Howdyand welcome to GTG:

Have you tried a different keyboard - usb or PS/2?

Have you checked in Device Manager to see if anything in there has a red or yellow mark beside it?

thanks

i just checked the device manager, there's a yellow check besides on of them. it says :

Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)

Click 'Check for solutions' to send data about this device to Microsoft and to see if there is a solution available.

when i check it said they didnt find any solutions

sorry about the graammar stuff i hte the on screen keboard :)

Reload your USB drivers. They will either be on your Recovery/Restore cd (if you got one), on the systemboard driver cd, or at the manufacturers website.

Also, check in BIOS to see if they are enabled as well.

How did you reload the USB drives - or did you mean drivers?

What is the make and model of your computer?
