  1. control key stops working for commands, how do i fix this?


    My control keys stop working for commands. i know its registering that im clicking them because no text comes out, and when i do ctrl+alt+del the screen pops up, but when i try to do something like ctrl+c it doesnt work. The only way to fix it that i know of is to restart, and then it breaks again soon enough that it would be a major inconvenience to try and restart every time it happens. does anyone have any idea how to fix this?

    :)

  3. Left Control Key Stopped Working After Windows Update

    Hi - I am facing an issue for the past few days after updating Windows 10(auto-update). Left Control key in Notebook keypad stopped working after the update and I have tried many steps suggested in various forums. None has worked so far, so hoping for some
    help here. Below are the steps I have already tried:

    1. Update Keyboard Driver

    2. Uninstall keyboard driver

    3. Complete any pending Windows update

    4. Make English US the default language & remove others.

    All these were suggested in various forums which have worked for others but none of these have solved the issue for me.
