    I have a logitech g11. It just turns off randomly and I cant use it for like 10 secs and than comes back up and it is fine. Is there a problem with the keyboard or is it with the usb thing. Someone even suggested it could be the power supply to my desktop.

    no really it could be from smashing your keyboard all the time.

    remember runmaps? and that climb server?

    and that iceworld match with peter and viva and zombie?

    well i don't know much about this but mite be your usb try a different one but it mite be your power supply
    :mellow: if im rite it comes with drivers try to uninstall and reinstall the drivers

    All I can say is change what USB port you use.

    quick fix, get a real keyboard that does not use a usb but instead the keyboard slot
    It might also be the drivers so I would try to update any and all drivers your running.
    Lastly your power supply could be affecting it. If this is only a recent problem it could easily be your not getting enough power to the pc and it dies and comes back because it gets enough power to run again.
    There are literally alot of things that could be affecting it. these are just a few

    I tried changing usb ports. Well see how it works.

    as stated but way about going.
    Try changing to a diff keyboard and see if issue is resolved first, quick and easy solution. If you wanna keep yours try this:
    1. change usb port. (if port is going bad you will notice fix)
    2. update drivers, could be they are corrupted and new ones come out all the time which are better.
    3. Is it wireless or wire? If wireless you could be getting a bad reception. If wire keyboard you could have a break in the wire which will result in working and not working. Much like powersupplies for laptops/phone chargers when they copper lines in them are broken there won't be a connection.

    There are many issues that can be the problem but if you go about it one step at a time you will resolve the issue.

    check the wire for kinks or smashes...sounds like it might be a connection problem....do you have USB ports in the front of ur computer.....might not be a bad idea to use those temp, to rule out the back usb ports being the prob...anything else hooked up to them which also having problems?

    yea spar i didn't read your post lol. got lazy half way through all of it. i think the problem is from ck smashing his keyboard all the time though or lazyness to not look into the issues himself lol.

    Worst comes to worse, Have you overclocked your USB ports?
  13. May 22, 2008
    A ps/2 port, you can easily find adapters online. Whats your specs because if its the PSU then you should prob upgrade. Like I had to...

    Thanks Kyle :rolleyes:

    When i get a new keyboard hopefully it will stand up against my fists.

    Sorry for the necropost, but lately I've been having this problem with my G11 as well. It can't be the power supply because I have a 650W, and going by jake's hardware setup, that should be more than enough (I'm running a Q9450, 9800 GTX+, 4 GB ram). I have tried uninstalling the existing drivers and installing new ones, but no dice. It has to be something with the keyboard, unless Chris has an Gigabyte EP35C-DS3R too and it's a problem with the mobo.
    More specifically, what happens is this, in order:
    1. The keyboard backlights go off and it stops registering keystrokes, and Windows makes that little "ding" noise you get when you unplug your mouse or KB.
    2. The backlights then flash on and off again really quick, and Windows makes the "plug in" ding noise.
    3. The backlights come back on fully, and the keyboard works again (and Windows makes the little "plug in" ding yet again).

    Also, during that period, the mouse doesn't register either :blink: . Pisses me off, 'specially when it happens in the middle of CS or FC2. :down:
