Everytime I plug something into PC, Strafe RGB lights turn red


Recommended Posts

My friend recently got me a new keyboard (Strafe RGB) but we noticed that every time I plug something in (headphones, mice, etc.) to my pc, all the lights on the keyboard turn red and I have to force quit the CUE app.

 

How do I fix this?

Do you have the devices plugged into a KVM or USB hub? If so, what happens if you plug them into your motherboard. Also try different stacks of USB on the motherboard.

 

When you reinstalled CUE, did you keep your previous profiles?

 

Regardless of where I plug in USBs or headphones, whether it be the motherboard or the case, the keyboard still turns red.

 

And I did not keep my previous profiles when I reinstalled CUE.

I basically had this same problem except i had a K68 keyboard and all my corsair gear would turn red no matter what if i plugged something in or out it would turn red. The fix that worked for me is disabling the SDK this has seemed to fix it for me anyways.

Any chance you have RGB Fusion installed? That one in particular likes to turn Corsair components red.

 

Any 3rd party application that controls RGB can potentially interfere with iCUEs control of it -- often disabling SDK can help, as you've found.
