Logitech G15 keyboard problem


Colonel Graham

Likes # 0

**I've posted on Logitech forum to no avail, so hoping the wise PCA people can help. I've had the G15 for a number of years. I bought a Logitech webcam and installed the software. All trace of the keyboard vanished off the computer. I have reinstalled it several times, but each time when I program a key, it carries out the action 2 and sometimes 3 times. For example, if it is a webpage, it will open on 3 tabs. I have uninstalled the webcam, run TweakNow RegCleaner 2011, even gone right through the Registry and deleted anything with Logitech in it. Still no luck. I can see it doing it: if I record a Macro of keystrokes, each one records as 1 down, 1 up, 1 down, 1 up. I don't want to spend £90 on a new keyboard, so any help is welcome.**

It may help if you mentioned which OS.

Have in look in Control Panel - Hardware and Sound then Keyboard and then you can adjust the character repeat delays. This may work.

I've never installed drivers for a keyboard whether Microsoft or Logitech or Cherry, etc. They seem to work using the generic drivers just as well. I'd uninstall the Webcam and keyboard drivers then reboot. Let windows install the keyboard. Now try installing the webcam drivers if needed.

That seems to have done the trick. I'll do extensive testing later. It never was a problem before.

Both devices have extended facilities that need software installing to work.

Glad you're sorted.

Thanks both. Bit of fine tuning required, the backspacing has slowed to a crawl.

Sadly, the web page shortcuts are still opening 3 tabs.

Progress report.

Following advice from a neighbour, I've uninstalled the keyboard software, re-booted and looked in C:\Program Files for Logitech. There is a file of 11.5MB 'GamePanel Software'.

The plan is to delete this, but it says I need permission...

Watch this space.
