Hi,

I have a pretty weird problem. My keyboard stopped working today. It works fine to navigate the system's BIOS menus, but as soon as Windows boots, the lights on the keyboard turn off and I cannot use it.

Device Manager shows 3 "HID Keyboard" devices under the keyboard category. I have tried uninstalling them and rebooting. I have also tried re-installing my motherboard's chipset. Other keyboards have the same problem with this PC.

I noticed that if I uninstall the "HID Keyboard Device" and re-plugin the keyboard, then the "HID Keyboard Device" reappears, so it seems Windows detects something from the keyboard being connected.

Any ideas? It seems pretty bizarre. The really weird thing is it came totally out of the blue. I was playing a video game when I noticed that it was a problem. It worked fine earlier today.

[SOLVED]

I tried many things. In the end, here is the solution that worked for me:
  1. Right-click "This PC" and go to Properties
  2. Select "System protections" on the left
  3. Click the button that reads "System Restore..." and follow the wizard
