Double keyspresses, keyboard broken ?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a SteelSeries 6GV2, I have had it over a year and I not so often might sorta rage and type lots of meaningless text quiet quickly and roughly, nothing really crazy though.

I do get from time to time that a few keys, T, M and L do a double press maybe more keys. Like I am just typing and I get multiple keypresses. Same in some games where my guy just stops sprinting or running.

I was of the understanding mechanical keysboards are tough, and I have abused free membrane keyboards WAY more and they never died.

Tried swapping from PS/2 to USB, reinstalling drivers nothing seems to really change anything.

Anyway, is this a common problem for broken mechanical keys or does this sound more like a software problem ?

My TG3-BL82 used to do the same thing every once in a while. I never figured out what caused it, but it never happened frequently enough to really be a nuisance...

I would have to guess it's an issue with the switches. Maybe buy a few new switches and swap them out? See if that fixes it...
