Sounds like corrupted drivers since other keyboards show the same problem. The immediate action procedurs is quite simple.
Go back into Device manager and double click on your keyoard entry - this opens the properties panel. Select 'Drivers', then 'Uninstall drivers'. You will get a warnig or two, accept them and the drivers will be uninstalled. Then do a re-boot. Windows will install a fresh set of drivers when it starts up. This usually fixes this problem, if it doesn't, post back.
I am going to be away on holiday until the 13th May. While I expect to have internet access my time on-line may well be limited and PMs may not be replied to as quickly as normal.

Still no luck. Under keyboard it lists "hid keyboard device". Under other devices it lists "unknown device" and "usb keyboard" twice.

Get a DVD or USB or the Windows 10 install using the Media Creation Tool. Follow the below video. The video shows how to use the registry backups in the Regback folder and copy them to the config folder.
Following the below steps may get you to the Advanced Boot Options for a command prompt which would allow you to skip using the install disk.
Edit: The above may or may not get you a keyboard. Using the Install disk will give you keyboard access. Using the install disk may present you will different drive letters for the OS. Using the below command at the command prompt of the install disk will give you the correct letter.
Bcdedit /enum | find "osdevice"

Problem is solved thanks you JohnC_21. PC is working again. That was a hell of a lot easier than some of the things other were telling me to do on other forums.
