  1. Bonjour à tous, Comme en 2017, mon clavier Corsair K40 fait des siennes. Après quelques mois de bons et loyaux services sous Windows 10, mon clavier à décidé de planter : les 3 LEDs clignotent et il est détecté comme "KBD BOOT LOADER" dans la liste des périphériques et imprimantes du panneau de configuration. Comme dit plus haut, j'ai déjà eu ce problème en 2017 sous Windows 7. Le problème est connu, la solution aussi : il faut flasher le firmware du clavier. Comme en 2017, j'ai contacté le SAV Corsair et comme en 2017 c'est la foire à la mauvaise foi. On me dit d'abord que le clavier n'est pas compatible Windows 10, ce qui est faut puisqu'il fonctionnait très bien depuis mars. Puis que le programme pour flasher le firmware n'est pas compatible Windows 10. Pour enfin m'informer que Corsair ne peut pas m'envoyer le dit programme : il semblerait qu'ils l'aient perdu :mad: On soulignera leur incompétence en plus de leur mauvaise foi. J'en appelle donc à la communauté : est-ce que quelqu'un aurait la bonté d'âme de fournir à Corsair, et à moi même par la même occasion, le fameux programme permettant de flasher le clavier ? Merci !
  2. Hello to everyone, Few days ago I faced a big problem with my Corsair Raptor K40. The LED were almost all shutdown, it wasn't recognized anymore by the software and the most annoying thing : the LED for CAPS LOCK, NUM LOCK... kept flashing. I saw in my Control Panel that the Keyboard was now recognized by Windows as a "KBD Boot Loader". So I tried to search for a solution on the whole internet, but nobody seemed to have the solution. I got even more worried when I came across this post from Corsair : Windows 10 Compatibility I also read somewhere what upgrading to Windows 10 would cause such problem but actually, I managed to make my Keyboard works again. So this solution is certainly mostly dedicated for people owning this Keyboard and having upgraded to Windows 10. 1. Download the last software and driver from the website of Corsair : Link 2. Install the software on your PC. 3. Now, go into your Control Panel 4. Go inside the section "View devices and printers". You should see your keyboard with the name "KBD Boot Loader" 5. Right-click on it and click on Properties 6. Inside the Properties, go in the Hardware section. You should see two device functions : HID Keyboard Device and USB Input Device. 7. Select the USB Input Device and click on "Properties". 8. Click on "Change Settings" and then go in the "Driver" Section. At this point, you should see this : http://i.imgur.com/faeo8Hu.png 9. Here, you have to click on Update driver. 10. Click on "Browse my computer for driver software". 11. Click on "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer" 12. Click on "Have Disk" and then click on "Browse" for the next window. 13. Here, you have to find a special file inside the software you installed. This is the path I have : C:\Program Files (x86)\Corsair\K40 firmware update\Driver\X64 (If you have a 32bits version of Windows, select the X86 folder instead) You'll have to select the file "CORK40.inf" http://i.imgur.com/hFJUqhK.png 14. Press "OK" to validate the installation. Now back in the Hardware properties of the device, the "USB Input Device" should have turned into "Corsair K40 Gaming Keyboard". 15. Now select the HID Keyboard Device and click on "Properties". 16. Click on "Change settings". 17. Go in the Driver section and click on "Uninstall". Validate every message of Windows coming for this uninstallation 18. Now, in the Hardware section there should be only the "Corsair K40 Gaming Keyboard" remaining even if your keyboard will still shows as "KBD Boot Loader". Don't worry we're almost done ! 19. Install the "K40FwUpdate" file. Once it's done, the updater should show up. 20. Launch the update action on your keyboard (which should be recognized now) and wait for it to install his files. 21. You're done ! Your keyboard should (magically) lights up again ! I don't know if it could work on other keyboards from the K series, but I hope it'll help people :).
  3. Built new PC, plugged in my Corsair mouse and KB. All works okay but I want the driver so I can sort out the RGB and macros. But, no driver online! Going through Support>Downloads, putting in Gaming Keyboards and K40 or Raptor yields no results. I just keep getting iCUE but that doesn't work. Come on Corsair sort this out. You cannot tell me you no longer support this keyboard!
  4. I have been searching the internet for days, and put in a support ticket with Corsair, but I am having zero luck finding anything. I have been having issues for just about a year now (hasn't bothered me until now as I had everything setup in another room for VR so I ahevn't used it) with the profiles and backlighting not working at all. I have to reinstall the gaming software on my PC every single time I restart or log off in order for it to work again and it is driving me to insanity. Now if I can't even get a fix from Corsair I'll be giving this keyboard away and finding something else. Has ANYONE else had issue like this? I have tried all fixes for every model Corsair has in a last ditch attempt while waiting for Corsair to get back to me but nothing has worked. It would bother me even less if my macros still worked but they don't, it's almost like the keyboard doesn't actually reconnect to the software yet I can still use it.
  5. I need a help with macro for G-keys to open the windows calculator. Tried with advanced options, but when i select hardware playback, it doesnt work. Can someone help!?
  6. So my old MB died. Now on my new system I have three flashing lights for the num/scroll/and caps lock. All the posts I've read say dead device but no one is saying that it's a for sure thing. Is that the case? I did not spill anything or have any problems prior to the MB giving up the ghost. Plugged it into my sons computer and the I'm getting the same 3 flashing lights. I did open a support request with Corsair.
  7. Hi, I have a Raptor K40 (P/N: CH-9000051-UK) with some missing and worn keys. I would like to know what are my options for replacing the keys. Thank you for any help provided.
  8. Hi, I was just wondering if the Raptor K40 had Corsair Cue support. Thanks! This is the keyboard: http://www.corsair.com/en-gb/raptor-k40-gaming-keyboard
