shift keys not working

Post  Rrtaya_tsamsiyu on Sat Dec 29, 2012 11:02 pm

Some time ago both my shift keys stopped working. its not sticky-keys. ive tried turning stickykeys on and off again manually, didn't work. Someone once showed me a combination of keys to press (i think it was lost or chris), which would bring them back for a couple seconds, then they would stop working again. anyone know how to fix this problem?

I think he meant it's not working in minecraft.

I fix it by spamming both CTRL, ALT and shift keys, but the bug comes back quickly.
I never had that problem again when I changed from Java7 to Java6.
Or maybe there's a weird thing we do and it causes the bug.

They dont do anything when pressed or held down. i tried a program that showed when a key was pressed and for how long in milliseconds, among other things. It didn't get any input at all when either shift key was pressed.

and i havent tried to take them off, but i doubt its because they're dirty becuase they both stopped working at the same time, and all the other keys work fine (except the light/dark function key is a little glitchy).

Try another keyboard and see if the shift keys are working. If they are not, it's your computer. If they are, it's your keyboard.
