My Escape and the apostrophe/quotations button stopped working!  Worked before I left for work.  Come home, nope.

Google Fu led me to try three things

System Restore to earlier date.  Nope.

Delete Drivers and reboot.  Nope.

Unplug and replug elsewhere.  Nope.

It is a USB keyboard.

 

No idea what else there is to do.  Any ideas?

Also, tried the osk.exe and while shift, tab, alt, so forth light up when I hit them, escape still does not light up and only works when I click it with my mouse.

Does the keyboard work on another machine?

Try blowing out the keyboard.

 

Does you onscreen keyboard have this problem?

 

Do you have another keyboard you can try?


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Went to friends house, tried keyboard on his, and... same problem.  Like how?  How only those two keys?  But easy fix, spend 9$ on a new keyboard.  

Just don't understand how before work they worked, come home, they don't.  Gah, that's going to frustrate me more than any thing else is not knowing why, while I was at work and not using it, they stopped working.

 

Also, ' " ' " because I can use them now!
