Right CTRL Button not functioning

I have had my thinkpad edge 420 for a few months. From the start, I noticed that the right ctrl wasn't working when I tried to use it for CTRL + Page up (shift between tabs). I thought it was unusal but now I realize it doesn't work for any shorcuts. Does anyone know how fix this issue?

Wow, I just learned that ctrl+pgup/ctrl+pgdn switches between tabs!  That's awesome!  Thanks for the tip, I had no idea about that.

 

Sorry I don't know the answer to your question though.  Try running the on-screen keyboard built into Win7 (type "on-screen keyboard" into the start menu).  If you press your right ctrl button, does it recognize it?  If not then it's possible your keyboard might be defective and you'll need to call support to have it replaced under warranty.
