Have you unplugged the keyboard and plugged it back in?

How long have you have the keyboard for, and has anything untoward happened to it (a spillage, maybe)? Possibly it's just failed... so you have any other keyboards that you could try, to check whether the issue is isolated to the one keyboard?
This is all assuming that unplugging it and plugging back in doesn't work, of course!Last edited by Illusionary; 30-12-2010 at 00:39.

Keyboards are pretty cheap and aren't indestructable. I think you should just get a new one. That is, of course, if unplugging / replugging into a different USB port and restarting your computer doesn't fix it.
Oh and test the keyboard on another computer, even a laptop, to see if it is the keyboard which is not working or your computer.
