Windows 7: 2 Keys On Keyboard Not Working Properly

2 Keys On Keyboard Not Working Properly

Hi folks. I just had to do a reinstall of my Window's 7 and since have had a problem with 2 keys on my keyboard. When I use the apostrophe key, nothing happens, but when I type something after, it appears. It's no big deal really, but I'm rather anal and it just bugs me when something isn't working right.

I have used search here at SF and gone through the tutorials, but can't find anything that quite matches. I tried to update driver's but the little box on the screen tells me driver's are up to date. I checked Device Manager and it doesn't indicate any problem. I checked Keyboard in Control Panel and it says the device is working properly.

If anyone has any suggestion's I would appreciate hearing them, if not I'll learn to live with it.

Thanks, David

Have you changed keyboards?

Do you have another keyboard that you can try using with this computer? If not, can you borrow one?

No Carolyn, I don't have access to either. Actually, I'm getting used to it and it really doesn't bother me that much. I'm not going to worry about it but Thanks to Shootist and Carolyn for their help.

If it does get to be too bothersome, consider buying a keyboard. They are not very expensive and if it does not resolve the problem you can probably return it for a refund (depending on where you buy it from, of course). It may just be a key that is sticking.

Try holding down ctrl then the left shift button. then tap the right shift button 5 times.
I had the same problem and it worked for me.
