I have to copy and paste a t everytime and a is a very common letter. what do I do?

is it my keyboard? or my computer?
 
Hi,

Here are some troubleshooting steps you can try that I've suggested to others who had the same problem.

- Check keyboard language settings.
- Open Control Panel and look for Region and Language.
- Check all tabs if they are all set to United States.
- If that doesn't work, try pressing those following keys which are not working using your onscreen keyboard (Ease of Access look for Onscreen keyboard)
- Connect an external keyboard and see if the same problem will persist because if does you may need to consider on doing a complete Factory Reset cause it's a problem with your operating system.
- If all these will not work I would suggest replacing the keyboard itself.

So I'm having a similar issue with both of my CTRL keys. they work on everything but my laptop's keyboard. Is that just a hardware issue or could it possibly be something else?
