  lechuga 05:05 25 May 2008


I have a problem. Two days ago the left "ctrl" stoped functioning. I have Compaq nx6125. The thing is that when I put other keyboard to my laptop it functioned correctly (the other keyboard functioned). I checked the drivers and everything is fine. What else can I do to fix it up?

pls help

If the keys are of the type that can be removed .try and carefully prise up the key it should pop off if so tou can then gently press the button undernesth to see if it works .If ir does then as said the key os sticking cleaning may sort

I checked it and still doesn´t work. It´s clean and I discovered that ctrl does function with other keys but does not work with "c" and "v". Have I blocked it some way??
