If the keyboard port is a PS/2 port, and the keyboard has been un-plugged and plugged in with the PC running, the port may be damaged.

If the keyboard uses a USB port, it will not work with most versions of Windows 95, and Windows NT.

Further,the keyboard MUST be plugged in when the PC boots so that the BIOS can detect it.

If it is a PS2 keyboard, make sure it is plugged into the right port. The mouse and keyboard ports are very easy to confuse.

Ergonomic has nothing to do with the problem.

If it is a USB keyboard try plugging it into another USB port.

Unplug it for a while (a couple of hours), then try it again. If a couple of hours of "rest" makes it work, but then it fails again, you have a bad keyboard.
