One of my kids was doing what she always does on the PC (Windows 7, about two months old), and the keyboard stopped working. I replaced it, and get the same behavior on both machines:
type: you get: a a b gtv c dec d dec e dec f gtv g gtv h jun i i j jun k dec l [-l m m n jun o [-l p p q q r r s <nothing> t gtv u jun v gtv w ws x <nothing> y y z <nothing>
digits work fine most punctuation is bad too
The MS troubleshooter utility (Mats_run.devices.exe) found nothing.
The system is set for the en-US keyboard.
The on-screen keyboard works fine, which is how I managed to log back in.
I can't find keyboard drivers on Microsoft's site, and I don't want to download a friggin keyboard driver from some dodgy 3rd-party site. Is there a better way to fix this,or is it a job for Roto Rooter?
