MIDI signal not going into Ableton

Hey guys! I haven't used my midi keyboard (nektar impact lx49) for a few months, and now that I thought it's time to crack it up and do some sessions on it, it's somehow not working. My cable is definitely plugged in, but the signal is not being received in Live (the orange square thingy on the top-right corner) which is very weird. It was definitely working a few months back. I'm sure I didn't make changes to the program or my pc which would affect anything in Live or the midi keyboard itself.

One thing I noticed is that the keyboard connected to the port is in red? I can't remember if it's always red or if its an error (and thus, hopefully causing the problem). An image has been attached.

Any help is very much appreciated! Thank you all
