I would think this more likely a hardware problem.

Try booting a LiveUSB of the same version of Peppermint you installed with .. if the keys don't work in the Live session (yet they did when you installed), it's obviously a hardware problem.

If the keys DO work in the live session, at least you've ruled hardware out.
