View Full Version : Keyboard trouble onmy G74S

09-21-2012, 04:21 PM
got a G74S. Great machine, but one very annoying problem:

the SPACE bar takes long to react, so while typing most words end up being connected.

Any proposal how to fix that?

Just got off a transatlantic flight - opened laptop again and now my "d" "e" and "esc" keys are not 100% working anymore.

They do work when I hit them real hard or when I keep them pressed longer.
Already re-installed ATK drivers and the keyboard filters, but I'm guessing it's a hardware issue.
Any pointers on how to go in and check if everything is still connected properly or maybe there's some junk clogging up the internals ? (like a piece of a cookie or something :p)

Might be related to OP issue, that's why I'm posting it here.
edit: I'm on a G73sw

http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?9245-Cause-of-unresponsive-sluggish-keys-on-G74&highlight=Keymaster discusses "hard to press" keys. If you do choose to remove a key, be very careful. They break easily.

Keyboard lag, which can result in missed keystrokes can be caused by DPC Latency. This can be troubleshot with DPC Latency Checker.
