Question about Saitek Eclipse II
I have a Saitek Eclipse keyboard that is approximately 1 year old. Yesterday certain keys stopped working, the space bar, 'n' key, 'd' key, about 5 in total but not sure exactly which ones they were now. Today I took the keys off, blew the dirt off from under the keys, soaked the keys in warm soapy water, rinsed them and allowed them to air dry on a clean towel. I pushed the keys back into place and it worked flawlessly for just over 3 hours. I did a fair amount of typing in this time and then suddenly the same keys stopped working again. An important note is in both instances that those keys stopped working I had just opened Mozilla Thunderbird and was in the process of responding to an email. Actually, both times the email was from the same person as well. I have disconnected both my mouse and keyboard, uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers for each using generic drivers. As far as I know there is no driver issued by Saitek for this keyboard. After 2 years the following keys have become intermitant Space, V,B,N,M,/ I have taken keybaord apart and all seems ok, clean and wires ok.
This could very well be your OS as much as your keyboard. Try another board for a few days and see if it still happens. IF not...you found your culprit. Replace the keyboard or look for updated drivers if they exist.
