    Enter and Backspace sometimes don't work


    Hi everyone, for the past few months my enter and backspace keys sometimes don't work. I am running Windows 1909 on a Dell G7. I have tried uninstalling the drivers and restarting, but I have not tried completely reinstalling windows as I have been really busy using my computer. As of lately the problem is starting to get worse and unbearable. I noticed when they don't work, they also don't work in the BIOS however the key still lights up on the keyboard. My laptop has run out of warranty and they have referred me to their un-warrantied support team. I can't afford to be spending a bunch of money on this and don't wanna destroy my laptop by taking it apart. Is there any other options?

    Edit: Also just noticed they both start to work if I press down on one of them with extreme pressure. Maybe the wiring is loose and I can somehow secure it? I can't seem to find any tutorials on how to do so with my laptop though.

    :)

  2. Backspace and Enter not working

    Hi Chriso,

    Ive tried uinstalling the keyboard from device manager twice now and sadly it hasnt helped. As you will probably notice now, my apostrophe button wasnt working either so i can rule out that the buttons are worn becuase i have never used the apostrophe button
    anymore than the enter and backspace.

    Also can i note, this problem has existed for some time, however before, the enter and backspace would start working after about half an hour of use so i dismissed it but now its still not working.

    I appreciate your help but I havent found the solution yet

  3. Why does my Enter and Backspace act weirdly?


    I have an Asus X540-YA laptop, and sometimes when I press the Backspace, instead of deleting the character, it writes down the combination of "74321", and sometimes some dots as well. Same thing with my Enter, sometimes it just types "nbz" instead of jumping
    a line when typing. I have tried to restore my Windows 10 the the original settings and re-install a driver ASUS sent me, but it did not help. Any suggestions what could cause it, or what could I do?
