    Some Keyboard keys not working / working incorrectly

    Hi, I updated my Synapse software (Razer) and suddenly my BlackWidow mechanical keyboard isn't working fully. The F keys are not working correctly the F10 mutes and F11/12 turn the volume up and down (almost like it's a laptop keyboard). The Windows key has swapped with the ALT key and also the hash key isn't working.

    I'm not sure what else to do, I uninstalled Synapse, reinstalled, updated it, removed it, unplugged the keyboard etc.

    Any help appreciated

    You might try System Restore back to the day before you first updated the software. I would also try the keyboard on another computer to make sure the keyboard is okay. And while at it, try the other keyboard on your system.

Keyboard favorite keys not working properly
I have just got a new computer with Windows 8.1. I use Firefox and a Microsoft digital media pro keyboard which has 5 favourite keys they are assigned to web pages. I have been using these previously on XP with no problems at all. Now they are very very slow to respond. The other hot keys work ok.

Hi. This is really random. The keys are messing up. They either won't work or type double. I can only presume it's a virus. I've tried to gain access to my password protected user account via my guest account but I can't type the password in because of the way it's messing up. I want to use...
