Keyboard problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • A stupid and annoying problem just started.

    All was perfectly working until 20 minutes ago - I opened Microsoft Word and I noticed I could use the ctrl+shift+left/right arrow to jump and select words; funny fact is that the combinations ctrl+left/right and shift+left/right work just fine. I then checked and this extends to other applications. Besides, the combination ctrl+alt+del won't work.

    I tried reinstalling the keyboard and it remained the same. I check sticky keys and the such, but all seems fine.

    Any suggestions? I don't think it matters that much, but I am using windows 7 ulyimate 32 bits

  • Does the Alt key work? You can press Alt in Windows Explorer and see if there is any response on the menu bar.

    Does it work if you re-log on?
