Certain keys on my Asus laptop will only work when pressed with other keys

Dec 1, 2017
I have an Asus Republic of gamers laptop and today certain keys stopped working but will work as normal when another key is pressed simultaneously. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the keyboard but the problem persists.

The keys work perfectly as long as I'm pressing another key.
NOTE: If you need to type in a password to even get into Windows to do the following, make sure you attached an external keyboard first, to get past the password. Then disconnect the external keyboard and try the following...

1. Uninstall the keyboard driver.
2. Reboot the computer (without reinstalling the driver).
3. When it restarts, it should reinstall the driver on its own.

If this doesn't work, you may wish to try connecting an external keyboard and see if it works fine. If it does, then it could be the keys themselves that are the issue.

You may also want to try updating the Synaptics Driver if the above doesn't help.
