    The shortcut keys work but nothing else does, not even the keypad.

    The keyboard works in other computers that i've plugged it in to.

    Is is there a setting that's not right in the BIOS?

    Nah, sounds more like a driver problem in Windows. Try plugging it into a different USB port, and/or running Microsoft Update to see if there is an updated driver for it.

    It had something to do with sticky keys. Everything is working now.

    Ah. Don't repeatedly tap the Shift key anymore.
