I'm having a wierd problem that is driving me crazy. The other day I
was using my computer without a problem. I stepped away for about 30
minutes and left it on and when I came back my keyboard wasn't working.
The keyboard I use is a Microsoft Optical Desktop Bluetooth. It
includes a keyboard and mouse, that both connect through a USB
bluetooth transeiver. So, I tried restarting my computer and it the
keyboard still did not work. However, the mouse works fine.
So, I tried rebooting and checking the BIOS and the keyboard wouldn't
work there either.
I then borrowed a wired PS2 keyboard and was able to get into the BIOS,
but once Windows started, EVEN THE PS2 keyboard doesn't work!
I then tried changing the USB transeiver to every different USB board
available on my machine and none of it worked.
Why won't ANY keyboard work on my computer????
I can't even get into Windows because it is password protected and I
have no way to get around this.
