Thank you
Keyboards are like $10US. If you want to make certain it is the keyboard, ask your neighbor to borrow theirs for test.

Thanks, since the old keyboard responded when the computer was booting up, I didn't think that was the problem. I was able to log in using the on-screen keyboard. Then I checked the device settings. It confirmed that there was a problem with a USB connection. I dug out an old wireless keyboard, changed the batteries, and, thanks to your suggestion, I can pay my electric bill.

Thanks again,
Jim K
