SYMPTOMS
Commands that use the CTRL key (for example, CTRL+F4 or CTRL+HOME) do notwork.
CAUSE
This problem can occur when Windows is using the KEYBOARD.DRV and *VKDdrivers and the keyboard driver selected in Windows Setup differs from thetype in use. (For example, Setup displays "All AT type keyboards [84--86keys]" when the keyboard in use is actually a 101-key keyboard.)
RESOLUTION
Change the keyboard driver in Windows Setup to match the type of keyboardin use. Most keyboards with 12 function keys use the "Enhanced 101- or 102-key U.S. and Non-U.S. keyboards" driver.
