    keyboard working here and there


    so ive had issues with this keyboard since the day i bought it. a sidewinder x4. i put it up cause im a heavy gamer that relied on the numbers keys. but found out that this keyboards keys only work here and there. such as the windows key isnt working right now. maybe the down/right arrow might not be working like it was earlier but now it is. but the main issue is the number keys from 1 to 0 or - that just stop working


    but i recently pulled it out cause my keyboard ive been using for years has started to flunk out. and still same issue. just keys not registering for multiple mins but then working again for half an hour or hour before not working again.


    i downloaded the keyboards latest driver recently too but still doesnt work


    i put it under windows category and device and drivers cause microsoft doesnt seem to have a microsoft products category beside surface? i guess?

    :)
