My chromebook's keyboard will not work after 2 months.  Maybe there is a setting that I have to deal with?

    Try booting into recovery mode to see if the keyboard works when the OS isn't yet loaded. If that works then maybe a quick power wash will clear it up.

    I am new to chrome book. Do you have time to write more detailed instructions? Booting into recovery mode? Power wash?

    also having a kb issue - some of the middle row keys (a-'), and most of the bottom row keys except B & N, didn't work.  (in other words, B & N do work.  rest of the keys don't, including alt & ctl).  there has never been a spill & the area under the keys is clean.  i did a powerwash.  all middle & upper keys work now.  bottom row is unchanged.  what's next - do i have to do a full restore next?  if so can i do it without a place to store the OS?

    There is likely either something dirty between the layers in the keyboard, or damage to one or more that affects the traces. Not an easy fix though, any chance you are still in warranty?
