Hello,

Several of my Keyboard Function keys are not working specifically: the down arrow, the delete key, the enter button and probably most annoyingly the backspace key. I am at my whits end! I've obviously checked to see if the drivers are up to date, which they seem to be and I've also unchecked sticky keys, filter keys etc in ease of access.

My laptop is from PC Specialist here are the specs not sure if that helps.

The first this to do is to test using a external USB keyboard. If the external keyboard works OK then you should look to replacing the internal keyboard.

Good Luck

Hi,

Check whether you have a F Lock Key in the upper right-hand side of your Keyboard. If not, then try with system restore. Perform System Restore in Normal Mode. If it is not possible means do it in safe mode then.

Then try tapping F8 at startup, and from the list of startup selections, select Safe Mode by using UP Arrow Key to go there > then hit Enter.

Try a System Restore once there, to pick a Restore Point before your problem..

Click Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore > pick a different time > Next > etc
