    The device driver for keyboard is missing, corrupt or partly damaged to set you in the situation.

    insert the Windows 8 dvd in optical drive and boot from it,

    select the repair option which will repair and reinstall the missing or damaged device driver in your system.
    or log into www.microsoft.com, find device driver for keyboard, compatible to windows8. download then install it in the system.

    both can solve the issue of partial performance of keyboard.
