Taken from ehow. It works for me. Hope this help =)))
- Click on the Control Panel.
Go into the "Accessibility" options.
Open the tab labeled "Keyboard".
Make sure none of the boxes have a check in them. If the laptop has Microsoft Vista as the operating system, go to the "Ease of Access" option and go to "Change how your keyboard works." (Mine says "make the keyboard easier to use) Make sure none of the boxes in that section are checked.
Click the "Save" button.
Exit the Control Panel and begin typing to see if the keyboard is now working.
