I can use the on screen keyboard, tried changing keyboards, no good

I'm thinking display adapters/drivers?? just an educated guess

except for black screen and no keyboard typing (makes a clicking sound only)

pc is usable, 


Help???/ Please......


ok, 1 day later, solved both issues. but the black screen issue reoccurred next morning after solving? 


issue 1; the black screen, some how this pc enabled "high contrast resolution"  by itself? and repeated it again overnight?? I don't know if this is going to be a reoccurring issue??


easy fix once we understand, go to personalize > themes, then select a windows theme, or any I guess, done


Issue 2, keyboard not working,  once I determined it wasn't necessarily the same issue as #1, I could google 'CAN'T TYPE WINDOWS 10"  led me to turning off filter keys, YAY!! back to normal


but What the...??  why did this happen??/? 


And here's the kicker, came into office this morning, My back up note book "BLACK SCREEN, CAN'T TYPE!!!!!"


Fortunately same exact fix. notebook was windows 8 btw????


again What the...? someone screwing with me?? I doubt it???


thx anyway!!
