  2. Repeat Keys not Working

    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:

    • In the search box of Start menu, type device manager
      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.
