Alert! Keyboard Initialization Failure

I have the Dell Inspirion 3650, My computer was perfectly fine before today, I boot up my compter and I get a message saying "Alert! Keyboard Initialization Failure" I have the Corsair K70 Rapidfire, I can go into the BIOS but I can't move around in it because the keyboard isn't working, although the lights on my keyboard do shine, please help:

RE: Alert! Keyboard Initialization Failure

Is this a wireless or USB keyboard?

If it uses batteries, have you replaced those?

If it's USB, have you tried a different rear USB port?

What happens if you connect this keyboard to a different PC? In other words, has the keyboard failed?
