BlackWidow Ultimate not typing

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Heyy guys, so i have the Razer blackwidow ultimate...

pretty sexy keyboard Imo, just upgraded from the razer lycosa (upgraded about a week ago)

but recently this week the black widow ultimate has been like glitching, and not working.

so what happens is i try and type on well anything and some keys dont work but they are clicking fine, for me the W key and most of the bottom keys like zxcvbnm arent working.

ive tried updating the firmware and all that

any suggestions?

No idea. All I can think of is making sure the drivers and firmware are up to date.

Waiting for Razer flamers...

Sounds like some serious electronics fail. Try testing it on another machine, but this sort of thing is usually a keyboard issue, not a computer one.

Gotta love RMA time.

Honestly second this but they're not horrible keyboards as long as the one you get is working, have the store let you test out the space bar before you buy it and see if it pulls down the alt keys

please try downloading and installing the drivers (if any) otherwise just try rebooting the system some keyboards/mouses do not automatically work when they are plugged in and need a system reboot to function properly

cheers
