    Keyboard gives wrong input/inputing without touching


    Dear community, I have a problem that I need assistance with.

    About 2 days ago, my SteelSeries Apex 500m mech keyboard started giving input without my interference.

    It presses buttons without me doing anything

    Or giving wrong input (sometimes different buttons while pressing the same) , sometimes whole line of buttons light up on the test I did via keyboard testing website.

    Some more info:

    Keyboard is pretty new, bought December 2016

    Those crazy attacks ( they dont happen constantly ) could be from minutes to hours long. And repeat...

    It never happened before

    I dont eat or drink close to my keyboard ( it is on a roll-in shelf under the table )

    I cleaned it yesterday, only hair, no liquid marks, no sticky areas.

    I took it to work to test. Seems like working fine with my work computer as I am typing this right now. (but I will leave it on with an open word document to see if it records some malfunctions)

    My work computer is with Windows 7 Professional 64 bit

    My home PC is with Windows 10 Home 64 bit

    Cables undamaged

    Drivers up to date

    Reinstalled and installed the keyboard back again from device manager

    --So far no solution--

    So what I figured out until now is that the keyboard is probably undamaged ( will know, after my shift ends in 6 hours, if it malfunctioned during that time )

    I remember that couple days ago my home Windows had an update.

    I thought maybe this could be somehow related.

    I would like to hear opinions and more than that, Your solutions.

    Thanks

    Pavel

    :)

    Language keyboard input doesn't equal output

    Hi,

    Language input may vary depending on the Input method set on your keyboard settings. To sort your concern, we suggest that you check if the desired input is set correctly by following these steps:

    • Type in Language and keyboard options on the search box.
    • Select the desired language that you're trying to set up.
    • Once you've selected the language, select Options.
    • Under Keyboards, select Microsoft IME and click
      Options.
    • Scroll down and select Open advanced settings.
    • A window will pop up. Under General tab, click the drop-down arrow for
      Input method and select the desired input.
    • Click OK.

    Let us know if you encounter any challenges along the process.

    Hi, I think you may be able to resolve this by going to the control panel here:

    and setting your desired input method as 'override' rather than 'Use Language list'

    Help with the keyboard input


    Dear TenForums members,

    I have had this problem since I thought I had solved the chinese input. But, it turned out to be available for a few hours and then the IME is unavailable until next sign in.

    In brief, to get the chinese input back, it need to sign out and sign in back and it will going to happen again continually.

    Please tell me how to fix this.

    Thank you.

    *Picture above shows the language input setting

    Steps that don't worked for me:
    - Alt + Shift
    - Win + Space
    - Setting the Chinese language as default language (worked for a while)
