After a VNC session (connecting to my computer) the keyboard on my computer will not work. I can type my password to login (in kdm) but after I get to the desktop, I can't type anything anywhere. I'm not sure if the VNC session had anything to do with it but... I rebooted a couple times but it still won't work. Any ideas?

PS2. Though I did plug in a USB keyboard but it didn't work either. I also ran vxconf, no change.

The only thing I can think of is mayby the VNC controller installed a different driver set for the keyboard. I've seen it happen in the past, and it really mucks things up. Although, isn't the standard  PS2 connections controlled by the kernel and not x.config?

The stuff about the USB Multimedia Keyboard is probably when I tried plugging in a USB keyboard.

That's strange, because I also see the PS/2 keyboard getting loaded as well..

input: AT Translated Set 2 keyboard as /class/input/input3

And you're still getting a "non-response" with both types of keyboard?

Doesn't look like there's been a driver change, and dmesg pretty much shows everything loading as it should. I'm grasping at straws here. Have you checked the BIOS?

OH! Does either keyboard have batteries in them?

I haven't checked or changed the BIOS recently but I don't think that's the problem since I can type my password to login. Neither keyboard needs batteries.

Found it! The solution was to turn off "Slow Keys" in the K control center. I think they had been activated by me accidentally holding down the shift key for 8 sec on the remote machine.

Wow. I'd have NEVER thought to look in there.  Shocked
