There is a 3 year warranty for the sidewinder X6. Before you do anything drastic, I would try that. I only take my scalpel to my electronics once the warranty is gone

I was thinking about somehow setting up a macro like that, but i'm not sure how to do that. And thanks NI3 didnt know how long the warrenty is, so i will definately call Microsoft on Monday. I bought the board last Black Friday, so it is clearly in that warranty period.

Here is how you ensure it is not a macro issue. Open the utility for the keyboard and try and reset it to initial conditions. If not, uninstall and reinstall the packaged ultils for your keyboard.

Good luck.

I reset it but no luck. Also checked what comes up in the macro editor and it says w and space. Not sure how to assign a macro to change "w " to "w".

Also reinstalled intellitype and same issue, I called up microsoft and they said the keyboard might soon get discountinued so they might no be able to send a replacement. He said he could give me a refund, butw i dont think i will be able to find the receipt. Even that i would prefer a replacement then a refund :(
