Laptop keyboards use the generic windows driver. You shouldn't need a different one. Your USB keyboard also uses the generic keyboard driver supplied with windows, but relies on a functioning USB driver.

I assume you are posting this on a different computer, and thus your ability to type, but what makes you think you need such a driver?

If they keyboard is not functioning, can you use the mouse still? If so, RIGHT CLICK MY COMPUTER,choose PROPERTIES, choose HARDWARE tab, choose DEVICE MANAGER, choose KEYBOARD...choose REMOVE.

Reboot. Windows will reload the driver on reboot.

Most of the time, though, this is a hardare problem, especially with laptops. The connector between the laptop and motherboard is usually a paper thin connecton that is prone to breakdown
