I had this issue myself on one of my systems. windows isn't loading up a specific background process so you'll need to do it manually.
Navigate to your C:\Windows\System32 folder and locate ctfmon.exe and copy and paste a shortcut for it into your startup folder. You can access this folder quickly by pressy Win+R and typing Shell:StartUp and pressing enter.

Restart computer and keyboard inputs will work now.

My laptop is acer aspire F15. My problem is exactly the same as:

My keyboard isn't working for my acer laptop using windows 10 when I try to enter a wi-fi password or in the "Search Windows".

But when I typing letters or numbers in Windows and excel it works.
