This isn't a major issue but every once in a while my keyboard will skip a single key. I had the same issue on my previous ASUS U36E-BBK5 but it was much more severe. Is this a problem on all ASUS Laptops, if so, is there any known fix? As I said, it isn't often that it skips a key but it does get aggravating.

No Help at all?

I don't mean to sound flippant or anything, but considering no one else seems to be having this issue, have you considered that maybe it's an issue with the way you type?

When I was shopping/researching for my new laptop I came across Chris Sutton's customer review of the G75vw-DS73-3D at Amazon:

" ... The keyboard has a nice feel to it, but occasionally will not register a button press (I think this is a result of not pressing hard enough) ... "

This may not be particularly helpful, but at least we know you're not alone.

Here's a relevant thread on a G74SX keyboard: http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?9245-Cause-of-unresponsive-sluggish-keys-on-G74&highlight=Keymaster. I suspect they are very similar to G75 keyboards.

Hi,

Yes, I have found the same experience typing on the G75. I came from an Alienware M17x R1 and it has a more traditional keyboard as opposed to the chiclet style. I get the occasional missed key and the one that bugs me the most is many times, the shift key does not register and I don't get a capital letter when I want one.

I think the problem is maybe something like 25 parts POS cheaply made keyboard and 75 parts new user not quite used to the chiclet style. This keyboard does seem to require more pressure on the keys than what I'm used to.

Here is the previous thread regarding flaky keyboard.
