keyoard works, but won't type onto document

First I would try restarting (turning off and back on) the computer. It may just be that program that is the issue. Should that not help, then try the following...

NOTE: If you need to type in a password to even get into Windows to do the following, make sure you attached an external keyboard first, to get past the password. Then disconnect the external keyboard and try the following...

1. Uninstall the keyboard driver.
2. Reboot the computer (without reinstalling the driver).
3. When it restarts, it should reinstall the driver on its own.

If this doesn't work, you may wish to try connecting/reconnecting an external keyboard and see if it works fine. If it does, then it could be the keys themselves that are the issue.

You may also want to try updating the Synaptics Driver if the above doesn't help.

I am trying to edit an existing text - was expanding it this a.m., but now - +- 7 hours later, it won't type my additions or corrections.
