Sounds like a bad keyboard. There is not much you can do except for replacing it.

Game slowing down at random times


  • Many users while playing a game on there computer seem to notice that it slows down at random times throughout game-play, This common on most computer as users seem to forget about other applications running on there computer.
  • If your CPU is not fast enough and you are running many applications while your game is running you will notice the game isn't responding as fast as it should, The best way to solve this is disable all programs which you are not using including MSN messenger and any browser or File sharing/Torrent Application.
  • Also make sure your anti-virus is configured not to scan automatically otherwise it may start scanning while you are in game and cause dramatic lag, Most anti-virus's will provide an gamers profile which you can activate to prevent certain anti-virus features while you are playing your game.

The number key does not work even after changed the batteries. And the back space button and some of the keys don't work unless you push hard on them.


Look for dirt or grit under the keys, use a can of compressed air to clean out the keyboard. To use the number pad, you have to ensure that the NumLock button has been turned ON.

If the keys still dont seem to work, remove batteries and type randomly over keyboard for about 20secs. Now reinsert the batteries (ensure correct orientation), and reconnect the KB with dongle by pressing the connect button on dongle first and then on the KB. Make sure there is no source of interference nearby, such as speakers, powerful magnets, etc.

If the KB still does not function properly, uninstall and reinstall the software. Still wont function? KB is defective. Contact Logitech regarding an RMA if within the warranty period.

Keys are slow to respond


Not entirely sure about the speed of typing issue but if you're using a lower speed PC the more secure sites may simply present too much of a load to run smoothly, If you provide your specs I can likely be a little more help. As for the scroll sign, that is the sign that pops up whenever you touch the right portion of your mousepad, it works like the wheel in the middle of a regular mouse.

If you're resting your hands on the mouse pad or next to it you're likely activating the scroll without realizing it.

Hope this helps and feel free to reply back with your computers specs if you'd like me to try and help with the speed issue as well.

Slow response time


When your MacBook is showing some performance issues, it can be caused by either hardware or system problems. If you don't want to pay for hardware upgrade, then try cleaning the system to improve the Macbook speed. Learn more here: http://www.speedupmacbook.com/

My system is not responding !


Could be any number of probems, and it would depend on exactly what type of system you have, (memory, cpu). Also, systems will have the tendency to slow down over time. It is good to reformat and reinstall the OS every few years or so, but depending on how much the computer gets used. Some times system slow downs can be as simple as installing a new program in a system. Some anti-virus software will bogg a system down because it uses so much resources. If your system is randomly slowing down, especially on start-up, I would suggest that you hit Control-Alt-Delete, and then see what process is running that is taking up most of you CPU resources during that moment. You can also go to Start-Run and then type in MSCONFIG and turn things off during start-up--but be careful. I turn off things that I don't need to constantly run, such as MS Office, and things that I am sure won't affect my system.

Keyboard not responding or typing random letters


Sounds like the liquid has acted like a glue. You will need to get a cotton bud and dip it into some clean water. Try and clean the hole again and see if it still playing up. Also restart the computer and retry word to see if the same thing is happening.

Keyboard not responding or typing random letters


You have stuck keys from when you removed to clean. Remove the stuck keys and see if it works OK when you press the rubber cap instead of key
The back space one may have a link under it if it is a wide one ensure it is fitted correctly
