Sudden Keyboard Problem

Specs: XP Home, Core 2 Duo, 2Gb

My son has been happily using the Mac aluminium keyboard with XP Home for gaming. Today XP would not respond to keystrokes - he just cannot even enter his user password. Keyboard works fine on a neighbouring Mac, Keyboard has mouse plugged into it via USB that XP accepts (so keyboard is connected).

Another keyboard (logitech) works on the PC (all USB ports). Mouse works via the Mac keyboard when the logitech keyboard is also working.

No change to software or hardware so what is the likely problem? Any ideas how to get this working for my son again???

I would check and see that the keyboard driver is ok.
Start..control panel...systems...hardware..
devise manager...keyboard. If yellow mark, right click and re install driver.

Hope this helps.
