Hi, I am having a weird problem for the past few days. When I am working on my computer, All of a sudden, the keboard just decides to stop working. I would have to shutdown the computer, even switch off the power switch and then turn on everything again to make the keyboard work . Have any of you faced a similar problem and if so can you please share with me what is the solution for this. Thanks in advance, Raji.
Silly question, but have you tried just unplugging the keyboard and plugging it back in? I had a similar problem with my office workstation (a generic box) at my last job, and that usually got the keyboard recognized again.

Raji, of course amongst 50000 members we had all kind of problems. But, as for me, your description is very unclear. I would suggest to describe more exactly your problems. Do you mean that "magic button" (reboot) and everything make the keyboard operable again?
I have the same stupid problem! I was thinking if it might be a virus of some sort? Quirky, the danm keyboard would just stop responding, I push the space bar and it's like it's hitting CTR-F or something.... I've tried several different keyboards but same problem.
I'm about to launch this damn keyboard off my balcony... HELP!!!
I have seen this on 3 different PC's and have heard from several friends that have seen it too. It's real random and the keyboard just stops typing. The only thing I've found that fixes it, as others point out, is a reboot. <Cntl><alt><del> doesn't work, but the mouse still functions normally.
It doesn't happen a lot for me but often enough to be a pest.
