Ideapad 510 - "p" key does not work in Windows lock screen

LENOVO ideapad 510 with Windows 10.


When I attempt to unlock the screen (by entering my Windows password), the "p" key does not work.

I tap it, I bash it, nothing.

All other keys (a to z, except p, 0 to 9) work fine.

I use Alt-112 to type the "p" and get into Windows.

From that point onwards, the "p" key works fine (I'm using it now!!).

It just does not work on the Windows lock screen.

Have I somehow locked my keyboard into some crazy config??

Hi there, Mepcl           -


Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.


You can also start by flushing out all static, remove battery and AC adaptor and hold down power button for about 15 seconds.


Also, update the chipset drivers


Update us how it goes.
