    RoG Claymore 2 - modular numpad constantly spamming an input


    I bought an Asus RoG Claymore 2 last week, noticed the number 3 key didn't work on the keypad, but later found out the number was was constantly being spammed.

    I tried to fathom why it didn't work so restarted PC, thought maybe the 3 on my Naga was being pressed and stopping it etc so eventually restarted the PC again this is when I tried to google Asus support it came out as "A3sus". This got me thinking as I didn't type number 3. So restated PC once again, tried to use google, didnt type anything only to get "3" spammed. I tried to press 3 to stop it (had similar issues in games were character would continue to walk forward from a W press when I released and would press it again to reset the input) but this didnt stop it spamming "3", I press 123 on the numpad and this gave me the input of 12 and 3 stopped spamming. This is when number 3 didnt work at all. Here is what I tried:

    - Taking the modular numpad off and installing it again causes the numpad to spam "3".
    - Using the modular keypad on the opposite side resulted in same error
    - All drivers were up to date and also firmware
    - Pressing any other key resulted in the 3 key stopping it spamming the input on screen
    - The FN key didnt work with the numpad attached, FN worked without the numpad installed
    - Tested this theory by holding H down, letting it spam in notepad and stopping it by pressing G, as I kept the H down I tried to use the FN key which didn't work.
    - This acted like my number 3 numpad issue meaning the numpad was constantly sending a signal for 3

    I tried the forums, 1 post about the volume key not working another about 2, 5,8 not working but worked the next day.

    I contacted Asus support, they responded very fast suggesting it might be a mechanical issue and to return it to place of purchase.

    I returned the keyboard for a replacement, now received a new keyboard which the same exact issue but number 5 on the keypad.

    I have tried the keyboard without armory crate, updated armory crate and even used a friends PC which has no gaming software installed and the issue persisted.

    I have determined this issue is related to either the keyboard receiving a signal when in full keyboard setup or the numpad sending a bad signal or just that specific switch has been through poor quality control and constantly activating.

    Has anyone else come across an issue like this? I really like the Claymore 2 and honestly don't think I can get my hopes up that the 3rd one won't have an issue.

    Edit- UK keyboard layout if that makes any difference

    I have been having issues with mine though in my case it seems the Down Arrow key gets locked intermittently (on mainboard). i.e Ill be on a webpage or game and suddenly it is as if I have the down arrow key pressed hard (like sticky key). In my case the issue stops/corrects after I spam the windows key but always returns randomly. ASUS Support suggested I do a reset by holding the FN and ESC key for 10seconds, though this hasn't had any effect longterm. I am unsure if issue is software/hardware based at this point.

    Mine is also UK layout (Bought from OCuK)

    A not perfect solution

    So I have the same problem its is definitely software related in my case the best fix I could find was I disabled the down arrow key in a profile I have set up I don't use the arrow keys so while imperfect its the best I could do!

    For me, the letter "i" keeps writing even if I don't even touch it, especially if the numerical part moves. This is scumbag for that much money. I'm waiting for the new firmware patch and I trust in a miracle that it will solve it, because I also suspect a software problem. the problem was slightly improved if I increased the keystroke speed in Windows, i.e. to make it slower, but it did not eliminate it.

    Have you guys tried resetting your ROG Claymore II by pressing and holding the Fn+ESC keys for 15 seconds?
