Okay so I got a new laptop, it's a week old, it is an Asus X501A-XX277H that came with windows 8 installed. At first the shortcut WinKey + X worked but now it does not while all the other shortcuts work. When I press it the pointer loads for a split second but nothing happens. I also cannot access the advanced context menu by putting the pointer in the left corner and right-clicking?

I had to download a different touchpad drive as the windows 8 scrolling and swiping gestures always stopped working once my laptop came out of sleep/ hibernation. Downloading the Elantech driver resolved that problem, could it be the cause of this one though?

Any help will be very much appreciated as it is driving me mad!

Uninstall any software of you installed that interacts and/or changes shortcuts on your system. – Ramhound Jan 24 '13 at 2:17
