Windows 7: L-Alt and R-Alt, L-Shift, L-Ctrl, and L-Fn don't work on my laptop.


08 Jun 2013   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
 
 
L-Alt and R-Alt, L-Shift, L-Ctrl, and L-Fn don't work on my laptop.

My laptop keyboard is giving me difficulties. I turned it on this morning to discover that the keys (Both Alts, Left Shift, Left Ctrl, and the Fn key) aren't working on my HP EliteBook 8440p. Strangely, the Windows key still works fine. I popped off the L-Shift and L-Ctrl keys, used compressed air on the all of the aforementioned keys, and even checked the keyboard language settings.

Has anyone encountered this issue before? If so, would I be able to get some advice on how to fix this?

Thanks!
