keyboard CTRL+C doesn't work

Q: keyboard CTRL+C doesn't work

CTRL + V works.
C key itself works
CTRL key itself works

But CTRL + C to copy to clipboard doesn't work. (Copying using mouse works though).

Why?

Preferred Solution: keyboard CTRL+C doesn't work

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Why?


DO both left and right CTRL + C not work? Maybe a keyboard issue, or a keyboard driver.

Frequently when I want to copy or paste something I end up typing a 'v' or a 'c' instead. Most of the time this means that whatever was marked it has disappeared and replaced by a single 'c'. Also quite frequently the keyboard enters two keystrokes where only one was made. I touch type and this doesn't happen on other keyboards. Anyone else is observing this?Will Lenovo improve the quality of the keyboard? Or is this specific to my keyboard and can I get a replacement?

Pressing ?Ctrl+A? on the keyboard to ?select all? doesn?t work,

I?m wondering why the ?Ctrl+A? doesn?t work and all the files are not selected.

What might be the issue?

A:Pressing “Ctrl+A” on the keyboard to “select all” doesn’t work,

Welcome to Seven Forums Jamal. What kind of PC is it, a Desktop or a laptop, or?

System Info - See Your System Specs

It may be important to know. Does Ctrl+A not work only in cartain programs, etc. or not at all? If a laptop, try pressing alt+ctrl+fn

I have a Dell Latitude D830 Laptop

I recently replaced my hard drive (sATA) with a fresh one, loaded with Windows Vista. Before even using anything in Vista, I immediately upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate, without a hitch.

However, I seem to have lost the ability to select all using CTRL+a; it simply does nothing. Everything else works (ctrl+s, ctrl+x, ctrl+v, ctrl+c).

I cannot remember if it worked for the brief time I had Vista installed before upgrading to 7; it was a relatively short amount of time (like 20-30 minutes), so I don't know if I used CTRL+A then or not.

Any reasons why it won't work anymore, or how I can fix it?

Ctrl Alt Del does not work at all. I have pop ups with Firefox and IE. Every time I start my computer, Spybot catches some things that want to change registry. I have no idea what they are...just groups of numbers. Also, occasionally a screen pops up that looks like it is trying to install Microsoft Office, which is allready installed. In addition, the computer seems to be running slow. I have completed all of the first 5 steps. I did not download the SP2, but I think it was allready on my computer. Thank you so much for your help.

So for some reason, pressing Ctrl+Shift+0 under Vista just plain doesn't work (Google yielded that it's a problem with Vista based on virtual machine tests of Vista and XP clean installs under 2K).

Hi all,

Just started experiencing this problem a few days ago. No idea what caused it.

The delete key on my keyboard(s) no longer works. I've tried 3 different keyboards (which I know to function), and pressing the delete key (either one, on the numpad or above the arrow keys) doesn't have any effect.

Even on the on-screen keyboard, it doesn't work!

Strange thing is though, CTRL+ALT+DEL works. SO for some reason, the delete command just isn't registering when I press the delete key.

I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the keyboard and software, no results. I'm using a MS Comfort Curve keyboard, but also tested on a Logitech Wave and an old PS/2 keyboard.

I've searched all over and haven't found anyone with a similar issue.

Any ideas how to fix this?

Thanks much,
-Dirk

EDIT: Even more strange observation: When I hit a key in conjunction with DEL, it works. Like Shift+DEL functions properly!

I had to disable all tab browsing for a client in their IE 8.  I then showed the client how to bring up a new window with ctrl+n to provide them a quicker way than clicking for a new window.
 
Two days later, client comes back and says Ctrl+n doesn't open a new window anymore. It is a desktop running wins 7 pro.  I try the ctrl+n (left ctrl key first) and nothing happens. I try ctrl+n (right key next) and nothing happens. Ctrl+C, +V and others work fine.
So it is not hardware.
 
I reopened IE same problem. I was told to check if single view or other settings were enabled in IE but the only settings I find are under the Tab settings which when I disabled tabs in IE 8 these options are greyed out.
 
Of course, the client can click to open a new window, but I am puzzled as to what happened.

. . . but I figured it out and wanted to share

***************************************************************************

Somehow, invisible characters get in there, so when you do Ctrl+End, it will throw you into the bottom right somewhere, just not in the bottom right of your data.

Sometimes you can just delete a few rows and columns around where it takes you, go back to cell A1 and save (that resets it).

What puzzled me this last time, which is how I found the above article, is that that didn't work.

Here's what to do.

***************************************************************************

First, try this:

1) go to the bottom right of your data manually
2) arrow down 25 or so rows to give you some room
3) highlight the entire row directly underneath your data
4) Shift+Arrow Down a few rows . . . keeping Shift held down, press Ctrl+Arrow Down - that highlights everything below, down to row 65,536 (keeping the Shift key held down, you can arrow up)
5) right-click on the highlighted area, and select Clear Contents

Now do this for the seemingly empty columns / cells to the right of your data . . .

My 64-bit Windows 7 often freezes up and Ctrl+Alt+Del doesn't work. Please help.

A:Windows frozen, Ctrl+Alt+Del doesn't work

Do these freezes happen at random times or only when you're doing some specific computer task?

At a minimum I'd run a full scan for malware using your installed AV of choice. I'd follow up with a second scan using the free and highly recommended Malwarebytes.

https://www.malwarebytes.org/products/

I'd also check to see if you have any damaged or corrupt system files by running a System File Checker scan from an elevated command prompt (Option Two, this tutorial.) If any problems are detected run the scan three more times and reboot your computer after each scan.

Hello everyone. Today my shift and ctrl keys stopped working correctly... it happened while I was playing and later when I tried to change the language using Alt + Shift. I checked if Sticky Keys and other similar options weren't turned on by accident, but they weren't.

And after some time spent in trying to fix the problem I opened the On-Screen Keyboard and noticed that when I use my Ctrl key, Shift is pressed automatically as well (it's just what On-Screen Keyboard says). The same thing happens when I press Shift, then the Ctrl key "presses itself". It so happens that all four (left and right shift, and left and right ctrl) keys are pressed at the same time, when I press just one of them.

Does everyone know where the problem could be from and how I can fix it... it's really annoying, I can't use any of the combinations like Ctrl + V, Ctrl + C, Ctrl + A, etc. The problem started while I was playing Assassin's Creed; I sometimes hear sounds like too-much-buttons-pressed while I play it, but I've never had this problem until today. I have no idea what it could be, I tried everything I know.

If it helps, the problem is still there while I chat or surf the web through Asus Express Gate, when the windows isn't running at all.

For the last month or so, every time I log off my account, the keyboard does not register at the Windows Log In screen. This makes it so I have to restart the computer and then it works fine.
There are three accounts on the computer, the casing has been half removed for the last 3 months, a DVD burner and driver recently installed 3 months ago and I am using a wireless off brand USB keyboard and mouse.
OS: Windows Xp Home Edition 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3
As for the second part, the computer requires several restarts to boot up, sometimes up to twenty minutes of turning on and off to boot up. Only started doing this a week ago.

A:My Keyboard doesn't work, and the computer turns on but doesn't start.

It sounds like something is wrong with your Windows XP drivers. Something like that happened to me while building my computer, and when I boot up the keyboard did not work because my copy of windows XP was bad. You could try reinstalling windows XP, and It might work better, but I dont have a definite answer to your problem.

Hi! I have a laptop Acer ES1-P9QU and all of a sudden, the keyboard doesn't work anymore! It was all ok yesterday and not today! I tried to restart my laptop and put an update and it still doesn't working. I type with the "virtual keyboard", but it's really long! I have my laptop since less then 5 months, so I don't understand anything that is happening  Thanks for help!

Hey Guys!! This is my first post, so we'll see how it goes.
So, here's the problem: I used the registry backup program on my computer to reverse some changes I had made to my system. Now, the keyboard doesn't work. It works when Windows boots (when Windows says "Press F8 for advanced startup options) but it doesn't work after that. Because of this, I can't login to Windows. Does anybody know what the problem is? By the way, my computer is a Compaq Armada E500 running Windows 2000 Professional.

The n key had been not working properly and now it stopped all together. I took the key off and tried pressing the white piece of soft plastic but nothing shows up. Is it time to get a new keyboard or is there something else to try? It seems like such a waist to throw out a keyboard when 1/100+ keys stopped working.

Can you tell me why I don't see the light anymore and how can I solve this problem? The LED is very useful and I'd like to have it back!!! Thank you!!!

As the description states, I think that the keyboard driver was corrupted by one or more viruses back when I got infected with AV Security 2012 and ZeroAccess, among others.
However, my computer has since been declared clean after a great save by SweetTech.

I may be wrong about the virus being the cause of the problem, but I do know it's a software problem, as the keyboard will work while the computer is booting up, (long enough that I can still put it in safe mode) but as soon as Windows boots the physical keyboard becomes totally unresponsive, even in safe mode.

The On-screen keyboard still works.
I don't know whether a USB keyboard would work or not, as I don't have one.

I hve already tried different keyboards, uninstalling and reinstallng the keyboard driver normally, in safemode, and also reinstalling after rebooting the computer, but it didn't work.

The device status for the keyboard is:
This device cannot start (code 10)

A:Keyboard doesn't work, please help

Using Windows 8, I have discovered that the shift key doesn't work. I have to use cap's lock. Every time I click the cap's lock, an ' appears. I have to delete that before typing my capital word. Without shift, I can't make many important punctuation marks like the exclamation point and the
question mark. Using an on screen keyboard works, but it's so hard to move your mouse to click each letter. Also, the control key doesn't work. Earlier, whenever I typed the space, a space and a zero appeared. And now space works, but zero doesn't. Whenever I type zero, it become an 0. Not to mention that when I type one, 31 comes up, and when I type three, 31 comes up, too. Also, when I search something online, or save a PowerPoint, or anything else, it will bring something else up. For example, I want to search Mario online, before I can type ma, https://mail.go... comes up and I have to delete everything but the m and the a and start typing again. This started today, though I didn't download anything in the past week besides using http://www.youtube..., which is used by many others. I tried describing every problem to the best I could, and painfully typed with all the problems, so I hope someone answers. Please feel free to ask me
questions. Please elaborate with both
questions and answers. I will re-post this tomorrow if nobody answers or solves the problem. And then continue posting this every hour.

After a power outage my brothers keyboard quit working. He has a desk top computer only one year old. He uses XP. We have rebooted several times. When booting up before Windows opens DOS says it can not find the keyboard.

We made sure the keyboard is plugged in properly (It is not USB connected). We tried another working keyboard, which also didn't work. In Windows we tried adding new hardware. The keyboard is not showing up in the hardware list.

Everything worked fine until the power outage. The computer was in the sleep mode at the time. The mouse continues to work fine and everything else works like it should.

Thank you!
