Windows 7: E key and arrow keys working intermittently

E key and arrow keys working intermittently

Hello everyone..

The "e" key and arrow keys (not sure if there are others yet) are working intermittently. I either have to a) reboot the computer only to have it stop working again later, or b) wait for it to start working again on its own.

The odd thing about this is that it doesn't matter if i use the laptop keyboard, the wireless keyboard, or even the on screen keyboard. the e and arrow keys will stop working and then begin to work again on their own after about 30 minutes or so.

I have an HP dv-6 laptop and am using an HP wireless elite keyboard.

How can i solve this issue?

Unusual problem you've got there. Have you gone to the HP website and check that you have all the newest drivers for your specific machine?
