Hi!

I am experiencing a problem with "ESC" and "TAB" keys on Window 7 Pro. They stop working after the computer has run for a random period of time.

The problem is not solved by using another keyboard nor working via Remote Control. To "solve" it or be able to use "ESC" and "TAB" keys again, I would have to restart the computer. However, the same problem reoccurs after a while.

I am guessing that it is a software issue, however, I cannot find any solution on the internet. Any ideas?

Many thanks in advance.

Is the same behaviour exhibited using onscreen keyboard?

Start - All Programs - Accessories - Ease of Access - Onscreen Keyboard.

Check your keyboard and language settings in Region and Language.
