    Neither ALT keys work? Or just the one on the right which you are probably used to using.

    Both do not work, I figured at first it was my keyboard not working but i have concluded that it was windows itself.

    How long ago did this happen? If less than five days, try to restore a previous registry.
    Reboot and hold down the CTRL key until you get the boot menu.
    Choose Command prompt only.
    At the C:\>

    Type
    scanreg /restore and press enter
    Choose a reg from before this happened.

    See if that makes a difference.



    CTRL +ALT+DEL doesn't work? No ALT at all?


    Have you uninstalled or installed any new programs? TWEAKS etc? Anything to give a clue?

    It happenend about a month a ago, and Ctrl + Alt + Del does not work at all. I am always installing and unistalling due to my small hard drive.
