Right arrow key doesn't work

Asked by DisgruntledNun on 2012-05-12

The right arrow key on my laptop doesn't do anything anywhere in the system. I am running Ubuntu 12.04. All other buttons and mouse buttons work as normal apart from the one key. It is not a hardware issue because it works perfectly in windows 7.

PC specs:
Alienware M17X R3
GPU: Nvidia gtx580m
CPU: intel i7 quadcore.

No one else seems to be having this problem so I cant find any ideas. Any answers appreciated.

Thanks in advanced.
