Re: keyboard not working

Things to try:
- reboot
- another USB-port
- this keyboard on another PC
- another keyboard on this PC

If no keyboard works on this PC on any USB port after rebooting, it's a warranty issue.

Re;

you can try to disconnect it and connect it back on the fly. USB connections are plug and play, so if you are running Windows and your USB keyboard doesn't work, you can try unplugging and plugging it back to re-establish the communication, or simply try connecting it to another USB port
