    Start Button on my keyboard won't trigger to open start menu

    Title says it all, but why? Last time I was using Windows 7 it was still working fine. Now I noticed it stopped working when I upgraded to Windows 10. I'm not bothered by this but I'm just asking if this is normal?

    Does the keyboard have a key to block start menu usage. So called game mode.

    Mine works, so no this is not normal. I have no idea why it doesn't work though? Does anything at all happen when you press it? What about + X, or + E, or + P ?

    Nope, it doesn't have anything blocking it. Tried all of the combinations you suggested alphanumeric, but it seems to me that the start button feels dead. Maybe the PS/2 port on the motherboard is failing. I've noticed some random stuck-up while I was playing Counter -Strike: Source where the lights of the numlock turns on and off and goes back to normal again. Thank you guys looks like I'm gonna buy a keyboard to be plugged in the USB port :)

    PS2 keyboard? Must be getting old? Buying a new keyboard sounds like a good plan.
