USB Keyboard not working after unplug until reboot

Hi Folks,

I'm having the same problem as this thread:
USB Keyboard not working after unplug until reboot

Unfortunately there doens't seem to be a solution.

My USB keyboard stops working after is it unplugged from my ThinkPad W520. The keyboard still has power and still shows up in device manager but no keys are accepted.

The built-in keyboard still works fine.

Can anyone help me?
