Some Keys not Working

Here's my problem: the "L" key stopped working on my keyboard. So I switched out for another keyboard. On THAT keyboard several number keys (not the keypad) are not working. (5 and 6 are). Both keyboards work fine on other computers. On Screen Keyboard all keys work fine. The same keys do not work in the BIOS setup either. I've checked for viruses and malware. All clean. I've uninstalled and reinstalled drivers. I've switched the keyboard to another USB port. So now I'm stumped. Suggestions?

  1. Problem solved: There was one step I missed in the diagnostics. I created a new user and the keyboard worked fine in that. I can't understand how that can be since it was being weird in the BIOS, but so far it's working ok. I still don't know WHAT was wrong, but at least I'm up and running again.
