Windows 7: Keyboard always stops working

1. OK, so we ruled out the mouse (finally)!
2. Anytime I buy electronics, I give it 50/50 chance of working out of the box. But I am not saying your keyboard is broken. Using a different keyboard may tell us if there is something specific about that particular model and how it is configured with your hardware/software. It is just the easiest thing to do, change to a different keyboard and see what happens.
3. Do you have a friend you can try your keyboard in their computer?
Yes, something may be "wrong" with your pc, but to troubleshoot, you have to try different things to rule them out. Or take the keyboard to another computer to help determine.

Ok, I will try these things and write back.

I discovered something new about my problem. When I was saying that my keyboard stops working, it wasn't really like that. Green light is still on when my keyboard "stops working", but... I found that when it happens to my keyboard, I just push buttons and nothing happens, but, yesterday I tried something new. When I'm pushing button very hard and holding it at the same time, then my keyboard starts writing, but, in that way it's almost impossible to write something. Maybe this will help finding solution for my big problem.

And one more thing. My friend came to me because he needed some games for PSP, so I downloaded them. After that he gave me USB connection to his PSP and when I plugged in to my PC usb2.0, message came out which said USB device not recognized, the same message when I plugged my keyboard to usb 2.0. When I plugged usb connection with PSP to my pc to usb3.0, drivers were installed succesfully. Maybe this could help finding solution for my problem.

After that, I gave my keyboard to my friend and he tested it on his computer and on his pc it was the same as on my pc and after that test he plugged in his keyboard, which isn't usb, i think it was ps2 or how it is called, and when he plugged in his own keyboard, it started not to work as mine, but after restarting pc he said that his keyboard is working fine again. Very, very strange...

But it's strange. I bought a new keyboard and it was the same as with old one, buy maybe because they were both the same.

and one more thing. very, very strange thing. when i trie to write with both hands, keyboard doesn't work, but when i hold my hand near mouse or on it and write with one hand, keyboard works. but it happens very often. maybe thats why my keyboard doesn't stop working while gaming, because i always use mouse.
