Keyboard number keys not working

Post by lakefisher1 » Thu Dec 25, 2014 2:09 pm

Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone could help me here.

I got a new keyboard today, yay, the Strike 3 rat keyboard, and other than the fact the top row of number keys aren't working. Is anyone able to help me fix this issue? Every key on this top row aside from the 5 and 6 key don't work, nor do their other function like brackets, or exclamation points.

I tried googling for a solution and it seems other people have had this problem, with other keyboards. So yeah, if anyone has any suggestions please give them. If I can't fix it within a couple of days, I will take it back to the shop, and I'd rather not go through the hassle.

Note: I know this keyboard isnt the best, but I like it and it feels good to me :)

Does it work normally in another PC?

If you plug it into another computer and it has the same fault, it sounds like a hardware issue, and needs swapped out.

See if there are any drivers you need to install or something. I would also follow Gwynzer's suggestion.

Also, see if it came with a PS/2 adapter and try using that and see if there is a difference
