Hi @IronPhoenix

 

Check for Filter Keys function. If it is activated, try disabling the filter key -

 

1) In Windows, search for keyboard, and then open Ease of Access keyboard settings or Change how your keyboard works.
2) Make sure the Filter Keys option is disabled.

 

Turning off the Filter Keys

 

If the issue still persists, try re-installing the keyboard driver and check -

 

1) In Windows, search for and open Device Manager.
2) Double-click Keyboards.
3) Right click on the keyboard drivers and click on uninstall.
4) Restart the computer.

4) Restart the computer. 
 

If the issue still persists, perform a keyboard test -

 

1) Shutdown the computer. 
2) Turn the computer back on again and repeatedly tap on the ESC until a Startup menu appears. 
3) Press F2 once. 
4) Go to Component test. 
5) From the list, run the Keyboard test.
