Try plugging it into a different USB port.

Check that you have the correct driver for it, it may not be installing the driver on its own.

Is it broken? See if it works with a different computer.

If plugging it into a different USB port doesn't work, try using a different USB cable. Your driver may also not be correctly installed; check this link for the correct driver. If it doesn't connect to your computer but connects to another computer, it's possible that the USB port in your computer has lost connection with the computer's motherboard; if so, you'll need to open up your computer and re-attach the internal USB cable with the motherboard. Search iFixit for instructions on how to do this with your computer. You can check the troubleshooting guide for your device for more information.

The same issue with a Cooler Master TK Storm Stealth. I made the fatal mistake of buying it, because it was a cheaper mechanical keyboard, that only just after a year has started to malfunction. I could buy a much better CPU if I would buy an usual one, now it's to late. Cooler Master it's excellent in cooling devices, computer cases and power supplies, but have no idea howto make a reliable keyboard or mouse.

The problem is the usb port on the keyboard itself. You have to dismantle the keyboard and solder the pins better. Had the same problem with my wacom intuos 4 too. Apparently robotized welding isn't meant to handle such forces of connecting and disconnecting at any pressure.
