    Seeking Help for my keyboard?

    I won't take forever so i'll be as quick as possible yet detailed.
    Issue:A Section of my keys on my keyboard have stopped working. Sometimes i can get them working again but only
    if i hold down one or more of the keys that have stopped working and for about 5 minutes (Realistic time). Sometimes they stay
    down and out.I don't know what to do tbh. I've ruled out that they are warn out keys and judging by how they all go out at
    once?Yeah i think this may be a driver issue. Do i need to Reinstall my keyboard driver?

    - Yes i've already checked the whole thing with the sticky keys

    - This issue has been going on for about a year now

    - This issue started i believe after windows 8.1 was installed

    (P.S , please no rude responses.)

    It could be the keyboard is defective. Try booting a live Linux CD/DVD like Knopix.

    If the keyboard works correctly there then it's okay and the problem is with Windows 8.1, if not replace the keyboard.

    There are lots of problems with Asus keyboards if you have constant guard installed. You could uninstall it if you do and see if that helps (assuming the keyboard isn't broken).
