I'm on a very new HP PC. Every few hours (yes, hours) the up and down arrow keys stop working. I'll switch to a different keyboard and they will have the same issue. Rebooting seems to be the only thing that helps. I am very frustrated.

It's not that they scroll fast. It's not that I need to hit F7. That's not the issue. The up and down simply STOP working all together. And nothing corrects it. Please help. I want a permenant solution.

Thank you
Hello,


Have you tried using Scroll Lock?

It's a key which is near your left,right,up,down keys.

Thank you, kieferschild 24

Thank you
Nightling, You'd be surprised at how often problems are resolved by the simplest of things.

Have you been on to the HP website and checked to see you have the latest drivers?

I have the same issue and it is NOT fixed with scroll lock. the arrow keys simply stopped working in Excel. They work in other programs.

This fix works for me with Samsung Ultrabook. If I mistakenly hit the [Fn Lock] key it changes the function of the arrow keys. Simply click on it again to reset. It's located on my keyboard between the [F12] and [Insert] keys. Fn Lock setting should be set to Off

If your keyboard does not have a Scroll Lock key, on your computer, got to Start, All Programs, Accessories, Ease of Access, and then click On-Screen Keyboard. When the on-screen keyboard appears on your screen, click the slk button.
