|I until recently owned a logitech G15 gaming keyboard, until i spilt some water on it then it died. I then bought a Razer Lycosa keyboard, but when i plugged it into my computer it did not work. The lights on the keyboard were switched on, but none of the buttons on the keyboard registered anything (nor would the caps/scroll/num lock lights switch on at afater their respective keys were pressed). However, the keyboard works fine in my windows 7 Partition, and on the other computers in my house, so that rules out any hardware errors. When i managed to finally boot into XP (Using an old ps/2 keyboard), XP kept asking me to install the drivers for the keyboard, along with my mouse , 2 unknown devices and, bizarrely, my DVD drive, yet when the wizard had run through it would always give the same message: 'Windows cannot install the software because the correct software cannot be found'. Thinking this erratic behaviour was caused by a virus i did a full scan with kaspersky VRT and removed 3 trojans and a keylogger from my system. |
However after rebooting from the scan and removal of the viruses, the install driver popups kept appearing, and the keyboard still did not work. Leading me to believe that possibly the malware has corrupted my system files or registry.
I have tried several fixes and tricks from the internet to apparently solve this problem, none of which have worked.
What ive already tried:
Various 'code 39' fixes including editing the upper and lower filters in the registry
I'm tearing my hear out over this, so any help would be greatly appreciated!
P.S I do not have my XP disk any more so reinstall is not an option!
