To find out if it is the same keyboard twice:
1. Click Start Menu
2. Right Click My Computer
3. Click Manage
4. Click Device Manager (from the list on the left)
5. Click on Keyboards
6. Right click each of the instances and go to Properties
7. Go to the Details tab
8. Compare the Service (driver) for each from the Property drop down

They both say kbdhid. If I remove one the keyboard will still work, but when I reboot the second one comes back.

And just FYI I just updated my chipset drivers to the latest.

Do you have the software that came with your keyboard? If it is already installed, you might try uninstalling that through add/remove programs and then reinstalling it:

1. Click Start Menu
2. Click Control Panel
3. Under Programs->Uninstall a program
4. Find your logitech software
5. Click uninstall
6. Restart
7. Put in your disc
8. Install the Logitech software

If you did not install the software yet, try doing so now.

I had actually forgot to install the software after the format but I just did and they're both still there, I even uninstalled them both again after installing the setpoint software but they just came right back.

I agree that the keyboard issue is odd. Run an elevated command prompt:
1. Click Start Menu
2. Click All Programs
3. Click Accessories
4. Right click Command Prompt
5. Click Run as administrator
6. Type into command prompt “set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1″ without quotes
7. Hit enter.
8. Type “devmgmt.msc” without quotes
9. Click View (at the top)
10. Check Show hidden devices
11. Click the + next to Keyboards

Are there any grey (faded) keyboards listed? If so, uninstall them (and check the box if asked if you want to delete the driver software for the device).

Edit: When finished, go back to View and uncheck Show hidden devices

I did that sfc thing twice and no errors both times.

I looked for hidden keyboards and there was one, exactly the same as the others so I uninstalled it. I am now left with the 2 I had before.

Do the same method, showing hidden devices, and see if the faded one returned. Then uninstall all three and see if that fixes the issue.

Hidden one didn't return, and I just tried uninstalling them all but on reboot the 2 active ones returned.

Run sfc /scannow a third time if you have not already. Then reboot and test to see if you continue to have BSODs. If you do, you may need to do a Repair Install.
