Austin Harris use a USB keyboard and see if that works. If so, it is most likely that you either have a broken keyboard or a broken connector on your board. You will have to disassemble your laptop to check on that.

It may or may not fix the particular issue in this case, but I just had the same thing happen and got it worked out, so posting just in case.

I’ve had this issue literally a few moments ago, as well as on the MSI laptop I had for less than a year. Basically all i did was to restart the stupid thing. My keyboard was lit up and typing fine one moment, but then suddenly in the middle of a sentence it wouldn’t register a key stroke on any program I had open. Restarting fixed it.

A lot of people are having that issue lately, especially if you’re on Windows 10. So, if you have problems with it, quickest way to try a fix is restarting and seeing if that does it. Not sure why it does to begin with though..

But, yeeeeah, I miss my MSI...

you may have stepped on a key and held it too long therefore activating the Sticky or filter keys or other optional keyboard settings.

Try this first before you get into all the hardware fixes:

Method 1: Disable the Filter keys and check if it works.

a: Type Ease of access in the start search box and hit enter.

b: Now click Change how your keyboard works

c: Remove the check mark from the box next to Turn on FilterKeys.

d: Click the blue Set Up FilterKeys link

e: Underneath Keyboard shortcut, remove the check mark from the box next to Turn on FilterKeys when right SHIFT is pressed for 8 seconds.

f: Now click Ok two times.
