    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.
