I have a standard 101/102-key or microsoft natural ps/2 keyboard on a samsung notebook computer. The left shift and the backspace keys on the keyboard don't seem to work. They press down ok but don't show results on the screen. I've noticed that the left shift key does work if the right shift key hasn't yet been pressed. Once it's been pressed, the left shift key won't work again unless the computer has been restarted. Please help! Tired of using delete key!

Are you using a PS/2 to USB adapter on the keyboard?

Thanks for replying.

Sorry for not being clearer. The keyboard is built in--it's specified as being a standard 101/102-key or microsoft natural ps/2 keyboard.

I have since plugged in an external USB keyboard, and it worked perfectly.

Change the keyboard type. That is not your keyboard type.

then what should the "keyboard type" be? and how do you change it? I am having problems with my keys not working properly also.

Laptops may have fewer keys than a stand alone keyboard. You could try removing all the listings for keyboards in Device Manager and then rebooting without any external keyboard connected. Windows should then install the correct version.
