Keyboard not working in Windows
Posted on 2011-02-14
One day my USB keyboard stoped working in Windows, it works before Windows starts loading, and it works on other computers, which leads to the conclusion that the problem is with my Windows installation.
In the device manager under keyboards it shows two yellow exclamation marks, "Standard 101/102-key or Microsoft Natural Ps/2 Keyboard" and "HID Keyboard Device".
Under properties it shows "Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)".
Uninstalling and reinstalling the keyboard doesn't solve the problem, neither does rebooting w/ last known good configuration.
How can I fix this issue w/o reformmating and doing a clean install (I tried a upgrade install and of course it didn't help).
btw I'm running XP sp3.
All help is welcome!
