I tried using a non-usb keyboard thinking that maybe the USB drivers were reset or something and that doesn"t work either.
When i tried restarting in safe-mode, I found that the computer recognized the keyboard(or at least the F8 key to get into safemode and scroll through the list of start-up options). Once Windows started up and prompted for my password the keyboard was turned off again.
EDIT: I played around with restarting and all a bit more. The keyboard numlock capslock lights up when the computer first starts up and the keyboard is functional through BIOS and all. Once the Windows operating system logo comes up the keyboard becomes nonfunctional.
When the comp was starting up I turned on numlock which stayed on the entire time. When the windows login screen came up the numlock was still on but the keyboard didn't work. I unpluged and repluged in the keyboard and the numlock light went off then didn't come back on when i repluged it in.
Also I tried resetting BIOS to default settings but that was ineffective.
I could try to use Windows Recovery Console to go back to a prior setting but I just recently got a virus off my computer so I'm not sure if a rollback will ressurect that also or not.
I have seen some postings on other forums about letting to computer find the mouse/keyboard and install appropriate drivers. Is there anyway to do that without having to log-in with a password?
