I know why it's like that there are many possible reasons

1st : your plug are too shabby or if it's a wireless keyboard, batteries are down.
2nd : Try go go to Start menu / Control Panel / Ease of Access / Keyboard and uncheck all that is checked, then restart
3d : try using a (USB) keyboard if you can't afford it, when you start your computer press all the keys on the keyboard but make sure you press the following first : Num , Lock Caps Lock , Scroll Lock then try to press as much as possible util the Welcome screen pops up.

4th : If nothing still work you can still use the Visual keyboard (virtual keyboard or OSK / On Screen Keyboard) : Start button / All Programs / Accessories / Ease of Access / On-Screen Keyboard.

(Hope it helps)

Thank you, Laurence 199

change the batteries in the keyboard, or use a USB keyboard and download the drivers for your wireless keyboard.
if not detected yet try format new windows and install all driver

Go and right click on my computer and go to device manager and then see if there is anything that looks funky. it could be a driver problem for your usb (if that is the type of keyboard you are using) does any other device work on that port you are using? Could be a bad port, but I really doubt it
