    Could you rewrite the key commands you are trying to use, I am not familiar with what you appear to be asking.

    Or what you are trying to do by using those keys.

    Is this a laptop keyboard or a USB/PS2? f you can change the keyboard, have you tried that?

    Does this happen in all applications or just certain ones?

    Are you dual booting Linux?

    I am guessing the problem key combinations print nothing, but the keys used separately work normally?

    If you use the onscreen keyboard do the key combinations work as they should?

    Hi,

    I have a laptop keypad.Yes you are correct.The keys work separately.The problem arise only if i go for combination of keys.

    I have been unable to find anything that might account for 2 of many key combinations not working. I have seen this problem before, but do not remember seeing a solution.

    My best guesses would be:
    Bad keyboard
    Language setting
    hot keys or short cut keys
    Keyboard driver.

    If you run any specialized software that might take control or somehow change the normal key signals, you might check that.
