  1. Certain keys not working on multiple keyboard on the same pc


    Recently I had noticed that the period key on my logitech keyboard (cant remember the name of it) had stopped working but the period key on the num pad was working just fine, I then ordered i Ducky One 2 mini and the period key doesnt work on my pc but works on other pc's, i then tried the digital keyboard built into windows and the period key doesnt work for that either

  2. Certain keys on the keyboard are not working properly.

    Hi Russell,

    Thank you for posting your question in the Microsoft Community.

    I understand that certain keys on the keyboard are not working properly on the pc. I will try to help you with this issue.

    Please answer these questions to get more clarity on this issue:


    • Did you make any changes to the pc prior to this issue?

    • Have you installed all pending updates on the pc?

    • Have you performed a full pc virus scan on the system recently?

    Suggest you to launch the on-screen keyboard to check if the issue persists.

    Follow these steps to launch the On-screen keyboard:


    • Press “Windows key + R” to get the run window.

    • Type “osk” and hit enter to launch the On-screen keyboard and check if this helps.

    Also suggest you to install any pending Windows updates on the pc to check if that helps.
    Updates are additions to software that can help prevent or fix problems, improve how your computer works, or enhance your computing experience.

    Further, you may also boot the computer in a clean boot state and check if the issue persists. When you start Microsoft Windows, typically there are several programs that start automatically and run in the background that may interfere with the system.
    These programs may include antivirus and system utility programs. When you perform a clean startup procedure, you prevent these programs from starting automatically.

    Note: After you have finished troubleshooting, follow the steps under “How to reset the computer to start as usual after troubleshooting with clean boot” in the article to boot to normal startup.

    Keep us informed to help you further.

  3. Keyboard Volume Keys not working while in-game

    I happen to have used the Tt Challenger Pro keyboard in the past, and the volume keys worked flawlessly in every game, so it's indeed a weird problem. I would suggest the same thing sneekypeet suggested, using the keyboard software and assign this function to a hotkey, but you said that didn't work either, so yeah...
