I'm using a Dell Inspiron 13 2 in 1 seroes, and the S keyboard works intermittently. At times it does not work at all. Not only that, I belive it also causes the following 2, w, a, x, d, and capslock button to stop working however, at times they all work fine besides the S key which requires it to be pressed with the D key together in order to register.

Any ideas as to why?
 
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/reconnecting 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.
