Microsoft Comfort Curve 2000 keyboad keys not working

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
When I am using my keyboard, the s, n, h, u, 8, -, and [ all stop working but then start working again. This morning after the computer was turned on for the first time, the keys were working, but after a few minutes the keys stopped working, so I turned on the on screen keyboard to finish typing. Then, I thought about figuring out which key don't work and before I was done, the keys were working again. So, I uninstalled a few HP printer programs and after the one restarted my computer, I went to type my password to log in and the keys did not work again. After that, I restarted my computer to see if the keys did not work in the bios and the keys did not work. Finally, when I logged onto my computer a few moments ago after I went into the bios, the keys were working fine, but then when I started to type this post, the keys stopped working and by the time I got done with the title, the keys started working again. It happened again midway to this point and currently the keys are not working.

Does this mean that this keyboard is junk or is there a way to fix it? Also switching USB ports does not fix it.
