  1. Keyboard key not working unless pressed together with another key.


    Hello,

    The '2' key on my laptop stopped working properly a few days ago. Up till now, it would start working again when it's pressed very hard, and then it would work properly. But now, it has stopped working even when I press hard.

    I found out that if I press the 'W' key right below it while pressing the '2', then it would work normally, but not any other key.

    I tried uninstalling the drivers and restarting, but there was no difference.

    Is there anything I can do other than replace the keyboard?

    :)

  2. 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...

    Keyboard key not working unless pressed together with another key.

    Booting without press any key

    @dhievm go ahead and list the model number that gives exact specs/info.


    Does it stop right at the Toshiba logo and sit there? Will it sit forever til you press a key, or will it eventually work after so long?
