Keyboard not working with Ableton?

So I've spent days now trying to figure out how to fix this. The keyboard shows up in my MIDI setup under preferences, I've messed with everything. The keyboard magically worked once, and now I can't figure out how to get it to work again. Does anyone know how to fix this?

I've got an Alesis QX49 keyboard.

    Few things you have to check:
    - driver/script installed correctly. Select the type under preferences/midi and make sure input output and type are set up correctly.
    - cables connected correctly, device settings set up correctly (manual).
    - load a midi instrument, click on the 'arm' button under that track and play the keyboard.
    If set up correctly, this should work.
