Hi there
if CTRL+ALT+DEL doesn't work then I'd suggest ".... Houston We Have a Problem".

CTRL+ALT+DEL should work on ANY type of keyboard.

Something is either hosing you up or your keyboard has got broken.

Just try switching keyboards for a quick test. If this doesn't work then maybe the Mobo is broken although even on a Laptop a USB keyboard should still work .

Cheers

You should still be able to right click on the taskbar and click 'Task Manager' I believe. If you can, I guess it points to a keyboard problem.

Yep I just tried it with different keyboard and it worked fine.
Could it be something with sticky keys?

The shortcut for the Task Manager is Ctrl Shift Escape.

I dont think the stick-keys a problem. Are you able to use all the keys seperately?

Does your previous keyboard have any kind of helper app that lets you customize settings, options, etc? Either that is the case, or the keyboard is defective. You could try other three-key combinations, but it sounds like you either need to remove that software or replace the keyboard.

No apps of anykind. This keyboard i newer, but somehow ctrl alt dela stop working.
But when I click those keys seperatly they work just fine. Wierd?

I've seen keyboards go bad when they stop handling multiple keys at once. So, give another three-key combo a shot, such as CTRL+Shift+ESC. If that works, and the keys work individually, then the keyboard is probably fine....but then the mystery deepens!
