Keyboard stopped working but works on different user!

Ah please help me this is bizarre and driving me the up the wall!

I was playing a game then noticed keyboard wasn't working, randomly! I exited using mouse and found keyboard wasn't working in windows at all. I rebooted and got the same result.

Ive tried a different keyboard and it does the same.

What is odd is it works at the login screen, if I log in to my other acount its fine! yet on my normal user account it doesn't work

Tried driver reinstalling, system restore and msconfig to start up in diagnostic.

Any ideas?
Oh please someone must have an idea?!
Thanks
David

Try removing the drivers and rebooting. Control Panel>Device Manager.

Thanks for your replies but god I feel stupid!

I found the issue. Somehow Filter Keys was turned on, must have been during a game due to pressing of keys..

I can't believe it!!!

No need to feel stupid at all. I'm sure this will help someone out at some point. You're right though, it's so simple it's painful. It's amazing how we overlook the simplest settings and dive straight in with more complex solutions isn't it!?
