    did they ever come up with a fix for this problem?

    I have a asus Z170 gaming board and on boot I started noticing from day one out of the box, three keyboards and two mice LOL
    it's kind of funny, yet really sad on asus's part.

    1) To aid detection you can try setting USB to "Full Initial" in UEFI. Thsi will scan all USB ports at each POST cycle.

    2) The USB 2.0 ports work better than USB 3.0 for some keyboards. all current USB 3.0 ports have issues with some 2.0/3.0 devices, comes down to firmware needing improvements etc. Best to stick with 2.0 for 2.0 input devices if you're having issues.

    can someone please tell me what Raja@ASUS means by "Full Initial" in UEFI. now do I find this setting on the z170 pro gaming aura board. am having problems with my Christmas keyboard lights and need a Christmas miracle.. other wise Christmas is off people! just trying to lighten up. don't feel like going out and buying a new keyboard on black Friday.

    I also have 2 keyboards showing in the Device Manager which I can't remove. My only guess is that I have a Ducky mechanical keyboard with LED lighting so I'm thinking it needs a 2nd USB power source to enable lighting. Hmm, I haven't tried a USB 3.0 port since those provide more power than USB 2.0.

    To those who have this issue, are your keyboards basic or fancy with LED lighting, USB hubs, etc.?

    I've encountered this problem too, on a new rig that I've put together for my mother.
    The motherboard is a 'Asus Z170-P' (with latest BIOS v3017), and when booting it says "2 Keyboards".

    There are only two USB devices connected to this computer..
    * A 'Logitech K310' keyboard (no fancy LEDs or anything)
    * A 'Logitech G303' mouse

    Don't know if the issues that I'll be describing here has to do with the "2 Keyboards" thingy, but I've encountered some serious issues, which just might be related to hardware detection.

    This new rig that I've built ran just fine the first day, until I installed an extra DVD drive (a 'LiteOn iHAS124-14').
    ..then the problems begun.
    For the most part, the computer refused to start (no reaction when pressing the power button).
    It seemed to have a mind of its own, and would only start up when it felt like it.
    Naturally, I disconnected the newly installed DVD drive, but to no use.
    So, I cleared the CMOS and it seemed to be OK again.
    But the next day, the problems were back..
    Not only would it refuse to start, but when it did, it would boot to the UEFI, and sometimes the monitor wouldn't even turn on!

    I searched up and applied some recommended UEFI settings (which apparenly have fixed similar problems for other Asus motherboard owners):
    * Fast Boot: Disabled
    * Launch CSM: Auto
    ..and I've set the primary hard drive (an Intel SSD 540s 480GB) as the first boot device.
    Seems OK again for now, but I don't trust it, and I really don't like the idea of using such an unstable motherboard.

    After contacting the shop where I bought it, I got a refund, and I've ordered a 'MSI Z170A PC MATE' instead.

    The 'Asus Z170-P' is the second Asus motherboard I've bought (the previous one was a 'Asus Rampage IV Black Edition'), and both boards have suffered from major issues!
    With the 'Asus Rampage IV Black Edition' I were unable to use more than two RAM modules (2x4GB)..
    When installing four modules (4x4GB), Win8.1Pro,x64 would just crash all the time!
    Of course, I tested the modules, and they were all OK.
    Also, these were 'Corsair CMD16GX3M4A2800C12' modules, which are specifially listed by Asus to be compatible with the motherboard.
    I though that the issue might get fixed in a BIOS update, but no..
    The last BIOS for this board was a beta version, released back in July, 2014.
    They didn't even bother to provide one last stable release.

    Don't reckon I'll ever be buying a third Asus motherboard. :(

    And BTW; This forum is messed up too!:

    Thanks for your contribution. I guess we have no choice but either to put up with what appears to be a cosmetic issue, or try a different manufacturer.

    Like I said; I don't know if the problems that I had with the 'Asus Z170-P' were related to the "2 Keyboards" phenomenon, but it definitely had some hardware detection issues.

    On top of that, it couldn't even keep time properly (the date and clock kept changing after each reboot).
    I took out the battery and tested it, and it was OK, so I've got no idea what might have been causing it.

    Anyway, I've replaced the 'Asus Z170-P' with a 'MSI Z170A PC MATE' now, and it's rock stable!
    Not only is this MSI board a bit cheaper than the Asus board, but it comes with more connectors too:
    * 6 SATA ports (vs 4 on the Asus board)
    * 6 USB 3.0 ports at the back (vs 2x2.0 + 2x3.0 on the Asus board)
    * 3 SYSFAN, a.k.a. CHAFAN connectors (vs 2 on the Asus board)
    * 2 CPUFAN connectors (vs 1 on the Asus board)

    - Problem solved!

    Glad to see you were able to get your PC running stable. I'll also be considering either MSI or Gigabyte in the near future.

    This is an intended feature of advanced keyboards to allow N-Key rolling they emulate many keyboards to do so.
