If anyone is interested I found an article on the internet that suggested
plugging into different USB port and it worked.
The volume buttons on the keyboard work fine now.
It forced windows to reinstall the human interface drivers or whatever it
does when you plug into a different USB port.
Don't know why it failed to begin with, though.
Although the driver still fails to load at startup.
