    KEYBOARD NOT WORKING


    My laptop keyboard works perfectly fine in bios but does not work in windows. Only some specials keys work like FN+F5 to F8 which controls brightness airplane mode,etc. Function + up down key are also working which controls backlight brightness. I have reinstalled keyboard drivers, run troubleshooter, set bios to default, checked sticky keys settings and even reset my pc with both keep my files and complete reset. What should I do now??
