I have recently bought a netbook (Samsung NF210) which is in excellent working order. I take great care of it but it is just outside of warranty. Anyway, somehow I have disabled BOTH CTRL keys which is very frustrating as I use them a lot. I know they are not broken as both would not go at the same time. I have tried everything to fix this as to no avail! I have tried:
updating bios
using USB keyboard (when I do USB CTRL keys work but still not on netbook)
even fully reformatting
disabling various services (hkcmd, Skype, few others)
tried keybinding software
press alt+ctrl+fn
unplugging USB adapters
installed all updates

can anyone help, its driving me mad! :banghead:
MAny Thanks

Its kind of weird lets try disabling and enabling keyboard from device manager.

Steps:

01. Go to Settings ---> Control Panel ---> Performance ---> System.

02. In the System dialog box, choose Hardware.

03. Go into Device Manager.

04. Find Keyboard in the list.

05. Click on Properties.

05. Disable the Keyboard


After disabling restart your computer and enable keyboard.

sure sounds like a hardware problem to me. You said you reformated so that means you reinstalled the operating system. that should of eliminated it being a software problemn plus a usb keyboard works. That would indicate have a problem with keyboard itself or the controller.
