Question about Compaq Evo Notebook Keyboard N610C/N600c
suddenly the keys ctrl, shift and alt stopped working. i tried to find some clues on keyboard settings on windows and couldn´t find anything.
could someone help me?
I met the same problem, and I fixed it.
For my own case, it is mainly a hardware malfunction happening at the data bus(the wide, plastic strand) connecting the keyboard to the mainboard.
I found that part of that strand was bent, so I squeezed it to keep it flat.
everything has been OK since I did that.

I had the same problem, after checking several solutions I gave up and went for some professional help at Fraserburgh Computer Service
they needed only about 15mins to locate and fit in a new keyboard and now it's all back to normal.
Sometimes it's better and easier to spend a few quids and have it fixed by professionals.

The VERY same thing started happening to me about a month ago.
I'm just very lucky that i have a 5 button programmable mouse
to fill in for some of the buttons (i.e copy and paste function)
Oh. and my problem is also for the Evo n610c note book.
(odd.. isn't it ?)
I've ran dozens of virus scans..
that was my first thought... that it could have been a key logger..
but found nothing.. online scans.. onboard cpu v-scans.. nothing.
and now, a secondary issue has croped up,
where other key's are going off on there own..
somewhere near the upper left hand side a button
starts setting itself off.. causing drop down menus
to appear and disappear RAPIDLY and unendingly.
the only counter measure i found for that has been a swift
left palm strike.. but sooner or later its gonna break more
then it fixes :(

Tips for a great answer:
When you were typing something you probably hit the left shift key along with ctrl. Hold down the left shift and ctrl for about 2-4 seconds and you should get your question mark back.
To make it so it never happens again, go to control panel / region and language / keyboards and languages / change keyboards. Remove every language except for English (us) or whatever region you want to use. Before you accept verify that your keyboard is on your preferred language before you do this. check and make sure you are getting the proper slash when you push slash, to change it if you're not getting the slash use the (left ctrl + left shift for 3-4 seconds) if that doesn't work then try alt and left shift.
