If this key combo really changed something "in hardware", i assume that a "hard reset" of the notebook(?!) should solve the issue...
Usually, this is accomplished by removing all power sources and periphery, and then holding down the power button for 15-20 seconds. The idea is to remove any stored electricity (from ac adapter, battery, capacitors) to clear all non-persistent storage.
Your devices miles may vary, the manual should mention it.
