    Video driver not installed from link yet. Use Device Manager to install it if necessary. Also see previous post about my edit.

    You're welcome.

    Seems to be the keyboard Worked fine when booted after unplugging, then plugged it in and it stopped!

    Cant believe no one else with a g15 hasn't installed win 8!

    Anything I can do?

    p.s. I did install the drivers from the link so not sure whats gone on there!

    Try installing the driver for the keyboard from Logitech's site using the Device Manager. Look at the .sys modified date in Windows Explorer and compare to the date in Device Manager after install. Make sure they are the same so you know it installed well.

    Glad it's figured out though, so enjoy 8 in any case, with or without the keyboard.

    Driver install as shown in this post might do alright though.

    Problem is the drivers from Logitech come in a packaged exe so cant see the individual sys files!

    Nah...most likely, while running the .exe and also before closing it, it will make a temp folder in either your user temp environment variable or the system's temp folder at C:\Windows\Temp

    Look in either of those to install from using the Device Manager.

    User temp by default (if not moved) = C:\Users\{YourUserNameHere}\AppData\Local\Temp

    Looked in both those locations and they're empty

    Tried installing using device manager and listing choices. I choose the one listed under Logitech (vista and above) and set all 3 to that but no joy.

    Working now!

    Not sure if it was the GFX card after all! I had to change it in device manager to a non engineering model and the specific one to my card!

    Did change some stuff with the keyboard, but doing that with the gfx card seemed to solve it!

    Thanks for all your help!

    You're welcome.

    You can't change hardware by changing software.

    Scratch that! Problems back!

    It is after a reboot as I didn't turn it off yesterday whilst it was working!

    Fairly sure its the keyboard, seen this thread:
    G15 and windows 8 - Logitech Forums

    any other ideas? I was never able to install the drivers directly from the install as when I did find the temp folder, it didn't have any driver files in it!

    Edit - seems to be one of the 3 drivers in device manager under the keyboard. If you uninstall one of them ( for some people its the top one, for me it was the bottom) it makes it work, however this will reinstall every time you reboot. So some people change this driver to "HID compliant device"

    Just so you know for future reference!
