The keyboard is not recognized under either Linux or
Windoze, but the USB wiring is good, because your
mouse being recognized. Hmm, my first instinct would
be to replace the keyboard with another like model and
see if there isn't a physical problem with the
hardware. It could be bad but still passing along the
USB signal from the mouse.

I'd also try a different model USB keyboard just for
giggles. I believe the key is that the keyboard
doesn't work under either OS.
