G15 noob in need of help

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Evening all,

I have just recieved my G15 very excited lol the problem im having is how it actually all works. I have red thru the thread at the top of the forum but it was a lot to take in. My lcd buttons wont actually do anything, I have installed the latest "Logitech gaming software 64 bit" from there site and installed that.

Have i missed something? I didnt install anything from the cd as it was just the old version of the software i installed. I just would like to have core temp showing etc

Also i dont no if its just my eyes but some of the back lit keys dont seem to show up that great only about half way up the key might just be the way im sitting cos when i look down on the keyboard it seems ok

Hope you can help

I would install all the software from the CD first and then upgrade it with the newer ones from their site.

In your case, since you've already download and installed the software, just uninstall > reboot > load the stuff that's on the CD. That way, you won't miss anything.

Good luck.

Hmm, would need a pic to comment on the key glow. As for the LCD display are you sure you got the right drivers installed ? This is the one I installed literally on Monday and all is working fine: http://www.logitech.com/en-gb/434/18...tion=downloads you may need to choose from the dropdowns but its the "gaming software" you want to choose IIRC (not infront of my Rig at the mo). Also google SirReals g15 Plugin. Gives a great little system summary of RAM, CPU usage etc.

EDIT: I see you have tried the same DL i pointed out. perhaps try the opposite choice. Shame I am not infront of mine to be sure. Have you actually tried accessing the config software from your system tray ?

To get things like core temp , Vent and other software to show on the G15 you have to go into options to enable it through the program ie Core Temp

Hopw this helped

Thanks mate just loaded up core temp and it came up on the lcd by itself i have selected a few of the default applets to try out but when i press 1 of the 4 buttons on the lcd it wont seem to change applet

I'll get there in the end im sure, i have red a lot of people seem to use lcd studio, is that like a third party applet piece of software i take it?

From my past experience with my G15, Install the latest drivers straight from there website,
Also, if you want programs like Ventrillo, mumble, teamspeak and more to work, you will have to enable them in the Logitech LCD manager and make sure they are up to date.

Hope it all goes well man, Good luck!

Takes a bit to get used to the control layout on it, but you use the circle button to switch apps and use the second button from the right to actually activate the selected app

Enjoy!


PS, theres a dimmer button with 3 settings above your num lock key

If your problem is that you cant switch applets when you push the button I had the same problem with the newest drivers. I had to set it to where it brought up all running apps in order to change them. It wouldnt just cycle though like normal. I posted my problem on here and someone linked me to this site http://www.userdrivers.com/Keyboard-...ista-7-64-bit/ and I downloaded the drivers from there. It may be an older one im not sure but it fixed my problem.
