    I understand your concern and will assist you to resolve this issue

    Method 1: Run the
    Hardware and devices troubleshooter.

    • Press Windows key +X, select Control panel.

    • Change the view by option on the top right to Large icons.

    • Click on troubleshooting and click on the view all option on the left panel.

    • Run the Hardware and devices troubleshooter.
    Method 2.Try updating the latest keyboard devices from the manufacturer's website and check if the issue persists.

    Follow the steps to update the Keyboard drivers:

    a. Press Windows key + X key and click Device Manager.

    b. Expand the Keyboard driver.

    c. Right-click on the HID Keyboard Device and click on Update driver software.

    If the above methods didn't work, we suggest that you uninstall all keyboard drivers. For you to uninstall the keyboard, follow the steps below:

      and then select Device Manager.
    • In the list of hardware categories, find the keyboard that you want to completely uninstall.
    • Right click on it, select Properties and then select
      Uninstall
      .
    • If the computer prompts you restart, do so.
    • If computer prompts you to restart, Windows will automatically install a generic keyboard driver.
    • Then update the keyboard drivers to the manufacturer of your device to update the latest keyboard driver.

    Please keep us updated for us to assist you further.
