Darklite I just answered a fairly similar query and I went looking for a driver for the Coolermaster Gaming keyboard in that thread - but couldn't find any so have you tried contacting Coolermaster for an answer or driver?

I might suggest too you disable the AVG and then try again.

You could also try updating the drivers for the motherboard MSI Global ? Motherboard - X58 Pro-E 64

But first try SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker then
Disk Check

I have tried every single usb port on the computer including all the usb 3.0 connections.

To SandeepP:
NUM lock has been enabled from the start. There is light that comes from the keyboard when it boots up but none of the buttons will work until the system is at windows. I will load the BIOS default and update you about that.

Thank you all for the replies and the information to help solve my problem.
Is this your keyboard ? Turn Off num lock before pressing delete key !

Hello, ICit2lol
I actually uninstalled my AVG since then and there still has been problems. The motherboard drivers are all up to date. I will give the system check and driver check a try and will post about it. Thank you.

Hello UNS,
That is almost the exact same keyboard I have. Just a tad bit different. I will try that but I doubt it will do anything. The keyboard itself is unresponsive pre-windows. None of the buttons work. Thank you.

Hi darkelite,

Kindly perform the steps suggested by ICit2lol and let us know the results. As the issue began after removing AVG then you should try installing the same or you could perform a system restore following the link below:

System Restore

Keep us posted with the results so we can advise you further.
