Just checking, it seems like something is still wrong on this computer. just using a standard plain usb keyboard. All of a sudden this morning, when she was changing a plain ordinary mouse, the keyboard quit working. it works on another computer. the mouse works, while using the same usb port. in device manager, there is no entry for Keyboard. in devices and printers, way down at the bottom, a "usb multimedia" keyboard shows, but when I try to look at the drivers, there are several drivers, and I cannot delete, or disable any. Looking at the HID compliant consumer control device driver details, there are no drivers. Device Manager/Keyboard: shows keyboard. there are speed settings, but in the hardware tab, no name, manufacturer, location or device status. Just in case, with all of the problem we have had lately, I did some scans. the dss scan seems strange. Is it? mbam Windows 7 Service Pack 1 x64 NTFS Internet Explorer 9.0.8112.16421 Motherboard: FOXCONN | | 2AB1 Processor: AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 840T Processor | CPU 1 | 783/200mhz . ==== Disk Partitions ========================= .
