Welcome to LQ

Remember that we don't see your machine.

Please tell us what kind of PC you have and which Linux distribution is installed on it.

And please elaborate what you mean by "keyboard not working". What do you see on the screen ? and which key did you press ?

If the machine is a deskop and the problem is anything more complicated than putting back a popped off key, getting a new keyboard is the best option.

If it's a laptop, try searching YouTube for "repair laptop keyboard."

In any case, it might be worth while to vacuum/spray out any dust.
