    Many buttons including spacebar don't work. Updated drivers don't help and can't roll back to previous driver. Help!

    Tried uninstalling drivers, reinstalling, computer insists I have right drivers. Most of my keyboard buttons are now reassigned other functions. Have to press fn button while using the spacebar. Why do these big updates keep f***in with my computer. Updates for our protection??? Along with a huge dose of incompetence!

    Hello Michael.
    Can you advise as to some specifics regarding your equipment.
    What kind of computer..... Desktop, Laptop, Tablet, All in One, 2 in 1, etc. Manufacturer Name, Model Name, Model Number, etc. ??
    What kind of keyboard..... Integrated as in a laptop, external peripheral? IF so, how is it connected USB wired, Bluetooth or RF wireless? Manufacturer Name, Model Name, Model Number, etc. ?

    Boy, you ask a lot. It's a Toshiba satellite, using built in keyboard, recent windows 10 update took 12 hours and repeated retries. I'm not able to provide more details at the moment.

    When you get the opportunity, beg, borrow or steal a USB wired keyboard.
    Plug it into the laptop and see if it exhibits the same or similar symptoms.
    IF not, then it is likely either, a faulty keyboard (I've replaced a lot of laptop keyboards) or..... more likely a proprietary driver issue, for which you will need to know......
    Your exact Model Name and number (all numbers) and then go to the Toshiba site http://support.toshiba.com/drivers
    Plug in the appropriate numbers for your machine and download the driver and install it
    Regardless of what device manager is telling you, the laptop likely has some proprietary keyboard requirements with respect to its' features and functions.

    Don't neglect to check and confirm that you have the proper settings with respect to region, language and keyboard configuration in settings.

    I've found places I can change languages but it doesn't affect which keyboard buttons still don't work. Why do I have to hold down the fn button to make keys 1 through 5 and spacebar work??

    I found advice online suggesting I remove the Lenovo pointing device. I did so and it appears to have cured my problem however temporarily. Time will tell.

    Why a Lenovo pointing device was added to my Toshiba I'll never know. Why do these things happen?

    Hi Michael,

    also check: Settings > Time & Language > Region & Language (click on your language) > Options and check that you have the correct keyboard layout showing! (German is correct for me even though I have UK English as the default system language):
