Both the alt keys stopped working on my relatively new usb keyboard and I suspect I accidentally disabled them somehow. I have not spilled anything on it (it's supposedly spill-proof anyway). I have tried turning off/on sticky keys. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the driver. The keyboard is working properly according to device manager. I tried System Restore to a point before this started but got the message "no changes have been made" and the problem persisted.
I never realized how often I use alt with shortcuts until it stopped! They don't work regardless of which input language is on (English--United States; English--International). Did I just buy a shoddy product? It's a Gearhead Windows Media Pro USB keyboard.
