So I was just using my keyboard as usual, just got it for Christmas and it worked fine, but as of recently, my keyboard decides to type random letters, and sentences I have typed before. It activates by pressing F5. It types the sentences Like search history, occasionally messing it up with an incorrect number of letter. It sometimes opens up random software, and starts selecting stuff. I even had it spit out my address 2 times or so. I don’t even know if it’s the keyboard anymore. Does the keyboard store past searches? Please help me fix this!
Two days ago, the keyboard was working fine as usual during a gaming session; but then the next morning, the keys were suddenly acting up. To elaborate, whenever I pressed a key or attempted to type a sentence, the keyboard would suddenly enter extra letters, numbers, symbols, and even shortcuts. I searched a keyboard tester online and found out that when I pressed any key, a multitude of other keys would be "clicked" on. The problem seems to be more with the PC, since I'm able to use the keyboard with no issues on another laptop. Things I have tried: Soft reset? (The one where you hold ESC key, etc etc.) Forcing firmware update via iCUE software (problem still persists even with or without the software running) Cleaning (Had the keyboard for a year, cleaned under those keycaps real good) Shaking the keyboard really hard (honestly worked the best - issue didn't appear for a solid hour then reappears. thanks random anon!) Plugging the keyboard into different ports (no matter what, the issue still persists on the PC, but switching to my laptop, the issue is nonexistant) The only real problem with my setup is the keyboard part. My mouse and my headphones work with no issues, even the onscreen keyboard is not spazzing out like it does when I plug in my keyboard. Please send help. I spent an entire day trying to solve this.
