Q: Razer firmware update swapped keys on BlackWidow

I have a Razer BlackWidow keyboard Recently I downloaded and installed the latest version of Razer s Synapse on update keys swapped firmware Razer BlackWidow to try and fix this issue I was having with my Naga Lo and behold my Naga issues Razer firmware update swapped keys on BlackWidow were fixed but another problem emerged The new version of Synapse added support for the BlackWidow and also upgraded the firmware But after the upgrade my Windows and Alt keys have been swapped so when Razer firmware update swapped keys on BlackWidow I press one I get the other The only way I ve been able to fix it so far is to use SharpKeys to switch the keys back around but when I connect another keyboard that keyboard now has its Windows and Alt keys swapped It s not that big Razer firmware update swapped keys on BlackWidow of a deal but I do swap to a quieter keyboard late at night from time-to-time and I would really prefer to have it fixed without having to rely on a workaround like this I ve check around and I can t find any information about this issue and Razer s support website is completely useless as usual Likewise I haven t had any luck so far with downgrading the firmware either Does anybody have any idea on what I could do particularly other BlackWidow owners nbsp

Preferred Solution: Razer firmware update swapped keys on BlackWidow

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Can't you just go into Synapse and assign the Windows key to the Alt key and vice versa? All the keys are programmable and hopefully this wouldn't affect your other keyboard.

Since using Win 8 CP I have noticed my keyboard often misses the letter "e" and double types other letters randomly. I am not sure if it is a win 8 problem or coincidence that this has happened since using Win 8.

Razer is completely notorious with drivers. Make sure you are using their latest and if you are already, complain to them.

Hey,

As the title suggests, those two pieces of hardware are heavily conflicting. I don't know whether I'm just doing it wrong, or maybe it's a broken key, conflicting softwares, I don't know. The problem is that whenever I use caps lock (or any other key bound to caps lock), my headset disconnects and reconnects, then disconnects again and reconnects again, and so on.

For now, I have disabled the entire caps lock key, but sometime in the future I would like to be able to use it again. I have updated both Synapse 2.0 and Logitech Gaming Software. I can't find any similar issues on the internet, so I'm wondering if it's just a broken key in the keyboard and if this is fixable in some way that's not sending it back?

Any help on this issue is appreciated, otherwise I'm just going to RMA it and get another keyboard entirely.

Thanks!
~Marty
 

A:Razer BlackWidow and Logitech G35 conflicting

That is very odd, it sounds to me like there is a problem with the specific keyboard. Now im guessing this has happened multiple times so thats why you know it is the caps lock key causing this.

If your sure thats the problem, I would return the keyboard for a new one because I can't think of a way to fix something happening like that.

I'm trying to install my Razer Blackwidow Ultimate 1.04 drivers, and it
comes up with a CMD window displaying the following message.

"A:\Users\Cooper\AppData\Local\Temp>regini Lynn_64Bit.txt
A:\Users\Cooper\AppData\Local\Temp>del Lynn_64Bit.txt

Insert the diskette that contains the batch file
and press any key when ready."

I've even reinstalled a different OS (Windows 7 64Bit Professional) but still it doesn't work which makes me think its not OS related.
And i've been talking with razer support for longer than a month now with no success.
Some help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

So it switched you pc's language as in the gui one to German? Or just the keyboard layout?

Hi everyone Bricked Blackwidow post] [Long Razer 2012 Ultimate Been a very Razer Blackwidow Ultimate 2012 Bricked [Long post] long time since I've been on here and I apologize but here goes I'll try and keep this as short as I can I done goofed and my Black Widow Ultimate is kinda dead I tried firmware downgrading to via firmware updater and killed it I can't be too sure but I think the version it was when it was working was is not available online anywhere I think it only comes with Razer SynapseWhen attempting to update the firmware and I have tried it with the only way it detects the keyboard is by pressing the Fn key If I hold the Fn whilst updating the update process will loop forever and if I let go it doesn't appear to do anything It updates or says it does and then goes to the quot congrats you updated quot screen but the keyboard doesn't light up or respond in anyway and the device will no longer be detected Rebooting proves this as the keyboard remains dead The keyboard as it stands can only be picked up by windows as a quot razer bootloader quot and that is when I press the Fn key Otherwise it stays completely undetected All existing driver software also do not pick up the keyboard at all BWU drivers drivers and Synapse Upon reboot devices screen either reads as Razer bootloader again nothing or an unknown USB device Device Descriptor Request Failed No fix for that other than to unplug and replug the keyboard in again and let it go to the Razer bootloader So basically through the process of using my eyes it looks like the problem is the updater itself Regardless of version and the update appears to actually skip over some parts of the firmware update and then go to the verification screen completion screen The keyboard is essentially wiped but gets appears to get no incoming firmware thus the brickness To make this a bit clearer the firmware update only works if the keyboard is detected in windows as Razer Bootloader Once the update quot completes quot the bootloader actually dissapears complete with the windows sound when a USB is unplugged and the keyboard remains dead until another tap of the Fn key brings back the bootloader also with windows noise acknowledging a USB has been detected Going off peoples suggestions online quot install driver v and firmware v have keyboard in bootloader mode and update it via device manager gt here the suggestion notes that you can use the file quot RzrBtLdr inf quot in the bootloader folder and manually install drivers gt bootloader then gets a icon next to it and apparently synapse will then complete the update of the keyboard quot However although I can install quot something quot using the RzrBtLdr inf file updating the drivers for the bootloader via device manager ends with quot Windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error while attempting to install it This device cannot start Code I don't think thats a good sign I'm really really hoping someone on here has any ideas or a fix that I haven't tried yet My bottom line I need something to install firmware onto the keyboard but Synapse doesn't pick it up and there aren't anymore firmware updaters to use There might be a problem with windows not properly utilizing the updaters or there might just be nothing else I can do with the keyboard But the fact that Fn Razer Bootloader still works suggests it CAN be fixed I have also contacted Razer about this but we'll see if they even reply and I bought the keyboard nd hand so I'm ed if they tell me to RMA I do have usbpcap and wireshark installed and I THINK I've managed to properly record the action of the firmware attempting to update the keyboard I have a pcap file saved if anyone wants to take a look at it but I am NOT familiar with the workings of usbpcap so I may have recorded something else entirely This is where it currently sits

Just resolved this same issue today after 2+ hours of trying to find a solution. While I do not know if you will be able to successfully downgrade (still trying to work that bit out for myself) I found that reinstalling Razer_BlackWidow_Ultimate_FirmwareUpdater_v2.05.03 from Download Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Keyboard Firmware Updater 2.05.03 for Windows XP/Vista/7/8 x86/x64
fixed an otherwise bricked keyboard. Still have to put up with the razer software but its better than 200dollars down the drain.

After rebooting my computer the fn key acts like it is pressed down at all times. I have to press it down to have it act like it is not pressed down. For example, before fn-f5 turned my keyboard back light on or off. f5 refreshed a webpage. But not now. Now f5 turns the backlight on or off while fn-f5 refreshes a web page. This is true of all the f# keys.

Hi! I am new to the forums but I'll get to the point. I am getting a Razer Deathadder 3500 DPI Gaming Mouse for Christmas from amazon.com. I am really excited about it but heard it had driver and firmware issues that could totally break the mouse. What should I do when I receive the mouse? Should I use the CD Drivers, plug in the mouse and then update them from razerzone.com? Should I install the drivers, plug in the mouse, then install the firmware? Should I install the CD, plug in the mouse then install the drivers and firmware from razerzone? I have heard that you should install the drivers and then the firmware. There are just so many wrong ways to do it but could you please tell me the right way? I REALLY DON'T Want this mouse to break the first day. Oh and I don't even know if it comes with a CD

Windows 7 is working flawlessly on my laptop except for my @ and " keys. Whenever I try to type @ it will come up with " and vice versa, anyone experiencing this or know how I can fix it?

A:@ and " keys swapped

you've got your keyboard layout set wrong. This is usually found when a US keyboard layout is selected and its a UK keyboard in use or vice versa, try going into control panel / default location and checking that the country is set right. it might also be something similar in the setup of whichever program you are trying to type in.

This has happened a few times since I upgraded to Windows 10 at the end of October

I will suddenly find that the @ key and the " key have swapped places. To get an ampersand I have to press Shift+quote (next to Enter key) and to get a double quote I have to press Shift+2.

If I logoff and logon the ampersand and double quote will be back where they belong..

I suspect I must occasionally hit a 'magic key sequence' that re-configures the keyboard somehow, but I've no idea what it would be, or what to look for and where to look for evidence of that. The KB is US English.

TIA

A:Weird keyboard problem - keys getting swapped

Do you have the language icon showing at the bottom right in the taskbar? You should be able to select this to quickly change from one keyboard type to another, the behaviour you are seeing is the difference between a US and a UK keyboard layout. Also have a look at your region and language settings, it maybe that you have more than one region/language installed - just remove the one you don't want.

One possible key combination which is doing this is Windows Key + space.

A:Can A Printer Firmware Update And/or Driver Update Be Reversed?

You can go to Device Manager and find the printer and in properties it gives you the option to "roll back" the driver to a previous version. A firmware update and driver update mean 2 different things, to me anyways. My understanding is a firmware update offers "improved" instructions to the onboard chip of the device. What does HP say about the problem?

I don't know much about firmware updates as I never had to do it but my DRW-2014L1Tburners are giving me some coasters in vista x64. Not 1 coaster under Nero 6 in xp pro.

I got the driver update listing in the sticky, went to the asus site to check on a firmware update for my burner's for x64 vista and there are 3 hopefully that will eliminate the coasters.

My question is: If I get the updates for the 64-bit vista will that interfere with those drives when I use xp pro ?

Following the instructions from the Crucial site, I downloaded the update (it's an ISO file) and burned it to a CD. In the BIOS, changed boot order to CD drive first. Restarted the laptop. No joy - Windows still boots to the desktop. What could be wrong? I know almost nothing about using ISO files. TIA.

I also checked update history and the firmware is not yet included. I tried it again the next morning, clicked the update button, but still, it just says updating and can go on until you close the portal.  Any solution? Did my Aspire really did reflash? It seemed nothing has changed. Thanks in advance!

I periodically check the website for my router to see if there are any new firmware updates. I checked it today and every time i try it says :
A New Version is Found. Do You Want to Upgrade to the New Version Now?

Firmware Version:
Current VersionV1.2.0.8 New VersionV1.2.3.7

I click Yes.
It then tells me that the update failed.
Any suggestions?

I am running an XP machine.
I have Verizon DSL.
I have a Westell model 2200 modem and a netgear wnr2000 router.

Any other information you need i will try my best to provide. Just ask.

Hello, I have recently purchased an "Onyx Portable Media Player" by "Mach Speed Technologies". I installed the included drivers and software and am currently upgrading the firmware. The update window says "SigmaTel MSCN Firmware", so I'm assuming it's licensed by SigmaTel. It's updating from version 000.000.000 to 880.282.433. The window's progress bar seems to be stuck at "Initializing", with no advances made in the main progress bar but the smaller one constantly filling and then refilling. Is this just going to take a long time or is there something wrong?

I can provide a screenshot if needed.

I have an Olympus Evolt-500 that won't update the firmware. I'm running XP pro with a DSL internet connection. I've talked to every tech support person Olympus has and they don't have a clue what's wrong.

It will recognize the camera and lenses but it will download from 50% to 83% of the firmware update, then a message pops up and says no connection to server and everything shuts off. They had me try the download with no firewall on and using just the modem no router. I've used Olympus Viewer, Olympus Master and Olympus Studio Trial version and they all download about the same amount before they shut down.

HP-Update FIRMWARE update problem?
I got some critical update for my Seagate 320 gb hard drive?s firmware. I went to download an process the update, later it asked me to insert a blank disk. Well I don?t have a blank disk but I hit bootable cd anyway thinking it would create some file on the hard drive. Well obviously that?s not what it had in mind because my disk drive opened, I shut the disk drive and it started saying writing data to disk. HOW could it do that with no disk. I couldn?t close it. It then said installation succesfull. What the heck. I restarted my computer to see if I had screwed up my system and it seams to be running fine. Have I screwed up my hard drive? Did the dang update install? Can I delete these firmware updte files lying around on my desktop? Please help me????

It is ok.

I dont know what happened, but You HAVE to burn the bootable disk, and then boot into it after a restart in order to update the firmware.

You perform the firmware update from within the router's web user interface. Log into the router and there should be a option under one of the menus to upload new firmware to the unit.

A:Firmware update gone wrong

Newer BIOS chips have what is called a boot block sector. When flashing the BIOS this part is not flashed. Basically all it does is run the floppy drive, and if you are lucky you will also get basic video. I have re-flashed a "dead" BIOS with this. The MB was manufactured in 1998. The first attempt at flashing failed-nothing but beeps on restart. I downloaded the correct Bios update, made a new floppy to flash the BIOS and reran the flash program. There was nothing on the monitor, just a black screen, but I could hear the floppy drive being accessed. Follow the flash utility instructions and let it do its' thing. It took several long minutes, but it worked.

I'm providing this link below. Do not hold me or vistax64 responsible.
Wim's BIOS Page: BIOS Upgrades, Motherboard identification and more...

Finally, you can approach your manufacturer of your PC or bios to purchase a replacement.

First of all a firmaware update is not a "driver". all optical drives use the windows native drivers and only MS updates that. I have never seen a firmware update as you describe open a command prompt window. if Pioneer actually uses this method then you will probably have to set the command prompt to the location of your drive. ie; type the locaion ( drive letter of the drive you are updating) if your pioneer is the D drive then you would type D:\ and then press enter

Last night I went ahead and took the plunge ... Updated the Firmware on my Archos 70 Internet Tablet 250GB (2.1.3 - Android 2.2.1).

My tablet still worked after the update. Slower than before though.

This morning I found out that I can't get online!

None of my four radio apps work (they all worked fine before).

Bible.is no longer works.

All three of my browsers no longer work.

Firmware Update doesn't work (can't connect to the Internet).

Wi-Fi shows that my Archos is connected to my Internet service. My son and I are both online with our computers, so there is nothing wrong with our Internet connection.

Looks like I have no choice now, but to reformat the Archos and start all over again (for the 4th time!!!!) .... That will be very time consuming, as I will have to download all of my many apps all over again, and then reload all of my files all over again ....

gang I've been web-searching for updated firmware or a way to do it on Hitachi travelstar internal 2.5" hdd... I have one that is producing frequent read errors, but running chkdsk the drive is 'squeaky clean' from a surface standpoint. I was hoping I might update..... can't find a thing

this drive failed the HP builtin [BIOS] HD tests, short and long, and failed the HGST diags tests, short and long [though the SMART status was all rosey ] Specifically the tests point to read-access failures which produce a string of Windows 7 system 'critical' events since the OS timing is scrambled by fetches that return no response.

nagging in the back of my brain is an ugly scenario: what if the issue is with the Mboard component? what would clue me in that the drive interface is at issue ? disc is a lot more likely I agree but it just doesn't feel like an ordinary disk fail

A:Trying to update firmware on Crucial C300...

Just a note of caution, I would recommend doing a full system image before updating the firmware especially since you are having issues.
I am not advocating updating the BIOS on the Dell, but have you checked Dell's website and the associated release notes for any/all Bios upgrades?

Samsung has recently posted firmware update EXM03B6Q for the 850 Pro on the download site.
I was unable to update via Magician so downloaded the ISO and ran it from a USB drive.
I was one of the lucky ones who didn't update to EXM02B6Q in Feb of 2015 which was a total disaster.
The update worked without any problems and speeds have not changed at all.
There is also a PDF installation guide for those who like to read first.
Don't forget to image the SSD first just in case. I did not, however loose data but better safe than sorry.

Anyway the software that came with the Blu Ray How do you know if a firmware update actually installed properly? Drive came with How do you know if a firmware update actually installed properly? the LG Tool Kit When I first got the drive I used it to auto look for firmware updates It found one update to make the drive compatible with Windows It says that the update was successful but I m unsure whether that s the case or not as I can t find out where to find out which firmware I have right now So I have tried everything to fix the stuttering issue with the two Blu Rays I ve updated Java upgraded the Blu Ray playing software updated graphics drivers switched off tons of start up programs and still Terminator Salvation and The Dark Knight stutter It doesn t make sense because TS spikes at percent CPU usage all the time and is percent So should I just go to the LG website and manually download the firmware update Or will that damage my drive Compaq Presario Intel Celeron D GHz Windows Vista Basic SP GB Ram GB Hard Drive Nvidia BFG GeForce GT GB PCI-E Driver BFG Watt Power Supply Samsung p Monitor digital driver X BD-ROM LG Ultra BLue Alhena Motherboard nbsp

A:How do you know if a firmware update actually installed properly?

Nero Info Tool should tell you the drive's firmware: http://www.nero.com/enu/support-nero8-tools-utilities.html
You can also run that same firmware update utility and I think it tells you if the firmware versions and if there's a newer version.

You can try the WinDVD trial: http://www.corel.com/servlet/Satellite/ca/en/Product/1189528458632#versionTabview=tab1&tabview=tab4

You have a weak CPU and that may be the problem.

I downloaded the firmware update for my CD/DVD writer. Burned it to a CD per the instructions and restarted the PC with the CD in. The PC restarts, reads the CD and then... nothing. No on-screen instructions, nothing.

The CD/DVD drive is bootable per the bios.

Any idea how to make this work?

This is a follow up in a way I had asked about the N-routers and how to get good reception in a large house Based on the responses and reviews of this router Linksys WRT GL I chose this one router to do the trick with the option of installing another one upstairs to increase coverage if needed The price of of these was cheaper than one N router or a router and repeater The Lisksys software is pretty lame I was able to get my computer hooked up fairly easily but my roommate could not get online which is more important as update WRT54GL for Linksys Firmware I am on the road all the time and he is stuck at home I Firmware update for Linksys WRT54GL reset the router before I left so hopefully he can get himself hooked up before I get home in days The coverage seems great I get very good or excellent in all corners of the house I see things about installing a second party firmware to improve it further Any suggestions about which firmware and details about how to update and use this firmware Thanks nbsp

A:Firmware update for Linksys WRT54GL

You need to find out why your roomate can not connect. Is it becasue of bad coverage? But, you said the coverage is great. If it is a secure network and your roomate is using the correct password/key, and if the coverage is great, then some setting issue must be dealt with in the roomate's computer.

Why do you need third party firmware for your router? That may not solve your roomate's problem, becasue as I said, it could be in roomate's computer. I have heard using third party firmware on Linksys gives much more features. One of them is to increase the power out of the router. But, again, all those feature may not help you with the problme that your have.

First do this on your computer, then on roomate's:

Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

Type the following command:

Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

A:Unable to install the firmware update

Make sure that all other ATAPI devices are disconnected, if possible. If the drive is no longer under warranty, try the PS0B stock flash from CodeGuys. Using this patched version may invalidate any warranty.

But, what is the reason for the upgrade? They just as often as not lead to problems.

I have an ADATA S510 120gig SSD, i tried downloading the Firmware upgrade tool seen on this page

S510 SATA 6Gb/s Solid State Drive, Download, S510, 500 Series, Solid State Drive, Welcome to ADATA

I opened the tool and it didnt find my SSD drive. I then downloaded the file itself to try and manually install it but it is a "VIC" file, i dont even know how to open it.

Does anyone have experience with updating their firmware on these SSD drives? What am i doing wrong?
edit: after digging around on my machine i found that i have firmware 3.3.2 which is apparently the latest firmware out there right now (i didnt know that till i just found this info out, this machine is 2 weeks old)

A:Can't update firmware on ADATA S510 SSD

I started my PC with a Linux live DVD (Knoppix) because my ADATA S510 SSD Device is my boot device and device with OS (W7).
So I run the Linux version of the updater (you must be root!) and all worked fine!
But: please check the signature (for example 22739) - it has to be in the filename of the firmware update!
Good luck

PS: my drive was not 3.3.2....now it is! I hope my problems (bluescreen) are gone now!

Hi,

I've noticed a slow down in my Plextor PX-708A and thought that installing the latest firmware would a good idea.

The firmwares listed on the plextor site only listed for:

* PX-712A/SA/UF

* PX-708A2/UF2

* PX-708A/UF

* PX-504A/UF

http://www.plextor.be/technicalservices/downloads/firmw_dvdrec.asp?choice=DVD-Recorders

As far as i am aware my drive is just a Plextor PX-708A drive.
What are the 708A/UF 708A/UF2 drives??? How do i know if my drive is one of these?

Matt.
 

A:Need to update firmware? Plextor PX-708A2/UF2??

Looking at this site:

http://www.plextor.be/products/dvd_recorders/px-708a.asp?choice=PX-708A

You'll find that the "A" model is the IDE internal drive, and the UF & UF2 models are external USB/Firewire drives.

However, following the link from PX-708A to firmware upgrades did not show a download for the "A" model, only for the others.

I suspect that if your drive is not listed here: ALL FIRMWARE UPDATES - see here - Seagate Community Forums
Which I don't see, a firmware update is not needed nor compatible with the update.

Hello, I had no problems with the touchpad in my first two months of owning this computer. Recently when I try to use the touchpad, the cursor bounces all over the place and I have no control over it. This is espescially annoying when I am at work and need this to work correctly when I am gathering data in an excel doc. I noticed there was a 1.17 firmware update for the synaptics driver in the care center, but when I click to install it will run for a second and then say "failed". Just updated BIOS and every other driver I could think of but it makes no difference.

A:Touchpad firmware update VN7-592G

Hi ! Have you trying Unistalling the driver for the Touchpad? Must of the times unistalling the drivers and restarting your unit will actually fix the issue. If you access the Device Manager (Press Windows key +X)> Select Device Manager > Mice and other pointer device, Right Click> Unistall> Restart. Some updated on Windows sometimes will disable the proper Drivers for your unit. Hope this could help you!

Hi!

It took me almost one hour to find this firmware update for my ADSL modem so that's why I uploaded it to Skydrive and make it hopefully a little bit easier for you.

My modem kicked me of the web a few times every day and then it also had a "broken internet connection" so that there was a little yellow notification triangle on the network adapters icon even if the "internet providers" signal was ok it couldn't connect...

Any how, I updated the firmware and I have been running it for a few days now and no connection problems.

Here is the link and there is also a manual included (and in the comments you can see a really short description on how to update the firmware).

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
Sorry to hear of the problem you are having.  Are you sure you got a BIOS Update from Windows Update?  If you did, that is a scary thought.  Windows 10 is good for giving you OS and driver updates whether you want them or not. Giving a BIOS Update is kind of over stepping their bounds IMHO.
 
Have you tried this.....
1. Unplug the charger / adapter. 2. Press and hold the Power Button for 15 seconds. 3. Plug in and power up the system to see if the problem was resolved.
 
If that didn't correct the problem, can you access the BIOS Setup by repeatedly tapping the F1 key when you first power up the computer.  If you can access the BIOS Setup then your problem is most likely an operating system problem with a driver update Microsoft gave you.

I flashed my Toshiba slim-drive SD-C2502 DVD-ROM with the latest firmware from Dell's website.

After it didn't work and it gives me the IDE #1 error before booting to Windows XP. I know I can eject before the error message but after that, it just doesn't eject at all nor detected.

I tried flashing it again but there is no drive it can detect to flash it. From the past, it seems like no way but I was hoping I can force flash it perhaps?

Any other suggestions would be grateful.
