Updated my kernel to Linux 4.17.0-2, and now my keyboard doesn't work

Hi there. This is my first time posting to the forum, so I hope I'm doing it right.

Anyways, I recently updated my kernel from Linux 4.14.48-2 to 4.17.0-2, and any time I boot up my laptop, my keyboard won't type. Oddly enough, my USB wireless keyboard works just fine.

I have a feeling it might be a firmware issue because when I tried to install Debian on this machine a few weeks ago, it wouldn't complete the installation due to requiring "non-open-source firmware".

Any and all advice is appreciated.

I was told that posting my inxi -Fxz might help:

Reboot and select your previous kernel in Grub menu.

You should be back to work.
