  1. Only space bar, backspace, and enter keys work


    Hey all, I turned on my PC this afternoon and I was unable to login, as only the space bar, backspace, and enter keys worked. I tried on 3 different keyboards and got the same problem. I can't login to see if there is an issue in settings and I have no idea what to do. Anyone else having this issue? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    :)

  2. Keyboard issue on space bar and backspace

    I am having trouble with my space bar. Instead of doing a space it types letters. Backspace key brings up a project mode and the volume control icon. When I turn airplane mode on the problem disappears and keyboard works fine. Could this be a virus of some
    kind.

    For now, let’s try the simple troubleshooting steps and check if this helps. Follow the below methods.

      .

    • Locate for the Keyboard and click on it to expand.

    • Right click on the keyboard and click on

    device and click on update.
