Arrow key problem

I didn't spill anything on my keyboard or anything like that, but all of a sudden I noticed my left and down arrow keys weren't responding. I tried the numlock, capslock, and Fn keys but it still doesn't work. The keys aren't stuck so I don't know what the problem is. Everything else works fine.

If its a sensor problem under the keyboard, gently blowing under the key or hoovering the keyboard may bring results, but it may just be the driver, so go to my comuter icon, right click, properties, the hardware tab, device manager and go down the list to keyboard, click the '+' sign to reveal your keyboard make, right click on it and select uninstal. Restart the notebook and the keyboard will be recognised again and the driver automatically installed. If none of that works your problem may be more serious in the way of a faulty circuit under the board

My arrow keys aren't working, only the FN function even when not being pressed


Either you have a stuck key, or your keyboard is shorted maybe due to liquid being spilled into it. Lightly tap the affected keys to unstuck it, or put the laptop in a well-ventilated area if liquid was spilled to let it dry.

Number lock key


1. Please tap the NumLock key many times and see if it responds to the tap,

2. Probably your keyboard is in "Alt Fn" mode, so please try to hold the Fn key and tap the Fn key (I prefer to tap the left arrow and right arrow) and see if the keyboard is working properly.

3. Probably your keyboard is failed. It happens, even there is no spill accident. In this case, you need to replace the entire keyboard.

Razer Ultimate Blackwidow up arrow key is malfunctioning


This is going to sound really stupid, but if I was just having the exact same problem as you. I launched the Razer Synapse 2.0 program and save that my up key had a macro that did nothing. Once I changed that back to the default single up key function, it seems to be working fine.
