Windows 7/64 HPremium.

Had this myself. At first I cleaned out the KB as best I could: started by unplugging it after switching off the PC, turned the KB upside-down and (not with force) tapped the base over a sheet of paper, all along the base. Lots of tiny bits of gunge and dust fell out. Then I used a can of air with the thin pipe installed, and blew along (not directly down into) the channels between keys. The KB worked perfectly again for about 6 months, then died and could not be brought to life. I replaced it with a Logitech K290 and regularly carry out the upside down routine.

TIP: if sandwiches and coffee fall out when you do this, you have to stop eating at your desk!
