Hello Gooch69,

 

With the keyboard plugged into the computer navigate to the device manager. Locate the driver and uninstall it. Reboot your computer and allow windows to reinstall the drivers for the keyboard.

 

Post back your results.

Was you able to attempt to uninstall / reinstall the drivers to see if they made a difference?

Hello gwenclo,

 

I will start by saying random is the hardest thing to troubleshoot.


With that being said, have you tried another USB port to see if the issue is with one port or all ports?

Was you able to try another USB port to see if the issue persists across other ports as well?
