    Tab and left CTRL not working


    I have had this problem persist for a few months now so restarting the computer or updating windows is not the answer. My left CTRL key and Tab key on my HP Envy 360 stopped working suddenly. The laptop is less than a year old and I have removed the keys to check for debris so I don't think its a hardware issue. All other keys work fine. I have tried- RestartingRe installing drivesAll the combinations of press crl twice or windows key and alt 009 etc TeamViewer is not running Turning sticky keys on or offI don't have an external keyboard to plug in to check the differenceThanks

    :)

      Control panel.

      Large icons.
