RE: dell inspiron 3437 escape key doesn't work

temporary Solution:

Click START > Type osk.exe in search box and press enter.
Permanent Solution: 

A keyboard will open up on screen. Using mouse type ESC on screen that are giving you trouble.


take the top esc button carefully.... and clean using blower only in keyboard... Again fit into keyboard..

turns out I had installed a Microsoft Webcam - and the small software piece that served as the device driver / camera preference settings hijacked the escape key.  Uninstalling this solved my issue.

i hope this problem will solve...
