    Hey Jamie,

    well the issue may actually be quite simple... It may very well be a keyboard fault and not neccesarily windows. So the first step to the process would be to actually test the keyboard. to do so, try plugging the keyboard into another computer, and seeing if you can use it or not, and likewise try plugging another keyboard into your computer, one that you definitely know that works, and testing that. Then you can go from there, to determine if it is a software or hardware issue. :)
