Q: No USB Keyboards work. HID Keyboard Device will not install. Says No Driver Found.

I just recently bought a new keyboard, it's just a generic USB Keyboard there's nothing fancy about it.  It's an HP Elite USB Keyboard, and my Windows 7 system will not recognize it.  I thought it was just the keyboard because I have had several other USB devices connected to the machine so I tried another USB keyboard and that one did the same thing.  "windows was unable to install the driver". When I try to manually go in and install HID Keyboard Driver it comes back and says this device cannot start code 10. Right now i'm using an old ps/2 keyboard and would like to use my usb keyboard.  It works in the BIOS, or any other OS but the one that's installed.  I really do not want to do a fresh install as I have many games and stuff saved on this install. The keyboard does work on any other computer I plug it into.
