Keyboard types "w " when i press "w"
 
I have had this issue for a week now.... Really annoying. Also sometimes when i press space the keyboard auto puts in "w "

I have never seen this type of thing before anyone know what i should do?

On-Screen Keyboard doesn't do this. Just when i type with my keyboard. Sidewinder x6

Thanks.

Adding a space afterwards....

Is it a font issue? Type the w and hit backspace...does the space erase, or the w?

If the on screen keyboard doesn't do it, it's a short in the keyboard.

Either RMA it or give it a good cleaning. Either take it apart for cleaning or throw it in the dishwasher and let it dry out for a while. (the latter isn't recommended if you value your keyboard)

So if you play a fps game are you constantly running forward and jumping?

matthew2180 December 17, 2011 12:05 PM

there is a w and a space. If i backspace it just only erases the space. I do not play FPS and/or heavily use a single key like w. It also sometimes happens when i hit space as well, it is actually doing that right now as i was typing this.Short would make sence, ive had the keyboard for a year, so i doubt it is still under warranty.Don't know how i would take it apart though i have a Sidewinder x6

alternate solution:

I see your keyboard is a programable macro keyboard. You may have macrod "w space" to your w key. On the fly macro keyboards can sometimes do this via user error (i know from experience with my blackwidow)

Great idea! You may have fudged something up by accident.
