My computer wanted to update, so I installed the updates and restarted my computer, when it booted up, it immediatly said "keyboard failure" and my keyboard stopped working. I unplugged it, plugged it back in, I tried different USB ports and neither of those worked.

My keyboard is fine because I plugged it in to my dads computer (the one I'm on right now) and it works fine, it's only my computer it's not working on.

I have a Dell XPS 400 computer and the keyboard is just the default USB keyboard that came with it.

Oh, and my USB ports are working, I'm charging my phone on one, external harddrive on another, and my wireless mouse on a 3rd and they are all working. (I tried to plug the keyboard into those ones too and it still doesn't work)

Try the keyboard from your Dads PC on yours. Does it work?

Fixed.

I shut off my computer, unplugged everything, drained the power from it, and restarted it. Now it works

It sounded like you had a whole lot of USB stuff going on at once.

It may have been putting a load on the PS.
