    I have a problem with Windows 7. The keyboard stopped working form when I install VMware and uninstall it. In the BIOS it works fine. When I use a
    Linux partition (starting from DVD, "Knoppix") it works also fine. Also at bootloader leval its ok.
    But at Windows 7 it stopps working. Does not matter which keyboard I use -USB or PS/2.

    The USB
    driver works propperly.



    Any help is highly recomened.

    Hi

    For a start uninstall your keyboard in Windows Device Manage then reboot and let it reinstall it.
    If it asks about drivers, tell it to search online.

    I assume that you already tried other USB ports.

    Try running sfc /scannow from the prompt (run as administrator).

    I sometimes have my keyboard stop working in Windows 7, I can usually get it working by either unplugging it and plugging it back in or rebooting. But I've never had it just quit working and not start again.
