Amazon package arrived today, plugged in the keyboard and T,Y, LShift and Backspace do not work/register input. (Windows 10 64bit).

So i tried the following.


Installed the driver and updated the firmware. Did not fix the issue.
Used the ASUS software to manually map the keys. Did not fix the issue. (i needed to use a 2nd functional keyboard to enter t,y etc. This also proved it isn't software related)
Tried the Keyboard on a 2nd PC running Win10 64bit. Did not fix the issue.


Any ideas with a fix or have I imported (at great expense) a faulty $229USD keyboard?

Does the ASUS international warranty cover this top end keyboard in Australia?

FYI - Before i ordered this keyboard from the US I contacted ASUS Australia and asked about this keyboards local availabilty. I received the worst customer service response I've ever seen so decided to purchase from the US. ASUS have 13 local distributors in Australia, i wonder if they know this is the quality of customer service ASUS hand out for product enquiries:

EDIT* I'm rereading this a day later and apologise for the snarkiness. I was clearly dissapointed at the time as i was excited to receive the KB hehe.
Ps - I also checked all the ports for possible short circuit causing debris...no luck.
Anyway....it's most likely a manufacturing fault so I have raised a ticket to return it to Amazon....bummer.

Strangely for a 6month old keyboard the ROG Horus GK2000 RGB seems quite hard to find in stock anywhere.

i'd love to hear from an ASUS rep regarding:

a) Does the ASUS international warranty cover the ROG Horus GK2000 RGB in Australia?
b) Has the ROG Horus GK2000 RGB gone end of life which is why it isn't availalbe anywhere?

Thanks.
