Acer all in one computer and wireless keyboard. Keyboard not working. I think it's something on the computer...

Changed batteries on wireless keyboard. The top keys, volume, messages, etc work. I cannot type on computer though.
I have a wired keyboard and plugged that in. It says device is ready and working, but I still cannot type.

Additional info-Mouse works fine, still can click through things

I'm assuming there is something on computer preventing this. Any ideas??

Thank you
After researching what seemed like forever (thanks for helping >_<) I resolved the issue, decided to post for anyone who is also banging their heads against the wall.

Go to control panel>ease of access>change how your keyboard works

Uncheck any of the following that are currently checked:
Mouse keys
Sticky keys
Filter keys

For me, the "turn on filter keys" was checked. Once I unchecked it I was able to type.

Hope this helps!
