So the F6 key on my computer isn't working individually. as in, shift+F6 and alt+F6 are working fine. the F7 and F8 too aren't responding. i tried using F6 through the onscreen keyboard and it worked. but since F6 is working in combination with other keys I'm assuming its not a hardware problem. please help me! its kind of urgent.

Is this a new problem? Is it a laptop? – Synetech Oct 19 '13 at 13:35
If not a laptop then make/model of keyboard? – Tog Oct 19 '13 at 14:32
