  1. Up and Down Arrow Keys Randomly Stop Working


    Hey, I have seen this issue, but none of the solutions seem to work for me. Basically, when I boot up the computer, they won't work. If I uninstall the keyboard and reboot, as many suggest, the arrow keys will work again but not for too long. Sometimes they will work for 5 minutes, sometimes and hour, but if given enough time, they will always stop working and I need to uninstall the keyboard and reboot again. Sometimes this doesn't even work the first time and I have to try again. When I try to update the drivers, it says that they are the most up to date. Any idea what it happening here? Thanks

    :)

  2. down arrow key stopped working

    My razor lycosa down arrow key decided to not respond at some point today. The other ones work and so does the numpad arrow if i turn off the numlock. Sounds like its just broken and im screwed, but any suggestions?

  3. Windows + Arrow Keys Stops working

    Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community.

    Please provide more information to help you better:


    • Are you using a USB keyboard?

    • Have you made any changes to the PC prior to the issue?

    • What is the make and model of your keyboard?

    Since you are able to use the other shortcut keys, means that the keyboard works fine. This issue can occur if the
    Arrow keys on the keyboard are faulty.

    I suggest you to follow the methods below and check if it helps:

    Method 1:

    Try using the Arrow keys on other programs. Check if they are functional.

    Most of the sytems have “Fn” key or a Function Lock key. This key can be used to
    Enable and Disable the Arrow keys. Check if the
    Arrow keys function after toggling the Fn key.

    Method 2:

    Try connecting a different keyboard to your computer. Try the shortcut keys once again. Check if they works.

    Reply with necessary information and the result to help you further. Thank you.

  4. Up and Down Arrow Keys Randomly Stop Working

    down arrow key stopped working

    My buddy's girlfriend was having this problem with a lappy except multiple keys weren't working. She tried troubleshooting, cleaning, canned air, checking drivers, then she called me. I asked "have you tried rebooting it?" She sheepishly said "no", rebooted, and problem solved.

    Reboot is #1 on "shit to do when something isn't right" list.
