Try run Windows Update and download and install all updates.
Open start and search for feedback and open the Feedback Hub app and report this issue.
I know it is difficult with virtual keyboard, but you may add brief explanation about keyboard not working.



I have done all the possible ways , still the issue Is same. So I have downgraded to previous version. I have reported to feedback hub also they said to contact here. So i posted here. That update is insider program( Pre release)

Have you tried performing a Clean Boot?
Have a look at:
Have you tried uninstalling the keyboard driver and reinstalling it?

Just now got one More update it is fixed. Thanks for yr help :raising_hands:
So, the update has solve the issue, is that correct?



I continue the have the same or similar problem. Surface Pro X 1st gen works fine with an external keyboard in the dock, but if I attache the Type Cover my screen on the Surface turns off, will come back on if I removed it. If I boot with it connected Windows Hello will not active the camera until I remove it. And if I get into Windows 11 with attached I cannot type or see any lights on the keyboard, but the Surface does detect it. Ordered a new Type Cover to see if my issue is the keyboard itself, but it feel like the recent updates messed me up. I am on the Beta track now and have all available updates.

Glad, thank you for sharing.
Thank you for sharing.
It is better to ask a new question.
I also recommend post your issue on the Surface forum:
