I was just typing in Firefox when my keyboard stopped working. I couldn't type in any program. After a reboot, however, my keyboard works fine.
Why would my keyboard spontaneously stop functioning? How could I determine the cause?
I do not have a wireless keyboard. I'm using only the embedded keyboard on my laptop.
Possible Windows 7 x64 issue? Or just a weird anomaly?
Note: If at all possible, I do not want to spend any money on taking it to a repair shop. It'd much rather have it fixed myself.
EDIT - 7/7/11: The function keys seem to be working. I can still toggle the backlight on my monitor with
Fn + F8.
