I have a dell laptop and had this happen to me. It's a simple solution, your "Fn lock" is swithed on. Hold down the Fn button and hit Num lock. Now your other keys should be working rather than the blue keys. Hope it helps
The keyboard reqires no drivers. If the keyboard stops working, then it is a problem with your BIOS, the motherboard, or the keyboard. My money is on the keyboard. Just be sure that the keyboard does not work at all, as in, it doesnt work on startup. If it does, then it might just be a Windows related issue.
