Read title. In the middle of a stream, I realized I was unable to Alt+tab or Ctrl+alt+del. I tried both alt keys but with no success. I realized shortly after that it wasn't that the shortcuts were disabled, it was the alt keys themselves that weren't working. I was wondering if this is hardware, software, windows, something. I have a Razor Blackwidow, and the only thing I can think of that would damage it is spilling my drink on it like 2 months ago. But there wasn't any damage done at the time and I'm not entirely sure why would just suddenly surface now on two keys. Anyway, any help is appreciated since Google can't seem to provide any. Thanks!

Try using onscreen keyboard to determine if it's a fault within windows.
Reinstall drivers, restart, etc.
And look up how to remove keys from the blackwidow, theres probably some shitty guide someone put up that'll show the safest way to do so.

I have a blog now, I very rarely write things: https://asp4yxiat10n.wordpress.com/

I had a similar problem recently with my shit monoprice keyboard. It was with control though. Happened when I was cleaning out my keyboard, and magically resolved itself. Seems to be the way of things. When in doubt just wait until the problem fixes itself..
