Keys on my Keyboard on my desktop stopped working

Keyboard K-0316
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

I was typing in Word and must have hit some keys by mistake and now none of the keys on the keyboard seem to work.  The mouse works fine, but the keys don't.  Any suggestions?

Hello;

Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!

Sorry for the obvious question, but have you shut down the PC completely (powering it off), then restarted it, and STILL have the problem with the keyboard?

 

I sometime get typing quickly and hit F11 or F12 and that really hoses things up!

 

My suggestion is that you go out and get a $10 generic USB keyboard and see if that works.  I have a relative with an HP desktop that ran into similar problems, and when we swapped in a $10 generic USB keyboard, the problems went away!


Good Luck
