New Extended USB keyboard does't recognize Win KEY

September 25, 2014 at 09:31:20
Specs: Windows 7
Just got a new extended USB Keyboard which doesn't recognize the Windows KEY. I'm pretty sure this has to do with a wrong driver being installed in an error in the keyboard section in this part of the windows registry _LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E96B-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}.
What I DON'T KNOW HOW TO DO IS FIX THIS PROBLEM. Someone said to ck the system.ini file to insure keyboard designation is correct ... keyboard designation ... but I THINK system.ini is for 16-bit stuff and is pretty obsolete in Windows 7 scenarios??. ANY HELP WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. Thanks!

Not an answer to your question but I think there is a chance that system.ini will still be recognised in Win 7 (32 bit anyhow) although not in normal use. If I'm right it could still function if created for some specific purpose.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I'm not sure what the difference is between an 'extended' USB keyboard and just a USB keyboard. Googling that term showed mostly an apple product. Is that what you've got? If so, what is its exact model number?

Found this:

no fix there but is yours acting the same way?
