since the mouse is working, try going to the device manager then uninstall the entry under keyboards. Restart the computer and windows should automatically install the native keyboard driver.

assuming this is a USB keyboard...
how long are you waiting for windows to recognize this keyboard before being convinced it wont work?
sometimes it may take up to a minute or two for windows to recognize the keyboard
