Most likely a clip has broken or bent out place. The clips are not repairable. You can try gently removing the key and see if you can ensure the clips are properly in place and then try replacing the key. That might work. Most likely, you need to replace the keyboard. This is a user replaceable part and is normally easy to do. Note: The power button on ...

Seems to be an existing problem on this keyboard that exists in its firmware. Users here complain about the same thing, but HyperX support has said they will replace the board if you send it in and they can replicate the problem. This comment offers some solutions if you don't want to send it back and are willing to get a bit technical.

Maybe, depending on the bluetooth dongle/hardware in your PC/laptop. Some bluetooth dongles/hardware support "HID proxy" which would enable them to be used pre-boot in the BIOS or at the BitLocker PIN entry screen.

Given the time between the OP and now, this may be moot. However, for any others with a similar question, I propose the following solution: Buy a cheap usb keyboard, the ones that are like $5 to $20 or so. Disassemble it and take the controller and usb plug section, then wire-up your "controller" to the contact connections intended for the keyboard matrix. (...

I have a hack for this. PgUp selects the first file. Then Ctrl + Space, clears the selected file. You can add that to your authotkey script, just before creating a new file.

The zoom lever on this keyboard is supposed to act something like control-mouse-wheel does in a Web browser or Microsoft Office products.

Nevertheless, ...

I recently started having this exact issue, though I believe it's actually the WIN key that becomes "stuck". I fixed it by pressing WIN + L, which would lock my computer. Upon logging back in, it seems fixed. I have had friends who only just started having the same issue as well, I suspect a windows update may have done it.

I was having the same issue in addition to some other keys acting up. It got much better after I vacuumed the keyboard. They occasionally still stick but vacuuming made it WAY less frequent. Hopefully it will go away more after I vacuum more.

My last answer was deleted despite being the actual answer to your question. But here I will try again and hopefully do better. You need to go to the bios and look for something like "function key behavior". I have added an image to show what it can look like. There you can usually choose between "function key" and "multimedia key". The behavior you are ...

I found the direction of setting terminal.integrated.macOptionIsMeta to true to be a dead end. Scripts that read input still did not understand the newly configured bindkeys.

Unfortunately the keypresses are sent to the OS as APPCOMMAND_VOLUME_UP and APPCOMMAND_VOLUME_DOWN HID messages. These are then translated to calls to IAudioEndpointVolume::VolumeStepUp() or IAudioEndpointVolume::VolumeStepDown(); this is hardcoded to 51 steps. Unfortunately it is possible only with third party software, or you click on the slider in the ...

I was able to disable it using "services.msc" from the run prompt (Windows+R).

There are many sites explaining how to disable (or enable, again) the virtual keyboard, e.g Quehow and HowToGeek. Be sure to disable the Touch Keyboard and Handwriting Panel Service using the Service CPL, or with Regedit at Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\TabletInputService, setting the value Start to 4.

TL;DR: Probably not much other than not being able to resume from suspend and/or hibernate by hitting a key on the keyboard. A bit of extra background for why it's just 'probably': HID is a communications protocol primarily designed for input devices (keyboards, mice, game controllers, etc) intended to be independent of the underlying connection (HID is ...

I found the answer by looking at the US keyboard layout By imagining that I had a US keyboard, I could map the corresponding keys, even though those keys are not in those positions on a Swedish keyboard: bindkey -s '\e&' \\ # option-shift-7 maps to backslash ('&' is found on the US keyboard!) bindkey -s '\e*' \{ # option-shift-8 maps to left ...

It's no longer necessary to use an extension these days.

You can try disabling the keyboard in Device Manager. The laptop keyboard should be listed under Keyboards, right-click and select Disable. If the keyboard doesn't disable, try another one, as there will be one keyboard listed for every driver installed (such as keyboard drivers for remote software, if installed). If you break something, resulting in no ...

I tried a bunch more things without any luck. My issue seemed to be similar to this question that was never resolved.

However, on a whim, I tried tapping the num ...
