Hello, I started a new post because this is a different Error.
After I updated my x230t using the recommeneded updates from the website, my keyboard suddenly stopped working.
I tried re-installing windows but the error remained.
I eventually found the issue being that when I start up the PC, the Fn key is stuck as if its still pressed, even when its not (the key itself isnt stuck).
To solve this, I went into Bios and swapped the Fn key with left Ctrl, and now whenever I boot up the PC I plug in an external keyboard and press left Ctrl, this "unsticks" the left Ctrl key (which is physically the Fn key after I swapped them) and lets me use the computer normally.
What could have caused it? is it unrelated to windows seeing as it happened after I clean installed? how do I go about fixing it? and can I contact an offical Lenovo support somewhere online?

I would just replace the keyboard. This sort of problem is almost always a short in the keyboard. Used ones are commonly available. The T430, X230, T530, W530 all use the same keyboard

The problem is not in the keyboard, it worked perfectly before the update and suddenly its not working.
Also I just asked the Lenovo support guys, and after doing what they told me to and going to Bios -> Load Setup Defaults my PC wont turn on anymore, it just gos staright to Windows and an error on start up, restarting nad it loops.

So im back at square one, clean install of Win 10, current Bios 2.65.
Like I said, on start up its as if the Fn button is pressed and I cannot unstuck it, I went into bios and swapped Fn with Ctrl and now when I plug in an external keyboard and press left Ctrl on it, its all fixed.
This wasnt a thing until I updated Bios / installed all the drivers and what not when I just got the laptop.
Should I just keep going back in Bios versions until its fixed
Also could this be a cause of me choosing English/Hebrew languages when I just installed windows on this x230t which is in france?
The keyboard is also in france, maybe choosing English / Hebrew setup it changed something?

In the BIOS under config/keyboard and mouse, make sure Fn lock is disabled
