivers Drivers
You may have heard of drivers before when looking up troubleshooting methods for other devices, but if you haven't, here's a quick rundown: Drivers are the piece of software that tell your computer how to handle your hardware, so that when you plug in, say, a webcam, it knows where to look and how to interpret the signals it gets from the camera. The same applies to keyboards. So why could this cause your keyboard not to work?
- Right click on "My Computer" and select the "Hardware" tab
- Click on "Device Manager" and look on the left-hand side of the window for the list of devices
- Find the "Keyboards" section, expand it, and find your keyboard.
- Right click on the keyboard and select "Update Drivers"
- When the prompt box appears, simply choose option of letting your computer search for drivers as opposed to finding them yourself. After the search completes, continue to follow the on-screen instructions and then close it when it finishes.
