Some keys on my keyboard stopped working

Some of the keys suddenly stopped working like
s , x ,w etc …
I don’t know what is the problem but it seems some software problem .

  • To be able to test whether it’s a software problem or not, we’re going to switch to TTY2.

  • If you get lost, please remember Ctrl+Alt+F1 is your friend!

  • Print this page so you have it as a reference while in TTY2

  • Log off

  • Switch to TTY2 by pressing Ctrl+Alt+F2

  • Log in there

  • Execute:

  • Press S X W on your keyboard

  • Don’t touch anything for 10 seconds!

  • If you do not get the exact same output as this:

    kb mode was UNICODE
    [ if you are trying this under X, it might not work
    since the X server is also reading /dev/console ]
    press any key (program terminates 10s after last keypress)...
    keycode  28 release
    keycode  31 press
    keycode  31 release
    keycode  45 press
    keycode  45 release
    keycode  44 press
    keycode  44 release

    you have a hardware error, not a software error: replace the keyboard.

  • If you would get the same, please shout out!
