Question about Logitech G15

Keyboard does not respond prior to windows launch

I use a Logitech G15 keyboard and G5 mouse. Prior to Windows launch, the PC does not respond to keypresses. This makes it impossible to boot from my windows CD and format/reinstall windows. I use a Gigabyte 965P-DS4 motherboard, and have verified that the USB ports and hub are working.

Re: Keyboard does not respond prior to windows launch

Have you configured the Usb Legacy support in the bios? If not you'll need to enable Usb keyboard support in the bios for the keyboard to function correctly or at all in a 16bit environment.

Some keys are not working on my g15 keyboard

Try the "On-Screen" keyboard - if it works then your keyboard is bad.

I can't find your keyboard, but there again I don't have all the details so, if you'd like to start here :-

Enter the required options to get to your particular keyboard, you should be able to find out if there's a relevent driver for you.

Just got a brand new G15 keyboard (orange bl). Installed software, checked for any and all updates and it will not work! G keys appear to work, LCD works, but normal typing and number keys do not work....

plug the keyboard, reboot the computer, while rebooting type randomly on the keyboard while unplugged , when the pc returns to windows screen plug in the keyboard. allow it to enumerate then try the keyboard again.

if it is still not working get your invoice ready and call logitech for replacement.

Logitech G15 Keyboard not detecting WoW or other games

The follwoing threads talks about your problem, with solutions posted:

  1. You need the latest WOW patch to get G15 LCD support.
  2. The applet for WOW launches at the Login screen for WOW. Until then it will not show up at all in the LCD control panel for the G15
  3. The search you did for WOW is only for the profile which does not do anything with the LCD. It only handles programming the G-Keys. When the applet launches it should display "World of Warcraft" in the LCD. Nothing about the profile launching. That's a different thing.
  4. Even though the applet for WOW is running, it may be disabled in the G15 software. To check this launch WOW and go to the login screen. Then go to the G15 LCD Control panel and make sure the box next to the WOW applet is checked.
Basically, for other software/games which don't have built-in support for the G-15, you'll need to download a custom LCD applet in order to display specific software/game info on your LCD when you launch that software/game. You can find good applet at

Hope this helps

Don't forget to do this with your mouse + keyboard !

Easy launch buttons stopped working since I loaded logitch cordless mouse

You should try to be more clear about what "easy launch" buttons you are talking about. I'm guessing you possibly mean on your keyboard(?). At any rate, most launch buttons can be configured and set to what things you want to launch -- so you might try re-configuring them. Logitech software is a huge burdensome set of programs that often takes over in a lot of unexpected ways. If your easy launch is more important to you than some of the Logitech features, you might try uninstalling it and simply using the drivers for your mouse that are already installed in Windows. If you need instructions to do that, repost on this forum.

LX5 Cordless Optical Mouse - Rotation Function not working

Did you try checking the mouse settings via the control panel.

You should have some new software. In the logitech manager you will find a place to edit the mouse buttons.
