You may need to install keyboard driver, or try another keyboard.

Go Start>Run, type in:
regedit
Click OK.

In Registry Editor, navigate to:
HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layouts
It should look like this:

Create restore point.
Download attached keyboard_layouts.zip file.
Unzip it.
Right click on keyboard_layouts.reg, click "Merge".
Accept registry merge.
Restart computer, and see, if you're still getting Incompatible keyboard driver detected error.
