1. Restart the computer

When your computer's keyboard suddenly stops working at the login screen, there may be different reasons: Windows was unable to recognize it, connect to it, or load the keyboard drivers correctly.

Also, make sure you haven't accidentally locked your keyboard with any key combination that can usually be accessed by pressing the Fn key.

3. Turn off Filter Keys

Right-click on the Start, open the Control Panel. Pick the Ease of Access → Change how your keyboard works and unmark the Turn on Filter Keys option.


4. Update keyboard drivers

1. Press Windows + R, then type “devmgmt.msc” and press Enter to open Device Manager.


2. Next, expand the keyboard, right-click on a standard PS / 2 keyboard and select Update Driver Software.

3. Now, first select the option Search automatically for updated driver software and complete the driver update process.

4. If the above mentioned does not solve the problem, select the second option Browse for driver software on your computer.
