My keyboard works fine untile I try to launch Steam or untile I play other games with gamepad. That was problem on Win 7, and than I've installed Win 10 and still have same problem. I've tried to use another usb port and another keyboard but nothing.

The problem might be caused due to the gamepad. I myself have a Xbox One controller set up aside from my keyboard and when I switch from one another, there are some side effects e.g., When I play GTA V (with my controller) and I switch to PUBG. PUBG shows the controller keys instead of the keyboard keys. My theory is that your Gamepad blocks the input of your keyboard. My solution to this was to manually disable the controller when I am done with it (I know, a bit tricky). SOLUTION: Go to Control Panel--> Devices and Sounds--> Devices and Printers. You should see your Gamepad between those devices. Right click on it and delete the device. Whenever you feel the need to play with your Gamepad again, just repplug the gamepad back into the USB-Port.

Than you for reply, but unfortunately that is not problem, I have 5 HID keyboard devices listed in keyboard propertis --> hardwear, and when i delete all and restart my pc it makes 5 again. Can that be issue?

First of all. DON'T RESTART IT. That resets it. Second of all: Try figuring out which one is the Gamepad. Just delete every single on of them until the Gamepad doesn't respond anymore or in my case doesn't light up anymore.

Could you explain a bit more? In your original question you stated that you had problems with your keyboard while Steam was running or after playing games with the Gamepad.
