    Keyboard just failing?


    This is the computer I have: Asus Desktop 8GB Memory 1TB Hard Drive CM6730US011S - Best Buy

    I'm using the keyboard the computer comes with, and starting last night some of my KEYS on my keyboard are just failing.

    but it's only these keys: A, TAB, 1 (on top not the 1 on the number pad), & Q.

    Only these keys don't seem to work, and it toopk my a while writing this because even if I SMASH IT it still doesn't work.

    it just seems not to be working???? with smash or not, it jusat worksa when it wants too

    Bad Keyboard? Try switching to a new Keyboard. Also check your Language settings, if you have a UK keyboard installed, they keys will be all different.

    Go into the Charms bar and click 'Settings' KB is on the lower right corner. It'll say what KB is being used.

    You got any other KBs you can try? Sometimes they just go bad, not often. Try your KB in another system.
