  2. 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.

    An alternative to the left control key please!

    I have a new HP Pavilion laptop - which so far has one flaw: there is no right hand control key...
    I am left handed and so I want to use a R/H control key when I want to select multiple non adjacent items from a list.
    I have tried to remap one of the keys to the right of my touchpad to facilitiate this but the remapping does not give the functionality of the control key being pressed while the touchpad is used...
    I have spoken to HP Support who were completely useless in this respect. The person I talked to said he only used his laptop on a desk with a mouse so could not help! And he told me that I should talk to Microsoft.
    If anyone has any ideas of workarounds for this I'd be most grateful.
    Thanks in advance...

    volume control error

    Hi Akash,

    The issue with volume control could have happened due to the corrupted or outdated driver. To resolve your issue, we suggest that you follow the 2 methods below:

    Method 1: Run the Audio Troubleshooter on the system.



    Windows 10 has a built-in troubleshooter to check and fix issues with Sound. We would suggest you run this troubleshooter to check if the issue is with your Audio



    Refer these steps:



    • Press Windows key+X, select Control panel.
    • Change the view as an option on the top right to Large icons.
    • Click on troubleshooting and click on the view all option on the left panel
    • Run the playing Audio troubleshooter

    Method 2. Uninstall and reinstall the latest drivers from the manufacturer website.

    Follow the steps to update the audio drivers:

    • Press Windows key + X key and click Device Manager.
    • Expand the Sound, Video and game controllers.
    • Right-click on the Sound card and click on Uninstall.
    • Install the latest audio driver from the manufacturer website.
