Vipershark Posted May 7, 2015 Share Posted May 7, 2015 Hi! I recently purchased one of the new limited-run K95 RGB keyboards with blue switches and it arrived today. I've had some time to play around with it and am currently very pleased with it, but I'm having an issue that I can't seem to find a solution to. I think I've more or less figured out how to use the CUE software, but it seems that trying to assign Macro and Keystroke actions to keys isn't working at all. At first I thought the issue was that my G keys weren't working, but I noticed that they were responding to Type Lighting Events and when I tried assigning macros to the standard keys, none of them would work either. I tried doing some googling to see if I could find a solution to the issue and came across this thread: http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=138944 in which it seems that the poster is/was having the same issue I am. After seeing that assigning Text actions to his keys was working for him, I tried the same and Text actions work fine for me as well, even on the G keys. So in other words, the issue is this: my keys seem to work just fine functionally but for whatever reason will not execute Macros or Keystrokes when pressed, but they WILL execute Text actions and respond to Type Lighting. Just to ensure that the problem was specifically with Macros and Keystrokes, I tried assigning them to both a G key and the End key, then opened up a text editor to see their effects. The G key did nothing when pressed, and the End key seemed to have no effect whatsoever (not even its default End behavior) but when I reassigned the action to a Text action, both the G key AND the End key responded as intended and typed out the test message that I assigned to them. When I removed the assigned action, the End key went back to its default behavior and functioned as the End key normally should. Because Text actions work fine, I can conclude that the actual keys are working as intended and the fact that the End key stopped working altogether when I assigned a Macro/Keystroke to it shows that either the keyboard or the software is preventing me from executing Macros/Keystrokes specifically. One of the main functions I bought this keyboard for was its ability to use macros, so it's pretty important that I get this working. Can anyone help me out? For reference, my OS is Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. Here's a screenshot of my device manager window if it will help. I'm unsure if my drivers are set up correctly or if I'm supposed to have this many generic input devices. http://i.imgur.com/uSjIiv3.png My previous keyboard was a Logitech G15. Should I uninstall the driver that appears in my device manager? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
