SOURCE: keyboard problems - crtl, shift, alt keys does not work

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.

SOURCE: Keyboard

that means that the keyboard has been set to a different language. On my screen at the bottom right hand is a little keyboard icon and when i click on it it lets me scroll through US English, Canadian French and Canadian Multilingual Standard. If the keyboard is set to the Canadian French option (or whatever other option that is available on your keyboard in red characters) the number two button changes function.

How do I get the question mark punctuation to work...


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.

Shift and cntrl keys are not working .Please help em how to reslove the issue?


It might be that you have by mistake turned on the sticky keys on the system.
Sticky Keys is an accessibility feature designed for people who have difficulty holding down two or more keys at a time. When a shortcut requires a key combination such as CTRL+P, StickyKeys will enable you to press one key at a time instead of pressing them simultaneously
I would suggest you to check whether the sticky keys are turned on. Follow the steps mentioned below.
a. Click on Start and click on Control panel.
b. Click on 'Accessibility Options' and in keyboard tab make sure that there is no check mark near 'Use sticky keys'.
c. If there is a check mark then remove it and then click on Apply.
Also check to see if anything is stuck under keys - cleaning the keyboard using a vacuum cleaner (AT VERY LOW SUCTION) could help

Turning off my green keys on HP pavilion desktop keyboard?


Hi,

How to turn off Sticky Keys: disable the Ease of Access feature
Tip: use the Windows Ease of Access Center






How to turn off Sticky Keys: what are Sticky Keys and why turn them off?
Sticky Keys is a Windows Ease of Access feature that makes it possible to use keyboard shortcuts or type capital letters without needing to press more than one key at once. Normally, you'd hold down the Shift key while pressing a letter to type a capital, or hold down the Ctrl key while pressing 'S' to save a document. It's even trickier if you want to use a shortcut such as Ctrl-Alt-Del or Ctrl-Shift-Esc.

With Sticky Keys, you can press Ctrl, Shift or Alt, let go and then press another key - Windows will interpret this as pressing two keys together. You should also hear a beep if you have speakers connected.

That's great if you're disabled and can't press two keys at once, but what if you want to disable Sticky Keys?

How to turn off Sticky Keys in Windows 8
You can't press Shift another five times. Instead, you need to bring up the Start menu (or Start screen in Windows 8) by pressing the Windows key. Now type "ease of access" and click on Ease of Access in the list of results.

If you're using Windows 8, you need to click on the Ease of Access Keyboard settings result, and then it's a simple case of sliding the Sticky Keys toggle to 'off'.

If this does not help you. Let us know the below details to understand the issue bettery.

Cannot change the function on my keyboard back to a question mark


If you're on Windows then try pressing CTRL+SHIFT keys together (sometimes ALT+SHIFT, see which combination works for you) until your keyboard layout indicator in your system's notification area (bottom right part of your screen, just left of system clock) shows the keyboard layout code that you're used to, in your case "EN". You can cycle through all the installed keyboard layouts using this same key combination.

Apostropy and quotation mark keys change


The only time that I have this problem is when I've accidentally hit SHIFT and CTRL at the same time. Do it again and you should go back to your old way of typing characters.

Cannot get apostrophes or question marks


I just figured this out. Hold down your left shift key, then press CTRL. It may take a couple of times for it to work, but it will eventually.
