Question about ASUS F3Jm Notebook

Standard keyboard shortcuts E.G Ctrl+B for BOLD not working

I have a problem with my ASUS F3Jm laptop, where all the classic windows keybaord shortcuts work but a few.
Ctrl+I works for activating/deactivating Italics, as with ctrl+U for Underline4, but Ctrl+B wont work for Bold, Ctrl+S wont work for Save, and a few other that I cant remember right now.
I have tried both Ctrl Keys and with both some command work and others dont.
I have tried contacting ASUS over this issue but they have not responded.
Is anybody else having the same problem? And of course does anybody know how to fix it?

This happens in all application, word, IE, wordpad, etc etc. Its is allways the same shortcuts that work or do not work.
I have looked at application-specific keyboard option, like in Word, and everything is set as it should be, it just does not work.
I cannot see any options in windows anywhere to alter any of the keyboard shortcut setting.

I hope somebody can help me.

Shortcuts have locked up on my pc

Conflicting Extensions

Add-ons, also called plug-ins or extensions, are mini-applications that attach themselves to independent software and add extra capabilities to the program.

Extensions can change a browser's interface, alter the behavior of existing operations, add new functions or install in-browser support for programs like Shockwave Flash or Adobe Reader.

Because these extensions make changes to the overall operation of a browser, they can also affect the shortcut keys.

Most browsers offer an option to run the application with add-ons disabled; if the shortcut keys work when extensions are turned off, one of the add-ons is at fault.

Key Reassignments

Programs like MapKeyboard, SharpKeys and KeyTweak can reassign the functions of each key on the laptop keyboard.

If the computer is running a non standard keyboard layout, certain keys might not behave or respond normally.

For example, if the "Ctrl" key has been disabled or is set to work like "Shift," shortcut keys won't work as expected because the keyboard is no longer using its default mapping.

If the keyboard layout has been changed in the Dell laptop, the registry will contain a Scancode Map entry in

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout or the language bar will show a keyboard language different from the default ("English (United States)," or "EN," for Dell laptops purchased in the U.S.).

Virus Infection

Malicious software can affect the function of peripheral components like the keyboard and mouse.

If the keyboard is exhibiting strange behavior for example, if certain keys do not respond or if keys output unexpected letters a virus is most likely the cause.

Running an anti malware software from within Safe Mode accessed by pressing "F8" on the Dell logo screen should remove any viruses interfering with keyboard response.

Browser Software

Upgrading or downgrading a browser on the PC can affect the Internet shortcut keys associated with that program, especially if the version removes a function that was once associated with a particular keyboard combination.

Alternatively, if you've switched to another browser, you might find that certain shortcuts that worked in the previous browser don't work in the new one.

For example, while "Shift-F10" opens a context menu in Internet Explorer, the same keyboard combination does nothing in Mozilla Firefox.

Hope this helps.

Ctrl + Alt + Arrow Key DOWN turns video flipped upside down. I have some edistors that use this shortcut for code replication. So I would like to disabled this "video flip feature" orat least...

An upside down image - this is caused by unintentionalpressing Ctrl-Alt plus the down arrow key. Restore by pressing Ctrl-Alt plus the up arrow key. ALSO To change the display from portrait to landscape Press Ctrl-Alt plus a left or right arrow key. Some computers do not have this function.

Cordless Keybaord - Some keys not functioning

Could be interference from a wireless device using the same frequency. Locate any other wireless keyboard/mice from the vacinity and try it again. Also, push the connect button on the bottom of the keyboard and see if that helps. Also make sure the base station of the keyboard is close enough to the keyboard/mouse.
