    Hey guys. In the last couple of days i have annoyingly had to go without a backspace button. Out of no where three functions stopped working after changing a tube on my watercooling loop

    Backspace/Mute button & the volume wheel.

    However to my surprise this morning when doing a bit of tweeking in the bios, when i made a mistake on the num pad out of 17 years of habit i pressed the backspace key, and it worked.

    I instantly went back into windows only to find it still not working.

    The keyboard is a corsair k60 and ive owned it for around a year and half.

    Does anyone have any idea if this is a problem being caused by windows or something else? as i don't think the mechanical switch itself is dead.

    specs in sig

    any help will be great

    Go into device manager and make sure there and no little yellow question marks next to any of the devices.

    Did you have a CD with your keyboard when originally purchased? Try reinstalling the software. I have programable keys on my keyboard and had similar problems when the drivers crashed.
