    I recently purchased the surface pro and was initially very happy with it. However after installing all the updates and windows 8.1, I noticed certain keys on the right hand side e.g. the enter key, right shift, up and right arrows stopped functioning. So first thing I did was search multiple threads in regards to this issue and only manage to find one person with the same problem. However they tried a factory restore and it fixed the issue, until they then reinstalled the updates again. They solved the issue by buying a type cover which isn't an ideal solution.

    So from this its definitely an issue with the updates. So does anyone have any ideas in solving this issue.

    Many Thanks.

    Hi Himanshu, thanks for the fast response. Tried your advice and keys still seem to be not functioning after refreshing the device. So do you think it's a hardware issue? I haven't used it it for more than a week which I find surprising if it is :(

    Thanks again. It's a bit unfortunate since I'm from the UK and I'm pretty sure they don't have any MS Stores dotted about here. So gonna have to use their online store which I'm dreading. :(
