Keyboard flickering on and off, please help!

Hey guys, I have a problem and always come to this forum, however nothing I could find was helpful so I decided to ask.

I recently purchased a new wireless PCI adapter, which has been very good so far, however, after installing it my keyboard, every 2 minutes or so, will quickly flicker on and off, which causes loss of control in a game, or as I type in this forum, it makes it very difficult.

I have removed the Wireless card and the keyboard stopped flickering, so it is probably a conflict of some kind, I was wondering if there was any way to resolve this other than purchase a new wireless/keyboard, since they were both upwards of $80, and don't think the PSU is an issue, as it is 1000w and has no trouble with anything, and it's ONLY the keyboard, no other USB components.

I have installed all the newest drivers and changed the power cord on the keyboard with no avail.
Thanks in advance!

Specs of system:
12gb Corsair Dominator 1600mhz RAM
Intel i7 960 @ 3.20GHz
Nvidia GTX 580
Windows 7 64 bit.
