I have a Sony Vaio and recently my 3 key wont work. I know that it's not a hardware thing as I have eliminated that with the following. 


If I hit Shift + 3 it will type the # sign

If I bring up the onscreen keyboard and hit the 3 button it wont send. 

If I use a Macro or Script to send a 3 it wont send. 


I have scanned computer with the following:


Malware Bytes

Malware Bytes (Root Kit Removal)


CC Cleaner

SlimDrivers ( I updated All Drivers it said to)



I just don't know what else to try without resetting this thing. It's driving me up the wall. Please let me know your ideas. 



****Also just forgot to say that if I use my Ten key pad then the 3 works. But that's the only way it will work.

Have you tried running sfc /scannow from the command prompt as an administrator?

Keep us posted
