Ideapad 700 - Ctrl keys work occasionally

After about one year of using my Lenovo Ideapad 700 this issue came. Both Ctrl keys work occasionally. Most of the time they don't work, but sometimes after many tries, they start to react for a few strokes.

 

Things I've already tried:

1. Boot in Safe Mode (didn't help)

2. Updating BIOS (didn't help)

3. Using Ubuntu (the same malfunction there)

4. Switching to external keyboard (external keyboard Ctrls work well)

5. Strange methods like pressing Alt + Ctrl + Fn many times (didn't help)

 

Have someone found any workarounds? Still not sure if this is a hardware thing because both Ctrl keys affected and there is plenty of space between them on a keyboard. All other keys work well.

 

Mod's Edit: System model added to the front of Subject line to improve visibility / clarity.

I got the same problem for like 2 weeks now and it's very annoying. Did you find out a solution? Thanks!

The only solution i found was to disconnect the keyboard from the inside of the laptop, reconnect it, but it worked for like 2 day. By than the problem was back on Smiley Sad I consider buying a new keyboard, but if anyone knows something about this problem pls tell us. Smiley Very Happy

I wonder if buying a new internal keyboard helps. If someone does it, please, let us know if that works.

Well, for now, the keys are dead entirely, no reaction for the past half a year. So has someone changed a keyboard? Will it work?
