    Would like a gaming keyboard in excellent condition. Would also be good if it had basic media keys like pause play next/previous track.

    Cheers

    I have a sidewinder x6, its the English/German one I think £18 posted as I have no box and its the English/German one.

    I would need to look it out to definitely tell if its the English/German could be English and something else but I had no problems and I'm Scottish so even English is a struggle

    Yes, interested in it although the punctuation keys look weird and the fact it has 3 "A"s lol

    also like the detachable numpad.

    No problem, just when your ready bud, I know jumping on the first offer is never a great idea, leave the thread a few days and bump etc and know you can fall back on me if need be, who knows you could get offered a g19 or similar for a great price.

    If you don't mind the Aesthetic of it wilkinsons have got a gaming keyboard for under a tenner.

    Basically has simple anti ghosting decent latency and coloured WASD keys but very good for the price.

    You tried taking all the keys off and cleaning?

    Sorry just read toms... I had an issue long time ago kinda similar, I started the on screen keyboard (turned it on @ startup, just a precaution ) unplugged my keyboard and deleted the drivers, plugged it back in and it installs, worked for me.


    LOL, the v5 its got volume keys..... don't know it that really counts though. I like play/pause buttons, rewind/ fast forward etc

    This is going to sound silly but have you tried unplugging resetting and then plugging the keyboard back in?

    Had a similar issue once and that fixed it.

    That's what me and my mates call a drunk keyboard; when you press x and it types hjhdff lol
    Oli you could just chuck the keyboard in a dishwasher (no soap etc.) and let it dry out. Does wonders.

    JustaTinkerer - could I have second refusal on the keyboard if Oli doesn't want it please?
