Acer Aspire E1-470 laptop keyboard stop working


Mar 12, 2016
For some unknown reason my Caps lock,M,S,D,G,H, Up Arrow. stop working all of the sudden even tough it was fine just 3 seconds ago. i think because i press the arrow and D button too hard before?

i am sorry, i cant explain much. its Hard to type like this with on screen keyboard

Please do try these troubleshooting steps that may help in solving the issue.
- First is to go to Device Manager and uninstall the Keyboard driver.
- Once done reboot your PC and it should reinstall the keyboard driver automatically.
- After the reboot do test it again and see if the same problem will persist or not.
- Next is to try a USB keyboard and see if those keys which is not working will work.
- If those keys works on an external USB keyboard and on the onscreen keyboard your last bet would be to reinstall Windows.
- If reinstalling Windows will not work, unfortunately the only solution would be to replace the keyboard.
