Keyboard Shortcuts not working

I recently installed Windows 7 onto my Eee PC 1005HA. At some point recently, my CTRL-A for Select All and CTRL-S for Saving keyboard shortcuts stopped working for some reason. I've tried to find out how to fix this, but I have not found any answers anywhere online. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hi Adeb09 and welcome

More often than not that is caused by a driver. You can get the relevant drivers from Asus here Asus 1005HA.

Let us know if you need assistance installing them

I've installed all the drivers from the site, but the keyboard shortcut still doesn't work. The weird thing is all the other keyboard hotkeys like CTL-C for copy and CTL-X for cut and CTL-V for paste all work. All the specific hotkeys for increasing volume and stuff like that for my netbook work too. It's just CTL-A and CTL-S for some weird reason that don't work. I was thinking maybe there's some area in Windows 7 where you can actually change these keyboard shortcuts or something.
