Windows logo key issue

Hi all, I am having an issue with my windows logo key not working. I have done many searches and have yielded nothing that would be a solution. I don't know if there is a turn on/off or if a known program disables it or not.

I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, any help would be greatly appreciated.

There is no switch for it that I know of. I would suspect that it is either a defective keyboard or driver. What are you using?

Hello Mich,

You might see if this may the issue, but it does sounds like it may be a G11 keyboard driver issue. Be sure to have a Windows 7 driver installed for it.
