  1. Some keys are not working on my laptop’s keyboard


    Basically I haven’t used my laptop for about a week, and when I used it again two days ago I couldn’t type in my password because the number 3 wasn’t working neither on the keypad or the alphanumeric one, and then I noticed that some letters weren’t working either. I entered safe mode and the numbers still aren’t working.

    I’ve noticed that when I press the keys the cursor in the text box stops “flashing”, too, so I’m sure the keyboard is physically fine. I’m not very good at tech though aka I have no idea what I’m doing but I reset my laptop choosing to keep my files and the problem is persisting.


    Also doesn’t work in BIOS. The keys not working are: alphanumeric 1, 3, then -, Q, T, U, P, ], J, right Ctrl, right arrow, then from the keypad 3 and 5


    i tried reinstalling the driver, my laptop shows no needed updates and ive ran out of ideas Some keys are not working on my laptop’s keyboard :(


    anyone know how to fix this?

    :)

  2. Keyboard Volume Keys not working while in-game

    I happen to have used the Tt Challenger Pro keyboard in the past, and the volume keys worked flawlessly in every game, so it's indeed a weird problem. I would suggest the same thing sneekypeet suggested, using the keyboard software and assign this function to a hotkey, but you said that didn't work either, so yeah...

  4. Some keys are not working on my laptop’s keyboard

    Windows 10 Laptop Keyboard Keys Acting Strange

    Hi,

    I realize that you are facing issues with the keyboard on your PC. I will try to help you with this issue.

    Suggest you to plug in an external keyboard to the laptop to check if that helps.

    Further you may also use the onscreen keyboard to check if that helps.

    Follow these steps to launch the On-screen keyboard:


    • Press Windows key + R to get the run window.

    • Type “osk” and hit enter to launch the On-screen keyboard and check if this helps.

    Keep us informed to help you further.

    Thank you.
